Fact is the op can do better than an 11 second e46 HPF m3 for the money it costs to build it. There's obviously no 335 built yet to compete with your 1100 hp, but I bet there's one very close.
No there is not 1 close. I did not know all that matters in the BMW community are 1/4 mile times now. All because a few 335's are really trying hard at the 1/3 mile track doesn't mean they are better or faster. They are doing it right though, definitely trying their hardest. Putting nitrous, big tires etc...

U won't need anywhere near 1100hp to run sub 11s I guarantee that. 0-200 may be a different story, but again your spinning it your way with the huge turbo w/ tune setup for top end performance.
Are you under a rock? Do you not follow what the S54 has done? And how similar it is to a 2JZ except that the S54 is a much better flowing motor.

Just for your reference, i ran a 11.9 1/4 mile time 5 years ago with my M3 at a very bad track. I was making alittle over 500whp and had a horrible 60 foot time.

Hmm and you're not spinning it your way?

I'm sure the op has plenty to ponder, just go research both cars discussed and others if he's serious about building a fast car but doesn't want to spend $ like it's growing on trees.
Actually it was nothing until the silly baseless comment you made about the 335 being an HPF M3 killer. Then you discredited everything except for 1/4 mile times for the 335. Honestly this sounds like the old excuse Audi's and Evo's use. Where they only race 0-100 because they dont make enough power. (And yes im aware some Evo's make big power)
