look from factory specs 189HP but that's BS. @ the wheels you are pushing around 169HP; I got a 325 with 285@the ckank but @ the Wheels I got 201HP don't ever pay attention to magazines or factory specs they say wherever they think will make them sell more cars, take it to a dyno and find out first before you start spending money in you bimmer.

Thats terrible logic. The car manufactures dont just make numbers, otherwise all cars would have 500 horse power.

very good

It's all about the dyno shart nothing else matter.


Have you seen the dyno chart of the E46 WORL CHALLENGE these are fully race engines with blocks bore out +4 with oversize pistons, shape head and block with compresion ratio close to 11.5:1 , engine managment, fully race fuel system, 3"1/2 straight pipes no restrictions, and how much they put out @ the wheels maybe 270HP no more thatn that.

Keep telling your self that you migth beleave it if you see an add telling you that X car has 200HP it may be @ the flywheel not @ the wheels

Exclamation

This is a fantastic link to E36 engine specs and more: http://www.kevinshen.org/bmw_e36_3_s..._us_specs.html

The 325i's came with 189 Bhp at the Crankshaft. Take away maybe 15% if you have the 5 speed manual, or 20 - 25% if you have the auto to see what you have at the back wheels...

280 BHp less 15% (5 speed manual) should be around 235 - 240 BHp at thr rear wheels. With an automatic, (280 less 20 - 25%) you should have around 210 - 225 BHp to the road. Only having 201 rear wheel Hp when you start with 280 BHp at the Crank is too little; unless for some reason, your transmission is about to fall off your car... If your drive train is eating up 79 BHp, then you better get a serious transmission oil cooler before your Trany MELTS!



If a 95 M3 with 240 BHp at the Crank goes 0 - 60 in 6.1 seconds (see link below), with 280 BHp at the crank you should be able to do 0 - 60 in maybe 5.4 - 5.7 seconds. How fast is your car in 0 - 60 times? If you really have 280 BHp at the crank, you will be faster than 6.1 seconds...



On a different note, check out the data for 0 - 60 and 1.4 mile times for 325i's and M3's (which had 240 BHp at the crank).

http://www.albeedigital.com/supercoupe/art.../0-60times.html

Scroll down to the BMW section for 325i and M3 info...
