    • M3 vs. 335i or S65 vs. N54 the final battle - $5k to the N54 that beats the BimmerBoost.com supercharged E92 M3 in a drag race

      BimmerBoost.com poked fun at the N54 over the years and this back and forth N54 I6 vs. S65 V8 raged for over a decade mostly in good fun. It is time to finally put it to rest as both of these platforms are well past their prime. BimmerBoost.com is inviting any N54 street car to a $5k drag race at the BoostAddict.com Drag Day on May 5th.


      I'm putting my money where my mouth is. $5k to the N54 STREET CAR that can beat the BimmerBoost supercharged E92 M3.

      I have asserted N54's are dyno queens. I believe the N54 to be an inferior platform. I believe the N54 is nothing more than a BMW value tuning platform. I believe the N54 sounds worse, performs worse, looks worse, and overall just sucks compared to the E92 M3.

      Come prove me wrong.

      The BimmerBoost.com E92 M3 is a street car. A stock internal, factory transmission, factory rear end, full weight E92 M3. It will smack your N54 down in a drag race, straight line, or on the roadcourse. Period.

      Any N54 that is a full weight street car on the factory transmission is welcome to challenge for that $5k. The BimmerBoost N54 forum users can pick their representative right in this thread.

      Those that say a drag prepped N54 with a 9 inch rear end and Powerglide swap or dedicated 135i drag car should race just prove the point that street N54's can not even match a stock internal blown M3.

      What does the N54 need to put up? What do they have to wager to lose? Nothing other than the entry fee everyone pays. The satisfaction of proving yet again I am correct is more than enough for me.

      So who wants to step up? Or is time for N54 fanboys to finally admit the truth?

        Who knew an M3 with a supercharger was such a challenge. Facebook comments would have you thinking a 335i with a tune is putting football fields on me.
        Like i said restrict mods, whatever man itís your event with your money on the line so you do you.

        they arenít the same chassis and you know that the M3 is the top of the line e92 chassis and comes factory equipped for motorsport racing the 335i does not, and no the 335i is not modified from the factory for racing Click here to enlarge

        Can the 335i make up for itís inferior chassis? Sure with weight reduction, oh nope you restricted that.

        For clarification purposes are n54 cars with factory pumpkin with upgrades internal LSD disqualified? Meaning factory ratios, but obviously LSD not open diff cars?

        He said n54, factory trans, and full weight. I think everything else is fair game?

        What? Mostly it is the front and rear subframes that are different along with CF roof. All the M3 suspension arms bolt right up.

        Not sure why he is poking his nose in this. I don’t go and $#@! all over his sales threads, I help him.

        If you're going to call people out. Make it even. You have LSD, let them have an LSD, forced induction, stock engine. This is a battle of N54 vs S63 isn't it?

        So if this is a N54 vs S65 competition, why are you trying to limit them to stock trans/rear end? As long as the car is full weight and streetable (IE: No glides) I don't see the issue.

        Never said they can't have LSD.

        By the way, LSD only helps with the burnout. Read how differentials work.
