My previous post explains anything else you would need to know but im just looking for info.

What would I have to do to make it fit? Possibly some cutting?

im pretty sure you can make it fit. but whats the point of such a big turbo when you cant use it to its full potential? i mean unless you have fully forged internals and know what you are doing on this build id highly recommend selling or returning that snail. way to big for our cars, on stock internals that is.

Don't even try a GT55 on an M3.

Unless you plan on running 7s in the 1/4, don't even bother. It's WAY more turbo than you would ever need. Even 8 sec supras only run GT47-88s.

Waste of time. Have you ever driven a 600whp? How about 1200whp? 1500whp?

A GT55 will make even more than that. Rated for 1000-1800hp.

Doesn't sound like you know too much unless you're an experienced drag racer, and build 6-7 sec drag cars all day long, and if you were an experienced drag-car builder, you wouldn't be posting asking what is needed.
