    you will find it quite hard to do that if you are on a low budget, the best way (this is my opinion) is to get a de-cat exhaust system and a remap you cant go wrong with that

    you might get an extra 10-11bhp from remap and exhaust. it all really depends on how much you want to spend like i say to a lot of my mates that the only linit is your wallet really , so if you want to do that the getting the head gasflowed will most probs gain you bout 5bhp at the most and to be honest there might not even be a gain

    with the amount of money you would spend getting the head flowed , remap , exhaust and getting the throttle body enlarged you mite as well put that aside for a 328i engine thats the best bang for your buck
