    GTX 42 turbo S52 E36 M3 with Bavarian Solutions cams hits 953 wheel horsepower

    Now this is what we call some serious bimmer boost, a project more than worthy of recognition and admiration. This E36 M3 belongs to davidtm5 who has a built S52 motor running a GTX 42 with Bavarian Solutions cams which has put down 953 whp at around 37 psi of boost. Yes, whoa. The setup sure looks to be 1000 whp capable and the owner does drag race so the power for an 8 second pass is there. We bow our heads in respect, check out the graphs and video below.

    No, not sure, I don't know why the guy doesn't post full specs.

    This is why I am asking and haven't put it up on the front page yet...

    Ohh yeah, one other tid bit, he's running Eagle rods. So is Boris. So that 1500 hp figure Eagle throws out may be somewhat realistic. Well, more than good enough for my power goals.

    Yes the eagles have landed. I'm happy I have them resting in my motor.

    Whoops, just saw the other thread that this is indeed the S52.

    Freaking incredible... RT Turbo makes a good point about this maybe now being the choice for boost with the o-ring setup.
