    ///Monst3r started a thread PI METH in N54
    If using PI meth via fuel it type kit would it be better to run %100 or water mixtures. Just have concerns of too much water being injected when tuning for big numbers. (hydrolock, quench, running water through injectors,cylinder wash down). Lastly will the PI n20 tmap file for aic setting work with meth.

    I am going to be getting a built engine in about 2 weeks. Forged rods, forged pistons, and possibly some head work done. Slapping some GC turbos on it as well. I have everything taken care of but I am tossed up between 3 issues. 1. Port Injection - I have a MMP port injection rail, but no controller. I was thinking about just going with a AIC controller as many people run without issues, but not sure if I should go with the JB4 + Boost controller for safety? I don't think I have read any threads of PI issues using the AIC SS controller so not sure. 2. PCV - I just ordered RB PCV valve today, but was wondering about the taping of the head and adding the external kit. Is this something that should be done for a HP goal of 700? Or is this something like the OCC that just saves you from a little bit of work? 3. Coils - Should I upgrade to the PR coil pack? Or should I run my Delphi coils until I need to replace them and upgrade to the coil pack? Thanks!

    Porsche cutting costs and introducing turbochargers to the base 911 Carrera models creates a very interesting tuning opportunity. With the previous 991.1 generation 911 models one could not retrofit the X51 power kit from the Carrera S/GTS to the Carrera. Why? Because the S and GTS models utilized a naturally aspirated 3.8 liter flat-6 whereas the Carrera made due with a 3.4 liter unit. The X51 kit included new heads and cams that simply did not apply. They also did not provide much power for $18,5000 and the gains all came up top. With the 991.2 generation the Carrera, S, and GTS all share the same 9A2 3.0 engine. These specifications were previously detailed: 9A2 3.0 991.2 Carrera Horsepower: 370 Torque: 332 lb-ft Boost Pressure: 13.1 psi Bore x Stroke: 91mm x 76.4mm Redline: 7500 rpm Compression Ratio: 10.0:1 Intercooler: Air to Air Turbos: 49mm compressor/45mm turbine 9A2 3.0 991.2 Carrera S Horsepower: 420 Torque: 369 lb-ft Boost Pressure: 16.0 psi Bore x Stroke: 91mm x 76.4mm Redline: 7500 rpm Compression Ratio: 10.0:1 Intercooler: Air to Air Turbos: 51mm compressor/45mm turbine 9A2 3.0 991.2 Carrera GTS Horsepower: 450 Torque: 405 lb-ft Boost Pressure: 18.0 psi Bore x Stroke: 91mm x 76.4mm Redline: 7500 rpm Compression Ratio: 10.0:1 Intercooler: Air to Air Turbos: 55mm compressor/48mm turbine The hardware will work on any of the models as the engines are the exact same thing. Porsche just changes the turbos and software themselves. If you want the GTS turbochargers, Porsche will sell you them for $7500 along with the software to make them work and they back the power kit with the factory warranty. The only catch? You must have a 991.2 Carrera S. The Porsche dealer will not do the swap if you have a base car even though the turbos will obviously work. Why does Porsche do this? Because who is going to buy an S or a GTS if you can just order a base car for tens of thousands less and just add the turbos and software in? Well, that is why I opted for a base car. The problem is doing this swap without Porsche's blessing. After speaking with a Porsche dealer, they sternly said they will not do it. While the hardware will fit Porsche forces dealers to get their approval in Germany before whatever necessary software codes are released. You also need an S vin number. If you do this swap onto a base car you will lose your warranty and also will not have factory tuning software. Oh darn. PorscheBoost is going to try to make this swap happen. The part numbers will be available soon and a source stated the turbochargers alone from Germany can be had for roughly $3200 each. That means undercutting the hardware cost from Suncoast to $6400 rather than $7500. In theory, an aftermarket tune should be able to make the new hardware play nicely. The problem is that nobody has any real tuning solutions for different hardware. There may be enough leeway in the factory parameters to make it happen. Speaking with GIAC (the only company that has a flash tune for the platform) they said they have yet to read out a 991.2 GTS. A solution might be to try to flash the GTS software to a standard car. Maybe even an ECU swap will work. Either way, PorscheBoost will explore this option and report back after a meeting with GIAC. It is only a matter of time before you will be able to have 991.2 GTS hardware with far more tuning headroom on a base 991.2.

    Here are the test results from Car and Driver for the new 2017 Honda Civic Type R. How does it do? Well, it is fairly light at 3111 pounds and for a front wheel drive handles quite well. It sticks to road as the skidpad shows 1.02g. The brakes are very good as well as the stopping power gets the car from 70 miles per hour to zero in 142 feet. Good braking feel, good handling, and overall a nimble package. The 306 horsepower turbocharged 2.0 liter engine provides pretty good performance. A 1/4 mile time of 13.5 @ 108 isn't much in this day and age but this is a front wheel drive Civic we're talking about. That will not put it ahead of its rivals in outright speed and it will not win a drag race against all wheel drive competition but from a roll it should put up a fight. As far as the styling, well, if you're really into boy racer Civics this is the perfect car for you. Anyone over 25 years old would probably feel like a tool getting out of it. Is it worth the $34,775? Maybe. It definitely isn't worth the $60k some people are trying to get for it. VEHICLE TYPE:front-engine, front-wheel-drive, 4-passenger, 4-door hatchback PRICE AS TESTED:$34,775 (base price: $34,775) ENGINE TYPE:turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 16-valve inline-4, aluminum block and head, direct fuel injection Displacement:122 cu in, 1996 cc Power: 306 hp @ 6500 rpm Torque: 295 lb-ft @ 2500 rpm TRANSMISSION:6-speed manual DIMENSIONS: Wheelbase: 106.3 in Length: 179.4 in Width: 73.9 in Height: 56.5 in Passenger volume: 97 cu ft Cargo volume: 26 cu ft Curb weight: 3111 lb C/D TEST RESULTS: Zero to 60 mph: 4.9 sec Zero to 100 mph: 11.5 sec Zero to 130 mph: 21.7 sec Rolling start, 5-60 mph: 5.8 sec Top gear, 30-50 mph: 9.4 sec Top gear, 50-70 mph: 6.1 sec Standing -mile: 13.5 sec @ 108 mph Top speed (drag limited, C/Dest): 170 mph Braking, 70-0 mph: 142 ft Roadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 1.02 g FUEL ECONOMY: EPA combined/city/highway: 25/22/28 mpg C/D observed: 23 mpg C/D observed 75-mph highway driving: 29 mpg C/D observed highway range: 350 mi

    A stout N54 here going up against some stout competition. The E92 335i has a Motiv single turbo N54 kit and said to be making roughly 720 horsepower at the wheels. This is a manual transmission example as well. The 335i takes on a blown C6 Z06 first. It is also said to have about 720 whp but the 335i pulls it up top each run. Next up is the twin turbo Boss 302 Coyote said to be at around 14 psi of boost. Who knows what the full specs are but the Mustang has no trouble with the BMW. There is a run with a missed gear but even when the 335i shifts correctly it's game over. The final run against a twin turbo Camaro SS is cut off when the Camaro starts to pull away for whatever reason.

    This is a bit of a shock. DTM racing in Germany is more competitive than ever because Audi, Mercedes, and BMW are all participating at the same time. While it is competitive how interesting is German Nascar? The cars have nothing at all to do with their street legal counterparts. Mercedes-AMG decided that rather than continue to race in DTM it makes more sense to focus on Formula E. This site agrees with them. Whether you like it or not electric drivetrains are the future and the technology trickle down will be helpful. The decision makes sense. Mercedes-AMG says they will continue to compete hard until the end of the 2018 season. The future of DTM is obviously greatly impacted by this move.

    Jaguar offers something different in the segment which is a supercharged V8. Their European rivals all feature turbocharged V8 powerplants. It is nice to have a different option but the reality is from a performance perspective Jaguar can not compete. Is 575 horsepower a lot? Not really in 2017 when you factor in that BMW, Mercedes, and Audi all pretty much sandbag their output. Plus, they offer much more torque. Jaguar's modest increase of 25 horsepower and 15 lb-ft of torque over the previous model year does not mean much of anything. The 516 lb-ft of torque are sent through a ZF 8-speed auto which is a very popular box these days. The 2018 XJR575 will not top an Audi S8 in straightline performance but perhaps Jaguar is looking for a buyer than wants something lighter and more nimble. At 41XX pounds the XJR not only undercuts the BMW 7, Audi A8, and Mercedes S-Class significantly it is even lighter than the mid-size offerings from the Germans. This may be the most fun to drive car in the class.

    Well, it is safe to say the Eaton TVS2300 based Magnuson Heartbeat Camaro SS LT1 supercharger system is provided a large performance boost. You may remember the Maguson Heartbeat kit at only 6 psi being good for a 10.8 @ 128.53 on a stock Camaro SS LT1. Well, turn up the boost with associated modifications and you can get into the 9's. They gave this Camaro upgraded injectors, an upgraded fuel pump, a meth injection kit, and race gas. It is still on the stock LT1 internals. Here is the result: Not bad at all. BoostAddict member @LesBaer is running this kit and has not reported any issues. A great way to significantly boost the performance of the Camaro SS.
