I just saw this. I am guessing that it is an M3.



I'd be interested to hear about the details.

9psi is a lot for pump gas... I think I would be able to live with 6psi and only 560-ish rwhp

Wonder if they're using the DCT or 6MT? Also interesting to see how either one is handling the torque.

Edit: Noticed the torque was only 390 or so ft-lbs, so either tranny is probably fine.

I don't think its a M3 e92, I think its a 335, The rear skirt is not M3 and the front guard does not look flared enough. Also its on the 346 forum and the owner does not say M3 he just says new 3 series!

The redline rpm gives it away. That looks like a nasty piece of kit.

I emailed him.... They are not giving any more info (release date, pricing, etc.) out. All he told me was that everything is done. All they are doing now is durability testing. So im guessing they are going to drive it around for a while and see how it takes the extra HP and boost. I didnt expect for the motor to be able to take 9lbs on pump . He said after the durability testing, whatever that consists of, they are going to start production.

lol wut

you are smoking that funny grass if you think a 335i motor could rev past 8000rpm without exploding into tiny bits.

also, look at the dyno chart. that is not a turbocharged engine. the power and torque curves would look completely different.

and lastly, it says 7psi. that's less boost than the 335i makes when stock.

I also confimed with him that it is infact a e92 m3 like we all didnt know already .... He said they are expecting the release date of the production kits to be sometime in the summer of 09
