    But wont the fact its running to lean mean its getting plenty air and not enough fuel?
    Which could be caused by
    I would also check all air pipes for splits/leaks.

    I would advise a diagnostic scan to see if there are any fault codes recorded on the ECU.
    A scan will flag an injector fault Even my Peake Research tool flags this, I know because I have seen it

    Once you have checked for split/leaking or even disconnected pipes have a diagnostic scan performed on the vehicle.


    Just a heads up When I put the M3 engine from my Coupe into my Touring I accidently left off an earth strap which caused a number of fault codes to be thrown up. Onceit was reconnected and the old codes erased it was fine.

    Don't go replacing this that and the other without first checking the simple and common causes

    Thanks for the heads up mate. Will have to wait till end of next week when I got some free time now as I got 2 uni exams to get ready for next week

    But will definatly get a diagnostic scan done. Just a bit gutted my mate cant do it in his garage as they dont have OBD1 tools.

    Just not liking how my car is running that lean at the moment. Gona take it easy for the time being.

    Will keep posted with my progress. But definatly not happy with the fact that an e36 323 can keep up with me

    If they are close in spec as to your original 160cc size then go for it.
    But check their flow based on their part number before hand.

    GStuning, Yea, I checked the part numbersand done a bit of cross referencing and the 323 has same injectors as my 325

    And RJB328i, yea I am thinking about it, I thought about the fact that Im running that Big Bore Throttle Body aswell, that would contribute to the lean mixture so the 328 injectors are on my list, just trying to remember what scrappy I seen a 328

    Just another question, how much am I looking at for a new Lambda sensor? I think that could be dodgy but really need to plug it into a Diagnostic machine and fined out.

    I use to have a 323i and the engine is the same as the 325i but the difference is the manifold and the exaust. It does have 170 bhp. And i had it up to 145 mph in the rain. It goes like a train at least my one did.
    My BMW history= E36 318IS, 323I,Mini Cooper, E46 320 D SE and now E39 530D. awesome

    yea, the 323 is simmilar to the 325 engine but the main difference is, the 323 is the ali block and is downtuned.
    Im not happy that im not even making standard power but shall find some 328 injectors and try again.
    Will keep you all posted with my progress.
