Forced induction is everywhere it seems. From BMWs standpoint, those turbos go a long way to reducing fuel consumption while keeping the power right where we want it, so its a no brainer for them. But as we all know, the aftermarket gives a damn about efficiency and the use of turbos is meant for one thing only. POWER.

Manhart's BITURBO monster setup is the same as we've seen published previously here and here. The difference here is that its now been driven and tested by professional journalists.

Just to recap the basic idea is this: Take the FI engine from the X5M/X6M, transplant it into the E92 M3, do some ECU work and then throw on a new exhaust. This is a tried and true method of tuning that has been done to many an M3 throughout time. Typically some unit from an older sibling M5 is taken and put into the M3 chassis to make a beastly combination of power and handling.

The added benefit of a setup like this is that BMW has done alot of legwork of integrating turbos onto a V8 for them already. Much of the headache involved when adding a turbo to the stock M3 V8 may be reduced.

What does InsideLine think about this car?

Quote:
The straight-line performance of this thing is just ridiculous. It's not just the top speed of over 200 mph, either. This engine is insane from the moment we touch the throttle pedal. There's a guttural roar from the exhaust and the car just bolts forward.
Quote:
Manhart Racing tells us that the V8R Biturbo can get to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.4 seconds, but it's still down to the traction rather than power. Drive this car with a clubfoot and it will pop the rubber before the car hits triple digits. As for the top-end speed, Gunther is looking to achieve 210 mph, but it's the in-gear acceleration that really blows the mind.
Quote:
The overall handling balance doesn't seem to have been upset by the powertrain transplant. Apparently the car weighs 3,417 pounds, some 200 pounds less than a stock M3. The car wriggles at the rear with the torque reaction from 697 hp, yet the nose cuts into the apex of corners on command with no sign of washing out.

That kicks ass, thanks for posting.

I used to do engine transplants all the time in my Mustangs, but I could not imagine taking on a project like this. I guess if I ever mess up my motor out of warranty I will check into something like this.

EDIT: After thinking about it, if I were to do this, I would just pick up a used 330 and make the transplant, no point in messing up an M3 since it's an entire drivetrain transplant..motor and Transmission. I would also leave the BMW eblems on, the ones on that car are ugly IMO.

The 330 and m3 only share a handful of parts outside of the basic chassis and interior.

Cool to see that the balance is not upset as much as I thought it would be. That's the true magic in the M car. Power is useless unless you are able to use it. Thanks for posting!

True, but the frame is the same, just different body panels. When you build something like this, in order to do it right, the suspension, brakes, etc need to be replaced/upgraded in order to handle all the new power, so in he end very few original parts still remain.

Yea, and I would have liked to see more clips of the car hauling ass, not 500 views of the different emblems. They need to find an R8 5.2, or a Lamborghini on the autobahn and race it...that would help sell the car

That hood bulge almost needs an athletic support. It's like the Dracula from Family Guy.

Too bad it's an automatic -- they need to develop a DCT for the 4.4L motor

That's what BMW is doing for the M5 and M6, hopefully.

Amazing outputs but that power dome hood is way overdone. It does not flow with the car at all.

If I was to do an engine transplant on my M3, I'd rather go NA rather than FI:
