RK Autowerks S3 700WHP E39 M5 build "BLUBSST"

Hey guys,

As some of you may know michael got in touch with me a year ago about working on his m5. It was never up to his standards and he wanted to change a lot of things. We began the project last summer, and i think it finally ended today. Over the course of that time we added a complete fuel system, oil cooler setup, our supercharger kit, reworked the engine, eliminated the 16 injector setup, and the list goes on. The car drives awesome now, i have daily driven it for a while now and you wouldnt even know its making 700whp!


Many thanks to Michael for giving me the opportunity to work on his car and Salman at Evolve for tuning. Without you two, this would never have happened.

A shout out to everyone else who helped push the envelope. The RK autowerks crew, the guys at Boost Logic, M5board, Eric Nichols and the guys at Automotive Machine and supply, Jeff howerton, the UT SAE crew, and anyone else who has helped me along the way!

Looks great.

Do you have a dyno chart with RPM and torque? Evolve doesn't like charts that don't have correction factors

If you find this post unsatisfactory, please add me to your Ignore List so you will not be disappointed again in the future.

So does this mean that Dave's car is the only of the twins remaining? This one is technically the same but so much was changed.
