A well tuned and properly sized turbo could spool up sooner than 3k. A ltw flywheel would also help with this.

There is NOTHING available for the 320i unless you go custom, which is not worth it anyway

I had a 320 for 8 yrs. I had it chipped for 5 yrs and it gave alot more pep than the standard engine and I was happy with it. This summer I transplanted a 325 engine into it right before I sold it. I was happy with both ways and those that drove my car when it was a 320 can vouch that it pulled quite nicely.

Alot of people hate on 320's for some reason but I can vouch for mine that it was a damn fine car! I still miss it... :(

Save your time and money. Get rid of the engine.

I own a 320i, believe me.

The only custom thing you'll have to get is software. Kit itself will bolt right up.

Yeah, why custom?

Any 6 banger kit will bolt right up, just put a smaller turbo on there better tuned for a 2.0L like a Garrett T25BB, and software for a 2.0L.
A turbo for a 2.0L like this: http://www.horsepowerinabox.com/hpiab2/prod17.htm

Or if you want something that'll spool up quicker, a GT28RS Disco Potato will do the trick, and keep a little more money in your pocket.

hey thanks guys !

im still looking for turbo because i dont want to swamp my engine .. and i think it should do some interesting numbers or maybe not ... anyway like you say any 6 banger kit will fir so .. if i decide to swamp my engine i can keep all the hardware beside the computer ... but anyway im thinking of motronic so .. but as for the power i realy dont want to eat a 911twin turbo so .. for me a turbo 2liters should do the trick ... plus i got the car for so cheap i realy dont want to put an other motor the one thats in there still pull strong i i just love the sound ... its happy ...

I'm telling you. It's not worth it. I swapped my 320 engine out and put a 30,000km 3.2 S52 M3 engine in my car. After a month I got bored of the power. It still puts a smile on my face but not like it did. you'll never get enough of power. I love that it is N/A tho. With turbo and superchargers you will run into reliability problems. For the same money or less you can find a 328 engine and get M3 cams and have a quick/reliable little car.

Still don't think it's worth it for him to do an engine swap if he's looking for a little more pep. Especially in Quebec, a lot of those guys ship their e36's to Toronto to get engine swaps done. A turbocharger most shops can install, or he can do it himself fairly easily. I say get the Turbokit, bolt it on. If you decide later on to drop another engine in, the turbokit is transferrable to the new engine. If you don't want to drop shitloads of money on your car, this makes the most sense to me.

Turbo is best bet for sure.

Save your money and save yourself from a headache (especially with a custom kit).

328 engine... converted to obd1 with m3 cams. Enjoyable power with the reliability to come with it. For around the same price.

What more could you ask for?
