well you wont get much power from these so if your smart and willing and realyl need the power then go for a supercharger or possibly a custom turbo.

If you go with a customer turbo or supercharger, then it'll only cost you around $5000 to $6000 starting.
If you can get piping done for free, or cheap, then possibly a lot less than that still!

Go with a Limited Slip Diff (if you dont have one), M3 cams, M3 valve retainer springs, exhaust, drop in K&N filtercharger, and custom software.
(or just buy NOS and get more HP for your money )

Exhaust, you won't notice a lot of gains. Only in the high end. But something about a nice exhaust tone always put a smile on my face.

CAI -- doesnt do shit in power, only sound (might as well use a drop in intake)
CHIP -- doesn't do shit in power, removes top limiter and raises the rev limiter. for a 328 it's not even a chip it's a software download and u have only 2 options. Dinan's software download or the Shark Injector which i have and the worst $800 bucks i spent.
EXHAUST -- also wont do shit in power, just in sound.

with those 3 mods u might see 0.1 sec in the 1/4 mile and u wasted maybe $2000.

the M3 CAMS - don't know anything about that so i'm not saying good or bad.

the only thing that is worth it, is a LSD Differential from an M3 with a 3.23 or 3.38 (very rare) gearing. that alone should give u 0.2 maybe 0.3 sec on the 1/4 mile. and will only cost u around $1000

other then that it's better to start saving and get the s/c when u can afford it.

thats exactly why i don't bother wasting money on those little mods.

It's hard to find mods for this car unless you're willing to spend $$$. But the rear differential mod would probably one of the best bang for your buck. It does not add HP, but rather "alter" the power curve.

Different diff doesn't alter power curve, just the gear ratios

Yes I know, but I mean in the butt dyno, you'd 'seem' to have more power earlier, because of the closer gear ratio.

listen, all u pple saying intakes or exhausts dont do shit....shut up. let me ask you a question. how fast can you run a mile? 6, 7 or 8 minutes right? okay well now try to run that mile again BUT with your hand covering your mouth. thats right. the whole point of free flows exhaust, intakes is for your car to breathe easier and more efficiently. your an idiot if you want lots of power from these modifications BUT you should know that they do work and they do add power. it also depends on what other things you do to your car. a chip, intake, exhaust is a great combination. sharks increase the air/fuel ratio and usually give off 10-20 hp increases.

that is respectable, though i think the chip gives you more than 10 alone.
