    Hi Jay. I have moved your thread to the tuning section where you may get a better response...

    First thing I would do to a 323 is to fit the 325i M50 inlet manifold and throttle body and a remap. This is good for approx 30bhp. Then I would look at fitting a 328i exhaust system as these are twin pipe all the way through and less restrictive. Will these mods i would expect to see approx 200 bhp...

    The manifold kit that I supply includes a bigger bore m52 body and asc body. These retain the original sensors. It works very well on an auto
