Silly me. No cutting involved. The throttles are paired so you need 2 M5 gaskets for the job instead of the 3 you need for the M5.


That you need only one of their kits and that it supplements the stock gaskets, i.e. you still need the stock gaskets.

The Dinan kit is just a few "precision laser cut" paper gaskets that go on either side of the stock rubber pieces.

I've read that you can also use E28 M5 paper gaskets...maybe with one port cut off on each?


Use Dinan part #D760-0235 for around $79.00. You will need two. The change over is somewhere around a 2 to 2 1/2 hour job.
