So you have more experience with them than Bav Auto?

Bavarian Autosports recommends no more than 50 hp, but I think it should be able to handle 75 hp. Anyone have experience with Nitrous systems in their 540s?


You should speak with a BMW mechanic before doing this. A friend of mine, despite warnings, did it and blew the motor on his car (a BMW 530). If you want to keep your car, this is the least desirable method of improving performance. Cheap horsepower often comes at the expense of mechanical reliability.
