One bad Z4M.. in progress..

– tig’d equal length divided manifold / twinscroll w/GTX35R



– custom motor mounts for clearance



- Essimen Exhaust w/Custom 3” from turbo back.




Its my buddys build. It will be running on E85, has a custom full face feramic clutch, DSS 1000hp axles, 4" color can display, full race technologies dataloger DL computer with GPS/etc. The exhaust is catless from the turbo back and is custom. Lutz performance in Tampa is doing the build, the cars final destination will be here in the bay area.

It will likely be back in 3 months or so. Just in time for hopefully some better weather.

Goal is about 600rwhp - 650rwhp and a quick spool.

What engine management is going to be used by the way? And at what psi will it take to run 600rwhp? Also, do you think our stock transmission will hold up?

It will likely run on some 19's with R888's for the street, and 18's (apex arc-8's) with Hooiser A6's for the track.

I run ADV10.1 Monobloc's with R888's on my E46 M3 w/850rwhp on the street and it holds up decently. But yes, those Hankook V12's won't hook for crap.

It will be running a ProEFI 128 EMS, not sure on the PSI yet.. somewhere likely between 13-17 I'm guessing, its going to be a flex fuel car though, so it will run a mixture of E85 (Ethanol) and Gas.. or just straight Ethanol. It is having a surge tank built as well.

The Z4M uses a ZF Transmission and my E46 M3 uses a Getrag.. the Getrag has held up to 1000rwhp without breaking a sweat.. only time will tell how the ZF holds 600rwhp.. but I'm willing to bet it will do just fine.

There is definitely a bunch of knowledge that could be replicated. I would call Shawn/Andrew at Lutz Performance in Tampa. They build some amazing BMW's down there and thats why we brought it there.. even though its the FURTHEST spot from Nor Cal possible.

Tell them I (Marcus) sent ya. They'll hook you up with a Turbo Z4M, or anything really for that matter.. Shawn is an incredible fabricator!
