My Ride: 330tti/e46M3t
Maximum PSI Stage 2 e46 M3 burning E85/E70; First Impressions



I must share my first impressions of the Stage two E85/E70 Maximum PSI turbo kit. It's fast. Really fast.

I don't have the best tires on the car, but now need to find the best. For comparison, I have a turbo ti that I ran a 10.9 in. The e46 m3 feels more radical than my ti. I can't wait to take it to the 1/4 mile, but in the meantime, I'll just enjoy driving it around town.

Mike buttoned up my ti a few years ago and I have over 20k miles on it without a hick up. I have well over 100 passes at the 1/4 and beat on it every time it's out. I'm sure the e46m3 will be no different. Everything is so smooth: Start up, idle, ease of driving. If you're not into the throttle, you can't tell you're driving a beast. Keep your foot all the way in, and you can spin the tires through the first 3 gears. This will definitely take some getting used to in order drive it "fast".

I have a couple spots that I keep a baseline on all the cars I've driven over the years. One locations is a 1/2 mile long hill climb. The m3 surpassed the top speed of any other car by 10 MPH and I wasn't fully into it. This car takes you to an insane speed faster than you can imagine.

Clean machine, sweet set up. Do you run mostly on e10 or e85?

From now on, I'll only be running E70/E85. Currently the pump has E70. Summer time will likely bring a higher %.

Thanks guys. I'm in PA, outside of Philadelphia.

Yes, I purchased this in October from Arizona. I believe the for sale thread is still here.

Sorry for teasing with the e90 M3 dyno. He's the same dyno with my car on it:

So Bobby, this means you will be in Stage2 tune most of the time right?
If you were to add e10 to the tank could you simply switch to stage1 tune and be safe to run it hard or would you have drain all the e70 first?

If for some reason I had to go back to 93/e10, I just turn a key and the "sport" button shuts off and goes back to the lower boost setting and gasoline tune. Definitely want to completely drain the e70 out, yes. It's not a flex fuel car, sadly. It's okay though.. I'll only be running e70/e85. There is a port on the fuel line under the driver seat. Mike gave me an attachable hose that you can drain the rest of the tank from.

I fit some 285/35/R19 RE-71R tires on the rear and 245/40/R19's on the front with the new wheels. Had to roll the fenders a bit and put stock springs in the rear, but I'm very happy with the outcome.

I haven't put many miles on them yet. Dropping it off for an alignment on Tuesday. However, they seem better than the RE11s that were on there (which had almost no tread remaining).

A good friend of mine put those tires on his E46 m3 (275 square setup). We just got back from the Tail of the Dragon where he squared off against my FD, I dare say it has more grip now than the old Mazda . Amazing tires, but a little on the loud side.

Everything on this car is a little on the loud side. =) Trying to keep it looking stock.

Honestly though, I don't notice the tire noise. It all sounds like heaven.

I installed the twin disc Competition Clutch from Maximum PSI. So much better than the single disk I had in there. Easier on the knee, engagement is more smooth and it actually releases at the top of 3rd when I want it to!

I haven't had much luck with the 90+ degree temperatures at the drag strip. Best time so far is a 12.0 at 132 mph. I'm going to try some Mickey Thompson drag radials when the fall temperatures hit and see what happens.
