This looks amazing, and those are some of the most beautifully modded M3's I have seen thus far. Amazing work.

I do have one question, and I apologize for being a n00b but I might as well ask here:
Given that the M3 is supposed to have 414hp, why are the numbers so low? All the M3's are modded to some degree and yet are in the mid 300's unless they have superchargers, is that power that was lost over time, or is this a different measurement?

Be gentle haha..

The dyno numbers posted here are @ the wheel, and the manufacturer's (414hp) are @ the crank.

Thanks Eas! You guys are stand up guys and your customer service and representation is second to none. That's coming from another small business owner

So when's the next one? I think all I'll need is a 100 shot to come in the top 3

Indeed! I guess that the wheel hp is a much more honest and usable figure, even if it is slightly less impressive haha! Are there easy ways to mod the car to get more power to the wheels without doing anything to the engine/exhaust?

Coding would bump up the voltage and fill out the ring a bit on those.

We do that here!

I was looking at the graphs once again and noticed that the first place VT2-600 had a pretty large spike in the last couple hundred RPMs. I also noticed this on some other ESS boosted cars, both E9X and E46 M3s. I don't recall off hand if I've seen it other brands.

Is this characteristic of their tunes or just a dyno anomaly? It's look like it's nearly a 20whp spike which obviously can kind of skew max values a bit.

How much did the torque numbers factor in to the results? Or were you looking primarily at power?
