    E46 330i Turbo - Street / Drag Race Project

    I'm starting a new thread, to mark the start of the next chapter of this project.

    The previous adventures: https://www.bimmerforums.com/forum/s...0-Turbo/page62

    The current state of the car:




    Below are some of the major changes to the scope of this project since it started in 2010:

    600hp Capable Engine -> 1200hp Capable engine
    Tuned DME - > Motec M1 Stand-alone
    58mm Turbo - > 76mm Turbo
    OEM Automatic Transmission - > GForce 5 speed Dog-box
    188mm Diff - > 210mm Diff
    Stock Brakes - > PFC
    Bilstien/H&R Suspension - > MCS

    It is a very different car.

    In 2010, when I started the project, the aim was to build a car capable of running 11.50 in the 1/4 Mile, and pickup groceries. While it took quite a few revisions in hardware to do this, I achieved this goal in September of 2017.

    The next goal is to run 8 seconds in the 1/4 mile, but there are no groceries involved.

    If so, I failed and I'm sorry.

    Looking forward to insanity and madness on a level well beyond my imagination.

    One thought; why use the E46 as 'canvas'? Is it just because you have one, or is there a deeper reason?
    Of course, it's one of the most beautiful cars ever made (opinions may vary), but for an all-in drag car, I'd think there were more suitable metal-frames-for-holding-together-performance-parts?

    Are you still going to use a BMW motor for 1200 hp?

    Yes.

    I don't know that it will be my current engine build, but I'm fairly certain it will be an M54.
