    Hi mate what bhp are you planning on running? Just it would be easier and a lot more reliable and a lot more powerful to get a 325 or 328 and turbo it! Tuning a 216 and 318 8v is a bit pointless if you ask me mate only good none 6 cylinder to tune is the 318is bud

    Your manifold won´t work. You need a manifold made
    With great challenges comes great engineering.

    I'm also planning a turbo project for my M43 engined E46. Are you modifying the engine internals? I doubt the 318tds manifold will work even if you can get it to fit it'll probably crack running with petrol engine temps (burn a lot hotter then the derv).

    Are you modifying the clutch, gearbox etc to take the extra power? I'm going all out on mine and hoping for 250BHP+ so going to need a beefed up transmission!

    the 1.6 is like 97bhp if I remember, trying to get another 100bhp will b pushing it and using it for drag racing it will aways be pushed to its limits, you may have problems with reliabilitie

    Not sure reliability is a huge concern if you're only driving quarter mile at a time
