Do the MAF and Injector mods work for the 325e engine?

Nope. The best thing for you to do is swap in a 325i motor.

Aren't they essentially the same engine?
Is the Turnermotorsports chip for the 325e worth the 200$?

No.
Not really. M20B25 swap makes more sense.

Jay,

there's a chip you can buy from a local Toronto tuner that totally transforms the eta.

or he can swap to a m20b25 motor and add a markD chip to make it even better.

True, but if you are on a limited budget and the eta motor is still in good shape, the gains from just the chip are very impressive.

do you think my 1989 325is's ECU would adjust to 19lb injectors and an m30 AFM without a markd chip? or would it run too rich, or not correctly?

Ok, I hope I haven't missed the answer already. I've got a '91, minimal modifications. Don't want to tackle the AFM yet, but do like the injector idea. I'm always after a little more power. dyno shows ~177bhp 5 months ago (with the conservative estimated drivetrain losses added back) I also get ~24mpg on e10 89octane.

I want more power, but I'd also like a little better fuel economy. I drive 75 miles a day to and from work (it's my daily driver) It amazes me that the i6 engines aren't better anyway....none of them are though from any maker. I'd thnk that one of the best designs for dynamic self balance would lend to better economy and power. . . . ok, i'm rambling, it's late here.

So, With little change besides clean, balanced, and matched injectors....will i likely see better economy along with the power. What else will need upgrading at the same time (fuel regulator/pump, etc)
