Now, these kind of gains on the 330 may be tough with just software changes- it would seen to me that 255HP NA would be close to optimal on the 3.0.
You need to do a little research on the differences between the 330 and 325 and how BMW acheived the Extra power out of the engine to get to 255. No chipping your 325 will do nothing interms of even "almost" as powerful as a 330. There are mechanical differences with in the motor itself, and can not be changed by a simple remap.
and as for this creativeautoworks guy. In the beinging you made it seem "At least to me" as if you were the one remaping these computers. But now since you say. There is another manufacture involved and you are stating what they are saying. Well I am very sorry for coming down on you. Im a man I can addmit my wrongs.
But as for Merc. tuners working on BMW's, thats just amuzing.
and 22hp gains on an engine that is already maxing out its unlikely. Like RichP said, and I stand behind what he says. Every gen. of these cars is getting harder and harder to work with. Just ask the guys at HPF, turbo kit. But no software. Yet. Ive seen rich around on these boards and back in the day on the e46 forums, as I used to own one. He knows what he is talking about.
Evotech software in the beging stages of my MINI modding got me a whole 1.9 HP to the wheels. This was along time ago. Ill search for the dyno results.
