ACM | 750 WHP 770TQ Next Level X5M

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
This is THE X5M to know
Steve brought us his SUV and made one thing clear
"I want the fastest X5M in the world"
I think he came to the right place...



Full Akrapovic Exhaust
Catless Downpipes
First of its kind custom built chargepipes with meth nozzels
Full meth setup with hidden pump and tank in the trunk
Pure stage 2 turbos
DME Tuning Stage 3 Tune (back end)
JB4
Fully Built Transmission
Rebuilt High Hp rear axles by DSS
KW V3 Suspension
HRE 21' S204



Want to know what the best part about this build is?
It is an anniversary gift for his wife who loves cars as much as he does!
To my surprise when she first jumped in the SUV i figured she would have a ton of questions. She only had two. She pulled up the JB4 App on her phone and asked me, "Which map is for Daily Driving and which map do i race with".



While Steven didn't care for carbon fiber bits and pieces, he made it clear with what wheels he chose that form still played a role in his build.



We knew from the beginning that Meth injection was a must for this SUV. The problem we ran into was that there were no reliable and safe solutions to running it properly. I think we solved it with a one of a kind charge pipe solution for the X5/X6M.



One of the beautiful things about a powerful SUV is its multi-duty use. Being able to haul kids, fold the seats down and lay some wood down in the back, sleek design to bring a few friends out to dinner in etc.. To keep that multi function we decided to make put the meth tank in a lovely spot hidden in the trunk.



Having the chance to drive this SUV it really gave me a feeling i hadn't experienced before. Think Full bolt on GTR type body effect in a 5,300 lb truck. It really is a whole new body experience. This truck absolutely RIPS! As far as we know, this is a world record X5/6 M.


Besides having built an epic X5M, we here at ACM made a great friend in Steven and we have future plans for his beautiful 488 spider.



Up next we will be doing Intake and a little more tuning to hopefully hit 800WHP!

Yes I'm curious who built the transmission. I've emailed a few companies with no response. I think mine is at the limit just with JB4/Catless and beating the hell out of it. Havent even tried Map7 with racegas yet. But with that kind of power you should be running high 10s!!!

Congratulations to everyone involved on this! I would love to see how it holds up in regards to the longevity of the engine. I've been holding off on doing a tune to my car as I'd love to one day upgrade to pure stage 2's once my lease is up and I finish modding my E63 M6. I know of someone on other forums who have increased the engine displacement from a 4.4-4.6 on the previous gen X5M. It would be awesome to see a 4.6 liter Pure stage 2 someday on this generations s63tu platform. Maybe possibly in the range of 800 whp!

Assuming it is a ZF8HP75 they may have used the parts from the HP90 which is in the dodge hellcat twins and the M760 as well as the RR. Who knows.

There it is all put back together. Mind blowing mods. Steve - I have no idea who you are but you're crazy [in the most complimentary sense of the word].
