Twice as much is almost always better !


I've found in cases like this, the SEARCH button is always your best friend.

I'll give you a rolling start, go to page 25 & start reading.

Tim,

Would help to have a bit more information, like mods and your end goal.

So yes, you will want a tune, especially for cams. A tune with cams, headers, intake, and exhaust will help get the most out of your mods. Which cams will you be running? Schrick? Sunbelt?

Without checking into exact specs for your car, which I can do tomorrow when I get back to the shop.... easy answer, of the two, Schrick is cheaper and a good cam, Sunbelt makes more power. Schrick, or something, similar would be good for you though for a street driven car. In some cases, with cams (keep in mind) you might need more work, like MAF, injectors, etc, just depends on which way you lean.

If I were doing it in my E36 or E46, I would be putting cams in if I were tracking the car, so Sunbelt.

Welcome to PM me if you'd like.

The only problem is I cant find either one for a 325i smh, but yeah the more power the better, I should probably get bigger fuel injectors anyway. And thanks for all your help, the cams have had me confused lately
