    Tried to register today and its already sold out! I emailed Ryan about the waiting list, but haven't heard back yet. Did any other N54's get in or on the waiting list? Anyon have experience with the waiting list and the odds that people will cancel and spots will open? I would be coming from washington state so it'd be nice to have alittle notice.

    So today I finally received my Motiv clutch kit(which looks very high quality), but since I don't have a lift to do the clutch job with I need to get a reliable shop somewhere around the Ventura County area. I'm willing to drive pretty much anywhere within reason I just don't want to pay a ridiculous price for the labor/have the job done incorrectly, so does anyone who lives out here have a trustworthy shop they know of? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I have not checked, but has anyone figured out how this button works? Does it assign a whole new map or does it just modify the existing maps? Can the overboost time limit be changed? Can it be used as a toggle between maps intead? Is there a way to give this button an entirely new purpose (Meth/N02/exhaust cutout activation/step up launch control RPM)?

    We dismiss most tuner claims that are not backed up. Considering this comes from Evolution Motorsports who does very well in the Porsche world we will take them at their word for now. However, why claim 1500+ horsepower without any proof? It's possible that this car is involved in a bit of racing where sandbagging is prevalent. That raises the question of why they said anything at all though as stating 1500+ horsepower certainly is not exactly creating much mystery. People may also be wondering why anyone would do a turbocharged GT3? Well, there are several advantages. For one, the car is lighter than a 911 Turbo. Secondly, it revs much higher and comes with higher flowing heads to begin with. You boost a GT3 and you can make more power with less boost than a 911 Turbo. With equivalent air flow, the GT3 should always make more power in theory. Once building the motor for pure power it actually makes all the sense in the world. All we have is this teaser picture clearly showing one of the pair of turbos hanging off the rear. We would love to have more details on this car. EVOMS: "She's alive! Evolution Motorsports latest creation. 4.0L 1,500+ HP Porsche997 ‪#‎GT3‬ Built by John Bray, Matt Perry and fabrication by Al Berini. Can't wait to run this beast and tear up the half mile"

    Hey guys, when installing a new LSD, one of the most asked questions is "where can I get bearings/seals/bolts?". till now, only the axle seals have been readily available (due to being available directly from BMW), but most are finding it extremely difficult sourcing new Diff Bearings and Ring Gear Bolts as these were not available from BMW. as the fastest growing BMW Differential Specialist in North America, we are now making available these once-hard-to-find parts, regardless of which brand LSD you decided on. Why change them? Well, if you are going to be spending $1000+ on a new LSD, you may as well refresh the supporting components while you are in there, rather than re-use the old ones: Axle Seals - Genuine BMW. These are a 100% requirement when installing an LSD Ring Gear Bolts - Custom Bolts. Offer peace of mind at a low cost Diff Bearings - OEM FAG (Small Taper) and NSK (Large Ball). Although not a 100% requirement, we do highly recommend changing your Diff Bearings at the same time as installing your new LSD as these are a wear item; something which you will probably never change again unless you were to open up your pumpkin. Failed Diff Bearings can and will destroy your pumpkin internals Small Diff Ring Gear Bolts - $49.95 inc free shipping within the US. Outside US, please PM me for a shipping quote Small Diff Ring Gear Bolts + Axle Seals - $99.95 inc free shipping within the US. Outside US, please PM me for a shipping quote Small Diff Bearings (pair) - $199.95 inc free shipping within the US.

    This comparison may open some eyes as well as elevate Volkswagen's performance standing. The 2015 Subaru WRX STI is an absolutely awesome car and a nice tuning platform bargain considering the all wheel drive and turbocharged 2.5 liter boxer motor offering 305 horsepower for $39,290. The Golf R slightly undercuts the STI at its $37,415 base price but it is practically a wash between the two. The Golf R however has a smaller 2.0 liter inline-4 engine with 292 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. The power difference is marginal but the advantage the Golf R has is the DSG dual clutch transmission versus the STI manual. So which is faster in a straight line? The Golf R but only slightly due to its 104.9 mile per hour trap speed. The STI manages a 104.4 so this is basically a driver's race considering they both get a 13.1 second elapsed time. What about how much each weighs? Well, this is close as well. The STI checks in a 3367 pounds and the Gold R at 3384. How much gas is in the tank can change which one is lighter so again basically a wash. This brings us to the handling prowess. Both cars do the MotorTrend figure 8 in 24.9 seconds but the Gold R pulls .85g compared to the STI .79g. This is very interesting considering on the skidpad the STI averages .97g and the Gold R averages .94g. This should tell you that the Golf R transitions better. This shows on the roadcourse as the Golf R laps Laguna Seca in 1:46.01. The STI does it in 1:47.16. A difference of over a second? That is not small folks. The laptime may be misleading as the Golf R grabs a nice chunk in turn 6 and its transmission certainly helps as well. Regardless, the Golf R is over a second quicker around Laguna Seca. This segment will really heat up once the Ford Focus RS gets in the mix. For now, the Golf R makes a strong case for the top position. However, the STI is still the choice as the true driver's car with its manual transmission and stiffer suspension. It is going to be fun seeing the Focus thrown into the mix with these two. 2015 Subaru WRX STI (Limited) 2015 Volkswagen Golf R POWERTRAIN/CHASSIS DRIVETRAIN LAYOUT Front-engine, AWD Front-engine, AWD ENGINE TYPE Turbocharged flat-4, alum block/heads Turbocharged I-4, iron block/alum head VALVETRAIN DOHC, 4 valves/cyl DOHC, 4 valves/cyl DISPLACEMENT 149.9 cu in/2,457cc 121.0 cu in/1,984cc COMPRESSION RATIO 8.2:1 9.6:1 POWER (SAE NET) 305 hp @ 6,000 rpm 292 hp @ 5,400 rpm TORQUE (SAE NET) 290 lb-ft @ 4,000 rpm 280 lb-ft @ 1,800 rpm REDLINE 6,700 rpm 6,500 rpm WEIGHT TO POWER 11.0 lb/hp 11.6 lb/hp TRANSMISSION 6-speed manual 6-speed twin-clutch auto AXLE/FINAL-DRIVE RATIO 3.90:1/2.94:1 4.77:1 (1-4); 3.44:1 (5-6,R)/2.79:1 SUSPENSION, FRONT; REAR Struts, coil springs, anti-roll bar; multi-link, coil springs, anti-roll bar Struts, coil springs, adj shocks, anti-roll bar; multi-link, coil springs, adj shocks, anti-roll bar STEERING RATIO 13.0:1 9.5:1-14.1:1 TURNS LOCK-TO-LOCK 2.5 2.1 BRAKES, F;R 13.0-in vented disc;12.4-in vented disc, ABS 13.4-in vented disc;12.2-in vented disc, ABS WHEELS 8.5 x 18-in, forged aluminum 8.0 x 19-in, cast aluminum TIRES 245/40R18 97W Dunlop Sport Maxx RT 235/35R19 91Y Bridgestone Potenza RE050A DIMENSIONS WHEELBASE 104.3 in 103.5 in TRACK, F/R 60.2/60.6 in 60.7/59.7 in LENGTH x WIDTH x HEIGHT 180.9 x 70.7 x 58.1 in 168.4 x 70.8 x 56.5 in TURNING CIRCLE 36.0 ft 35.8 ft CURB WEIGHT 3,367 lb 3,384 lb WEIGHT DIST.,F/R 59/41% 60/40% SEATING CAPACITY 5 5 HEADROOM, F/R 37.2/37.1 in 38.4/38.1 in LEGROOM, F/R 43.3/35.4 in 41.2/35.6 in SHOULDER ROOM, F/R 55.6/54.2 in 55.9/53.9 in CARGO VOLUME* 12.0 cu ft 52.7/22.8 cu ft (beh f/r seats) TEST DATA ACCELERATION TO MPH 0-30 1.3 sec 1.5 sec 0-40 2.3 2.3 0-50 3.2 3.3 0-60 4.6 4.5 0-70 6.0 5.8 0-80 7.5 7.5 0-90 9.7 9.5 0-100 11.9 11.7 PASSING, 45-65 MPH 2.5 2.3 QUARTER MILE 13.1 sec @ 104.4 mph 13.1 sec @ 104.9 mph BRAKING, 60-0 MPH 108 ft 108 ft LATERAL ACCELERATION 0.97 g (avg) 0.94 g (avg) MT FIGURE EIGHT 24.9 sec @ 0.79 g (avg) 24.9 sec @ 0.85 g (avg) 2.21-MI ROAD COURSE LAP 107.16 sec 106.01 sec TOP-GEAR REVS @ 60 MPH 2,400 rpm 2,250 rpm CONSUMER INFO BASE PRICE $39,290 $37,415 PRICE AS TESTED $40,790 $39,910 STABILITY/TRACTION CONTROL Yes/yes Yes/yes AIRBAGS Dual front, front side, f/r curtain Dual front, front side, f/r curtain BASIC WARRANTY 3 yrs/36,000 miles 3 yrs/36,000 miles POWERTRAIN WARRANTY 5 yrs/60,000 miles 5 yrs/60,000 miles ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE 3 yrs/36,000 miles 3 yrs/36,000 miles FUEL CAPACITY 15.9 gal 14.5 gal EPA CITY/HWY/COMB ECON 17/23/19 mpg 23/30/26 mpg ENERGY CONS., CITY/HWY 198/147 kW-hrs/100 miles 147/112 kW-hrs/100 miles CO2 EMISSIONS, COMB 1.01 lb/mile 0.75 lb/mile RECOMMENDED FUEL Unleaded premium Unleaded premium REAL MPG, CITY/HWY/COMB 21.6/24.9/23.0 mpg 21.8/30.9/25.1 mpg * Cargo volume is computed differently for sedans and hatchbacks, hence these figures are not directly comparable
