    • DCT E90 M3 + supercharger = Easy 10 second car - ESS-Tuning VT2-650 M3 S65 V8 supercharger kit runs 10.89@127.8

      Some people still seem to doubt how potent the E9X M3 is with a little forced air. What you see here is an ESS-Tuning VT2-650 supercharged E90 M3 breaking into the 10 second 1/4 mile range with no drama. This is a four door car that can be daily driven but provide exceptional performance when necessary. This is not even the strongest supercharger option out there for the E9X M3's but what the run shows is that 10 second performance from an M3 with a supercharger is easily within reason.

      Expect to see more E9X M3's breaking into the 10's which is hardly considered a rare or difficult feat for the platform any longer.

There is no surge or drama, it just hooks and goes. I feel sorry for any e9x m3 or 135/335 that runs him. That kit plus the dct is unreal. I can't believe how well that car drives. I also can't believe that's the base kit, when he ups the boost, it's going to be sick



        That's kind of the point. It really doesn't matter what an N54 or other M3's do as they will never match the power delivery or feel.
        fixed for ya

        Are you continuing to hold the lever and not touching the brakes?

        Agreed.
        10's are impressive.......in 1992. Click here to enlarge

        Anyone who races, or even hangs out at the track, needs to see 9's in STREET trim to respect a car in 2014.....especially one with an aftermarket supercharger.

        I dunno. It's cool to see a 'street' car run 9s, but nearly all of them save GTRs and Gallardos, aren't running a 'street' trim. They're running $#@!ing drag radials and race gas or E85. If that's what it takes for you to 'respect' a car, then you're a $#@!ing tool.
