    • Naturally aspirated BMW E92 M3 with Gintani E85 tune runs 11.6 in the 1/4 mile and hits 122 mph trap speed

      There was a time when people (dumb people admittedly) said the E90 and E92 M3 4.0 liter S65 V8 was 'maxxed out' from the factory and could not run 11's. Well, not only is a bolt on E92 M3 capable of breaking into the 11's in the 1/4 mile with bolt ons it is capable of mid 11's at over 122 miles per hour.


      BimmerBoost member @gzim335 set some very impressive times on the strip recently and a new naturally aspirated trap speed record for the S65 V8. Here is his mod list:

      2013 E92 M3 DCT
      Gintani tuned on E85
      American Racing Headers full exhaust system
      Eventuri CAI
      Macht Schnell pulley
      Volk te37sl 275/40/18 r888
      Passenger and rear seat removed
      250 pound driver

      Look at his slips:




      Who ever thought a naturally aspirated E92 M3 would be trapping over 122 in the 1/4 mile?

      Excellent numbers and there is even room to improve in the 60 foot.

        That's really impressive. Even the Audi RS4 can't do that. Best i've seen is a low 12 outta the NA 4.2FSI

        Another ____ (Fill in the blank) record at Atco, lol - it's the fastest track in the country for everyone. Need to be an asterisk next to Atco times, "Not indicative of what people will run elsewhere".

        +1000

        Good track prep and Low DA are what makes it so great...

        Track prep is something other tracks could do but just don't.

        The low DAs help considerably
        (1) Atco is only 33 feet above sea level
        (2) Atco is located in New Jersey which benefits from more colder days than California for example.
        (3) Pressure and Humidity play roles too but i believe the DA is most impacted by Temp and Elevation

        You sure love those high revving V8's. Who can blame you?
