The Stage 1 AA s/c kit for the E46 bumps power from 340 HP/270 TQ to 505 HP/365 TQ
, so even with a 15% drivetrain loss that's still 430 WHP/310 WTQ
. Yea, both turbo'd motors have more TQ, but unless there's meth involved I don't see this happening
The E46 was probably granny shifting when he should have been double clutching.
