My Ride: E46 318td Compact
Raadman, what if I said that I had a test where a 20td reached 300hp? Of course, the limit of 2.0L engine is exactly the 250hp, more than this is to have the motor "hang by the neck".

We have various 20d with 2260 rollin' daily, and with 240~260hp.
I know that you are always on the physical limit with the Compi, so perhaps indeed it's better to spend your money only once with the swap instead of upgrade 2.0L and then when it blows, swapping it to 3.0L.
As I said, my friend, with that same 184hp engine, only upgraded to 2260, and remaping ang gotten those 260hp with 550Nm. Oh, and has upgraded the clutch as well.

BTW, how is the 330i?

My Ride: compact 320td
As u said, i'm always going on physical limit when on track.. I blowed one m47, so i know that it isn't perfect engine for it..
m57 should be more safe.. Yees, clutch in compi would be upgraded!

Everythink with 330i is ok! I'm preparing it for next season, with 4x10j
