Rear end never broke on me but not gonna chance anything at the track. Well i plan to run andys 8.8 but in the mean time gonna give the stock drivetrain all shes got!

So the plan consists of cryotreatment.
Driveshaft,cv axles, ring pinion fully disassembled off to cryotreatment

I love that you think a Single turbo E90 is going to run 9's with a 6MT. We have had an 800+WHP E90 fully prepped for the strip down the strip many times. The one time we would have prob ran a 10.6 or so, the car crossed the center line, and defaulted. Going to take a lot more than what you showed to get that car in the 9's, but it's a sick build regardless! Should run mid 10's consistently if the driver is any good.

Whats the point of having a build if you dont make goals?

On paper the car should do it with ease. #1 struggle is getting out the hole.i will have everything set up to do so. Youll just have to wait and see me do it. :grinning:

Looks like a cool build to me. 9s might be difficult but 5 second 60-130s should be a walk in the park. :)

This is the sad truth. The 6sp transmission has been proven to be strong and reliable many times now.....but quick is not its forte. But prove everyone wrong. Someone is bound to do it; hell, just through enough power at it or do something crazy like a 2.86 rear gear set to limit your shifts and the impact they have on ET.

Once they finally get rid of that pesky tq limit bog we should be able to hit that time. My problem is the bog when shifting 3rd-4th
