Finally put the ///M3 on a Dyno

Finally got the M3 on a dyno today. Been needing to get a basline reading before I start putting on my engine mods. Unfortunately I couldn't get it into dyno mode. I tried all the button holds and ignition turns to no avail. Oh well, I'm still putting down some good power for 6200rpm. The third run I had let the car cool down a bit so that's why it's lower. How about that torque curve! Mods so far are RE El Diablo rear section and Dinan 3.91 diff. I will update with new dyno runs after each mod just to see what it actually does. Now where's that dyno limiter off switch!

Finally got back to the dyno and this time got it to redline. Thanks to all those who told me how to disable the "dyno limiter". Since the last run I've had the vanos completely replaced (both sides), new fuel filter installed and valves adjusted. Only performance upgrades so far are a Dinan 3.91 diff and RE El Diablo rear section.





Next run will have AP headers, Euro200r section 1 and aFe intake installed
