    Yooo i have a baby 318iS.. but i need boost!! is it worth me turbo'ing it? or shall i just wait until i have a 2.8 as thats what i was planning on doing anyway..

    but my mates keep telling me to turbo the 1.8, then just get a new manifold when i get the 2.8 and run the same gear..

    ahhh i dont know what to doooo :(

    wait till you get the 328-cause you are going to need to upgrade your brakes and everything to handle the extra power-It'll be expensive too and your insurance will go up a fair bit as well

    thats what i was thinking as i was going too buy a whole doner car, and i have a set of E46 M3 brakes coming, already have a very expensive suspension/chassis set up, but dont see the point in boosting the 1.8, but my mates keep bugging me

    also, do you know where i can get a Vanos Eliminator for the 328 engine? as ive been told not too run a turbo set up with the vanos system.. and the Omex ECU im looking to get cant control the Vanos either

    Keep the vanos, the omex will handle it or get a ecu that can
    With great challenges comes great engineering.
