360+whp Dynojet - who has done it?

My goal is to hit a power-to-weight ratio of 10 to 1 (measured at the wheels). Since my car weighs approx 3600lbs I want to make at least 360whp as measured on a Dynojet without F.I. and with 91 - 93 octane pump gas.

Who has hit 360+whp under these conditions? What mods did it take to get there?

Help me get some power I am sick and tired of seeing C63 tail lights

Even with 360+ whp you will still see C63 tail lights. If you want them to see your tail lights, then I suggest you hit a road course.

Been there, done that

I don't want a C63 but I do want more bolt-on power.

Proven solutions? TMS pulley, AFE intake, GIAC software, Supersprint cat-back...what else for some added power

C63's are quick man....but I would still take the M3. If I wanted super fast I would have purchased the Z06.

On to your question hit up a dynojet in your area first and see where you are baseline....then we will know what gains you need.

your location says "cool" so I'm not sure if they have dynojets there anyway

Impressive dyno collection. Nice that you have taken the time to compile this list.

Maybe my 360whp goal doesn't make sense. Let's look at it another way...

I want to add at least 25whp over a stock M3.

With any luck my planned mods (TMS pulley, dry filter, GIAC software and Supersprint cat-back) will get me there. I would consider removing the secondary cats but I don't want to touch the primary cats. This is because I don't want added noise or smell and I already feel bad enough for how un-green the M3 is

Unless you take out the cats you'll have a hard time getting there. Tune might add 10-12whp. Filter, pulley and axle back exhaust add pretty much nothing.

My 100cell cats don't even smell that bad. I barely notice it. Full Akra exhaust and Powerchip tune will give you 40whp+ over stock.

Full exhaust + tune is where the real power is at from my experience. Pulley/filter is icing on the cake but not necessary IMO.

That is a big power claim. How many times has it been verified?

Get a 335 and tune it. You'll get 400whp with a tune, down pipe, intake and exhaust. Though you will need some race gas mixed in.
