a 95 740i with 20" rims and cut-off springs. Of course, your car is slower than a bone-stock 95 740i. Your larger rim's diameter increases the gearing ratio, resulting in slower accelaration. In addition, your cut-off springs, without the proper shocks, might have absorbed the momentum your car needs to accelarte. Installing Dinan chip and CAI won't do much to you. I'd advise you to buy the gearing set(differential gearing) that is used by 740i sport. That will make MUCH different for your purpose. Email me if you are interested, you know who I am.
