    We finally got around to finishing up the testing our on S55 Stage turbo's, and the results as we expected. We picked up the Stock motor S55 power record, previous it was 728, we made 734WHP, and 729WHP on two different pulls this am. We also managed to make 762WTQ on a more aggressive throttle map. Also if anyone wants to say glory pulls, here are 10 runs all above 700WHP from yesterday and this am. The 734WHP, and 729WHP runs were made on the E30 OTS BM3 map, no special tuning, the problem is the E30 scaler is too low up top, and even with PI adding a ton of fuel, we are just plain out of fuel. Dzenno gave us a map with better E85 scaler, more aggressive throttle, and 2-3 degrees less timing, it picked up the tq down low, and it pulls clean all the way up every run. The E30 OTS map is prob a little aggressive timing wise for these boost levels so we wont run it there, custom maps are always better for these levels. As you can see car is making 500WTQ by around 3300, and 700 by 3800K. This is a solid 500+ RPM better spool than the other turbos you see on the market. A big thanks of course To Dzenno at BM3 for the help, its fun working with him again! Also to Terry, Mike at EOS, and Bell intercoolers for the great intercooler. Not to mention the owner who let us use his car as a test bed! There is one S55 making more power at 745WHP (11WHP more), which is a fully built motor, fully ported head, 9 second race car, and one car making more Power / TQ at 763WHP/776WTQ (14WTQ more) and its running a 100 shot of NOS. Impressive? We think so...:eusa-clap: We will be getting this car to the track, and 1/2 mile events very soon.

    Today I went to a private exotic car quarter mie drag race at a 3,000 foot runway and finally, got to try out my Champion 68mm VTG Turbo Upgrade with race gas (Sunoco GT 260 Plus) and my new rear R888s. Wow! Between the R888s and the Turbo upgrade with race gas the performance was in a complete different universe than on Stage 2+ with stock turbos, race gas and regular summer tires.The car finally hooked every time on launch and accelerated like I have never felt before. There was no timing by but the 1/4 flag my speedo indicated 140 mph -- 10 mph faster than I have ever done on that runway with my car.I had 9 races. I won all of them except against a 1000 plus hp Jeep on high boost that was towed to the event and during the race I lost to him was making a very loud whooshing sound which I thought was supplemental fueling. As the attached videos show the margins of victory were massive. Thank you Tom and Champion!!!Here are the vids:1. *EDIT* Videos are below

    VTT (Vargas Tuning Technologies) is mostly known on BimmerBoost for their N54 work but their S55 turbo upgrade program is getting going. Really getting going as their Stage 2 turbocharger upgrade set a new stock internal record for the S55 motor at 734 wheel horsepower and 762 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. More details from VTT below: We finally got around to finishing up the testing our on S55 Stage turbo's, and the results as we expected.

    Recently switched my supercharger from ESS VT2-625 to the AA Gen 2 Level 3. Car made around 600whp/400wtq; and ran 11.4 @ 129mph with no launch control and pump gas 94 octane with street tires P4S. Pretty impressed with the switch over to the Rotrex so far and air to air heat exchanger.

    ABR Houston is able to build your N54 motor in a variety of ways. They have several options to choose from. As the N54 is an open deck block some high power N54's run into issues with cylinders flexing under load. Basically, you can start here and choose options for your build: http://www.abrhouston.com/build-your-own-n54/ Let's go over three main options: THE MERCENARY $1999.95* Bare Bones Closed Deck Block What’s Included? CNC closed deck conversion Hone the cylinders to equal size and provide the cylinder bore size Replace oil galley plugs Deck the cylinder block with our custom deck plate THE HITMAN $3349.95* Closed deck conversion with crank installed What’s Included? CNC closed deck conversion Hone the cylinders to equal size, and provide the cylinder bore size Deck the cylinder block with our custom deck plate Check and if needed, straighten crank Refurbish the crankshaft, and polish the journals Replace oil galley plugs Clean all oil passages Inspect crank sensor tone wheel Measure and decode block and crankshaft Balance crankshaft and pistons to .5 gram Replace main bearings Replace and torque bedplate bolts Replace and torque main bolts Install front and rear main seals Install bedplate injection plugs, and seal bedplate Check turning torque of rotating assembly THE PUNISHER $4999.95* Assembled Short Block With Stock Rods & JE Pistons Exchange engine program! The fastest way to get back on the road! What’s Included? CNC closed deck conversion Hone the cylinders to equal size, and provide the cylinder bore size Deck the cylinder block with our custom deck plate Check and if needed, straighten crank Refurbish the crankshaft, and polish the journals Clean all oil passages Replace oil galley plugs Inspect crank sensor tone wheel Measure and decode block and crankshaft Balance crankshaft and pistons to .5 gram Install stock compression JE pistons File fit piston rings to each cylinder Replace Main bearings Replace and torque bedplate bolts Replace and torque main bolts Install front and rear main seals Install bedplate injection plugs, and seal bedplate Check turning torque of rotating assembly Depending on options things go up from there. You can add headwork, Pauter rods, or Schrick cams for example. The end goal is up to the customer. In today's age of big power N54's engine builds are becoming far more common. ABR Houston in particular has a lot of experience in this area.

    The proof is in the timeslips, isn't it? You can argue about dyno plots and mix and match results to try to claim one E9X M3 S65 V8 supercharger kit is better than another but it is very difficult to argue against someone trying out two different kits and posting the results from the same car at the same track. That is exactly what BimmerBoost member @dnotorious did. In his own words: The Rotrex blower of the Active Autowerke kit offers much more mid-range torque than the Vortech V3si based ESS-Tuning kit. There is something to be said for area under the curve. Look at his dyno plot: 621 horsepower at the wheels on a Dynocom but look at that torque curve. BimmerBoost has said it once and will say it again, Active Autowerke offers the best looking torque curve for a supercharged S65 V8 in the business. That is of course speaking of a stock internal S65 which the Rotrex blower seems to pair perfectly with. Ok, dyno plots are one thing. What about actual 1/4 mile times? He picked up ~5 miles per hour of trap speed and 3 to 4 tenths of a second on street tires: Feel free to argue with the timeslips but picking up that kind of trap speed is no small feat. Great comparison data and great independent results.

    Maybe the factory BMW S63TU turbochargers can be pushed this far but is it really a good thing? To hit a glory pull peak figure like this would require pushing the turbos far out of their efficiency range. The number looks nice on the graph but is this really realistic F10 M5 performance? This is the claimed mod list: F10 M5 on Stock Turbos and No BEF JB4 and BMS chargepipes MSR intakes Akrapovic exhaust Fabworx downpipes Custom meth system installed by TNT Racewerks Tuned by TNT Racewerks MS109E with 3 gallons of e99 M1 Meth Tuners and owners alike need to get out of the habit of posting a cell phone snap of a dyno plot and then claiming some sort of record. Where is the torque curve? What is the correction factor? Where are the boost and air/fuel graphs? Where is a log? How lean is this thing running? If someone wants to claim a world record with this they can go ahead but there does not appear to be anything to be proud of here other than a meaningless glory pull. A quality tuner would never put their name on it.

    How is this Liberty Walk widebody fad not dead already? Well, LB Performance claims another victim but this time it is a W204 C63 AMG coupe. The said thing is Mercedes-AMG already makes a widebody C63 called the Black Series which looks and performs much better than this hacked together kit. What is the purpose of this kit? To show the world you like to ruin your cars performance? What wind tunnel testing does it undergo? Exactly none. This is the epitome of German rice. The CFRP body pieces run roughly $17k plus paint and install. Save the money, buy a C63 Black Series, and don't look like a tool.

    Well, UGR (Underground Racing) is the king of the 1/2 mile. You should already know this if you view this website. In June of last year they pushed a Gallardo to 240.641 miles per hour. In September they topped themselves increasing the 1/2 mile world record to 247.25 with a twin turbo Huracan. Topping 250 was only a matter of time and they did it with a 250.27 mile per hour pass this past weekend. What do you say? Nothing. You just respect it. As far as the modifications UGR tends to keep those details close to heart. We do not know the horsepower or specifications. At this level they only seem to be playing against themselves. The ultimate top dog is the M2K Motorsports Ford GT which does 293.6 in the mile but the all wheel drive Lambos have a traction and shift speed advantage in the 1/2 mile. Either way, cars are getting absurdly fast.

    This Porsche 991.1 Turbo S belongs to BoostAddict member @sdg1871. His car is tuned with a GIAC Stage IV flash for upgraded turbos. He has a 68mm VTG turbo upgrade from Champion Motorsports along with their intercoolers and a Tubi exhaust. The car is quick especially off the line which shows in the runs below. He easily beats just about everything he runs as nobody can match the launch. Well, only the all wheel drive Jeep Cherokee SRT with over 1000 horsepower can. The two McLarens are easily dispatched: Next up are a pair of GTR's. The blue one has bolt ons. A 997 turbo with unknown mods tries its luck: The only car that poses a real challenge is this Jeep. The 991 fights it off when the Jeep is on low boost but with the boost turned up the Jeep impressively wins. Talk about a stoplight terror:

    It depends how you look at it. Is $85k for the quickest production car in the 1/4 mile a lot of money? Absolutely not. Never before has the world's quickest production car been available at such an affordable price point (in today's dollars). If you look at it as $85k for a Dodge Challenger then, sure, it seems like a lot of cash. Maybe you are one of those people who would rather buy a standard Hellcat and modify it yourself. Maybe the Demon's 2.7 liter blower is not big enough for you and you want a 4.5 liter Whipple? What you get for $84,995 from Dodge is a car that will dominate on the dragstrip while being backed by a factory warranty. Dodge is even being pretty funny about the options. The Demon Crate with dragstrip tools and the race gas tune costs $1. Yes, $1. A front passenger seat will cost you $1. What about rear seats? Also $1. Want a trunk liner? That's a dollar too. There are options costing more than a dollar such as a leather interior at $1595, an upgraded audio system at $995, and a $4995 power sunroof that someone has to be absolutely nuts to order. Overall, the Demon is still a huge performance value at $85k. Dodge deserves a ton of praise.

    Been looking around and can't seem to find any solid aluminum trans mounts, found the engine mounts only. Anyone else have experience with solid mounts on this platform ? I'm open to opinions and suggestions. I already have 335is engine mounts and e46 trans mounts, barely made a difference IMO.

    An F10 M5 or F13 M6 with an S63TU 4.4 liter V8 twin turbo tune makes for a beast of a car. The thing is, even with a tune an M5 or an M6 is at a disadvantage compared to an McLaren MP4-12C and its 3.8 liter twin turbo M838T V8. Why? For one, the McLaren is just over 1000 pounds lighter. That is a massive weight difference. Secondly, the McLaren has better aerodynamics. The sleek design simply has less surface area. Add in the 8500 rpm redline, tighter gearing, and dual clutch transmission and you can see why the car is tough to beat even in stock form let alone when tuned. The M6 gets a slight jump in the beginning but the MP4-12C quickly passes. It continues to pull and looks to open up a lead of roughly 4-5 car lengths. The MP4-12C is actually a great tuning value on the market right now especially when compared to newer McLaren models.

    Sorry in advance if this question is too basic for this forum. Driving 2015 MB c400 with ecu stage1. Using an icarsoft mbII obd2 reader i get a real time maximum absolute manifold pressure of around 60 in Hg (2bar) at WOT. Is my max boost pressure 60in minus 29in (1 bar) or am I running 60 in Hg of boost (i hope not)? 1 bar seems more realistic.

    As some know I spent a lot of time building/ having built a 335 sedan and it was recently totalled. Build thread for that car: http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthread.php?61466-Single-Turbo-Build I picked up a 2008 135i M-sport and am calling it "RSRECTN" (ressurection if you don't get it). Going to swap everything from the 335 to the 135 and if I can get it done in time I'll have the DCT built and put it in Here are some pics of the car. It's not detailed or anything just pictures i have from the dealer and one that I took. Dark blue with shadow trim (i think that's what it's called)

    BMW with a major new model often does a concept car that hypes and shows off the design language. Now, this is an early leak so more photos along with higher resolution pictures will come but the first thing to remember is that the real thing will not look like this. They will try to get close though. You get a basic idea of the direction in which they are headed with the 8-Series. Also keep in mind, the 8-Series is expected to replace the 6-Series. Why? Well, apparently the 4-Series keeps moving up in size and the 8 is close enough to the 6 to create redundancy. However BMW works it out do finally expect a real M8.

    Not sure what the going rate should be on these at this point. I've had them in the box for a long time. Have never gotten around to installing and wife now wants pop up camper. I have these turbos. I also have new and unused the VTT-N54-INSTL install kit valve. And new VTT-SIL-1 Silicone Intake Kit. I paid $230 for the install kit. Paid $499 for the intake kit. The Stage 2 turbos - these are described on my invoice as Stage 2 Hybrid Turbocharges - Batch 2 and come with upgraded TD04 thrust option and GTX Billet compressor wheel option. Tony took these back and did a pre-emptive leak fix that he said these might need and then sent them back to me. Again I never installed them and they are still in original box and packaging. I paid $3527 for the turbos. So I'd like to entertain offers on these items. I can provide pictures if you wish. If there is a $ amount that can be agreed upon I'd send a PayPal invoice. These would be sent with signature confirmation and tracking. I will also be selling a LSD kit made by Factory - also new and unused - in a separate listing. Luca

    MotorTrend reviewed the 2018 Lexus LC500 and there are certainly some areas where Lexus deserves praise. For one, they launched a premium coupe with excellent styling inside and out. Additionally, the car maintains 50/50 weight distribution which is something even BMW struggles with these days. That is about it though. For the $92,000 starting price the performance does not match up to the MSRP especially in today's market. The naturally aspirated 5.0 liter V8 under the hood is nice but it is inferior to the 5.0 liter naturally aspirated S85 V10 BMW offered over a decade ago. How is the Lexus supposed to compete with modern twin turbo V8's which dominate the segment? It can't. Lexus tossed in their same V8 they have been using forever and did not bother to develop a new engine. Why did they spend all that money on developing the LF-A V10? Why not stick a variant of that motor in the LC and truly make for something special? This same old 2UR-GSE 5.0 liter motor was overmatched since the IS-F days back in 2008. Lexus should learn from Audi who finally ditched their 4.2 FSI V8. 50/50 weight distribution is nice but the LC500 is heavy. 4300+ pounds hardly makes for a nimble coupe. The car runs a 13.2 @ 110 in the 1/4 mile. That is not good enough. That is not enough to match a BMW 650i let alone an M6. It is not good enough to keep up with an E550 coupe. It is not enough to keep up with much of anything today. What does MotorTrend think? They think the car feels sluggish. They think the gearing is bad. Gearing is not going to fix the problems with it though. The steering feel is said to be dead. The brake feel is bad. What is there to say? This LC500 is a failure as a performance car. Lexus can market their 'F' brand as much as they want. They aren't fooling anyone. At least not anyone who actually knows what they are talking about. The LC500 is simply a superficial attempt that is more about style than substance. Back to the drawing board...

    The B58 is looking strong early on, isn't it? BigBoost is pushing the platform hard with their turbo upgrade offerings. Last month they set the horsepower record on the platform with a 534 rear wheel horsepower Dynojet pull and now they have increased that number to 571 whp. Keep in mind the tuning and turbo setup is a work in progress. This is not yet done but BigBoost is already pushing the B58 close to ~600 whp territory: As already stated more work and more dyno runs are to come but things look very optimistic for the B58.

    To back up our dyno numbers we asked the customer if we could take the car out for some 60-130 Vbox testing this am. He said no problem. I took the car out to my favorite private test track on my way in to the this am, and It quickly laid down the new record in only 3 tries! That was good enough for us, and I went on my way. The car prob has a 5.7 or so in it it we played around with shift points or found a road more level or with a down slope, but we will let the customer do some more testing. We just wanted to show this car is more than just dyno numbers. So we backed it up with some real world testing! S55 guys have a lot to look forward to from VTT, our cast S55 GC's are well into development, and should be available Q4 2017, or Q1 2018! :D
