Your truck should have it! Those downpipes really get it off the line. I went out about 2 weeks ago and just wasnt launching well at all. Track was in terrible conditions.

You know... I really can't remember. It has to be close to 3 years ago. I think I was manually shifting, traction off, M mode and what not. Too many beers...

LOL no worries Ill try to figure it out. Nice trap speeds in your M5! How do you like the car? Try any AMGs before you got the M5.

Great thread guys, it's awesome to look back over years of guys racing these trucks. As soon as we have ours later this month I will start documenting the gains we see with tune, downpipe, etc. Still torn on which tune to select.

1/4 mile X6 50i

Ran my 2011 X6 50i at the track last night. Island Dragway NJ. Temp was 78 and humid. JB Stage 1(default settings) and AR catted DPs. For some reason my computer wasn't reading my USB cable correctly and couldn't connect to the software to up the boost more.

Best was 13.002 @107
She def has high 12s in her. Other runs were 13.053 and 13.028 all at 107. Need to solve the USB connection problem to adjust the boost. Otherwise, I'm hauling ass for a 50i with the Stage 1. Stage 2 must be amazing!

Here's a post from the heartbreaker track of America, Bandimere Speedway, at 5800 ft elevation...

I took delivery of the car Thursday (back from the transporter - it never got shipped - long story) and drove it back to Denver, and continuing a tradition of taking our new cars to the track as soon as you have them, we went out to Bandimere Friday night. My wife got launch control (probably?) figured out, and this was the result:





That run was with me in the passenger seat, 3 kids' car seats in the back, the spare, etc. There's probably at least 1/10th better in there without the additional ballast.

13.5 is pretty quick for any stock car at Bandimere. As an example my CTS-V ran 13.0 @ 107 stock. Looking forward to getting her car into the 12s with downpipes and a tune!

I was also hoping for very high 11's but did not happen so I think the only way to get 11's would be with turbo upgarades (dont know if anyone offers this option) and also change the exhaust manifold...
Did you ever get times/HP readings with your gutted cats? You for sale post is the most conclusive mention I've seen that they're still a good option over $1300+ aftermarket pipes. Can you say why you chose ESS over all the companies out there?

Yesterday I went to a track rental at Great Lakes Dragway that was being hosted by a local SRT-8 Jeep shop, so I was racing other hi-po Jeeps all day (turbo, N/A, etc.) Everyone was real nice and were surprised how fast the X5M was with limited mods compared to their Jeeps. The weather was decent: 70*, 73% humidity, 30.26 in Hg, 1336 DA, slight headwind 10-15mph. I raced the fastest Jeep there which ran a 10.9 against me, the truck was nasty and he's shooting for 9's on the new setup. I swapped on my winter wheels/tires to drop some rotational mass and also get the benefits of a softer sidewall compared to the RFTs. I had 14 runs total and the truck consistently was running 12.2-12.3 @ 110-112 with 1.7-1.8 60' times. I played with tire pressure a little to try and drop the 60' but couldn't do better than 1.7's. I uploaded the current tune a few days ago and I feel like the truck gets faster over time from the DME learning (maybe in my head), but I'm going to see if Jerry at Eurocharged has any more power that he thinks he can extract. I may go back when the temps get cooler and hopefully a tail wind to get closer to an 11 sec pass

Mods: Eurocharged Tune, AP Cat less Downpipes, Gintani Exhaust
M Settings: DSC Off, EDC Normal, Power Sport

Best Runs of the day:




Vids (low-quality):

Good stuff Creamo3. Thanks for sharing and thanks to everyone that has shared so far. This thread is important because it lets the world know how capable our SAV's are!

I can't wait to get mine to the strip this fall. I haven't really tinkered with the M in the last year as I've been focusing on making my s4 run in the 11's. Now that I accomplished that I am going to push to get the M running in the 11's! I think it has the power to do so
