very good ideas. ati damper will help with smoothness at the top of the power band so maybe some aggressive cams and a 7k redline and you will pick up some nice power fursure

My Ride: 2003 ZHP 6MT
The OP's dyno results look good to me. My stock 2003 ZHP put down only 190 RWHP (SAE corrected) on two different DynoJet dynos. My hope is that with intake, tune and pulleys I could get to about 205 RWHP (SAE corrected, same dynos). I'm too wimpy to do headers, but I might consider a cat-back exhaust someday if I thought that would add another 5 RWHP. Right now I'm trying to improve the driver and lateral grip.

Lol you obviously know nothing. There are plenty of races and threads where a bolt on and tuned 330 has pulled an M3 by a car length or two until about 120, and the M3 was smg. I've also seen a e46M ZCP give an e92M a run for its money. Stock vs stock. I'll find the videos and post them for you

No but I think mine is fast enough to walk on my old smg m3 coupe up to 90+ mph many times over. No fluke there.

Thank you! Once again Steven has been proven wrong. Lol He knows nothing about how a race works. HP means much less than gearing, weight, etc. This is the 2nd thread I've participated in recently where he swears everyone is wrong and gets the truth thrown in his face, I love it. Lol His 330 must be dog slow or he's a terrible driver. I'm sure both.

Maybe someone should post your plenty of fish profile again of you showing off your abs or ribs or whatever they are mini stud lol you need to remember you have a lot less experience than most people in this thread that aren't 19 years old. I'm around cars 50 hours a week or more. Also, I never said my car was as fast senoco330ci's did I? All I said was I've given an M3 a run for his money. You blow things out of context. I'm not trying to start an all out brawl but you have seen the results and been proven wrong. I don't have a problem with you other than you filling this thread and forum with false information everyday that you pull from nowhere and with no experience.

yes i stand corrected on the 330 vs. smg m3 but 99% of our cars are not stripped 350 pounds and have cams headers long tube intake pulleys tune damper and everything else from heavens basket so its hard to think you were giving the m3 that much of a race.. i will have to race my friends m3 vert smg this weekend to see if all this hype is true

What does your car have done to it? He has the things that add 3whp a piece or less done over my car and he pulls an M3 so it makes since if I have 10-12whp less and stay even with an M3, understand? If your car is stock your only chance is that he is heavier because it's a vert.

I only have a 3.46 diff and a magnaflow cat-back as far as performance but we both know there's no gain in power but I'm sure the 3.46 will give me some help.. I'll make a video and post back
