    Do you mean an M42?

    If so - search on youtube - very impressive results, but ultimately not worth the cost.

    E30 - done
    E36 - done

    The N42 engine doesn't like high revs so is pretty pointless at tuning.

    All because of the Valvetronic.

    N42 is a problem of it's own, especially with rattling issues.
