I live my life one quarter mile at a time, and for those 23 or more seconds I'm free.
nice sig e36... yeah basically a manual trans would be faster because its lighter then the auto first and foremost... it can be slower, tho, if you dont know how to shift! port and polish the crap outta the head and i would suggest port match intake and exhaust. a cone and free the flow in your exhaust. those are the basic ones. now getting into the engine you can have a machine shop fit larger valves in the head and also possible overbore if you can find the pistons (which im sure you can yoink outta another bmw?) and stroke it..im all about using parts in cars that dont belong there..so dont take my advice unless you really wanna get involved! how about a m60 swap??? lol
