    Hey guys, We got the white car (6MT) back up and running strong and thought we'd revisit some GC numbers for your viewing pleasure. Car specs: Built Short block Stock head with bad valve guide seals GC turbos BMS DP's Custom Exhaust dual 3" into 4" Shotgun Single Barrel VTT Rear Silicone intake Custom VTT front intake VTT DCI Custom VTT Catch can set up EOS Intake manifold with built in PI Custom LPFP set up 100% E85 for fuel MHD tune by V8bait FLASH ONLY ADE Intercooler AEM AQ1 data logging set up with Dual EGT, Dual BP, Manifold Pressure, FMIC In / out temps 6MT (4th gear logs) Numbers: Now, on to the numbers. Note that we're referencing boost from the AEM logs (screen shots attached) in lieu of MHD reading it in the charge pipe, which isn't accurate. The AEM map sensor is calibrated and tested to be accurate. Datazap of course references the MHD values for those who care. 765 was made on 29.3 psi at redline 740 was made on 28.5 psi at redline 693 was made on 25.4 psi at redline 655 was made on 22.8 psi at redline Dyno Charts: 765 whp dyno: 740 whp dyno: All 4 dynos on one graph: AEM Screenshots: 765 whp AEM Screenshot: 740 whp AEM Screenshot: 693 whp AEM Screenshot: 655 whp AEM Screenshot: These numbers speak for themselves, but any comments from competitors or their pawns about these reaching a bottle neck around 650 whp should be recognized as the marketing gibberish that it is. These turbos are very efficient. 600 wtq at 3500 rpm and no wheel spin on the dyno! Datazap links: 765WHP - 740WHP - 693WHP - 655WHP - MHD Logs: Video: (sorry for poor quality vid)

    Now this is a hell of an achievement. To put it into perspective this is power equal to a built motor ESS VT3 supercharger setup except achieved on a stock internal S65 V8 and with far more torque. Quite simply, turbos are far better for the S65 V8 platform than centrifugal blowers. Why? Greater efficiency and less stress. Rather than manually spinning an impeller and increasing stress on the front of the motor the exhaust gasses are doing the work but you already knew turbos were more efficient. In the S65 V8 application you get the benefit of being able to push harder in the power and torque department on the stock internals. 708 wheel horsepower and 495 lb-ft of torque at the wheels are stock internal S65 V8 records: No doubt 100% E85 fuel helps here as well. The fuel system is upgraded for this of course. What turbos and how much boost? A pair of GT3076's at 11 psi of boost. These turbos obviously can be pushed much harder but the question would be how much further before the engine let's go? Who wants to find out? Just look at the curve. It's a thing of beauty. Yes, it is purposely tuned to not have a huge torque hit down low (they considered other turbochargers for this application) and offer nice and flat torque delivery once spooled until redline. Just imagine what a built motor curve with double the boost pressure will look like. This is also tuned on the stock DME as well which is truly remarkable and shows considerable skill and experience with the factory ECU. The S65 V8 turbo era is officially here.

    With the carbon buildup issue that some direct injection gasoline engines are suffering from (Not sure if later GDI designs took steps to reduce this, like special coatings?) is there any quick and easy way to check the intake valves without pulling so much hardware off. For example, could the silicon elbow be removed from the charge pipe and a bore scope threaded up past the thottle body? Will the TB be closed when the engine is off? (I'm not an expert). I'd like to get mine cleaned if it's needed but I'd hate to book it in and have all the bits taken off to find it's fairly clean. I run meth and an oil catch can. Sometimes E85 mixes.

    The Convert started a thread MHD question in N54
    So, I'm getting ready to switch to MHD from the Cobb AP. The AP is still married to the car at the moment, but I want to get my "licenses" purchased so I have everything ready to make the switch. When I connected my tablet to the car I got the error below when trying to access the MHD store. Is this because the AP is still married to the car, or is my cable, also shown below, the problem? For reference, I have used that cable before for connecting to the car to code injectors. Any help is appreciated.

    The N55 motor is coming into its own. After years of hiding in the N54's shadow the BMW N55 3.0 liter I6 turbo motor is earning respect. Just look at what Enzo Performance with their single turbo kit using a Garrett GT3586 turbocharger is getting out of the motor. 632 horsepower and 525 lb-ft of torque at the wheels: Yes, that is with port fuel injection. Keep in mind this is hardly the end of the line as they are achieving these numbers on 25 psi of boost. Further details below. Sorry for the delay. Just gathering all the bits and pieces of the kit we need to get these rolling out. For starters we have been getting a lot calls regarding how our kit compares to other "bolt-on" stock replacement turbochargers. The very simple response is it doesn't, in anyway. 1. For starters our package removes/disables the electronic waste-gate(EWG), factory Diverter Valve and MAF sensor. Our unique ECU Calibration allows for a CEL Free operation, no drive-train malfunctions, no faults with added use of a TiAL wastegate and an optional TiAL BOV. The ECU calibration allows for a MAFless operation that now uses speed density (MAP Sensor). 2. Our Tubular Manifold utilizes a V-Band flange. Making switching turbine housings possible along with changing complete turbo assemblies, GT30,GT35,GT40 etc. Did we mention our manifold is completely designed and fabricated in house. 3. The Garrett 3586 included in our kit comes alive at 25 psi (it can operate upwards up to 40 psi) 4. All oil and coolant lines are custom assembled in house using only the best AN hoses and fittings. We decided to go with AN due to the reliability and flexibility of changing line configuration depending of vehicle model. 5. At low boost (16-18psi) we experienced 560whp, 26psi psi, 632whp. With proper fuel, ignition, clutch, engine upgrades power levels closer to 750-800hp are completely possible. Our kit will include the following. -3586 Ball Bearing Turbocharger -Enzo Performance Tubular Manifold -Custom Coolant and Oil Lines/AN Fittings -Custom downpipe/Wastegate dump and hardware -Enzo Performance Custom ECU Calibration. -TiAL Wastegate and optional BOV -Custom Charge and intake Piping with High Flow Air-filter. -Hallman-Pro Boost Controller with Vacuum fittings and Lines We are limiting our Group Buy purchase price to the first 20 participants. We already have a few names on the list so please email if you are seriously considering our package. Current group buy pricing will begin at $7685. Expect that number to approach closer to $9650 when the group buy is over. For any questions please give us a call 631-920-6699 or email us today. We look forward to pushing the N55 platform, please join us Oct 2nd Sunday BBQ for a more in depth look into our turbo kit. Recommended supporting modifications. -Port injection -Enzo Performance TiAL BOV kit -Upgraded In-tank E85 Fuel Pump -JB4 For logging and Map switching @info@enzoperformance

    We all know the Tesla Model S P100D is quick off the line. GPS test numbers showed 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and 0-100 in 6.5. The 1/4 mile trap speed on the VBOX used for the GPS numbers showed 124.5 GPS trap speed timing often inflates trap speeds versus real world drag strip numbers. That is the case here. The Tesla is still fast but on an actual strip runs 10.825 @ 122.93. The Huracan manages 10.843 @ 127.23. The two cars and very close and it really comes down to reaction time for the win. The Tesla is hard to beat right off the line but you can see just how much harder the Huracan is pulling past the 1/8 mile. From a roll, the Tesla has no chance. Certainly impressive performance from the P100D but it is a bit of a one trick pony.

    With MotorTrend wrapping up their Best Driver's Car 2016 competition having all the cars together provides for a great opportunity to do a big drag race. They have been doing this every year for the past six years following the competition and who can blame them for the extra content? Obviously, some of these cars are more at home on the roadcourse (*cough* Viper ACR *cough*) than the dragstrip and that should be the focus but this drag race is undeniably fun. While they call this the world's greatest drag race (such creative self-promotion guys) it does not take place on an actual prepped drag strip. They use the tarmac at the defunct El Toro airbase in Irvine, California. This surface does not lend itself well to the rear wheel drive cars and MotorTrend doesn't seem capable of putting on the world's best roll on race to get both perspectives. Ok, ok, enough nitpicking but it is important to highlight the conditions in a drag race. They throw in a Charger Hellcat and cut the Aston Martin (lame) for good measure and we're off. No surprise that on the dusty old runway the all wheel drive vehicles lead of the line. Now, as this is not done a dragstrip do not take these 1/4 mile times as representative of what you can hit on the strip. They are timing the cars electronically and the times are inflated due to this. We have yet to see a stock Huracan or R8 V10 Plus top 130 in the 1/4 mile on the dragstrip. Now, due to the traction issues let's list the cars in order of trap speed to truly get an idea of who is the fastest in a straight line: McLaren 570S - 132.0 Audi R8 V10+ - 130.3 AMG GT-S - 126.7 Viper ACR - 124.7 Acura NSX - 123.6 Nissan GT-R - 123.4 Jag F-type SVR - 122.7 Porsche 911S - 120.5 Shelby GT350R - 118.9 BMW M4 GTS - 118.8 Camaro 1LE - 114.2 The 570S is the real straight line champ and if you actually properly launch it you will watch it destroy an R8 V10 Plus in a drag race.

    My GC's have been installed for nearly 3 months now with no issues at all and as of right now I'm targeting 23lbs of boost on 93 pump and the car feels AMAZING. There isn't much action where I live so once a friend told me that guys from out of town were looking to come to us for some action, I was all in. The owner of a white ZL1 Camaro (unknown mods) came up to me asking what all I had done and I gave the same response I always give.. "Some bolt-on's and a tune"... He responded with "so about 400 maybe" and then asked if I wanted to run. I kinda felt like he was hoping to play bully but it didn't work in his favor lol. We did 3 runs before the night was over.. A 40 roll and 2 digs. Each race just ended worse for him. He wanted to run a 4th time but I told him I was done for the night. With that being said, I know some of you have your issues with Tony but VTT puts out products that perform excellent and I'm glad I was patient when it came to deciding which route I wanted to go with my turbo upgrades. Now on to the only half way decent video my friend recorded of one of my runs with the ZL1. *All footage was recorded in Mexico*

    E36luv started a thread For Sale: VM 6466 Single Turbo kit in Buy/Sell - Parts
    I have decided that I don't need to have two BMW FI builds going on at the same time so I am selling this kit that I bought used. (I am focusing on my e36 build for now) I never installed it but if I remember correctly it has approximately 5k miles on it. The compressor housing is polished and the 3.5 down pipe merges to the stock exhaust. Manifold and downpipe are wrapped in DEI heat wrap. I will post pictures this weekend. Brand new this would cost $5795 without shipping. I am asking $4,995 shipped. That is at least $1,000 off and you won't have to wait for the kit to be built it will ship right away. Description of parts from VM - 2 piece 304 Stainless SCH10 top mount manifold all Tig welded by hand and purged. -3.5" 304 Stainless downpipe (The only kit offered with a 3.5" downpipe on the market) -304 Stainless dumptubes or recirculated wastegate tubes -2.5" Aluminum charge pipe -Water pump inlet tube with Billet flange -Your choice of Precision Ball Bearing Turbo -2 Tial MV-S wastegates (I am an authorized Tial distributor so you can be assured they are genuine TIAL and not a knock off.) -Single Turbo BMS airfilter -Mac Solenoid with PNP harness - -4 AN stainless braided hoses and fittings for all of the wastegate reference lines (Also the only kit to offer this, this is very important given how tightly packed everything is in the hottest portion of the engine bay.) -Coolant Tank relocation brackets - Billet Oil drain flange --10 AN stainless hardline oil drain tube -Billet adapter for oil feed to the block -Billet block offs for the coolant ports in the head -6 feet of heater hose and fittings to relocate the coolant tank - -4 Stainless braided hose for oil feed with fiberglass insulation to shield it from the heat -Hardware for manifold where shorter nuts are needed and well as all the required bolts and clamps -2 2.5" Silicone Couplers and clamps -90 degree Silicone Coupler for the water pump inlet - Turbo Blanket
