There are some crazy bastards who turbo the m10 2002's and with enough serious modification can make some crazy power. I've also heard of them putting down almost 300 with a NA motor (albiet running race gas...)

there is a link on BMW world somewhere to a guy who turbocharged his M10 powered E30. He custom fabbed almost all of it, including an intake manifold that looked like a hacked together set of headers, but he was getting i think something like 200 horsepower from it.

It's possible on M10 because of the relatively low compression. With some valvetrain enhancement, the M20 Eta would be ideal for forced induction.

A BMW is a beautiful car from almost any angle, but none so much as the one from behind the wheel.
