check with RMP, bar none the best in aftermarket BMW stuff. 905-951-0002 talk to rocco or mark

to get stuff done, probly RMP. i allso had the same question as that but it realy comes down to what you are going to do with your car. i am going to turbo the m20. its a farly inexpensive way to get alot of power in a m20. and if your not into tuning it yourself and going standalone, i think it was markD or someone that makes a chip or the m20 that will run with 7 psi.

hope that helps. good luck *th-up*

Just driving around. I am looking around 250-260 hp. I think its a lot for m20old engine if it has turbo. So i need to rebuild it and after put turbo.

it depends how well the m20 was taken care of, there i guy on this forum i forget his user name, but on a well taken care of m20 with hi km's he was runing around 10-15 psi and his new setup will do 20-25 psi on the same motor all thats done is head studs. but on the other hand a rebuild would be a good idea and then you wouldent have to wory about boosting it.

Yea its what I was basically thinking. If I am going with turbo my engine has to be stronger so I need to rebuild engine and after turbo can go there. So RMP or bimmersport?

both great garages, i have personal experience with rocco (RMP), and he is amazing with aftermarket products and high horsepower cars. he will be able to tell whats possible with the m20 and whats reasonable.
