    US spec M3 cams. Not many about though.

    Also put an M3 3.0 LSD on it to increase the acceleration.

    As mentioned above that would cover most of the major mods.

    You can then start looking at smaller ones like-

    underdrive pulleys
    lightened flywheel
    viscous fan delete etc.

    No worries mate.

    Give me a shout when you're good & ready!!
    Infact give me a shout sooner - got mines away getting vanos seals done should be back next week when I've got time to pick her up and once run in again I'll give you a blast!!

    You can see how much difference cams/remap etc make.
    will probably give you a good gauge as to whether it's worth it or not??

    I'm just down the road from you.

    Bbtb, underdrive pulleys and weight loss will also help
