250 hp

I have a 1999 328i. It is stock so what mods should I make to get more hp. I would like to get about 225 250 hp if I could over time.

I am assuming your car is an early E46?

The general consensus seems to be that the M52-M54 engines don't respond to well to the old "hot rod" mods route of tuning and from what I have seen the cost of such mods is high for very little gain.
Sadly I have reached the same conclusion as most others. So for me a supercharger or turbo would be the olny route I'd go down, apart from a small block Ford V8 that is

Good luck,


Aim low, play Bass!
