Same as in the current 2004 330Ci with the sport package: 225 HP and 214 lb-ft of torque. That was the first year of the 3.0 liter engine (up from the 2.8).

Thanks for the response TLudwig

Does anyone know how much would HP increase if you added the ECIS CAI, Borla Cat-back exhaust and the Shark Injector? Keeping in mind this is for an auto/steptronic transmission on a 2001 330ci?

Probably about 10 hp. Shark + intake adds about 8 hp. IIRC, the exhaust doesn't add much since the 330 uses straight pipes already. Maybe it adds 2-5 hp (just guessing). The 330 is pretty tweaked already from the factory. You're not going to get appreciable performance from most common bolt-on mods.

Underdrive pulleys and swapping your differential are probably the biggest bang for the buck (ask Dr. Phil about his ZHP mods with differential and pulleys).

Thinking about doing European Delivery? Read about my ED experience. Best trip, ever.
