Well maybe he bought the 325I long before the 335 came out so get out of this 335i vs 325i conversation.

Honestly he has you guys beat because he payed what like 18 grand less that you guys?

Lol!
Well said...lol

BTW.. this mod DOESN'T work on the 328's guys... I've done a pretty decent amount of homework on it and spoken to Turner Motorsports about it (they sell a lot of these kits for the 325's).

we need our own reflash 1st and then it could be possible but until then, the engine won't run properly with the 330 intake manifold.

haven't heard of going that route... i know the 330i intake manifold fits on our engines its just the engine management (software) doesn't work.

speaking of which, what is the difference between the US 330i (255hp) and the EUR 330i (~270hp)? Hardware or programming?

probably

from what i understand, the 325 US spec with the 330 intake manifold and ecu programing puts out just about 270hp so maybe the stock US 330 was just tuned down a little from its max potential.

It was something like Rich something. I believe he posted in my thread a few years ago:

I'm too lazy to go through the 27 pages and search.

I wonder if I can pickup a 330 manifold from the junk yard?

Active Autowerkes is "supposedly" still working on a tune and if that happens this mod could potentially work for the 328's if they can map it properly.
