lots of money, forced induction is pretty much the only way to go to achieve those numbers.

No real way to do it N/A. My buddy has a maxed out m52 with 224 rwhp. He's going the nitrous route.

Basically you need a turbo, supercharger, or nitrous. Those m52 are strogn engines though. A headgasket, studs, turbo and good tuning can put out 600 whp on race gas.

My plan is to go turbo or sc, but what kind of head gasket and studs should a guy get. also i would assume that my injectors, fuel pump, and fuel pressure regulator would also have to be upgraded. Im just not shure to what extent. My turbo knowledge is minimal so i also dont know what size of turbo to get. I wasnt shure were i could get some of these answers so i thought i would ask here. Would the gearsets and diff have to be upgraded aswell?

I am full of question's and need some answers, any help would be greatly appretiated.

Brandon

That turbo kit does nto come with tuning, which is a huge expense.

Yes the fuel pump, pressure regulator, and injectors would be upgraded. You can go with a Cometic headgasket. Different thicknesses would bring compression down to varyign degrees. ARP studs are great. You could get away with stock internals on your f/i setup as long as you maintian low boost (under 8.5psi). Make sure you take this into mind when finding a turbo. Some turbos would barely spit out anything at low boost so choose wisely.

what internals would you suggest if i wish to go over 8 psi? also what would be a good flowing turbo for 8psi but also couls be used for higher boost levels?

I'd say a thicker headgasket to lower compression and some stronger head studs. I'd recommend a t60-1 turbo.

Zuigers=Valves Frank Probably you need different valves to.

The M3 throttlebodys won't fit, remember
When using DTA you can easily make your own individual throttlebodys on the CNC, with invididual air-intakes, because the MAF-sensor is overruled.

An example of the capabilities of DTA is a 3L euro M3 from 286bhp to 335bhp, only with a balanced flightweel. B)
