M3 performance questions

Hey guys new to this forum. Im looking at upgrading from my 325i to an M3. after I get an M3 I would like to add a turbo kit possibly. Just wondering how much hp the s65 v8 can handle to the wheels with out new interals. and also how strong the 7 speed double clutch trany is and if it would be a better idea to just go with the 6 speed manual. and also if anyone has done a turbo kit what did you use and what is a good mach for that engine?

No one makes a turbo kit for the s65 M3. Only superchargers. 650HP seems to be about the max without new internals and from what I understand the DCT handles that fine.
Try the search function on the forum for more info and specifics.

Well, you could say that. However, he will more than likely be doing it with more and more cars. A possibility of a "kit" might become a reality

I was just pointing out that a S65 has been turbo'd
