NO..... Modded vs. Stock is NEVER a fair comparison.
And if you think so race a STI with $6500 in mods and tell me how fair that was to you.
You do not know what the US pricing is so leave that one alone.

E46 M3 - VF Enginnering - 520hp/340lbft - $11,000
That's not triple the cost and it's already an M3

You will get easy gains on the 335 by uping the boost but you will also hit a wall very quickly with those small turbos not to mention running out of breath in the higher RPM.
