    • A visit with Maximum PSI at Bimmerfest and quick interview - Discussing E85 plus upcoming Stage 3 and Stage 4 built motor S54 turbo setups

      I had the pleasure of meeting the guys from Maximum PSI at Bimmerfest this year. I met Mike and Luke and told Mike I was from BimmerBoost.com. Mike seemed pretty tired (likely from working on the car for the show) and drank his coffee while Luke was more than happy to do a quick interview in the car and go over the features as well as answer all my questions. I tend to ask a lot of questions very quickly and Luke was happy to answer them all.


      Now what we have seen thus far is Stage I and II turbo setups on the stock DME from Max PSI on the E46 M3. In Stage II trim the car has shown an impressive 697 wheel horsepower on MS109 race gas. They also are already in the 10's in the 1/4 mile with the with the car. Now I was sure to ask about the timeslip and if they planned to hit the strip again as it looked like past the 1/8 mile the car had some issues killing the top end. I was told the car was pulling timing and they would be heading back out as soon as it was possible. So expect to see more timeslips from the Stage II setup soon.

      Now, what I was pleased to learn was that Stage III and Stage IV built motor setups are next on the agenda. 697 wheel on the stock motor is with MS109 and they plan to match that output with the Stage III on pump gas meaning 700 whp all the time. The Stage IV setup will go beyond that with race gas and E85 maps. What that puts down we will just have to wait and see .

      Quick video below along with pictures from the Max PSI booth. Thanks again to Max PSI for taking time to answer my questions and for blazing a new trail for turbo E46 M3's.

        I want to keep my smg, but if I take it to the track I will never put down times like a 6MT for an e46 m3.

        True unless you do euro launch control and beef up your subframe...

        I have csl software and subframe reinforced. Just contemplating the swap for overall use.

        If your goal is 1/4 mile it will be hard to beat the 6 speed manual.
