The BMW M5 is a high performance variant of the BMW 5 Series marketed under the BMW M sub-brand. It is considered an iconic vehicle in the sports sedan category.The majority of M5’s have been produced in the sedan (saloon) body style, but in some countries the M5 was also available as a wagon (estate) from 1992–1995 and 2006–2010.
The F90 M5 is based on the G30 5 Series and uses an all-wheel drive (“xDrive”) powertrain, being the first time that an M5 has not been rear-wheel drive.However the all-wheel drive system is biased towards the rear wheels and be configured to send power to the rear wheels only (if the electronic stability control is disabled).
Our task is to give the extra push that this beast needs to really unveil its true character and that is what we did.The engine is an evolution of the S63 from the previous generation. With a power output of 441 kW (600 PS/591 hp) the new M5 has the same power as the limited edition “Competition Package” and “30 Jahre M5” models of the previous generation, while the torque has been raised to 750 N⋅m (553 lb⋅ft), 70 N⋅m (52 lb⋅ft) more than in the previous M5.
The transmission is the eight-speed ZF 8HP automatic transmission.The F90 is the first M5 to use a torque converter automatic transmission (compared with the previous generation’s dual-clutch transmission), which BMW states was chosen for its durability and because shift times are not significantly slower than a dual-clutch transmission.
Our Stage 1 for the S63B44T4 engine and the all new Bosch MG1CS201 DME8.8T.0 engine management system was done via obd port in several minutes using our obd flashing equipment.
The initial power from factory is 600 metric horsepower (592 brake horsepower / 441 kilowatts) @ 5600 rpm.
By flashing our stage 1 ecu tune in this fully stock car (Pre opf/gpf version) we gained 738ps and 866nm without stressing the car to its maximum potential which is 780ps and 960nm on our stage 2 maps.
Here are the results on our awd mustang dynamometer.
