The 3L comes out with about the same hp as what I got but with more torque down low this will be a good project try and aim for 300 hp

no i mean the 130i the 135i cams i dont think will work well... bmw may have limited power with cams on the 125i... if not its probably down to intake exhaust and tuning

This was the greatest and sadest thing I have ever read. Amazing that the 323 can produce some fine number (am defiantly interested in getting mine to 170kw) but a shame that the beasty died in that way if you have any parts left over for cheap, I just started a new job and decided I'm going to pour cash into my 323 rather than buy a wrx hahahaha Hope your new project is turning out well, shame to read all this and hear about your 323's death though.
