I have been reading about the engine in my 1999 316i (I think its an M43TU) and i have read that it is a de-tuned version of the 318i.

What has been done to de-tune it, and how easily can i get the power of a 318i into my 316i?

Cheers for the response mate. I was hoping that it wpuld go something like, "Just get a 318i ECU off ebay" ;)

I don't want to spend a lot, but wondered if there was an easy 10% or so to add!

Having just read another post regarding the M43TU engine, i'm guessing the extra 10% isnt really available easily.

Do anyone know what the differences are between the 316i 1.9 and the 318i 1.9 are then?
