    That is true BUT iv been asking around and apparently its do able. I thought the same thing but they offer kits out in america with garentees, weather its worth the paper its written on is another thing, just looking out at the moment at what i can get for the money, i do prefer N/A tunning as its not stressing the lump at all but bmw have done so well getting all that power out of these things, prices are high for not alot of bhp. Nos is another thing but not too keen on this.... Have to see what i can find out tonight and see whats the best option.

    1.. could you afford to buy a new engine if and when it blows up
    2.. Do you really think you could diy a turbo install on your m3, if you do your off your rocker
    3...insurance 24 year old in a turbo charged m3, that will down like a sack of sh=t
    4...why are you even thinking off doing this when you have only had the car for 2 months
    5...if you are going to do this, have it done in a garage ie ALTUNNING after all at lease i may run for 6 months with problems
    6..resell valve, worth sweet fu-k all

    well that my opinon mate, i think you bloody mad, but its your car and you can what ever you like with it

    DUM ARSE

    Least i can spell dumb you stupid pikey

    Whats has been the history with Nitrous with the E46 M3 engine.

    If its set up with a progressive switch and correctly installed.........how do these engines fare? With 75bhp jets........you'll have 418bhp. That wont be slow.

    Agree with Ralphs points to be honest.
