    Damn, you are going all out. Seriously, sweet ride. I have seen some great things done with the upgraded SSP turbochargers.

    It is going to be a beast when you are done! I mean it is a beast stock, but it will be a hairy beast now.

    if you're asking my opinion, hell yes you should have. for about the same money you spent on your gintani, you could have had 700+awhp in a gt-r.

    i've never been in a better car for the sizable weight. unfortunately, the gt-r is in a different world than the m3. you can't give an e92 m3 awd and it won't ever run 25+psi on a stock motor.

    No doubt you can't give it AWD, just like you can't give the GTR RWD drivetrain losses or the M3's weight.

    The M3 can't run 25psi but it does not need to in order to beat a GTR running more boost since it is more efficient per pound of boost. If you want to run a lot of boost, you have to build the motor, so, higher cost of course.

    This isn't really a GTR vs. M3 debate but the GTR is a great car that is far more easily accessible to access performance on than an M3. I thought about the GTR, but I would probably end up in an HPF E46 M3 before I would a GTR. I'm just a BMW kind of guy.

    You will see supercharged M3's with built motors (lowered compression) from ******* running about 28psi.
    Hold tight, more information will be released eventually.

    Honestly, they already exist. Secondly, how much power are you expecting to make? Even on stock internals the SC M3 is stronger than 99% of GTR's.

    Cost is a good point, built motor will run you around 15k.

    Looking forward to the numbers with the upgraded turbos, you will be at what, ~600 whp?

    Damn that looks great!

    I have to admit, there is a certain appeal to a forced induction car straight from the factory.
