Wow sorry abotu that i'm retarted. It completely slipped my ming that you have an OBDII car. You aren't getting a chip at all. You are getting shark injection. Tht generally does cost more but I didn't expect it to be a full $100 extra. Truthfully I DON'T think it would be worth it. From what I rememebr shark injection doesn't always increase horsepwoer but rather just raises the rev limiter, somethign that isn't always a big thing you are looking for in an Automatic Car.
I am strickly a E36 guy right now.. and havnt had the time to branch out yet.. and do mad research.. but have you looking into the Conforti chips... does he make them for your year/model?.. check TMS.. they carry them... if they dont have it on their web site... they will probably be able to get it for you..
BTW it is very much worth 350... its a great mod.. I love mine...
Install it... drive for a month.. then uninstall it.. and you will see the results. Clear as day.
The 323i was OBDII. It was a 2000 year model.
The software removed the top speed limit, increased the redline by a couple of hundred RPM, and made the car feel more responsive.
With that, and the CAI I had, I ran 197 whp on the dyno.
