Hey all.
As it says I'm new to the BMW scene. I'm looking into purchasing a 330ci and was wondering if I could get a little help/info about the problems they may have with boost. I'm from Toronto and work in a performance shop here. We do a lot of high performance with rotaries, DSM's and other mainly Japanese imports.

I guess my biggest question is this. What is the 330ci powerplant capable of. How much boost can these engines hold?

I have been searching the net for turbo/supercharger kits for the car and I have only found 2 both of which are good for about 270WHP which is rather weak.

I don't mind doing internals and headwork but I don't know where to start my search for adequate parts.

A little guidance would be appreciated!!

Thats one of the kits I already looked at. The car dynoed at a measly 277whp.

I guess I'll re-word my original question.

Is it possible and how do I get around 350WHP from a 330ci. Obviously I'll be doing internals but what is my max achievable with supercharger and bolts-ons. Also what is stock compression on those cars?

if you are looking for more HP, start off with an M3... there are more performance parts for that

i concur. ///M is the performance line of BMW, so that is the best place to start. you can get 420+ hp out of them without much effort.
