So far, my observation is that the E30 M3 (as described above) is faster than a stock E92 M3 on any of the tracks I've been to (with me as the driver although I feel more comfortable pushing the E30 with the cage and safety gear), which includes the Glen. I don't have numbers to back up the Glen times in the E30 (GPS was not installed), but I am cross referencing from other drivers who told me they were turning 2:16 laps in other cars which were slower. But I suspect the gap does increase on tighter tracks such as NHMS.
