shark injector

I was just wondering if anyone has bought a shark injector for there 2000 323i? If so was it worth buying it?

Does anyone have it at all?

How does it affect the off the line performance?

I disagree.

I think the Shark Injector would be one of the first mod I would do, especially for a 323i/ci.

I have it on one of our E46's. It litterally bring the engine to life. Revs up to 7000rpm (awesome sound with a CAI by the way).

The throttle response is greatly improved.

If you are looking for pure horsepower, then you will be disappointed. If you want a more responsive/agressive engine, GO FOR IT.

I don't have number for the 323 but we have dyno charts on the website for the E46 325 and 330: http://www.corner73.com/product_info...roducts_id=315

You might also want to read the faq: http://www.corner73.com/docs/sharkfaq.pdf

+1

I purchased the Shark Injector for the E46 M3 thinking that it would be a very mild upgrade. The difference is definitely noticeable. I agree, go for it. Best bang for the buck mod IMHO.

seriously shark is very overpriced... it's a software but you can't reuse it!

At least if you buy a computer software you can install it many computers.. that's so dumb..(of course good for sellers)

I believe you can reuse it on another similar vehicle (once you revert the car back to stock programming, the shark can reprogram another car.)

It's not dumb, it's called anti-piracy and you shouldn't be copying software onto multiple cars/machines anyway. When you purchase software, you purchase one license to use it.

i dont think you can re-use the shark on another car after you have used it, from the faq:

Is it possible to “share” the Shark Injector?
No. Because the Shark Injector needs information from the car’s DME that is specific to the
car itself, the unit cannot be used on another car. The Shark Injector will give you Error
Code 162 if it has been previously installed on another vehicle.
A note about eBay or buying from the Classifieds: the Shark Injector is designed to be used
on one car and only one car. Once it is used on a car the Shark Injector cannot be used on a
different car. Even if the Injector was removed from the car, specific vehicle info is stored
for the next time and the Injector will not work on another car. In other words, once it has
been plugged into the car and the button is pushed, it stays with that car.
