    Rowen, George is a good person to have in your corner, do not hesitate to hit him up if you need anything. Ps George, I just back on the new Golf R upgrade, depending on how backed up my machine shop is, we should have something for you soon.

    So we have decided to extend the 10% site wide promotion until Monday at Midnight instead of Sunday at Midnight. This makes sure all of Cyber Monday is included in the promotion and gives everyone another 24 hours to get in on the fun...:naughty:

    I think that while in the US only the 335is can have a DCT, in Germany there are regular 335i and Z4 with DCT. Just search for DKG.

    In case anyone had any concerns about tuning the new STI's here is an 802.6 all wheel horsepower dyno pull that should alleviate any remaining doubt. This car is built by the Shop CT and obviously features aftermarket internals although the Shop CT did not provide the specifications. As far as the specs we know the cams are Kelford 220-D and the fuel used was E70 ethanol. Last we heard the turbocharger used was a Precision 6466 unit. Hopefully more details come as they barely provided any details but over 800 all wheel horsepower with the new STI is a reality and available in the aftermarket as of today.

    Congrats. Can't wait to see results. I would say take it easy on it until everything is fixed on the tuning end. I always start on map 1 and work myself up on the many upgrades that my car had. No need to rush.

    I am sure he does, like I said, it seems everyone is tuner these days. I am not doubting his abilities, just pointing out the fact that is picking out a single first pull log and analyzing it like its a dyno pull, then calling people out for saying it was ok. Yes we are not blind we all say the HPFP dropping etc, but the log wasn't to look at any of that

    Way to much focus on a single log that was taken an hr after install. Tony hit the nail on the head, making sure there were no boost leaks was item number one. Fueling was secondary because it was literally going to be a single gear pull with plenty of meth and ethenol to keep things fairly safe. The cold weather exacerbated the issue and caused overboosting. Simply switching to the single turbo back end will make this much more conservative and cleaner. Treb actually does do some tuning though tony.

    Looks like there is a serious solution out there for people who want to track their M4 (all 3 of you). This looks pretty nice though: https://fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/t31.0-8/10011837_822080737831392_7431289054168769583_o.jpg/img]

    The AMG Sport mid-range model line designed to bridge the gap between the Mercedes-Benz and Mercedes-AMG models was officially confirmed by Mercedes earlier today. Think of AMG Sport as an answer to the BMW M Performance line or the Audi S-Line models. Two new AMG Sport models have been confirmed and based on the teaser photo one can surmise there will be a C-Class and M-Class AMG Sport variant. BenzBoost expects the C-Class model to be the rumored C450 model that will get the new M276 DELA 35 motor that Mercedes quietly introduced earlier this year. It is also possible that the M276 DELA 30 will be used as well but we are leaning toward the new 3.5 liter variant. This makes sense as the C400 would be at 333 horsepower and the C450 AMG Sport would get a 3.5 liter variant with closer to 400 horsepower to fit the gap in between the C400 and C63 AMG. The other vehicle is likely an ML450 AMG Sport matching the C450 AMG Sport driveline. We will know for sure in Detroit but we do know for sure that AMG Sport is coming. MERCEDES-AMG UPS THE ANTE - Growth strategy aimed at new market segments - Doubling of global sales targeted by 2017 - Premiere of the new AMG Sport models at the North American International Motor Show in Detroit Affalterbach - The sports car and high-performance brand Mercedes-AMG will achieve a new sales record of well over 40,000 units globally this year. Its entry into the compact segment and the broadening of its product range have provided the Affalterbach-based company with access to new customer groups and secured success in established and new markets. New models developed entirely in-house, such as the SLS AMG and, more recently, the Mercedes-AMG GT, consolidate the brand's success story and place it firmly on course for sustained growth. "We are proud of these successes, as they provide the basis for the next stage of our growth strategy, which we are now launching," explains Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH. "In the next three years we aim to more than double our total sales for 2013." To render the AMG brand and its technology more accessible, Mercedes-AMG is establishing a new product line by the name of "AMG Sport", offering enhanced performance and technical refinements. The AMG Sport models will fill the gap between the AMG Sports package for Mercedes-Benz vehicles and the classic AMG models, thereby underpinning the brand's growth strategy on a sustained basis. Opening up new customer groups and segments will raise the company's profile and boost AMG's sales potential worldwide. "The new Sport models represent a convincing proposition for our customers: genuine sports car technology becomes accessible, appealing to an even broader-ranging clientele worldwide," observes Tobias Moers. "For all our dynamic growth, we remain true to our brand claim of "Driving Performance"." The AMG Sport models bear out the high-performance brand's claim with uprated engine output, all-wheel drive as standard in selected markets and special chassis components and brake systems from the classic AMG models. Signature AMG driving dynamics and a highly emotional driving experience are the tangible outcome for the customer. The first two AMG Sport models are set to be unveiled at the International Auto Show in Detroit in January 2015. It is planned to add further models to this new product line in due course. The Affalterbach-based sports car brand has set itself high aims not only with regard to customer enthusiasm and growth: the fleet consumption has been reduced by 35 per cent by means of a comprehensive range of technical measures carried out in the past five years as part of the "AMG Green Performance Strategy". The AMG models are already among the most fuel-efficient and low-emission vehicles in their respective segments, with the new engine technologies and all-embracing lightweight design set to render them yet more efficient. The introduction of the Sport models in 2015 will make an additional significant contribution towards lowering the fuel consumption of the AMG fleet. The company headquarters in Affalterbach and the logistics organisation are also all set for sustained growth and represent the benchmark in efficiency, flexibility and environment-friendliness. The company has received recognition from the "German Sustainable Building Council", for example, and is the winner of the "Deutscher Logistik-Preis 2014" from the BVL Global Supply Chain Network for both its environment-friendliness and its supply chain strategy.

    We are working on them, we are finishing up the Stage 3 intakes so we can send everything off at once to get fitment samples back. I love the other guy on the other forum spinning silicone intakes like they are a bad thing, and his heat absorbing, relocate your engine bay intake pipes are better. The humor never ends with that guy, I posted some links for him to give the companies a call and let them know their silicone intakes are a bad idea....:laughing-rofl:
