My Ride: E46 M3 & E30 M3
Custom Single turbo kit for my Dakar Yellow E46 M3 Individual

I will be letting my friends fabricator have some fun with my e46 in a few weeks. AC Fabrication will be doing the work on the car.
My car is currently supercharged with an ESS kit.
I just dont like superchargers in general.

He will be doing a custom turbo kit, twin scroll exhaust manifold, downpipe, plenum, exhaust, etc. i will be aiming for 500-600whp on 91 + meth
Hes done many cars mostly in the 1200++ hp range so this is a piece of cake. Hes done all the VM top mount single turbo 335i kits so this will be nothing new.

I will be running a stock block , WPC treated rod bearings, heavy duty arp2000 bolts, and thats it for the engine side. The turbo will be a GTX3582R, twin scroll exhaust manifold, not sure on the sizing of the back housing yet. Probably will be a 1.0 ar.
Also for cooling i will have 2 big Spal fans and a custom radiator and oil cooler
For ecu i am not sure 100% yet but probably will be going with an AEM infinity, the PnP harness is already made and it supports rolling antilag, which i definitely want.

Dont know exactly which clutch to run yet. I want a clutch that can handle the power but also is easy to drive on the street. The driveability of my car needs to be easy, or else the build is just not worth it. I want my car to be comfortable to drive around on the daily. A clutch that is like an on and off switch that is too "grabby" will just not do. Any recommendations will be appreciated. I was looking at the DKG clutch kit that Max psi sells, if anyone is running a turbo setup with that clutch and can chime in that would be awesome.

Brakes are OEM ZCP rotors front and rear with porsche turbo calipers painted dakar yellow to match and stamped brembo
Suspension: at the moment Status gruppe coils (probably will be changing the setup , if anyone has any recommendations please chime in)

Wheels are Red TE37 18x9.5 +22 and 18x10.5 +22 ; tires are NT01 in the rear and NT555 in the front; 255/35/18 in the front and 275/35/18 in the rear(rear quarter panels are shaved)

Need some recommendations for a methanol kit. Please chime in with any suggestions if anyone is running a aquimist or aem kit, etc.

Will be asking turbojoe here in los angeles to tune my car.

nice, for clutch go with anything thats a single plate the twin disk will be a pain in the dick to drive in traffic and low speeds but sometimes you just have to comprise. best bet would be any south bend clutch depending on torque there are a good few clutches for sale now on M3 forums, btw any hof clutch south bend will refurbish and send you a new one for a small fee of like 300ish

Thanks for the response, i was thinking the same. I called the guys over at Max psi and they told me literally the complete opposite. He said that a twin disc is going to be easier to drive on the street in traffic and it is less grabby then the south bend clutch. And he said the south bend clutch is going to be more of a race style clutch which is like an on and off switch, so if the guys at max psi could chime in id greatly appreciate it. Thanks

I had the South Bend stage 5, which is a six puck un-sprung clutch carbon ceramic clutch. It was fine in stop and go traffic had to get use to it in the beginning. I have since changed to a SPEC twin disc with ceramic discs. Haven't driven the car yet so I don't have a comparison as of yet. But the SB was a good clutch. Pedal pressure was a little hard then stock not bad.

We have had great results with both Southbend single disc clutches and twin disk clutches(UUC, DKM, and Tilton). The singles have a more stock-like pedal travel, but they require more pedal effort. The twin discs have a short window for engagement, but they are smoother than a high torque capacity single disc. The twin discs will have a notable rattle from the gearbox, especially when the transmission fluid is warm. At some point a single disc clutch is simply not an option due to the torque your setup is making.
