I don't know what this thread is about and I didn't even read the original post, I just read the title. I recently read a thread over in the E39 section where a guy stated that he beat an E60 M5 in his E39 M5. I loved post #2 in that thread.

For amplification, I will say that I've beaten Dinan Stroker E60 M5's before and have easily hung with ESS VT2 E60 M5's and I am still running a stock ECU tune. An F10 M5 with a legit ECU tune demolished me, and I'm making about 650hp and 600tq to the crank right now.

Who's VT2 did you easily hang with?

The issue is all bolt-on M5's arn't equal. In fact many bolt-on M5's
are barely quicker than stock as the combination of bolt-on's don't work
well together or don't make any power.

The last time I made a custom Section 3, I lost 30whp...!

Running a FBO M5 like a RPI Stage 2 vs a F10 may show a more even
match. Random exhausts with open come filters and random headers
don't cut it.
