How much HP does my car have?

Hey Guys,

I am posting this here, because I have an M50 in my car. I am curious what you think my car has HP wise.

1995 (vanos) 325i motor
BMP cams
genie headers
full brullen exhaust (dual 2.25")
no cats
CAI

The engine is 195hp stock, right?

Thanks for the input.

I would guess 220hp with your mods. The cam mod should be significant.

awsome. Thanks for the input guys. That is what I figured the hp would be. How much more would the car have if it was chipped?

I'd say you have 20hp more than stock with your mods.
With a chip, add another 15hp or so to that, possibly more if you get one custom made for your car.
