Yeah, most likely. I would if I still had either of them. Are you running a TRD close gear ratio or the stock gearing? My 335i is plenty fast, but still no where near as fun as an 86. The 4AG really is such a rev happy engine. I think I spent more time above 4k rpm than below it! Turbos have better torque than NA, but there is a night and day difference in terms of throttle response. For diesels I just do a "no lift" shift, i.e. just keep you foot slightly on the gas rather than taking it off completely.
