The heat shield is the issue it's not a snug fit. However, I don't know how snug it's on the 325i. Make sure you use a heat shield other wise you'll loose performance not gain. The other thing you can do is build your own heat shield. In the past the E36 board had some postings on how to do this.

Despite what some people on this board might say I personally felt there was a slight performance boost. Check the E36 board for more positive comments on this type of mod. Also I have the temperature sensor that fits into the air cleaner just hanging. I don't know if the E36 has this type of sensor, but there was no place to put it with the ECIS system. I also thought my gas mileage might suffer because of this sensor not being placed in the air flow, but I haven't noticed any deterioration. Sorry no pictures.

how will does the heat shield fit?

details please!!! =P


thanx in advance!
