Up to an including MY 2000 - S52, 3.23 rear stock
MY 2001 and 2002 - S54, 3.15 rear stock

Both use the same tranny, which is the same one in the E36 M3

Gearing in the 5 and 6 speeds are the same other than the lack of 6th in the 5 speed.

Imagine an E46 M3 with 600 lbs of weight reduction, now your in the ball park...

There is a guy on Roadfly that turned a 12.30 @ 112.8 mph with a 60' time of 1.67. Uses a 5500 rpm launch.

No matter how fast you are, someone will always be faster.
Imagine what he could do in an S54 coupe!

mathews isn't far from stock.

software, pullies, 4.10, maybe an intake.

Edit: He was a professional dragster at one point, though. And I do know that Joel has invited him to drive his car.
