    • Maximum PSI's factory DME tuned E36 M3 ends up at 1041 wheel horsepower and runs a 9.1@163 1/4 mile

      Holy. Poop. 9.1@163 in the 1/4 mile? Stock DME tuning? 1041 wheel horsepower? Maximum PSI already impressed the heck out of BimmerBoost with their 1008 wheel horsepower dyno graph that was good for a new record on stock DME tuned S52/M52 inline-6 motors. With a change to C85 fuel (VP racing E85) Nick G of Technique Tuning adjusted the tune to hit a peak of 1041 horsepower at the wheels on a Dynojet in SAE correction.

      This is not just some dyno queen either. Maximum PSI took the car to the strip and ran a mind blowing 9.1@163 being just short of the first fully street legal BMW in the 8's. Yes, a BMW has run 8's but that car which managed a 8.97@153 has a powerglide transmission. This car still has the factory manual transmission although obviously with upgraded components.

      8's will come but enjoy the video and dyno graph below. The bar has been raised.

        Tried to run at Atco yesterday but they shut down for wind/temp. Trying again on Friday. I just need to eliminate that bog off the line with more boost/harder launch.

        Sticky FYI your information in this article on my personal best is wrong. I went 8.81 @157 in a 1/4 mile with powerglide transmission. I posted slips and video in the 1/4 mile/ 60-130 thread you just never updated the list, said you were too busy at the time... And to Mike/Max psi: good work and let's see that 8 Second pass with a bmw trans!!!!

        My bad thank you for correcting me. Regardless, if this hits 8's this would be the quickest factory manual BMW in the world if it is not already.
