    • What does 9.5 psi of boost get you on an S85 V10? A new world record. Gintani supercharged E63 M6 puts down 710 horsepower to the wheels

      Congratulations are in order on a new S85 V10 horsepower record set by Gintani today. They took an E63 M6 with their Vortech V3si based supercharger kit to the Dynojet at Specialty Z in Chatsworth, CA and by changing the pulley to crank out 9.5 psi of boost from the supercharger the result was 710 horsepower to the wheels. This tops the previous record of 646 wheel horsepower which Gintani also set in February of this year.

      That was done with the same kit but at 6.5 psi of boost. With an increase of 3 psi and a 91 / MS109 fuel mix along with meth injection the result is another 64 wheel horsepower. That is just about 20 wheel horsepower per psi of boost increase on the same blower. Obviously you can only push so far on the stock motor before you risk the engine and see diminishing returns as the supercharger is pushed out of its efficiency range.

      It is very nice to see the S85 V10 finally showing what it is capable of with boost. A built motor with a bigger blower will likely easily eclipse the 1000 whp range but that is something which will come down the line.

      Great work by Gintani pushing the envelope as always.

        The crank is priced well when looking at similar quality products.

        Yes, this will be insane. It's going in a E46M3 GTR type build. :-)

        And that engine build sounds glorious. I hope it's so loud the M executives hear it roar.

        Why is the S85 crank so much more than the S65 crank?

        Does Gintani sell their units in kit form ie systems not fitted in their own shop?

        Yes. Although I don't think they do so yet with the S85 kits as they are so new. The last thing you want is some idiot installing it himself, f'ing it up, then blaming them all over the internet for some kind of failure.

        Best to go with a Gintani dealer.

        SC are not that hard to install though. Bracket, belts, intake manifold, blower, intercooler. lol

        It's always easier to type the install.

        Trust, it's not that hard... The injectors would probably be the hardest thing for me.

        Yeah it isn't the end of the world or anything but I get why they want in-house installs and tuning.

        Hell yea, it's their product. They want to make sure there no discrepancy along the way once it comes out of the box.

        I'm looking forward to a feasible dct swap. Smg is the limiting factor in these cars and a faster shift is more valuable than 40 hp imho. Theres a guy with 650 rwhp on a maha dyno running a relative low boost built motor for a while now. A dct setup would be great for gintani. But I'll believe it when I see it. I'd love an article about their progress though. No lie.

        I agree and look forward to seeing it myself. Not going to doubt them as if anyone can do it I'd say it would be them.
