    • The Killer Bee - Active Autowerke Gen 2 Level III supercharged 2010 Dakar Yellow E92 M3 S65 V8 hits 632 wheel horsepower

      Yep, Active Autowerke's Generation II Level III E9X M3 supercharger kit is the real deal and one of the strongest options on the platform. As if there should be any doubt at this point but if there was after seeing these results it should absolutely vanish. 632 horsepower at the wheels on the 5252 Motorsports Dyno Dynamics dynamometer. The correction factor used has the dyno reading similarly to a Dyonjet as an E92 M3 baselined 345 wheel horsepower stock.


      Putting the numbers in context shows the Active Level III kit adding just under 300 horsepower at the wheels to the 4.0 liter S65 V8. That is something to brag about. 300+ horsepower bolted onto a 4.0 liter 12.0:1 compression V8 with over 100 horsepower per liter off the showroom floor is special in of itself but Active doing it with a beautifully tuned supercharger kit is icing on the cake. Just look at the horsepower curve and air/fuel numbers. Who says tuning is not an art form?

      Dynographs and a dyno video below. The lower horsepower graphs actually were runs before the 632 wheel number. The car was adding power, not losing it, after subsequent runs as one might conventionally think.

        Regarding: "One thing I find noteworthy is in the video, pay attention to throttle close slowly just before redline!" - what am I looking for, the BOV action? I am just curious what is different/good and/or if I am missing something special.

        Cheers.

        P.S. - that car is nuts, and the color is awesome. I seriously think my next car (depending on the car) will be yellow. I am really liking yellow for some reason lately. Click here to enlarge

        Thanks so much for the kind words. In this vid watch just behind the BOV under plenum and you will see the throttle plates starting to close before redline. It is on the last pull you will see this. It is to ease the bang effect at redline and save your S65. The only downside is you wont get a significant HP spike as it hits the limit, but who drives at 8100 rpm constantly, lol.

        Sorry I took so long. I've kind of added like 30 forums to the network so I've been a *tad* busy.

        Ahh, I see what you mean now, makes perfect sense...

        I am literally laughing at the thought of someone driving at full throttle in 1st gear letting the ECU just bounce off the limiter... LOL - reminds me of something I would probably have done to a rental car when I was young.

        At least the blower handles the situation properly. Click here to enlarge
