Your cars seems to have really good throttle response already right? Mine did.. I checked b4 I bought, I thought maybe previous owner? But no, so I bought put on, car of the line 1/8th of a second if that, but the car actually know when you wanna go, now, there's a 55mph speed limit sign after this light I frequently catch right by my house, all out I was hitting it at 57mph, with sprint booster 60(gotta find a sooner mark don't wanna speeding ticket)

You have headers right? Use OEM gasket or ones that came with headers?

If you're going to go with a catback, get one that you know makes power and sounds good. This particular one from AFE I have on my E46, and it sounds incredible. Of course if anybody is local and wants to hear it, then I can certainly let you hear it as long as I'm here that day of course. Take a look:


aFe MACH Force XP Exhaust System BMW E46 325i/330i

You're looking at +13HP and +15FtLbs:

Wow that's some pretty good gain, get what ya pay for, in this case close to $1000, I'm toying with the idea of converting to a m54b30 with a zhp cam still pricing everything out, would love to stumble across a b30 with a warped head for cheap =D

right now after headers, sprit booster, and new bumper I have $600 in the car fund, between paying my bills and putting what money aside I need for school, the fund grows $300-$400 a month so I have money to piss into the car...
