Any ideas on this result....just before my car went on an M3 3.2 went on and had 320bhp. Mine came out at 480.5bhp anf 350ft-lbs torque!!!!!!

What mods have you done??
Levi2010-08-29 20:29:34 +0000 #3
480 PS is possible, but only with good mods.
Donbona2010-08-29 21:45:51 +0000 #4
Im pushing 460 with every mod apart from pulleys

I'm interested in the mods as well.. currently own a e46 with 300WHP. I also just purchased a 2011 light weight e92.

What is the point of putting the angry "Read the thread" guy at the beginning of your post? Are you disappointed with 480hp? Is it that your car is all stock and you think the reading is bogus?

The way I read it, the dyno result is not even close to accurate.

If a stock (assuming) 3.2l M3 pulled 320hp (typically in the 220-230hp range), I would think the dyno is screwed up in some way. I am not dyno expert, but it appears the 3.2l M3's reading is about 100hp too high, again, assuming it was stock.

I am again assuming he is questioning wtf is up with the dyno, not reporting that his car is an ubber-beast. lol

OP, correct me if I am wrong.

Maybe the Op decided to not write back...

First time I see a Dyno Dynamics test showing bhp instead of whp... mmm, something's not right.
spyderco102010-08-29 22:37:47 +0000 #10
i don't understand the question
kaykay2010-08-29 22:11:45 +0000 #11
Did the dyno automatically calculate bhp instead a of rwhp???

480bhp with mods - I think that's up there, but can it be achieved without a SC?
