Power to weight ratio applies ANY time you are accelerating....

If you're trying to maintain a constant speed, then it's less of an issue.

Outside of the potential for the input flange to be different, yeah, it's a straight swap.

The only issue is whether or not BMW used the 4 bolt flange, or the 6-bolt flange. These are easily replaced however, but you need to remove the diff to do so.

It's about $30 in parts (need a new crush sleeve and bearing) to swap them out.


All things considered, there is a well prepped RSX Type S which comes out to Dexter Days and the occasional lapping day at SMP, and it's pretty quick. He's generally turning mid to low 1:40s at Mosport....

Well I have been doing some research on dtm power and bimmerforums and a lot of 96+ 328 have done this mod. The differential is 4 bolt from the 96+ M3's the 95 and under had the 6 bolt. My car is a 4 bolt too. What is gonna be tough is to find the one that I want, which is the 3.38 diff from the 96+ auto M3's. Well it doesnt matter now, Im gonna get it next spring.

I would race one but only 0-100km/h, not any higher, I dont want a big ticket, but if we go far like up north in farm country, then I would go all out. I have always wanted to do something like that, have a maxbimmer race day or something where we go like up north (not too far) somewhere safe and have straight line races.
