as far we scuttlebutt goes, they tried 3.4 litres, but they settled for 3.24 or something because of the difficulty of the tolerances between cylinder sleeves and cylinders and etc.
anyway, in motortrend, where they compared the m3, z06, and 911 on a track with their test writers, they wringed out 4.7seconds to 60mph, 13.3 to the quarter mile. forgot the trap speed, sorry. and it still weighs 3410 pounds! reported a lot more understeer than they expected even with DSC off.
but, anyway, those are outrageous acceleration numbers and just bodes superwell for the m coupe/m roadsters.
