• Evolution Raceworks and BMS (Burger Motorsports) hit 270 wheel horsepower with tune and downpipe for the F30 328i N20 turbo 4-cylinder

      The new N20 turbo motor is going to become a very popular tuning platform and is already off to a very good start. 270 wheel horsepower on a dynojet is right in the range of what the E9X 335i put down stock. So essentially a tune and a downpipe and you hit stock 335i power. The N20 is not going to going to give up a whole lot and is going to be the definitive BMW tuning value. Also keep in mind this is early on so gains of 37 wheel from the baseline with a tune and downpipe are just the beginning.







      Dyno below. Blue is stock, red is BMS Stage I, and green is BMS Stage I with Evolution Raceworks downpipe:

        There is no 128i of the new F20 model. The "old" 128i was sold as 130i in Europe, IIRC.

        Gotcha, so the 125i has the N20?

        Yes, exactly. But with 218hp instead of 245hp like the F30, which is why I'm wondering whether there are any hardware changes or if it's just a different mapping that provides the F30 with more power.

        Wish I was more familiar with European motor offerings but I would guess software only.

        I guess its like Audi does. the 2.0 TFSI was available with 200hp in hte GTI and A3, and could be found with 185 hp in the Seat Leon. Same story with the old 1.8T. An aftermarket tune would yield the same output for both 185hp and 200hp models.

        We have the N20 downpipes, Stage1 tuning, and CAN Tool (to suppress the codes) all in stock and ready to ship. Click here to enlarge

        Took you a little while to get to this. Is the call system working for you? @Terry@BMS

        I'm looking into this as an option, my brother is about to order his 328i m-sport soon...

        Do you think I can get away with running a catless downpipe with an external wideband o2 that fakes the value back to the ecu anyway? (from plx if you know them)

        379+495+140 is a pretty decent deal for this type of power really and maybe we could even get a package. I have never tuned another car that is this inexpensive within months of being released.

        One of the graphs I saw seemed to indicate that the boost runs in the 20psi area or 3psi over stock because the stock map seems to vary a bit.
