    230 would be a good figure for this engine. If you want more, you need Schrick or S50B30US Camshaft.

    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

    This rolling road looks like morgans 328i from the e36 forum?

    bmw restricted the 328i to 193bhp to comply with german insurance rules, thats the same reason a couple of audi's and mercs have max bhp figures of 193bhp. bmw did this by fitting the manifold off the 320 and by fitting a baffle/tube in the airbox.

    thats why every body with a 328 changes the manifold. does your local rolling road have a calibration certificate to back up the graph they printed off for you?

    i got this info after reading a heated thread on pistonheads.com. i found the same thing on bimmer forums .com

    cheers LC

    thats been metioned here too hundreds of times.Getting an M50 325 Manifold conversion done is a good mod.It does need a bit of fabrication though in order for it to fit properly with no airleaks.We have a member here that sells an already fabricated manifold that will bolt on directly with no airleaks

    and then a remap will get the best out of this conversion

    Nope, it was another car from the E36 forum. Morgans car has a lot more mods than this one.

    Would the same apply for a 1999 E46 328ci re the remap and exhaust manifold?

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

    hi, and sorry for hi-jacking the thread, but just a quick question for emaps: do you also make chips or just remaps? i have a e36 325i (so no remap, push to fit chip) and i was wondering if you could help me with this torque curve (pic) and also if you could flatten the AFR line a bit, i mean a more constant value all through the rev range and a bit richer. cheers, and sorry for the off-topic.

    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    Sorry, but i dont do the earlier chips anymore, sorry. As for the dyno plots, did the dyno operator give you any advice to the torque and AFR ?

    The manifold conversion only fits the E36 engine, the E46 twin vanos engine is a totally different engine.

    A remap alone works well on this engine, gains are around 15bhp and 20nm of torque.
