Post The Project 328i Goes on the Dyno and Produces 242 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque!



The Project 328i dyno'd in at a whopping 241.241 horsepower and 274.759 lb-ft of torque at http://www.turnermotorsport.com/ today showing us just how much BMW has underrated the new 4-cylinder N20 motor. This was the first 6 speed manual to go on the dyno and it certainly did not disappoint. This motor is going to be a BEAST!

2012 F30 328i Dyno Run

2012 F30 328i Dyno Run

Previously we had seen two 2012 F30 328i sedans dynod, our friends at EAS (EAS F30 328i dyno thread) put down 226hp and 230ft-lbs of torque. InsideLine (InsideLine F30 328i dyno thread) put down an even more impressive 240hp and 257ft-lbs of torque. As you can see, there is a trend growing that this car is making a lot more power than expected.

Project 328i goes for a dyno run

A big thank goes out to Turner Motorsport for helping us make this happen!

Besides the dyno run we're using Turner Motorsport impressive facility to dive into our F30 328i. Look for the following technical results from our trip -
  • Complete suspension review including expert analysis from TMS suspension engineers
  • Side-by-Side comparison of the E90 to the F30 on the lift
  • We weigh the 328i on the TMS race scales. How much does an F30 328i really weigh?
  • Wheel fitment testing - If you're going to be putting rims on your F30 you'll need this info
  • Brake pad fitment - Are any existing brake pads compatible with our F30 328i brake system
  • And more! Who knows what else we'll come up with with the BMW experts at Turner Motorsports!

We are working on putting some more miles on the Project 2012 BMW 328i right now and will have enough miles on the odometer by Thursday for a LIVE dyno run at Turner Motorsport.

We do not have the direct link for the live dyno run yet but check back and we'll update you once we have it.

You can also check out Inside Line's dyno of a 2012 3 Series 328i with automatic transmission at the following link:

Video from today's dyno runs. We did 12 total runs and got the turbo glowing hot but didn't have any oil temp or coolant temp problems. The car seems to be rock solid on the cooling front. The numbers are amazing (ignore the ones in the video, I messed up), we got 242 horsepower and 275 ft-lbs of torque from the N20, which BMW rates at 240 hp and 260tq. Looks like they've massively underrated it!

More pictures and info from visiting Turner Motorsport coming soon!

I am really anxious to see what the tuning industry is going to coax out of the 2L turbo 328i. Hopefully we find out soon!
