Looking for the intake elbows from an early (77-79) BMW E21 (320i) fuel injected motor. I need all 4. They run from the head to the intake plenum. The 528 of the same period used similar, albeit smaller elbows from 77-79. I need the larger ones on the 2.0L

If you're wandering around your local 'yard and find some, let me know.

Should look something like this:

^that is from a 73-74 2002tii which is very rare and expensive, yet pretty much the same as used in the 320i. Found a 2002tii intake on Fleabay for $420 and carpart.com shows them for about $45 for the 320i version.

I may have one from a 320i, I'll check my storage on Monday.

No luck at the shop. The boss is checking his storage barn this evening.

Thanks for looking. I actually found one at the local yard over the weekend (found the I6 one as well for another project) If your Boss finds one, I'll still buy it since y'all went to the trouble and I can find a use for it :)

Thanks again!

Not to worry sir, the boss came up empty also. What are you building?

Cold air intake/airbox for my sidedraft throttle bodies. The runners help tune the intake and relocate the airbox to make it easier to build/mount.
