Question Worth betting on?

Two local guys want to race me for $100 each. One has a 05 535i FBO and the other an 02 m3 turbo.

I would be cautious of both 535 is a little heavier, but FBO can mean a lot of things, the 02 m3 turbo can be sick fast depending on what stage and stock they are almost as fast as a 335 - from 40 might be faster as they have more top end than the 335 and with the turbo will most certainly kill you.

the 02 m3 probably has and HPF kit on it and more than likely will blow your doors off. and if the 535i is sprayin meth. he might have a better highway pull on you. go get e85 to be on the safe side

He did state that it has a 70mm turbo.

Most people don't do small builds with a turbo of that size.

I say run the 535i!

I agree. plus the weight of that 318, if i recall it's not heavy at all.

You'll beat the 535, especially if you blend in some E85 because of the power/weight advantage you'll have.

As for this 318 turbo, any idea what numbers it's putting down?? It could easily be a home made N52 (reinforced "built" motor w/ a snail slapped on) or a properly tuned & built super-sled?

Not another freaking "what would happen?" thread.

Just tell 'em you'll run for fun and see what happens.

Op is either a troll or has the mental capacity of a 10 year old.

70mm turbo ? he must have a sick setup lol, trust me go with the 535, I'm pretty sure he's running meth but go with E85 if you don't got meth inj.

Just race the 535, the 318 will embarrass you.
