you are completely right, i had to source the brackets from a company and calipers are identical for M5 f90, m3/m4 G80/G82, X5m/X6m just X5m/x6m comes with plug and play brackets from factory. i will add some pics once i will take the wheel off there is a huge impact on brakes with these calipers

I think usually the max we can get this engine is around the 700/750whp mark without upgrading turbos, as I've seen on mutliple builds and dynos.

The thing with launch control is it only activates once it hits like low+/mid rpms with turbos kicking in, so maybe a brake/gas take off without activating launch control. Kinda sucks, hope some company makes something, all these companies are so behind in launching products...

If we can do 2nd gear launch like the Supras I believe it will reduce the load and will be having a better times.

I think we can, other day I shifted to second gear and launch control activated.

I didnt send it but I think I will try tomorrow and see the result if the rain stops by me.

There's an m3 that cracked 800+ on a dyno...it also ran a 9.7. X3m running 10.2 is probably 800whp also

I follow the guy running the 10.2 and his X3M is stock turbo with a Visconti E tune so likely closer to 700whp. He had all the seats pulled for that run

Idk his ig claims 800whp...vis tuned the 800hp m3 and its also e70 tune. I doubt 700 with 200lbs of seats gets you low 10s

700whp is roughly 800HP which is what he claims.

I think you'd be surprised how much the stock seats weigh (rears and passenger). I plan to pull them in the near future and weigh them but they certainly aren't light.

I will agree with you, those in the rear are heavy, we had to take those out for low pressure pump. Most likely for the next race i will have those out

Sick build! Thanks for sharing. The idea of a X3/5/7 with this kinda power is appealing.

Would love to know what 100-200kph time or quarter mile trap speed one of these supports at this power level.

After upgrading to Pures it put down 800whp

Ahh ok. I only knew it was on stock turbos the last I checked it so that would make more sense. That's awesome power
