Also the member was running a 93/e85 blend. So if we go by mathmatics the 335i would make 374.5 whp if it was RWD. Now factor in E85. You can run more boost and a more aggressive tune. After that we should be right around those numbers....My money is def on Aaron BTW.
Missed that it was awd - and forgot about the dyno sheet in the vid (been awhile since I watched it). I knew e85 was good stuff, but another 40hp to the wheels? Whatever, doesn't matter. Good numbers either way.

Do you have a pull of your car fbo but without e85? Curious to know what it does on straight 93 octane.
