    • Gintani sets new E9X M3 S65 V8 horsepower record hitting 828 horsepower with a Stage III supercharger

      Things are progressing nicely on the M3 front with Gintani recently recording 828 horsepower at the crank in a manual E90 M3. The car has a low compression built motor (compression will not be revealed at this time) and hit 16.5 psi of boost from a Vortech YSI. The blower has more in it and could likely be overspun to the 22 psi range but for now 828 horsepower at 16.5 psi is very impressive and more than anyone has made up until today. Expect to see more out of these Stage III cars, like BimmerBoost's own project M3, in the next few weeks.

        Well it doesn't help that the only low-compression E9x M3s on the East Coast are both ESS cars, would be nice to see some variety (and some runs in Mexico)

        And your car needs to get up & running so it can gun it down

        I noticed the other day Tightie parted his M3 out and sold it. He now has a 2013 M3 E92, running it stock (for now).

        Interesting --- I thought I saw on one other performance forum that he got in an E60 M5 (which made sense to me b/c Gintani just released their S85 s/c kit). Take that with a grain of salt tho since I read it off a forum

        Yeah, he had a thread up with his new 2013 M3 with a set of Morr wheels.

        He had his SC kit up for sale for $6k, no takers. It is apparently just sitting in storage.

        Just looked again. He actually started a fresh for sale thread today on failpost. Now priced at $6k (or best offer).

        SO basically all the components for any of the Gintani kits: his manifold, the Vortech T-trim, Heat Exchanger w/ Pumps + Plumbing, Meth Kit w/ Pump & Plumbing, s/c bracket AND all the belts

        It won't sell just because of the ESS brainwashing that's taken place on M3Post; nobody will want to touch

        I think so.... I know in one of the threads, Izzy was saying if he got some1s VBOX results that "his friend" could plug it into this program that accurately depicts the 60-130 or whatever runs you're doing

        Always liked Josh's car. Was one of the first S/C M3's I saw in action at the track.

        Wouldn't it be ironic if his new M3 ended up with an ESS blower Click here to enlarge

        He said in a project thread he was looking for a short lease M3, so he can get the next gen M3. Sounds like he has track mods planned, not really power mods. Next on the list is a Moton setup.

        Pretty they have another stage 3 strapped on the dyno this afternoon.
        Should be some interesting #'s in the high 6's to low 7's.
        I saw a VID of the car and it sounds sick!
