TT RS: 145.2HP/L
Lancer Evo: 145.6HP/L
GT2 RS: 172.2HP/L
Yes, I realize those are stock, and don't require meth, etc, etc, but Shiv's 335i is still a stock engine short of the turbo. Pretty incredible.
Personally saw a GTR make 832 whp on a Mustang dyno. That would translate into 243HP/L using your conversion rates to bhp. And that's also on a completely stock block.
Which means that in terms of hp/l, the Vishnu 335i is barely behind what GTR's are maxing out at on a stock block (granted the GTR's are still twin turbo) but that says something about the N54.
