Just made brakes upgrade: CSL rotors all around ,csl protection plates and hand brake ,bmw performance calipers in front and porsche 996 in rear. Also we changed output shafts to 3.0D because oem 2.8 cant handle the torque,but it wasnt easy because I wanted to left oem small and light trailing arms from 328. Had a big problem because of the alpina wheels, because of the alpina design and offset its not enough place for big calipers, so we made spacers 9mm in rear and 21 in front and to keep the current wheel base we machined front king pins 6mm deeper on front pins ,rear are as they are only hubs are from 330 machined to smaller bearing and we made them 10mm longer to center the wheel.

I will make few pics to see difference , offset ,inner diameter and distance between studs are diffirent. But its not a problem at all, main idea is that only cilinder wich is plug and play is m3 but its almost the same as on 328 and for sure its not enough for my caliper set up.

Yesterday had a bit free time, so we installed the clutch and made 3 safety brackets for shaft. Im wery satisfied with SPEC production, perfect feeling on pedal, works without any noise and main- you can drive as with organic clutch withou any hits.

Stock trans hold till 700hp , at the moment I have 495hp , now Im going to buy second HPFP set from Vargas and then we can make over 700hp. Stock fuel sistem with upgraded low pressure fuel pump and on E85 pulls only till 500hp , its dead end for it. Drive shaft is from 320d with 6 speed manual.
