Who has the most hp N/A

Hey guys, I was curious how much power the N/A members are putting down with mods? (I'am aware that for the money I'll spend on tuning etc.. I won't make the power I will on an s/c, but I want to keep it all motor)


I'll be picking up an e90M soon, and I plan on keeping it N/A until I sell it, but still want some extra power. So just wanted to know my options.

thanks!

JonMartin and I joke but if you want to really split hairs I do at 407.7whp:



Ironically, we have the same exact setup (minus me having cats still), tune.

In my case:

Recap:

MS Drop in filter
Gintani 18% pulley kit
Gintani Sport axleback exhaust
Primary cat delete out of stock x pipe (Stock secondaries/resonators are left intact!) If anyone wants to sponsor me a real x pipe ill re-dyno it
RPI Scoops
Custom street/dyno tune BT/OE Tuning
93 Octane E10

In JonMartin's case:

Recap:

MS Drop in filter
Gintani 18% pulley kit
Gintani Race axleback exhaust
Both cat deletes out of the stock x pipe
RPI Scoops
Custom tune by OE Tuning
91 Octane

Thanks! I wish I could do the CAT delete and the tune, but am really worried about remapping the software and then having an unrelated engine failure that the dealer blames on that software.

Does anyone make a solid set of headers for the e92 M3?

I remember when I had my s/c'd ZHP, I picked up 30+ rwhp 10psi.

Headers make a huge difference; the car was an absolute beast with them on, I miss it

This car isn't really worth modifying if you don't modify the x pipe or tune it really. Everything around that just makes noise.

Look into an EZFlash sold in L.A. or a CMDflash box if are feeling spendy and want to swap between stock and tuned files.

Headers will not make a huge difference on this car
The OE headers have a great design and no cats attached (unlike e46m3)
So you'll spend a ton of $$$ and get very little if no gains at all.

It'll cost you a pretty penny, but man do the RD Sport Headers look good:



Not sure on the typical gains, but a solid X-pipe will do the job if it deletes the primary cats... For that, there are much less expensive options over headers.

thanks!

so headers are out of the quesiton it seems, so adding an x-pipe and deleting the cats would gain about how much hp?
