An E36/7 is a Z3, and it shares the same engines as the E46.

My Ride: 2003 ZHP 6MT
I just got my stock ZHP (with 144K miles) dyno'd and got just 185 peak WHP on a Dynojet. Seeing a lot of E46 with M54 3.0L engine testing at about 204 WHP, though there were a few others 330's showing around 185-187 WHP. Not sure if my car is just lame or the particular dyno used records lower numbers. Or maybe I need to do the VANOS seals, though I thought when they failed it only hurt low-end torque?

Should I post the dyno slip, or send it to Iceman00 to post?

178 sounds really optimistic for whp on B25. Are you auto or step?
