I put the blower on with 3,000KM and it was game over! I dyno'd before SC and got 343WHP and 248WTQ. I have not dyno'd since the blower but typically the DCT put down about 550-580WHP and 360-380WTQ with the ESS 625+catless.
Rob can shed more light on the specific numbers but you need to drive a SC'd M3.
The power of a FBO+meth n54 can really eff up your expectations of any car but a blown S65 is just a whole new level!
Yeah that's what I'm hoping; I want to make this car go as fast as it sounds.

Those HP numbers are certainly impressive. What kind of rear tires are you running? 285s? Edit .. n/m just saw your sig
