    • Gintani wins the BMW M / Mercedes AMG class with the BimmerBoost.com supercharged E92 M3 at October 2013 Shift-S3ctor - Gintani takes first and second place

      Congratulations are in order to Gintani for exceptiopnal results at this past weekends roll on race event held at the Coalinga, California air strip. First place in the roll on race and trap speed categories for BMW and Mercedes vehicles went to BimmerBoost.com's own Vortech YSI supercharged built motor E92 DCT M3 built by Gintani. Second place in the roll on race category went to Gintani's S85 V10 Vortech supercharged E63 M6.

      The runway is shorter than in the previous events meaning trap speeds would not be equal due to a distance difference. The BimmerBoost.com E92 M3 has had its share of teething pains with the bigger YSI blower and complications arising from the level of torque/power with the dual clutch transmission but Gintani was able on a stock BMW DCT transmission to exceed the competition with a 173.07 mile per hour trap speed. This made for the only E9X chassis in the 170's and the next closest car (ESS-Tuning supercharged) was in the mid 160 range. A clear, distinct difference and victory.

      Transmission and traction issues prevented further improvement but improvement will come as new transmission parts from Germany are on their way in order for the YSI supercharged E92 to be able to put all its power down and even increase boost from the supercharger. Here is a third party's take on how vehicles did at the event at certain power levels:

      "Most 800rwhp cars were trapping about 160 (they moved the cones and everyone was trapping about 10mph+ slower than last year). I was at 165mph when the head lifted and I still had plenty of runway.. If I had to guess that trap would have been about 175mph. That was a rolling start at about 50-60mph at the cones. The 800rwhp cars were trapping 160 from a dig way back against the edge of the runway. Which I estimate put them probably at about 80mph when they hit the cones."

      Most of the cars in the 800 whp range hit the 160 mile per hour trap range putting this performance level in perspective. Additionally, the dual clutch transmission shows just how efficiently it makes use of power trapping higher than cars at similar power levels. Are dual clutch transmissions a distinct performance advantage? Absolutely.

      A strong turbocharged E46 M3 at a higher power level than the BimmerBoost.com E92 M3 ran 165 mile per hour traps. Showing not only can the E92 M3 run with turbocharged E46 M3's, it can beat them. A Lamborghini Aventador in attendance was running in the 150 trap range showing just how potent aftermarket upgraded German cars have become.

      Congratulations to Gintani for a well deserved victory that has been a long time coming. Persistence and perseverance are the themes of the day. People may try to bring you down but ultimately it is up to you whether you give up. What you see here ladies and gentlemen is the result of consistent hard work which brings with it the fruits of that labor.

      Oh, and what about the second place Gintani E63 M6? It features a DCT transmission swap paired to a supercharged S85 V10. Expect more details on this car in a dedicated article. Pictures below (no video as the cell phone video simply does not show anything in enough detail):

        Gintani has and always will be on another level of development compared to all other companies. They always come with crazy ass ideas and everyone says it can't be done. Look at this $#@! now, just wait till the TT m3 and that m6 are running properly like sticky's car. Those 3 cars are going to put a lot of other companies to shame.

        Once they can show they are reliable at running at the higher HP levels they might put some other companies to shame. But at least they are trying and pushing the envelope.

        Reliability > Absolute Power



        It's great and all to push the envelope, but until they prove it can be a turn-key system it won't have the marketability. Without a doubt they've invested a ton of time/resources/money into the S65 and getting every ounce out of it, so I really hope that they prove their Stage 3 YSI (and TT setup) to be reliable now that the E9x M3s are starting to get into the affordable range & mod-hungry owners' hands.

        All their SC kits run just fine last I checked? They're the only ones who have even reached this HP level so who is running at it reliably exactly? How about they test it out?

        Props again to Gintani & Sticky for rolling their projects and coming out on top. Click here to enlarge

        It weird , why can't people just be enthusiasts and be excited about the progression of the s65

        If I had a evolve supercharged m and someone beat me, I'd post the vid....people are too sensitive

        I was talking about the DCT trans running big power levels and not needing rebuilds every few runs. Back to back runs without crossing your fingers every time you floor it.

        Honestly. You think you'd have a chance running his full on clk63 that is supposedly at 1,100+ whp? What numbers are you aiming for at full tilt plus FTW Purple? Conservative ballpark figure of course Click here to enlarge
        you know I'm not a fanboy but that clk is no joke I'd like to hear your honest opinion
