I'm sure I can get a blower to put out 1000whp but the car will blow up in a few days. The more power the higher the chance the car will blow. You've already blown up one motor, why not just limit the power to a safe and reliable level? If whp is the goal, why even drive a M3 in the first place? Just get some Mustang or Corvette or whatever else puts out monster numbers. This whole whp race seems utterly retarded...
I think these (I prefer the more common dynojet numbers) are good, reliable daily driver numbers from a kit maker that has a lot of these kits on the road. The OP is running less boost than before with the other kit. I would not hesitate to buy one of the ESS kits.

There is no harm with dynotesting a car or need to comment negatively when someone makes the effort and spends the time and money to run a test and share the results with the rest of us. Here, the improvements over the same car on a dynojet are are attributable simply to the different type of dyno, so I don't see any increased chance of blowing the motor. It is not like the OP put in race gas and raised the boost by 4 psi just to see what the motor would make.

Great numbers, but i find it hard to believe that the car produces 60-70 whp more than other VT-625 kits with similar mods, is this dynopac dyno reliable?

I hear you per, and it's an excellent point, the #'s are optimistic, but you could make the same statement when you compare a DD's to a DJ or a Mustang to a DJ, I've seen 50+whp differences there as well, we're talking different dyno's here and I run Meth which is good for 20+whp simply by turning it on, I promise we didn't photoshop the graphs.

FWIW Shawn Church said that stock M3's are making 350-355WHP on that DP.

EDIT: We were off on the boost log info, I updated the original post and as soon as I get the actual boost logs, I will update it again.

DCT is holding up very well, from what I've read the E9X M3 DCT transmission is actually beefier than the GT-R transmission. Another thing to note is I've done over 50 1/4 mile passes in the car and plenty of spirited driving, never a sign of slippage either.

Bro, your car is smoking fast, I'm not sure people realize how hard it is to get a 6MT into the 7's, in fact even some DCT cars have not been able to crack 7's.

Thanks AK, not yet, but I may try again before it gets hotter out. Have you tried a Vbox pull yet?

If you haven't driven the SC'd ESS M3, then it is ignorance. You should drive one before your formulate your opinion. The ESS kit elevates the stock M3 to an incredible level. I owned a Z06 a while back...and while I enjoyed many characteristics of the car, there were many, many things I did not like. (And I spend a lot of time defending the Z06 - it's an amazing car)

But for me, I like the technology, the driving feel, the refinement the sound, etc etc... Stock just wasn't fast enough. With the SC kit, you'd have to drive one to fully appreciate how well the SC kit compliments the NA motor and takes the car into rare territory. With BBK, SSK and exhaust.... It's just a f*&%ing unreal car to drive.....
