Let me just say this car is insane! I know jaycent will write his review in detail of the kit but from a passenger perspective theres nothing better than a turbo'd M3. We did a few highway pulls from 60-120/130 range and the car just kept going!! I had nothing but smiles on my face as did he. The car is louder than I thought and the turbo spools very nicely! You will definitely be noticed on the highway with one of these kits! He has their exhaust system which I think sounds the best out of all turbo M3's I have been in.

I have been a huge lurk on this forum about the different turbo kits and I think this one takes that cake being on the stock DME! Being from Maryland and the emission BS we have to deal with this is the kit to overcome that. I cannot wait until this winter when I send my car up there to get a Maximum PSI kit. See you guys at MPACT Maximum PSI.

-Jake
Guess I need to keep on the lookout for trouble next time I'm in Annapolis

Super Excited

MaxPSI fund starts today.

I wish you guys were going to add Meth that way we could get more power on pump gas

Any exhaust clips with the turbo kit?

My Ride: 03 M3 , 03 TT 330,

Why are the torque numbers so low? The TT stage 2 330 has more torque I believe. In just wondering because I picked up an 03 M3 yesterday.

The M3 makes more torque than the TT 330 above 5k RPM on pump fuel...then with better fuel the gap gets huge.

I've heard that the TT stg2 330 is more fun on the street though, as it makes more torque under 4k RPM than the M3. All a function of the smaller turbo and intake manifold....

Wouldn't you rather spend the "meth system" money on an E85 upgrade?

why not just run a flex fuel sensor so the car adjust for the change in octane from e85 to 93 or 91 oct fuel???

Very awesome, keep up the good work NickG!

Derek...even with my AEM V1 EMS I can switch my fuel maps when I swap from Ethanol to Gasoline...it's alot more reliable than Meth. The proper way with a flex fuel sensor is the best method obviously which I will be running next year as it doesn't really matter to me right now as E85 is limited in Canada.

The guys at MaxPSI have a good setup...except they need to replace Mike...I don't think he shifts fast enough

All jokes aside though good job guys.

These power numbers are definitely at the tipping point for an OEM clutch...
