hey anyone have tips for me to get extra bang for buck on adding horsepower? I was thinking of a turbo...anyone know what i should spend and how difficult to install? Any other ideas too would be appreciated... thanx

How much hp are you looking to get? Best bang for the buck can be debatable for your car. If you plan on keeping this car for a while I would personally do an engine swap to an S50/S52 (E36 M3) and that should give you plenty of room to work with in the future.

ya ive considered that...what am i looking at to spend on swapping to M3? What do they go for? id like 300 hrp out of my 325i...I mean if i was going to go M3 I have a friend who just got one same year and convertable m3 out of cali for $2000...So there is a limit...It was a crazy deal but do I just buy new one? Id like to get some hrp out of this without swapping...then if not enough....get M3....I just ordered a turbo...wat next??thanx

i personally think adding turbo or superchargers is like injecting steroids.. effective but problems in the long run.. keep it naturally aspirated +1 for the s50/s52 swap!
