    hi. ive a e39 535 v8 and wondered if anybody has any decent tuning tips for this engine? i have pretty good mechanical knowledge so im up for trying most things.
    i previously built a 320bhp cavalier turbo and feel that my 535 lacks abit low down till it gets going, but still impressed after 4000rpm,
    any tips are appreciated.

    Mark I've moved this thread into the Tuning Forum for you

    Have you considered a remap?

    You could seek advice from our forum vendors Emaps, motechmike and AP Tuning

    Could look into getting the head ported and a re-map to increase the torque. That will give you an increase in low down grunt and flattern out the rev range.
