I there,
Yes I did installed as the torque converter is part of the BMW Performance Power kit for cars with automatic gearshift.
Apparently this torque converter can handle higher values of torque and therefore avoids unnecessary problems caused for this increase of power/torque.

Oh, so Part No. 1 is replaced by this pipe?

http://de.bmwfans.info/parts/catalog..._air_duct_agr/

Is it more solid than the original one?

I just ask, because mine is connected with the original pipe (Part No. 1)

Thats correct.
From what i heard the original can handle without real problems up to 360-370nm.
This can handle a little bit more up to 400-410.

Torque converter is a part that normally gets affected with "hard" remaps
