WoW - I surprised BMW accepted that design - disgusting! I would imaging a good set of headers would make for a significant improvement. Keep us posted!!!

mandrel bending is very expensive.. They probably said we met the crankshaft hp and torque targets and called it a day.

bosch, siemens.. already make a stand alone. Just gotta flash the code. It's not bush league/mickey mouse setup like the honduhs as the DME's built into BMW already track, can tune and control all functionalities.

Damn the stock exhaust manifold looks like shit. Dump those things for some headers immediately. As far as that design im not surprised at all. My E39 M5 and E36 M3 stock exhaust manifolds look like shit too. Very similar to the E60 and headers on my E39 also give 35hp like the E60 you have. And on my E36 headers give that about 25hp. The best stock M car manifold ive seen was on my E46 and even that wasnt that good but it was the best stock one ive seen on any Mcar before.

Wow. Obviously weren't too concerned about heat around the block.

Did you mean that with just header and no exhaust bolted on or with full exhaust. Because without the exhaust it would definately be no back pressure. But with full exhaust it should be fine
