    • 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.

      This car belongs to BimmerBoost member @IMHOWTFFTW. Respect from BimmerBoost.

        I'm not complaining I just wasn't expecting to see that considering that photo wasn't used in the article. Facebook synchronization clearly leaves a lot to be desired.

        Great numbers! Nice to see the rotrex potential...

        I really love Dakar Yellow, always have. If i could have, i would have bought a e92 m3 in dakar but its almost impossible to find unless you buy it new. I love the car OP.

        With e9x m sales numbers dropping, it makes perfect sense to pick one up for $35-$45k and put a blower on it. A SC V8 e9x m3 is almost perfect.

        Thanks buddy! According to my dealer here the E9x is the hottest, most asked to find M right now, and they are a M cert dealer. They are getting 2 pre production M4's in may(April build) and have not taken deposits on them yet. They contacted me to offer one to me as they really want one of my E92's that they say they can sell 10 times over. Hang on to the E92- GOLD!

        It makes sense! The car is amazing..... the looks are timeless, dct is one of the best trans you can buy, v8 sounds amazing and with a SC its one quick car. Mine is going to be in my possession for a long long long time

        What whp levels would be possible on MS109 on this level 3 system and

        Is there any need or advantages to add water/meth on a build like this (I don't know much about boosted S65's on meth)

        The water meth system is used not only for cooler iat's but to bump up the octane a little as well. The use of race gas may make a little more hp but, I personally wouldn't buy it because of the price.

        Damn! Impressive figures. Don't Dyno Dynamics usually read a bit less than DynoJet? I was over 600whp un corrected 400wtq on a cold night. Enjoy!

        Usually unless they are set to read high.
