you cant get the power of a Euro M in your 95. The Euro spec is different(VANOS). Unless you do an engine swap the best you can do with a '95 M is around 275-280HP or so I've been told. Thats without having to open up the motor. If you decide to do cams or a SuperCharger then you can top 300HP. I think the Euro engine makes either 290 or 320 HP. If you find a way or someone tells you different #'s post it up cus I'd be interested too. I have a '95 M as well.

yes, eurospec engines are double vanos (93-99).
93-95 3.0l blocks has bosch and two chips. 96-99
has EWSII, which is a pita to mess around with.
also 96+ has traction control, 93-95 didn't.

btw, ps is hp in europe/japan. here in the us
we use hp, the differnce is .98601. so u'll be
looking at 282hp or 317hp.

on a us motor, cam (chip to match it),u 'll also
want to do intake, exhaust (why stop here?). u'll
be looking at 330hp.

a s/c can get u from 340 to 400. how much $$$ u
spend will get u more.
