3. Do turbo
Turbo is literally the last option on my mind. If not done properly, it would destroy the engine. And I'd hate to see that.
I'll look into the intake and manifold idea.
Thanks

I remember a guy made about 20whp with intake, fan delete, tune - dyno proven. Also, the long tube intake made very good power....

Guess about 30-35whp extra for all the bolt ons ( M54 intake manifold, headers, intake tune exhaust) and maybe 10-15whp with 264/248 cams. You should be making close to 330i numbers without the harmonic issues.

Fan delete? Is a short intake worth it you think? Or CAI is the way to go?
