Stage 2 and 3 upgrades also in the pipeline.
Best known for its 1,000-hp Nissan GT-R upgrades, tuner Alpha-N Performance has revealed initial details about its latest project based on the BMW M3 and M4. In addition to working on a "whole arsenal of carbon parts" and an Ohlins sports suspension, Alpha-N is focused on dialing up the output of the new Bimmers. The Stage 1 power upgrade includes an EVOX tuning system that adds 89 hp and 95 lb-ft, enabling the 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder to generate 520 hp and 501 lb-ft of torque.
Stage 2 and 3 packages are also in the works, offering more power thanks in part to a new lightweight sports exhaust system. Watch this space for more details, which will be shared once we have them.
