I started this topic. How exactly am I derailing it? And really, a $3,000 oiling system in a spec class is not a serious solution.

*shrug*. As I said - what I see is at least $5k extra up front that adds not very much when no one else is allowed to have it. Honestly, the M54B30 isn't *that* powerful. The open diff is not that...

Yeah, I've read it. I don't agree. IMHO, the more adjustment on the car, the less focus on driving. I still don't see what a limited slip diff adds to competition, either. (And remember that I...

Talk to anyone who ran a 330 in GAC. Stock motors. TC Kline developed an oil pump that didn't fail, but that got discontinued LONG ago.

Welding and safety wire do nothing when the problem is that the shaft actually shears off. :) It's a problem specific to the M54B30 when raced.

The SE36 formula always looked terrible to me. But that's a matter of getting the formula wrong. SpecE30 guys don't seem to hate their suspensions.

Oil Pump Failure

OK, so next question: SpecE46 has settled on the 330. Unfortunately, the M54B30 has that rather expensive oil pump shearing problem in race cars. Will there be a solution offered?

Engine Swap Cars

So this is obviously self serving, but I have an E46 323 shell. Putting a 330 engine and brakes in are not a big deal, and it would be nice to not have to replace the car to run this class.

That...

Roughly speaking, anything pre-2002 will not work correctly. The antenna plug will no fit and there is no reverse adapter.

E46 M3: Anyone ever put a sub under the trunk floor?

It's not *much* space, but it looks like enough for a pancake sub and a *tight* box.

What amazes me is that the car has significant damage visible in the craptacular photos, yet most of the posters here don't seem to notice. This car is a POS.

None of those. They all decrease front travel too much with a stock positioned spring hat.
