as the title reads, need dyno #'s for both cars, has to be from stock cars, need RWHP & RWTQ #'s

EDIT: for the 540i I need #'s for Vanos & non-Vanos engines

Hrm.. can go by what the manual tells you..? I want to dyno the car but its quite expensive.. best deal I got was at a place in the same plaza I worked they wanted $100 for 3 runs..

thanks Bill, I assume these are from your car when it was stock, those numbers are RWHP & torque right? not crank HP


Thanks
Clarence

I think bmwtips.com has some dyno numbers.. I'll post if I come across them. I remember seeing a bunch of cars' numbers all together, some modded, some stock, different years. Jimmy540 was included in the list.

Jimmy's 540 is so overated, his car only has about 450hp at the crank, if you really want to see a high HP E39 540 you should check out www.540is.com his car is rated at about 476 RWHP

540is is selling his supercharger system, I beleive he got an M5 now and is in the process of twin supercharging it. If im thinking of the sale guy.

I know Mike, I eventually will, but I drive the car everyday in traffic & also I drive in the city a lot, I get cramps a lot in my clutch leg :D

EDIT: I got the info I needed, if anyone else wants some dyno #'s here they are, you can also see some MAX members on that list, & you can also see why I think Jimmy 540's is overated

That's right Clarence, red is stock, blue is with GruppeM CAI, to the wheels (rwhp).

thanks again, I really wished I had enough money for your Gruppe-M I'm so short on cash it isn't even funny, I'm just buying a K&N drop in for now before I get more cash going, atleast I know your Gruppe-M is going to a friend of mine
