6MT here. I am pretty built already... DSS axles, twin disc clutch, Quaife LSD, etc. Shiv and I have very similarly built cars.

Nice! Are you doing any suspension upgrades as well, or is that already done? Are you doing to try the 1/4 mile run

Shiv was the 1st to hit 10's. Can you just skip 10's and be the 1st to hit 9's? Go big or go home!!!!!

Also, you might want to get a new diffuser.

I already have all of the M3 bits, Hitchkiss sway bars and X brace, TC Kline double adjustable dampers with swift 400/800 springs, and rouge rear arms. Basically ready to go. My car has more suspension upgrades than the Vishnu shop car, they just have the dope JRZ dampers.

I'm not gonna joke about 9's since some take it literally. But yes this as well as Steve's car will be running at Sacramento soon.

I saw Steve's car and Former boosted's. At today very nice glad we are all the first builds. Creaming car is just another level of show and shine loved it.

Hey Laguna Seca. That was the color of my first M3. Desi for life. You should. One hang out if your ever back in Cali!!!

AWESOME!

I love this and I love seeing everyone jump into the build!!!

How much is something like this going to cost...just for the parts? $6-7k?

Glad to hear it. Us real men need to stick together. Its a well known fact that automatics are for pansies and amputees

Sikh, for sure! My Aunt lives in Pleasanton, so I'm over there pretty often. Enjoy your single turbo, it's going to be siccckkk.

Me and Sean were talking about how nice the colors is. It's a big improvement over the old Gray. The car has a lot of flare with that color combo.

Who are you planning on going with when your tranny inevitably takes a dump?

(Not bashing as I'm in the same boat). I'm genuinely curious.

I have heard mixed things about Level 10. I'm not sure yet, we will cross that bridge when it comes.

Just don't go crazy with boost in the mid-range and you should be ok. You could create a linear boost profile - the Procede allows for full control of boost at every RPM.

Think of a ESS 6XX supercharged M3 powerband. RWTQ is limited to 350 lb ft but it will do a mid-6 second 60-130 all day long. The N54 powerband limits redline to ~ 7,000 so RWTQ would need to be over 400 to get you the same power numbers as with the M3's.

This isn't ideal, but will certainly provide longevity to the transmission. I run such a profile, but it's mainly for attaining better off-the-line traction results.

But back on topic. This single is going to scream. As fir the tranny you gave to pay to play if it gives in then you can all thank us we are helping Vishnu/FFtec innovate and build on a path that no one has traveled.
