EAS has dynoed a 2013 M6 DCT coupe. The M6 with its S63Tu motor is rated from the factory at 560hp / 502 lb-ft torque. This particular M6 put down a max 503hp / 488lb-ft torque (SAE) at the rear wheels. This was achieved on regular 91 octane pump gas and a Dynojet 224xLC.

There are still slots open for free dynos, so check inside if you are from the SoCal area and would like to run your F10 M5 or F12/F13 M6 on the dyno.

BMW has issued a delivery stop order on all 2013 M5 and M6 (coupe and convertible). The issue stems from a potential problem with the engine oil pump on certain S63Tu engine equipped cars. Vehicles equipped with an affected pump could experience a sudden loss of oil pressure which will result in engine damage.

BMW is recommending current M5 and M6 owners not drive the vehicle. Stay tuned for updates.

BMW M cars may have staked their reputation on their handling and overall performance package, but with the forced induction trend of the latest M models, they’ve become quite the straight-line monsters.

The 2013 F10 M5 with its S63Tu engine is rated at 560hp from the factory, but dynos have confirmed that this is a significantly underrated power figure. This has now also been borne out at the track.

M5POST member 2013awm5 took his M5 to the track and produced a very impressive quarter mile top run time of 11.78 @ 119mph! This was achieved with launch control and no modifications to the car. The car was bone stock including factory tires and air pressures. All runs done in comfort suspension setting, … CONTINUED

The 2013 F10 M5 with its 4.4L V8 S63Tu turbo engine has previously been shown to be underrated from the factory, which is BMW’s habit with its official quote power figures.

The latest results showing this come from iND who have just begun performance testing on their F10 M5. The result was 527 RWHP (rear wheel horsepower) on a totally stock F10 M5 running on pump gas and dyno’d on a dynojet. This represents just a 6% drivetrain loss.

The M5′s S63tu V8 runs a higher compression at 10.0:1 (@ 22 PSI), compared to the X5M/X6M S63 engine’s 9.3:1 (@ 17 PSI).
