Hello,

I am having a hard time getting used part for my e36. I would need a lower air intake manifold (part number 1247493) for my M43B18 SOHC engine, however, th only ones I could find are for the M42 or M44 DOHC engine (part number 1247263 or 1247265).

Can someone confirm if these parts are interchangeable or not? according to these two diagrams, they look really similar:

Big thanks in advance!

I wouldn't trust the appearance in the parts drawings. They may have used the same drawing for both parts list, when they are actually quite different.
Since we didn't get the M43 in the States, we don't know much about them. I'd hate for you to buy a lower intake for an M42 or M44 and find out it won't fit an M43.
