You're mixing terms. A pop-off valve for a turbo has nothing to do with power delivery whatsoever. It's a mechanical backup device in case the wastegate fails to open.

Passing the sniffer test at the testing facility is a lot different than meeting emissions requirements for a given model year. The two are, at best, loosely correlated.

Correct, the Euro cams will not work on the US motor. The motors are completely different.

I agree that it was a combination of emissions and cost that gave us the US M3 motor.

Yeah, the trunk cutline looks just phenomenal on the side of the car there. WTF?!

Still, it blows away the 6-series in the looks department.

The first thing I would do is replace the shocks with some Konis. The stock shocks are absolute junk and don't last more than 30-35,000 miles. ...

Most of the popular E36 M3 exhausts perform about the same. No reason NOT to buy based on sound, weight, and cost.

And the Borla wins on weight, cost and sound hands down. :)

No way. Gotta be back calculated to the crank. Assuming 15% driveline loss, I think 260 at the wheels is .. fairly unbelievable unless the car has some serious work done to it.

I suppose the same applies to BMWs. If they spent another couple bucks on design their cars wouldn't need cooling system rebuilds every 60k miles. :tsk:
