When I first drove it, it felt faster. I just got back from Dynospot Racing in San Jose again and the numbers confirm my initial impressions. I don't have the file yet but I do have a print out. The car makes 210 hp @6200 rpm and 202 ft-lbs tq @2750 rpm. 175 ft-lbs tq are available at 1500rpm and doesn't really drop off until 6000 rpm. Since I have the 3-stage manifold there are torque peaks at 2750 and 4000 rpm. And remember, I have 150,000 miles on my car! Considering that I think I finally have a working 3-stage manifold swap with all the kinks worked out. It would be nice to get a stock 330 on the same dyno I used to see how far off I really am.
210 hp from an 330i ? That seems a bit low. On an stock e46 330i ATM Dyno was able to squeeze 225 hp at the wheel and 260 hp at the engine. We would do much more than 210 hp on an e90!! We are doing the 325i to 330i conversion this week and will post the results along with our e46 330i results, but expectations are obviously beyond the 225hp we got from the e46. I have looked up this dyno run from turner motorsport as well and their 216 hp also seems low in comparison. I guess we just do things differently in the Middle East. If any e46 owners is interested in our ECU flash please let me know as we provide a 500$ option of sending you over the ECU file. Will post our version of the conversion and the dyno run we achieve but already I can guarantee an edge over turner motorsport.
