Your comparison between the Mustang and the Integra Type-R was right on. I just got myself an E30 M3 after owning a Type-R, and in some ways the power distribution feels similar (the power in the M3 comes on a bit quicker, but it doesn't have the slight VTEC kick the R had at ~6k RPM).
I've yet to be able to rev my M3 out very much, as it's running slightly rough, and I've been hesitant to push it until it's gone through a local mechanic (tomorrow -- I've been counting the *weeks*).
Anyway, as far as the sub 7 second 0-60 is concerned: that's what I'm after; the M is slightly slower than my R, but I'm pretty sure that's cureable without going too far. I have a Dinan chip and I am thinking about a new cam sprocket. I have a Supersprint going on tomorrow, since the stock exhaust was on it's last legs. What is necessary to bring the power up to somewhere close to maybe 212-220hp? I figure that will push the car into the high 6 second range. It's a '91 so it has the Evo intake setup.
Any tips would be appreciated. I'm over in Seattle so Strictly BMW is handling the car. They're more than competent, but the wait for an appointment is long.
