hi, just signed up here, tho ive been using these forums for a lot of research on stuff for my 325i.

so, about my car

its a 94 325i, with a homebuilt cold air intake ;)

otherwise its pretty much completly stock. i had a 12" sub and a touchscreen head unit in there for a while, but decided to take it out so i could sell it.

i might sell it soon, but im not sure. definitely going to keep it if i can. theres a lot i want to put into it/

so, if i do keep it, im eventually going to throw in a AA supercharger..

put in racing seats with full harnesses. (but keep it so i can always throw the back seats back in and just stow the harnesses in the trunk or w/e.

after i finish that im hoping to get coilovers, strut bars, new wheels+tires, and carbon fiber hood.

i wonder if in the long run tho, if it would be better to do a s54 swap?


and if i did that wich would be better, supercharging it? or doing a twin turbo setup?

as for my application for this: track days+daily driving

edit: if you dont have nething positive/constructive to say, or youre just going to flame me, stop reading here and go away plz..

so i was just talking with one of my friends and he suggested i do a LS1 swap instead. this sounds like a not so bad idea, from what ive read the ls1 is an excellent motor and puts down some serious hp. what do you guys think?
