VAC Motorsports E46 M3 Club Racer - Silver Bullet II

Just wanted to share some pics of our silver E46 M3 - Silver Bullet II. I will try to get some pics of the undercarriage...it's pretty special. This car is powered by a 460hp VAC built, dry sump equipped 3.2.

ps. The original Silver Bullet was an E36 with similar engine config

Dang. I love the S54.

Would love to see/hear some fly-by videos on the racetrack of that car.

Hi Mike - can you pm me some details on what was done with the motor? I've got an '03 M3 track car that hasn't had much internal work done. So far I've added new rod bearings, standalone ecu conversion with epic software, ss stepped headers v2 and a csl type intake. At this point, I'm not happy with the hp it's making and so I've been considering doing more with the motor. Question is what could I reuse and what would have to be done to get this kind of output?

Thanks,
Barry

Wow..... amazing. My car is starting to look like your car (externally). I just need to get the CF roof now

In that PM to BarryC, could you forward that info to me? I'd like to know how to achieve power like that.

Also, where did you get those mirrors from? very nice

I want those cams! I'd imagine they are something like 304/298? Sounds mean... like it will eat you if you get close.

That short hose (black) that is sitting right above the coil packs, that would normally (I think) hook to the intake manifold. What is that designed to do? Since it is set up differently than the stock engine?

Also, are there any air/oil separators available for this car? To keep oil out of the intake?

Not sure if it's the same issues, but coming from a turbo car (STI), there are air/oil sep available to prevent oil from getting into the intake manifold.

------------------------------------------

I'd also like to know more about your cooling system. looks like the rad is lowered bit and maybe pushed forward for room? If it works for a race car, something simliar would be good for a street car (if feasible). Good cooling is... good cooling

No real need for it anymore now that the car has our dry sump kit - the oil pump is creating vacuum.

Nice, I'm interested! Link to the air/oil sep? or a custom piece?

I'm always on your site trying to find stuff that will go well with my car as s street driven vehicle.

I'd like to know how I could clean my engine bay up to look like your car...
