Not doubting you or anything, but is this the E55 AMG? I thought those are E60 M5 level cars. So does this imply that a ESS SC E39 M5 can walk a E60 M5 easily?

why wouldn't it be able to?

E60's have 507 bhp and less than 400 lb/ft torque whereas Raza is probably at 550 bhp and 450+ tq

The newer style E55's are around 470 hp which is probably what Raza raced.

I need to get myself this kit.. I know that it's capable of beating the E55 and E60. Just by how much a how easily I am not sure. However, in one of Gustav's videos, the ESS E39 put quite a distance on the E60 with headers at speed. In any case, glad that you have it running now and I am sure the kill is just the beginning of the "rewards" to come.

The E39 M5 with our kit would have no problem taking a stock E60 M5.

It's also good to know that the stock clutch is holding up nicely. Another expense to maybe not have to consider immediately when/if one decides to go for the kit.

E60 M5 will be released early next year. We are also working on a NA package for it that will be out later this year.
