Looking for suggestions for Power Mods...

I have a 2008 135i convertible. I'm looking to start modding it... My last car was a 2006 MINI Cooper S with 238whp... ($8k worth of mods...) This time money is an issue with the economy the way it is... So... Im looking for the most bang for the buck...



Open to any and all suggestions...

Thanks in advance...

Have already ordered a JB+ and a set of DCI Dual cone filter kit...

Open to any and all suggestions...

Best bang for the buck is the jb4. The jb+ is fun but nothing like the jb4. Other good bang for the buck mods are downpipes (pita to install) and methanol system.

Will assume you use to hang at NAM - what was your posting name there? My son and I had a MCS as well and made the jump to a EVOX and 135i.

I started w/ the JB+ (lots of fun), went to a JB3 (more fun) and made the jump to a JB4 (same amount of fun but more bells and whistles). Considering where you took your Mini, you need to jump to a JB4 or Procede.

Bump up your tune, add a drop in filter (keep the stock box), DPs are the next plus exhaust. You've reach the next level. Adding a P3cars boost gauge is a nice plus. The next level from here is Meth and FMIC. From here your researching bigger turbos.

no Jesus Head available.
