    Might also get a run on a different rolling road to see if CCE's was putting out high/low figures.
    what was the whp on that run?
    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.

    The 325 and 328 heads are the same, so no point in swapping them over. The Alpina cams will drop straight into a 328 lump.
    The alpina head would be a modified one,you wont get 225bhp from cams alone. I'd drop a B28 single vanos in there with the alpina head and cams,you might not get much more hp but you'd gain torque.
    I'd also invest in a M3 diff with extra plates and maybe a box too.
    Better ratios and a better responce as the M3 diff is 3.15 vs 2.79 i think.

    all help needed, Many thanks Taylor
