I was completely all stock except for the intercooler I had the Dinan FMIC. It was a long time ago, so I wouldnt expect anyone to remember that far back expecially all the cars that Lenny tunes and dynos.

For a FBO car I have seen the same tune on @bme30 07 E92 put down 388 whp 430 wtq. It was Ryan , Lenny and myself. These numbers were in the non adaptive state ie Ryan took out his PROcede to compare with the RENNTech flash while it was on the dyno. Three pulls were done only for those ending numbers. I am pretty sure Ryan's car after it had adapted to the RENNtech tuning would have gotten closer to 400 whp. "

That's sucks, plus you'd probably get kicked off after the first run anyway. Private day it is then. "

There is zero data on the twins to analyze but based on the twin turbo boost numbers I heard thrown around (700rw @ 29-30psi, etc) I'm not sure that is the case here. On this time will tell.

Having driven both a 5858 bottom mount and 5862 top mount TS back to back, I will say the 5862 TS spools better and makes more power. The only drawbacks are cost and heat management due to the top mount configuration. It would be interesting to compare the 5862 TS to say the smallest of the twin options. "

Sticky created the thread 620 all wheel horsepower G55? Yep. Eurocharged tuned 5.7 liter built motor M113 V8 with Weistec 3.0 liter blower makes for an epic G-Wagon.
" Why does anyone need over 600 horsepower at the wheels in a G-Wagon? Come on now, nobody reading this site is asking that question. A 5600 pound German tank pushing 620 horsepower to all four wheels along with 547 pound-feet of torque is absurdly awesome. The motor is built by Eurocharged and is bored out to 5.7 liters with ported heads. The supercharger is Weistec's 3.0 liter twin screw which replaces the 2.1 liter OEM blower.

Eurocharged added in some of their custom tuning and the result at all four wheels is staggering. Considering the drivetrain losses this is one of the strongest supercharged M113 V8's in the world. Simply great work by everyone involved.

I will say, it seemed we were on the verge of a fueling crash at that point as HPFP was doing its normal dippy dance. This was before we modified the rail and the pump, after that we ended up with 67X no meth with some higher octane, and again logs that kept the most careful tuner I have ever worked with happy. The last thing we wanted was a hurt motor, we did at least 500 dyno pulls and another 500-1000 street pulls on that car at power levels varying from 550-725WHP, and he still daily drives the car 30 miles to work everyday without a hint of oil consumption. I have no doubt 600WHP can be had on 93 and the logs would be happy, this is just based on the experience we had tuning that first kit. I guess time will tell.
No offense intended here, but I think logs speak for themselves, and when logs are not posted I think that also speaks for itself. I agree the 570rw on 91 octane number is doable, as is the 600rw on 91 octane Shiv claimed to make. I'm just saying based on the data I've seen now tuning maybe 10 single turbo cars I wouldn't run it that way myself. "
