Default 320i N20 Tuning Discussion - 05-28-2013, 10:12 AM

Hi all,

I am looking to buy an F30 320i with the "neutered" N20 engine. I understand it's the same engine as the F30 but with higher compression and less boost.

What tunes are out there for this engine, and what sort of gains are there? I search but only found a few items here and there... Hoping to create a repository here with all the 320i N20 "neutered-mobile" tuning info here! So that we can put the balls back on this spaniel!

When our 320 arrives in a few weeks we'll throw it on the dyno and see how it does. Hopefully we can make the same power as the 328. Our N20 Stage1 & Stage2 tuning are both compatible with the 320 though.

Thanks for the quick reply Terry! I am really looking forward to seeing what you get stock and tuned from your neutermobile

When you say "the same power as the 328" - I assume you mean factory... Eg you are hoping to get to ~240hp?

My secret wish was that the engines were identical and that it was simply a software neutering between the 320i and 328i... But it sounds like that's not the case and I am going to have to be happy (and I am, I swear!) with ~220-240hp.
