What do you think a 325is with a 4.10 lsd and a shrick 288 cam with a bav auto chip and cold air intake would run in the 1/4? *good driver*
I am thinking around a 15.0 or maybe a 14.9. What do you guys think?

I have all those mods but the 4.10 lsd.. I working on 14.9 but my best so far is 15.3..

15.0 sounds about right.

I dont think a cam is worth it, too much money for such a little gain. How much time does it shave off of your 1/4 time?

It probably takes time off the 1/4 cause it moves your power band higher up in the rpms..

Just installed a k&N filter with erick luckas heat shield. Man it felt like a new car, throttle response is instant and the sound is incredible! I didnt realize it would make it sound that much better. It really helped the chip out alot! erik made a great heatshield, if you are considering one go with his.

i have, 1988 325is-4.10 lsd,shrick 272/272 cam,custom cai,supersprint headers,jim c chip, m30 afm, adj. fuel pressure regualtor, ik16 denso iridium plugs,8mm ignition wires, and custom exaust system.

I was thinkin around 14.6-14.9, because i raced a turbocharged civic which ran a 14.9 at the track at 7psi. and when i raced him i beat him by 2 cl's and he was at 9psi when we raced?also beat a 15.1 gti vr6 by about 5cl's. :roll:2850lb without me in it, about 3000lb with me. the civic weighed about 2200lbs. :lol:

Lol that civic needs some serious tuning. I can't hang with any of the turbo civics me and my friends build except on the freeway. Now as for other turbo cars around the area I can beat a turbo integra off the line and I can hang with some GTI 1.8T with mods.

Its all about tuning. I have a friend with a old hatch running 6lbs on a stock sohc vtec motor than can smoke this other guy's LS/Vtec turbo hatch. I'm assuming that nobody else for a 50 mile radius has a chip burner :).

I plan to make them both feel like little girls after I get this manifold adapter welded together.

Boost is the answer. After playing around with motor swaps for the last 3 years I've come to the conclusion that though there is no replacement for displacement nothing will drastically change the power of a car as cheaply and easily as a turbo.
