Yup. Hes got a vortech V3 VF-engineering stage 1 kit. Correct me if I'm wrong.

And here's a pic for playero. I had the same setup as you did but made my own stage 2.5 kit.

New here...Just picked up this 99 323i. No big cosmetic plans, just get it as mechanically sound as possible since it will be my daily commuter, maybe some new headlights eventually. Great forum, lots of good info, thanks.

Mein Auto: 2002 Chevy Malibu
Just purchased my first BMW - 2002 325i

Have some work to do on this one... repair stitching on rear seats, cracked passenger side mirror frame, missing tow hook cover. That's enough complaining for now.
