Drop in air filter, full catless exhaust, pulley and software, that's all you can pretty much do.

Full exhaust (HFC or catless), pulley, tune, drop in filter. IND can help you with all of the above.

Nobody believes you.

By the way TMR, do you make the most WHP from a NA (non-stroker) M3?

I'm curious if anyone else was able to make over 400 with a tune, pulleys, exhaust, intake.

Some others have made a bit more full bolt on. I had a pulley and was catless, but had to sell to pay for my grandmothers funeral. When I get back on my feet, I'll do a pulley, air filter and custom xpipe catless exhaust.

But like you said, no one listens. 400whp with just catback and proceed when others need full bolt on and barely make 400.

Pretty much sums it up, we've done this exat setup in the past with Akrapovic.

Would like to see the E-Tronic exhaust in person sometime soon.
