Great work DLSJ5!!! You truly are proving M3 is not only a great race track car, but the engine is truly astonishing even for drag racing.
I remember how the E46 M3s needed supercharger + nitrous + stripped out interior + full bolt-ons to break the 12s. A good example was JMWeb's E46 M3 that ran a 11.99 secs with all those mods and 500+ wheel HP.
The S65 is truly an astonishing motor that can get into the 11s completely on bolt-ons. I think it is all in how it delivers torque across the rev range that E46 M3 could never dream of. Great job!
