GD that seems awful? Not trying to be a dick but that seems low. Also was that a dyno of your cobra the afrs aren't right at all. Not to mention that motor needs more cam, it's dead up top!

yeah my m3's numbers are way low. I'm hopeing its due to my exhuast and tune and not due to some old damage from the nitrous.

I'm not too sure what's going on up top with the cobra. maybe it was falling apart because it was running so rich.

Please show me at least 3 other N/A e46 M3s pushing those numbers... most are lucky to be even make it to 330hp.... Plus I may be totally wrong, but Brad didnt you get your car actually tuned? Not just the cable+software from EPIC?

Its like saying one 600cc motorcycle is better than the next. In the end they are identical and comes down to the driver

They are not identical at all. With the money you spend on the bimmerworld tune you get one re- tune or atleast you did when i bout mine.

You pre dyno with all adaptations cleared. Send them the file with a mod list. Then they send it back. You then dyno again and send it back with the new file. They tweak it amd send it back again. The evolve tune does not do this, it is a true canned tune. The epic is a bit more, thus you get more from it.

Your m numbers are very low. I would have a compression test done just to be safe and re dyno at modified.

I mentioned how bimmerworld did it above. Part of my power is from the bw exhaust. Ive seen numerous nasa gts cars higher than mine.

Not 100% true. You in fact can do this with Evolve... They also do live remote dyno tuning.... only difference is again it cost more than EPIC

I was meaning that it is included in the list price. Its standard, not an added cost like yhe evolve. Don't get me wrong, the evolve tune is one of the best on the market. I just know that every winning racer in the nation is running the epic tune and racers only care about winning they don't care about anything else. if something gives them the most power that's what they're going to run, I know they've done their research.

Max speed of 50mph and no brakes would make that one sketchy ride!

So if I were to get another M3 for daily/track purposes what would you all suggest. E46 or E92? GO......

Understand that the extent of modifications would be Seats/bar/harness, suspension, wheels/tires.
