    I am considering upgrading the S14 engine in my E3 M3 with an Alpha N system, 48 mm intakes and Evo 2 cams. Some have suggested changing to a 3.25 LSD. I would appreciate any advice from any with experience with this type of modification. Thanks

    Doing a diff gear change is the best bang for your buck I believe when modding a car. Just make sure you don't go to aggressive on the ratio or your causing RPM with be too high. The cams and intake will help with horse power but I thing you will enjoy the diff more.

    Also get some thoughts from those at s14.net, http://www.bimmers.com/m3/sig/ & http://www.sigfest.com/sigfest.php

    S14 engine mods can be a slippery slope - I've heard of club racers getting some maxed-out S14 engine builds ($10-15k/build) only to find that having pushed the engine performance envelope comes at the cost of reliability, have something fail catastrophically, spend as much money again, and have the motor blow again. Point being, yes, you can build an S14 to have as much power as DTM racers of yore, but they had the luxury of the factory popping in a new engine for every race if it was necessary, and the reliability factors may have been more of a race-long thing than expecting the same kind of running reliability of stock BMW engines, which aren't as heavily stressed as in racing form.
