    • Fuel-It! gets the BMW F98 X4M into the 10's tune only - JB4 S58 runs 10.8@126.3 1/4 mile, 60-130 in 8.51

      Well, it was just a matter of time. Frankly, it is a bit surprising how quickly and how easily this happened despite Arizona heat and elevation. Running 10.88 @ 126.36 in the 1/4 mile at a density altitude of 5710 feet with just a JB4 and some ethanol is simply bonkers in a BMW SUV.


      The S58 motor is the real deal folks:


      Now of course this was not done on a drag strip but so what? It points to the performance capability and what a monster the G80 M3 will be at least in a straight line.

      That is a very nice trap speed too for a 4500+ SUV. A really nice result on a 60-130 of 8.51 seconds.

      Just a JB4 and E38 fuel? Hot damn.
