My Ride: 01 330i BLK Sedan
01 330i what other mods should I get?

I purchased this sedan from a former member. Mods already done are: Rogue DMS exhaust, Rogue power pulley set, K&N cold air, UUC lightweight flywheel/stage 2 E39 M5 clutch. I have researched ebay headers but not sold on them with all the problems. I know that stock headers really kill power, but Im in California and need smog. Not sure about cpu mods and if they are worth it. Local guy selling a ess/asa supercharger with 4k miles allegedly, $1800 obo would you jump on it?

Sounds like all motor and no suspension at this point. Coil overs, corner balance, and some track time over a silly supercharger!

Bump...after careful consideration, I really dont want to shell out $5k for a turbo or supercharger. So will headers and chip give my car a bit more go or just a little. I mean is it worth the money.

You will gain 10hp at the wheels with headers. Check out my headers writeup...
