    Alex you are the man of documenting. Great power NA. Enjoy it. Click here to enlarge
    Thanks man!! Haha, sometimes I get a bit carried away with words. Hopefully most people do enjoy the write up and pics!

    It sure is a blast to drive, something that no dyno graph could ever depict.

    From the detail of this kit and efforts EVOLVE put into it is amazing!!!

    Love the Setup bro...
    Evolve Automotive have ALWAYS been a pleasure to work with. A lot of great tuners to choose from these days and I'm always thankful that Evolve Automotive is patient with my crazy antics, haha.

    That's impressive! I'm looking for something reliable for my M3 and I am planning pretty much the same as you except I want to put on the obnoxious bimmerworld exhaust (w/ front resonator...I like my hearing!).

    One thing is I want to do it pull the redline down to 7500 RPMs for the sake of the rod bearings which I am going through now. I see your redline goes up to about 8250 now? How much am I losing out by cutting 750 RPMs? If its another kick in the ass...then I might chance it. If its just a little more power, and a little more pull...then I can live with 7500.

    Thanks!! If you're looking for reliable, then these "simple" bolt-ons and proper tuning is the way to go!

    The Bimmerworld Race Muffler is one very well designed piece. I have a few friends who have the full 3.5" on their track cars and you can definitely appreciate how these S54B32 just love to exhale! I really believe to some degree, my stock Section 2 and Muffler is hindering my top end, hence the plateau in the powercurve.

    I definitely can see your reasoning on not wanting to rev all the way up to 8200RPM for the sake of safety and security. Even on the street, I usually shift at the standard 8000RPM. I just like having that extra 200RPM just in case my reaction time is slow or to have that extra buffer room. My whole theory on the Rod Bearings is that ultimately, it is just going to become a regular "maintenance" item. I had my oil analysis done recently and I came out 100% clean. It's been nearly 75000-80000 miles since I had the recall done. During that time, there were many trips to 8000-8200RPM along with track days.

    Here's a graph comparing the 7500RPM and 8000RPM. On my car specifically, I am definitely not missing out on power. With the BW 3.5" and it's potential for top end power, I'd say the difference between 7500RPM and 8000RPM may be a bit more drastic.

    If you want headroom in the event of a money shift...wouldn't you want to build your head for 9k RPM? I would guess that you'd have to do some headwork. Port and polish, cams, valvetrain, and maybe even bore out the throttle bodies. I think if you can get 9k RPM safely with the Evolve airbox...that would be absolute heaven. Then throw on a 4.45 rear? Rocket ship.

    But we're talking about $15-$20k. And the big question is...will the engine hold up? Will the diff hold up? How much is there to gain in the head from porting to even make it worthwhile?
