why get the 335i when u can have an e90 producing more than 400 hp...u can buy a turbo for cheap..heres on on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/92-98...51640027QQrdZ1

i mean yah its most probably going to be 3-4 grand for an actual conversion and all but come on you will be raping the 335i by a mile and also i love seeing an underdog raping something it shouldnt...

Because it's a bit more difficult that slapping a turbo on and going out for a spin.

WTF does that have to do with anything? From a stock E90, you're going to get 150 more HP from a bolt on?

Yea...... It is very possible, but not likely.

Slapping the turbo on is the easy part. Getting boost past the ECU is VERY VERY VERY hard. Best of luck you your build

That seems a little generous... I would think you'd have to go inside, or add something else. I guess we'll see.

No worries... is little harsh, but didn't quite work.

Nope not generous at all. Installing a turbo is fairly easy (if you have all the necessary parts). Like I said berfore, tweaking the ECU is difficult. Especially on a BMW. I think Horsepower Freaks had some issues with the ECU, but I dono. Make sure you have some $$$$$ to throw down. Best of luck.
