Yes, 250rwhp is about right.
But if I were you I'd go with 3.0l than 2.5l + turbo.
Not gonna be as fast, but more potential down the road with better resale value.

Trust me on this..... I threw the whole "Resale Value" thing out the window a long time ago. I don't care about my resale value. I never worry bout it. But my car is done with quality mods. I just do things to my car that are tasteful and to my liking. I just like the fact that I will be turbo. Hearing a *PSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSST* as I drive by is more pimp than just an M3 engine. Also I don't race. Just need something fast. I can make the 325 REALLY fast if I wish to anyhow.

Anyway, out of your all ideas on how to make your car fast, turbo 325 with 8psi is my second least favorite, turbo 320 being number one.

But it is your car, so do what you want.

And to answer your question, will it be fast?

In my opinion NO, it won't be fast, but it is subjectional, since fast car to me, is something under 12sec 1/4mile

And 250rwhp e36 is going to be in low 13th. In today's world, its definitly not fast.

im kinda on the fence about this. i think im leaning toward just doing the 325 turbo thing. its solid, less money and pretty damn fast. how much faster you want to be? i really have trouble finding places to really go fast with my setup. its nice that i have it, but for the money i probably would have done the same thing.. 325 with turbo , but i really didnt think about FI untill literally 4 months ago. i spent more than i wanted to but thats only because things pop out of no were sometimes.

I think 250rwhp is enough fun to play with in an E36 when you are not worried about racing or worried about those extra .8seconds you could loose to be faster on 1/4 or whatever. Everyone has their own view on fast but to me... I don't race and am not anal about those low 12sec times.

I'm surprised you didn't go Turbo. I personally don't like superchargers much... I'm nore of a Turbo fan. That is why I wanna do the turbo thaaaaang, plus it's more fun and sounds hot.

You think you'll switch later on down the road?

250rwhp is a 3.2L M3 engine with a cam kit, it'll drive better and be 1000x more reliable.

I'm one of those people that like to install it and forget about it, that is why I'm very happy with my sc.. Plus, I can drive it daily with no problem, I even drove it in the winter for a bit.

Obviously, by your standards, my car is slow (similar to 328 acceleration wise)
But it's very fun to drive and I think it's the sound of it that really got me...

I think you should mod your 320 engine, Mitch, I mean, you'd be the only one with it.

I think my set-up will be a little faster than a cammed up 3.2litre. I still don't believe that the cammed up 3.2 will give you 300hp engine hp. 280hp at the most.

I have plans on raising the boost for next year tho.

If you're going to turbo, get at least a 2.8L, they have forged cranks.

I was seriously thinking doing this, but how much faster would I be than a stock 320? Plus I won't have as much torque to begin with. I don't think a 320 engine has much potential to go fast unless I drop A-LOT of money for internals. Plus I'm getting the 325 for cheap, and it has more torque and is closer to being near an m3 engine power wise. 325's have a lot of potential to be made really fast with a turbo anyhow.

Hmmmm... I don't have any access to any 328 for a good price right now. Plus it's not cheap to change it over to OBD1, I might as well wait for a 3litre m3 engine instead for the money I'd put in changing over a 328 to OBD1. Also, I am already doing a lot of things to my car so it's already expensive enough for this year.
