Picked up for my wife today. :) 517235

E87 118d, 2liter turbo diesel engine chipped to 110kW and 340Nm.
Quite smooth to drive on highway, but not so sharp in turns like my e46.

They are all low mileage! Anything below 200,000 kms is considered low. Anyway those numbers exactly show, that automatic is not so fun to drive. :) Otherwise he would have driven more.

Question Increasing fuel flow?

Can stock fuel system deliver bit more, if i just switch fuel pressure regulator?
From 3bar into 3,5bar for example?

Or do i need stronger fuel pump to produce any more pressure?
