Dude I’ve been looking non stop, the 3.5” 540 or euro housing appears to be the same but the HFM doesn’t look like it will sit as deep as it needs to be. Take a look and let me know what you think.
I was going to make this same exact thread haha the eventuri has the perfect solution, but I doubt you can get one without the intake as a whole.

You can buy the Eventuri MAF housing separately. I acquired about it. Shipping to the States will be pricey though.

Where’s the aluminum one?


The sending method is what I have realized may be the way, or use the top of the e46 M intake whole somehow.

I took measurements of the stock flange today with my calipers, bolt hole distance and the inner orifice, i can confirm that the one PITT M3 RR posted, does in fact fit...
