    In the time Sticky's car has been being built I went from NA to Weistec 2.3L stage 1, then stage 1 plus with heads, then I was the test/development mule for their stage 3 plus forged internals, 3.0L blower and trans upgrade and cooling mods. Ordered another Black Series, AMG built it and shipped it over, I enjoyed it for 4 months and now it too is running a Weistec Stage 3. I am now ordering a SLS BS which at this rate is going will be here and modded before Sticky gets his car gets back.

    We were having this very same discussion here a year ago before the Shift Sector event and he was "trying to make that event" as well, he said "it was gonna be close". I am going to go out on a limb and say my SLS BS hits shore before his M3 hits the track.

    I was also able to mod my e93, run it, wound up crashing it, sat for a solid year trying to figure out what I was going to get, then decided on the cts-v, bought it, enjoyed it stock for a few months, had it down installed all the stuff with the whipple, had EVERYTHING break on me and not all at once, fixed every issue, had it running and made it to the end of the season, decided to pull the motor, build it, and now the motor is just about done and im also betting my V will be up running and hitting the track before the M3 does as well....

    ^those last two posts really put this into perspective. I wish Sticky would just be honest with what the hold up is at this point. I honestly would not be surprised if both members' claims are true. According to sticky, it was nearly done but he wanted to add something else right? And now that is what's taking so long?

    never understood what all the secrecy was about....this should be a build for everyone to see just like wisetec did since its a first of its kind

    Honestly, if all you have to say is "OMG so long" go talk somewhere else.

    If you want to talk about building a DCT and an S65, do it here.

    You guys have no clue.

    Completely honest, I wish you would stop asking stupid questions and wish people would do something more constructive than remind me of a timetable I am more than aware of.

    It's called denial from Sticky's point of view and it's call out of sight out of mind from Gintani's point of veiw. Gintani just keeps turning out projects for other people....including a build for a new F30 M5 which was likely nothing more than a $#@!ing blueprint sitting on some computer screen in the R & D department at BMW when Sticky started his build.

    What I really want to know is how much money did Sticky pay for this build? Believe me, we have all done builds that do not go as planned, lord knows I have lost my patience with a couple tuners over the years but in the end they pull it together and deliver.

    Bro, we feel for you man, sure there is a little ball busting going on but i sincerly feel bad for you becuase I know how much you want this and how badly you want to go out and run your car. Maybe you are too nice, maybe you need to grow a spine and walk in their and quit playing games and demand some REAL answers and a REAL $#@!ing complition date.

    It's really unfortunate this build is taking so long cause it would really help move the E9x M3 forward (specifically the upgraded DCT & larger blower), but it's not gonna matter anymore if by the time Sticky gets his car back that the N54s are putting down better performance with the VTT Stage 3s or (hopefully) a problem free Single Turbo.

    Not looking to take digs at anyone, but this thread is going to be 3 years old in a little over a month. I don't know who's holding up the project, but I really hope it's worth it & that no more problems come up once the car starts running.

    Not gonnna happen. Look at what the S85 kit from Gintani put down on a dynojet. Now wait until you see what mine does.

    Everything is figured out, it's just final stages now.

    Armchair quarterbacking???? Sticky, it's been over three years now, people are gonna ask questions and those of us with even an ounce of brains can put 2 and 2 together and read the writing on the wall. Last year your excuse was DCT this and DCT that, well the trans and clutch part of the build has been complete for well over a year, that excuse does not hold water anymore, what is Gintani's excuse for the past 14 months they have had the car all to themselves? This isn't my first rodeo, I have been having cars modded and built for 25 years and NEVER have I hear of a 3 plus year build with the exception of guys doing it on a budget that can only afford to do bits and pieces at a time and I know for a fact that is not the case with your build.

    I've been waiting to see what this is capable since I joined this forum over the summer, so hopefully we find out soon. IMO, if this isn't completed by the time the F3x M3/M4 is released/start taking orders, the project was a failure. I understand that the E9x M3 will still be a huge platform & usually most cars see their aftermarket developments after production ends (lower initial investment with purchasing the car), but at that point you're closer to 4 years for this project.

    Like I said, I really hope so -- Think it was 1 of my 1st few posts in this thread, cannot wait to see something blow up ESS' VT3, and it'd only be so much sweeter if it came from Gintani after all the $#@! they've had to deal with over on M3Post

    I know how long it's been. All I have to say is just wait and let me enjoy my car.

    You're entitled to your opinion but the S54 took quite a while to get turbocharging down and there have been advancements on the S50/M50 since the E46 debuted. So, this is kind of an absurd statement and I completely disagree.

    Nobody has taken the M3 to this level. NOBODY. Appreciate.

    Because it's a completely different platform. All naturally aspirated cars are not created equal and it isn't the same tranny so please take discussion for that platform into the appropriate section.

    You're in the S65 section, thanks.

    Sticky, you keep hiding behind the DCT excuse, GT-R's have a more complext DCT than your car and people have been building GT-R for years. Audi R8's have a DCT and tuners have been building some sick R8s for years. $#@!ing NASA put a man on the moon in less time than this build took....and a DCT is not rocket sciene.

    It's no excuse, it's a fact another company had the trans for an extended period of time and that it is different from the C63 trans. The C63/M156 is not applicable here.

    The GT-R has dozens of tuners working on it, also not applicable although at least closer. And it uses a different manufacturer as it has a deeper clutch basket.

    The DCT complicates things, that's all. The programming is also an issue.
