Current v8 m3? Then the 5.0 is faster. But a 335i with a tune with destroy a new 5.0. People get 80-90whp from just a tune(they can dial in more boost + better fuel maps) on the 335 and 135. I'm sure the new turbo m3 will be about the same.

Dam that's insane 90whp for a tune. That definitely be worth the money.

Even tho there's chips on eBay that'll do that for $50 lol.
I do not condone the purchase of any of these chips.

I'm not sure what M3 it was but stock for stock I was able to pull on a M3. He gave me the finger as I exited the highway. I didn't see the point in that, I already knew I was #1.

You won't get 80whp from a tune on a 335, not without a full exhaust or meth.

335 is not some magic car that defies laws of physics.

Here is a tuned 135 vs stock.



tuned 5.0 will rape 99% of all 335's.

My friend's tuned E92 M3 puts down 360whp. Tunes do barely anything on a E92.

Most tuned 5.0's will be around 400whp and will destroy both the E92 the 135 and the 335.

My M3 feels like it pulls harder than my 5.0. Prolly not the case though. It's a different driving experience though for sure. Makes the 5.0 feel like a Buick suspension wise.
