    hi
    ive recently bought a e46 m-sport coupe 320d on a 05 plate (53000miles)
    has anyone installed a tunning chip in a simlar car or the same.
    ive been thinking about an easy power upgrade for the car and if this works it will be perfect as its easily removable.
    Am i correct in thinking i can install this myself and it plugs directly to the ECU< correct me if im wrong.
    do these things work?
    i remember a while back people listing transistors on ebay for £5 for petrol engines to fool the the air intake sensor, a friend bought one but just got a engine warning light.

    Could anyone reccomend a tuning box or somewhere that sells them near leeds?
    thanks.
    one more question, ive heared that the 320d suffers from turbo failure requiring a new engine, does this affect the 2005 facelift models as i dont want to put more stress on the turbo with a tuning box.

    Thanks for any help offered

    Speak to SlowTech, he had his car chipped 2 weeks ago for under £300 or speak to MotechMike as he does it.

    ive had a look on google for re-mapping tuning chips etc, as i know little about what needs doing. Ive found a site called 'Evolution Chips', they look pretty reputable, they say the 320d gets a 30BHP power increase (increases to 180+BHP) + 63NM of tourque with more MPG and all for £350 fitting. Can anyone reccommend a centre to get this done, ones listed on the site near me are:
    (in order of proximity)
    ART motor engineers (in Wakefield)
    Auto Rads (in sheffield)
    SR Performance (in Worksop?) <<almost a bit too far away

    Ive also found a company near birmingham doing engine remaps called e-maps,it doesnt say which type of chip they install, anyone used these?
    Has anyone declared the re-map to insurace company? if so how much extra was this?

    Can anyone reccommend any of these garages and the evo chip?
    Ill post the gains i get of any engine mods in a month or so when i get my next wage.
    Thanks

    hi beatts

    I can wholeheartedly recomend e-maps from Walsall, he remapped my 320d to 185bhp and about 390Nm

    You can see HERE what he does to 320d's.

    The new map doesn't slam you in your seat but it has greatly improved driveability with fantastic torque in 3rd gear
    coupled with good acceleration in gears 5 and 6, the throttle seems slightly more responsive also, all good

    sparkym1b has just had the same map as me and here is his POST.

    IMO well worth the money

    Sorry Paul I couldn't say 100%

    Probably best to PM e-maps direct and ask him?
