I've seen some people with an M54B30 N/A builds put down around 230whp. But that's with catless headers, full exhaust, Pullies, intake, cams, tune.. etc.

Really? I've seen like just Over 200 at the wheels for a stock 330 but that was also when they came out so I'll just agree with 195 for my sake.

The only way to make some real power on the 330 is SC'd IMO. Other than that, just be happy with a semi quick car.

Ohh same with me, I just bought a 2001 330i, Black exterior/ tan interior, 5 speed trans. with a sport, premium and cold weather package. Just put some blak grilles and tinted signals looks pretty good (in my opinion)

well i guess you guys are right. hard to put power into a bmw. i might as well use this as a daily driver and buy my dream car a 1998 toyota supra twin turbo 2jzgte with a 6 speed manual getrag. now this car is easy to get it to 500rwhp with bpu. i guess i will just put the k&n intake and a aftermarket exhaust with cat. whats the best cat back exhaust system and headers to drop into these 330's. im looking mainly for one that can give it a deep v8 sound.

yey updates. found a leak in my valve cover gasket going to replace that in the next couple days. a/c issues figured out. my ac wasn't blowing cold enough so started doing some research. my freon level is good ,compressor is kicking on ,and blower motor is kicking on but i did notice my out temp reading was actin funny. going up and down like from 40 to 70 back to 40 so did some more research and found out ether my out temp sensor is bad or the wiring to the out temp sensor is bad and once i get that fixed my ac will run cold again. woo hoo. just getting ready to buy some 8k ccfl halos and 8k hid's for the low/high/and fogs. check engine light is still on and i figured i have a leak in the vac system. can kinda hear it too. just the updates for now will have some more laters and will have pics of the 8k ccfl halos and hids once installed.
