Sense of humor required :haha:
Best average of 3 back to back pulls wins. :M5rev:
In one corner we have a stock E60 M5, with a rated horsepower of 507 at the crank (413 whp), certified by BMW's ///M division.
In the other corner we have a heavily modded E46 M3 with a VF Engineering Stage 2 Supercharger kit, CSL headers, CSL cats and Agency Power Exhaust, with a rated horsepower of 570 at the crank (470 whp), certified by VF Engineering.
Please revisit the thread often, as uploading the terabytes of data we have collected takes time to upload to, and have certified as accurate by youtube.
p.s. to those following Darren's latest project, his beast put down 450 whp on a Dyno Dynamics at Classic BMW, the highest whp recorded on their dyno to date.

The first dyno pull for the M5 is done in 6th gear, we know we will find the oem top speed limiter before we find peak rpm and peak whp. Notice what the rear wheel does as the car cuts the power. There are several aftermarket options for having the top speed limiter removed. Darren's M5 for example has an ecu flash by Active Autowerke, which deletes the TSL. First pull at approx 7k rpm shows 432.2 whp.
Part 5 -
Pull two for the M5 (5th gear) = 425.9 whp
Part 6 -
Pull three for the M5 (5th gear) = 424.9 whp
Part 7 -
Pull one for the VF SC'd M3 = 453.05
Part 8 -
Pull two for the VF SC'd M3 = Scott displaying his ignorance about heat soak

3rd pull for the M3 = 425.2
This concludes the video portion of M5 vs SC'd M3 dyno challenge. Copies of comparative Dyno plots will be posted later as a Reply in the thread.
