it would also suck in a lot of dirt (when your offroading) which means it would get clogged up pretty quickly.

Not only the Gear Box.( its rather simple- an adapter plate will do the job)

-Clutch plate( we will have to use the 1.3's flywheel and clutch plate)
-ECM re-wiring- hell of a task.
-Water outlet will be facing the fire wall. its required to dent the firewall and provide a custom water piping+lengthy hoses to connect with the radiator

I am in the project of doing the same :-)

It should.

Yes it can.

I would suggest getting the ECU first though. And I really don't know about the FFE and headers.

Hello everyone,

Try RAM air modifications, the cooler air will make your engine act as if its breathing on Nitrous mix and the FFE is a good idea then you have taken care of the two major work that the engine does one is to suck in air and blow out exhaust = High performance + ECU remap for low end torque = Stupendous performance!!

Look for BMW Ram air systems and there are many aftermarket RAM cold air induction systems available, suggest to have a looksee and gather more data.
