Don't under estimate the power of an M...

The chevelle is a heavy ass car...

99 M3... new or old body... can't remember...

If it is the new body... forget about that chevelle... the m3 has 333hp plus mods, is lighter, and a better built car...

If it is an old M... he's done... they are slow... end of story...

You really aren't giving nearly enough information to make an educated guess. It seems you don't know much about cars. You said the Chevelle has new CAMS, etc. A small block chevy can be built to barely outrun a Cougar or it can be built to beat most cars on the road. Get some more specifics on the car and we can give you a better answer. Also you didn't mention if this is a street race, a race at a drag strip, etc. Distance and location will also play a part in the race.

I'm guessing that 400 hp with work COULD be a 350 (since it popular in vettes) and the 454 puts out over 397 STOCK

Some rich ass punk with a 99 M3.....You dont have to be that rich or a punk to have a 99 M3.
And I wouldnt bet on either car by the given info. Need more stats and such on the hundreds of variables.

I'd also need to know how well your friend can drive. If he has that much power and doesn't know how to use it, he'll just sit at the starting line and spin the tires while the M3 spanks him. In order for him to stand a chance, he'd need to know how use the power his car has. Same with the M3.

BMW doesn't make a V6 ... they make the best I6 on the planet though ;)

My money would be on the Chevelle

Ok, now I would say the Chevelle due to the other guys stats.
And to those who dont know what a BMW I6 engine is....Inline 6- look up that stats on their engines, very powerful.

ok I'm going to have to chime in here and say CHEVELLE. According to Edmund's, the '99 M3 only has 240hp, so I think an intake and exhaust would only give him about 260. If that's the case, you're still talking about a 140hp difference...I don't care how much that chevelle weighs. BTW the M3 weighs 3175lbs. I'm sure the chevelle weighs at least 4000lbs, if not more...but still...

i have been in a V8 5.0 mustang 1983 30th anviery edition and i kno the chevelle would beat that
so i mean i think its going to kill the m3 especially because it going to be a relative short race

Good luck to your friend with the Chevelle
But now I understand why there are dead street racers
everywhere. The kids are 17 with 400+ hp car?
and they're probably going to race over a resevoir?
good stuff:rofl:

Anyway I say Chevelle I don't know anything about M3's
but I always take the muscle car in a short race and it sounds
like he's done a good amount of work to it.
you said he "he had his rear redone" what like new gears? or just a new rear end- 9 inch?
That would make a difference. 4.11's 4.56 ?
