Your tire setup dramatically.
I am shooting for around 600whp with a T61 (T4 BB). I just purchased a Racelogic Traction Control system that should help out a lot.

So how much difference will the M3 rear end make? Do I need to get a certain offset wheel in the rear or any E46 sedan wheel? I would like a set of 17s or 18s. I do not want to camber in my wheels to get them to fit the rear, that defeats the purpose.

Sweturbo: which wheels did you go with? ANy pics of your setup? Stock rear fenders?

323tom: Can you tell me more about your setup and do you have pics? Did you do OEM M3 metal fenders in the rear or fiberglass?

Pic of 315 T1R vs 335 R888s. Had to do some major rolling and cutting of plastics to fit on rear of the 996t!
