    • Maximum PSI Stage 2 E46 M3 S54 inline-6 turbo kit sets 6-speed E46 M3 1/4 mile record with 10.43@135.81 pass

      Congratulations to Maximum PSI and Nick G of Technique Tuning (the tuner for the Max PSI kit) for a record setting 1/4 mile pass. The Stage 2 Maximum PSI E46 M3 turbocharger kit managed a very impressive 10.42@135.81 1/4 mile pass. This is with a 6-speed manual car, tuned by Nick G on the stock DME, running the stock internals and 11.5:1 compression ratio. The run took place at the ATCO drag strip located in New Jersey.

      No details were included as to the boost pressure run on the MS109 fuel, tire specs (clearly drag rubber), or supporting modifications such as the exhaust or suspension. A video of the record setting run is below and hopefully Maximum PSI provides further details.

      Regardless, this an incredible achievement for the E46 M3 and congratulations are in order for all involved. This is definitely a feat that can be replicated by owners of the Stage 2 kit and bodes well for Stage 3 and beyond.

        What were the cam timing issues? VANOS tuning related?

        They were having a problem with the DME pulling timing last time they reported about it running at the track

        We all know that but he mentioned on the street so there were issues with the street tune?

        Sticky, I meant street/track basically anywhere off the dyno. I also like to know if they only did only one pull that day or a few and if that was the best of them.

        I see I thought you were specifically referring to a street tune rather than the track tune for higher octane fuel.
