    You will be limited on super charging a m43 1.8l 8 valve, most of the kits are for the m42 and m44 engines (1.8l 16v and 1.9l 16v)

    Yep, engine conversion is the way forward mate.

    325i or 328i engine are the best one £ for hp

    You could then supercharge that if your still keen, but the performance will be MUCH better so you may not want to
