    Oh yes they can All E36 328i can be remapped via the round plug diagnostic port under the bonnet apart from April 1995 build to September 1995 build. Just need the required equipment Most pre 1996 are push fit chips, post 1995/96 are soldered.

    Below is an independent dyno plot from a E36 328i 1998 I remapped a few years ago. Car had a larger inlet manifold, throttle body, induction kit and cat back exhaust, made 244bhp from 193bhp

    207bhp on a stock 328i is a little on the high side, however you could have a strong engine, usually they run 193-195bhp. With the manifold, TB, remap and exhaust, 225bhp plus. The difference the remap makes is not so much peak power/bhp but usable low end torque.

    Below is dyno plot from a 328i. I ran the car with manifold, throttle body and induction kit and then wrote the remap specifically for the mods and ran the car again. You can see how the low end torque, from 1800rpm to 4500rpm has lifted to a near flat torque curve from 1800rpm to 6200rpm

    Plot looks fine and variables also look ok, cold day so this helped. No chance of 250bhp without forced induction..lol. However, 244bhp is possible as in the earlier dyno plot of a healthy engine.

    Drop me a email through my website and I can advise a price fitted in your area.
