It would be interesting to see, ballpark of course, how much each over 600 whp M, has costs the owner. It might help me sell my bett half ...[wait]...nevermind. Bet it's over $20k mark once you factor in kit, exhaust, tune, etc.

This would be interesting! It's very possible to get +600whp for under $20k.

Kit and tune should go hand-in-hand.

I'm assuming you mean sub-7 lol (sub 6 is )

Bolt on E85 gtr's like the ones that walked him by buslengths run 6.8-7.2 60-130's. This M3 with all things aligned would be lucky to see around 7.7 imho. Looking forward to seeing the results

On a more important note, why was there no boost log included? From my experience with these cars you needed at least 8.5-9psi to hit 600rwhp ESPECIALLY in 80 degrees F and high humidity.

I'm about ready to get a blower...

I've tried to resist but it's not working!!

Congrats to those in the 600whp club..

On a side note.. are any of them early 2008 cars? The one thing that bugs the hell out of me are these potential bearing issues..

LOL! Just pull the trigger all ready!

Mines an early build 08 and have had no issues so far. My car has 22k miles on it and about 2k hard track miles on it/2k on the SC so far.

You are making this harder for me!

Can you please share the build month of your car? Mine is 12/07

I bought the car brand new the first week they hit the dealerships in 2008. I love my baby and want the best for her!
