And not gonna be a debbie-downer, but I'm gonna call 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
Agreed.

The E46 was probably granny shifting when he should have been double clutching.
