    ok guys had a look on the forum search ill admit not a great detailed trawl as everytime i put 328 in it removed it for the search grr.

    anyway ive sourced a 328 lump cheap with everything i need
    engine with manual box
    pedel box
    prop
    exhaust
    ecu
    dme or watever its called along with the key for the chip to transfer to my key

    now ive been looking into turboing but i have alot of plans for the car bodywork wise so thats on the back burner and i mean probly not till a good year i may start podering it again.
    so while the engine is out im wanting to spruce her up abit.
    whats worth doing on it for example bottom end shells ect
    cams?
    i will be doing the m50 manifold and bbtb mods along with a remap. is there any other mods i can do to squeeze every inch of power from a standard engine

    cheers in advance guys

    Forget the manifold buy the biggest turbo you can find the biggest injectors you can find and wack em on! Plenty of power

    I think it has been covered a lot, there's even a mods dedicated thread, but here you go: apart from M50, BBTB and remap, you can fit a CAI and exhaust as "stage one". After that, it gets expensive, with cams, pistons, head work (ported, polished) and so on. You can, however make it faster without altering the power any more, by fitting close ratio LSD, LTW alloys, stripping out interior.
    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    I have never really looked into the close ratio lsd's what is classed as close ratio? And what's normal LSD?how much would one cost? Sorry to bump thread but save starting a new one :p

    cheers for that ill have another search see if i can find the mods threads.
    ive got the air feed side of things sorted and exhaust i was thinking of a decat. the m50 manifold and bbtb is on the list for it. ive read about using us m3 cams but unsure what gains they would give me
    not keen on changing pistons and that as of yet. above the pistons as in head work im open to play with

    @niall: close or short ratio refers to the final ratio of the diff (lsd or open). The shorter the ratio, the faster the acceleration. However, the top end speed will get lower. Say for example, you have a 2.93 diff ratio (as most of the 328i). If you use a 3.46, your acceleration will improve considerably, but at the expense of some top speed. The bigger that number, the shorter the ratio, which means the shorter the gears.

    @drew: I would look the thread up for you mate, but i'm mobile now. If you don't find it by the time I get home, i'll post it from the computer.
    US M3 cams will help a lot, but they're pretty hard to find. But bear in mind that most of the mods, like free flow exhaust and cams, will move the torque higher in the rpm range, making your car feel less torquey for daily driving (but faster at wot).

    its going to be a daily driver yeah other than normal rebuild parts like a headgasket ect i was just after a few extras to give her some oomph the diff sounds like its going to be a good part in what im after

    if you could find the thread that would be great ive had a another look and seem to find the same gthing which is the actual conversion and info on bhp figures or others asking about m50 manifolds
