Returning FI M3 to Stock

Team,

BLUF: Seeking assistance to identify the OEM parts I will need to return my AA FI M3 to stock.

BACKGROUND: Purchased a 01 M3 last year that came equipped with AA Gen 3 kit. I love the power, but have had to address a number of leaks during my short period of ownership that is causing me to re-think my need for FI. I have not fully embraced this course of action, but it is an option that I am considering. The car is currently at my indie getting sorted out.

With that said, if I take this road, I have no clue as to what parts I will need to make this happen. I attempted to search the site for some nuggets of information but came up empty. Any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

If you do decide to revert back to stock, I have some of the pieces you will need. Why not sell the car and get a stock M3 to save some labor/headaches for both parties?

A better option would b to find someone to buy your kit and make them give you all the stock stuff

Ask user Norm Caldwell from M3forum.

He just went through this with his ESS blown/intercooled S54 after several years of boost. He is back to NA now. Bought the lower half of my OE airbox as well.

Team,

Thanks for the insightful responses; I will take them all under consideration as I go through my decision making process. Today my indie informed me that all of the leaks have been addressed; however, when he took the car on a test run he noticed that the rpms dialed back when it reached around 5500. He is not sure of the cause but suspect it might be something with fuel delivery. Has anyone experienced this issue?
