Pat comes in for an HPF Built Motor w/ 6766 and Open Dump

About 3 years ago Pat came in for an HPF Stage 2 install and he's now back for some more power!! He's upgrading to the new 6766 while he his here along with the Open Dump option. Big surprise right?!?!
Just getting ready to break the car down now. Updates to follow Pat

My Ride: M3 HPF Stage 3
The front aero components and rear diffuser are amazing. I am sure the rear wing is a good match.

This may be one of the best sorted out track E46 M3's I have ever seen.

So, which is it Pat? Do you take this car out and thrash it on the track or not?

It would be shame NOT to. Is that Voltex rear diffuser from an Evo?...cut and modified for an M3?

I've seen John at his regular pace.. I'm not sure how one could work any faster than that.

My Ride: A car
Looking at some of some of the modifications it's far from a track car. I would say it's a show car that can be driven on the track, but wouldn't label it a "track car" at all. Not hating, just giving my opinion.

One thing that I wanted to comment on that is extremely dangerous is your passenger harness mounting. The harness guides are not meant to hold the actual shoulder belts, only as guides to prevent side to side movement. With the way you have the harness installed, in an accident the guides would shear off instantly and your passenger would fly forward into the windshield.

Is the harness meant to be anchored on the car body? ...like the rear floor or at a spot between the rear seat cushion and back? To what? A welded in anchor of some kind of NHRA spec? Or a bolt threaded into the frame?

I can see how the current anchor is very dangerous.

My Ride: HPF Stage 2.5 M3
Your car looks sick! Very aggressive. How is your traction with the stretched tires? I always went sideways when I was stretched, switched back to 10s in the rear with 275s and it's straight as an arrow.

Thanks man, Ya i don't call her a track car neither....like you said it can be driven on the track but far from being labeled so....

As far as the passenger harness, I am aware of the danger, that's why I don't allow a passenger with me unless I mount my Crow harnesses which are the longs ones that mount correctly.

Thanks man...... Traction with these wheels/tires are nonexistent haha. I didn't necessarily sway side to side going fast, just when i punch it, i spin.....And trust me i've pushed my car with these wheels on.....My TE time attacks which are 10.5 with +25 and 275/35 tires grip way better. These HREs are 20x12 with 275 and yes are my show wheels.

Is there some sort of NHRA specs for the anchor system? There must be.

You guys are correct. Drivers side is anchored on the harness bar, but end is bolted to the floor of the car

Passenger side harness was a last minute and I couldn't find long versions of the Takatas for a decent price that still had current certification tags. I had to settle for the short ones for now....I do have Crow harnesses that i do put on occasionally and are mounted to the floor and anchored on the bar (pass and driv side)

Thanks man, these are HREs 20x9.5 235/30 front, and 20x12 275/30 rear. can't disclose offset as that's an agreement between me and HRE for sponsorship. Rear fenders were aggressively pulled 1/4 for a mild widebody haha

My Volks are the standard 19x8.5 and 10.5, 245/35 and 275/35. Got a set of 305/30s waiting to be mounted for the rears
