Most Rear Wheel HP ? E30 vs E36. (archive)

[ Follow Ups ] [ E30 M3 Message Board ] [ Msg. Board FAQ ]

Posted by Rob on June 08, 2000 at 11:04:09:

What is the most rear wheel HP a 2.3L normally aspirated M3 can lay down? Is it possible to get close to 200RWHP with bolt-ons such as header,exhaust,cams,chip,etc?

I guess the real goal would be to make a 2.3L E30 M3 as fast as an E36 M3 in a straight line. The E36 has a power to weight ratio of ~13:1 and the E30 is ~15.5:1, although the E36 also wins in torque. The E30 would need to make about 235HP to meet my goal.
