Smile South African Dyno Day - August 2014, Photo Gallery

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
BMW Fanatics FR&R Dyno Day, August 2014


Whatsup Bimmerpost

Some pics, a video and some results of a dyno session orchestrated by fellow Bimmerpost member @Arbee a few weeks back…

Please note the dyno is approximately 1,500m (4,900ft) above sea level, so naturally the NA cars are a bit choked…

Also there's an epic video made by fellow BMWFanatics Member Chris dos Santos and some pics I snapped on the day

The black F10 M5 was the most powerful on the day

Cheers Fellas
Bimmer Luv from South Africa :-)

I am amazed at the variation. I just looked at the N55 engines and see stock motors outperforming PPK or two stock motors with very different results. Perhaps there are different transmissions or bad petrol, but still the variation is surprising. Some guys are going to be making appointments to see their SA's.

Greetings to all of you in beautiful South Africa.

My guess is they weren't stock. On the chart they say "None Noted" instead of "Stock" like the E9x M3.

Thanks for the kind comments guys!
Proudly South African!
Car culture in SA?
It's probably as good as anywhere else in the world. We are car enthusiasts, with a passion for cars and sharing all experiences automotive!

Wow Thanks for the Kind Words, Much appreciated

@Driver, yeah I was also a bit confused looking @ the results, for instance the e82 1M does have RB Turbo’s. As @kardboard said ‘none stated’ does not mean “stock”

Another Awesome video Chris made with regards to BMW Car Culture > > >
