    The electric auxiliary fan has a cracked hub and vibrates badly on high speed. I am searching for a replacement unit but without success so far. It is 16 inch diameter, 2 speed with a 3 pin connector and the local BMW dealer wants £440 for a new one! Needless to say I'm not paying that sort of...

    Good afternoon all, could anyone tell me what the standard boost pressure should be on my E36 325td please? It is currently running at 13psi, is this correct? Also what psi would be safe to up it to using a bleed valve with no other mods? Many thanks in advance, Dan.

  11. BMW ECU Tuning and Standalone Tuning
    I have a 1996 325td which is in immaculate condition but sadly a bit lacking in power. What performance mods would help this model and how much more bhp could I expect ? The engine has done 90,000 miles and has full service history.

    Hi there- As well as the 525d that you'll find in my details, I've also got a Range Rover Classic with an M51 engine from a 325td. I trapped and crushed the wires from the injector under the manifold, so shortened and rejoined the wires, but neglected to mark them, so they may not be connected...
