    ESS VT2-625 supercharged DCT E92 M3 versus Paxton supercharged 2013 Mustang 5.0

    Yet another great video from the No Fly Zone event (expect a whole lot of race videos to be posted throughout this week). Strong Mustang here running a Paxton 2200SL supercharger through the stock exhaust system with a 6-speed manual transmission. This Mustang is said to be putting down in the ~600 wheel horsepower range and also was able to dispatch a Weistec Stage II supercharged W204 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.

    The blown Mustang 5.0 also beats this ESS DCT M3 although the M3 does hang in pretty well seemingly getting a small jump likely due to the Mustang starting in a higher gear (3rd gear around 3500 rpm) due to traction issues in second gear. Video is below.

    If that Mustang really throws down ~600whp, then AMAZING work by the ESS VT2-625.

    It's amazing what a blower and DCT can really do.

    Both insanely fast cars!

    I was the Mustang's "victim" in this run...He was running close to 600whp on a 97 octane tune (using Torco). Mustang owner is a close friend so this morning there is a lot of $#@! talking here @ work Click here to enlarge.

    I was a foot back from his bumper at the half mile mark....

    In that run I started in 3rd at 3500rpm, so he got a big jump. I ran him again starting at 50mph at 4500rpm and I won by 2+ cars. Either way it was pretty close. DCT sure helps. Cars were getting heatsoaked pretty bad later in the day so power levels were dropping.

    It was fairly warm out.

    And yes, clearly the 3rd gear start affected you but you still ran him down and passed. Clear which car is faster IMO.

    Here is my dyno from a week ago from a tuning session at Cunningham Motorsports. This is a Torco map.

    Thanks Ryne for a reliable tune Click here to enlarge

    nope, all I got from the tuner. I was making very similar power on a dynojet with SAE correction, so it should be pretty close.

    Ya I'd expect close to 600 whp on a dynojet seems that dyno dynamics is corrected to read like one.

    They had one run and the Weistec pulled a bit on the M3, but it did get the jump. I'd say they are pretty close.
