I respectfully disagree. The only thing holding back 450whp is the fuel pump.

Are you advertising without being a sponsor?

You can disagree but I have seen first hand what 370whp does to a e36 m3 drive shaft if the tires decide to hook up

I know Bruce and I previously worked for him on this forum under a different user name

Just pointing out that you mentioned other areas of concern, yet haven't backed them up.

It's not a matter of backing anything up it's more of a why would you run 450whp with shit stock brakes, stock open diff, stock drive shaft that will break, the life time fluid is no good and will break down in the tranny and diff when you start pushing the car, upgraded fuel pump is a given for the size of injectors you will need for 450whp

Happy?

Then get a fuel pump and make 450whp. I think you're the one with something to prove, so prove it!
