First Dyno of our F90 M5

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Now that we have put some miles on the car we decided to put it on our Dyno Dynamics to see what power it is making in stock form. The car has 99 RON fuel (93/4 Oct) and was dyno'd in 4WD mode. The dyno figure given is in calculated crank BHP and was done in shoot out mode so all the parameters are locked down.

Please bare in mind in our experience Dyno Jet figures are usually 11-13% higher when we have tested the same car on both types of dyno.

Killer power for pure stock. I used to own a DynoDynamics Dyno. Heartbreaker as compared to Dynojet. Much better for tuning though as the load control is awesome.

For those of us too lazy to watch the video (or have a VPN blocking it at work), what are the results?

630 WHP 1st run
629 WHP 2nd run

......it's roughly a 700 HP car.

And now do some Dragy/Vbox runs lol

I know a few cars tuned and times still suck. Does not translate to real world/ Road

Let's see!

Forgive me, I'm so used to seeing WHP in a dyno result. I had the sound down. My bad. In that case the HP being advertised is somewhat accurate.

Have done some vbox runs already. Best so far was 8.4 60-130 MPH. Will get the some vbox and dragy graphs up soon.

In Europe people are used to seeing crank figures. We usually show both but for the purposes of the video just showed one.

Very true! Love my DynoDynamics in shootout mode. Who needs variables, right?

We don't, the dyno does that.

TBH I haven't extracted the wheel data for these particular runs as it was not the purpose of this test. It was just to get us a base line before making changes. We go to a Dyno Jet to get wheel power figures so that they are comparable with US figures as they read so much higher than the Dyno Dynamics and then we have to continually explain why our figures are so low.

Dyno's are tools to measure the delta between modifications for us not to say what the absolute power is.

UK Dyno Jet figures at the wheels coming soon.

Examples of other typical M Power calculated crank figures from our Dyno Dynamics in Shoot Out Mode.

BMW E46 M3 325-335 BHP
BMW E39 M5 385-395 BHP
BMW E60 M5 490-505 BHP
BMW E92 M3 405-415 BHP

So its usually in line with BMW quote.

Yes BMW don't have enough models so made a new one.

Typo - my bad. The 3 and 4 happen to be next to each other and I pressed the wrong key.
