I recenltly purchased my good friends 1986 325e. A beautiful car, however I know very little about it. My other car is a turbo/awd eclipse. I am not looking to put a forced induction system on this car, but I would like to be able to tune a higher a/f ratio. I have an apexi safc, a laptop, a/f regulator,it even looks as though the intake has been modified with a ss pipe going to a k&n. Now this engine is designed for fuel economy, which i like, however i wouldnt mind expanding my top end power. Sounds like there are all sorts of chips out there, what about software? With my eclipse i could plug my palm pilot in to the serial port and run datalogging software, as well as a few differant software verisons on my laptop. Is there much in the way of speacialized software like this for beemers?
What is the route that most people go to free upsome power on these things? Is there any type of governor system on these cars I should be removing?
Any advice is greatly appreciated, I know you like people to search for their answers first, which I have and will continue to do, but I appreciate any feedback.
