After the successful BMW M5 Hurricane, G-Power returns with a super tuned up version of the popular BMW E93 M3. If the M5 Hurrican achieved the title of the fastest sedan in the world with its 730 hp and a top speed of 228.4 mph, the G-Power M3 is not that far behind.

The process of turning the M3 into one of the fastest bimmers on earth, is structured on three stages. The production M3 model has 420 hp, but in stage 1, the Compressorsystem EVO-SK I, adds another 105 hp, to a total of 527 hp and 369 lb-ft.
But here are all the modifications done at Stage 1:
Supercharging: ASA T1-17 supercharger including overrunning clutch ASA K05; supercharger lubrication through bypass from motor oil circuit; ultra stiff CNC shaped supercharger bracket system made from aluminium including an extended support-aggregate belt-drive for the supercharger’s drive; pneumatic controlled, engine load related boost control; flow optimized, large volumetric fresh air intake; racing air filter.
Intercooling: Large volumetric intercooler system using flow optimized boost pipes made from aluminium and a large, high capacity air to air intercooler in the car´s front.
Engine modification: 8 x fuel injectors with enlarged mass flow.
Exhaust system: Optimized exhaust conduction through a back pressure reducing G-POWER full stainless-steel sport rear silencer with 4x83mm tailpipes featuring the M-design look.
Electronics: Custom made software for the standard BMW engine and SMG- transmission electronic control unit (BMW OBD stays completely untouched); enabling in addition an unlimited top speed according to the capacity of the tyres.
Stage 2 takes the M3 a step further, another 25 hp to a total of 542 hp and 387 lb-ft. What does Stage 2 bring to the table?
An ASA supercharger with enlarged mass flow rate (ASA TM1- 17HD); G-POWER SPEEDFLOW exhaust system (export only), optimized exhaust conduction through dynamic pressure reduced exhaust system including first catalysts replacement pipes, racing stainless-steel catalysts and intermediate muffler; adjustment of the ECU software to the enlarged mass flow rate.
But G-Power is just getting started, for those of you that want even more power squeezed out of that M3 engine, the Compressorsystem EVO-SK III increases output to 626 hp and 450 lb-ft, turning the BMW M3 E9x series into a “beast”.
Wait, we’re not done yet, G-Power takes the M3 to a whole another level. For the right price, they will replace the V8 engine with the V10 one from the M5 Hurricane, which outputs 730 hp.
Now we’re talking! And all of this can be done with minor modifications to the body.
