Ok see 4 digit number means 1-2-3-4...see 4 numbers.. and 700whp is not 4 digit number. By the way why would you beat up your M3 like that lol.

you need to learn how to read and how to understand.

This thread should be titled "Where you shouldn't strap your M3 down from for dyno pulls"

You don't have a dyno to back up the claim as strongest M3...700 and change WHP does not equal the strongest E46 M3.

I'm not hating...just stating the facts.

Care to explain that tire damage? Looks to me like it was carved out using an ice cream scoop.

Did that happen on a dyno? That sucks...those arms are relatively cheap but those tires aren't.

OT...the operator has always used my rear trailing arms when I've dyno'd...is there a better place? I don't think I have to worry about bending them but I'd like to know if there is a sturdier point to install the strap.

Looks like you used the wrong place for dyno straps. If the wishbones were broken via power your subframe/driveshaft would be ripped into pieces.

You have to use t hooks to strap the car down to the dyno. If you grab the control arms, they'll bend, as shown in the pics above.

DA Motorsport... your posts would have some credibility if you could actually back up your claims with facts instead of making these wild claims, unsubstantiated, about the mess of an engine you're still trying to fob off as an M3... does than thing still even have it's aircon??

The engine bay is a MESS on that car.. it's not an M3 any more.. it's a dyno queen. Also, it's NOT as powerful as the M3's HPF is producing... at least we laymen think so since we've SEEN proof of HPF's builds but none of yours

Sorry dude, this thread is a

big

fat

FAIL!!!

4- i really dont care what you say, or negative comments as yours. i know what i achieved. i feel so comfortable.

If you don't care what anyone else thinks of your achievement, why do you feel the need to come here and boast about it?

You don't have a 4 figure dyno yet...you're just estimating, guessing, taking a shot in the dark and last but not least, pulling it out of your

Post up the 4 digit dyno if ya got it

Are all Turkish people liars? you have no proof of 4 digit HP....proof is a picture of the dyno screen, a printout of the dyno run, a video of the dyno pull, etc....all you have shown is a couple of bent control arms....not impressive...oh, and I know not all Turkish people are liars, I have a few Turkish friends

Thanks for posting these pictures.

The same thing happened to me. I told the dyno operator that whatever he does, do not strap onto the rear control arms!

So I cruise to the front and read car mags in the lobby until they call on me to say they are ready. All of a sudden there was an "snap" and then a "Uh oh." I went to see what happened, the worker was not told by the owner what I had said and strapped the rear control arm. It actually snapped into two pieces and that was just from him tightening the strap.

So after that I bought some T-hooks which perfectly hook up into the area where the pucks are located under the car. I have a friend with a 996whp BMW who uses the T-hooks every time without any issues. You might know of him. He ran a 9.9X@152mph in the quarter mile. What was it that you ran again?

Anyway...Can't wait to see the video when you try it again with T-hooks. Good luck! You have a very nicely built monster there son.

Agreed, t-hooks are the way. I have had this happen to me twice and went with UUC arms and changed the way I strap. But you still need to watch out for lazy dyno operators.
