A 335i is going to be less reliable on the track with its cooling issues. I know of more hardcore 328 track cars than 335 track cars.

I recently went to the Rolex Continental Tire Grand-Am Road Racing out in Leguna Seca and there are many different divisions that the 335 is not capable of entering it.

I'll just break it down for the people reading it for anyone that's interested

Street Tuner division - 4-6 cylinders, 170-240hp, tank capacity 16.9-17.9 gallons, top speed 135, 2,200lb-3,125lbs, tires width 8.7-10"

Grand Sport - 350-406HP, 19-20 gallons, 160 top speed, 2,900-3,300lbs, 8.7-10" tires

Grand Touring- engine = 3.6 flat 6-6.0L V8, Max RPM 8400, 400-450hp, top speed 180, weight 2,240-2,800lbs, tire width 9.4-11.5"

So depending on what division you want to race in, keep in mind that whatever the model of the 3 series, it was built for racing and BMW wants to cover every division.

Thanks for clarifying, winning a grand-am is no joke.

Still has to be fun as hell driving this puppy on the track.

I bet that thing wouldn't even run 12's in a quarter mile lol. Still cool to see a 328i race car though, 218 hp is just weak for a "race car" to me.

damn 218whp on a Mustang dyno for just a tune and 3-stage manifold.

So that means on a dyno jet, probably read aroung 225whp?

Awesome.

218hp was the baseline stock with just a drop in filter and exhaust. we are installing the 3 stage manifold today with AFE stage 2 intake and OEtuning custom dyno tune.
