    • ABT tuned Audi R8 V10 vs. G-power SK-II supercharged DCT M3

      This is a bit of a surprising result. The Audi R8 V10 is a fast car, we all know that. This example features an ABT tune and Milltek exhaust which the combo is said to be good for 600 horsepower. The G-power SK-II supercharger kit is said to produce 570 horsepower at around 6 psi using an ASA T1-522 supercharger. It sure does not look like 570 horsepower on the M3 as with that much power and a dual clutch transmission it should put up a much better fight. The Audi walks it, easily.

        It's surprising indeed. Mikewads raced with a stock V10 and walked it badly, he removed the video so i can't post it here.
        also Gustav's car is pretty fast, Vbox numbers are pretty strong.

        That was about what I expected... Love how the R8 punched it in 1st gear as well!

        power to weight... do the math if you want to get an idea of what the M3 was putting down.

        I think they are both at the crank. The Audi is not putting out 600 AWHP NA.

        Nope, G-power doesn't use meth.

        It's not 570HP it seems..... aftercooled at least? (air/air air/water intercooler?)

        Stock WHP is about 360 right? So this should be around 480WHP at 6 psi?

        Samir posted a great G-power dyno not too long ago, let me try to find it.

        That looked about right to me...the Audi is lighter than the M3 and more powerful and it was a fairly close race. The R8 clearly won but it wasn't like the M3 was completely useless or anything.

        The R8 V10 is actually heavier than the M3 weighing in at 3,724 pounds. Also, the AWD should suck some power.

        The M3 just does not appear to be that strong or that R8 is being sand bagged. Maybe both...

        What is this, amateur hour at camp stupid over here? How could I forget the Audi is Quattro. I didn't know it was that heavy, either.

        I don't know, I would figure ABT would have a tuner.
