The 620 crank figures are with stock exhaust (restrictive cats).

Swapping the stock exhaust would definitely yield higher results. For example, the Akrapovic systems utilize 100cpsi cats.

Check out Matt's podcast, http://www.thesmokingtire.com/2012/t...nny-lieberman/

This week has a good discussion on the M3 from the video. Their podcast are a great way to pass a long commute to work. Very knowledgable, true car junkies like us - and its in a light hearted format that is unique from anything else out there.

You know I can make that happen.

We have another VF620 install happening next week if you would like to see an install in action.

Just installed a set of GC Camber plates on this badboy yesterday, coming back for AP Racing BBK next week.

Look for this M3 on the track again shortly.

Recently saw this "Drive" channel on youtube because Chris Harris started doing videos for them and then stumbled across this one too. Matt Farah seems to really like the M3. His review on the standard car for the smoking tire was cool and he has awesome sunnies.

The car featured in this vid looks awesome and drives loud and fast!
Awesome work!!

I always thought the two air ducts in the front bumper were for the brakes, until I found these diagrams.
