Look for Pencil Geeks dyno db (database). You can find those with bolt ons only (assuming this is what you mean along with no primary cat delete) who have made the most power and copy their mods. Post up the results!

Sure thing, car came in for Macht Schnell Stage 2 Intake upgrade.

STD


SAE


Modification List

Before
- BMC Filter
- RPI Scoops
- Macht Schnell Underive Pulleys
- RPI X-Pipe, no primary/secondary catalysts
- RPI Axleback system

After
- Macht Schnell Stage 2 Intake System
- Macht Schnell Underive Pulleys
- RPI X-Pipe, no primary/secondary catalysts
- RPI Axleback system

This M3 is still on stock software, showing the DME is very good at adapting to mods. Tuning would make these already incredible numbers even better.

Unfortunately, these are the bottleneck to making any serious power. The primaries are very restrictive.

+5-6hp isn't out of the norm from the Stage 2 over the Stage 1 system.

Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions so I don't accidentally hijack the OP's thread.

Bummer, that's what I thought. No way to get that kind of power with the primaries still on. I guess I had my hopes up .

Bro! what's the big deal, we still have 4 years before our MY08 cars get inspected since the new Quebec Emission law concerns only 8 year old cars and by 2016 you'll probably have a new ride

just my 2 cents but if i was you, i'll go the 400whp + way , life is too short

cheers!
