ZillaSpec E92 M3 N1 Build

Hello All,

welcome to my build journal.

I waited so long to do this...

Some background of myself. I am just another enthusiast like you all. I've been attending HPDE events and time attack events since 2013, started off in an Evo 9, and eventually moved my way into an AP1 S2000 and now my E92 M3.

I bought this car in 2019 not because I wanted it, but because, my friends bullied me. < true story, I got called out to buy it.

A year later, I started to enjoy this car and evidently had plans to Harrop supercharge it, but I ended up selling and scrapping that idea... as a used clean S65 block was for sale.. so I evidently ended up doing a VAC 4.4L stroker in my first year of ownership.

From then, it just became stagnant and boring... I met many good friends and, of course, you lot in the track subforum.

Inspired by these fine people below as well as receive guidance from some of the best people I know in the track sub-forum and discord.

berns - overall inspiration!
roastbeef - speed hole my bumper please
derbo - suspension help
911r - the bully


I placed an order for the following parts listed below on 7/21/2022

Brakes
  • Alcon CR6420 380 Front Racing Brake Kit
  • Carbotech XP12 Front Racing Brake Pads
  • Carbotech XP10 Racing Brake Pads
  • BimmerWorld Rear Stainless Brake Lines

Suspension / Subframe
  • BimmerWorld Solid Aluminum Subframe Mount Set
  • SPL Spherical Front Street Arm Conversion

Interior
  • Macht Schnell - Clubsport Seat Mount
  • Sparco - EVO QTR Series Competition Seat

Aero
  • Challenger Style PU Front Lip


Current Mod List

Engine
  • VAC 4.4L
  • IPE F1 Mid Section - Technically borrowing this from MyDadsM3
  • Eisennman Race Rear Section
  • Custom E85 Map and 91oct Map

Differential
  • Quaife ATB
  • 3.45FD

Suspension
  • Neomax 1W Adjustable
  • Swift Springs 12k/16k

Body / Aero
  • GTS Style Rear Wing
  • Arkym GT Front lip and Undertray (broken)
  • Vorsteiner Dry Carbon Trunk

Wheels
  • TE37SL 18x10.5 ET20 Squared

I hope to get some feedback from you all! and I am super stoke to get this moving finally.

if you buy the legit Arkym GT front lip with under tray, but it's a pretty penny.

although you can get the replica version for about the price of a GT4 style on eBay it should be called AK2

7/23/2022:

got the 07RS mounted on the TE37 SL, sadly due to inventory issues I couldn't run a square set of 285/35/18 so I staggered 265/35/18 up front and it looks pretty good, i might opt to just run 265/35/18 all around as it seems to stretch I as a 275/35/18 would.

def need to get some better pics of this setup, it wasn't my first choice, but it is growing on me fast.

I actually don't regret buying them as I most likely needed new wheels to clear the Alcons I ordered.

Ride height will be adjusted again, raising the front more as I'm getting the lip next week, and lowering the rear maybe up to 1/4 inch more.

everything arrived minus the front Carbotech XP12 brake pads, due to having to be cut, was notified it shipped and will arrive on 8/2/2022.

here are some pics of the regular CR6420 calipers.

more detailed pics of the rest of the items will be taken once i get closer to my install date of mid august.

The front lip didn't last too long, but that was to just check ride height clearance, so I'm okay with that $150 experiment.. and not breaking a more expensive CF front lip which I placed an order for.

also if it wasn't for that SD Bimmer meet I attended Saturday, it would be on still.. hehe

anyways scheduled an install for everything on Aug 10th.




RIP CH PU LIP 7-29-2022 to 8-2-2022
