    • Blown M3 vs blown M3 - Gintani Stage II supercharged E92 M3 6MT goes up against an Evolve E600 supercharged E92 M3 6MT

      Some hot supercharged M3 on M3 action here! This video is courtesy of a BimmerBoost member who attended a recent roll on race event in Chicago. His car is the camera car here and it is an E92 M3 with a 6-speed manual and the Gintani Stage II supercharger system. The silver E92 M3 also is a 6-speed manual car but it is equipped with the Evolve E600 supercharger kit. The Evolve car is running pump gas and less boost.


      The full specifications are below but each car has supporting mods including an aftermarket exhaust. The sound quality of the M3 with an aftermarket exhaust comes across very well in this video so turn your speakers up.

      The Gintani car does pull the Evolve car but it is important to note several factors. As both cars are manual driver skill is arguably the largest variable. Additionally, the Gintani car is running higher boost with a race gas mix. On paper it should pull up top and that is exactly what happens in practice. Another camera angle would help compare how the power comes on as there is a big difference between the supercharger head units each company utilizes but essentially what we see here is the top end difference between these two particular setups.


      Thank you to @e92livin for the video.

        Results are about what I would expect with the Gintani running slightly higher boost. I would have a rough time driving that car without getting tickets though as I think I would find myself getting on it just to hear it!

        Haha, yeah I do take it easy a lot, on the highway on the way to work sometimes I open it up a lot and hope for the best.

        It is one of the best supercharger options for the S65.. the Evolve kit does look pretty dope under the hood too.

        If one is interested in a custom tailored setup and they want to push the envelope a bit, it is the best option.

        The Evolve kit is excellent and offers a different powerband and response.

        It comes to down to personal preference.

        Aren't the Evolve X-Pipes catted too?? Def has less of an impact then the boost & fuel octane being run
