94 325is Horsepower?

My 94 325is has stock 189 HP. With a conforti chip and intake installed how much horsepower does the E36 now have? I heard the chip adds 20hp, but I am guessing its around 11. Does anyone know if its in the 200's? 215's?

you might make around 205 crank I think. I heard the chips make a big difference on our OBD1 cars.

I would agree. Assuming your car is running correctly already.

Have it dyno'd, just to see where you are at the wheels. It is a cool experience.

200-206 crank power seems about right.

187 rwhp?? on just an intake and chip? Not calling you a liar, but on bf.c 325's with light-weight flywheels, pullies, track pipes, custom software, M3 cams..basically every bolt on possible run dyno's at 190rwhp.

He also has exhaust. His is a 92 non-vanos...if that makes a difference.

His non-vanos motor has hotter cams so with the intake mod Id imagine he would get more power. But 187 at the wheels with simple bolt ons. Could be posisble if its one of those factory freak motors.

yeah, some cars react to mods much better than others , dont look at it as engine types, sometimes engines have variables that can account for the difference in dyno numbers, (for instance youll see for most websites they post highs and lows on gains because they average it out from the lowest and highest for each car.

chips realistically only gain around 11ish to the crank not 20 like they say, and intake will gain you id guess around 4-5 to the crank .. only a guess however.

Makes sense now..if you read the small blue lettering above the graphs it says "fly wheel power.." this is not 187 to the wheels. It's 187 at the crank..

It is not 187 to the wheels. Your not going to get 187 to the wheels unless you are modded out. The dyno sheet even says flywheel power.
