Just bought a supercharged e46!
Bought this car today, it is a 2000 323ci 5spd with a vortech supercharger. 185k miles, so far has been awesome I'm already in love! Aside from regular maintenance, I have big plans for this car, starting with a facelift, and an aftermarket stereo, this my first BMW and first manual and it's great!

How many hp does a supercharged 323 have?

And welcome to the site!

That's nice. Love the interior. Enjoy!
Get some wheels too.

Car looks great! That interior looks great but I would change the wood trim asap. :thumbdwn: oh and welcome:hi:

Thanks! I'm not sure on the HP, seller did not have a dyno sheet. 19 inch wheels are planned in the future, and the wood trim will be replaced since it's cracking in a few spots on the door. I'm a DIY type so I'm glad I found this forum!

Yea just prime and paint the trim.

Welcome nice 323, good to see people keeping the stick shift BMW faith! If you're interested in meet ups with local BMW fanatics check out azbmw.org we have a group drive to Prescott this Saturday.

Could you take a video of the BOV?

I like the red. Keep it clean.

If I were you I would stay clear of 19's unless you get something light weight. The smaller the better. It won't rob you of power.

Saw that on Craigslist yesterday...congrats! Have fun!

Super clean car for the miles!!! Shouldn't that blow off valve be recirculated though???

raidenE46 04-12-2011 03:11 PM

thanks again. About recirculating the BOV, is there a benefit to do this on an e46? It is setup for atmospheric blow off, can someone enlighten me if there is a better way?

dsblk93gt 04-12-2011 03:26 PM

I am not so sure with BMW's but normally an supercharged/turbocharged MAF car should have a recirculating valve.
