You will have more fun with lighter wheels, better and lighter brakes, better tires, do a full Akra exhaust and do a flash and call it a day.

Reduce unsprung weight and the car will be better at everything.

Again, just my thoughts.
I would have to agree with sparkyg on this one. The big reason on getting the M3 was a NA V8 engine being stuffed into a 3 series...of course MB and Audi have their respective versions too, but M3 with a NA V8...

I have a civic Si - DD, Vtec isnt the same after driving the M, so everytime I take the M3 to my ears, plus that V8 puts enough power that anything more would get me into trouble!

Kudos to the guys and gals who s/c or have a stoker kit, my personal preference is keeping engine stock, and minor performance upgrades as sparkyg as mentioned...most of all enjoy the car!
