OP is an instructor so he may be able to properly utilize 500+ whp on track. IMO though, most people can't. I'm perfectly happy at 500~ whp as well, especially as the 135i is limited on tire size.

VRSF 7 inch. I will eventually upgrade to the 7.5 inch.

Yes, you do have to cut a lot for these larger intercoolers. VRSF products are reasonably priced and get the job done.
