    How much faster is a supercharged E92 M3 versus a stock E92 M3? This much.

    Here is a video that will do a better job explaining the difference between a supercharged and standard M3 than any dyno numbers ever will. The camera car is a 6-speed manual E92 M3 with a supercharged S65 V8 courtesy of an ESS VT2-625 kit. The other M3 is also a 6-speed manual but not supercharged and seemingly in a stock configuration. The difference is illustrated quite well with the distance between the two measured in miles rather than car lengths.

    Thank you BimmerBoost member @Pea for the video.

    That difference is ridiculous.
    Didn't expect that.

    your looking at 15-20mph difference between stock and 7-8psi over just the 1/4 mile, so this explains a lot

    20 is too high. But around ~15.

    I especially liked the camera guy's attempt at getting the other M3 in the shot. Seemed like quite the difficult task when you're ahead by that far, lol.

    LOL. How much M3's cost over there? Crazy amount of taxes you have there.

    You could probably make them go less in poor conditions but in the same conditions on the same strip 20 mph gain is a bit optimistic. It's on the high side basically.
