    hi iv got a 323i with all the usual mods apart form us m3 spec cams , was wondering what else i can do to get a little bit more power ?

    ive seen some racing exhaust manifolds for sale unsure weather these would make much diffrence , if not id be looking to change parts for lighter weight items .
    hope you can help guys

    A few you may not have thought of?

    Lightweight flywheel

    Racing clutch

    Under pulley cam kit

    Oil catch can

    Big bore throttle body

    Rear differential ( lsd or change ratio )

    Short shift gear selector



    As for stainless steel manifolds, I have only ever heard good and promising things about them

    Wouldnt it be cheaper to buy a more powerful engine and slot that in? Not being funny, but for the cost of a lot of mods to be bunged in and then for it to be re-mapped etc you'd be much better off sourcing an M Engine....

    ......If you want to go down the highly strung high powered smaller lump. JRE build race engines and are really reliable. 2 of the 3 rally cars we have have JRE engines. Both producing 208/210bhp out of a normally aspirated 1400cc. Rev to around 9700 and go alright.

    dane36323:ive got bbtb an lsd and a light weight fly wheel and the short shift .not to sure on the under drive pullys

    StK: its a 96 e36 323i, so far as above plus 325i exhaust ,m50 manifold,cai dont think ive left anything out.

    Amos: its not to bad because ive not paid for all the mods the guy before me did them all so it hasnt cost me to do them , and yes i defo agree with what you say about cost of mods for a small amount of hp.
    think ill look into the m engine and jre. but im sure the insurance would rape me for it tho lol .

    thanks for your replys guys

    Not a problem mate, sounds like you have come to an end now really. The pulleys are supposed to work really well on the stresses of the engine and acceleration. M3 US cams go together well with the cam kit too :
