Default Front End - Name that part! (rebuild help)

For those of you that missed it, the history of the rebuild is here: http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=138835
On Sunday I took my car apart and this is what it looks like now.


Here are all the pieces I took off and what happened to my JTD underpanel.





I took the bumper and grill in today to get painted, but I now need to order all the front end parts. I have most of them on my list, but I am not sure on all the plastic pieces around the auxiliary fan and the radiator. I want all of the pieces other than the stock under panel. I plan on bending mine back. Here some of the parts that I am not so sure on:

AC System Front Air Duct 51711977046
http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...51&fg=75&hl=12
Splash Panel 51712250643
http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...1&fg=75&hl=102
Splash Panel Rubber 17112227690
http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts...1&fg=75&hl=102

Braymond might be able to help me out. I have attached a picture he took during his amazing transformation . I want to know the part number of the shroud around the top and side of the aux fan.


Thanks for all your help!

May i suggest something?

Now that you have the front end virtually stripped.

Go and get yourself some UUC underdrive pulleys, and the fan delete mod.

that is probably the single worst thing that one can do on a street car. for about 2 hp you are sacrificing your engine's primary means of cooling and relying on a pusher fan.

I don't care to have the engine overheat when it gets hot out and plus I don't care to have my oil pump nut come off by changing the natural frequency/resonance. Pulleys contribute to the problem when in connection with a ltw flywheel and M50 manifold, because people rev their engines more. I plan on sticking on the M50 eventually but not the other mods. Plus this is my daily driver.

Anybody got any ideas on the parts?

That's all some cars have. Mechanical fans tend to be only on RWD cars, and ive seen some higher power V6s and V8s in FWD vehicles with smaller CFM electric fans.

And 2 hp? Isnt that more than some Shitty 300$ CAI would give?

I don't give a damn about any mods right, I just want to put my car back together!

it's not one shroud, it's two pieces:

FOR VEHICLES WITH
AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEM
06 AIR DUCT, LEFT 1 09/1993 51718156247
06 AIR DUCT, RIGHT 1 09/1993 51718156248

It's a pain in the ass to install, i couldn't even begin to describe in text, or words how to get them in.

Ill agree, but I bought my car without it, and have run some hard track days and never a hint of over-heating.

Mines deleted as well. Although I did a complete cooling system replacement and have an upgraded water pump.

At speed, more air flows through there than the fan can pull anyways.

Deleting the fan is not a bad idea if you are replacing it with an electric one..
