Max HP from 116i F20 136hp

Post by TRWood » Sat Mar 17, 2018 4:29 pm

Hi all,

I'm looking for advice. I currently have a 1 series F20 116i M Sport and looking for more Power. I have a stage 1 remap already done to the car pushing about ~220hp.

My question is, if I was to try and extract more power from the N13 engine, what would need to be done i.e. Intercooler, spark plugs,? And how much the engine can safely handle? Would the power increase be worth the potential costs?

Or do I sell up, buy an e92 335i N54 and face any issues that may occur on the road to high hp/tq

Thank you for any replies

That’s a good gain. I would wonder what in the car cannot handle more torque/power...

Just too much torque, you can't just turn them up and expect reasonable reliability.

Hi Guys,

The OP stated he ragged it every day so that will not have helped.

Cheers.

Software only remap making increases such 50 percent plus is too much. You need to start upgrading the car to handle the extra stress you’re loading
