    M3 Driver: What's under the hood of that thing?

    Me: 2.3 Turbo.

    M3 Driver: Damn man, what kind of power is it making?

    Me: I dunno, it's rated 263 HP at the crank.

    M3 Driver: I gotta get a new car, I can't handle this. I just put $6000 into the motor at Dinan.

    Me: It still goes pretty good man!

    M3 Driver: Yeah, it's ok, 278 HP at the wheels.

    Me: That's not bad.

    Then the light turned green and we carried on our seperate ways. All this after I beat him by about half a car from a 5mph roll to somewhere in mid 4th, where he launched the car and I went easy in first because of a bumpy area in the road.

    CLIFFS: I beat M3 with MS3.

    Mazda Speed 3 is rated at 263 at the crank? I always figured it'd be like 200-215 or something like that.

    I'm pretty sure he means an E36 which would be the correct outcome.

    Have you seen what the MS3's have been putting down stock? And, have you seen the gains people have gotten with a simple cold air intake?
