Talking :Build Thread: E46 325ci Technique Tuning Stage1 Turbo .::NEW PICS INSIDE::.

As the title states this is a build thread for a E46 325ci with the Technique Tuning Stage 1 Turbo Kit. The stock dyno numbers are 174whp and 160wtq. The preliminary results thus far at 6psi are 247whp and 227wtq. This is just 6psi with a basic tune. Nick will be taking it up to 8.5 psi the max for stage1. More on that later. The dyno graph below is a comparison between the stock Dyno and the dyno at 6psi. As you will see in the dyno graph the mid range dips. Most likely need some new spark plugs. Will keep updating as I get new info for you. Here are some pics of the car and what you really want to see the Dyno graph. Comments welcome

I'm not sure what the stage1 kit is gonna be released at. I was first for the 325 cars so he gave me a discount on it. Nick has been an awesome guy to work worth. Always kept me up to date on everything. Just give Nick(owner) a call 954-260-5131.

You have m3 front fenders on the 325ci right? I wasn't talking about the rims i was talking about the rear quater panels, make them match the front.

Anyways man, im very interested in more updates to see what this brings, also you mentioned stage 1, what are the other planned stages and what do they bring to the table?

My bad man I thought you were talking about the rims. I would change the rear panels but then I would have to buy new rims to fit. Most likely will do in the future. The way the car sits now is how I bought it.
Right now the TT kits go to stage 2 for the 330s and that is 13psi and 375whp. But there is always room to grow.
