    Mike,

    I ve worked a lot on my E46 M3 twin turbo on the dyno. Maybe 2000-3000 dyno runs. Was able to see 997 whp on dyno dynamics by 2009. Thats like 1250 whp on dyno jet.
    Stopped dyno runs as the dyno straps damage M3' wishbones after each run.
    Imagine a set of lower wishbones and a wheel alignment after each dyno run....Too expensive.
    Thats how you strap an IRS BMW on dyno dynamics.

    Hit the road and with the E46 M3 we made 4,23 s 60-130 mph. Stopped for 14 months as my newborn took most of my time.
    Now we are working to hit sub 4 second 60-130 times. I do pray in order to hit sub 4 sec.
    In the last 3 years we made many changes and the power "should" be over 997 whp on dynamics.

    With the fashionred E36 M3, I only brought it up to 666 whp @ only 18 psi and @ 7200 rpm.
    660 whp was so easily done.
    Raised the boost and made a couple of runs up to 800 whp on dynamics. Thats like 950 whp on dyno jet.
    I stopped working on dyno as the way we strap the car is damaging the lower wishbones of M3.
    The straps damage the lower wishbones after each dyno run.

    We decided to hit the road with the E36 M3 fashionred.
    First weekend E36 M3 TT was promising, but the intake manifold's welds cracked.
    Second weekend E36 M3 TT was promising, but the intake manifold's welds cracked again.
    Third weekend we had no issues and my 60-130 mph times were low 5seconds.
    Fourth weekend we hit 4.49 s 60-130 mph and stopped at that level.
    To be honest, after 4 or 5 weekends, not 6 weekends, we hit 4,49 seconds 60-130 mph.
    This 4,49 s was attained with the experience I got working on my E46 M3 TT.

    I ve sold my dyno and I need to go and find dyno outputs.

    Regarding the DakarGelb M3 TT, it was dynoed by 2006.
    Stock it makes 220 whp.
    Twin small turbos it made 320 whp with twin GT22s.
    Its got loads of torque low down. Feels like a modern day diesel bimmer.
    I may bring my dakargelb M3 TT to dyno soon and will post graph by then.

    Mike,

    this is almost 3 years old.
    Max we saw on dynamics has been 997 whp.
    If you see the mid range is very weak, this setup was PEAKY. Not good for a road car.

    These runs were made in shoot out mode, the green colored letters are an indication of shoot out mode, where
    the dyno cannot be tweaked.
    Since that time, we worked a lot on E46 M3, a lot and I think we are over the 997 whp figure.
    Most essential part is that I was able to improve the low end power in the last two years.

    I am not after peak power as peak on a road car is useless.

    I was after mid range and peak power at the same time.

    I stopped raising power as the added power causes ONLY wheel spin. Traction traction.
    Still working on traction, the moment we improve traction I ll see sub 4 s 60-130 mph.

    I can build a tubular top mount tubular manifold for M50 but it will take 2-3 weeks time. If there is a ready tubular top manifold I will buy it. Or else I will build my own tubular manifold.
