    Hello!!

    New on here

    Got a few ideas about supercharging one etc so, should be good fun!!

    Used to have:

    2005 Seat Ibiza 1.9TDI FR which was 190bhp and 300lb/ft
    1992 Honda CRX Del Sol with a turbo kit fitted 260bhp and 230lb/ft
    Various other run-a-bouts

    Decided to go for something a little more.... well fun and RWD

    I will post some piccys of the motor in the members cars section

    Regards
    Mike

    Thanks mate!

    I work in the motortrade - more along the tuning side so I have my eye on a few things!

    Used to VAG and JAP so I am new to the BMW side though so, any info/advise is always taken

    Been thinking of the CCR Racing supercharger kit, got any reports on that?

    Welcome. 328's are awesome cars.

    The del sol sounds interesting. Are they a 1.6 with a flashy electric roof?

    Yeah mine was the B16A 160bhp stock - some came with the electric roof, others we manual. Mine was manual, I opted for this as they saved 80kg!!

    Here is a piccy:

    Yeah it was good fun, never really got to see what it would of been like at 350-400bhp once the engine was built but. After having an MR2 to run about in.... RWD cars are so much better than FWD... Just gave up with the Honda and went for the 328
