    Hi Guys,

    New to the forum but have owned many Bimmers in the past. Question is, I have a 325Ci and I'm getting a 3 stage manifold from a 330i or 530i to gain more HP. What I need to know is do I get a 330i ECU and have that flashed or can the one I have now be flashed correctly for the 3 stage manifold. I have read alot about the conversion but not found much about the ECU. Also I know that the ECU's are coded to the VIN so how do I get round this if I have to use the 330i ECU.

    Thanks,

    Martin

    we have reprogrammed 325i ecu's to 330i's many many times for people who have fitted the 330i engine to there car

    This way you still keep your correct details of the car,original keys Ews and locks

    We have also blanked and supplied these ecu's so they could be programmed to another car by a bmw dealer or good Indy with Autologic

    Is the manifold from the 330i a inlet or exhaust ?

    You would be better off remapping the car to get more power or changing the engine to a 3.0i from the 330i e46

    Thanks for looking at my thread bwchiptune,
    The manifold is from a 330i or a 530i and it's the intake. I have read on a forum that the 3.0l intake will work on the 2.5l. This was on a e90 325i. The guy just swapped the intakes over then did a remap so the ecu would work with the 3.0l intake. The difference in the intakes are that the 2.5l is a single stage and the 3.0l is a 3 stage. Now all I need is someone to verify that this will also work on my e46 325Ci

    Thanks,

    Martin

    Martin this is only on the e90 325i and 125i which have the 3.0i engine fitted 218bhp

    The e46 325i is completely different and this will not work in your case

    The most amount of extra power you are going to get is by remapping your car
