Thumbs up E46 suggestions

I have a 99 323/325 lowered on springs,installed 6000k hids(depos),leather seats, 7' double din and recently picked up a set of style 5s.

Ive done some research and it looks like to gain a bit more power i will be able to install a 3:46 diff, 330 intake manifold and also e36 exhaust manifold.

so pretty much im just wondering if there is anyone on max that has done any of these mods and if it is worth being done, or even if you have any other suggestions that can be done to e46s

Here are some pictures of my car

on my 330 i put

headers
3.38 diff
K&N filter.

Decent difference.
you can do those 3 mods also. but if your looking for more you can.

Get more aggressive cams
Get software.

if your looking for real gains. then SC or TC.

other then what i listed there isn't much more you can do to get more power

^+1. The 3.46 diff is gonna make the car feel a little more agile, and a bit more fun (Loved mine!). Theres only so much you can do to the car though. CAI, full exhaust will help also, but don't expect to notice much difference. If you're in it for fun, then do the things mentioned, and just have fun with it! if you're in it for serious hp, then a engine swap to maybe a M54B30 would be a good start. Otherwise looks like its coming along nicely.

Like mentioned, if you're going to have bolt-on's (exhaust, intake etc.) don't expect a big difference. Except for the differential it makes a considerable difference in acceleration. If you want to feel a big difference and would want more HP then supercharger is an option.
