E46 el ca-bimmer

debating what to do to my ride
NEED more HP
thinking of a nitrous system that I can keep bumping up and see how far the inline 6 can hold together.
plan is to bump it little by little and at the end of summer bump it enough to go ahead with a LS3 - 6 spd swap.
I made it to 2012 turkey run 949 miles 12 hours 10 minutes with current drivetrain
lookin to do it in 10 hours

How many parsecs does it take you to complete the Kessel run? I hear Han Solo does it in 12
