    • 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.

        Not sure but I'll take the V8 and E92 body all day every day.

        Waiting on more details from Gintani. If the motor holds with what they are doing then I'd like to crank up my supercharged setup...

        Once that thing spools, the torque curve is no joke!

        Why did they stop 1000 rpm short of redline?

        Can we get the full graph?

        4.5k rpm to hit 600tq. Are they limiting the boost down low on purpose or is it that laggy?

        What size turbos is it running?

        Nice numbers regardless.

        I think that car is a 6-speed, not sure.

        The Specialty Z Dynojet is old at this point and has a bad tach pickup.

        Wait until you see the Mustang graph... it's a thing of beauty.

        They could easily do 20+ psi but the motor wouldn't like it.

        It's why I crave a billet block but probably time to move on from the platform as it isn't going to happen.

        It doesn't use tach pickup anymore.

        Curve is a curve, that outline shouldn't change unless tuning did. The only thing that will change will be the numbers and where the car will start making power since it's a different dyno.

        Not what Alex said and not what the curves reflect.

        nice curve, so flat and linear. Wonder if they can hold that all the way to redline
