In Reply to: Info for those not satisfied with 400 HP.. posted by Tom on June 23, 1999 at 05:30:14:
: A car-modifier specialist told me that when you remove the electronic protection of the M5 E39 engine (and speed limiter), the engine has 450-480 HP. This seems obvious when you see the low yield of the serial engine (80 HP/litre, M3 100 HP/litre)
: BMW locked it at 400 HP, being afraid to not have enough reliability with this car.
: M5 E39 owners, why not 80 HP more ??
