    hi y'all I've done all my maintenance I can, except for preemptively replacing my pcv system and the vanos unit, I want to do headers as my next mod for power. the AA headers run about 600 usd, but if I buy these I have to go the s/c route or stay N/A. I lowkey want to just spend 2k on the cx...

    Hi! I am a 19-year-old kid and I wanna turbo and manual swap my e46. I am kinda on a budget, but I want it to be pretty fast. I was just wondering if anyone has any turbo kits or recommendations for parts. Also if I could maybe get an estimate on how much it will cost to turbo my car reliably...

    I was wondering people's opinions on a 325i with a 330i swap, Schrick track cams(272, 264) and a CXRacing turbo kit, with an LSD and OEM+ interior upgrades? Anything else major I should do?

    How are we all doing? Welcome to the e46 RHD turbo build. For too long has there been a blanket of information about turbocharging a RHD model of these cars, and if you did you always missed out on something. Often it is the AC, or you cant fit a full 3" dump. Some even going as far as to cut...

    I wasn't sure whether to post on long dead forums, start a new post on Romraider's forum, or some other facebook group but e46fanatics seems pretty active. I have lots of questions concerning the MS42 maf scaling tables on Romraider and Tuner pro which on both the community patchlist .xdf and...

    I got my 325ci in exchange for my Volvo V70. After I tuned my friends Nissan 200 with M50 I decided that it would be a bit more power in my car. Bought a m54b30 engine along with a 5 speed zf box. A cast manifold with T3 flange, two gst 450 fuel pumps, forged rods, dp pistons, flywheels...

    My slow sled: 2000 E46 320D touring, 136 horsepower, 5 speed manual trans, 200,000 km. In the past two years the car has had lots of new parts installed but right now the issue is a lack of power. It should have 136HP but feels like 46HP. I replaced the turbo a year ago and the car has been...

    Hello forum members I have BMW E46 220D 2004 model and when I fast accelerate I loose Turbo and EML light goes on. If I instantly switch off and on the engine while driving, EML light goes off and turbo recovers. If I slow accelerate there is no problem. Problem is only with fast acceleration...

    Hi guys, I'm new here. :hi: I have a nagging problem with the acceleration on my 2000 E46 320d (136hp). The problem being... there is almost no acceleration.

    Hi Everyone, I have an weird problem with my 330D. If give the car more than 50 odd % throttle below 2000 rpm you get this weird screeching or almost what sounds like to me stalling sound. If however you ease into the RPM and get above 2K its absolutely fine you have full power. I suspect that...
