Because there are a few members here who tried pushing alot of power with their Step trannies and busted them. 335s have new transmissions that can handle the power, and also shift much faster than the ones they use for the e46. There's talk amongst the e90/e92 crowd about chipping the turbos to 400HP, but no has determined if the new tranny can handle that much.
