I didn't do it for a mod, I needed a muffler and it was a cheap option. There are no real tangible performance up grades on the e36 unless you supercharge or turbo it. The car is pretty much tuned to...

Make sure you read how to bleed the cooling system correctly. After a proper bleed and it still overheats, check for head gasket failure.

Do an auto to manual swap. I did it and so have many others. If you shop wisely, you can do it for about $1000. There are many write ups on the interweb.

Hey OP, we don't do that here. Go to the other forum or be a gentlemen. If you don't like the answer just sit back and wait for more reply's. That's no way to reply to someone trying to help you.

Do a fluid and filter change first. Make sure you use the correct fluid. Then go from there. Could be just a clogged filter if it wasn't changed as part of the swap.

Now that he knows it starts, I agree with South Park. I was just trying to tell him the cheapest route in case he toasted his engine. I have the Mishimoto in mine and it has served me well.
