    Afternoon all, i havnt owned my bmw for long, and there are a few small issues with it, but i just wanted a little bit of information on some areas.

    I live in Deal, near Dover, and wondered where the best place is for remapping.
    Or is there an option with these cars for chips with the maps on???
    I know there is the option of m50 intake, with the m50 throttle body for added power, but i saw somewhere about using m3 exhaust manifolds for even more power, is this true, if so what type of m3, 3.0 or 3.2, any part numbers???
    Also for any average prices on the above, im in no rush to get something if anything done modification wise, just hoped someone could give helpful advice, or even any idea of what else to do.

    Daniel

    Don't know much about the m3 exhaust to be honest but if it's a late 97 onwards model then there's a high possibility that it can be remapped. Search for bwchiptune dealer in Kent.

    All this info came from a e36 328i t1000's we tuned
    This car had USA m3 cams fitted and made 263bhp
    after we tuned the car the customer fitted m3 exhaust manifolds which then lost power
    This was back in 2006
    Here is the dyno of the car
    Dyno dynamics rolling road at G force on a e36 coupe forum day

    We will have this car on our dyno soon and will be retuning to gain more power soon

    Do you know if this was an expensive upgrade? Also very surprised at the effect of the m3 exhaust manifold..

    Do you know if without the cams and just the m3 exhaust and m50 inlet manifold with a remap would gain alot of power, or aint really worth it?

    i could go for 240 bhp for now!!

    it does confuse me that bmw's apart from the m3 are very very under powered for the size of the engine!! My old 320 was 150 and i thought stupid as is a 6 cyl,,,, naturaly you would think a 320 standard would be between 180 and 200 bhp,,, 325i would be between 210 and 240 bhp and the 328i would be between 240 and 260 bhp.... and the m3 all should of been at least 320bhp..
    you also thinks so???

    If you want a car that would keep up with the 328i that made 263bhp

    All you will need is the m50 manifold and induction kit mods and our aggressive track tuning
    Remap for road use as well

    If anyone has seen the video of this budget 328i for track use as in the pics
    we tuned being cased on the straight by a car that has all the mods fitted to it including USA m3 cams and alot more Which cost over 4000
