I knew the 'M' bit :wink: just interested in S50 or S52 (yes, they put a few in that shell).

Been there done that with an e36 evo - lot of fun in the wet :lol:

I have a great pic of the engine out of the car - will upload and post after :D

Had an ACS pipe on mine - sounded awesome when it was in the zone - not the kind of noise you expect from a road car ... :shock: 8)

WD :D

S52's were for the US market, do you mean the S54's (The E46 M?) Power in the S50 is the same as the E36 but they had to lower it slightly (325bhp) for the S54 due to the exhaust routing (officially, unofficially its suspected that it was due to the bearing shell failures that the E46's were plagued with)

Thought about a different exhaust , but not overly keen on how the ACS looks on the Coupe - mine have been tweaked internally anyway and sound a bit more aggressive than the standard backboxes...
