G-Power reveals a new power upgrade for an M product, but surprisingly, this time around it’s a classic: the E46 BMW M3.

Powered by a 3.2 liter six-cylinder engine producing in standard form 338 horsepower, the E46 M3 gets equipped with a ASA T1-518 centrifugal supercharger that increases the power output to 450 PS (331 kW / 444 hp) at 7000 rpm and 460 Nm (339 lb-ft) of torque at 5500 rp – an increase of 107 PS (79 kW / 106 hp) and 95 Nm (70 lb-ft).

With the new power boost, the BMW fans’ favorite E46 M3 reaches a top speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). This enables the M3 to accelerate from 0-200 km/h in 14.7 seconds. To cope with the extra boost, G-Power fitted the M3 with an upgraded braking system with six-piston calipers, 370 mm discs at the front and 342 mm disks for the rear.

    Not to be mean or condescending or anything like that, this is an honest question, why is this news? Horsepower Freaks out of Portland, Or. have been making turbos for E46’s for quite some time. Hell, everyone has. HPF Stg. 1 kit alone makes 518 HP on pump gas. It jumps up to 731 on race fuel! Their Stg 4 kit, with meth injection on race fuel makes an astounding 1117 HP!!!

       Horsepower freaks are not in Europe, where real BMW’s are made and mostly sold. Maybe thats why this is news. US is not the universe :)

      I think you already know that fastest E46 M3 is built in Sweden, at least according to 1/4 mile.

      One funny fact must be told. In Norway, Scandinavia also, VG Motors have taken about 1500 hp from S50B32, E36 you know. They drive 1/4 mile also, making new records and engine is doing fine.

      Cheers from North :)

        Du tenker vel på VS motor? :-) Men trodde de kun hadde tuna s38 (e34 m5) og s85 (e60 m5)?
