Intake manifold questions.

My friend has an 87 325i and we are doing a little bit to it. I was wondering if the intake manifold from my 90 325i would fit and work sense we have to take his off and I have an extra one?

My original key had the light in it and the plastic broke. So I got a copy without the light and keep the broken one in my wallet. It's saved my ass a few times.

You are right it's the cps. I switched it with another one I had. But now I'm not getting spark. Which connector does the cps plug into I think I might have reversed it when I put it back together.

Problems with a 540i

I found a 540i that I really want to buy the only thing is that he said it runs fine cold but when it heats up it dies. Does anyone know why this is happening and how much it would cost to fix?

I saw a few kits on like the 9th page of ebay. If that doesn't really do it for you, you can probably swap an m20 engine and turbo that.
