    Hi all

    as some may know, ive recently fitted a 2.8 m52tu to my e46 323.

    its running pritty sweet as it is but because im running the 323 ecu still id like to have it remapped so i can get the most out of the new engine..

    whats the best way to go about this?

    will a live map on the rollers be best?

    im running a few modifications too and also want the rev limiter taking of or increasing to more 7-8k..

    is this possible

    heres a vid of how it runs now, not the best but this was one of the first drives after fitting the engine!

    I would look into taking it to a rolling road first, and seeing if it is giving you full power.

    go do a decent tuners with mapping services and rollers and spend a day there, they will be able to tweak your settings, limiter settings etc.

    you'll be pushing 200BHP at the end of day I should have thought, but BHP is just a figure the most important thing is how it feels when driving it!

    i would have thought that some of the forum vendors will have complete 328 settings with remap wrote in to them!, should just be a case of uploading the program maybe.

    oh yeh of course but i still would like to know that the engine is running as it should rather than it be struggling and causing damage

    ill have to have a ring round and see what the mappers say

    Awesome GTI should be somewhere close, with a BMW infiltrator from here

    The main thing to do is see if it is running OK. I have seen previous cars using the wrong ECU, and although you can get hold of fueling and timing maps etc, they are usually programmed / coded to run in 323 or 328 spec.
    The general map area rarely covers coding data, that will often be stored elsewhere, along with chassis numbers and fault codes.
