A nearly bolt-on fitment solution - with a power gain - to the midpipe section for E30 cars running a M50 engine swap - M50, M52, S50, S52.MUST HAVE

the BimmerWorld TrackCAB front control arm bushing brackets
The BimmerWorld Track Pipe for the M50 swap consists of our front E36 Y-Pipe and center resonator. This setup was developed for the E36 3-series cars as part of our racing exhaust. The Y-Pipe has been designed and engineered to time the exhaust gas pulses just like long-tube equal length headers by using a proper merge collector. We have this setup on a E30 S52 at our shop and it's a tight fit but works in the E30 chassis when used with our TrackCAB front control arm bushings and brackets. The TrackCABs are required because the stock bushing brackets are too large. The center resonator is lower than a full custom system but would only be a problem on extremely low cars.
Because this is an E36 part any E36-style muffler section will bolt on (but will require its own modifications to mount to the body. Our car is using this with our MagnaFlow E36 muffler with a very small modification (click here for the full system
). Complete custom rear sections can be used too.
This is as close to a bolt-on M50 swap exhaust system as you'll find anywhere. Made by MagnaFlow in the USA for BimmerWorld.Disclaimer: these sections were originally designed for an entirely different car (E36). They do fit the E30 chassis rather well but just like any retrofit, some modification is required. These modifications are small in comparison with the M50 swap already carried out. With that being said we are pleasantly impressed at how close these parts are right out of the box. If you have any questions on this system, please don't hesitate to give us a call or email!Notice of Emissions Non-Compliance.
