    • Pure Turbos Stage 2 BMW 2016 DCT F80 M3 annihilates a C7 Z06 automatic

      Wow is this is a beatdown. It is somewhat surprising and the difference is so large. The Z06 is a monster from a roll even in stock form as this example especially with the quick shifting 8-speed automatic gearbox.


      It doesn't matter. The M3 abuses it. The first run is just a beatdown and the second run has the Z06 get a better start but it only hangs in for a couple gear changes before the M3 pulls away.

      The M3 is stated to be on methanol and pump gas with bolt ons.

      Note: Turn sound down to not be annoying by the camera rattling on the glass.

        Not saying this didn't happen but aren't those vettes about 11.0 in stock form?

        With that rattling I can't tell for sure exactly what's going on. The M3 has a solid mod list but to walk a C7Z like this seems a little skeptical.

        That's how I felt too but the Vette owner confirmed it.

        Then this M3 needs to hit the track and some 1/2 mile events.

        Agreed.

        That mod list probably makes for a 725-750 WHP M3. The Z06 is probably down 150 WHP and is only 50-100lbs lighter. Ricer math seems to support the outcome seen here if the M3 is driven really well.

        The Z06 isn't any lighter. Maybe 25 pounds.

        I am the M3 owner. It was a surprising result for me as well. I sent the message to Sticky from the owner who is a friend of mine. Quote "Dude its not even close, got the Gopro of and dashcam. He is at least 8-10 cars on me on a roll. lol"

        I plan to hit the drag strip next week. I have not dyno'd yet but I was 570/638 tq on stock turbos with E40/meth etc. I was thinking I am closer to 650 and have about 100 whp on the Z06.
        Was getting some timing drops during these pulls and running about 28 psi target so may try E40-50 and add a psi or 2.
        Again sorry for the vibrating on the window. Thought I had it tight enough but the mount must of shifted at the hit.

        You better be pushing more than 650 with that mod list LOL.

        Exactly. To run away from a C7Z like that he has to be putting down more, 700ish.

        Always like when the faster car lets the slower car make the hit first. Allows you to see just how fast it is. Otherwise you always wonder if the other guy was late on the throttle. Click here to enlarge

        I agree, I like to see the walk-by, it puts the power in perspective.
