tires that will stick better and a 3" exhaust in lieu of the 2 1/2" one that i have now. i didnt realize that the back of turbo was 3" and my exising downpipe was only 2 1/2" or i would had done this when i decided to lose the muffler. oh well. i will get a test pipe with flanges for track night also. i think i have to buy a cat cause it may be illegal for muffler shop to install exhaust on car without one.

: You should LOSE the cats!! then run straight 110, ;-), at least when you're at the dragstrip..your MPH should go up even more, and the car will seriously be sounding mean. That's how all the other Turbos I rode in were, and they sounded just out of this world. From what I have heard, that is a great mod for Turbocharged M3's..CYA>PM3

: : : there something that 3-4 gallons of 110 to a 1/2 a tank of 93 would cause a problem?

: : Well, I am assuming that 110 octane is 'leaded' fuel, which does harm the catalytic, from what I have heard. Now, VP does offer up to 103 octane fuel, which you could run, because it's unleaded. To my knowledge, this is the highest unleaded octane available..

: : ,,, it obviously was cause the mph went up!!!

: : Oh, I am sure it gave more HP...

: : > so now, based on my estimation, im pushing 450 hp at flywheel. i'll check the computer formulas for mph to see.

: : That is way over the most HP I have ever heard of for stage I. Up until now I have heard of 380bhp capablities..something must be up with your car!;)CYA>PM3
