    • Gintani sets new twin turbo E92 M3 S65 V8 power record with 859 rear wheel horsepower pull

      This is the strongest turbocharged E92 M3 out there and there are not exactly many turbo E92 M3's to begin with. Why? Few tuners have been able to turbo the S65 and no tuner has accomplished what Gintani has with turbocharging (or supercharging) on the platform. They certainly deserve to be proud of this achievement and continuing to blaze the trail for the S65 V8.


      858.9 wheel horsepower and 649 lb-t of torque at the rear the wheels at only 15 psi of boost on pump E85:


      Yep, it's a very efficient motor.

      This is a built motor but what recipe Gintani is using to keep this thing together they are not saying.

      Additionally, keep in mind they ran the car in 90 degree summer weather. There is more in it but they are keeping it conservative for now.

      More details to come.

        S65 stock motor's curve pulls to redline but the top-end seems to lack efficient pull/power compared to a modded TT N54.

        The torque from a modded turbo N54 seems to give it the advantage in top end racing so would a Twin turbo setup on a V8 S65 motor give it insanely more top-end power?


        650 wheel torque from a S65 really is $#@!ing impressive and almost $#@!s on their own Gintani superchargers/ESS kits.

        The questions is the cost of it and whether its worth it but god $#@!ing damn this is good

        I've never seen this. N54 turbo curves tend to fall off. They have the advantage down low, not up high.

        Most forced induction S65's are supercharged and the curve just gets stronger as more torque is added the more the motor is spun.

        I was originally talking about FBO + tune M3 vs FBO 335i

        If you watch most 335i drag/street race vids, you'll notice 335i's pulling like butter on cars that were supposed to be used for top-end. I know M3's can effortlessly keep pulling above 130+ at a progressive rate from its top end power, however a certain modded 335i can keep up very well and sometimes surpass it.






        I think it was the drag race videos I was watching and noticing of the 335i/s would just pull on "supercars"

        To see where the FORCED induction S65 stacks up against the 335i's:

        This is a vid of a pre-lci 2010 M3 with a 625 ESS kit blowing its motor from a high roll raceClick here to enlarge against a PT 6266 335i




        Here's an early drag race (ofc Vishnu was archaic and the turbo setup wasn't efficient) but you can still see that it doesn't fall out and starts creeping back in.






        However, this video shows where a ESS supercharged E92 M3 really shines Click here to enlarge
