• Active Autowerke Stage 2 E92/E90 M3 supercharger with meth injection dyno numbers - 499 whp

      We are a little surprised with these results. The car here belongs to BimmerBoost members akh23456 and he was kind of enough to send us the dyno graphs. We have been following his Active Autowerke Stage 2 build which was completed by Maximum PSI and now have the independent dyno results. In SAE correction the car hit 499 whp, not cracking 500 on any run. Runs were done in 4th and 5th gears and the car is a DCT. The higher number you see on the graph here is the best 5th gear run vs. the best 4th gear run, take a look.

        There it is. Finally a dyno. Now, how much power are the other kits making with the same settings, compared to this? I thought this kit would yield more than 500whp easily. Very nice looking though, that graph looks smooth.

        Well I'm sort of thinking the same thing you are. It depends on the kit really.

        We don't have any ESS supercharger numbers with meth.

        My setup hit in the 570's.

        I'm not really sure why these numbers are what they are as the Stage I numbers were said to be 524 whp for the kit as per Active:

        agreed about the graph, it's really smooth.
        Congrats AK, over 500WHP or not it's a great thing to look at and I'm sure it's great to drive as well.

        It is over 500 in other correction factors. This is SAE.

        i am going to Maxpsi tomm so i'll have another set of graphs. The meth can be mis-leading because its used as a cooler not a Octane booster/ the kit doesn't rely on meth. I am glad with the number, my Afr's are better than the bolt on pulleys i think.

        This is smart.

        I'm also thinking the graph AA released initially was likely a 6 speed car.

        The boost on the Stage 2 and Stage 1 is the same, right?

        i wish more guys can post some real dynos as well. It will soon enough. i am planning on going primary catless to document the power the gain and see if i like the noise.

        i am not sure honestly. But i deff like how the car is driving and i have better mpg's so that a huge plus right now with gas prices so high. (still driving the same). After i put more miles on i will give a better review. Had fun with CTS-v today let just say he was a bit surprised that my M was in front.

        Man, did you say it. I didn't want to go there but yes, thank you for posting REALISTIC numbers and not dyno queen numbers. This is the performance your car will actually put down on the street.

        For real man, too many people love posting glory dynos nowadays. I'm sure the noise will be awesome after getting rid of your primary cats.

        It's getting to the point they have made dynos useless. Everyone thinks you can get 600 whp on pump gas, it's become ridiculous and people still buy into it.

        agree with you there, i want numbers that have some real VALUE.

        Isnt that blower a bit small for the 4L v8? Same one that was a little small on the E46?

        i have his baselines so i can do that in a few minutes. i think going catless will really help him open it up a lot.

        also, there is a realistic AND local ESS dyno floating around, it just doesnt get discussed much.

        Not bad of numbers! I wonder how much psi it's set to, either way that sc puts good power with its size.
