: I went to sharked.com, and they claim 19 peak hp increase and 16 peak trq increase. I know that the JimC is very good throughout the powerband, but the peak is much lower. Can you give me any insight?
First, are you talking about 95 or 96+?
Second, notice the stats at www.sharked.com are at different RPM points than the ones I quoted (which are at: http://www.bonnevillemotorwerks.com/e36m3-dyno.html BTW). So you're looking at two differnet points on the HP & torque curves. The numbers I used were MAX GAINS, while the www.sharked.com numbers might be GAINS AT MAX (HP or torque)?
Third, I notice on the www.sharked.com page that the numbers are the same for the 95 & 96+ data. Doesn't seem right to me - maybe there's a mistake?
And finally, call Josh and ask him what the difference is between the numbers on his site and the dyno chart on JimC's site. Or email JimC and ask him. Either one knows more than I do :-)
Hope that helps,
