My 2011 M3 wasn't to far off that..here is my car with only 1500 miles on the clock, completely stock.



I think I am only running 220E at the time...My torque numbers are pretty much the same. However, this was done when it was only 85 deg. F.

My car is getting updated at the dealership does that mean I'll get the 240E DME software?

If you're getting updated within the last week or so, it's very likely youll get 240E. Just flashed mine with 240E and trying it out. So far I'm not impressed over tuned 231E. But only the dyno will tell.

So should MY13 m3 with the 240E software expect stock numbers closer to 365HP like the OP dyno results?

Hey mike my car got updated yesterday at the dealers, why aren't you impressed with 240E? Anything different you can tell right off the bat?

I want to see the delta I can get with the mods on top of the blower. I'm cautiously optimistic that I can gain another 50 - 75 RWHP with the exhaust, meth, fine tuning. Thinking 510 wheel with just the blower and 580 when all is said and done.
Oh man, my fault! I overlooked that you are MW. That definitely explains the extra couple whp

That actually sounds like a great progression of dynos and installation. It will be great to see what great effect the freer flowing exhaust will have when boosted.

I can't wait!

Geez! My '08 with tuned 231E and bolt-ons made ~10 WHP more than that on the same dyno!

BTW, out of curiosity, did you consider a GTR or anything like that?
Thanks...yeah the other alternatives were the 911T, GT3, GT-R and maybe RS5.

SAE is very roughly about 2-3% less than STD. They are methods of standardizing uncorrected, real world, actual that day results to a comparable power level by adding or reducing power to what it would be under certain air density (temperature, humidity, etc) conditions. On a cold day, a car will actually make more power -- what you feel in winter is real. And on a hot day, the car will actually make less power -- and you feel that also. Rated engine power is just output under standardized conditions.
Hopefully all M3's can upgrage to this software and make the same power as I did.

Will definitely post my progress including all my little tweaks at the end.

It would be terrific if upgrading to 240E yields more power. Someone needs to try this.

Is the new "240E" actually ISTA Daten 47.1?

Nice numbers for a stocker! Looking forward to your review once the ESS S/C is installed! I'm sure you will be hunting down all kinds of cars to compare against! Maybe I'll come find you with the 1M one day!

It would have been nice to have a rematch against you with my M3...but ironic isn't it that now I have the blown S65 and you have the twin turbo N54!

Well I had both the blown S65 and twin turbo N54 when I ran you but now I only have the twin turbo N54. Good Stuff!

Baller! What do you have in mind for the motor besides the tune/exhaust?

Great numbers, I wonder if the 240E would make any difference in my 08 M3...

I put down 361WHP/273WTQ on a Mustang dyno a few weeks ago before I updated to 240e.

I'm kind of iffy on those numbers, other cars later that week were fairly spot on, but their OBD2 module was broken when I was there and they were calibrating the dyno based on my gearing/revs.

So my plan is to get on a Dynojet that I know and trust (Carbconn in Kirkland, WA) and I'll report back.

Find a Dynapack if you can. More accurate.

Better for tuning, more 'accurate' meh. Dynojets are the universal comparator and Dynopacks/Mustang dynos can be altered too much to fudge numbers.
