I will be getting a '93-'95 325is pretty soon, and plan to make the following modifications:

UUC Twin Silencer Exhaust
Jet-Hot Headers
Conforti CAI
M3 Camshafts
Conforti Chip

Other non-power related mods are:

Suspension
Sport Shifter
Wheels
and possibly HID

Can anyone tell me how much power I should be looking at with these mods? Also, please give me suggestions as to what additional mods would be good, and opinions on brands.

Thanks!

as for numbers not sure, but with those mods it will be a very very nice incread. as for your question on brands my personally opinion is active autowerke(aa tuning) gen 3 catback and their track pipe. ECIS CAI, just as good as the conforti easily, m3 camshafts, and a conforti chip.

as for suspension h&r cup kit, short throw shifter= UUC or aa tuning wheels any m3 wheel and zkws

Thanks for the reply. The track pipe looks good and all, but the little disclaimer on AA's website says that it cannot be used on public highways and is for race use only. It is also not legal for sale in California, which is where I happen to live. For this reason, I have decided on the TSE for now, but I will look into that gen. 3.

If you get the H&R cup kit you also need to pick up a camber kit as well or else you will chew threw tires like a chain smoker with nicorette. As far as numbers go, Conforti claims 17hp or there abouts on a dyno, but I would go along with 20 hp increase as a reasonable amount. But the only way to know for sure is to dyno before and after.

Thanks for the advice, I don't know what an H&R cup kit it though. I was going to go with Koni sport shocks and H&R springs.

Do a search for "M3 cams" for a recent thread where you are expected to get 30 BHp from the cams and chip alone...

you'll get min 30bhp with the cams and chip combined. Some people have said in the upwards of 40-50BHP depending on how you tune them...

I thought that when you change to a m3 cam you had to do a couple of other things to get your car to run correctly? Or is it the chip that corrects that problem?

well the chip corrects a lot but you also need to time your cam.. there is a DIY on pelicanparts.com on how to time your your cams

I was pretty much going to just buy everything at once and take it all to a mechaic to get it all installed. I might do the basics like exhaust and intake myelf, but I don't know the first thing about working on cars. Thanks for the numbers btw, I was hoping for something like a 50hp increase because I had heard the same thing about the chip and cams adding around 30. Also, about how much torque do you all think I will achieve? I was hoping to reach about the performance level of a stock E36 M3.

Based on 30 BHp gain at high revs, I would say 20 - 30 more torque between 5,000 - 6,500 rpm with a loss of torque below say, 4,000...

Not sure about hte others but the Conforti CAI claims something like 8-10 hp, and the Conforti chip claims 22hp. These are both at peak of course.
