    • 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.

        Finish trans and enjoy it for a bit. That's about it.

        there are enough cars with 800+ft torque and around 1000whp.

        No e9X though. Also, not too many with a torque curve like an SC S65 with a DCT trans. One this car is fully functional, it will be extremely difficult to beat. GTRs, Vettes, and UGR Lambos.

        Yet people call the platform weak...

        That depends on the application. My point? I'd like to see 700-800+ wtq capable DCT. And I don't want it for the M3, I don't have one of those and dont' plan on buying one... right now anyway.

        I just want to see Sticky's car up against 1000hp GTR's, and Lambos.. That would say alot.

        Well clearly we're talking about the M3 in application here? The M3 doesn't need as much torque as other cars to make more power. It's a beautiful thing.

        I won't be able to take on the 1800+ guys obviously but there will be plenty of GTR's and Lambos that can be beaten.

        No, I'm not. So I guess thats not clear. I'm talking about the DCT. Don't think I've said anything about the M3's dct although I see how that may appear implied. I want to see the DCT perform.

        Um ok well in this thread the discussion is about the DCT in how it relates to the M3 so it is logical for that to be the context.

        Regardless, it is going to perform very well.

        Just doing my monthly check in...

        Still a sham I see Click here to enlarge .

        I'll say when I got to this forum I was a believer, but damn this is really the definition of a "FAIL"

        Sorry for the negativity (or honesty?) Sticky. Would love to see this thing actually fully running. No hope for high power DCTs yet I guess...

        Good luck and props for having this much patience.

        You should use an online dictionary so that way you use words that apply:

        It's a fail this is the world's most powerful E92? It's a fail this car won Shift-Sector? Hahahah ok if you say so.

        No hope for high powered DCT's? Why not? M5's and M6's are handling how much torque? You know Getrag made me custom parts right? You know we just got those parts right?

        You know you're not the brightest bulb right?

        People like this make me laugh. This wouldn't be half as much fun if it wasn't for the bitter nobodies. Wonder what they will come up with after the next record. It took too long?

        Well Sticky, he's actually correct and your definition just proves that your previous transmission build was a complete SHAM, unless he's talking about the entire car in general, which I don't believe he is, that obviously is not a SHAM. LOL So these new trans parts, when did you get these? Have you been given an install time? If you have the parts it's only a 2-3 day job...

        No he is talking about my car and the build in its entirety. Look at his post history in this thread. And calling the car to set the highest HP record fail? That's idiotic.

        Were SSP's promises and build a sham? Yes.

        It isn't just install time, you have to break it in, then tune the TCU, then dyno tune it, etc. If you know of someone else with a built DCT making more power that has done this faster let me know.

        Haters in the building. Keep talking.
