I have a 1994 318is with a 5 spd, while it is quick, it is not fast. What is the most affordable way to give this engine some kick without endangering the engine or the tranny. My buddy in a v6 accord is bragging about how fast his stock car is, i just wanna go out with my little 4 banger and burn his ass.

Supercharging the 318 is supposedly very reliable. Said not to shorten the engine's life one bit. With the DA supercharger you'd be owning stock 325's and 328's

How about the "bling bling" , or the "pull some panties down" in bimmer effect. Bimmers are wonderful multitaskers.

Nah, there are new kits out there for $2800. Even the famous Downing Atlanta sells for around $3200-$3400 now.

Not only will the supercharger (I recommend the Downing Atlanta unit) boost your power, but the 318 is closer to the perfect 50/50 weight distribution than a 325 or 328. I think, if you have the cash, you should get the blower, upgrade your suspension (Think coilovers, not JUST lowering the car, plus beefy sway bars, maybe a strut tower bar or two). then take HondaBoy out on a track and whoop his ass. I know of a few guys that have 318s that constantly beat higher-powered cars on the track all the time. Hope this helped,
-Tim
