Dinan upgrade 85 635csiA

Considering the Dinan upgrade for the 85 635 US version. A bit sluggish as is. The price seems reasonable. Is it truly effective or am I simply trading torque for horsepower? Are there longer term consequences for engine life? Input is much appreciated.

The butt dyno will tell you it helped, but actual increase in hp per dollar is pretty expensive. How many miles on your 635?

147,000. just want to tweak it a bit where it counts, but keep it mostly original. i inherited it, and am now obsessed with it.

Quite a few years ago, I heard that Dinan no longer make parts for the e24's but I can be wrong. There's a few other companies that make them.
