    • Gintani Stage X E92 M3 DCT vs. JB4 tuned F90 M5

      The BMW E92 M3 camera car in the video has a Gintani Stage X supercharger setup similar to the BimmerBoost.com E92 M3 project car. The new BMW F90 M5 you obviously know features a twin turbo 4.4 liter S63TU2 V8 with a lot of tuning potential.


      For perspective, BMS showed a 60-130 sprint of 6.16 with their JB4 tuned F90 M5 on high octane fuel.

      The Gintani Stage X package is tuned for ethanol.

      Kindly ignore the poor cell phone camera work but this highway pull gives you an idea of the performance of a Gintani Stage X E92 M3 DCT. It's almost hard to believe the easy work it makes of this F90 in the first pull.

      In the second pull, the M3 skips a gear after hitting the limiter so the race is closer (old DCT TCU logic) but the M3 still pulls.

      More Gintani Stage X data and videos to come.

        F90 was on 93 octane.

        Hopefully we get race gas rematch.

        The truth is you don’t know what you’re talking about.

        Next lane why? So you can see a fast M3 for yourself?

        You do know this guy trapped higher than you, right?

        This guy isn’t far from you go run him...

        Indeed.

        So when he traps higher and even on a dragy with a JB4 on race gas the F90 traps lower than he did on a strip why do you assume the JB4 isn't working when all evidence points to the contrary?

        That hard to believe a blown E92 M3 is that fast?

        Miki what bird did you hear from that jb4 was not setup ? Im very close with Mike (M5 owner) he was on sauce mode when we ran then went limp mode. We pulled over he reset his car and we did 3-4 runs back to back. And then we spent some time trying to figure out why he went limp and played with his map switching after again.

        Dont worry we will re run once he gets the car 100% again and his limp mode figured out. Either way its a low 130s trap car so we know how it will go. This was just a friendly run with a good friend so he can give his car a few rips as he just had the mods installed.

        Rematch coming soon Click here to enlarge
