Hey to all, I just picked up a 328is as the thread name states. I was curious if anyone you have any ideas for the first performance mod that should be done. I'm sure that you all do thanks. Oh and if Brad who has a black 328is and goes to Georgian College sees this send me a pm. Thanks
peace

what is your budget? if you have a low budget start with a intake, chip, exhaust or suspension or rims & tires, if you have large amount of cash do what SickFinga mention AA Turbo

hey Waterwings do you know a Barrett at Georgian College, he drives a red 200SX

very minimum gains on the intake or exhaust, but sounds very nice, the chip would be good to, what is your budget?

I still have room for a few cars to take advantage of my introductory obd-2 performance software offer, ($375) but you should use 94 octane for the maximum power increase.

Ypu can contact me at mark@dsylva-tech.ca if interested. The price will be $700 soon for non-M cars.

Carbonio intake system... sound awsome, excellent gains for a reasonable price. Do software last so you can custom map it to all the mods you already added.

software.. most bang for your buck.
but as empowered said... it'd be smart to do it last if you plan on a lot of other mods, so you can custom map it.

M3 cams and M50 manifold with software, CAI and exhaust equal approx 210 RWHp (eurosport kit) and you can piece the parts together used at a reasonable cost. I did that on my 97 2.8 along with pulleys, fan delete and headers.

Umm mulock is attached to yonge street. If you take Yonge towards newmarket it will be on you right. If you see Pfaff Motors you've gone to far. Just turn right onto mulock and your set.

I can't run this special offer for long, I don't make anything at all on it. (plus I should have all ten spots filled in a day or so) But send an email when you are ready and I'll see what I can do.

I'd say an LSD, either a 3.15 differential, or a 3.23. That is where you will see most of your gain in acceleration for the buck.
