    Suggestions?

    Hello,

    I have a 523i BMW F10, other than appearance mods, everything else is stock. I would really like to know whats out there on the market for me to do, I'm sitting on an I-6 naturally aspirated engine, and i really would like to have a quad exhaust system, drop it about an inch, possibly get a Cold air intake installed, and maybe an upgraded ECU chip, need to boost my performance, my car looks the part, but doesn't perform like it. Don't get me wrong I love my car to bits, but i want more out of it. Any suggestions, thoughts please help!!

    Most people will tell you there isn't much you can do to the motor.

    Your best bet is a tune, headers, intake, and exhaust. That's about all you can do.

    Checkout www.burgertuning.com and www.turnermotorsports.com.

    HR sports springs would be good for lowering for ~1inch

    Have you talked to @OE Tuning regarding a flash?

    We know the N52 has options as the forum section shows. You could just look in the forum...

    Salam AYF23,

    A while back I had headers made for the e90 N52. When I did this I had the shop make one and only one set of headers for the e60 n52 motor. I don't know if they are the same part# on the F10, but let me know if you are interested. I can give you adapters that clear out the Check engine light too.

    For the record, I have the n52b25 engine, which I am assuming you have. I made about 10whp and 10wtq with these, which is a cat delete based on the stock design.

    Doesn't look like the best header design in the world there but great gains for keeping the OEM design and essentially deleting the cats. Cost effective solution too.
