M50 swap dinan throttle body 3.5HFM

hey guys... so I heard doing the m50 swap on an s52 motor will lose torque? is it not worth doing? I'm also putting the dinan BBTB on it with a 3.5 HFM and a 3.5 dinan intake. my rev limit is still at 6500 so idk if I should even do all those things. FYI I got all those parts free except for m50 manifold.

The M50 manifold losses power below about 4000 RPM, increases it above 4000.

When we put a Turner Stage 4 kit on our M Roadster (S52) we kept the stock manifold since the car is street driven only.

For a track car, I would put the M50 manifold on.

if I do the m50 swap do I have to get a chip to make it go to 7k rpm?
if I do what's the best chip to put on it I know there's quit a few of them out there

I don't think so.

I like the Turner/Conforti.

I prefer to keep teh ASC system intact for a street car.

For a pure track car, IIRC, it is just a connector hose that replaces the ASC section.

wouldn't it create a bottle neck affect if the asc isn't deleted?

Yes, but the ASC may very well save your car.

Which may keep the car from swapping ends and sliding off the road sideways or backwards.

Better tires, driving schools, and using the ASC when on the street.

I race and teach HP driving at local tracks. I leave ASC/DSC ON, when on the street. OFF at the track.

For the most important part of the performance package. The nut behind the wheel.
