The production version sounds a little different as it has high flow cats.

[Sends virtual beer over to Drew and IMG for reaching #stupidnumbers.] Nice work! Makes our jobs a little easier. For example...ring ring ESS, yeah, um, I will take the Drew option please.....what, my first, second, third, and fourth born child....would a lottery ticket for $600M suffice. No, well, nevermind then...OEM is perfectly fine.

Solid dyno - I can't imagine an extra 100whp on my car.

Being that you are in CA, any plans to see how it compares to the new Gintani s/c M3 that was at bimmerfest? I know it has approx 100whp more but it's always nice to see real world performance. The VT3 has proven itself but its always nice to see competition for the top.

Also, have you experimented with higher boost or anything to increase the output? Trying to see where the VT3 tops off at.

Thanks Nik, hopefully I'll run one of the Gintani cars, the DCT YSI setups will easily pull on me, much bigger blower, and much more power. If it's a 6MT, that could be interesting in the first half of the race, but up top the 6MT would pull away, that is if they can put all the power down.

The current blower that I'm using is maxed out, it won't boost more than 13psi currently, so I'd have to upgrade to a YSI, which I'm not interested in, it's too loud, and frankly I don't need to have the most WHP, my goal was a 650-700whp setup that I could drive all the time. But like anyone else who's into FI on the S65 I'm excited to see what the future holds.

Well said, after reading some of the other threads, it is nice not to hear all the ego maniac BS. Much respect!

Dang Drew. Love the paint/wheel contrast. Watched your dyno vid again and now I am second guessing the choice for signature silver on my VS8.2s - 2 years later.

Are those gunmetal? What is the finish name?
