You can't compare different cars on different dyno's really. Also depends what gear the dyno operator dyno's the car in. On a dyno dynamics the correct gear for a manual M3 is 3rd gear and for a DCT M3 is 4th gear. If you dyno a manual M3 in 4th gear the BHP is about 20-30 BHP higher.
An M3 without a decent full exhaust system is never going to compete in terms of power with a car with one if all other mods are more or less the same.
