: 11.4, sounds too fast for a 740 with a normal supercharger :)

: Any detail info available? If it's true and street legal I will definitely get it for my 540.

: I never dreamed that my 540 could be as fast as my Supra, maybe it will be true soon. :)

in between 11.7 - 12.3 with OEM final drive (6 speed, 2.82 final drive, correct me if I am wrong). If you go with 3.64 you drop 1.5 - 1.7 seconds. 740i (not 740iL) is 200-250 lbs heavier then 540 (we are talknig 4.0 V8). This leads me to beleive this VERY HAPPY guy numbers.

Stepan.

P.S. After driving SC E39 540 since September, RMS is ready to release 7.5 psi boost SC system: 420 h.p./460 lbs. I actually did some "grass root" research on Dinan and RMS systems for 4.0 V8 and 3.2 I6 engines. I tend to beleive RMS claims.
