2008 BMW 128i  [5.00]
Just installed my DISA manifold.
6 hours in total. The items connected to the bottom are the trickiest and took 2 hours to solve. More on that sometime later. Everything went back in quick.

I love the boost from 4-6k. Will see how the DME adapts, dont think i need a tune so soon. I always felt the car was Jakyl and Hyde after 4k.
Now it truly is. I guess for track a tune is needed vs just a manifold.

I wonder if stock 128i tune is different from 328i, maybe it will adapt different.

EDIT: DISA update: 1 tank of gas later, and the best part is the low end torque for traffic/ street driving. Fuel econ is improved by about 0.5 l/100. The "Flat spot" is a non issue with 6mt & I don't notice it unless I am looking for it.

I posted about Magnaflow direct replacement catted headers/exhaust manifold in the e90post n52
