• The Killer Bee - Active Autowerke Gen 2 Level III supercharged 2010 Dakar Yellow E92 M3 S65 V8 hits 632 wheel horsepower

      Yep, Active Autowerke's Generation II Level III E9X M3 supercharger kit is the real deal and one of the strongest options on the platform. As if there should be any doubt at this point but if there was after seeing these results it should absolutely vanish. 632 horsepower at the wheels on the 5252 Motorsports Dyno Dynamics dynamometer. The correction factor used has the dyno reading similarly to a Dyonjet as an E92 M3 baselined 345 wheel horsepower stock.


      Putting the numbers in context shows the Active Level III kit adding just under 300 horsepower at the wheels to the 4.0 liter S65 V8. That is something to brag about. 300+ horsepower bolted onto a 4.0 liter 12.0:1 compression V8 with over 100 horsepower per liter off the showroom floor is special in of itself but Active doing it with a beautifully tuned supercharger kit is icing on the cake. Just look at the horsepower curve and air/fuel numbers. Who says tuning is not an art form?

      Dynographs and a dyno video below. The lower horsepower graphs actually were runs before the 632 wheel number. The car was adding power, not losing it, after subsequent runs as one might conventionally think.

        What's a stock E9x M3 normally put down on that dyno? Big jumps between those three pulls, 632, 616 & 587, but that Rotrex C38 is showing to be really, really potent.

        We have noticed that the ecu usually makes more hp after every run. This car is no different..

        Spot on Andrew. I also reset all adaptions prior. The 632, 616 were the last runs after letting it sit to cool down. It was cold out that day. One thing I find noteworthy is in the video, pay attention to throttle close slowly just before redline! Nice work Active Click here to enlarge

        I thought it was the other way around where the car was progressively losing ~20 WHP. Great news to hear I had it backwards and I was finally starting to settle in at ~630 WHP

        I would think so myself in regular dynos my cobalt lost power after everyrun. My 335 on the otherhand as well as lots of other BMWs that were at EAS dyno day had the same affect. Made more power the more runs you did. I was at 460,463 then 465 whp. Let about 3 minutes between each run.
