I am going to swap the EGS out next to see if that fixes the problem. I have an EGS from 2000 323is. Will that work in my 2000 328i? From my understanding the 328 came with a GM box and the 323 had a ZF box. Any ideas?

P.S. I also swapped out the MAF sensor with a spare one i had laying around so that is eliminated from the list of possible causes.

Any help is greatly appreciated as always.
Have you tried clearing the modules adaptation memory?
