i have the powerbox installed in my 325i and you feel a difference in the trottle response mainly, you know how you have to push the throttle past like 3/4th the way to the floor for the car to really kick, the power box makes it more responsive, and it kicks in before halfway on the pedal. i really recommend it for your 325i, lets be honest our cars are the slowest of all the e90s but this makes a little less slow haha

JB3/4 = 80 horse power
PBX - 8 hp

Not quite the same thing It's easier to tune and get more power out of a FI engine vs. NA (less settings to explore)
