The wife just bought this today. I like it a lot! I already have a need to spice it up a bit. I'm looking for the quick hits for HP and then the long term hits. I'm very mechanically inclined, as I've rebuilt/restored several American vehicles over the years.
What have you guys done? Easy stuff that I've done for other vehicles include Super Chips, cold air filters, headers, throttle body replacement, wheels/tires, exhaust.
I think this was rated at 186hp. I definitely want to move it from there!
Thanks a lot. I'm excited!!!
Welcome. Yes, pretty much what M3UOND said covers what can be bolted onto an E46. Since it only has the 2.5 engine, supercharging it is the best way to get power out of it. RoadsterMadness, a member here, supercharged his z3 2.5 (same engine as your 325) and he says that he's pushing ///M roadster power.
