Finally All Wheel Drive E46 M3 Sedan is finished and running. Thanks God.

Born as a 330ix turned into a E46 Sedan with a 3500 cc stroker S54 engine, revving 9200 rpm, twin turbo.....

transmission and transfercase and propeller shafts are all custom, not BMW items.

front diff has LSD. New discs installed, LSD oil filled.

rear diff has OS Giken LSD.

Will be on the road at the first week of may.

All Wheel drive system is controlled electronically. When I want its AWD, when I want AWD to be OFF, its RWD. These are adjusted via laptop.

4 different AWD settings can be chosen on the fly by a button on the steering Wheel.












Thanks God.

Thank you all, I am proud to be the owner of a E46 XI vehicle.

3.5L 9200RPM Turbo... Really curious to see the power you put down. Even N/A such a motor would be a beast
