    • The world's most powerful E92 M3, BimmerBoost.com Gintani Stage 3.5+ supercharged E92 M3 hits 773 wheel horsepower - Dynograph and video

      The world horsepower record for the E9X M3 S65 V8 currently stands at 773 wheel horsepower and belongs to Gintani as well as BimmerBoost.com, just do not expect it to stand for very long. At Bimmerfest 2013 Gintani had the BimmerBoost.com project E92 M3 on display. They worked tirelessly to get the car ready for the event and took it to the dyno the night before. On MS109 race gas and 18.5 pounds of boost the car was able to hit 773 wheel horsepower with the completely stock DCT transmission slipping at 7250 rpm.

      Looking at the dyno graph below it is easy to see where the clutches begin to slip. At about 4750 rpm the clutch slips a bit then grabs as the pull continues up to 7250 rpm where it slips again and is unable to hold the power as the car is run to its 8500 rpm redline. Regardless, 7250 rpm was enough for a new world record on the S65 V8 platform and overall on the E9X BMW platform.

      Gintani will be rebuilding the cars DCT transmission and once that is complete the car will be back on the dyno for a clean run to redline and another world record. Looking at the graph, the car should conservatively be capable of ~830 wheel horsepower at 18.5 psi with MS109. What will it do on FTW Purple and 24 psi? We will eventually find out.

      Enjoy the picture and graph below. There is a video included of the car at Bimmerfest 2013. A huge crowd was gathered around it. For some reason the announcer at Bimmerfest never notified the crowd that the world's most powerful E92 M3 was in the house and that a new world record had been achieved on the platform. I waited for hours for the announcement which was hand written and delivered to the announcer but to no avail. Additionally, the car did not win a single award despite being the E92 M3 on display that had the most work done to it. Perhaps it needed some tacky neon green trim and red roundels? Definitely odd and awkward considering the years of engineering that have gone into it and that Gintani was a sponsor of the event. Perhaps if a competitor was not the headline sponsor Gintani and this car would have received the acknowledgement that was deserved and earned?

      Congratulations to Gintani on raising the bar to where nobody else on the platform is able to tread. This car is just getting warmed up.

        Mind sharing what the kinks are? Tuning or tranny?

        I'm getting really fed up with all the security encryption bs the OEMs burden an owner with once the car is purchased. They should be obliged by law to unlock the DME to those willing to tinker with performance. The heck is a big deal here! Especially if the car is done production

        The F30 apparently takes it to a whole new level. I don't get BMW's problem or why they make it so difficult. To hell with them.

        It honestly doesn't make any sense at all. For those willing to sign their warranty away for the reason of doing work with their car outside the dealership and signing off on all liability from the manufacturer this should be totally doable. I actually think it should be enforced by law to have them hand over the keys when the car is paid for Click here to enlarge i'm serious

        At the end of the day, they'd end up saving themselves a bunch of unnecessary warranty work/coverage if they allowed for this to happen...it'd also save the consumer some money buying the car because of the warranty being bundled into the cost of the car..win win

        I'm not disagreeing, that's how it should be. They are keeping you out of your own property. But does Microsoft have to hand over the Windows source code when you put it on your PC?

        No one's asking for source code though. Just performance tables to be opened up for calibration.

        Good point. Well, I wish there was a way to force them to at the very least allow some tuning access.

        A lot of Japanese OEM's seem to give out open source ECU's after a while. At least I think the Subaru and Mitsubishi world's literally have all the source code available.

        American companies are a lot more friendly with this. I think they are becoming much more worthy of getting business. Especially since I don't care much about impressing with a badge any longer.

        BMW won't give anything out, why help the competition? You don't think their unique software is part of what makes these engines great? Get real guys....

        The n20 is one of the best if not the best 4 cylinder production engines available, the software and how the dme controls the economy,performance, and vitals of the engine is part of the key.

        For sure that's true but can't they at least let you tune it?

        Nope....

        They lock out tuners inadvertently by trying to lock out Audi, merc and everyone else that wants to try and copy their high performance/fuel efficient engines.

        Or are they more concerned about people tuning? I mean Audi and Merc have the resource to disassemble anything really. Hell employees change hands between them all the time.

        Nope, I think your giving tuning way to much weight. Its bc of the competition...

        Then why don't the Japanese and American worry to the same degree?

        They choose not to? I dunno, I'm just telling you thats why BMW does it....

        BMW is also a lux brand, with high cost and R&d costs....which specific American and Japanese brands are you referring too?

        It's a German thing.... They don't want people tinkering around with their products that they invested a $#@! ton more time & energy "perfecting". Meanwhile, Audi/VW/Porsche & Mercedes couldn't care less.

        I mean, for how much these cars cost, they should be helping owners diagnosis any & all problems they're having with their cars -- Stock or Modded

        Is this car even running properly yet? I've been MIA for the past month but not much seems to have changed. I don't know about calling it the most powerful M3 without it running 100%? Looks like it may be dethroned by that turbo setup before it actually has a crown...
