E36General discussion and technical help for (E36) 1992-1999 3 series cars. 318, 323, 325, 328.
Hmmm.. I would say that out of the hole Vanos is better. Once you are in second gear though the power band is all wrong. I get all of my power from 3500-7000 RPM and everytime I change gears I am right back in the meat of that power band.
Vanos cars kind of lose breath after 5000 RPM.. so you shift sooner putting you at a lower RPM. The non-vanos cars where really popular on the race track. Since 1st gear is almost never used.
Also the 92 was the lightest E36 (Besides the LTW)
