That will be the next mod, 3bar map sensor, along with meth injection and we'll up the boost.
I just installed the RS Autosport 3bar in mine, really nice upgrade kit for way less than the cost of a GM 3bar. I'm also installing the Extra daughterboard from Glens Garage that has goodies like drivers for water/meth pump and high speed solenoid.

I'll check that out... thanks! MS is awesome.

And yes, that could have been me, but I wasn't the only one out there.

If you want to have a lot of fun, get the AEM 5 bar map and the Gizzmo MS-IBC boost controller. It goes up to 5 bar as well, and has 2 multi scramble settings + a remote button, so you can add boost for X amount of time with a touch of a button. It's pretty rad That way you're not wearing your party hat all the time, just when you want to.

Nice work... never thought you would still be modding the same car... Seems most on here have moved on to new projects. I've had four cars since my old 325.
Car looks good, the e30's still hold huge appeal to me.

Psssst...grasshoppa..... 5bar MAP sensor will lose you resolution like crazy, and the RS-Autosport 3bar and 4bar sensors are already programmed into Megatune, no need to mess around with voltage/pressure curves like I had to with the 3.5bar AEM sensor you're running.

You can get the RS Autosport sensors from Glens Garage or DIY Auto Tune, but Glens is the only place with the daughterboard for the water/meth stuff and so much more. DIY Auto Tune was great years ago when he built his own ECU's, but now he farms them out, and seeing their soldering makes my blood boil (I had to rebuild a fresh ECU from them for someone).

MS is very inexpensive, and if you've got the time to tinker with it then it's a very cost effective solution. There's plenty that I don't like about it after using it for 4 years, but the cost of upgrading to something like VEMS or Haltech would be better spent on a good turbo, in my opinion.

True true... in fact, I have 5 vehicles at the moment.

- 1967 Chevy Nova - Shaved Handles, sbc 377 w/ b&m 250 roots blower.
- 1975 BMW 2002 - Future track only car, currently gutted awaiting cage
- 1987 BWW e30 Turbo - this car
- 2008 dodge ram reg cab v8, shaved everything, 24s, lowered
- 1997 GMC Safari, work vehicle


I just have too much into the BMW, and I really wanted to finish it. I'm going re-spray it and do a custom leather interior at some point.
