My Ride: 99-328i 00-323i
I ran the car last night for the hell of it. Currently it has the stock 328i throttle body, maf and intake w/ old oem filter. Factory exhaust and all the settings on the piggy back are set to zero as far as performance. So basically a completely stock setup minus the 3.2l with zhp cams and m50 manifold. Car weighs 3580 with me in it and ran 15.01 @94. Pretty slow... But based on hp calculators 232 rwhp. I feel it's broken in, and now ready for the e85, 540 throttle and turbo...

why do you think that?

I actually think its very spot on compared to a few pulls against some modded e36 m3's but who knows for sure. I'm finally ready to put the turbo on (took a little longer than expected) I'll be putting on the hpf aem and taking it down to the dyno for for the last N/A numbers and then bolting up the turbo and fabing the downpipe, and charge piping.

I don't know, I have a tendency to agree. 232whp is about what I estimate I made when I was running 100mph trap speeds in my full weight car, or perhaps I made even less power, others have trapped more with similar weight and 230whp. 200whp yields around 94-96 depending on plenty of factors. both stock e46 330ci and e36M dyno similar numbers in the 190-210whp range. some e36s can't trap but 96mph, others trap 99+/stock. There's a significant variance in what people call stock, and dynos- that difference alone provides enough variance in hp that this question is moot. But 15.0@94 is just a very thin hair faster than my completely stock e36 325i nonvanos.

But who cares!? this project is low compression. The entire point of this thing is to have a charger attached and to fulfill the numbers claimed in the thread title. NA numbers are meaningless.

Your right, I just think n/a numbers are interesting considering it's a completely hybrid motor. But anyway we shall see numbers with a turbo soon.

Good luck with your rear subframe, all that power on these cars it will break sooner or later.

IMO I would have welded the oil pump nut instead. Just like how PEI330Ci did on his build.

Unfortunately when you weld the nut it weakens the shaft. There have been a few people that have still had oil pump failure after welding the nuts. Imop safety wire is the best bet on the oem pump

I drove the car for a couple of weeks like that....then pulled the pump off as part of a rebuild.

It now has a completely different kind of pump on it....no nut.

For the 540 throttle body. are you using complete drive by wire or the semi electronic(wire/computer).

sorry guys its been a while. Ive been slammed with work, working 12-14 hour
days at times and dealing with a custody battle with my kids so haven;t really had much time for toys. The car is still running as a daily driver (on e85) but still naturally aspirated. I plan on getting back into it here as soon as it starts slowing down again.
