Re: Phenolic Intake Manifold Spacer

Ive seen an EGR on a 90 deg upper. Used longer tube but it's an eyesore. Also, if you read the old posts there, i think it was MC2 that did some testing and deemed the EGR to be non funcitonal on the XR.

Definitely! If you were gonna spend $600 on a BMW VAM, then I would just PiMP it. You've done so much work to the car that swapping in a VAM for smog will worth the effort.

Re: Phenolic Intake Manifold Spacer

Re: Phenolic Intake Manifold Spacer

Re: Shopping for the XR4Ti for Christmas

They are alloy and since there's no poly to squish to get the bolts threaded, you can use the stock ones instead of the allen cap screw bolts that MC2 sells.
