Dinan to boost 2008 Bmw M3 to 628 hp


Since its launch, the 2008 Bmw M3 made quite a buzz, but now Dinan is pushing it to its limits. Dinan, a well-respected BMW tuner known for working miracles on the Bavarian cars, said today that its new version of the M3 will be powered by a 5.7-liter engine capable to develop 628 hp. The “standard” M3 is powered by a V8 engine developing 420 hp and can go from 0-60 mph in just 4.8 seconds. With a boost to 628 hp, the Dinan M3 will beat out its brothers, the M5 and M6. No launch date has been set, but of course we’re going to stay on top of this hot M3. Stay tuned!

Hrm...interesting. I wonder if they'll just swap out their stage 2 M5/M6 engine. It would be a lot of boring/stroking to turn a 4.0L V8 into a 5.7L.



1999 E39 540i/6-VF Stage 1 S/C, Dinan exhaust, Dinan strut+shock braces, Dinan ltwt flywheel + clutch, Dinan Brembo BBK, Dinan monoball, H&R Springs, Koni Yellows, M5 sways, Dinan forged 18" wheels, &c.

1995 E38 740i. Highly modded. Faster than you.

I don't like the horsepower race
why does it always have to be more and more hp? The 333 hp from the e46 M3 were already plenty

Methinks (IF the facts of this article are indeed straight) they would be doing the swap, as the #'s add up too well at 5.7L than to start opening up the 4L that much. Seems impractical the "hard" way.

I agree. At some point, that excessive torque and power might well just cause the car to stay in place and peel the road out from under itself

Latest intel is that this article is incorrect. Looks like they're going to bore and stroke the current V8 to about 4.8L.

My supposition was confirmed when I asked Steve two weeks ago. The engine will be bored and stroked, and output will be 500bhp...with a monster increase in torque.
