Question

I have one more question, I have a 316i, E36, year 92, 105hp (origin). I have a twister air filter and I’ve gain a little bit of better performance, however nothing special. I thought I could change something on my ECU, but this requires plenty costs and few gains. Without this kind of changes how can I gain more hp? Muffler? Is there any way I can get to 140/150hp? Another question, can I assemble the computer that exists on the center console on 320i’s on my 316i? Thanks a lot! ghead

eh, mufflers don't really do anything for performance, and redoing your entire exhaust doesn't help too much with everything else stock. I'm new to BMWs but from what I understand there is a lot of after market stuff out there for the engine, cams, lifters, headers ect. For most cars changing the headers can add a lot (30ish hp) to a stock engine. Then you just get more out of it as you continue to upgrade the engine. However, if your doing the header, you might as well do cams and pistons and things like that, unless you like taking apart you engine for fun. I've also been told that the engine in the 318i has more potential than the engine in the E36 (I believe) M3. So I know this doens't help much, but hopefully it will give you ideas for what to look for.

with the 1.6 your really not looking to gain much power from anything. To get upto 140-150 would be hard and expensive. 125 is much more reasonable HP goal. A chip, exhaust, CAI, headers, and pulleys would help and not break the bank too much.

you can get over 200bhp out of the 318is.

get a 318is, and the supercharger kit from DA:
