Nice video...to see the speed increase by 10-15 kph per change is insane.

ESS has released the most information thus far.... I think its because of pricing. Every company is waiting to see what the other company releases as far as pricing. I think some companies dont want to release a price that's too high and then the other companies release a slightly lower price and they loose all their business.

Thats pretty quick but..... i used to have a 1041rwhp 04 GTO. I had a built 402ci with twin t-70's. When we dynoed the 1041rwhp there was a skip in the dyno because the torque and HP was too much for the dyno and the car was litterally burning out on the dyno. It put down about 1250tq... but i cant find the other dyno on my comp right now. I miss that car sometimes

I call BS.

He is running on rollers. No way 100-200 km/h is overcome that fast. Ever heard of wind resistance.

not impressed at all especially with the obvious million dollar price tag. you guys want fast? Get a evo and put 10 K in it. Power will hook, you will feel every pound of torque until you run out of balls to step on the brakes.

60K M3 + 10-20K SC kit does not impress me that much.

What should he expect? lol put any label or pass any kind of judgment on me lol thats fine but I am probably the only one thinking realistically here. I feel so bad for the old farts that dump tens of thousands without knowing wtf is going on with their car.

However, I dont want my statement to take anything away from PG. He has the most badass e92 m3, period. And his experience in the industry is far beyond mine I am stating fact over fiction from my experiences and theyre usually facts For a supercharged balanced V8 engine with some trick valve timing (and open up those butterflies) 100km/h (60kmph) to 200 km/h (120mph) did not happen that fast in that video with that car...Yeah, watching the number rise up quickly is fun, but in reality its not fast. And whose to argue here, I stated my opinion on a part that hasnt even finished R and D if I am not mistaken.

BTW if anyone has a problem with my avatar they can go have some 151 cause you need to get up off your computer chair and go have some fun
