Default G30 540i tuned question - 09-25-2021, 12:20 AM

I’m getting a car soon and I want a fast newer bmw, I’m interested in a 540i and a m240i, obv the 2 series is faster due to it being lighter, but the g30 interior and all the technology is insane I love it. I know the b58 engine is good for tuning and I’m just wondering if a tuned 540i would be able to keep up with maybe a m550i?https://19216811.cam/ https://1921681001.id/

Damn I didn't realize the latest m550 was putting out 523hp/553ft-lbs. A modded & tuned B58 will be in the 425-450 range (not including WMI), and is about 200lbs lighter. That would put the 550 at 8.2lb/hp and the 540 at 9.1lb/hp. I'm sure it wouldn't get smoked, but at the end of the day you're comparing a 4.4L twin turbo V8 vs. a 3.0L turbo inline 6. That alone kinda puts them in different leagues.
