On Friday, June 17th - we opened our doors in collaboration with MFest to a friendly BBQ and dyno shootout, making for a casual event with good people, good food and fast BMWs.
AE Performance also showed up to offer a helping hand and show an overview of their M3 Performance Exhaust system as well as Akrapovic graciously providing their exhaust stand to display the M3 system along with new carbon tips being released shortly. At about 5pm, it was time to begin dynoing. With 16 cars already signed up - there was very little downtime in between cars. A number of supercharged M3s showed up, along with a Cobra SVT and Savini's own Murciélago to add to the lineup.
Results are as follows:
Jason's ESS equipped M3 pulled off a 550whp/354tq with a custom (and very loud) Arqray exhaust setup to set the bar high. Constantin's G-Power M3 ran into some boost issues - but will be back to the dyno soon with results from an earlier session posted.
Our own VF Supercharged M3 eventually took top HP honors cracking a 531hp
1st run, with subsequent 549hp
runs shortly thereafter.
After a long night of runs, over 50lbs of beef and dyno after dyno - we finally wrapped up at about 3am with the last run. Good times were had by all. It was great seeing familiar faces and meeting new ones.
Special thanks to Chris and everyone at MFest whom were able to make this happen, your help is what made this a success.
