M3 GTS dyno?

Never have seen a CRT or GTS dyno around and not sure how that is possible on google. These are the uber performance minded guys or shops buying these so I would think someone would have tried a dyno. Willing to bet they put down a good 430 to the wheels and the 450 stated hp is a big old underestimatation given how much faster this thing seems to be then a normal m3 (I know itis lighter etc as well)

Think the few tests that were done on this car were high 3's/low 4s to 60 mph/100kph, high 8s 0-100 mph, high 11s/low 12s for 1/4 mile. Nurburgring time of 7:48 (vs 8.05 for regular M3 manual gearbox). Seems like performance is completely consistent with 444 hp/ 7.6-7.7x weight lbs to hp ratio for straight line and in addition to the power/weight advatanges the GTS has better suspension/aerodynamics vs regular M3s for track performance. Doesn't seem to be underrated power wise. Interestingly, if the F80 M3 is truly lighter vs the E9x and has around 450 hp, one could expect almost as good performance from the F80 M3 as the E9x M3 GTS and CRT (obviously, larger size, more supple suspension, and lack of aggressive downforce generating aids will work against the F80, but should be pretty close in theory to GTS/CRT).

Considering normal m3's with a catless/HFC exhaust and an air filter make 375whp, I do not think a 4.4 L bored out factor motor is making the same power even with its cat's in place.

370k Euro after being converted from 846.872,81 Turkish Lira.
The GTS costs 150k Euro in EUROPE where the Euro is used and with no conversion...

Comparing it to normal m3 does nothing for the comparison. All because it has a larger bore/stroke doesn't mean more hp. It will have more torque. Simple 15pct drivetrain loss puts the 4.4 motor at 378 whp.. The car has only 24 more hp at the crank which is approx 20whp...something you won't notice on the street. What you will feel is the additional torque provided by the 4.4 over the 4.0. Loose the cats on this motor and yes... It's over 400whp

Always wonder how DTM guys were able to squeeze 480hp vs 45ohp(GTS) at the flywheel without stroking the motor. Insane (I believe they have restrictors too. ? more power possible). Insane. Even though the topic of how effiecient our intakes has been beaten to death I can't get enough of the Motorsport24, DTM, & ALMS intakes. Truely makes me wonder. I guess I'm just going to have to blame it all on their elevation in europe where they are being dynoed, and I can be in peace
