No, the ratios are the same, and the ratios are practically identical to the Getrag ratios in the 318/320/325.

I believe the output flange is larger diameter because the M3 has a larger flexdisk/guibo.

You dont need to many mods at all to drift. Front strut bar helps. Put full psi in rear, 5 less in the front. You dont need turbos and stuff for all this... You just need to be a skilled driver. Practice in the rain...

Also you can get camber adjustment plates for fron suspension... Tune them so when you are looking at the car head on, the wheels look like they are tilted in... This helps rotate the wheels in cornering. It puts all traction flat on ground. This will help you car over steer... which will lead to drifting. But man, dont drift toooo much cause its lame unless your good.

Or do what i did and go to the local BMW dealer... and ask if they have any old e30's on the lot. I picked one up for 200$.... FUN DRIFT CAR!!
