    When you are working on the rear fenders....I would suggest building as much re-enforcement as you can into the rear subframe mounting points. I'm not talking about just the plates you weld in...but coming in from the top (Inside) and tying into a roll bar...or some other type of weld-in structure.

    Also, the front strut towers are known to "mushroom" under stress. TMS, and even BMW sell re-enforcement plates for this that can be welded in.

    I don't doubt that with the power you can make, this chassis is going to see some serious stress....
    Adam, I ll be getting a strong roll cage. Thank you very much for the good ideas. As this is a AWD E46 sedan, it comes with reinforced front tower plates.

    Mike, thanks a lot. This M3 AWD and my other M3s all have VAC parts in them. VAC oil pump, VAC main and rod bearings and VAC 3500 cc stroker crankshaft.

    So technically this isn't an M3 though correct? It's an e46 XI custom fitted with a stroked s54 TT.

    well, this is an E46 sedan with some E46 M3 parts, but all modified to endure added torque. I name it XM3. You may call it M2,5Click here to enlarge

    started E46 XM3 today.

    3500 cc S54 runs good.

    All Wheel Drive system is tested.

    AWD is activated if I want it to be active. Thanks God.

    Wow, very cool man. That AWD system is slick. You have really turned over a new leaf here. Congrats with your build and success thus far.

    this is pure awesome. addresses the one problem left with high HP turbo cars...traction! I'd love to see the 0-100/130 with the switchable AWD for the launch and turned off higher up.

    Wow your right thats going to be nutty ! traction of AWD down low and the better topend / lower parasitic losses up top .. What a build man this thing is going to be nuts ! Must have a great shop performing this work kudos to them as well

    Any projection for All wheel Horsepower / Rear wheel Horsepower?

    Thank you all.

    The Project is done in house, in my garage.

    RWHP or AWHP is not known yet. I ve made 997 whp on Dynamics (that is equal to 1180 on dyno jet) 4 years ago.

    During these 4 years we worked on this engine and improved on it. But dont know the power as
    the rear wishbones get bent after each dyno run, just 1 full run and the wishbones are bent.

    Power goal is something I stopped thinking of, I think/dream/pray to get 60-130 in 2.90 seconds Click here to enlarge

    Man...I would love to have the facilities you have at your disposal.

    So how is the transfer case/center diff controlled? Manual lever, or electronically through ECU?

    Adam, transfer case / center diff is controlled by Pectel Differential Controller.
    On the last video its driven by a switch, just to short test. We wanted to be sure if there are any noises or vibrations coming from the awd system, all in all its built at my garage and I am an ameteur.
    We made sure the awd worked fine, then it was time for pectel.
    A couple of hours later we were able to let pectel drive the awd.

    Nice!

    I'm guessing you have weeks of testing in front of you...should be pretty fun.

    For those not aware, you don't just build something like this and unleash it at full power. It takes a lot of testing to work out wheel slip targets and torque control. On the in-car camera runs I've seen of Mert's previous records, you can clearly hear the torque cut on the engine as wheel slip is occuring.

    Adam, yes it will take time till the awd systen settles.

    Boss, thank you very much for the nice words.
