    • JB4 tuned BMW F90 M5 Competition on MS109 sets quickest/fastest platform 1/4 mile record with 10.2@136 pass

      You may recall a BimmerBoost article from early in the year regarding a Russian F90 M5 breaking into the 9's. This was not done on an NHRA accredited dragstrip with proper timing equipment so while we appreciate the effort it does not qualify as the record as records need a timing standard.


      This is now the F90 M5 platform record:


      If you really want to argue about it, then this is the US record or the record on an NHRA accredited dragstrip.

      What mods does the car have? Oh, just a JB4 on Map 5 with MS109 race gas.

      This was the result on Map 3:


      Here is the JB4 map guide as of v3 firmware:

      Map 0: Stock operation, JB4 disabled
      Map 1: Default performance map, 4psi peak request over stock
      Map 2: 22psi absolute boost profile, 93 octane OK
      Map 3: 25psi absolute boost profile, requires higher octane like unleaded racing fuel
      Map 4: Low boost VALET map -- Ideal for when "friends" are driving your car
      Map 5: 26psi absolute boost profile, requires unleaded racing fuel
      Map 7: 27psi absolute boost profile, requires unleaded racing fuel
      Map 8: water/meth progressive map -- under development

      The track is PBIR and you saw this M5 Competition top a tuned Porsche 991.1 Turbo in a drag race last month.

      Is there more in it? Will an F90 M5 break into the 9's on the factory turbos? The answer to both is likely yes.

        That's insane. Just a JB4 and some race gas and it's running old school Veyron 1/4 mile times and not far off from trap speeds.

        Amazing, congrats!

        this platform can dip deep into the 9’s

        BEF
        Drag radials
        pure turbos
        minor weight reduction (seats, etc)
        water/meth

        If I had a little more time dialing it in, I think we could have hit 9's last night.
        For now, we'll let the rest catch up Click here to enlarge

        Geez... crazy. It's nuts what I had to go through to get 9's on the F90. This just does it without blinking!

        It just took a couple logs back and forth for me to get it down to the 10.2 run Click here to enlarge
