performance underdrive pulley set

Compared to the coupes and sedans, modified M3 convertibles are pretty rare to come by. This Alpine White E93 dropped by our facility for some basic maintenance and a dyno session. Fitted with all the standard bolt-on power modifications, such as a tune, intake, pulley, track pipes and exhaust, this M3 put down 376hp and 271ft-lbs tq at the wheels. Quite a bit of work went into giving this vert a properly unique and aggressive exterior, from the super low stance, 20" wheels, gloss black accents, custom headlights, tinted taillights and carbon fiber all around. This M3 also sounds as mean as it looks, which gives onlookers twice the reason to turn their heads when it drives by. Enjoy!
This stock LeMans Blue M3 finally came to our shop to get some modifications. The first order of business for this E92 was extracting a bit more power out of the S65 V8. To do this, we installed a set of Macht Schnell performance underdrive pulleys in conjunction with a Macht Schnell catless race x-pipe. Even with the stock mufflers, the Macht Schnell x-pipe really gives an aggressive sound; check out the video below to hear it for yourself. We then focused on the suspension, where we swapped out the stock springs with a set of Swift Spec-R lowering springs, and installed two sets of Macht Schnell wheel spacers. Last but not least, we installed BMW's Edition black chrome kidney grilles and fender gilles, which really tied the whole car together. Enjoy.
Unlike Alpine White, Jet Black is rather uncommon among the E9X M3s around here. This dark E92 features the OEM ZCP wheels (which have been powdercoated in a gunmetal finish) that are aggressively spaced out with a set of Macht Schnell wheel spacers. To further improve the widened stance of the car, this M3 is riding on the popular B&G S2 springs, which lower the car 1.0" in the front and 0.5" in the rear. In the rear, an Arkym carbon fiber diffuser shrouds the polished stainless steel Eisenmann race exhaust. Giving this M3 an extra dosage of power are the Macht Schnell Stage 2 intake system, Macht Schnell pulleys, Macht Schnell track pipes and an ESS E-Flash tune. Our H8 LED angel eyes and IND's painted cosmetic package finish the exterior of this M3.
Equipped with the complete list of Macht Schnell bolt-on modifications and a tune, Kaiv's Alpine White E92 was able to set the record for the most powerful naturally aspirated M3 ever strapped to our dyno. We've seen a few M3's barely break the 400whp mark before, but this M3 put down an impressive 413whp! All this power doesn't go to waste though; as an avid track day attender this M3 is pushed to it's limits on a regular basis.
This Alpine White E63 M6 features the complete Vorsteiner exterior, comprised of the Carbon Fiber Vented Race Hood, Carbon Fiber Front Spoiler, Carbon Fiber Decklid Spoiler and Carbon Fiber Rear Diffuser. Installed under the hood you will find the Macht Schnell Performance Underdrive Pulleys and Evolve exhaust headers, which is good for 500whp on this M6.

There is a popular trio of bolt-on modifications that helps to squeeze out every bit of power from the M3's S65 V8. They are: a full exhaust system, performance underdrive pulleys and a performance intake. This Melbourne Red E92 had this trio installed at our facility.

A person or animal who is asleep.
A person with a specified sleep pattern: "he was a light sleeper".
A term often referring to what appears to be a ordinary looking stock vehicle that is anything but stock under the hood.
A sleeper (US English) or Q-car (British English) is a car that has high performance and an unassuming exterior. Sleeper cars are termed such because their exterior looks little or no different from a standard or economy-class car. In some cases the car appears worse due to seeming neglect on the owner's part, typically referred to as "all go and no show". While appearing to be a standard or neglected car, internally they are modified to perform at much higher performance levels.
We're particularly a big fan of sleepers, it seems the 400whp barrier has been broken, with a new beast is now hitting the streets.
