Okay so I have a 328 engine converted to obd1. I have a true CAI installed and that's about it that's installed. When the weather gets nicer in march I'm putting in my UUC TSE exaust that is sitting on my couch, installing my m3 cams, installing my TMS/Conforti Chip, installing my UUC underdrive pulley's and the fan delete mod.

Is it time for forced induction or is there anything else I can do?

I already have the m50 maifold as I have done the obd1 conversion :P I have headers already too. I do have a UUC SSK already. I think I'll get a lightweight flywheel and then supercharge it. the throttlebody thing isn't worth it for the money if you ask me. thanks for the help guys

Maybe you're just a little un-educated about throttle bodies...

A Dinan Throttle Body allows 20% more air into the engine, in turn giving you quicker throttle response and much more low end torque not to mention a bit of HP. Here's the specs from the Dinan website:

Peak Horsepower: 5 @ 6500 rpm
Peak Torque: 4 lb/ft @ 6500 rpm

Why have a high flow CAI and no way to get it into the engine faster?

yes, but that's boder line worth it at the cost of those things. A CAI makes a big difference even without the improved throttle body or new AFM for that matter.

It's not just how much air, but how efficiently it flows. The stock airbox causes significant turbulance and restriction based on it's design. A CAI draws cooler air and flows more freely based on it's design. Meaning their is more air on tap at more revs, meaning more power available.

Don't get me wrong I'm all for a hi-flow TB, but I'd want to add an e39 540 AFM at the same time to really see much of a difference. And that's a chunk of change.
