imagine current 1m (suspension, body, chassis, etc) w/ e30 m3 engine slapped on with a turbo... excited : ) Newer and tweaked of course. If BMW was able squeeze out 200 hp out of N/A 4 banger in 1990. I dont think we should be worried about BMW's ability squeeze out ~300 hp out of turbo 4 banger in 2013
I had a 425/411 to the wheel evo. It was quick as hell. Might be worried about top end though.
