    Hey, so I'm new to this and iv'e had my cab for 2months now and i need more power already... Would really like to increase the acceleration 0-60. not too worried about top end as I don't have the roads around for that.
    Idealy mods that wont increase the fuel intake too much.
    Read a lot about the M50 manifold and chipping it but never seen any after feed back.
    Would really appreciate any advice.

    I will pm you some info on my manifold/bbtb kit. This is the first step in tuning the m52 for more power.

    Check out the tuning forum, there is a thread for dyno graphs with a few m50 manifold conversion & remap results.

    M50 manifold and remap should get you to close to 200bhp, but you can also keep your eye out for an M3 LSD, or just a regular diff from a 325.

    These were 3.15 ratio rather than the 2.93 you have fitted, so you will get slightly better acceleration.
