MarkD's OBD II upgrade for e36

I had the OBD II upgrade done to my '97 328i a while back and just wanted to post a message to let everyone know what a big difference this has made to the car.
The engine is more powerful now and pulls strongly right to the redline; before the upgrade, the power fell off sharply beyond 6000rpm, but no more. Lauching the car at stop lights and highway passing is so much fun now and the sound of the engine is music to my ears.
Fuel economy is improved for both city and especially highway driving, and over the last few months I have experienced a 3-5% improvement. Although this may not seem like much, anything that improves fuel economy certainly helps with today's high gas prices.
Mark D is a great guy and he answered all of my questions before I got my car upgraded. This is a very easy upgrade and I would highly recommend it!

An M3 engine, and an OBDI conversion.
"Driving is like a narcotic, an addiction that can take over lives. It ruins people, breaks families apart, and even kills. It’s habit that needs to be fueled. Time, money, rationality, sweat, knuckle skin, and anyone who disapproves are of little importance to a driver, and are often overlooked. Hi, I’m Nelson, and I’m a drivaholic."
