Our Header Install Kit is a complete kit for installing the M52 manifolds called for in the SpecE46 racing class. Don't waste your time reinstalling old, useless hardware, and save yourself from hunting around to find all the ideal pieces for finishing your installation; this is everything you need in one kit. Note that 16 studs is correct for many M54 cylinder heads. Although some early heads had 24 studs most that we have seen are 16 and BMW parts diagrams call for 16. If you want extra studs, see the Related Items links below.
