    • Stock DCT E90 M3 races a Vishnu tuned E90 335 6-speed manual with meth from a roll

      Very interesting race here that shows the strength of even a stock DCT M3 from a roll. The 335 is definitely make more power and torque by virtue of its Vishnu Procede tune upgrade as well as a methanol injection. The 335 also had a dual cone intake and it is a 6-speed manual car. Unfortunately only one camera angle is available but it is still easy to see that the M3 holds off the 335 very well from the start of the race until the 335 eventually is able to pull after quite a bit.


      A race like this goes to show the strength of even a stock DCT M3 versus a tune/meth N54 namely due to the race being from a roll. Good run but the M3 owner should look into a tune and exhaust ASAP.

        Weird how it's such a large difference in your vid especially with a tuned M3. Wonder what the exact specs are.

        He said he just had a few bolt on mods.

        Yes similar mods to what the 335 in the OP has but this M3 isn't stock it's also tuned he is saying.

        I think I'm making a bit more power than (-(ellblazer420.Not sure what he ended up with on FFTEC's dyno.

        I wish they would have put up parking zones to keep the same HP cars in the same area. Would have made it easier to find races. I would have rolled every session, but half the time I rolled down looking for someone to run.

If anyone tell you other mods make a difference, they are full of $#@!. An intercooler does nothing for this car especially on the streets and if you are not consistently gunning it, intake, charge pipe, diverter valves and all this other BS has very negligible gains.
        I don't know about all of that. I dyno'd a solid 10-15hp from 5k to redline with FMIC with tune only (93 octane). It was likely more for higher boost levels.

        Not crazy, but a nice solid gain plus way more consistency.
