I always get the snap on them and even towards some 335's(turbo lag?) Who knows O.O
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it that 328s in California uses the SULEV engine(AKA N51) which has a 3 stage due to different emissions?? IIRC, only difference is that the 328s are detuned so the 3 stage isn't at its full potential, and that a tune would solve this.
