The San Diego BMWCCA group just held a "dyno day", and my M coupe came in at 218 hp / 225 lb/ft within about 15 minutes of a sharked coupe that, I believe, produced 222 hp / 228 lb/ft.

Admittedly the output from our motors can vary enough that the "gain" of 4 hp and 3 lb/ft is a useless comparison, but the interesting result is the increase in torque between about 2,800 and 4,000 rpm, right in the area where you would notice it most on the street or powering out of a turn on the track.

Let us know if you do it.
