Now--a 335 w/ 8 sp AT and a BMW power kit.....could get interesting.
I think the powerkit is overpriced for 20hp..... and if it's anything like the Hartge kit where it only works at 70%+ throttle, then I'm off board.

Most of the tunes on the market are offering almost triple the gains that BMW powerkit is offering.
