    BMW DCT F80 M3 with VTT GC S55 turbo upgrade vs. built motor Procharged manual S550 Mustang GT

    This is an impressive beatdown by the BMW considering the Mustang is boosted with a Procharger supercharger and has a built Coyote V8. The F80 M3 is a DCT running the VTT (Vargas Turbocharger Technologies) GC cast S55 turbocharger upgrade.

    It is not even much of a race. The transmission no doubt plays a huge role as just look at the difference in another video of a Procharged Mustang GT with a 10-speed automatic that open up bus lengths on a Gen V Viper.

    Regardless, this F80 M3 demolishes a powerful Mustang GT.

    Damn, I guess I won't be getting a A10 mustang with a 8-1100whp hellion twin turbo system then, if Vargas' GC turbo is gonna keep up.

    I think is is a bad example with the mustang driver doing something horribly wrong. M3 was on E85?

    You got me. Roll and role swapped in my head Click here to enlarge

    That 10-speed is ridiculous though. Impressive trans.

    I would assume E85 for the M3 but @Chris@VargasTurboTech should know

    I know that's what we're pointing out but this is a manual Mustang.

    Also, the 2018’s have the gen 3 coyote motor. There’s a big difference.

    We sure did, lets also keep in mind. I drove the car 2.5 hours on E85 to the event got 20MPG, did NOTHING but swapped some drag radials onto it, pulled out on the strip, and promptly ran a 168MPH pass. Something else to ponder this is my second to last pass of the day which was a 164MPH pass. As the car got slower as the day wore on due to high IAT's pulling timing... We were the fastest BMW at event, these S55's are so much less drama than trying to race an N54 race car, I actually enjoyed my day...

    It's almost as if it's long past due to move on from the N54...
