    With a bigger throttle body (courtesy of CA Automotive), cold air induction kit & exhaust you should be looking at about 220 - 230bhp. I think the throttle bodies are £250ish, £150 for the cold air intake, £400 for an exhaust, and £250 for a remap from one of the forum vendors - so just over a grand all told. Do it in stages, get the remap done last... then enjoy

    Personally I wouldn't do the 330i manifold, a lot of effort for not a lot of gains.

    Performance BMW has featured a couple of Z3's lately, might be worth digging through their archives

    Thanks,

    Just did a search on their website and the only references (albeit titles) were for the Z3M models with the bigger engine. - I dont subscribe to the magazine.

    Cheers
