Forgive me for my stupidity but I thought the American version of the E46 M3 came with 333hp...?

The torque numbers seem a little low. I've seen stock M3s around 250-260wtq

the stock engine has has 260ish tq at crank, if the cars make 250-260wtq it is a BS reading dyno plain and simple

What type of Dyno are you using? I wouldn't be so fast to call bs. There are a bunch of dyno threads floating around that can give you an idea.

when i say BS, i mean no doubt that the dyno said those numbers but more that it actually means nothing in relation to reality

ONE LOVE,

Awesome results ESPECIALLY for 91Octane! Pretty crazy how two different dynos can read wildly different.

Would you be willing to send me your DRF info so I can add it to my DynoDatabase on M3Forum?

319WHP and 252WTQ SAE is VERY impressive for the bolt-ons and tune that you have. I have dyno'd and analyzed data from quite a few different E46 M3s and I haven't come across too many cars that put down numbers like you did with similar mods such as yours. Everyone must keep me in mind that it's not necessarily about peak numbers, but the change in area under the curve. If people aren't too impressed with the peak torque figures, I can bet that after 5000RPM where a stock E46 M3 falls in torque drastically, your setup tries to stay as flat as possible!

Congrats again on the stellar numbers! There aren't too many NA E46 M3s that put down big numbers like that on the EAS dyno!

(What is the DRF? New to the dyno lingo) and yes, Ill send it over no worries.

Thank you for the kind words. The car feels amazing! I love it. For example, about a month ago I ran the car on a different dyno with the same mods/weather/fuel and the car made 326/251.... Every dyno is different. EAS has alot of M3s on their dyno so its a good reference. I dont think I will ever do any other power mods. Just suspension, driver mod, and aero... (I track the car as much as possible) ....... Here is a pic of the graph from the dyno BEFORE EAS.....

(NOTE, this was 2 days after my Evolve tune was uploaded. Not sure how the adaptation was. Eas was fully adapted. Again, different dynos)

Hey whats up. I put up a post yesterday regarding low end torque on after market exhaust systems. I curious to know if the evlove tune helped you with low end torque because i placed a RE Exhaust in about 3wks ago and my car has no pull what so ever.

I have really large headers and no cats! Before the Evolve tune, my low end felt like something was missing. After the tune it felt great. Its not a huge jump in power (these cars just dont have Tq period lol) but the car feels more "tuned", smooth, and keeps pulling. Its an expensive tune but well worth it in my case. I may have felt a greater difference because Im catless with a very open exhaust! Hope that helps!!! FWIW I would not drive an M3 set up any other way. Im in love with my car

What kind of headers are you running? As for the low end torgue my car felt better with stock exhaust on, but i love the sound of the RE Exhaust. I guess i have no choice but to buy Tune. BTW how much is a evlove Tune?

If all you did was put a muffler on your car, I highly doubt you've lost OR gained any power.
