    What tuning options are there for the E36 323,

    I been reading that you can put the 328 exhasut on which might open a few hp, but surely your going to lose torque as the 323 is a 4-2-1 system where as the 328 is a 4-1 system.

    ALso you can put the M50 inlet manifold on? How can I tell the difference between the manifolds looking at them?

    What kind of power gains have you guys with a 323 got and what mods have you done?

    Cheers

    M50 manifold conversion + remap is good for around 20hp

    Easy to tell the difference...the branches on an M50 are quite a bit thicker then on the M52 manifold.

    I have a 1998 E36 323i SE with the following mods

    M50 manifold
    K&N 57i GENii cold air intake
    Full exhaust system consisting of stainless manifold, hofmann sport cat and peco back box.
    performance remap by a vendor off this forum.

    They have definetly made a change to the whole car but have yet to get it dyno tested, she sounds lovely too and the exhaust burbles nicely
