    Hey im in the process of starting to get together my own supercharger kit for my 328 1999 e46. just wondering if i can get away with standard ECU or require a piggy back module or remap? it will only be low boost. thanks

    Due to high compression and small injectors, you must get new injectors and a new tune for the fuel and timing. There is no diy tuning of the ecu for obd2 bmw's. Piggybacks have not been easily successful on bmw's. Your best bet is to go with a used kit. If you are determined to use a piggyback, then do a search in the fi section of *****************.

    Yeah.
    Piggybacks have not been very sucessful but CAN be made to work with the right knowledge.
    A remap IS an option and I know a tuner in the UK who can map your OBD 2 E46 all day every day for various turbos

    I have had really good experiences with piggy backs, I think it depends on what boost you are going to run,

    Many thanks

    740bhp amazing, Respect to the driver & producer of a technical work of art.
    wow, and how much torque did the Dyno say ?

    i think we all wanna see pictures. !

    do you take it to any shows/meets trackdays?
    or are you an autobahn cruizer.
    and how does it fair through city centres ie london B'ham etc?
    & while your at it, what are your new service intervals.
