And that is on the Modacar dyno which reads low. Expect other dynojets to show 340-350whp.

How reliable would this car be with that much more extra power? Im sure internal work on the engine won't be necessary yet, but what about the tranny? Would they hold up fine? 6MT or 6AT?
I don't expect their to be any issues at this point. Drivetrain or otherwise. I can't imagine BMW not overbuliding their transmission and engine. Especially on a car that makes 300lb-fts of torque at 1800rpm. No signs of clutch slippage yet either. But then again, I'm not dumping the clutch at every stoplight.
