Impressive stuff.

Presumably it blesses the M3 with some low down torque now as well?

So what mods are required for the chassis, brakes and suspension to cope with and compliment the power?

Not just some low end torque.......buckets of it. The power is everywhere.

We are fitting Brembo 380mm brakes to this car. This really is required for spirited driving.
The standard EDC suspension in mode 3 copes extremely well with the power. You get a huge amount feedback.

That's the SKI kit, including fitting you would be looking around that price.

In UK pounds it's 10350.

I disagree!

It's because the SKII is just more than enough.

I guess that was the one Carl. I don't think they did another one and didn't let us know!

Anyway, in my opinion this is a a great success technical wise too. I don't think it was that easy at all....

Congrats again Sal/Evolve!

Btw, this might be stupid but does G Power provide a new map for the engine too?

Oh, and other question Sal...is the M3's stock differential better than the Quaife LSD that some of us have?

Very impressive guys, looking forward to seeing the dyno graphs for the difference in power / torque and the spread.

Again, thanks very much for the positive comments guys!

I am unsure if the M differential will be beaten by any aftermarket type. Only time will tell.

As far as comparing this to a GT-R is concerned - it's a totally different thing.

An M3 + an SKII kit can be had for less than 50,000. There is nothing in my mind as reliable that will be as quick or have the level of useable power.

It would be really interesting to know how the other parts of the m3 handle this power boost but i guess that g power thought about it! Anyway, time will tell!

Here is a picture of the actual car taken with my phone. The CF card in my SLR is not working so will take some proper pictures later this week when we will have the carbon arbox fitted (awaiting delivery from G Power).

So much better if the grills were black though

Good stuff from the Evolve boys , it's amazing they have managed to get this far using GPower!
