    There's a thread already discussing PBV IIRC.

    Personally I think your best option would be to get a good remap

    There are also numerous threads discussing the 325 addition onto a 328. I think this question needs to be made into a sticky thread as it seems a regular question being asked.

    Lots of people mod their 328's and there is an accepted standard way to get 220-230 bhp. A good place to start for 328 mods is to check out Hamish's posts on here, he has done shed loads to his and is unbiased as to what mods produces easy gains etc.

    The M50 325 inlet manifold is the first step, either buy a kit (£300) or mod one to fit yourself (be prepared to run about a bit to pick up hoses etc but it would cost less than £100). US M3 cams would complement this quite nicely (£300 parts only). Follow this with a remap (around £200) and finish it off with the M3 LSD (sideways action and a better gear ratio).

    The general consensus on the e36coupe site is start with a m50 manifold and conversion kit coupled with a big bore throttle body (about £300-£400 iirc), a decent induction kit and a remap. That should see around 220ish bhp which is healthy increase. US m3 cams and undrive pulleys are a good next step and a 325i or m3 lsd unit has better ratios for acceleration. If you're car has ASC+T you might as well pick up a regular 325i open diff (about £50 as opposed to £250 for lsd) to improve acceleration if you're not looking to go sideways.
