My Ride: E30-E46-E90-E90M-F30
mini update: The M54B30 ZHP engine is already here in OKC. Maybe I will get it on Monday and not Tuesday.

Without proper/custom tunning or running a dedicated MS43 or MS45 setup I will not run this engine at its max efficiency/performance. However, I will be content if I get some low end performance (especially more torque) while running my MS42 Map. Of course custom tunning or MS43 or MS45 is a MUST but that won't be later down the road.

agree and I hope so too (more low end torque)

Ps....Will we finally see what Miss flash looks like through pics ? And yes we dont mind pointy elbows the blonde/big boobs makes up for It
You are right. Based on my research I have seen the three following scenarios:

1) People who started the project but never updated their progress (I assumed they abandoned it due to technical issues)

2) People who started the project and said it worked but gave very little background information (the majority falls in this catagory to include a handful of e46fanatics members).

3) People who started the project and completed it successfully doing a complete swap (DME, injectors, TB, wire harness, etc). This is a successful completion is obvious since they are doing a 100% proper swap.

assuming I do not run lean on the car (since I am using the 323/328/325 injectors) and assuming I make ZERO NET GAIN (based on dyno resuots) I will probably leave the engine until I work on the custom tunning or upgrade my DME to MS43/45.
