Chip for a M20 B20

I'm trying to find a chip for my 320i. All I've found so far are 325i's and 318's. Anyone know if Conforti or MarkD make chips for the b20's? I'm hoping they do as I want to start on some performance mods. Thanks

I don't think so. The 320i's is a smaller motor. So i'm guessing i don't want to send the same amount of fuel into the motor. I've had a hard time finding anything for it. They weren't exactly meant to be fast cars.

they still faster than 318
things for a 325i still work for the 320i, air flow, exhaust and everything like that but no big performance parts, maybe they have chips in germany

I've talked to some buddy's back in germany. They say parts are about as abundant as they are here. There was never much of an aftermarket for the 320i, it's kind of a bastard car. No chips, cams or heads can be found to make any real difference. Do markD or conforti custom write chips? I'm guessing it will be expensive but it's really my only option. I don't want to do an engine swap.

Yeah the 320i is a strange beast. It even has the worst fuel economy of all the M20 variants, even larger engines like the M20b25.

i guess there isnt much to do with the 320i, but think you might as well just keep it like that and have fun with it
anyways its not like you needed that much speed in canada
get nice wheels, new suspension and just have fun

Don't waste money on that thing.

Buy an M20B25, and throw it in. So cheap, so effective.
