...just not the ponies you may want. While I have extracted 186hp from mine, this is the upper limit of the M20 without forced induction or Nitrous Oxide. No, these motors will never make the reliable horses of the S series motors.

without having to remove the motor, what basic "bolt on" mods can be done, and how much performance would one gain, is it really possible to make the 528e motor go like a m3 or m5?
