    Hot on the heels of MotorTrend's 2017 Best Driver's Car competition comes their World's Greatest Drag Race where they have the contestants face off in a straightline contest. They did make one change though by replacing the Miata (which had no chance) with a Tesla Model S P100D. Racing from a stop is the Tesla's game. It shows as it gets a lead off the launch with the 911 Turbo S hot on its heels. Surprisingly, nobody is able to pass the Tesla in time. It runs a 10.5 @ 125 (GPS time) in the 1/4 mile. This is what happens when you do not have a prepped strip or drag rubber for powerful RWD cars. The rest of the times are below in order of trap speed but as stated BoostAddict.com believes the Ferrari is a ringer based on real world results from owners.

    The concept of this manifold has been on my mind for over 3 years now. I designed/machined the first of these o-ring sealed, direct connect ITB couplers in 2015, in attempts to fab a welded tube runner/sheet plenum manifold for an inhouse project. Fitment and my abilities then could not bring it to fruition, FINALLY the holds have been removed, and the Fab Factory S54 ITB - FULL BILLET - intake manifold is here! Manifold will be available in a few different versions: 1) OEM/NA fitment - will include/incorporate factory MAF and PCV connections ** A full intake can be included at additional cost. E46 S54 & Z3M S54 fitment 2) HPF replacement - connections mirroring the old HPF manifold - ICV/meth/IAT 3) Boost/Turbo - for custom turbo setups 4) 12 Injector ** All manifolds will include 1/8" NPT tapped and plugged ports on each runner for port nitrous or port methanol injection ** Retail pricing for turbo applications will start @ $1,995.00, NA applications @ $2,195.00 First manifolds will be available in approx. 3 weeks. I will be accepting preorders NOW @ presale pricing starting at $1,795.00 In order to take advantage of presale pricing, you must email me directly, Shawn@Fab-Factory.com and finalize details of your manifold before 10/13 (3 weeks from today). Payment will not be required until your manifold is ready to ship! And now the goods ...

    drepai started a thread 919WHP 6870 N54 in N54
    Saw this on Instagram, figured I'd share it here since it's a platform record as far as I know. Looks like a fully built MOTIV long block and a DOC Race 6870 tuned by EMP Tuning. A full graph/logs/specs would be cool.

    MotorTrend's Best Drier's Car competition is always interesting to watch. The videos are well done and they provide plenty of data. The field they choose is not always the most logical though. What the hell is a Lexus LC500 doing in this competition? Also, why is there no BMW? That omission may be BMW's fault more than that of anyone else. Just taking up space that could be used for a serious entry. Regardless, it is a pretty good lineup with all eyes on the 488 GTB. Let's list the entries in order of curb weight from lightest to heaviest: Mazda MX-5 Miata RF - 2420 lbs Porsche 718 Cayman S - 3190 lbs McLaren 570GT - 3346 lbs Ferrari 488 GTB - 3412 lbs Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport - 3464 lbs Porsche 911 Turbo S - 3557 lbs Mercedes-AMG GT R - 3680 lbs Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio- 3749 lbs Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE - 3837 lbs Nissan GT-R NISMO - 3904 lbs Aston Martin DB11 - 4194 lbs Lexus LC 500 - 4364 lbs The Miata undercuts the field considerably and the Lexus LC500 almost weighs 2000 pounds more than the Miata. Wow is it fat. This competition is about what is the most fun to drive but it is always interesting to see which car is the fastest. They are listed below in order of their trap speed and with additional data panels: The Ferrari is the fastest? That is a load of BS. Either Ferrari sent a ringer or MotorTrend is cooking the numbers. There are plenty of videos out there showing the McLaren 570S dispatch the 488 with ease. This alone calls into question the validity of the comparison. Regardless, here are the cars in order of their laptime around Laguna Seca: Ferrari 488 GTB - 1:31.68 Mercedes-AMG GT R - 1.33.01 Porsche 911 Turbo S - 1:33.21 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE - 1:34.30 McLaren 570GT - 1:34.87 Nissan GT-R NISMO - 1:35.01 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport - 1:36.02 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio- 1:39.65 Porsche 718 Cayman S - 1:40.05 Aston Martin DB11 - 1:40.05 Lexus LC 500 - 1:43.40 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF - 1:51.43 The 488 GTB which trails the AMG GT R on the Nurburgring considerably opens up a large lead on the AMG GT R at Laguna Seca? Something doesn't smell right here. MotorTrend chooses the 488 GTB as the best driver's car but it does not feel right. The Ferrari dominates all the performance categories along with the subjective ones. If one were to guess, Ferrari provided the car only if they got this outcome as they have previously controlled MotorTrend's testing. BoostAddict doesn't buy the result and neither should you. Watch the videos from the cars below and come to your own conclusion.

    Who said this was the finished product? I took that picture months ago of a 3d scaned stock VC.

    Agreed. Would like to hear more as well in this department.

    I think so too but I want to engage more "sequential fans" to better understand what is supposed to be better and come up with some way to quantify it with testing.

    You can offer both versions for believers and non-believers; but, I will definitely pay the $100 dollar premium for this.

    Might be worth it just to offer the option in that case.

    We only picked weldon because it has a proven track record, is whisper quiet and only draws 5.5amps I made a little circut for it and it only turns on after it detects oil pressure and only turns off after the oil pressure has dropped below 5psi as thats when the one way ball valve stops flowing to the turbo This way this pump will never run dry or let the turbo pool up with oil

    But that kid stuff is keeping the scene alive, as much as I don't like it. If it weren't for the influx of novice there would not be progression. It is the JOB of the elders and more seasoned to inform and educate them. Don't simply write them off or ignore them in hopes they will go away. As per the VC, it's a scan as mentioned. Basically the same thing China does for part production ... and everyone is so willing to pay for a copy of a somewhat flawed OE part in a different material? Naive much? Now if this VC prototype would block the port breathers W/O tapping then I would see benefit, ease of use, as well as simplifying the PCV process. But it doesn't. It's simply a drunken scribble on a bar napkin.

    It's just a minor change on the JB4 port injection add on driver and harness. Instead of $300 might be $400, for example.
