Really cool OP. I love it. Cant wait to see the results. A lot of cars pull air from that area of the engine and have no issue, plus you're relocating the IAT sensor. Should perform well in my opinion, especially when you have adequate ducting.

Cut up another manifold to make a wall piece:

The bump on the outside of the manifold helps clear the trumpets inside the box:

Sounds badass. By the way, which exhaust do you have? Sorry if its already been answered.

My car came with a full Magnaflow. Trying to decide if its worth investing thousands to replace each section with an aftermarket component including the headers.

Now if only the alpha N tune wasn't so expensive, I'd be all over this

All my mods are in my sig link~ Its a full magnaflow gen 1.

Just do headers imo. SGT is your best bang for buck unless you find used.

Lol, here I'm comparing my exhaust to yours thinking mine sucks and we have the same one

I'm retarded haha. I just haven't heard it outside the car so don't have a clear idea of what it sounds like. May need to have the wife do a drive by while I stand outside.

Thanks for the info.

Might be the best sounding M3 I've ever heard. That exhaust is sick.
