    Gotcha, makes sense, I didn't think of the rear charge getting heated between the turbo and IC. Can't wait to see what kind of power this kit on the built engine will put down!

    While not ideal, it should not offset it by too much. The front turbo also has a straight shot directly into the intercooler, while the rear has to go above the manifolds, even with the heat shield it will heat it slightly, so in the end, they are going to doing about the same work.

    Since the passenger side is pulling in significantly hotter air, does the front turbo have to work a lot harder or is the difference between the two turbos negligible?

    No clue man, people are not very smart at times. I threw you a pos rep to offset it.

    Following on from our tradition in developing on the M5/M6 platform (E39 M5 Headers, Intakes, Supercharger Kit and E60 M5 Headers, Intakes, Valvetronic Exhaust) we recently purchased our own F10 M5 and started developing on the FXX platform. First up is the ECU tune which currently has to be bench flashed. We do this in house at our UK HQ but will be setting some of our dealers in the US to carry out the upgrade for US customers. OBD tuning once the ECU has been bench flashed will be possible at some point but we do not have a time line for this yet. The results below are for our Stage 1 on 93 octane. We are developing a Stage 1 + and then a Stage 2 with our own DP's and Eventuri Carbon Intakes. Vbox times to follow for each stage as soon as the weather clears up over here :D 2013 F10 M5 completely stock Testing carried out on our Dyno Dynamics in Shoot Out mode. Peak Power is up 71 WHP with up to 85 WHP in the mid range. Torque is up 90 WTQ. Tunes include top speed delimit and Stage 2 will include CEL delete for cat less DP's. Wheel Horse Power Flyweel Power We are working on a more powerful tune for stock cars which will be Stage 1 + and will release it once we have carried out more road testing. Here is a teaser of the Eventuri Intakes that are in development. A separate post on these will be made soon.

    Any timed run to back to back test a product is an extremely bad way to do it, you have just introduced about 20 other variable, including driver skill, road condition, weather, slope, etc, etc, etc. A dynojet is very very repeatable, to do proper back to back testing it should be done on the same dynojet, etc. But this is just a way to show differences in power production based on a product, to get the actual real world results, add back in the variables posted above, and you will see why most people do not show solid real world results.

    Totally agree. There is alot going on behind the seens. I just simply meant that changing what the load value represents is better than letting it just max out and all your timing and fuel for anything past 22psi be by the last column ofthe map. At least that value represents a specific load. We are altering, not "hiding" boost. Onlynegetive iissues I've had with heavily scaling the map is driveability down low. With it heavy scaled the dme is reading down in he 110 cal load range and all those values (and tables behind the scenes) are out of wack. My solution was to acale the map non linear with the haltech. Worked like a champ. Map is unaltered until about 170 cal load and then starts scaling heavy with 220 representing 36psi. Axis breakpoints were added between 170-220 to increase tuning resolution. .. worked like a champ. Low range driveability is like stock again :)

    Can't wait to see it all of together and pushing boost. Who would neg rep this? I was just saying great minds think alike as I have the same inlet configuration.

    The owner of that 135 and i have raced plenty of times. His 135 weight less. My 335 is auto, his is a stick. I think that should even stuff out. I always get 1/2 a car to a car on him.

    ^That German kit looks pretty good, but only 397-450 hp? I got that just by building up my engine to 4.9L.

    Honestly I think it's time we got over dynometers for turbo comparison. It doesn't show realistic spool and the two dyno's can read so far apart. Maybe we should start comparing 60-130 V box runs with paired datazap logs wouldn't that be more ideal testing. Most of the people doing the testing will have the exact same supporting mods.

    Yes, we provide a turbo blanket with our kit. We leave the downpipe to the customer, they can either wrap it or ceramic coat or both. We do advise to wrap the downpipe at the minimum though, that will cause an AC rubber line to rupture unfortunately. Other than that, I have not heard of anything from anyone else, and I don't have any issues either.

    Dude, you have no idea how tight this kit is, the clearances are there, but they are small. While we had a big problem with them getting stuff done on time, the manifolds, and DP's Doc Race made, fit very very well. I am happy with them. Took a quick log this am at my track. As I tune the EBC Spool keeps coming up. Here are two logs, the first is stage 3 with turbos capable of 950 Lb/Min flow, or over 900WHP, second is a Stage 2+ log, with the same EBC, same solenoids, etc. As you can see Stage 2+ gets to 15 psi right around 3650, Stage 3 right around 3800... Only 150RPM difference :o Also we went WOT at around 1750 on stage 2+, while WOT for stage 3 right at 2K, this can usually spell a difference in spool. Spool can vary by run, depending on conditions etc, but the only way to honestly compare spool, is on the street, same gear, starting around 2K every run. We try to log consistently to have consistent logs for the tuner to work with. So far while very early on, the testing is coming along nicely.

    Do the JB4 :) I thought the same way and figured I would drive the car for a few months stock but that only lasted a few days LOL.. Probably more to do with the fact the JB4 was sitting in my inventory so I slapped her on. After putting it on map0 a couple times I can't imagine the car without it. Mike

    Cupra, I am not sure you have been following the N54 inlet developments, we have pioneered silicone intakes that run in the factory positions, there is more room against the firewall than previously thought. While a tight fit the inlets do a good job fitting back there. The Stage 3 inlets are 2.25". We have decided the inlets will stay where they are, one on the passenger, and one on the driver side.

    The McLaren P1 versus the Porsche 918 Spyder. Both of these cars have carbon fiber tubs and body panels. Both have small displacement, high revving V-8s packed between their passenger compartments and rear axles. Both use twin-clutch transmissions, carbon ceramic brakes, and active aerodynamics. Both have roughly 900 hp. Both are plug-in hybrids. And today, with the help of pro racing driver Randy Pobst, we find out which one is fastest around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
