    • TNT Racewerks gets over 600 rwhp from a BMW F80 M3 on pump fuel with S55 methanol injection and Pure Turbos Stage 2

      If this does not convince you to run methanol in your BMW what will? The only way to have big pump gas numbers without any E85 locally available at the pump is to utilize supplemental methanol injection.


      Either do that or dial the power down. With 632 wheel horsepower and 620 lb-ft at the wheels (please post the full graph and correction factor people) why would you want to dial it down? Methanol makes this possible on pump gas:


      As for the full mod list:

      - PureStage 2 hi-flow
      - Jb4
      - FBO
      - Meth Kit
      - Stock dct clutch packs
      - 93oct/meth
      - Stock BEF

      Very nice numbers for those mods and numbers that can be repeated daily.

        I need to go dyno my car as well in a week or 2. It's finally up and running and modded out Click here to enlarge Just need to do some on the road tuning and then hit the dyno.

        I have reference of maxed out stock turbos on the same dyno. So will be nice to see the delta Click here to enlarge

        After a M track day, I can't do without instant throttle response. Would this setup keep me happy, or is it for the roll-racer? Want that power though!

        Comparing the curve to stock is the best way to decide.

        Looks like full boost hit right at 4000 rpm in the dyno above. Stockers on my FBO N54 at 20 psi hit full boost around 3500 rpm, nut sure about the M's. An additional 500 rpm for that much power capability is a good trade-off, but you'd probably notice it a little at lower rpms. If you're at a track day keeping the rev's up then probably will not notice, I'd hazard to guess.

        For a given turbo, mods can affect time-to-spool, but normally not the rpm full boost will hit. There's no instant throttle response on any turbocharged engine.

        Bingo.

        My Carrera spools a 1000 rpm sooner than an S55 yet the lag still bothers me.

        So this setup is 100% relying on the JB4 to pull the boost down if there is any issue with the methanol flowing, correct?

        From a roll this car is an absolute beast...only weighs 3,5XXlbs and the S55 is a strong engine putting up with 600-700whp, great pairing!

        only thing its missing is AWD and it would compete a lot better from a stop with the 911 turbo

        I think that's right. They say the flash is the factory flash.
