Re: hp mods?

Sure it is....just a matter of how much $$$ you want to spend and how concerned you are about reliablity.

A little spray will give you 600 hp ....(maybe once...lol)

But you can do it...

Honestly I feel it's going to be harder to make big hp than everyone thinks.

Re: hp mods?

You're first boost in power will be on Friday when you hit the m button.
I would not be too eager to get 600bhp from this engine.

Re: hp mods?

Have you tried going all out on public roads with P500S, that is quite difficult: too much power.

Re: hp mods?

Gustav is right, I got wheelspin at 110 mph on a dry bumpy highway recently.

Re: hp mods?

I just wanna play around with stuff like exhausts, cams, etc.. to get it high enough to pass the Gallardo . It is too much power, its because of the tires. Changing them to Pirellis will give a better grip on the car...

Re: hp mods?

It is a standard M5 with 10 000 km on it and was no pre production but a press car.

Re: hp mods?

I would go for a full exhaust and have the chip adjusted to it. Then be happy with what you got. I received info from g-power that they are planning a 5.7 liter 650bhp conversion, which will do the trick.
