allow me to reintroduce myself

Last time I was on this site was probably july of 2012, back when I had my e46 323i. I have since saved up and bought a 07 e92 335i M-sport pckg. So there are a few things I'd like to ask about this new (to me) car. I'm sure you've seen these questions before, and I apologize in advance for not searching for a dozen different threads. So here I go.

Im looking for more low end power from the N54 stock setup. As Im sure everyone in this forum know from first or second hand experiance there isn't a lot of power until the turbos kick in. Im not looking to do a lot of major work to my engine, mostly bolt ons will make me happy.. does the aFe cold air intake that replaces the top of the stock MAF better than an unsealed regular aFe intake? Corsa Exhuast is what Im looking to get to improve sound. Any Corsa Owners that can give me a first hand review of their RSC exhaust? I read on here throttle bodies are just hype. So what else could I do for the extra gain in power. Im not looking to piggyback at all. I'm a fan of marjority stock setups. Last Im IN LOVE with the voristeiner GTRS3 wide body kit... is there anyway to get it on my 335i!? or is the best Ill ever get is the one by prior designs?

a wide body kit isn't going to give you more low end

Obviously, how big of an ass are you that you would even take the time to point out something like that?

I thought one of the strengths of the N54 is low-end torque. Doesn't torque peak before 2,000 RPM?

Perhaps you want more none-the-less, but I figure coming from a E46 323i, the 335i ought to feel like a punch in the gut if you floor it. I don't have a 335i, but from reading the forum, seems like a JB3 is the cleanest, cheapest way to get more power out of the N54.

It is a massive difference between my 323 and my 335 but I'm always craving just a little more from it, ya know? And yes it is peak but I again I'm just looking for that little something else.

Look for JB4, Cobb, BMW PPK... Some sort of tuning will be largest gains, and is less money than the intake and exhaust possibly.

If you want more low end torque than what your 335i is giving you then I would surmise you bought the wrong 335. You should have got the D and not the I,

Automatically Diesel
Unlike other 3-series BMWs, the 335d's only gearbox is a six-speed automatic. Attention letter writers: We're aware that our test car's options don't match those of the photo car.

But if you value torqueand who among us does not?the 335d generates enourgh to affect the rotation of the earth: 425 pound-feet at 1750 rpm. Thats 125 pound-feet more than the 335is gasoline turbo six. More perspective: The Dodge Rams 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 churns up just 407 pound-feet. The Ram, youll recall, is a truck. Torque and trucks go together like pizza and beer.

As taken from car and driver...

So yeah
it is low end..

Forget that stuff....score yer bad self a JB4.

JB4, in addition to offering several canned maps, comes with a custom map in which you can frolic among any number of engine settings.

The answer to your quest lies within.

Only you can find your true self within the possibilities which are the BMW ECU.

Hey good luck - post results here & the coding forum?

Huh? Whaaaa? Not the foggiest what funny ol' Waterboy's spoutin' now?
