no, NA is naturally aspirated and what do you plan to do to get that power?

NA = Naturally Aspirated (No Super or Turbocharger)
FI = Forced Induction (Super or Turbocharger)

How do you plan on getting 250hp out of a 2.5 liter 6 cylinder block?

seems like it would be possible if you stroked it, ported and polised the sh*t out of intake/exhaust ports on the head, and switched to larger valves and a 3 degree valve job. Bumbed the compression up to 12.9ish, and got some custom cams made.

Expensive work though, not common to find shops who will do that to a BMW. If it was a V8, there wouldn't be a problem getting that all done.

I be it could be done. but it will get tricky once you start getting near the goal.

gonna take a lotta tuning. but we are already pushin nearly 200 and a chip alone and take up above that.

Cams, intake, headers and such meantioned by wuelly said.

and are we talkin bhp or hp at the wheels?

it would certainly be a very achievable goal. Honestly, I think once you finished all of the engine work I listed above, you would be a little over 300hp. But, you probably would have spent $8K. For that price, go low boost FI.

[QUOTE]are we talkin bhp or hp at the wheels?

stock 328's come with 193 at the flywheel...who knows how much it is at the wheels. About 15% less.

100bhp/litre is a pretty good number!

You might be able to get close to 250bhp. The thing is that the first 30 - 40bhp is easy..... the more you want then the more difficult it gets.

Thought about doing a transplant?

The reliability will be questionable. To avoid problems with the engine you can change the gasket and leads for thicker, stronger ones which will help but we're talking a lot of cash for small reward here.

Drop the cash on a V8 engine from a 540i! That would be sweet.

<span style='color:blue'>&quot;So my BM makes me a flash bastard? Then I guess you're just keeping it real from the seat of your nova?&quot;</span>

<span style='color:gray'>&quot;...and the home of the brave..... is bravey 130bhp from a 7 litre engine? 100bhp/litre or don't bother building it!&quot;</span>

<span style='color:red'>&quot;Aaahh the UK; where every road is jammed, under construction, poorly maintained and unfairly policed, at least we don't get over-taxed for it........ HA HA HA!&quot;</span>
