    Hello everyone
    i'm currently going to college doing a national diploma in vehicle technology and for part of this course we have been given a project car and for the first year of our course we have to rebuild and improve the engines and try to gain as much extra bhp/torque as we can on a budget.
    the budget is more than likely gonna be under £1k for the rebuild which will have to cover the basics of the rebuild and any mods we choose
    my group have got a e36 320i and was wondering if anyone here has tuned/modded one and if so have you got any suggestions?
    basic ideas i've had so far is
    fpr
    fuel pump
    injectors
    and maybe fitting cams and internals from say 323/325 or 328 engines
    i'm not looking for people to do the work for me just some pointers in the right direction would be well appreciated
    thank you

    Sounds a great project mate am sure people on here will give you loads of pointers. Out of interest is the course part time or full time? am quite interested in doing something like that.

    well a 2.5 swap costs arround 300£ here in lithuania (dont know how much it is in uk) after that it should go well peace by peace. im also doing a small project DIY for about 1000£ myself and its going well so far. im putting 3.73 LSD diff (thats like 150£), CIA (50£), enforcing diff subframe (10£), getting some powerflex mounts (100£), weight reduce (free), gutting cats (free). after that it is possible to put performance cams (arround 180£).

    NOTE: Those prices are in lithuania and in uk it may be different, also all things are done DIY.

    Snap.... would love to do a similar part time course...by the sounds of it Im guessing it would be a full time course tho.

    thanks for the replies
    the course i'm doing is classed as a full time course even tho its only 24hours a week at college.
    sadly cant do a engine sway but will try to blag the engine convo if we got enough money for the engine and parts for a rebuild on the engine (new piston rings, bearings, oil pump, metal water pump and gaskets
    any advice would help thank you

    first and cheapest things to do i would say are either remove completely or break out the contents of the cats as they are the most restrictive part of the exhaust. if your handy with a welder then thats an easy job for you. next step is increase airflow into the engine so maybe get a cheap performance panel filter and then a cold air feed that goes directly into the box. both of these can be done for little money leaving you plenty to spend on things like cams and exhausts ect.

    FPR won't add any power or torque I'm afraid, .
    Neither will fuel pump.
    Injectors, only if you have more air entering and a larger area for the fuel and air to detonate would you see any bigger gains by changing the injectors for larger items, so no real power increase I'm afraid.

    wouldnt it be better and cheaper to get the whole 325i exhaust instead and the gut the cats? about the ait intake i think intake manifold is also restricted on 320i (seen several images on this forum)

    what about gettin a 328 engine and the m50 manifolds and throttle body and exhaust from the 325 . a good look round you would prob get these items cheap. and then get panel filter and give it all a good clean out. should be good difference. what from 150bhp to 240bhp not bad on the budget
