Honestly unless you're launching the car on drag radials or slicks.. very unnecessary.

Yes. Sorting out the stumbling/stalling issues and then making a few changes.

R888's on 19's all around. Its difficult to know just how much traction I'm loosing with that setup but I'm sure its capable of letting go well up to 100+mph.

I turned the traction control off while in Vegas and had slicks on the car and was able to light them up with ease at 100+mph on the freeway.

But that said the R888's have held up pretty well on the street and to me are a great happy medium.

Turns out the stalling/stuttering issue was related to the ecu not being happy after the smg to 6 speed conversion. We sent it out to Technica to get reflashed and now the car drives perfectly.

While the car was up at Undercover, they also installed a new front euro bumper, anodized the intercooler, installed the Autosolutions 30% ssk, installed the AST 4100 suspension, Vorshlag camber plates, and Turner Sways, and switched out the BBS Chs for Apex 18"s. Plus, I decided to pull out the 2150ccs and run the 1100ccs. I will definitely post pictures and videos soon.

Thanks! Yes Technica in Atlanta. The flash wasn't cheap but supposedly adds a ton of features, ie permanent dyno mode and a bunch of other stuff I don't quite understand even though Garth has explained it to me numerous times. lol

Also, I will probably be listing the car for sale. Didn't quite realize how much my wife was against me buying another high hp m3. Now that I have the car literally 100% perfect she tells me. Awesome.

Yup, I figured as much

Bret and the whole Technica Motorsports Crew are T H E E BEST!

I know what you mean when the better half (wife) is unhappy with a purchase of this magnitude. i think my wife feels threatened cause i treat the car with more interest and affection than i do her.

be careful, there both replaceable ( in the physical sense ) but only one will forgive you when you make a mistake.

Good luck and have as much FUN in this M3 as humanly possible (video recording it all of course)

I thought the 2150's were quite liveable with some creative tuning..ie raise the static fuel pressure to help idle.'

What fuel do you normally feed the car now?

Garth felt he could make the same power with the car on the 1100s, and it would idle like stock. I run mainly e85, but from time to time would need pump as we have no e85 stations around here so it was an easy decision to make the switch.

It really ran that poorly on pump gas? Was it just idle, or were there other issues? Did you try the "raise the static fuel pressure" trick?

I guess none of that matters if you are happy with the power you make on 1100cc injectors. I think there are many that make great power with these. Did you end up losing much or anything on your E85 power curve with the 1100's?

I run 1100's and have made 890rwhp or so with them. So I'm sure he's fine on them. I will admit at 890rwhp they're pretty much maxing out the duty cycle.

LOL! I am sure you do, but I bet you would be surprised.
