Thanx for the links man... but maybe some external sites perhaps?

Although it seems on the M20 I'd be fine with around 7-10 psi (intercooled of course)... one restriction I can see would be the AFM, I know on my previous E30's it's very restrictive!

Can anyone tell me the years of which E30's cam with the motronic engine management? That would be ideal, since I know someone that can tune the motronic system (on a dyno) and burn a custom chip for my boosted application. So even if I get larger injectors and use an FMU I can taylor the timing to match.

What I really would like to know is the limits of a boosted M20... has anyone seen any claims of 300+ WHP on a stock motor?

I think that the motor should be able to handle it, the straight 6 design gives the motor quite a bit of strength... and by addressing the fueling issues and proper tuning, I'd like to think 300 WHP is possible.

Also, can anyone tell me if there is a way to replace the AFM with something else, like a regular MAF from say a Mustang or other euro car with Motronic management? Say like and Audi S4?
