Talking E46 M3 S65 swap

Going to make this quick, as I am preparing a huge article write up on it for the Roundel, the basics:Install being done at Technica Motorsports, limited edition of 25, price still pending as full scope of labor and parts not complete yet.
2009 M3 S65 motor with 6 speed transmission going into a 2002 M3 rolling chassis
1) removed S54 and sold it for an in store credit on labor hours
2) reinforced rear subframe(with Technica's kit) to take the extra power and replaced all diff and mount bushings with AKG and stock
3) Motec 150 ecu, custom wiring harness to work with factory ABS system, and cluster, harness done, tuning next month
4) custom motor mounts, power steering rack and pump brackets being made this week, along with some minor trimming of firewall and subframe for V8 fitment.
5) Challenge CSL roof with factory moonroof delete headliner installed
6) custom exhaust with 100 cell cats being made within the next few weeks
7)Technica rod bearings custom coated for higher RPM redline
I think that covers it for now, stay tuned keep you guys in the looprolling chassis.jpeg

Awesome. Subbed. How high are you guys going to try and rev out the S65? Doesn't it hit 8500ish now with tuning?
