Hi folks,  04 E61  530d bought at 115k mls.  Was grand apart from thermostat and manifold until engine siezed at 145k. Regular oil changes before needed.  Anyway I paid some dudes to fit a 2nd hand engine. This turned out to be more trouble than they or I expected.  When I eventually got the car back it ran ok for a week but then has no power above 1500 rpm. Starts and idles fine so I guess a vacuum or turbo sensor problem.  Any ideas where to look? Can inpa activate or talk to turbo? They also broke the clock spring in steering column so airbag lights were on along with no horn. 

Ist pic , I guess this should be fixed to something?

2nd  this resistor on diagnostic port, what's it for?

Bought an e3touring to keep me going, e61 is virtually worthless unless running well and then only about €1700.

Ist pic looks like pressure sensor. Either exhaust back pressure (after turbo) or exhaust manifold pressure (before-turbo). They both mount to a plastic bracket which mounts to side of engine. Not the end of the world if the bracket is missing. You might find an alternative place to secure it.
