Hmmm. That's weird. When I had the 14.7 vortec fmu I was getting 285hp @ 6500 rpm running 16 lbs of boost on the dyno. And the early model Miata 1.6l engines were the same ones out of the factory turbo 323 gtx, except no turbo. Only problem i ever had was i/c piping hoses popping off lol. Weird. BMWs are a whole new ballgame for me so youre the guru in this case. What do you target your a/f at? Much richer?

And are you saying something like a vortec fmu setup and bigger injectors, no computer work would not work at all or that the fmu would need to be setup to give a different a/f ratio?
Guide me! It's like trying to turbo charge my laptop!
