John, the Z4M coupe get the zhp 6-speed, different gearbox and clutch. Not to say they don't have the same holding power, but its not the Getrag from the M3.

Going to slap you because we've talked about this before, clutch/flywheel assembly is the same with a different spline count.

Regardless, doesn't change the fact that the e46 clutch holds more then "400hp" easily.

It does not and that's a fact. Why do you think AA has their own clutch? This was a huge topic 3 or 4 years ago on m3 forum, everyone's clutch was slipping after a few thousand miles of hard driving

Lets just let Mike figure out what clutch he needs. He does have a bit more experience than anyone in this thread on the topic of excessively powerful BMW's.

If it slips I'll upgrade the pp. So far it's holding nice in sunny Florida.

Who really cares about it anyways...if his oem clutch keeps failing over and over he'll learn the hard way. I know personally whenever I increase power over 20% than oem spec its smart to upgrade the clutch along with it...in addition it always depends on the driver and how they abuse the clutch...it is a wear item after all. Stop b!tching over who's clutch can do what anyways. I see no problem letting people use up the rest of the stock clutch life before an upgrade.

This looks like a solid option, and is in the right company. Is NikG tuning this?

I'm a HUGE fan of Mike as well and what he's done with his M3's at the 1/4 mile track, WR holder! Best of luck and success to you guys on this.

Any boost at all has it's negative effects when compared to an NA build. That is a fact. I am interested in what you say though. PM me so this thread can stay on topic. What kind of events were these and what cars was he on the track with? If it was just normal events "not a race" then it doesn't mean much. I have seen stock 330i's out drive AMG's. It's huge on driver skill, not just the car.

Most the people who beat on there hpf car barley post because threads go to sh1t.
I would like to do some track stuff. I'm a noob to that. So it would just be beginner stuff

Old highschool friends dad used to be BMW instructor. When I run into he always brings it up.

That being said, I look forward to more FI options.
Couldn't have said it better myself and for the 9k price, it should be grabbing EVERYONE'S attention!!!! The more options we have in the E46 community, the better of we all are.

Did I miss something? Where are people getting this 9k pricing point information from?

MaxPSI- when can we expect an official release of details/pricing etc?
