The added horsepower these particular cams add is negligible for the amount of work you'd do.

Go Shrick or save your money.

I love reading posts like this. Back in 2008-2010 Cams used to be $299, BMW Perform intake was like $300, Strut Bar was like $250

Now everything is like $1,000. Talk about supply and demand. A $750 price increase? You must have sold all the cams in the nation on that deal, because your scarcity must be next to nothing. But its funny when we all go to look for E46's to buy, you would think all these cars would have these items because they were sold so fast at such a low price...but no, nothing. Baffling.

Back in 2008 you were 15

Everyone who bought these parts still loves their cars and likely still has them on. Can still get an M3 strut bar for pretty cheap right even brand new.

The BMW performance intake was available for $275 as recently as 2011.

Just goes to show you how much we get butt rapped. You would think the older the car the cheaper the after market parts will get

I love ECS tunning and I'm sure they will say the supplier increased the wholesale price so they had to increase the sale price but from $299 to $940? lol...thats insane.

Im still waiting for the Shark Injector to lower their price.....I been waiting 5 years now...lol

Increase your horsepower, torque, and redline with this all inclusive kit from BMW.

* Increases engine performance to 235hp
* Boosts torque by 8 ft lb
* Raises redline to 6,800 rpm (from 6,500 in the regular 330i)

Note: For E46 330i (without option Performance Package) from 03/2003 on with electronic control unit MS 45

Click HERE for more information.


Please let us know if you have any questions! Feel free to shoot me a PM or email.

Best,
Joe

What all would I need to do this swap onto an m52tu? Ik it might have been mentioned earlier but it wasn't to clear on what engine he was referring to, as much ad I've read I might need new springs and maybe a shark tune? Or was that for a different application?
