    Afternoon all,

    my m3 dreams have been placed on hold for now, but the misses has given me free reign to play with the 323..

    so apart from the:

    M50 Manifold
    328i Sport Exhaust

    what else can i do to improve the cars grunt...

    i already have priced up brakes and the suspension has already been done

    i would like to crack 200 and be on the way to 250ish ideally, granted i may get no where near 250 but its a target haha

    cars had a damn good service and all running sweet

    Cheers

    Mark

    I would imagine that in order to see those types of figures from a 323i you'd be looking at spending some cash.

    Decent Exhaust, Cold Air feed, M50 intake with larger throttle body, Cams and a re-map for kick off....

    not point in uping to a 328 as next car WILL be an E36 M3, so would like to keep the 323 for now and tinker with that ...

    i cant imagine it would be too hard to reach 200 in one, maybe 250 is a little high but hey im ambicious haha

    I thought the 323 maniflds were already a good setup ??

    exhaust in the shape of the 328 sport
    guessing by induction we are talk an DAVEF or similier ??
    Chip ??? are the ECU's chip-able ??

    Speak to the end on here as he will advise you more about the chip or remap and sports manifolds are available.
    K/ n induction kit with heatshield from gunner1
    Scorpion catback exhaust would free some horses up
