Yes I do have a Manual S65.... However I want to try the N54 as I understand the N54 is one of the best engines to tune.. Im dragging some nice competition next month..
a Gallardo, 911 Turbo, Corvette Z06, Dodge Viper, Ferrari 360 and an Audi R8..

Unfortunately I dont think I can drag them with the M3 Stock.. However I can drag them with the 335i Tuned.. When it comes to Track I will think of the M3 Engine..

I have ordered the following for the 335i:-
Rob Beck Turbo Chargers
BMS JB3
Dinan Carbon Intake with Blow off valve
Wavetrac Limited Slip Differential
Bastuck Quad Exhaust
Riss Racing Oil Catch Can
M3 Control Arms, Rear Bars & Sub Frame Bushings
AR Catted Downpipes
Koni Suspension with H&R Race Springs
Brembo GT Brake System
Dinan Intercooler

Hopefully these upgrades will give me what I need... Got any recommendations !

love that extended red interior, what are you gonna do with it?(selling)?
The interior wasnt actually red ! it was black and not extended.. I dyed the leather to red and we professionally sprayed the lower dash red as well... The end result looked really nice and looked OEM.. Took it to the dealership and they actually thought it came like this....

Don't forget to add the Power, EDC and DSC buttons next to the gear lever...missing those buttons would tell everyone it's a fake M3.

and go with the M3 engine.

Wait, you actually think a tuned 335i is going to drag against purpose built supercars? That is some funny shit right there. Please post videos.

I'd put a blower on the M3 engine instead of going thru all of that....

It's amazing what you are doing with your car. Just my opinion with some of the upgrades bearing in mind that you're going to drag and therefore want to extract the most possible power, surely a catless set of down pipes would have been a much better choice than the catted ones. Also a full catback exhaust system rather than the Bastucks which just replaces the mufflers would have been a better option. However, there are many who say that the Bastuck's with changed downpipes and ,maybe as an option secondary cat delete, sounds great.

Additionally I think it is vital to ensure you get an oil cooler. 335i's in the US, I don't think, come with oil coolers. In the UK all 335i's have them, however, many who track and have high tunes get additional ones as the stock ones by itself are insufficient to keep the engine temps down, thus have 2. The N54 engine is notorious for getting hot quickly, especially in a tuned state around 400bhp and after a few WOT runs which can induce limp mode. With the upgraded turbo's and you wanting to achieve 500+ bhp, with the lack of sufficient oil coolers you may find yourself watching the drag races with the car in limp and needing to cool down rather than participating.

Just on a cosmetic upgrade, if you've gone the full whack with the m3 conversion, change the mirrors to the M3 as I think the standard e92 ones look out of place. Anyway good luck with everything though and please do post videos if you get a chance of the races as it will show people who don't really understand the n54 engine what it can actually achieve in a tuned state.

Tuned 335i vs Gallardo


Tuned 335i vs Porsche 997 GT

First one is some garbage street race, who cares.

In the second video the 335i has to be on race gas + meth. Impressive but nowhere near the "500-600hp" you think you are going to get out of the engine. But let that be a challenge
