Default QuickShark's 2001 M3 E46 StahlGrau : The ///M-Shark

Hi all, my name is Chihab, i'm a bimmer from Morocco, and here's my car, it's 2001 M3 E46 StahlGrau (i bought it from a friend 4 months ago),it's a 6 manual gearbox with 70200 miles. All BMW recalls were done (LSD was changed by a new one at 25000 miles). The first thing i did when i got the car is to take off the 18" OEM wheels and to put 19" OEM Motorsport Wheels that i bought from the same friend that sold me the car and who now got an E92 M3 (he bought 19" BBS LM for his E92 M3). I was also thinking of puting CSL intake (i found a full CSL engine for sell) but it was too expensive and the guy refused to sell it without the full engine.
Here are some pics of the car as it's now.

I'm finally taking time to post the install of the OEM CSL airbox on my M3, here we go :

So here's the OEM CSL airbox, i bought it in April from the same guy who sold me the OEM CSL front bumper and rear diffuser (all parts came from a wrecked CSL).





















For the install, I took off all the intake manifold system



Wires num 1 and 3 of the MAF plug must be cut then plugged in the OEM CSL IAT







I decided to keep the dipstick and not to install the CSL one, because the last is shorter than the one of the normal M3 and it will be under the airbox. Every time i'll check the oil level i must take off the airbox, not a good idea at all.

So i rotated the dipstick to make it as far as possible from the airbox, and i put a rubber gasket so the dipstick will not scratch the airbox.





I also changed the vent hose, the one of the normal M3 is shorter than the one used on the CSL



Job done!



I took the M3 to O2 Reprog in Casablanca, the car is now running on Alpha-N

Impressions? This is a MUST! The sound is gorgeous! The car is much much more powerful

I'll post some vids soon.

Some new pics of the car :
