• 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.

        Is this car a 6speed?
        Yes, 6 spd and gintani built.
        Ill be hanging out with him later this month as well as the stg2 stock motor car.hes not much of an internet guy but there are pics on the other forum

        So what's going on on the DCT front? Besides your car Sticky and the gintani option coming soon wasn't someone else supposedly close? SSP? And Dodson looking for a test car or something as well?

        SSP was never close they're basically a sham or scam whatever words you want to use and the owner just wants to milk whomever he can to sling parts to whomever he can. Guy is a piece of trash and never made any effort to make anything right. My 'free' DCT upgrade cost me another $5k out of pocket to fix his mistakes. I'm not going to cry about the money but it's more the time wasted than anything else.

        Dodson I haven't heard from for months. They have serious skills though and aren't a joke.

        Regarding the upgrade I mean realistically we're looking at March. There is software work from Gintani and then a lot of parts coming from Getrag themselves so this is the real deal. Gintani's upgrade is really the only true option because it uses hardware from the people who supply BMW. I tried to pry info from them and post it but they told me to keep quiet and not to post anything because then others would find out what it is they are doing. There are several parts involved here and well I don't even know everything that is going on.

        This is all going to work out just fine and work well. If I never played with SSP in the first place this would already be done but I was naive and the thought of saving a few bucks seemed appealing. I also thought SSP knew what they were doing but the more I talked to Kris @ SSP the more I realized he was a salesman than someone who knew the platform. The guy just didn't even understand the power figures I was talking about anyway and thought my car had a six-cylinder. Pay early or pay later, one way or another you are going to pay to get things done right.

        I'm not upset or anything like that I'm glad I played a role in helping real DCT upgrades come out. The main bump in the road has just been other people this car is just a toy for me. You live, you learn, and ultimately this for the benefit of everyone. As long as one or two people appreciate it and utilize it then it's been worth it. Soon people won't have anything else to say.

        I'm getting a DCT so I'm banking on this coming to fruition.

        I'd love to go with a DCT, I've looked into what it takes, cost and all, I would totally do it, if not for...

        1) No proven upgrade available to the market yet
        2) No idea of cost of upgrades that are being worked on now

        I just told you roughly $5k and just wait for it to be completed.

        5k and the DCT is good for what power levels?

        I'm not sure. I don't think I'll be able to make more than it can take with this blower.

        Just ditch the original gearbox, slap on an F10 DCT and you're good to go.

        How much power were you able to make with this kit before building your engine?

        if i'm not mistaken, sticky had his motor built for this kit, so there was probably no testing done on the stock engine. at least not on sticky's car.

        No point in putting a YSI on a stock motor, you wouldn't be able to run enough boost & the blower would be really underspun (he's running like ~18 psi on the built/Low Compression motor). Most of the 650 kits using the V3 blower (ESS-650, Gintani Stage 2+, VF650) put down 560-580 WHP depending on octane & the exhaust combination their using. Seen a few rogue cars hit 600 WHP, but that could be a result of optimal dyno/dyno conditions.

        They can get you over 600. How far you want to go is up to you.

        You'll want to build your motor when pushing past ~600.

        Honestly, it's pretty fast at that power level. Not much can touch you.

        Yes there was and my car ran a stock internal kit as well.

        my bad, i thought you only had the YSI on a built engine. sorry.

        The YSI was only run on a built engine but just pointing out there was plenty of stock internal testing.

        Additionally, it's annoying when some people (not saying you) comment without having any actual experience. Gintani's new kits will use the bracket on my car meaning it is much stronger and less susceptible to flex. You can also size whatever blower you want so if you want a T-Trim, V3 SI, YSI, whatever, you can use it without having to buy a whole new kit. The manifold is the same for each.

        And does this upgrade work with the MSD8x? So 1000wtq in the cards?

        I don't know. I highly doubt 1000 wheel torque capability.

        That would make the 1200 GTR transmission sound silly for 25k wouldn't it.
