    Hey bimmer mates

    Looking for some off your great advice guys,I'm looking at upgrading my engine for the show's nxt year i was thinking 328 or 325 mine is the 318is 1998 just now.

    I am thinking of upgrading and kind off thinking turbo aswell,not looking for just power though as i drive this car most days so i want a quick car when it's need to be (wink wink) not after massive bhp or unrelible power,any thoughts on best engine for the job 328 or 325 plus thinking off turbo with the engine i can get either engine easy enough

    So best engine to have ???

    Thoughts and where to source turbo equipment names off places ????

    Thanks guy's

    I would of thought the 328 would be the only way to go if yours is a 98 as you'll be needing an OBDII set up i think. Don't think the 325 was built late enough so you'd have problems getting it to work. For forced induction though the 325 is lovingly known as being the stronger of the 6 pot blocks so I'd be more inclined to just go out and pick up a 325, sell the iS and go from there. That's me though, I'm lazy.
