    Hi all, hope you can help me?

    Iv put an e36 3.2 m3 evo engine into my 316i estate but im wanting more power already. Im hoping to go turbo next year but would like to get it re-map so i can have 350bhp at the rear wheels until the turbo comes.

    Spoke to a few people in the tuning ring but they all suggest changing my ecu to get the best results? Im hoping you guys (and girls) can send a few suggestions my way as to which system would be best to use and will i be able to use the same ecu when the turbo comes along?

    Hope you can help, thanx

    Jay

    an evo engine has 321bhp at the fly! so the rear wheels will be getting around 250? to get 350 at wheels you will be looking at around 500bhp. with out the turbo you have no chance!

    unless you meen 350bhp at the flywheel? in which case a remap will get you only a few bhp! and seen as the evo's are renowned for not ever actually making 321bhp, you will prob only get a more responsive or better power delivery than any real bhp.

    You´ll need something that will control the vanos.

    This means

    Motec M800
    Vipec V44/V88
    DTA S100
    Syvec S6

    and some others
    If you don´t need vanos then any standalone your tuner if familiar with would be the best option.

    erm that is ridiculous, so what you're saying is my car which made 356bhp on a rolling road (measures wheel power) will make over 500bhp if put on a bench dyno (measures flywheel power) to calculate flywheel power? so i can tell everyone i got a 500bhp jap car

    This is correct

    Anyway, the man that will tell us for sure is Ian S

    My Mpowered Touring certainly won't be 286bhp at the rear wheels, that too is at the fly wheel

    321hp at the fly is correct(according to BMW) but there is no way you are going to lose 71hp between the fly and at the wheels......

    i think its a 18% loss through transmission so you work it out
