    E60 M5 with Evolve Automotive S85 V10 Tubular headers and tune runs 11.6 in the 1/4 mile

    In case anyone was doubting what Evolve Automotive regarding their tubular headers here is proof of the performance. An E60 M5 owner with the Evolve tubular headers (ceramic coated) and Evolve tune ran 11.6, 11.7, and 12.0 hitting the highest trap speed of 121 miles per hour. Excellent ET's but the trap speed is not as good as it could be due to a couple miles per hour being scrubbed off thanks to the shorter gears this owner is running thanks to a 3.91 final drive.

    In addition to the tune, headers, and shorter gearing the car has a full RPI exhaust, RPI pulley, RPI scoops, oil cooler, and ESS SMG software. Impressive results that put the car on par with the new F10 M5.

    The other thing thats weird is how the same car going full out can run 115 And 120 the same day. Then his best et was with the 115 and his slowest et was over 120, did he hit the breaks or something??

    Ya this is a good point I'm not sure how to explain that variance. But the ~120 trap is more realistic.

    I agree the 120 makes more sense but he broke the record at 115, says 2 things, either a timing error with the trap speed or the car is ALLOT faster than 11.6x and he hit the brakes at the end.

    I think it's more likely he hooked so well and probably staged shallow that it scrubbed a lot of his trap on that run.

    It happens, isn't an exact science.

    impressive, i looked into these before my latest e92 purchase and was very close to hopping on one, but the cost of ownership of the no warranty m5 compared to my CPOd e92 kept me away..

    what was the previous NA record?

    I think something is messed up with the timing or he hit his brakes.

    In the 115mph pass he is a full 1.45 mph faster in the 1/8th then mysteriously drops 5.8mph in the back half?

    Awesome car. I'd love one with BMW Perf. seats, 6 speed, light hood/trunk/battery/flywheel painted black on black. A dream of a DD that would be. Sweet passes
