Video of a GIAC Stage II B8 S4 walking away from a from a tuned N54 335i 6-speed manual (6MT) - B8 S4 versus 335i
This is definitely a fast B8 S4 and the same vehicle that pulled pretty well on a bolt on E92 M3
at a recent air strip roll on racing event. So, it's faster than a bolt on manual M3 but what about a tuned E92 335i? The result is not pretty for the 335i either with the S4 walking away. Fortunately, the race is not just an exterior view but also features a picture in picture view from the S4 to give perspective. The race is a half mile long from approximately a 40 mile per hour roll.
Unfortunately, the mod list on the E92 335i is unknown other than it is said to have a Stage II tune. Whose tune? What fuel? What supporting mods? Well, these all make a big difference. Fact is though this GIAC tuned car walks away from this particular 335.
The S4 has the Stage 2 software, AWE-Tuning intake, BCS Automotive exhaust, AWE-Tuning pulley, Evolution Racewerks charge cooler separator, 104 octane race gas/map, and spare removed. It is an S-Tronic car.
