Your Ride: e30
with the few things i have done to my 4cyc theres no reason it cant reach at least 180... and its not like im trying to brag cuz 75% of the cars on here ar faster than mine... but that munich guy has no idea what hes talking about
Its possible to get them going pretty good i think.. i did a little research a while back as i almost bought an e30 318. I think you can crank up the timing a little and adjust the valves and make alot more power over stock.. and thats all on stock everything, no mods, just tuning.
Theres a good 1.8L tuning thread over at r3vlimited i beleive.. maybe hamman can direct you guys to it..
You can't adjust M42 valves. They are hydraulically self-adjusting.
