I have read enough posts from people that have done the turbos but ran into problems I decided not go this route. And really not a big fan of turbos-yes they are more efficent but they lack the soul and excitement of a hairy maxed out NA motor. That is the reason I traded my 335I for an M3. Also why I grabed a C63-the last the big NA motors from MB.
How much power is the stroked 3.7 L putting down at the wheels?

Pic of the new ride...thoughts to follow

Here is the first photo of the new ride...fresh from XPEL wrap of the whole front and rocker panels. Seriously thinking of adding the doors with wrap-it looks so good and no seams anywhere.
