The S54 engine used in the E46 M3 is the ultimate and final evolution of the iron-block S50 inline-6 that powered the European-spec versions of the E36 M3. Though derived from the 3.2-liter S50 B32 unit, the S54 features the following enhancements: -Increased cylinder bore to 87mm (from 86.1mm) for a new total displacement of 3,246cc -Modified camshafts -High pressure Double VANOS continuously variable valve timing system with faster operation at high rpm -Increased compression to 11.5:1 (from 11.3:1) -Advanced BMW/Siemens MSS 54 engine management control -Electronic throttle activation with two M Dynamic Driving Control response modes -Finger-type rocker arms for reduced reciprocating mass and friction -One-piece aluminum head casting for lighter weight -Scavenging oil pump to maintain pressure during heavy cornering The S54 engine in the E46 M3 is rated at 343 hp (DIN) or 333 hp (SAE) at 7,900 rpm and 262 lb/ft of torque at 4,900 rpm. Beginning with 09/01 production, the E46 M3 was also offered with the second-generation Sequential M Gearbox (SMG II). Using the unaltered internal gears and ratios of the Getrag Type D manual gearbox, SMG II provides automatic operation of the clutch and engagement of each gear via an electrohydraulic system operated by Drivelogic, the electronic gearbox software. SMG II offers 11 driver-adjustable programs, six in "sequential" (driver-operated) mode and five in "automated" (computer-controlled) mode. In addition, there is also a Launch Control function that provides optimized shifting times for maximum acceleration. Electronic stability control? The E46 M3 is equipped with a special version of Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) developed by Teves specifically for the E46 M3. It can reduce power and/or brake each wheel individually to help maintain traction and control oversteer. The DSC can also be disabled completely via a dash-mounted switch. In addition, the M3 CSL and the M3 ZCP/CS models are further equipped with M Track Mode, a switchable setting that allows for some oversteer and wheelspin by raising the threshold at which the DSC intervenes. What is the M Differential Lock and how does it work? The M Differential Lock, fitted as standard equipment to every E46 M3, is an advanced version of the traditional limited slip differential. Though still entirely mechanical in operation, the M Differential Lock is activated when there is a difference in rotational speed between the two rear wheels. This difference pressurizes a viscous silicon fluid, which then operates a multi-disc clutch that directs more power to the wheel with the greatest traction. How is the North American version of the E46 M3 mechanically different to the European-spec model? Unlike the E36 M3, which was equipped with a unique engine configuration for North America, all E46 M3s sold worldwide are powered by the same S54 power plant and only differ mechanically in minor ways.
