EAS BMW M4: Basic bolt-ons for one wild ride!


The Awron DGA gauge is a must have for those who want to know what’s going on with their cars.  The gauge only takes up one vent so it seamlessly fits the overall look of the interior.  It also displays a plethora of real time data on the fly, and the different sensors can be toggled via the steering wheel buttons.

The different displayed values include:
Battery Voltage
Boost Pressure/Peak Boost recall
Water temperature
Transmission temperature
Horsepower and peak horsepower
Torque and peak torque
Dyno graph
G-Forces and peak G-Force
Speed and Max speed
Stop watch
Sprint times
GPS Speed
Quarter-mile times
Light countdown
Wideband O2 sensor bank
Exhaust Gas temperature
Fuel Rail pressure
Intake temperature
Oil temperature
Oil pressure
Max values


Speaking of Fuel Rail pressure, you may be wondering why the fuel pressure is so high in this picture.  Keep in mind that this picture was taken with the car at idle.  For reference, our Project E46 M3 and Project MKIV Supra Turbo idle are set to 42 PSI.  Give this BMW M4 some throttle, and you’ll see that number spike to over 3000 PSI!  Welcome to the world of direct injection.  Also nevermind the negative value of the EGT, for some reason when it was a cold start-up, the sensor would read negative for a few minutes before correcting itself. 

Check out this video EAS produced, showing all of the various features of the gauge in action while the M4 is on the dyno!
Here’s a close-up of the M4’s center console.  Like its predecessor, the E9X M3, the new M car also comes in a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT (dual clutch transmission).  From the factory, the DCT is rated 0.2-seconds quicker in acceleration because it shifts so stinkin’ fast.  EAS took order of its M3 with the DCT transmission, and it makes you feel invincible when ripping through the gears.

I very much like the simplicity of the new instrument cluster.  And that bone stock 7500 RPM redline from a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six is no joke when you consider the length of that crankshaft.  The stock redline is actually set to 7600 RPM by BMW. 

By comparison, other sports cars that came from the factory sporting turbocharged 3-liter inline-six cylinder engines included the MKIV Supra and BMW 335i, which redlined at 6800 and 7000 RPM, respectively.
