    Video of a GIAC Stage II B8 S4 walking away from a from a tuned N54 335i 6-speed manual (6MT) - B8 S4 versus 335i

    This is definitely a fast B8 S4 and the same vehicle that pulled pretty well on a bolt on E92 M3 at a recent air strip roll on racing event. So, it's faster than a bolt on manual M3 but what about a tuned E92 335i? The result is not pretty for the 335i either with the S4 walking away. Fortunately, the race is not just an exterior view but also features a picture in picture view from the S4 to give perspective. The race is a half mile long from approximately a 40 mile per hour roll.

    Unfortunately, the mod list on the E92 335i is unknown other than it is said to have a Stage II tune. Whose tune? What fuel? What supporting mods? Well, these all make a big difference. Fact is though this GIAC tuned car walks away from this particular 335.

    The S4 has the Stage 2 software, AWE-Tuning intake, BCS Automotive exhaust, AWE-Tuning pulley, Evolution Racewerks charge cooler separator, 104 octane race gas/map, and spare removed. It is an S-Tronic car.

    No we are not sure going based on what GIAC said.

    something doesn't seem right...I mean you throw on some double-sided tape faux carbon fiber trim in the car. It's modded, no? Was this clip from an Audi forum?
    It definitely got away from the 335, thats for sure. Click here to enlarge

    I'm sure he's on a forum, just not this one. If he showed up here the sharks would circle and eat him alive because he is too weak to be a member of the community.

    From what the owner told us at the event:

    - Vishnu piggyback (running "around 20 psi")
    - Upgraded intercooler
    - Upgraded downpipes
    - Dual cone intake
    - 100 octane fuel plus methanol injection

    We can't officially release the figures yet since the pulley isn't available yet. But Stage 1 put down 400-410 at the wheels on our Mustang dyno. This is more than the Stage 2 335i's we have dyno'd, although the S4 will put down less torque.

    The pulley'd S4 is very fast, as when the car was Stage 1 at the last Shift Sector it was losing by multiple car lengths to Stage 2 N54's. The upgraded pulley and Stage 2 software is a night and day difference.

    I'd say so, that $#@! moved out nicely, like it should walk away from single turbo 335i's nicely. I cant see that unless there is really THAT much headroom in that blower.

    No, it is certainly no match for an upgraded turbo N54. It pulled a few of the stock turbo N54's that were running on race gas, but lost to the ones running E85 (Wedge beat it by a good margin).

    Once we get the car to the track, we are expecting mid to high 11's (remember, dual clutch with launch control) and a trap speed of around 120 on race gas with full interior.

    Ok, that sounds about right. Fwiw I would expect the 335 in the video to trap 118ish with the mods you mentioned. Good power out of the S4 regardless.

    So Stage 2 with pulley should be substantially more than 410?

    Horsepower will see a decent increase, but I expect the torque to have the most noticeable increase. The low end power is greatly increased with the addition of the smaller pulley. We are just waiting for AWE to release the pulley and then we can proceed with releasing all of the software and information.
