I ran a modded E39 M5...

A few days ago I did back to back runs against an E39 M5 with Intake , Headers , and Exhaust. Both runs from ~50mph and Both times I let him do the honking as soon as we went at it I started to pull all the way to 140ish and by then I was 4CL ahead according to him. I didn't know who he was at the time but I was able to find him via M5 Board "kill section" and then he told me to call him the Next day and then we spoke and he told me he was really surprised that my car pulled so strong especially on his modded car. After I changed my Air Filter from ITG to BMC I noticed my car rips to redline so effortlessly I really don't regret buying it and recommend it highly(obvioulsy I don't think I gained alot of hp but I do think my ITG was hurting me more then helping me No question about that).I wanted to know if anyone knows what kind of power theose cars put down with mods like that? I know stock they're around 345whp and trap about 108mph in the 1/4 mile.I asked to meet up again for more runs to film but I guess he's kind bothered about it and declined.

YUP don't call bs cause you don't like the results that pretty childish theres no point in making shit up.I want to run him again and film it but he doesn't want to now.BTW thats an E39 M5 not the V10 just so you know.Also he claims he didn't take DTC off as if that helps in a straight line run lol well neither did I.

I'm not sure to be honest I have to re-dyno my car but the last dyno I got was 342whp 406wtq it could be a fluke tho so i'll redyno somewhere else.

No BS there he really pulled on me ( and no excuse for that)...I was impress on the torque on Jon's car (pretty strong) and the Mods he did...I just got my mods in and the software/ engine has to be tweaked especially when installing headers on our cars (e39 m5) you loose a bit of torque but gain alot on top end ...on the second run he pulled 3-4 car lengths and around 120 mph i started pulling in closer and closer but traffic hits so we had to slow down and also forgot to turn the sport mode on and the dsc off...hopefully we can do another run sometime and i'll make sure i'm not hauling a set of wheels/tires and I'm not with a passenger telling me to stop speeding ...

I don't have the dtc but the dsc and normally when it is turned on... basically the dsc is too intrusive and prevents you from putting more power to the wheels (brakes and corrects) it is best on wet roads but not on dry and no excuses here...don't worry you won that run and i'm not bothered by it...
