325ci e46 t3/t4 turbo installation questions.

I am going to install a small universal turbo here is the link of a kit i found.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-M52-S50-...c6430d&vxp=mtr

or

http://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-E36-E46-...83e11a&vxp=mtr

I have a small budget but a lot of time. comes with manifold, blow off, inter cooler etc, you can see the rest. normal atmospheric pressure is about 14 psi if i have 180 hp and run half that pressure i would gain 90 hp with about 7 psi. i want a 50 hp gain so that will be about 4 psi. I'm just curious where i could get some tuning software for fuel or specifically would i need a new pump and injectors or just injectors. give me some input, thanks.

You get what you pay for. Do it right the first time and buy a better kit

Technically, after all is said and done an eBay turbo setup would most likely end up being pretty custom as you'd have alot work just to make it run!

I'd bet Technique Tuning could make their 330 kit work for a 325 easily.
