The E36 Diesel makes 140hp stock. It will require a major investment in time and money to get it making 250hp.

Most people upgrade the turbo, but with that requires upgrading other components as well.

Wow, 402,000 km is pretty impressive. Me personally, if it were my car I wouldnt redo the engine or replace it until it needs to be replaced. If it aint broke, dont fix it.

Depends on your budget. You have to make the turbo you choose work with the rest of the car.

How much are you willing to spend on a car with 400,000 km?
