    Jonny Lieberman works for MotorTrend and you probably have seen him in the Head 2 Head episodes. BimmerBoost has nothing against him although we wonder how someone gets a job with MotorTrend when they make basic mistakes. Lieberman's job is to know about the cars he is talking about. Which is why BimmerBoost made it a point to explain that in the latest Head 2 Head where he states the ATS-V is more powerful than the F80 M3 because the M3 has 'only' 425 horsepower Liberman and MotorTrend are wrong. Very wrong. Absurdly wrong. Embarrassingly wrong. The F80 M3 and the F82 M4 are severely underrated. The car makes much more than its 425 horsepower crank rating. Frankly, it is closer to a wheel horsepower rating than a crank horsepower rating. One should assume this simply by juxtaposing the acceleration figures of the F80 M3 and E90 M3. The difference is not 11 horses. MotorTrend's own test figures prove that. The F80 M3 is insanely underrated. Now we have dyno results showing 427 horsepower to the wheels for the F80 M3. We have stock 1/4 mile times showing 11.9 @ 119. Liberman claims to be aware of the M3 being underrated but when asked for proof provided nothing to support this. Additionally, he does not mention the M3 is underrated in the Head 2 Head video. He states the ATS-V is more powerful. He also on Twitter states his support for this as the ATS-V being quicker despite being heavier. While the ATS-V does indeed get a 12.1 second elapsed time as tested by MotorTrend the F80 M3 gets a 12.3 @ 118.1 miles per hour. The ATS-V hits 12.1 at a slower 116.2. The only thing Lieberman gets right here is that the ATS-V is quicker but it is not faster. Trap speed is primarily a product of power. MotorTrend's own numbers and Lieberman's own statement support BimmerBoost. Point easily proven without even having to show the dyno numbers. Not to mention, the guy should probably know that a RWD car with a ton of torque that traps higher will improve its elapsed time with better traction off the line. That means the M3 with drag radials can be a hell of a lot quicker. Perhaps MotorTrend just doesn't know how to launch as well. Lieberman goes on to state I need to check my facts. The same man who called the new S65 AMG V12 an M275 model despite it being the updated M279 V12 variant from AMG. He conveniently ignores this point. One who does not get their own facts correct should not be telling others to check theirs. Lieberman and MotorTrend need to check their own facts. Rather than lobbing insults for getting called on their mistakes, they should correct them. There is no shame in being wrong. There is a bit of shame in a 'kid' knowing the facts better than the professional though, right? Lieberman, if you ever want to engage in a debate with me feel free. Based on what I have seen so far it will be one-sided. Whenever you want to, I'm right here. MotorTrend, when you are ready to hire someone who checks their facts, let me know.

    Finally getting with the times and welded some inlets for my car, figured I share :awesome: Will probably wrap them in gold foil or something eventually. Specs : 2" dia 16g SS304, K&N RU-5111 filters Scotchbrited on left, welded but before prep on right. Weld detail : Installed : Couple notes for install on a 1M or any car with the supplemental radiator, the lines get in the way if you relocate the coolant tank like I have it. Modding the coolant level sensor mount tabs so it can go in with the plug pointing 180* the other way will let the tank tuck far enough over against the fender liner.

    I was running jb4 map without any major problems, except my ff would learn all the way up to 150. I gave mhd a shot, to lend my buddy my jb4, and it boosts under target after 5000rpm. are these 2 issues related? if so what could it be? I'm gonna rip off the dp's and adjust the wastegates asap. What else could it be? 335xi mt dp's 5" stepped fmic bms dci brand new plugs on mhd logs mix of 99 unleaded mhd to rule out timing mhd logs http://www.datazap.me/u/fredcase/log...10-11-12-13-21 http://www.datazap.me/u/fredcase/log...og=1&data=4-21 http://www.datazap.me/u/fredcase/log...og=2&data=4-21 jb4 logs http://www.datazap.me/u/fredcase/log...log=0&data=1-4 http://www.datazap.me/u/fredcase/log...log=1&data=1-4 http://www.datazap.me/u/fredcase/log...log=2&data=1-4

    Well all of us are track only ;) with all the mods we have done lol If someone could come up with a pnp solution for a decent price, I'm sure people would be willing to invest the money. There are a decent amount of people that troll on the forums and track their cars more than the ones that actually post and I'm sure they would buy.

    As long as your valve cover is not cracked, you will not need one. You will need a new valve cover Gasket though as you have to pull the cover and tap and block the ports on the head for this solution to work properly. http://www.boostaddict.com/showthread.php?67125-My-smoking-addiction/page3&p=664539&viewfull=1#post664539

    We'd be better off finding someone else who'd be interested in trying it out. Most people who need a twin disc already have the PTF one or the Spec Stage 3+ It also might be worth asking someone at a Dealership if they think it would fit lol
