    The BMW F87 M2 obviously is getting a lot of aftermarket attention and rightfully so as it is supposed to be the lightest track car in the BMW M lineup. It is not exactly light but for track junkies who want more downforce RevoZport may have them covered with their upcoming Raze M2 aero kit. Now, it's becoming kind of a nuisance when companies continue to release renderings instead of actual pictures of their products. Does this look good? Yes, it sure does. It also isn't real. Where are the pictures of the real thing? RevoZport states they will offer an adjustable front lip, adjustable wing, and optional canards: Ok, very cool. How much downforce do these pieces add? How are they being tested? Do they have a windtunnel? Is it all just simulation? Is this for looks or actual track performance? The press release leaves a lot to be desired as far as answering these questions. In 2012, RevoZport introduced the first ever complete aero and performance kit for the BMW 1M at SEMA. The program was a great success and highly regarded as one of the best designed aftermarket upgrade for the BMW 1M. The design shaved 60kg of weight through by replacing some panels with carbon fibre ones and changing the exhaust into titanium. The performance was staggering on track. Today, the BMW M2 (F87) is faster, has wider track-width and more power, so naturally it needs a mean looking aerokit to live up to its performance. This time RevoZport took most of the elements from its predecessor and added even more. At the front, we have a 3 way adjustable front splitter (Street, Sport and Track setup) with cooling vents routing cold air directly to the brake discs. The canards around the front bumper vents area ram more air to the oil cooler and keeps the engine cool at all times while the vented hood is proven to extract hot air directly from the radiator. All of which are designed for the purpose of keeping the motor at its optimum temperature during hard driving. On the side, the door sills extends the front part of the rear wheel arch to give that muscular fender-flare look that reminiscence a Porsche 911 Turbo 3.6. Towards the back, you will see the GT spoiler designed with a swan neck mount which from the CFD (Computer fluid dynamics) shows that the support mounted from the top of the spoiler blade actually produce better downforce than from the bottom. Finally, the vented diffuser is designed not only to provide better ground effect but also can help vent the heat from the exhaust muffler.

    Tony put the prototype set of GC+ BB on the high speed today to run them through some paces before they go on the car. Here is a quick blip up to 200,000 RPM then back down(turn the volume up). Enjoy :)

    Can you honestly say you can't relate to this? After a weekend of partying FIAT heir Lapo Elkann (grandson of FIAT founder Gianni Agnelli) was arrested in New York due to faking his own kidnapping and attempting to extort a ransom. As it turns out, you can rack up a rather large tab during a drug filled binge with hookers. How large? $10,000 which should be chump change for him. The problem is his family cut him off. Why? Because of too much partying with hookers. I mean, if you can't spend your weekends snorting lines off a hookers ass what is the point of being an heir? Apparently Lapo did not understand the way for spoiled brats to make money in this country is to release a sex tape and then become independently wealthy. Have we learned nothing from the respectable success stories that are the Hiltons and Kardashians? Running up a bill you can't pay partying with a transgender escort is simply not the way to go. This is not the first time this has happened as back in 2005 Elkann barely survived a heroin and cocaine overdose when again he was partying with tranny prostitutes. You can't make this stuff up: Life must be pretty hard for this guy. Having a cushy executive job at FIAT due to nepotism and waiting to inherit a family fortune is just too tough of a life for some people. Source

    I spoke with the tech at the shop. He pulled 2E77 and all 6 cylinder misfires from the ecu. I have 2step on the jb4. Is it possible that the 2step is messed up or that the jb4 unit has malfunctioned? It's either that or the ecu randomly fried itself (which I'm really fucking hoping is not the case.) Has anyone's ever read anything like this?

    So not much of a sacrifice vs. a 2.9 Whipple Twin Screw but this should be more efficient at lower boost levels.

    Bad news folks, in my excitement I did not notice that the N55 manifold has the same restriction on the cyl1 runner as the N54 manifold does and would therefore provide absolutely no advantage...Pic I posted above certainly doesn't show this neither do any of the pics I managed to find online but believe me its there alright... :/ Sorry to get everybody's hopes up, I was absolutely sure the N55 manifold would have fit!

    I just want to know pricing and weights already. My HRE C90's weren't cheap but I bought them due to their looks, weight, and strength. These do all of those things better plus HRE is played out.

    So many blown calls in that game. Bradford should have gotten that call but he also should have made a better pass. The Cowboys can be beaten though and should have been beaten.

    Vikings got shafted by 3 blown calls in the final 3(?) minutes of that game. Not sure how the fumble got overturned, the ball never crossed the goal line on the Dez TD, and Bradford was hit in the face, hard. Yet no call. and it was right in front of the official

    Is there a vacuum tap for the N54 blowoff valve located on the N55 manifold or do you think that ECU location with the blockoff plate will be a good place to draw that from?

    Article states N63TU is available in 2012+ models? Wasn't the N63TU introduced to the 550i in 2014? IIRC, it is available in 2012+ 650i's. This is quite a value. Based on that power and weight, this should be an easy 130 mph car in the 1/4 mile.
