Because of this I will be setting up a dyno for Tuesday/Wednesday of next week. I'll have to wait until I get tracking info on the return from Bimmerworld. Since it's such late notice, we'll try and set something up later this summer.
For those demands you'd think he'd help with the tab! I'm in no rush to dyno, just thought it would be fun to participate so whenever works for me. I can't imagine how excited you are to see that car put down 350whp

yeah, that's part of the reason I went for it. Also, the call and text over wifi is a lifesaver at my house. Awesome feeling to use a cell phone in the basement. its actually way more clear than my house phone.

I really like how open the androids are versus the iphones. I absolutly hate iTunes... I'm intellegent enough to drag and drop onto an sd card. Id really rather the removable card too.

Iphones can work for some people, but they're totally not my style.......lol

I hate androids cause there's always a better one out next week. I get a android and I'll feel like I'm cheated cause I don't have the best. But with my I phone, all I need to know is that I have the 32gb 3GS. I don't have a computer to pair my phone with so anything else is totally worthless. If I had a nice computer I'd probably have an android or a web os. Then again the playstation phone looks fun too.

Super excited, I'm not holding my breath on the 350 number but if it were less than 330 I'd be very upset. Anywhere between 330-350 and I'd have a nasty NA M3. I've got another 200-300 lbs to lose to so that will make a huge difference as well.

F me in the A, cost me 85 bones to overnight the ECU to Bimmerworld. I'm scheduled for 5pm at Modified by KC for the dyno if anyone wants to come watch and lose some hearing.

James said he's done this exact setup before so he should be able to nail it the first time but damn I hope I don't have to pay another 85 bucks to ship it back.

Moon roof and track is around 80lbs
headliner and insulation is 8lbs
Carpet is 40lbs
Sound deadening is 45 lbs
A pillars are 2 lbs
B pillars are 2 lbs
C pillars are 2 lbs
Sunvisors are 4lbs
6lb battery will save me 10lbs
Center console is 6lbs
Everything AC related is around 20lbs
Heater core and floor ducts are 22lbs
Wheels are 8lbs lighter per wheel = 32lbs (which will be huge)

That's a total of 273lbs and I know I'm missing something. I'm gonna try and loose 15-20 as well LOL. That will put me at 2855 completely wet.


You should for sure come out to the dyno, bring that camera and dBa meeter of yours too.

No, full fluids including a full tank of gas. With me it would be around 3035.

600lbs less than a stock e46 M (with me as a driver), I'll take that.

Edit: I know a guy on Bimmerforums has a race car that weighs around 2650 wet. That would be sick.

They sell a composite dash that I will get eventually but it's not cheap. All the stuff I mentioned above is stuff I can remove which is free. Minus the moonroof, I will get the CF panel which is $350.

I found a CF driveshaft on M3forum, trying to research the manufacturer.

Why run a dash at all if you're gonna make it a track car with a weld in cage? Just have mounts on the cage foR the cluster.

I've never seen a race car without a dash................................I don't like that idea.

Edit: I'm not going composite dash until I get a Motec or similar system.
