common mods/$$

gonna be selling up my E30 M3 soon and thinking about the next car.
not sure if i wanna go back to another E46 M3 as i loved that car or maybe try 135 or 335.

can anyone briefly tell me the power mods and rough power increase and $$ that are commonly done to these cars? im guessing same mods apply to both cars as they share same engine yeah?

or maybe point me to a thread that has this info
thanks all!

JB4 $479 = 50kw
BMS 3" downpipes $329 = 15kw
VSRF 7" FMIC $450= 10kw
BMS DCI $95 = 5-10kw

All above power figures are an approximate crank power return. Not bad for a little over a $1k investment. As for wheel power expect anywhere from 260-270wkw. Just make sure if you do get a 135 or 335 it has the N54 motor with the twin snails.

Not an issue. The N54 is significantly over engineered. Most of us run 270kwatw+ (about 320kw at the fly) as dailies.

Edwins prices are little optimistic as they don't include postage or install...

Do the 3" BMS DPs fit??

That's correct Stu. Prices are for products only.
All parts are bolt on except a little trimming for the FMIC but most people can install all the parts except dp's (estimate $400 for install).

Regarding the BMS dp's we should know in a few days once a UK member installs them on his RHD.

i miss my E46 M3 so am thinking either going back to that or maybe 135i....

thanks for the replies guys. from reading mrBlonde's thread, seems like $2500 will get you decent gains and a fun maching.

whats the deal with diffs? i know they arent LSD's, do they cope fine with decent power increase?

Stock diff is fine unless you really are making the most out of the car on track days or driving 10/10th's on the back roads. As long as you have some decent tyres you don't 'need' an LSD.
