Re: Z3M V8 Conversion

The theory was correct then about the heat soak. I wonder if you could additionally shield it from the engine or provide some air cooling onto that part.

A quick search on realoem is telling me the 2.0 and 2.8 shared the same manifold so the pipes should be the same size but there was a variation where the manifold incorporated cats as well but not sure which ones were fitted with those.

Re: How to identify S50 engines - Z3M vs M3 3.0 vs M3 3.2

The easiest way to distinguish between a S50B30 and S50B32 is that a B30 only has a single vanos whereas the B32 has a double vanos plus the rocker covers are different. I seriously doubt it would have had a B30 fitted as the wiring and ECU are different for each varient.
