Larry's been wiring non-stop! He's pretty anal when it comes to making everything really neat and clean.

I have TONS of pictures but haven't been able to go through everything. I'll get a good update for everyone soon!

Amazing work Reid/Larry! That fuel system looks amazing all put together. Question on the set up, where does the flex fuel sensor go before the fuel pumps or after the fuel pumps?

Tom does CCWs are SICK SICK SICK! But then again, I am bias!

SWEET! Thanks Reid!

haha I am biased towards Volks and CCWs as well buddy

Side note I ordered a new suspension setup through Dan at DER motorsport thanks to kenton for the hookup, replacing my pss9s with Tckline D/A's

Also Viral over at Active Autowerke is helping me order a set of Recaro sportster cs seats custom wrapped/dyed to match the rest of my Imola red leather

Also a Raven half cage was purchased.. Still have to order a set of 4 pt harness's (I dont think 5 pt is needed imo at least)

The custom fabricated 'Y" looks so nicely done. Why not use the many commercially available Y's in -10AN? They should flow just fine...and for a lot smaller cost. $33.99
http://www.jegs.com/i/Sniper-Motorsp...ductId=1712126

I am a big fan of the gold center wheels. Nice. But for really high HP applications I prefer 18 inch and even 17 inch for the rears. Are they 18's? What width is the rear tire? 295mm or 315mm? It looks huge. Its so hard fitting decent width rubber on non wide body E46's. Porsche and vette guys have it so much easier.

I see that big air filter. You simply have to run that size or larger to get good flow. But were you able to do it with out removing the AC compressor permanently?

18x9.5 front (275/35/18) and 18x12 rear (335/30/18) and they are toyo r888... the car is going to a body shop after SP is done for a slight widebody lol all the parts are sitting there waiting... It will be 1.5" wider than a stock m3 in rear and front oem m3 fenders with molded grills...Also I Asked for the AC to be removed for larger intake to be fit

I still am trying to do a pull on meth. The meth tank was empty so I got a gallon of meth today. I need to figure out how to purge it, looks easy in video however Tom is missing the jumper harness that HPF supplies so that you can purge it. I need a schematic to figure out how to do that without the harness. HPF is getting back to me tomorrow on that.
My shop sent my Steed Speed to who they think is the best port and flow guy in the area. Supposedly he was able to make huge improvements. I am waiting on actual flw bench numbers. see here:
http://www.e46fanatics.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=914550

So far nothing definitive. Its conjecture. But yiou said it yourself, it looks worth while to attempt. There is ample material to work with.

The flex fuel sensor generally goes in the return feed back to the tank if I'm not mistaken.

I love those CCW's.. I can't wait to see them mounted up!

Thats just awesome! Great idea. I am doing the same so I am biased. Not quite as extreme...315X17 on 11 inch rims and 265x18 on 9.5 inch rims. I will only have to doctor my rear quarter panels. I would rather do what you are doing but have just run out of $$ and time. Well done, sir!! I see your project as the best new build coming out., IMO. No holds barred. This is really exciting stuff. You are doing everhtung right!! SP is doing awesome work. OMG!

The exhaust mani is a huge bottle neck for your project. I am sure that SP will either cut, port and re weld your Steed or do a tubular. We went the cut and port route which has yet to be proven. Either way will see a happier, easier breathing motor. I have no doubts for magnificence in your project.

You and I are among the very very few who have not gone the full wide body look which is too extreme IMO. I cant wait to see your custom semi wide body. It will have a unique look that will retain much of the E46 heritage. I like that. My rear will bulge similar to the Porsche rear fender wells which is not a bad look I think. The AC Cobra bulges similarly.

LOL. I see you did custom Recaros. Me too. But i did custom Red jersey(breathable) and red alcantara trim on mine. I had to go for the Sport Topline XL because of my height and overall size (6'4" 240lbs). The topline are just a high end cruising seat really that work for what i need. Once you are strapped down in a five point it doesnt matter so much I dont have a pure racing seat. THe Recaros in Imola Leather have got to be sick. Hope you did perforated at least. I know approx what those are going to cost you. Big $$!

I would be very very surprised if you are not well North of 1000rwhp on this build. You really will have the ultimate street and strip E46 IMO.

when you say "molded grills" do you mean side GILL elimination?..for stelath purposes? It will look like a non M car from the side. I think you should put a 323 badge on it!!! No, seriously.
