    hi your 320 engine is about as tuned as it can be, so dont go wasting money on engine mods mate, i would do the suspension anti roll bars etc then think about a conversation if you really want to get more power, mine was a 320 auto and is know a 328 manual i would say around 1k if you did it your self would easy cover cost, enjoy the 320 i did like mine and it was not slow

    cheers buddy will look into anti roll bars i love the power of the 320 so in no rush i think i should do the handling first before increase of power!? Silly question but am i right in thinking that the auto box will make it a tad bit slower anyway?
