    do you mean the whole inlet manifold?
    not sure the m50 fits, you have a pic of your engine?

    M50 manifold won't fit your M52TU engine.

    I believe you can stick on a 330 inlet manifold, but I don't know too much about this. Someone else should be able to give more details.

    The E36 model you can do this M50 manifold modification to.
    The E36 323 and 328 have M52 engines. Your E46 has an M52TU engine.
