As the title states this is a build thread for a E46 325ci with the Technique Tuning Stage 1 Turbo Kit. The stock dyno numbers are 174whp and 160wtq. The preliminary results thus far at 6psi are 247whp and 227wtq. This is just 6psi with a basic tune. Nick will be taking it up to 8.5 psi the max for stage1. More on that later. The dyno graph below is a comparison between the stock Dyno and the dyno at 6psi. As you will see in the dyno graph the mid range dips. Most likely need some new spark plugs. Will keep updating as I get new info for you. Here are some pics of the car and what you really want to see the Dyno graph. Comments welcome

congrats on this!!!! Solid numbers! Keep us updated on this! When done, any chance u could dyno it on a dynojet? it's easier to compare to others' dynos on SAE corrected dynojet graphs :).

Keep it up!!!

T4-60 trim compressor with a T3 Stage3 turbine wheel and .63 turbine housing.
So all of the hardware is completely interchangeable between the e46nonM kits?

I used to have that kit, and it's sick. The build quality is amazing. The oil drain, iirc is an aeroquip pushlock hose on brass fittings with the npt pipe threaded in. I don't remember exactly what hose Nick used, but it felt quality like aeroquip hose. I use aeroquip hose on the same type of fitting, on the same type of setup. I kept it as I never has any issue with it.

Pretty much. The 325 kits will use different fuel injectors than the 330 kits, as well as a different MAF and MAF adapter harness. All of the plumbing will be the same though.

You are right. We do use Aeroquip hose for the drain line that is rated for petroleum use and of an appropriate temperature range.

These 325 turbo kits are going to surprise many people with their performance :)
