Thanks you all for the warm welcome!!!

johnnybayonne, I guess your son has good tast. But the best thing about that car is how easy it is to add power. Down pipes alone gives 20-30whp and wftlb and a chip 60-70hp and 100ftbl torque at the crank. Bt of course after you done that you want more, and then alot more again

gotKRAUT, Here is a link to my add 2000 Audi S4, Stage 3, 450hp

What do you guys think of a twin turbo LS1 in a Z3 Coupe? Looking at 600whp or so. With supporting brakes, that just have to become the best car ever!!

Beautiful Audi! LS1 in a Z3 may have front end weight issues, but it sure would fly in a straight line...

the only issue with the Z3M is that it runs an old archaic semi rear trailing arm rear suspension(exactly the same as my E30)...when making that much power you might want a better rear end...theres plenty of E36's with LS1s which are epically amazing cars with great power/weight distribution

Thanks for the info on the rear end, that is exactly the kind of stuff I'm trying to find out. Is there upgrades available?

I've read that the LS aluminum block is lighter then the BMW motor so the weight distribution should be inproved.

Welcome Caddy!

As far as the weight distribution with the lighter engine, the BMW is already 50/50, so you'd actually end up with a slightly heavier rear (which shouldn't be an issue, methinks).
