With your ECIS you should have almost 235HP anyway.

BTW according to the articles the additional 10HP was gained w/ ECU reprogramming and new camshafts. Any aftermarket sport cams will give you a bigger gain than that.

Not just a exhaust

There are new cams, engine management, and exhaust and probably half the power if from fixing the problems of our current cars.

I'm interesting in the exhaust though as a retro-fit. It is supposed to be more aggressive and more power.

It's not only the extra 10 HP

They added a sixth gear and changed final drive ratio. I think the mototronic tuning is where all the power is from but it get's the car from 0-60 in six seconds! I'd say you can feel that. That's like saying you can feel 10HP from a air intake.

quit yer cryin
how do you think us 328 owners felt after we heard the 330 was coming out
That's only 10hp that can be easily gained with exhaust and intake. There's a difference of 32 hp between the 328i and 330i.
