Lightbulb How can I get the most HP out of E46 325i

Can the racing dynamics' team really develop something for my car to generate 324hp? Other than getting a new engine how can I get the most out of the stock block. Already have some minor mods. Just installed 410 diffs in the rear made a HUGE difference. Thanks for any suggestions.

A lot of AutoXer's are going to higher gear ratios. Who makes your 4.10 and what's the part number?

Which filter do you have on the intake? I'm curious as to which ones work the best.

I thought you already have the 4.10 diffs installed?

Have you read about the Transmission software from Dinan? I heard it makes a huge difference.

Here's a link: http://www.dinanbmw.com/Products/3se...5i/325i.html#4

Yeah, the UUC Autowerks exhaust is great, from what I hear! I'm thinking about getting one too.

It's the best I have heard, in first gear it pops when you let off the gas. In the back seat the rides willn't like it though. Plainning on get the new Active Autowerks supercharger when it is realeased.

You're thinking about the UUC-Active Autowerks joint venture exhaust right? I heard that's made by SuperSprint but the design was snaked from Tubi in Italy, no?

Anyone has the specs on this exhaust system?

Active Autowerks and UUC are two different companies. All I know is that the UUC exhaust system has never gotten a bad rap from any that has heard my car.

Maybe the one from Downing/Atlanta like the one they make for the S54 is a better choice.

That's the engine code for the '01 and '02 M roadsters. The pre '01s are 454.

the oil doesn't do anything to the engine. Are you sure.

Eugie may have exagerated on the hp - I doubt if that was the reading at the rear wheels, but there have been some cases of getting more power by reducing engine friction with some exotic lubricant.
