    This is a dyno of new RBs. The regular old version that have been balanced to 0.2 grams throughout the RPM range. OEM tolerance is 1.5 grams, High performance tolerance is 0.5 grams. These should be able to take a big beating These turbos also have the Thrust Upgrade. This Mustang dyno supposedly reads very low and most are not happy. After the first pull the guy asked me is this right? I said what? He said the dyno it seems very high 475 535. (all pulls in 4th gear. 1st pull 475 535 2nd 472 531 3rd 474 532 the Cobb stg2 aggressive 351 395.) I said I was hoping for 500 he then said this thing is a beast 470s on this thing is an animal. Temperature out was 78 and muggy so was hoping for better conditions. 475 535 was the highest run even though it is not on the sheet, he put my first ever Cobb stg 2 aggressive on there for comparison to now. Its impressive to say the least. I will be at the track Thursday night to see what she can do the 1/4 in. Ok to Terry first thank you for all your help this is a BMS flash that has some tweaks from Ken AKA Wedge, we had to get torque down to allow shifts from 4th to 5th and get fueling scale up for the map. Wedge thank you very much. 4th gear pulls RACE_AT: For use with E85, Methanol Injection, and/or Race gas mixtures Ken Wedge made some adjustments to the above map for fueling and torque issues where it would not shift from 4th-5th at times due to to much torque. 2007 E90 AT JB4 G5 Back end flash Ken Wedge Tweaked FBO HFS Meth kit RB turbos E85/93 E40 blend

    Motiv Motorsport posted a dyno overlay that provides perspective on the difference between two of their N54 single turbo kits and also the impact of their port injection fueling system. The 750 kit in the graph below is using E50 ethanol without the port injection fuel system. The Motiv 900 N54 single turbo kit is using the port injection supplemental fuel system combined with E48 ethanol. The difference between the two is substantial and the supplemental fuel is obviously necessary to hit the figures. Motiv 750: 705 wheel horsepower 680 lb-ft of wheel torque Motiv 900 with supplemental port fuel injection: 829 wheel horsepower 781 lb-ft of wheel torque This overlay is certainly interesting to see as we already saw the record setting Motiv 900 dynograph which touched off a spirited discussion in the BimmerBoost forums. A video has since been added which is below. The automatic transmission is obviously not capable (yet) of reliably handling any of these figures but solutions are being worked on.

    Nice race from our Russian friends here pitting the new breed of German twin turbo V8's up against each other. On the BMW side we have an F13 M6 with a Stage 2 tune from PP-Performance. The CLS63 AMG M157 is tuned by someone who rebrands other tuners tunes. Yes, for some unknown reason MHP still exists. The last time we heard the name they were selling Weistec tunes as their own. From what we have heard first hand, Weistec has distanced themselves from MHP. This 'tune' could be anything considering how MHP and Andrew Cluck have been passed around from tuner to tuner as if he was a drunk sorority girl at a frat party. Well, let's focus on how the cars do instead of how diseases get spread. There are three runs and in the first the CLS63 gets a nice jump. The M6 is able to reel it in and looks like it is starting to pull only for the CLS63 to let off due to traffic. The second run offers a more even start and the M6 again starts to pull. By 167 miles per hour it looks like the M6 has a good 5+ car lengths and is continuing to pull, impressive. The third run is the best of the bunch as the cars have the most even start. The M6 again pulls up top and continues to pull by 167+ miles per hour. In a roll on race like this the M6 has a couple advantages on the CLS63. To begin with, it is lighter by roughly 250 pounds. Additionally, the DCT transmission in the M6 shifts faster. Without seeing a dyno from each car it is difficult to exactly state how these factors affect the race but the result is the M6 pulling decisively on the runs.

    So remember when Vargas Turbo Technology teased that they started work on a turbocharger upgrade for the S55 3.0 liter turbocharged inline six in the new F80 M3 and F82 M4 just two weeks ago? Well, they are already done and the hardware is heading to EAS for testing. Yep, this happened absurdly fast. However, let's all hold our horses and expectations. The problem will not be the hardware, VTT has that part down as the pictures so. The problem as always is the problem on modern BMW's will be the electronics and tuning. Regardless, good things are coming for the new M cars already and it is simply a matter of time before this all works as it should The question mark is how much time. Vargas Turbo Technology: We are happy to announce our first set of S55 turbocharger upgrades are complete, and will be going out tomorrow. We chose EAS as our tester, and they will installed / tested on their current record holding S55. We are excited to see how they do in the new platform! :dance:

    One of our Billet Stage 2 customers took his 135 to track and laid down a solid pass that will only get better with practice. 11.6 at 120MPH. Looking forward to you getting your 60 ft time down and dropping that ET! This car was tuned by PTF/Motiv using the Cobb AP. You can head over to the motiv site for more info.

    The F80/F822 M3/M4 are 11 second cars and here is the proof. Really, this should not be surprising for anyone with wheel horsepower in the 420 range and wheel torque in that same range. There is more than enough grunt to get a stock car into the 11's with a good launch and favorable conditions. Deep into the 11's as the 11.66 @ 119.240 pass shows. The 1.759 60 foot definitely helps and is certainly great for OEM street tires. ATCO in New Jersey is also known for good prep so combine that with some torque off the line and there is your 1.759. These are all variables but in the opinion of BimmerBoost.com the race gas is having the biggest impact here. The ECU is designed to adjust based on fuel quality and will to a degree advance even on the stock tune knowing the detonation threshold is higher. A log or even just a pass with pump gas and race gas would sure shed some light on just how big of a difference the fuel is making but we know how well modern direct injected turbo cars respond to higher octane. A lot of favorable factors here (-350 feet density altitude) making for a record setting stock F80 M3 1/4 mile recipe.

    Congratulations to BimmerBoost member akh23456 for topping his personal best and also according to our information setting the fastest F10 M5 trap speed seen on the 1/4 mile drag strip thus far. With bolt on modifications and race gas he me managed a 11.580 @ 130.08 1/4 mile pass at the ATCO strip in New Jersey. His best elapsed time hit 11.321 @ 128.57 although the trap speed dropped with the better traction off the line. These two slips are a good illustration of how trap speed and elapsed time relate and can be swayed by the launch. @akh23456's modifications consist of MS109 race gas, custom Undercover Performance catless exhaust system, and a BMS tune. Well done and congrats:

    The Good: Long story short RBs are pretty beastly I am trapping 6-8 mph faster than I use to at the track. Comparing Apples to Apples my buddy in his JB4 FBO back end flash car was trapping 116-117 best a 118 at 11.8. A FBO 135 Jake Cobb Pro Tuned car was only doing 112-114 with his best being a 12.1 at 115. So some perspective on the night and an Apples to Apples comparison before I get the ones chiming in I trap 123 on stockers. I doubt that will be done where I run at and this is how the BMW's run here including myself and others. My time slips from last night vs my Last run with my stockers The Bad: I could not launch hard in 2nd due to torque shutting down power then allowing it to shift into 3rd then I would be out like a rocket ship. And yes I have an Alpina Flash Wedge suggested the 2011 Alpina Flash so who knows. Its still a work in progress to figure out how to get all this power to work together while doing a 1/4 mile run. The car is super fast in rolls and great after 2nd has shifted during launches. I will need to play with limiting boost in 2nd for optimal launches without hitting a torque shut down. If I can do that this car is easily 11.1-11.3 car its just a beast but she has to be harnessed. I have GO Pro vids but I need to edit them down so they do not take hours to load on youtube. In the race against my buddies 335 you cans see how 2nd gear falls flat then it shifts catches boost in 3rd and I am out. The UGLY: Another buddy in his E92 stick on his very first pass he tried to launch and broke an axle, UGLY. Anyone have pointers for loading GoPro vids to Youtube?

    I wanted to put these turbos to a boost test, here is a 29-30 psi across the board pull, I popped a small boost reference hose to the gauge first pull, which tees to AEM map sensor so it shows lower boost after the shift, but its only because the map wasn't seeing full boost as the hose to the gauge popped off. If anyone had any questions on can stage 2+ hold a LOT of boost to redline, they can, and they can do it pretty easily. You take a BP hit as you see its at around 66psi, just slightly over 2:1. Timing for this boost level is pretty damn solid too, holds 10 degrees to redline, after the shift holds 8-9 all the way up. I will take this all day as well. I fixed the hose and you can see on the next run its showing 30 psi in 4th as well as it was getting the full boost signal. Notice how manageable EGT's are even at these boost, and timing levels, the car is pretty happy here. These can actually hold more boost if I want, but 28 tapering to 25 psi seems to be a good curve for BP, turbo longevity, etc, and where I will prob run them daily. Please keep in mind, the less boost you can run to get to your power goals, the longer your turbos will last. http://www.datazap.me/u/vargasturbot...3-256&mark=202

    Great results here on a built motor supercharged E46 M3 which belongs to BimmerBoost member BMtroubleYOU. He got his S54 engine built by VAC Motorsports who dropped the compression to 11.0:1 (the OEM S54 is 11.5:1). He also added the VAC Motorsports Stage 1 ported cylinder head. Next up was a VF-Engineering VF570 kit which includes a Vortech V3si blower. As the motor is built he upped the boost to 14 psi along with 50/50 water methanol injection. The result is an impressive 633 wheel horsepower pull although there is a bit of a spike at the end. Regardless, there are multiple pulls over 600 wheel horsepower and this is one of the strongest supercharged E46 M3's in the world. Full details in the owner's own words below along with the dynographs. Gentlemen, After all these deployments and First Sergeant duties, I finally got to finish my project.

    First I would like to say, thanks Wedge for hooking me up ;) it was truly appreciated @Josh@Cobb thank you sir for your support @dzenno@PTF your blogs, posts, and suggestions from the olds days, before your became PTF and current were a values and you had, and still have a follower that learn much from ya @enrita thanks for starting this thread, and thanks to everyone who contributed. http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthread.php?25074-HOWTO-COBB-ATR-discussions-maps This was just a scrimage to go out and see what the car was capable of doing in a 1/4 mile run. I was not aiming for ET here, but aiming for speed traps instead. There was just too much torque for street tires on this tune, and I found myself feathering the car half way through 3rd gear. The backend would not stop moving around so I could not give it 100% throttle more till it settled in 4th. Indeed I will make adjustments for this next time. Ill have to designate this map for road kills instead I screwed up big time when I added too much race gas to compensate for the trouble my LPFP was having with anything above E30 at this power level (FUEL-IT STEVE HELP ! :angry-banghead: ) . In the end I had like E20 after adding the race gas :( . However I noticed using race gas my IAT got high quick as apposed to using E50-E60 my IAT never saw anything above 150° when pegging the needle. My IAT was climbing to 160°f at the end of the track :facepalm wtf. So that was just a waste, I should of just maxed out my trims for the hell of it so my timing wouldnt have been pulled(no my AFRs stay put even if trims max out). I was targeting 13° timing in the top and lost a good amount of power when timing corrections started Yet again the South Florida weather and humidity is absolutely no joke, its like always being in a sauna. Keep in mind my car is "not cattles" I have the cP-e downpipes with HighFlow 200 cell catts, and OEM mid catts, I weigh 250 lbs and I had just over a half a tank of gas, no meth, full street trim, and no weight reduction. There will be another 335is that will be running the same tune with cattless downpipes, upgraded LPFP, and the driver weighing significanly less than myself, better DA and weather.

    As most know, Fuel-It! has been working with Vargas Turbo Technologies and MOTIV Motorsports to develop a new product to meet your needs. Now that their products are about to start shipping we would like to officially announce the release of "THE HULK". (shown with optional return) This is no ordinary fueling solution for any ordinary car! Just like the monster lurking under your hood, this beast is just waiting for a chance to shed it's civil demeanor and show you what its capable of. With "THE HULK" installed and restrained, you can resume your normal daily activities. While commuting this dual stage pump's primary is controlled by the DME and the secondary lies dormant. However, the moment you mash the throttle, it's true colors show themselves and the secondary comes to life releasing "THE HULK" within and leaving everyone green with envy. With up to four times the flows of the stock low pressure fuel pump, this assembly can handle whatever you can throw at it.....and then some! A few specs and particulars... Primary... Pump: Walbro 450 Control: PWM via the DME E85 certified: Yes Flow: 1.0GPM @ 13.5V Secondary... Pump: Walbro 450 Control: User defined E85 certified: Yes Flow: ​2.1GPM @ 13.5V Installation... Stage 3 is installed just like the stock LPFP and the electrical and plumbing connection points are all stock. The primary runs off the stock electrical system and there are no modifications made. The secondary requires the installation of an additional wiring harness. We will be providing the wiring, relay, and fuse assemblies for this installation. It will be up to the user as to how they trigger the secondary. Those running JB4 will be able to utilize the "nitrous trigger". Those running port injection may choose to use their secondary PI controller to trigger the secondary. For those running dual HPFPs or some other configuration, you may choose the optional Hobb's switch to control the secondary via boost. Options... FPR: To assist those customers that will be running an external Fuel Pressure Regulator (FPR), we will offer an optional return line connection point and a stock FPR block off kit. The location of the return has been optimized to flow back in to the bucket to be recycled under high demand and is a simple quick release fitting. Hobb's switch: As mentioned we will also have the option to purchase a normally open Hobb's boost controlled switch to control the secondary. You can view these options on our website and we are taking pre-orders that will begin shipping Nov. 3rd. Supply at this time for both domestic and international customers is limited due to the availability of core assemblies. Consequently those orders will ship in the order in which they were received. We appreciate your patience while we build up those inventories and work to meet demand. http://www.fuel-it.biz/e-series-stage-3-lpfp-upgrade-options/

    I'm running a variant of the bms E85 flash modified for E60 with a 3D scalar with some help from Justin (v8bait) and wanted to know how much the 3D scalar helps for fueling efficiency I'm running the inline lpfp upgrade w/ stock cats (just had two new turbos installed under warranty) my trims seem fine and since I'm catted I was wondering if the 3D scalar is really helping me at all. Anyone dyno the same flash with and without a 3D scalar? I've been optimizing my flashes for 1/8 mile runs (only safe distance I have to test) as well as logging with the jb4. Haven't seen much difference between the 3D vs non-3D scalars settings. Also, who else is running aggressive backend E85 flashes with the stock cats? How much timing and what kind of afr targets?

    The next generation Audi R8 will essentially mirror the Lamborghini Huracan. This should be no surprise to anyone as the current generation Audi R8 is essentially a reskinned Lamborghini Gallardo with the option of a V8 under the hood. However, the current generation R8 is available with a manual transmission although that is set to change. As the Huracan is not available with a manual the R8 based on it will not be either likely as a cost cutting move. Heinz Holleweger who is the managing director of Quattro GmbH stated, "There is almost no desire from our customers to have a manual gearbox. In the R8, the take-up of manual gearboxes is currently less than five per cent." We can not blame Audi for not including a manual if customers have not shown they want a manual. As far as what to expect for the new R8 Holleweger stated, "You can look at a Lamborghini and think of that." Source

    Ford, you have our respect. It is very cool to see a company that gets enthusiasts and knows they want performance out of their cars. Seeing Ford Racing take a trio of new 2015 Mustangs to the dragstrip and pushing them is just so damn cool. Talk about an enthusiast friendly company! Guess there is a reason the Mustang comes with a line lock right from the factory, eh? The new Mustang has an IRS (independent rear suspension) so Ford wants to prove the car is still capable on the strip despite the loss of the live rear axle. The Ford guys state they like drag racing as it stresses the drivetrain and that certainly is correct. Their idea is to exceed the production parts with the Ford Racing parts but make sure reliability is retained. Definitely cool and definitely cool to see the parts tested on the dragstrip. So how did the new 2.3 liter Ecoboost do? Ford Racing gave it a rear subframe kit, heavy duty half-shafts, drive shaft safety loops, exhaust, ECU tuning, and drag radials. The result? A 12.56 @ 109. That is seriously impressive and should alleviate any concerns about a four-cylinder Mustang. Next up they did bolt on modifications to a Mustang GT 5.0. Essentially the same set of modifications as with the Ecoboost model although they also added headers. With a very nice launch on the slicks they hit an 11.77 @ 116. Easy 11's for the GT 5.0 which is no surprise. Last but not least, how about a blown Mustang GT? The supercharged car went 10.97 @ 128 in the 1/4. The fact that Ford modified their Mustangs and took them out to the strip to post results is simply awesome. Imagine BMW or Mercedes doing that.

    Car magazine is reporting the details on the m2 and they sound interesting! 0-60 in 4.2 seconds, dct, and a detuned twin turbo 6 from the m3/m4! 369bhp / 384 lb tq. Could they really put a detuned s55 in this car? Would they be that dumb? If they did, i'd buy one in a second! :D http://www.carmagazine.co.uk/Secret-new-cars/Search-Results/Spyshots/BMW-M2-2015-Munichs-new-baby-hotshot-revealed

    This really is not shocking but it does hint at a changing of the guard. Hybrid sports cars are here to stay and we will see technology trickle down across various manufacturers. In the case of Porsche it is very easy to see where it will happen. Technology, engineering, and testing employed with the 918 Spyder will find its way into the 911. There is no longer debate about hybrid sports cars they are here and they work astonishingly well. The decision is not official for the a hybrid 911 but in a recent interview Porsche CEO Matthias Muller stated, "This hybrid technology has two reasons: one is CO2, but another reason for us for this technology is sportiness. As we have proved in the 918 Spyder … it can work. So it can also be a solution for 911.” He is right, the 918 Spyder proves it can work. By 2018 the idea of a hybrid 911 will pretty much be standard thinking. The more likely question being asked regarding the next generation 911 is if a non-hybrid version will be available. Source

    Well here is (and that was quick!) Eisenmann's full valved exhaust system for the new F80 M3 and the F82 M4. The Eisenmann system is a complete downpipe back system and includes valved options. It is also available as a rear section only of course and is modular if you wish to add pieces as you go. BimmerBoost premier vendor IND-Distribution has the full release and pictures below. The only additional thing BimmerBoost would like to see is a before and after dyno showing the power gains on the system although an improvement in the S55 engine sound quality alone makes a full exhaust more than worth it. Please visit www.ind-distribution.com for further details or contact @Ilia@IND @Nate@IND or @IND-Distribution on the forums for pricing and purchase information. When inspecting the F8x M3/4 in any amount of detail, one thing becomes abundantly clear- in their quest for the perfect M car, BMW left no stone unturned, no issue unaddressed, no aspect of the car’s behavior un-optimized. Technology and art in engineering has enabled BMW to create an absolutely spectacular M3, a car that’s capable of plush comfort when driven normally, and life changing performance when driven in anger. Simply put, the M3/4 is BMW’s latest masterpiece, and has made all of us at IND fall in love with BMW M all over again. Watching BMW create and engineer their new F8x inspired us and Eisenmann Exhaust Systems GmbH to respond in kind. We knew that we could not simply connect a series of pipes to a generic canister and attach exhaust tips at the end. Every aspect of the design had to be analyzed, evaluated, and perfected until the exhaust system as a whole was absolutely flawless. Eisenmann did not approach the design of this exhaust system with the idea of beating their competitors- Eisenmann’s only peer in this race would be BMW M itself, and no stone could be left unturned. Today, we are happy to introduce Eisenmann’s own masterpiece, the F8x M3/4 Eisenmann Heritage valved exhaust system. Eisenmann’s Stuttgart-based engineers have leveraged 30 years of heritage as Germany’s premier exhaust manufacturer as well as decades of experience as OE designers and manufacturers for Porsche and AMG to create the M3/4 Heritage exhaust system. Each system is constructed from high grade 304 stainless steel, with a specific attention to wall thickness throughout to create the best combination of fantastic sound and reduced weight. The canisters are machine-pressed into a shape specifically designed for the F8x M cars using a series of deep draw dies, resulting in extremely high canister rigidity and contributing to Eisenmann’s signature tone. The canister shape was specifically created to completely eliminate the canisters from the rear view of the car, drastically improving the appearance of the F8x cars. Multiple internal flow paths work in unison with BMW’s Comfort, Sport, and Sport Plus ECU programming, and enable Eisenmann’s valve control to have a variable but drastic effect on the exhaust system’s personality, yielding a quiet tone while cruising and a fearsome growl under full load. Eisenmann’s Heritage system is available as a rear section or complete exhaust system, enabling M3/4 owners to choose their sound level in stages. The complete system will include everything from the exhaust tips to the BMW downpipes, allowing for a bolt-on solution for easy installation and an aggressive sound. Improved flow capacity gives the exhaust system sufficient overhead for future modifications, removing any restriction in the system and enabling the F8x’s S55 powerplant to make even more power. The new “Signature” tip combines what was great about BMW M’s design with the classic Eisenmann LeMans style to create something that is both at home on BMW’s new M car and also an homage to Eisenmann’s own classic tip designs. Eisenmann’s new “Signature” tips are specifically designed to emulate the style of the BMW M tips, to allow our clients to remain within the M realm of design and appearance, while simultaneously having something very unique- the added “LeMans style” inner tip is an Eisenmann hallmark, and has been unique to Eisenmann for over a decade. In short, we are confident that this is the best Eisenmann F8x M exhaust possible. We are thrilled to present the new F8x M3/4 exhaust system to M enthusiasts worldwide!
