Lightend drive line helps, more so on dyno then on track, if things are too light you don't get the twist snap of the torque and lose speed when u hit it.

Lighter wheels help more

Also there are many 328's that have close to the m3 hp. Check on bimmer forums..

And also i think the i seen on that thread is like 227 rwhp... roughly..
that all depends on what oil you use.
he doesnt need to spend $120 on oil. lol.(unless you are refrencing an e46 m3 which is a completely different beast than the e36 m3. the e46 certainly costs more)
I spent $50 for the oil on my last change, and its great oil to.

Im not saying mods dont add anything to a 328. dont mis interpret what I am saying. fact is you cant turn your 328 into an M even if you think the US spec is not a "True m".This argument is not just bmw specific either...
doogee(Sp) turned out some great numbers for his mods but the same mods to an M would make more power + the other things to the m(like subframe reinforcements which come stock ,lsd etc etc). There is a lot of things to buy afterwards to change out or add that you couldve just had from the start.
That doesnt mean a 328 is no good(and I am not saying that at all). I test drove both(Even one with similar mods to doogee) and preferred the M by quite a bit. It was a no brainer for me.Both cars have similar issues to watch out for.


part prices are the same too. just check online.

and theres not much(if anything) you can do to overcome driveline loss. As I said I think the 328 is a great choice for the op.
at the end of the day both motors are a bit silly to try and make big n/a power on.


Have you run down the 1/4 with those mods doogee?

^^actually, you can turn a 328 into an m3. Swap the interior, exterior, suspension, driveline and brakes, and its an M3. You could re-vin it an M3, and assuming you did it perfectly, no one would ever know.

Very true.

My 328 is a pretty good example. E36's are like Lego's compared to E30s, E46 etc.
