    Dave F induction kit (if you can find one) then a chip from a reputable supplier and fitter. A good service will do wonders. Maybe have the injectors cleaned. Remove cats or have sports cats put in.

    The guy with the knowledge would be Alpina527,He knows about tuning these engines.
    I believe you can put in US M3 cams...Definately a Dave-F kit if you can find one.A performance exhaust

    Has good dyno proven gains! Good use of heat sheild to keep incoming air cool and stop engine bay heat from mixing with it. Heat sheild also creates a ram air effect if cold air feed is set up well.

    defo, as previously said, intake (CAI), exhaust (headers and de-cat) and remap. very good as a first step. i think the gain will be between 20 and 30bhp. for me, those mods managed to squeeze an extra 20bhp, but i dont have a CAI, only K&N air filter in the OEM box. probably a good 5 more bhp, if i decide to fit a CAI also. next i'd go for an M3 multi-throttle intake. almost bolt-on. then, it would prolly be a good idea to start thinking about the head: polished and larger ports, tougher valve springs and while you're at it, fast road cams. at least, this is my plan for my car. cheers!
