If you need to replace your filter, recharge your reusable pod filter, or upgrade your intake, turbos, or intercooler parts, everything can be found below. We have OEM replacements as well as aftermarket performance upgrades to keep your BMW pristine, powerful, and functioning at peak efficiency.

M50 Manifold Conversion Adapter Kit (To install OBDI manifold on an M52/S52)

This kit includes everything to fit an OBDI M50 manifold to an OBDII M52 or S52 engine (1996-1999). It takes the guesswork out of adding the M50 manifold to your engine. The kit includes a CNC machined adapter, with all hardware and gaskets, that allows the freer flowing M50 manifold to be installed while maintaining full function of M52/S52 components including factory PCV cyclone / oil seperator valve. No vacuum leaks, no check engine lights. And the entire kit is completely reversible. Turner Motorsport has dealt with the problems from other kits and this adapter block is by far the best solution.

The base price of this kit does not include the M50 manifold. You can pick up a used manifold from a 1992-1995 E36 325i or a 1995 M3 3.0 liter. You can find them in local junk or scrap yards, online at Craigslist or eBay, or from various forums. If you would rather not deal with the potential pitfalls of a used part, we can offer a new Original BMW manifold to go with the adapter. While expensive, the new manifold is guaranteed to be in perfect condition with no cracks, warping, or foreign objects hidden inside. A new factory BMW manifold can be added to your order by selecting the option above.

With the introduction of the 1996 model year came the OBDII emissions compliant engine. Among the many changes the OBDII engines received was a more restrictive air intake manifold. Where the older M50/S50 engines continued to make power up in the higher RPMs, the newer M52/S52 ran out of breath, limiting high-end horsepower, but boosting low-end torque. Converting the OBDII cars to the 1995 and earlier OBDI manifold is a popular modification to remove this high-rpm restriction.

To best maximize the horsepower gains of this modification, you should be using the M50 manifold with bigger cams, HFM, injectors, and software. We have found this combination of upgrades and software to yield the best results for producing top-end power. Note: using the M50 manifold shifts the power band higher in the RPM range. This is GREAT for track cars but not well-suited for street cars where the OBDII manifold works best to produce torque at lower RPM. Presently, we do not have software tuned for only the M50 manifold without cams or the HFM upgrade. Check our website again for future product releases. We currently offer custom mapped Shark Injectors for these packages:
E36 M3 - 3.5" HFM/24lb injectors/Schrick cams/stock OBDII manifold
E36 M3 - 3.5" HFM/24lb injectors/Schrick cams/M50 manifold

Optional fuel rail cover. The standard M52/S52 fuel rail cover is too tall for the M50 manifold and does not have the proper brackets for securing it in place over the fuel rail. We can correctly modify the stock M52 fuel rail cover for you to complete the factory appearance.

Part#: TMS3431
In Stock
Starting at $94.95
Free Shipping on orders $49 and up
This is a replacement ITG foam air filter for use in the Conforti or Eurosport Intake. The ITG filter was chosen for its superior airflow over other types of cone filters while still retaining strong filtration capabilities. ITG may not be as famous in America as other brands, but it's one of the most popular filters in Europe and Asia. ITG Filters can be found in Championship-winning Touring Cars, Japanese SuperGT winners, ALMS, Grand-Am, and even Formula 1.

These filters come in 3" and 3.5" opening (see below for applications) or check your filter box for correct appliaction.

Click here for approved cleaning methods for ITG foam filters.  Filters do not come pre-oiled so we strongly recommend purchasing a can of dust retention oil at the same time as a new filter.

Applications:
3.5": all Euro HFM kits (E36 M3, MZ3), E46 330, E46 325 M56 SULEV, E39 530, E39 540, Z3 3.0
3.0": all other models not listed above (E36 M3/MZ3 with stock HFM, E36 325/328, E46 323/328, E39 525/528, Z3 2.3/2.8)

E36 325/328/M3 intake with US 3.0" HFM
E36 M3 intake with Euro 3.5" HFM
Maximum Flow Pro5R Filter


This air intake system produces up to 20 horsepower, 25 lbs. x ft. torque and out-flows the factory intake by up to 80%. Included in this system is a washable/reusable conical air filter that uses five layers of oiled cotton gauze filter for maximum performance. This intake system also features a rotomolded tube that replaces the stock intake tract and directs increased air flow with improved volumetric efficiency for maximum performance. This intake system incorporates a unique coupling that smoothens the air transition into the intake tract, and also allows this kit to fit on both US and EURO Mass Air Flow Sensors. A one-piece black powder-coated heat shield requires little to no assembly for a hassle free installation.

5 aFe conical filter: aFe has maximized the space available in the E36 engine compartment to fit the largest available cone filter. For maximum flow and the highest horsepower gain, the Pro 5R oiled cotton gauze filter is used. The Pro 5R is a 5-layer progressive layered, oiled cotton gauze material that allows maximum air flow while trapping dust and dirt. It's a re-useable filter that needs only a shake and rinse to be cleaned and occasional re-oiling. This kit is also available with a maintenance free paper filter.

One-piece precision cut heat shield: The air filter is housed in a one-piece, black powdercoated 1.6mm heat shield that keeps warm engine air out for maximum performance. This one-piece heat shield uses factory mounting locations and comes with all hardware for a hassle-free installation.

Compatible with most aftermarket HIDs: This system was designed to clear larger style HID headlight housings.

One kit to Fit Both US and Euro HFMs: aFe has re-engineered their systems so that the same kit is used for either the US or Euro HFM. The filter and tubing was optimized for use with the 3.5" HFM and a special adapter was engineered to work with the stock 3.0" HFM. This is a bonus for cars with the stock HFM as they get the larger filter and intake tract!
Note: on cars with a 3.5" HFM an adapter is required to fit the HFM to the stock throttle body boot. Select this from the options below.
If you are removing the factory ASC traction control we recommend getting the Samco Silicone Intake Boot. Select this from the options below.

Please note: If you are planning to use any 3.5" HFM on your E36 M3, be SURE you are using the correct set of injectors and software too.

This item fits the following BMWs:
1992-1999 E36 BMW 325i 325is 325ic 328i 328is 328ic M3

This 3.5" HFM is used in our OBD-II Performance Packages on the 1996-1999 E36 M3 (and MZ3 S52). This is a Plug & Play and seamless kit built using a Porsche HFM, custom wiring harness adapter, and harness mounting bracket. This HFM is preferred because it has a greater resolution and reads larger quantities of air more precisely than the 540 or Euro M3 HFMs. We have put together this kit to be completely reversible and plug and play using factory plugs and connectors. It requires no splicing or modification of your stock connector harness, avoidng the pitfalls that can come from exposing your factory wiring. Using this without the harness will require you to bridge the grounds of the factory harness together in order for the HFM to send the correct signals to the computer.

The correct software, and related intake components, are required to use this larger HFM! See below for software options from Turner Motorsport. Or click here for our complete list of E36 Performance Packages.

Software Options
Stage 2 - 3.5" HFM, "24lb" injectors
Stage 3 - 3.5" HFM, "24lb" injectors, Schrick camshafts
Stage 3+ - 3.5" HFM, "24lb" injectors, Schrick camshafts, M50 manifold
