With the mods you mentioned in the OP, I think you will have a slight advantage in the Upper RPM range where the M3 keeps pulling. I test drove a C63 sedan without LSD about 2 years ago, while it was fast, your still modded, and could have an advantage. While it is interesting others have mentioned that there is no replacement for displacement, you should have some weight advantage, and your modded. It could also be a drivers race, but please take it to the track!

Will that be enough to beat a C63?
How about adding a large bat to the list?

OP did not specify whether he's trying to beat a C63 from a dig or from a roll-on so I assumed from a stop (a la 1/4 mile). The C63 is very difficult to launch effectively from a stop. All that torque just makes the wheels spin, especially with the stock 255's; don't think that even the new C63's come with launch control either. Also, the C63's tranny is relatively slow to shift and if the driver uses manual mode, he'll most likely be less effective (best to leave in Sport mode and let the car do the shifting). On the M3 he'd be able to use launch control but will have to make sure that he shifts at the right time. The better driver will be able to launch his car more effectively.

If this helps give you an idea, I went against a 2010 P31 C63 and we were next to each other neither was able to pull away. Literally the mirrors where next to each other up to 130 and then we braked.
My car has:
MS stage II intake
MS UD Pulley
Gintani catless x-pipe
Innotech rear exhaust
OE ECU Tune (I think it's a bit more aggressive than Dinans)

Used S6, I think it was a 35 roll.
