View Full Version : 393whp/423wtq (STD), expectations definitely met :)

Here is a link to a previous post discussing previous run and estimates for this last run:


I did 353whp/386wtq (STD) then with the following:
PROcede V2 2.0.2 @95%
Forge DVs
Temp: ~90F
Gas: 94 Sunoco

Now my setup was:
PROcede V3 Stage 2 map
UR CAI + UR Catless DPs
Autobahn Exotics catless exhaust
Helix FMIC
Forge DVs
Temp: ~85F
Gas: 94 Sunoco


A whopping 393whp and 423wtq Not only have the peak values increased, the car pulls a lot smoother with V3 now and has much more power in the upper RPMs (take a look at the graphs, ~60whp more than prior to going catless)...Obviously to take advantage of this top end power increase, you have to be running a proper tune for a catless setup and be completely catless instead of just DPs or exhaust....

I'll add the graphs in shortly...Unbelievable numbers for pump gas...I do have some very minor issues with V3 at the moment (get a half-engine light very rarely without any codes and had only one rough idle on cold start), but I'm working through it with Dustin@vishnu on it...

I've done my first oil change at 9,500 km and the oil was extremely dirty and black....suggest anyone modding/tracking the car to do this more periodically than suggested service intervals (twice during the suggested oil change interval)....

After the dyno I went to the Cayuga race track and best I could do was 13.08s@108.1mi/hr in the 1/4mi with 60ft of 2.1s. My best time with the previous setup (in the old post) was 13.68 in the 1/4, similar 60ft. My launch/shifting suck and I'm working on them. I just found out how to power shift on MT so I'll be trying that next time. I know I've been losing a lot in between shifts as I was shifting the regular way (letting go of throutle in between shifts). Any tips here in regards to launching/shifting when doing 1/4 miles for MT?

Graphs added, here is a description:

1st graph: my best run vs. stock on the same dyno (stock run was done ~55F, mine was ~85F), STD numbers
2nd: same as 1st graph, only SAE numbers
3rd: Compare between V2 + UR CAI + Forge DVs that I had back a month ago or so versus now (check out the top end increase) being catless, Helix FMIC and Procede V3 (SAE numbers)
4th: Comparison (SAE numbers) of 1st run back 2 months ago with V2@95% + Forge DVs + UR CAI (lowest numbers) against same with added UR catless DPs and Helix FMIC(medium), against last run with everything PLUS V3 Stage 2 and AE catless exhaust

Also, last attachment is are my datalogs...note how nicely 15psi holds with V3, no spikes...i think Forge DVs help to steady boost as well a lot...


EDIT: Added a pic of this little monster ... BE AFRAID!

Those are amazing numbers, congrats! Do you remember what your mph was on your 13.68s run? The mph is what really shows the HP, not the times.

Who put on all those parts for you?

I can't speak for him, but I installed all the (above mentioned) parts on my friends' 335i... an afternoon with some beers in a garage and a motormaster took kit. It was pretty easy actually (downpipes excluded).

there is not much to say

love the car 400whp wow

12 sec is there just need 1.8 60ft

with that much hp u should change ur oil more often.....imo

is this 6spd manual?

07-11-2008, 02:34 AM
yes, 6MT...i changed my oil at 8500km, recommended is at 24000km;)

Nice numbers

The only thing that I'm not crazy about it that you make peake power a hole 1-1/2 rpm before red line and the rest from there is down hill. Looks like the turbos are running out of juice.
If they can get you a more streight line up word curve right to the end, you will see a stronger car in the end
