    M54b30 Tuning

    Hi everyone, this is my first time here, I was looking for help for my project 2003 530i, my project is to turn this car to Alpina, exterior and interior ( my interior is navy blue so I don't thing I am gonna change it). My topic is to how I am gonna achieve certain horsepower, 330hp or 280whp. Any recommendations for me? Thank you.

    With many of the usual bolt ons and equipment and a well-made tune, the M54B30 can achieve around 225-230whp at best.

    For your goals you'll need a supercharger or turbo, or at least some wild camshafts and a lot of head work.
