On Gintani's heart breaking dyno (which reads ~ 5-7% lower than a DynoJet), my car with the standard stage 2 kit put down 485whp with 91oct and methanol. After the fuel system upgrade and tuning it made 501whp with 91oct and methanol. Then, after having Gintani build me custom Forced Induction spec headers and exhaust and tune it once again, the car made 517whp on 91oct and methanol.

Currently, the car holds the record for the fastest Supercharged E46 M3 from 60-130mph. This was achieved with the basic stage 2 kit and some MS109 race fuel, before any of the additional upgrades. The time achieved was 7.84 seconds, which is identical to the 60-130mph performance of the 2012 ZR-1 Corvette. With the upgrades Gintani has added to the standard stage 2 kit, there is no doubt this time has been reduced even further. More info on the record run here,

Looking to get $38,000 OBO for the Car.
