    • The world's most powerful E92 M3, BimmerBoost.com Gintani Stage 3.5+ supercharged E92 M3 hits 773 wheel horsepower - Dynograph and video

      The world horsepower record for the E9X M3 S65 V8 currently stands at 773 wheel horsepower and belongs to Gintani as well as BimmerBoost.com, just do not expect it to stand for very long. At Bimmerfest 2013 Gintani had the BimmerBoost.com project E92 M3 on display. They worked tirelessly to get the car ready for the event and took it to the dyno the night before. On MS109 race gas and 18.5 pounds of boost the car was able to hit 773 wheel horsepower with the completely stock DCT transmission slipping at 7250 rpm.

      Looking at the dyno graph below it is easy to see where the clutches begin to slip. At about 4750 rpm the clutch slips a bit then grabs as the pull continues up to 7250 rpm where it slips again and is unable to hold the power as the car is run to its 8500 rpm redline. Regardless, 7250 rpm was enough for a new world record on the S65 V8 platform and overall on the E9X BMW platform.

      Gintani will be rebuilding the cars DCT transmission and once that is complete the car will be back on the dyno for a clean run to redline and another world record. Looking at the graph, the car should conservatively be capable of ~830 wheel horsepower at 18.5 psi with MS109. What will it do on FTW Purple and 24 psi? We will eventually find out.

      Enjoy the picture and graph below. There is a video included of the car at Bimmerfest 2013. A huge crowd was gathered around it. For some reason the announcer at Bimmerfest never notified the crowd that the world's most powerful E92 M3 was in the house and that a new world record had been achieved on the platform. I waited for hours for the announcement which was hand written and delivered to the announcer but to no avail. Additionally, the car did not win a single award despite being the E92 M3 on display that had the most work done to it. Perhaps it needed some tacky neon green trim and red roundels? Definitely odd and awkward considering the years of engineering that have gone into it and that Gintani was a sponsor of the event. Perhaps if a competitor was not the headline sponsor Gintani and this car would have received the acknowledgement that was deserved and earned?

      Congratulations to Gintani on raising the bar to where nobody else on the platform is able to tread. This car is just getting warmed up.

        I mean just look at what happened at the show. ESS sponsors, Gintani can't even get mentioned over the loudspeaker. Am I supposed to start my own show now too?

        Just saw the video now. Sounds awesome. Try keep the static revving to a minimum as the pistons are turning with no resistance.

        Gintani feels I'm more important. LOL, yes, his car is being built as a track car only. Not sure if he doing the YSI.

        A lof of engine builders i have spoken too say its bad for a car especially FI to be revved continuously when idle. I would imagine the rpm increase is unatural vs when under load and it apparently creates unatural wear.

        Probably but a few revs likely won't kill anyone or anything. The did break it in significantly.

        I have heard this too - however, I have heard it for NA also - especially on the motorcycle side of things. I don't truly understand the engineering reasons/rationale behind it though. When you say unnatrual wear, what does that mean? Is it just because there is not as much "push" on the rod due to the lack of load? I would see these causing "less" wear - but now see what you mean if it's not the same type of wear - jsut would like to hear an explaination

        Cheers.

        You've definitely done a good job with this community without a doubt. I don't post too much on forums and often read threads. This is the only forum where there is an open and honest dialogue. It's a fresh and needed change. Hard work always pays off though and patience is a virtue.

        Without a doubt. I'm just speaking for myself on the matter but I don't expect praise of any kind. I just do my thing and if something good comes my way for it all the better. You can never expect someone else to appreciate your accomplishments. Sometimes you have to just know what you've done is killer and no one else's opinion or thoughts matter. Click here to enlarge

        I look at car shows and forums like I do high school. At the time, the "cool kids" seemed really important. Now 8 years later I look back and think to myself (or say out loudly in front of said people at the 5 year reunion), "Wow, what a bunch of turds. These people were popular?"

        In all seriousness, this is absolutely sick. I can't wait to see if you run it in the standing mile. You are truly taking BMW into uncharted territory.

        Were you at Bimmerfest?
        No I wasn't. I didn't feel like spending my day in Pasadena. Went hiking instead and had a great time.

        I like Pasadena but the traffic is a nightmare.

        Glad you had a great day but I'm surprised you wouldn't want to be around the BMW's.
