Where can I buy a low ratio diff for my 850i - or can I have one made.

By Mark Webb ( on Thursday, January 20, 2005 - 02:41 pm: Edit

i have a 'v' reg '99 316 compact and they have the same engin as the 318 (a 1895cc) so as far as i am aware the only difference is mine being electronicaly limmited? could re-mapping the ecu as a 318 allow me the exrta 35bhp? or has the 318 got variable valve timing etc? I don't know mine may already be variable vale?

Ow and it's a E36

Any help welcome.

I had a viper induction kit fitted - it makes a great induction roar but I didn't really notice any performance improvement (in summer) except for it being more willing to rev higher and freer. When winter came things changed a lot - I guess the cold air from out side the engine is much cooler than that in the engine bay and you get a better burn mixture.

The ram air effect does not really kick in unless your pulling a ton!
