If I had a S/C 3.2 under the hood of my car, I don't think I'd be flaunting it as much, but of course, to each his own.

Have you put the car on a dyno before? I'm curious as to how much power you're making.
whats wrong with showing pics of my car?

310 HP to the wheels, 290 torque at 8 psi. Tightened the belt, and now its at 10 psi, so HP is estimated at 340 to the wheels
Nothing ! :thumb:

Awesome car, Chuckie

I don't think he meant there is anything wrong with the pics, I think he meant he wouldn't advertise it with the license plate.

Very nice car BTW :thumb:

Nor with the badges. Sans those you've got a veritable wolf in sheeps clothing.

Ditto on the nice ride comments!

Very nice, though I would have probably kept it a sleeper as well. How fast does that thing get through the 1/4?

--SONET
oh, I see what he means. Yeah, I was debating on keeping it a sleeper, and putting a 318 badge on it, but the blower is a V1 (aka: LOUD) so its a dead giveaway.

No quarter mile times yet. Going to do some 1/8 mile runs thursday, and hopefully some 1/4 soon after that.
get some 316 diesel badges for it :angel:

Are those 17" Breyton Softlines on your car? Just curious...
The torque is pretty impressive! I don 't think the current M3 has as much. I'm also guessing that your car is a bit lighter too.
close, 18's. Not happy with them though, they bend easy and they're HEAVY!!! Dont notice the weight while driving, but I do notice it when taking them on and off.

someone once plotted a bunch of dyno curves all together on 1 graph of various cars. My car definitely makes more power and torque than the new E46, not just at redline, but throughout. On the other hand, the M3 has a higher redline than I do. It would be a fun race I think

Yeah, Breyton wheels are not known for being lightweight. Most of their wheels (Inspirations, Magics, Softlines) are pretty heavy, albeit pretty good looking. If you like that style, I would recommend SSR GT1s. Very lightweight, and similar styling. With all the power you're putting to the wheels, I wouldn't be surprised that you won't feel a difference. On the other hand, put those wheels on a 318 and I bet you will. :p

SSR GT3's are what I wanna get. Unfortunately, I dont have the money for that. I also dont see myself dumping much more money into this car. i mean, there's gotta be a point where you draw the line right? The car is 9 years old!!!
