My Ride: E46 316i
316i upgrade to 118hk?

Hei
I have a E46 316i 1.9 M43 ECE 19990600 (the same motor thats in a 318i i think). Is it possible to change the Electronic Control Unit to the same as they use in a 318i and get 118hk in my 316i???

No, this is probably not possible. It's never gonna be a fast car Save that money and put it towards a 323 or 325 which have the power you are looking for at a very reasonable price.
