Question BMW E36 M3 Boost

I just bought a 1999 M3 Convertible. It has 60K miles and is in perfect condition. It has 240 HP stocked. Whats the simplest thing I can do to it to increase its HP up to 300HP?

Do you want to go Forced Induction?

If not a cam-kit from eurosport will get you to 300 engine horsepower. www.sharked.com for about $3100 or so.

Better bet now is www.techniquetuning.com as his kit produces 350rwhp on 8psi and a totally stock engine with stock compression for $6800..thats about $1500-$2000 off the aa stage 1 kit which produces slightly less power.

Twin Screw by Eurosport as well at Steve (stimpee on the boards) has been most recently said to be out in no more than 4 months.

This estimate is probably fairly accurate in that they stopped giving estimates in February for fear of not meeting them and this new deadline was given hesitantly but I am thinking it will be out come March at the latest.

Purple, Technique tuning is very safe with very quality tuning. The kit puts out 350rwhp on 8psi and there will shortly be introduced a kit for those who want more power. But one owner has had his car for close to 3.5 months now without so much as a hiccup..and it sounds sweet and seems to pull very well. The owner is ///oris on bf.c (something along those lines) just search Technique Tuning in Foced Induction over there.

The TS SC was supposed to be out last March, any idea what the hold-up is? Did the test engine blow up or something? I saw pictures of all of the casts so it looks like all of the parts are in stock.
