um.. are you kidding? 325 6.3 ? um your thinking of the 328. supercharged 325 can barely hang with an m3 .. people keep adding hp like it can be added
6 hp exhaust and 6 hp intake does not = 12 and hat ever a company states ake like 30 % of that and if your lucky you will get that number.

FWIW, the numbers I saw from C&D are 5.6 when they first tested the 330i, 5.9 when they tested it after keeping it for 40K miles in their long term fleet: http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...term_road_test

But 6.3 for a 325i and 6.0 for a 330i wouldn't surprise me, if the first was a MT and the second was an AT. Or just normal variability -- a good time for the 325i and a not so good time for the 330i. 325i is not slow.

so 328 is (0-60 on 6.1) and 325 is (0-60 in 6.3) the 15 crank hp gives .2 not bad.

I thought the 325 had 178 RWHP. I really doubt you can get 250..ish at the wheels.

Drivetrain loss numbers appear to be closer to 20% judging by the numbers I've seen on the forum as far as RWHP goes. You're probably looking closer to 230 at the wheel if the numbers pan out. Anything better would still be very nice though . Either way, thats still a massive gain if its provable.

That aside, I'm still very curious to see if this chip produces the numbers they claim. It'd by far be a better way of spending the money for gains that a gruppe M which produces very little for the astronomical cost. I mean it's nice. But that's alot of money for an intake.
