    ok guys realy considering a turbo conversion.
    seeing more of these crop up out of the woodwork it seems a good idea. alot of planning will be done befor i start anything. basicly i have the need well not need more of a craving for a turbo car. after driving a few ahem scoobys and rs turbos ect i realy fancie the turbo power.

    now i have a 323i auto for now but have all the bits for the manual conversion ready in another car just need to get them out and hand over the cash. also in the donor there is a running 328i vanos engine but has 200k on the clock

    ive read about non vanos engines and these seem to be the norm for turbo bmw's. so the choices i have are the 323i engine 120kis) with turbo and the 328 with turbo.
    bith engines are vanos engines. now ive read a few places that the vanos is a problem when you reach about 400bhp the truth in this im unsure.

    ive read a few thereads on the turbo section and you guys know your stuff so i am asking for alittle advise if you dont mind giving patients lol

    oh and im not after major high power

    Vanos is not a problem when you reach 400hp. Thats a fact.

    thanks for clearing that up bud
    also after looking about on info everyone seems to be looking for high gains that boast biiig horsepower or claim to produce big gains. im only after around 300-350 max so do you reccomend any turbo what will give me around them figures. dont want a great huge whopping turbo on there thats going to cause me problems

    cheers

    Something with a inducer of about 50mm should do nicely.

    Look around for something in that range.

    If you're not looking for big numbers (e.g. above 400-450bhp), I think the stock internals should do the trick with a MLS headgasket and ARP's.

    If you want big power, then you'll probably have to replace pistons, rods, ARP's for head and rods, and in both cases, the most important bit IMO - a very good software for engine management.
    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    And I think a massive part in it is bigger injectors in my opinion one of the most important! Get the biggest you can!
