I dont actually agree with that.

I personally would rather spend money on f/i then just doing a motor swap.

for realls, with all the mods i have now and than a 6psi supercharger i will have just over 300hp.

fyi. a 323 has a 0.7sec faster 0-60 time than the same year 325. same size engine same tourque and its 55lb heavier.

I'll still eat you with my S50 E30. Haha. Sounds fun man. Supercharged M50s are cool, that should be cool too!

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

there was no 325 in the same year as a 323, they had 328's...

and here are ur 323 specs
(168 hp) @ 5500 ---- (181 ftlbf) @ 3950

and teh 328 specs

(190 hp) @ 5300 ----- (207 ftlbf) @ 3950

325 specs

(189 hp) @ 5900 ------ (184 ftlbf) @ 4200 with vanos
(189 hp) @ 5900 ------(181 ftlbf) @ 4200 non vanos

u might have the same torque, but im srrsly nig, 323 is only better than a 318...no bashing intended, just str8 facts, wat u should do, if u havent done already, go obd1 and get a m50 manifold, new software, exhasut, and ill think ull be back to 325 spec, im not sure what else is needed to get that 20hp back...

to each his own

from my understanding the S52B25 is a much more poorly made engine than the previous M50B25(jason chime in i know you know this better than me)...you may want to consider rebuilding the engine pre supercharger...thats why i said you would probably be better off swapping engines..

eitherway with your current mods plus supercharger you MIGHT see 250hp at the wheels....the VF kits are not known to double a cars power

What mods do you have that will give you the +50hp from the alleged 250 you will get from the VF?
