I've been looking all around, and can't seem to find a good place to buy a chip for my slow car :P. Just trying to squeeze a couple extra HP out of it. Any suggestions? I tried Turner, but they don't have a chip for an '85 318i. Thanks for the help.

I was looking one for my car as well, have the exact same car. 85 318i. And I decided that if I wanted different tuning, I would probally have to pay the speed shop here in town to do some dyno pulls and then have them remap the fuel custom-style.

That may be the route i'll go. But that would probably be quite a bit more than buying a pre made chip, i'd guess.

Ah, I just remembered. One of my dad's friends used to do auto tuning. He owns a $3000 chip programmer.... have to talk to him, possibly.

Hey, Halon. What kind of performance mods (if any) have you done to your car?

Lets see. weight stage level 1 reductions... I don't have a tire on my spare anymore (Blowout.), took out some insulation when reinstaling my seats (maybe 3 grams. :P). And... haha, its stock as hell. I'm in the process of collecting the parts I need for an m20 swap though. At this point I only need an MAF and a transmission. Good times.

How much is that engine swap costing you? I've been thinking of buying one of those spiffy Downing Atlanta Superchargers.

well so far the rolling chassis for the engine, cross-member, rear brake (conversion from drums.) and ECU+Throttle Body have cost me about 600 dollars. I've gotta get an MAF still, as well as a 5 speed transmission for the m20, and then I'm settled in. Swap it out, sell my m10, install rear brakes and rear axles... I'm good to go. Hoping to replace all the bushings and alot of the subframe while I'm at it. go poly-urethane. Then when thats done the next stage will be shocks and springs. Then I don't know what'll be up. So I've got about another 500 dollars to go for sure. maybe even more. Waiting until after winter.

Wow, that's not really all that much money. I might go that way instead. Thanks, Halon.

Tru. I'm hoping to rebuild the engine as well before I install it. I mean the guy I bought it from said it was rebuilt, but I don't know how much I can trust that. So might as well do it myself and save myself the trouble of finding out he didn't when I finally -need- the car working. I don't think I could afford to have the tranny rebuilt, and I definatly don't want to screw that up. :-x Anyhow, hope that was helpful. I'm getting my shiz out of a 1988 something iA (four door.) and I think I am going to steal its valence and bumpers maybe even. It doesn't have diving boards. But then I'll have to get it repainted... haha, oh well! Live and spend.
