    • 700 awhp X5M? Yep. Pure Turbo Stage 2 upgraded BMW F85 X5M S63U puts down 713 to all four wheels

      An SUV with over 700 to the tires? Oh baby! That is exactly what you have here with this F85 X5M that had its S63TU V8 turbochargers upgraded to Pure Turbos Stage 2 units. The resulting power and torque is absolutely incredible.


      713 horsepower and 690 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. This kind of output raises a lot of questions though.

      Is the transmission upgraded and how is it holding the torque? Who did the tuning? Is this on methanol?

      Hopefully @Pure Turbos can shed some light but there is no denying this is incredible output from an SUV.

        I find this rather hard to believe. Who did they source the parts from?

        I just don't get how an ECU flasher does the transmission work.

        Nizpro says they have upgrades but I don't know if this carries over to the F85: http://www.bimmerboost.com/content.p...ble-the-torque

        Basically, it seems DME Tuning is not telling us who the source is so you have to go through them.

        IG makes it hard to get this kind of info and use it as a resource easily.

        Their website could use some work too.

        The white car is on HRE s104 so that must be the dyno car, dmetuning probably took a pic of some other car they're making. The comment mesa_eurofed was from the white car pic so his info goes to the white car for sure.

        Both x5M were on the Dyno, the white one is from Georgia, transmission was upgraded by someone, can't remember the details on that, pure upgraded turbos, and tune.
        Black X5M belongs to Dme tuning. Basic mods and tune...

        The white car was at my shop, originally tuned by Race IQ on our Mustang Dyno it made around 520awhp - which reads about 14% lower than an DJ. The owner wasn't happy with the numbers so he sent it up North. From what I am told it did the same numbers on pump gas and 713awhp on a dynojet with race gas. I am nearly positive the car has the stock transmission and it made 713 on 110 and around 600 on 93 octane on the new tune. I could be slightly off on some of this, but I know what it made when I drove on the dyno at our shop
