    I have been looking at the CCR Racing supercharger kits for mine and I can get them for about £3200 for the bolt on kit that offers 280bhp.

    Are you just looking for more power or do you want to get a little more done on the handling and brakes!!

    If you want to aim for 350bhp down the line I would sort out the brakes and suspension first.

    By the way you could always get a bigger charger from the CCR Racing kit with a few custom pipes for more power but you will have to lower the compression ratio - cheapest way would be a spacer gasket. But sorry to say I think you will be spending more than 3K! :(

    Have you considered getting an M3 lump and running gear and then having it remapped?

    How much does an M3 engine and running gear usually cost?

    I was lucky to get most of what I needed for 1800 going back a couple of years or so

    I think the engines alone may be going for around 1500. Not checked recently due to lack of funds

    yeah i am upgrading my suspension very soon. and breaks will definately be changed. i dunno what to do really. i would love to find a nice salvage m3 that would probably do me.

    but i need to get the rite person to do it, my man can change to the 2.8 no problem but the m3 maybe too much for him!!

    If he can change the 2.8 then he can change the M3
