There are a few things I'd like to know about the OBD II to OBD I conversion.
- For my '96 318, would it make any real difference in power and fuel consumption?
- If it's software that you change in order to go to OBD I, what's the difference in that and getting a chip for my car to increase HP and all?
- Would it be stupid to convert it after I have 103k on my motor?
- Anything else I should know?

If anyone's done this to their 318, let me know of the results. Thanks in advance

Mike
