It always drives me nuts when this subject pops up and you get a whole bunch of people just saying to go with the m3. Sometimes its more fun to build the slower cars to be sleepers. OP just do plenty of research and do what you want to do.

I dont think the OP asked which platform would be the most fun to build, which would make the best sleeper, etc.

He asked which would make the most power....and that question has a generally accepted answer, and that is the M3.

To answer your question of "Best": 320D as it will cost you $0 as it already has a turbo
To answer your question of "most power"?: M3 obviously

Yes. I pull past 15psi regularly. Another guy made over 500hp at 22psi doing the same thing. Obviously wear increases with conjunction with power and it won't last 200k like stock but my motor has 130k and still works great
