Intake / Exhaust Help
 
I have a 320i 1989 6cyl 2.0 and I want to do a full chrome intake on it. Does anyone know where I can find an up to date MAF sensor for the car (instead of having that big block excuse MAF). Basically a MAF built into a straight pipe. Also looking for piping that will have the ports for the vacumn system. It's the tubing that goes from the carb to the MAF. Does anyone make those?

Also need to replace my exhaust but I figured go aftermarket. Any recomendations?

Just bought the car and want to turn it from a beater to something awsome but staying street legal since I drive to work with it.

I am open for any suggestions since I'm new to BMWs

*spell check didn't work for me*

Most aftermarket intakes don't increase horse power at all, in some cases even lose a few. I wouldn't waste the money on one.

if you want to make it awesome .. stay away from anything chrome. leave the intake stock since you won't gain any hp. you will only succeed in making the car louder.

or the better response, doing a afm to maf conversion is a PITA and not worth the time or money. just slap a cone filter on there and call it good until you do a motor swap

Not sure if Miller makes a MAF conversion for a 320i but I put one on my M20 525i and trust me, it's great.

$350 and 30 minutes = noticeably better response, torque, and horsepower = worth it :thumbup:
