    Hi,
    Can anyone give me some advice on what induction kit and exhaust are the best for my t reg (99) 1.9 16v e36 compact. Heard all sorts of things going from the stupid, as in fripping of the filter box and gluing tights on to the maf sensor , to the extreme of paying someone to design and build a kit for me .
    Any help and advice welcome.

    HI Nevins

    its a bit of a minefield to be honest
    With lots of choices and opinions on the options.

    I would say to get a K and N panel filter to go in your original airbox...DONT do a silly cone filter... the car might sound different but when I did it on an M3 and 325 before that, the car was noticeably slower


    Exhaust system...

    well, supersprint are pretty good.

    What is your budget?

    and new or 2nd hand for the exhaust?

    True. But they are also the most expensive ones

    Sounds a good idea Nevins

    But I would say go for the 3 litre non Evo engine.....much more stout.
    no dual vanos to fail.
    and very little performance difference

    BMW's don't tend to respond particularly well. They produce a nice noise but I tried several when I had my 318 engine but none of them produced a noticeable difference. The only mod I can say improved torque was having the cat removed but my car was a 92 so it wasn't an mot requirement on mine.

    Do the conversion!!! You won't regret it :p

    The Cat isn't a MOT requirement, The problem comes with passing the emissions, some cars I've seen get away with it,some don't

    That is true. If I remember rightly the 92' 318is requirement had a large tolerance level and I am I right in thinking these levels have or are being reduced.

    The noise level went up alot also. Definately not everyone's cup of tea

    Noise wise the criteria is.....
    A silencer in such condition,or of such a type, that the noise emitted from the vehicle is clearly unreasonably above the level expected from a similar vehicle with a silencer in average condition.

    The gas readings are as follows
    First used before 01/08/1975 = visual only
    First used between 01/08/1975 and 31/07/1986 = CO<=4.5%, HC<=1200ppm.
    First used between 01/08/1986 AND 31/07/1992 = CO<=3.5%, HC<=1200ppm.

    Catalyst BET test,vehicle first used on or after 01/08/1992
    Fast Idle (2500-3000rpm) CO<=0.3%, HC<=200ppm, Lambda between 0.97-1.03.
    Idle Test (450-1500rpm) CO<=0.5
