    Hello,

    Tomorrow I'm fitting my wet nitrous kit from my other car to my '97 e36.

    I haven't had the beemer long and it's only a run-about so I don't really know much about how strong these engines are. I just use it to jump in and drive.

    Is the 8v m43 engine fairly decent?

    N2O is fairly safe anyway. Although I don't have a progressive controller, I've run 50hp shots before on my other car without problems. I'm going to put some 100 shot jets in there and see how that goes.

    Anybody used nitrous on these engines before?

    Never used N2O personally but....

    The M43 is not a strong block compared to others in the e36 range, it's also relativley low powered when you consider the M42 and M44 blocks run an extra 30ish bhp with the same displacments and the M40 and M43. Whether it will cope with an extra 100bhp, esspecially the way N20 delivers it, i don't know.

    What i will say is that the brakes on them aren't great so i would consider up-rateing them if you want to use more power safely.
