Does this apply to M52TUs as well? because I've been reading a lot about the swap and am almost ready to do it, but I'm just held back by this:
Everyone that I've read about had M54s, and everybody still think manuals ALWAYS come with an electric. THIS IS WRONG!
Early manual E46 models have, like mine, a mechanical puller + an electric pusher.
My questions are: when did BMW throw away the dual fan system on manual cars? Is the swap really safe for manual M52TUs? Will a M54 electric fan work?
