    • 60 mph roll - Gintani Stage X DCT E90 M3 vs. 6XX whp C6 Z06 vs. 6XX whp CTS-V vs. ~1000 hp 997.1 Turbo

      E9X M3 performance gets dismissed because the cars do not put up huge numbers on the dyno. Instead, they perform where it matters. In the real world. The Gintani Stage X supercharger kit is simply the strongest supercharger setup you can get for the M3's S65 V8.


      This race illustrates the Stage X in its best environment, on the highway.

      The cars it runs are not slouches with a 6XX rwhp C6 Z06, 6XX RWHP CTS-V, and a 997.1 Turbo cabriolet that is said to be between 650-1000 wheel.

      The owner is known to sandbag and based on the performance of the 997, it is closer to 1000 than 650. AIM Performance would know exactly as they built it but they will not say.

      Regardless, the M3 gets a late start but quickly catches and passes the Z06 and CTS-V to hang with the 997 Turbo impressively for a bit before the 997 runs away.

      More angles and higher video quality would be great but it is what it is:

        No. I'd say close to 700. Right around there.

        looked like the Z and the V jumped and then got out of it. Hopefully they post another pull
