    Hello all, I rarely post on the forums but a few months ago after one of my stock turbo went dead, I decided it time to upgrade! I contacted Todd Cope at The Horsepower Barn in Washington for their AD Engineering Single PTE 6262 Turbo Kit. The price was right and it the quality of the kit looks very good so I went ahead and ordered it. It took about three months for me to get the kit but it was due to the carbon fiber intake tube that needs to be custom made from scratch so it took a while but it was well worth the wait. I had Sammy installed the kit for me since he has done a ton of turbo swaps and knows what’s he doing when it comes to BMWs and cars. Two days of hard work and he’s was done with the transplant of my motor. The turbo is in and the engine is back in its engine bay. We quickly put it on the dyno to have Jake at Motiv remote dyno tune the car. There were some issues with my spark plugs and 02 sensors so after a many pulls Jake called it a night and we ended up with 480hp/430tq on pump. Jake said the turbo is very efficient and we still have a lot of room for more power after I get all the little bugs taking care of. Overall I am very happy to get my car back and that everything went smoothly. When I got behind the steering and start driving the car for the first time, it felt really smooth until at about 4k rpm when the wastegate open, the car just screams power. It’s a blast to drive my car again now. My buddy who was driving behind me said my car sounded like a bike, it’s loud. I even let my buddy who owns a c6 Z06 drove the car and he was impress! He’s a BMW hater but after driving my car his impression was he really like it a lot and said it feels faster than when it had it FBO with E85 stack with JB4 and custom tune. He actually wants to buy a 335i now after driving my car. When you put the hood after driving the car hard the engine bay feels a lot cooler after compared to the stock twins. I am still working with Jake to dial the tune to get more power on pump so I’ll update you guys when I make more power. I managed to get a video of the dyno run but no graph :( . A lot of thanks to: Todd Cope and Andy Divers at The Horsepower Barn & AD Engineering Sammy at Sammy’s Auto Services Jake at Motiv

    Introducing the new GTRS4 BMW F82 M4 widebody kit from Vorsteiner. The kit is similar in style to their GTRS3 widebody kit most have seen for the E92 M3. Vorsteiner gives the F82 M4 very aggressive wide rear fenders as they did with the E92 M3 which certainly makes the car look much more aggressive. The photos certainly looks great and the design is solid. BimmerBoost will give impressions on how the kit looks (and the fitment) in person at the SEMA show in Las Vegas next week where the kit will makes its official debut.

    Dodge did something pretty incredible when they stuffed the Viper's V10 under the hood of the Ram SRT10. A V10 powered sport truck with beefed up suspension, a manual gearbox, and rear wheel drive certainly got enthusiasts talking as it was a pretty radical idea at the time. Dodge has the opportunity to do something incredible in the performance truck world again thanks to the new 707 horsepower supercharged Hellcat V8. The Dodge Ram with this engine would be very quick to say the least. Unfortunately, this is not going to happen at least not anytime soon. With the amount of torque from the Hellcat V8 all wheel drive would likely be necessary in a truck with little weight over the rear wheels. Keep in mind, the Jeep Cherokee SRT8 model is not getting the Hellcat motor either just yet and it is likely due to the all wheel drive drivetrain. The Ram Trucks CEO Bob Hegbloom when asked about if a Ram 1500 SRT Hellcat was on the way stated, “At this time, I would say no.” He did not rule the vehicle out completely so there is an outside chance we could see it. I'm sure he is thinking about the possibility just as enthusiasts are. You know you guys want to do it. Why not raise the sport truck bar again? Do it! Source

    Interesting past versus future matchup here. The Tesla P85 Model S as you well know is completely electric. It is the highest performance car in the Tesla lineup until the new all wheel drive P85D Model S hits the streets with its 691 horsepower. As you are about to see though, the rear wheel drive P85 Model S with its 470 horsepower is no slouch. While the Tesla may be the pinnacle of commercial electric automotive drivetrain technology the G-Wagon is a very different proposition. It is big, heavy, and it definitely releases a bit of exhaust gas into the air when the 5.5 liter twin turbo V8 is called on to move its 5800 pound mass. The G-Wagon has a modern twin turbo V8 from Mercedes-AMG under the hood but the basic design of the G is now over three decades old. These are two very different vehicles and that is what makes this run so much fun to see. The Tesla wins the drag race although based on the trap speed it sure seems like it lets off a little bit. 98 miles per hour? We have seen much faster results than that from it on the dragstrip. Regarding the G63 13.19 @ 106.87 pass that is about what one should expect from the stock M157 powered G63. The elapsed time being quicker for the 1400 pound lighter Tesla that gets instant torque from the electric motor should not shock anyone. Throw a tune on the G63 and the outcome changes. You could also up the voltage to the motor in the Tesla. Cars like the Model S are the future. Thankfully you can curb greenhouse gas emissions and still go fast at the same time.
