    Terry@BMS started a thread 5.86s 60-130 in N54
    Hey guys, Was able to get our MOTIV 750 135i out for a couple passes on the private track. Traction was rough, spinning the tires hard in 3rd gear even with boost capped at 25psi in 3rd, but managed to set a new N54 60-130 WR @ 5.865s. It could be so much faster with better traction. Maybe I'll try letting some more air out of the rear tires next week. Major mods include JB4, PI, 100% E85, MOTIV 750, LVL10 trans, drag radials, and lots of weight reduction.

    I just replaced my t-stat and waterpump on a 335XI. As with literally everything you do on an XI, its a harder install because you have a subframe getting in the way. I read several DIYs, and as always, there was someone claiming they could replace the t-stat and water pump w/o dropping the subframe. No. F'ng. Way. Now, to be fair, perhaps this person has hands the size of an infant, and a matter transporter to beam the parts into and out of their locations, so maybe it's possible for them, but I have neither of those advantages. I've been in the VW world, Suby world and now BMW world, and they all share a common thread: People claim install times that are wildly optimistic or install methods that are downright impossible. Are these people just trolling?

    Trying to interpret foreign dynos and converting their units to provide meaningful data is somewhat of a headache. For Americans, putting it on a good old Dynojet produces numbers that provide the greatest context. Still, what we can see here is that Porsche is providing exactly what they said they would and maybe a couple extra horses. The Maha dyno reads out at the crank but still has to somehow convert the output it measures to derive the crank figures as it is not an engine stand dyno but using the moving wheels to derive the graph. 391.6 PS is 386.24 horsepower at the crank. The GT4 is rated by Porsche at 385 horsepower. Pretty much right on the dot as it should be considering Porsche is artificially limiting the car to not step on the toes of its big brother 991 Carrera S with which it shares the same 3.8 liter flat-6 engine. Torque is at 304.72 lb-ft and Porsche rates the car at 309 lb-ft so it's basically a wash and this could be influenced by the fuel quality and air temperature. What we learn is that the GT4 is positioned specifically and deliberately to deliver less output than the Carrera S with the same motor which means you can expect nice tune only gains on the motor to bring it up to where it should be. We are looking forward to seeing what the Dynojet tells us.

    Fluid MotorUnion does some outside the box thinking and quirky things although many of them are form over function. We would like to reference their BMW E9X M3 S65 V8 velocity stack system as support for this as an example. They may be onto something here though. The McLaren F1 uses gold foil in the engine bay as a heat reflector. It looks like Fluid MotorUnion is trying to take the same approach here to prevent heat soak and keep the M5 air boxes cooler by applying gold foil wrap to them. In theory this of course should work as gold is an excellent heat reflector. We would like to see some data in support of the function though rather than pictures of how cool it looks under the hood.

    Hello Guys, for all of you wanting some extra HP and sound attached you will find all the Zusubs for PPK (European cars). With this Zusubs you can easily do like the ALPINA Flash using Winkfp on your own!!! After flashing there is an encoding error code. You just have to code the controller unit with an empty MAN using NCS Expert and the error is gone. Take a look at the list because every car has its own Zusub. Also take care of using the correct controlling unit (MVED17/MVED26). I hope i wont get banned for it :law-police:

    The rod bearing failure thread on M3post has been going a while now. The longer I posted on there, the clearer it became that the bearing mafia trio (RG, Bmwlvr, and kawasaki00) are falsifying measurements and facts to promote hysteria and interest in buying their bearings. Just because I went against their Bs, I've been banned from the section. I believe SFP has also been excluded. It seems that anyone not prepared to suck up to him is excluded. What kind of a bully is he and why to M3post go along with him. ? Am am I alone in thinking they are making a mockery of the M3 community by pushing their own design of rod bearing by scare tactics? Come on, who would buy bearings designed by these three idiots? RG (aka pencil geek)has absolutely no qualification, Bmwlvr fixes diesel earth movers and Kawasaki wields spanners for some race team (my mum makes the tea at McLaren but it doesn't make her a bearing expert). Not one of them have anywhere near the qualification to work in bearing design at the M division. Rant over.

    TTE (The Turbo Engineers) Germany does some very cool stuff including C6 RS6 V10 twin turbo upgrades. Unfortunately, the US market did not receive the monster twin turbo V10 C6 generation RS6 which is certainly a downer considering the 'US hates wagon' excuse can not be applied as the car was also produced as a sedan. That is water under the bridge. Despite the US market not getting the car we still like to see what it is capable of and it certainly is capable of a ton of power and torque as the dyno results below reinforce. These are hybrid turbos and completely plug and play. TTE takes the OEM setup and gives the turbos larger forged billet compressor wheels and new intake pipes. The result is turbos capable of over 900 crank horsepower and 867 lb-ft of torque: The dyno states the output is 901.4 horsepower in 'normal' output. Below the 'engine output' is 951.8 horsepower. What the difference between normal and engine is we are not sure. Wheel output is below the two of these at 767.6 horsepower to all four wheels. We would love to see it on a Dynojet but these are impressive numbers. Take a look at the acceleration from a standstill to 150 miles per hour: Further details on this turbo upgrade can be found here. Too bad people in the USA can't play with it: TTE850+ Performance Upgrade Turbochargers RS6 C6 V10 The RS6 C6 with its 5.0 V10 Bi-Turbo engine and 580 PS is the most powerful Audi series production engine to date. Our TTE850+ turbochargers will push the V10 to beyond 850PS with ease. Some tuners like KSF Motorsport and MRC Tuning have seen results at over 900PS+ making these hybrid RS6 upgrade turbochargers the biggest maybe available anywhere, yet still totally Plug & Play. Power level reserved only for true hyper cars and still remaining perfect for driving to go get your family shopping, not loosing any drivability. Engineered & Enhanced The formula to making a TTE850+ starts with a much larger forged milled billet compressor wheel, chosen because is highly efficient, new generation type with ultra thin blades, creating extremely high flow for comparative size, giving a compressor map that's very wide. TTE850+ Yield a maximum air flow rate of 615litres a second Vs stock of 500 (estimated). The intake pipes included with this upgrade has been CNC milled and hand finished to match and smooth the transition to the larger compressor inlet opening to lower turbulence and maximise velocity. We also give the stock turbines a special curved clip, a grinding process to the turbine blade tips, curved to alleviate stress from process and clipping the length reduces blade area, thus increasing gas flow and so reducing back pressure, lowering exhaust gas temperatures, allowing safer higher boost level's. This process also gives a secondary advantage of removing some material, lightening the turbine thus reducing rotational mass improving moment of inertia. Dyno's have shown no little to no loss in response vs stock yet huge gains in power and torque. Significant attention is given to port the exhaust runners at the flange to match and smooth the transition from head to exhaust runner for maximum gas speed and so improving efficiency to the turbine. Firstly by CNC then hand finished. Actuators used are uprated sprung OE units fitted with our reinforced clamps for trouble free operation. These also can also be modified/set to customer needs and specifications. Equilibrium Precisely balancing our turbochargers is a key critical factor for longevity and performance. Good balance improves acoustics also. Subsequent great care is taken with all TTE turbochargers with this regard. Firstly parts are balanced at slow speeds up to 2800RPM in multiple planes using our single parts machine, then components are assembled and then the CHRA are dynamically balanced yet again but this time at up to 250,000 RPM in multiple planes using our in house VSR machine to acquire the ultimate equilibrium, to a standard far higher than OEM. Supplied with a balance test result document. Key Points Genuine IHI Housings & Components CNC Optimized Intake Pipes included Highly Efficient Next Gen Billet Compressor Geometry Optimized Compressor Cover Machining Clearances CNC Port Matched Exhaust Runners Special Curved Clipped Turbines Genuine IHI Uprated & Reinforced Synchronized actuators Dynamically Balanced & Supplied with test result document Fitment As Original. Plug & Play 850+ PS Capable Designed, Machined & Built by TTE in Germany We offer brand new or exchange (depending on stock). We also can offer to upgrade your used turbochargers Brand New Price 7890.00 euro inc vat To Recondition and upgraded a used set of RS6 V10 to TTE850+ Spec, Price is 2799.00 Euro inc vat Shipping does vary but 50.00 euro is a good guide for Europe wide. Reconditioning price shown is based on overhauling and reconditioning, upgrading a undamaged used turbochargers within specification. Only once cleaned and dismantled, inspected then a firm price be made

    Rumors are swirling regarding the Giulia coming to the USA and namely the high performance Quadrifoglio variant. A quick visit to the AlfaRomeoUSA.com website shows the US branch promoting the Giulia Qaudrifoglio so they seem to be teasing it for the US market and gauging feedback. We did of course contact FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) and received a response regarding its US sales that did not confirm or deny anything. Basically a meaningless response with no substance. There is no official confirmation but all signs currently point toward Alfa Romeo bringing this car to the USA as a 2017 model year vehicle. Alfa Romeo frankly needs the US market to reach its ambitious sales goals. Watch the video below which will make you certainly hope they do bring it over:
