I have been told by a tuning company over here in the UK that I cannot change the characteristics of my engine through remapping or chipping.
As an ex-328i driver and now a 323i driver I am getting frustrated with the complete lack of power below 3k revs. I assume this is the characteristics of the VANOS engine but I can't believe this cannot be smoothed out with the Shark Injector let alone a custom job.
Your thoughts please! What mods have you used to overcome similiar problems?
|Isn't that just how the engine should be? Peak torque and hp are at higher RPM's are with most BMW's. It's not like a single cam V8 truck where all the torque and power comes in at low end. You want the power at higher revs. If you drive an auto, I could see how that could get annoying. Just use the right gears and find that "happy" place on the rev limiter where your car seems to pull the best.|

Can this be found through a chip/remap or any other means... SC out of the question otherwise I would just buy an M3 Evo!!!

Do mods such as under drive pulleys help to get more low-end torque? Or do they just make your car rev up faster?
