    • Watch a Dinan 4.6 liter stroker S65 V8 E92 M3 get smacked around by a cammed C5 Z06

      To get a lot more power of the E92 M3 in NA form beyond bolt ons increasing the displacement is really the way to go. An extra 600cc's is a nice chunk to pick up made possible by the relatively short stroke in stock form providing quite a bit of room to grow. However, the LS6 V8 under the hood of the C5 Z06 is sill larger at 5.7 liters. With an aggressive cam only the Z06 can put out in the 420 wheel range and with exhaust and intake 450 wheel is within reason.


      The S65 V8 at 4.6 liters is capable of 441 wheel horsepower. So, on paper, this actually makes for a fairly good race especially with a DCT M3. Yes, the C5 Z06 has a weight advantage but the M3's higher redline makes for a gearing advantage. So what is the problem? The 20 inch Hartge wheels the owner chose to put on his car which are basically boat anchors sapping power. The Hartge badge on the trunk clearly not making it up for it.

      Furthermore, the 441 wheel number for a stroker M3 came from an RDsport setup, not Dinan. Dinan uses a fairly mild tune and has yet to demonstrate as high of dyno numbers with their motor. To really take advantage of this setup the M3 owner needs to ditch the wheels, get a new tune, and also look into Schrick cams as the stroker moves the peak of the powerband to the left. Much more horsepower is there to be had by moving the torque curve to the right towards redline with a more aggressive profile similar to how this Z06 gains power with its cam setup.

      Enjoy the race, but seems silly for the M3 owner to spend all that money on the motor only to limit it in other areas.

        right, you skipped 4xx.. with boost..
        You can get to 400 whp NA without stroking it as I already told you @BrenM3 has done it.

        Secondly, you can probably hit 5XX whp NA with stroking it. I'd love to try but I'm boosted and nobody else is willing to spend the money. The parts are there, go for it.

        I'm sorry, cars are not judged based solely on horsepower.

        It puts out basically 10 whp more stock with 2.2 more liters. How is that comparable to anything else? It's the exact same range.

        They do give it more power to the public in the GTS. It's the cost that's the factor and you are not understanding. BMW could turn it into an F1 motor and rev it to the moon, and? You wan't a $200k+ M3? You can't afford a GT3 RS 4.0 with its motor that you are saying is oh so great.

        If your goal is horsepower per dollar ​BMW IS THE WRONG CHOICE.

        My situtaion two years ago, I needed a car that at least fit 4 people. In my case can fit 5. I honestly don't think there was another car that suited my needs more than the E90 M3. Daily driver all week, fits family, and can transform to a good weekend track car. What car did I overlook when buying a car? I guess all cars could be better, there is always room for improvement. There really isn't a "perfect" car. But at the time, the M3 was as close to perfect for my situation.

        Guess it just difference of opinion. I don't have a problem dropping down a couple gears to snap the necks of my passengers. My buddy has a C63, it just feels lazy driving it. But for his personality, he loves it.

        Show me where Dodge said they did forged pistons so folks could go turbo. Like they built if for Hennessey, UGR, RSi and others to go HAM. If so thats awesome and it would be a first that an OEM built a motor with the aftermarket specifically in mind.

        Forged pistons will better handle turbocharging.

        Indeed that is what the engineer states... Fair enough and a first from an OEM to say out loud. Hey you're right for once bro, kudo's

        i said realistic. realistic, to me, and the rest of the reality based humans, means that a certain variance in hp is epxected, but can be backed up with performance #'s. 42xhp on that dyno should have been more than 116mph..

        so, again, im right. its MORE to start with, and MUCH MORE when bolted on.. awesome point you make

        BB was in the works after I was banned from Bimmerpost which was while I was still NA. I think I know the timeline a bit better. It's all coming together though as I intended.

        More horsepower stock doesn't equal more performance stock. You are looking solely at engine output, it's kind of sad at this point dude.

        And who said a bigger motor won't offer more power NA? Why can't you grasp this still?

        Um ya it's available at every dealer where it's sold and it's street legal. And it's not a race car, wtf are you talking about? You don't even know the subjects you are discussing as you blatant Mercedes M156 engine oversight showed.

        And? That changes my timelines or my development that you aren't aware of somehow?
