[SIZE=1]I was looking at AA's website cause I am heading over there tomorrow (whoohooo!!!!), and most, if not all, of the dyno runs used to show hp gains are done on M3's. So I am thinking that if you put a chip, exhaust, intake, etc. on a M3 and a 325is/i will the M3 have greater hp gains? If so, why?

are u talking about the e36m3 and 325?
i believe the same mods will give the m3 more hp cuz of the engine size.

i agree with tmdkit. although there probably isnt a huge difference as long as u dont compare obd-1 to obd-2.

OK, looks like I forgot about a few factors. E36 325i OBD-I vs. E36 M3 OBD-I.
