More M Power

Update by Tim Suddard to the BMW M3 project car
Feb 24, 2005

After two trips to Active Autowerke in Miami Florida, we now have a little more power to go with our handling improvements on our Project M3.

Starting with a Turner Motorsports cold air intake, a chip upgrade, and a comparison test of five different exhaust systems, we took our 200 hp (at the wheels) M3 up to about 212 hp.

Next we dove into the fuel injection system, messed around some more with exhaust systems and did a few more tricks to boost power to about 225 hp. For full details on all that we did please pick up the June 2005 issue of GRM. The May 2005 issue will also have additional info on some more suspension mods that we made.
