i've driven a completely stock m3 with a lightweight flywheel and a clutch before. so i know what it does and how it feels. i don't believe that you can get a 1/2 sec off your 1/4 mile with any other combination of parts for $2000 on a obd2 m3.

$650 exhaust
$225 intake
$400 chip
$350 pulley
$200 misc expenses/taxes/shipping/labor
-------
1825

that's right where a flywheel and a clutch would be. and will probably, at best, net you a 1/2 sec drop in 1/4 mile times. but then you would burn out the clutch doing runs, if you're into drag racing.

if you want fast acceleration, better throttle response, and a stronger clutch to handle it, get the flywheel/clutch package.
