    To be honest mate that is a lot of dollar for what it is. All of the ATB kits on the market for the M42 are mega money and i would imagine they still require an upgrade on the electronics

    Your best bet is to get some 3.0ltr M3 trottle bodies and delete the centre section. It will require some machining and you will need to upgrade the ECU but that would be the way i would go.

    It will also look the nuts

    Would be much cheaper to speak to Alpina527 to enlarge your standard throttle body.

    If looking towards ITB's rather than a single enlarged throttle body look at http://dbilas.de/dbilas_eng/index.htm

    Or you can make your own as described by BMW IOW above to produce something like the below. To be honest ITB's are more of a finishing touch or a way to run silly cams rather than making much power off them.

    If your looking at spending that amount of money I'd recommend a 2.1 conversion.

    My mate had a puegeot 205 gti with ITB's and it woke up dead people that how loud it made it so will it do the same with the bimmer or would u need to do further mods apart from an ecu remap ofcourse?

    That was running on a standalone ECU. Made a fantastic noise, but I wouldn't say it was that loud!
