Also you should at 100k miles change all the fluids, gearbox, diff, transfer box. Use only BMW fluids in the transfer box. The tyres all must be a similar rolling radius.

This is the only part that makes power on a N52. Software alone doesn't do much, exhaust does nothing but make the car louder.

Up to you to decide if the cost is worth it on a 10 year old SUV.

^As far as I know the X3 already has the high output version of the N52 so the above manifold kit would do absolutely nothing.

That's because most people don't bother with "mods" on an E83.

It will install on any N52, and a call to Turner will confirm that they can flash your ECU for the new manifold.

That's only in the "is," to my knowledge.

Or maybe not? They all had the H.O. N52? If so, that's pretty sweet!

Not much as far as performance upgrades unless you have a ton of money.

Every N52 X3 has the 260 hp unit from the 330. In the US that is.

Unlike the E46 and pre-LCI E83, where 328i and 330i where differentiated by different engines, the E90 328i simply had a detuned version of the N52. This doesn't apply to E83.

Swap in an N54/N55. Or at least the turbos.
