    • 6-speed manual E92 335i breaks into the 10's - 10.9@128

      You might be saying, aren't there are a handful of 10-second N54's? Indeed there are but only one manual example from someone called Shiv @ Vishnu from way back in the day. It is joined by this E92 335i running hybrid N54 turbos.


      The mod list:

      - MMP Stage 3 turbos
      - Custom IC, exhaust
      - Charge pipe by Performance Boutique
      - EOS direct port kit
      - Fuel-it! Stage 3 pumps
      - Full e85 with a wedge map

      The 60 foot is the key:


      A 1.572 manual launch is phenomenal.

      Bias-ply radials make that possible and are the drag tire of choice (or should be) for a manual looking to get quick times.

      Regardless, this is a manual 10-second E92 335i with hybrids.

        That launch looked awfully soft. The shifts were terribly slow as well. Nothing about that looked like a 10 second run. I’m a little confused LOL.

        If it is indeed bias-ply (conflicting info) it will absorb a bunch of shock making it look soft. That's the whole idea for getting an awesome 60 foot.

        Anyone know if this car has upgraded axles and/or LSD?

        Well if it was a post shif bog and not a $#@!ty shift, itís still amazing he ran that time with such a big delay in power. As far as the launch, the car barely even moved for the first several feet. It definitely didnít jump off the line like Iíve seen other 1.5x cars do. It looked slow (but obviously was not).

        I thought the same thing. After watching it again, it came out of the hole pretty good, but that shift bog was terrible.

        Yep, the slip tells the story; great 60í foot. Just deceivingly smooth, I guess. I canít help but think this would be a 10.5 car if they could get rid of the shift bogs.

        He said on Facebook that it's a stock rear end and stock axles.
