    • HPF Stage 2 Turbo S54 versus Active Autowerke supercharged S65 - E46 M3 versus E92 M3 - Torque versus horsepower

      Interesting race here showing the difference between two forced induction options offering different power curves. The Horsepower Freaks (RIP) Stage 2 Turbo E46 M3 in the video is definitely making more torque than the Active Autowerke Gen II Level III supercharged E92 M3. But, the E92 M3 is making its torque peak toward redline and having extra revs over the S54 inline-6 in the E46 M3 definitely shows its strength here as the supercharged E92 M3 is able to beat the turbocharged E46 M3.

      Both cars have meth injection and both are on the stock engine internals. The E46 M3 is slightly lighter but the E92 M3 has the quicker shifting transmission. The supercharged car wins this round no doubt causing a lot of turbo E46 M3 owners proclaiming superiority due to peak torque figures to scratch their heads. It's where you make the horsepower that counts in a roll on race and combine a strong top end with a quick shifting dual clutch and you have the result you see here.

      It will be interesting to see what happens when built motor E92 M3 S65 V8's go up against built motor E46 M3 S54 inline-6's. BimmerBoost will be sure to make that comparison happen.

        That widebody E46 is hideous, I do like the matte black E92 (red headlights is a bit much tho)

        That wide body on that e46 is ugly. Way to mess up the look of the stock body. Of course this is my opinion, to each their own.

        I dont think this is in Saudi, it might be in Lebanon. Could be wrong.
