    • New overall 60-130 record achieved by Mikewads for the E92/E9X M3 - 6.23

      This M3 of mine continues to impress me. The S65 engine and DCT are just amazing! I think the DCT impresses me the most since it's been able to handle every bit of power that I throw at it without slipping.

      The cold weather in the Southeast has enabled me to achieve some great 60-130 mph times this week. I'll start with the results of the ESS VT2-600 supercharger only run (no nitrous). 27F / full weight / 93 octane.

      6.87 secs in 1011 ft




      After that run I just had to try it with nitrous. So... I went back to the shop, warmed the nitrous bottle to 900psi, and installed the 100 shot nitrous/fuel jets. I was unable to engage the nitrous in 2nd gear because it would just blow the tires, so I waited until I shifted into 3rd gear (you can actually hear the switch in the below video). 33F / full weight / 93 octane.

      6.23 secs in 904 ft

Most of us call ourselves enthusiast so let's act like one and just be happy for other member's accomplishments.

        Great job Mike! It's nice to see people pushing boundries with the S65. Nice to know these motors can handle all this power. I can't wait to join the SC club soon.
        Well said! Some healthy debate is good but it is sad some guys are disrespecting his thread and this achievement.

        Yes it's very sad, but I just stay clear of the drama and post my times.

        How's that kit working out for you ? Obviously good considering the times ...
        How many miles have you put on before and after the blower ?
        I have a 2011 e92 that I purchased 3 monthes ago and after seeing what your car does ... Well I'm starting to itch ...Click here to enlarge
        I've got 8600 miles on the car. About 4000 of those are with the supercharger. Once the your M3 starts to feel a little slow you will know what to do next!

        In all the commotion I completely forgot to add this to the 60-130 list, list updated with both runs.
