I met some friends today and we decided to head voer to rogue Engineering in NJ to check out the M3 Touring Edition..do a search for it if you dont know what i am tlkaing about..Ben gave us a ride in it and holy shit it hauls ass..it is for sure the ultimate sleeper.. Strazz will post pics later i am sure.. We checked out RichP's ride which is ill as well and they , menaing the guys i went with, convinced me to get the rogue pullies installed..i was a bit hesitant at first but they were sitting right there and i couldnt resist the temptation with the pullie in my hand.. ben installed them pretty quickly and i took the ca our for a spin..at low rpms in 1-2-3 the difference istn noticible, but at the top end the power seems to stay for a bit longer then it did before.. for sure a worthwile mod..mixed with software and a new diff..i am sure it will be a blast to drive really soon!

yyou are on the right track but don't forget

you should have with the pullies a light weight flywheel to.
with the other perf. mod's you mention. the flywheel will put
more h/p to the back wheels from what you would loose with a regular flywheel....

Nope.. The car has M68's Mtech front and sides, maybe rear i dont remember m3 mirrors. All sysyems work in the car..EVERYTHING!..no lights all oem function..the mileage is right..even the DME has the tourings VIN correct..he is wating to find an m3 rear subframe, suspension, diff etc so that he can run m3 gearing..now it has a 3.46 which is still powerful as hell..it truly was a blst to be in!

I'll probably come up in the spring to get a SSK installed just to check out the place. There are no BMW shops nowhere in these parts.

How does the instrument cluster of the M3 work in the Touring? I remember a thread stating that it would work in coupes, but 4 doors would have a problem since the M3 cluster only has a display of 2 doors.
