please find another board to troll. you are boring.

LOL! This is a crazy debate. To put it into perspective, my son's tuned civic would probably smoke all of us.

So is a supercharged M3 also a ticking time bomb?
Thanks for debating the obvious as we already have stated stock for stock the M3 would win. Please go back and reread the thread to as what the debate was about and you have just reinforced my debate by saying the tuned 335i would be the M3 as Sor said it wouldn't.
I never said anything about ticking. The reason I don't go on to E90post and talk about tuned 335's is because I drive an M3 and I don't really care about tuned 335's. To answer another question, I wouldn't supercharge an M3. A buddy of mine had a supercharged E46 M3 and things broke regularly (cooling, I'm pretty sure he broke his driveshaft or something related, etc). We've already had this "how tuning affects reliability/longevity." Do you really want to go back to that? There were about 10 people on that post tearing you a new one! You have been all over the place in your posts... and Sor never said NO tuned 335 could beat an M3. That's ridiculous. Like the last guy said, there are Honda Civic running in the 8's and 9's.

The moral of the story is that you are a shit-talker... and not a very good one. I am a shit-talker too, but at least I drive the right car for this board.

I read up to almost the third page, so forgive my laziness.

I had a question:
For a dd the 335i is nice because you will have a decent amount of torque down low, and with a m3 you need your revs slightly higher form what I gather. Now if you have an M3 don't you want to be revving high to hear the beautiful engine anyhow? (not that 3k is high, I'm not trying to say the 335i is better, don't jump on me please )

I just stepped into a 335i, and I'm totally happy with it... but if anyone offered a 335i driver a m3 for the same price we all know what would happen.

Both great cars, but the M3 is made to tear up a track AND be a dd, the 335 is designed to be a fun dd.

I maintain that I said nothing about "ticking"... It was a joke dude. As far as proof goes, I don't need it... I don't have a tuned turbo or supercharger on my car, and I really don't care what you do to your car. It's just common sense. But if you don't believe me, here is a VERY diplomatic answer to a common question that I just found on a supercharger manufacturer's site... took about 30 seconds...

From http://boostzilla.com/store/allzilla/faq/supercharger...

Will a supercharger shorten the life of my engine or drivetrain?
That is a very subjective question, as the manner in which an automobile is driven directly affects engine life. Assuming a properly tuned system, proper oil change and engine maintenance, and similar driving style, supercharging generally will not shorten the life of an engine, just as is the case with OEM turbocharging/supercharging systems (with proper cool down for turbochargers - a cool down period after driving is not necessary with supercharging). This is especially true of centrifugal supercharging, which generates boost in line with engine rpm, unlike roots and twin screw blowers, whose low rpm boost can place additional strain on the engine and drive train.

Superchargers will not increase transmission or clutch wear under normal driving. When racing, however, the additional torque provided by supercharging will place additional load on the entire driveline chain, especially when increased traction is present, such as with slicks. This impact is minimized when the boost increases with engine rpm, as is the case with centrifugal supercharging and turbocharging. Transmission/clutch life can be increased though the use of an aftermarket transmission cooler and learning to shift properly.
