    That's more like it! Powerhaus Performance raised the E9X 1/4 mile bar with a spectacular 10.46 @ 135.13 1/4 mile pass in their DCT E92 M3. The car features a customized ESS-Tuning VT2-625 supercharger kit on the stock transmission, stock motor, and stock rod bearings. Now, they are claiming they did this on 93 octane. That is VERY had to believe if there is no methanol injection in here. To trap 135 the car is going to need to be making more boost than the standard VT2-625 kit and one will not accomplish that on pump gas. There are definitely question marks here and hopefuly we get answers but the quickest and fastest 1/4 mile mark for the E9X and S65 V8 stands at 10.466 @ 135.13.

    Hey guys, Pure Turbo dropped off their M4 for a little JB4 dyno tuning. The car has a JB4, full exhaust, factory intake system, racing fuel, meth kit running dual CM7 nozzles (overkill with the race gas... but better safe than sorry first time out), and of course the hybrid turbos. It's an MT. There were a few little bugs to work through but the end result exceeded my expectations. I'm pretty impressed with these turbos. Spool is delayed maybe 300-500rpm, similar to RB N54s vs. stock N54s. But damn does it hold more power to redline. There is probably another 30-40whp in them but since it's not our car I didn't want to push it "too" hard. :lol

    j_hynson started a thread Single Turbo Build in N54
    As some of you know i made a bad choice to go with a single turbo kit from a new company in the beginning of 2014 when i purchased my 335. Well that went terribly wrong and as usual I learn the hard way. After all that was straightened out I decided no more corners would be cut on this build when it comes to anything. I have alot of catching up to do with this build thread. Here is the car before i began building it. I had all the basic bolt ons... Charge pipe, meth, Jb4 (then later switched to cobb when i decided i wanted to go to single turbo), 7" FMIC, Fuel-IT stage 2 bucket, back end flash, etc etc. Currently i have the motor, tranny, and rear diff pulled from car. Head: VAC Motorsports getting stage 3. I originally sent it in just to do end of the year port and polish special but that didn't last long. Here are some pictures i received before they smoothed it out by hand. Will upload more when i receive more pictures Manifold: FFTECH's Top Mount Kit Turbo: PT 6766 (the one on the left is the one im using. One on the right is for a srt8 jeep build) Fueling: -Motiv Motorsports fuel solutions kit. (sorry AEM ems 4 not in picture) -Fuel-IT Stage 3 bucket (LPFP) Rear Differential: (Currently Working on) -Mfactory LSD -Defiv Lockdown Kit Intake manifold design im considering -Had drawn up a rough design of an intake manifold for this build and sent the file off to a buddy that does aerospace engineering over in Europe. He sent me back this and said this would be the most efficient manifold design. I do not know if this is his marked up design or if he sourced it from somewhere else but its pretty close to what i sent him. The only thing im debating is...is it really going to make a big enough difference to justify spending money on materials and adding more downtime on my car to build it. Extra pictures i had in my phone: Ill be leaving to a rig on tuesday but am told i will be back on the 22nd. (anyone who works in the oilfield knows thats probably bs) I will update with more pictures as i go.

    So, I guess I can't, or rather don't want, to keep my lips zipped anymore. Like many of you, I made a little purchase a while back and want to share it with you guys. I'm going to just leave this link to the photo album HERE for right now, and I will update the thread by the end of the weekend to embed the photos and more about the Motiv 900 kit. Enjoy! Edit:

    We were pleased to have a returning customer come back and try our TTFS level 1 Race Pack software as we continue to work on our level 2 edition that will allow for custom tuning by late January. Check out the results! He had previously purchased a JB4 through us that was installed in house and came back for more tuning options after installing down pipes and a full exhaust system. The dyno results compares Stock vs. JB4 Map 2 vs. TTFS Race Pack (not custom tuned to keep it comparable). The car remained strapped the entire time and all the runs were performed on 93 octane. All runs were done in All wheel drive mode for a proper on road simulation. All runs include the following bolt on modifications. Eisenmann Turbo Back Exhaust Eisenmann Mid Pipe Eisenmann Downpipe The yellow is Race Pack. The Blue is Stock and the Black Is Jb4. P.S. I am sorry for the bad video quality. Here a few shots of the TTFS Race Pack Box. It will perform like factory at high autobahn speeds. It does not require any splicing and it is much easier to install. It is also water proof avoiding any random hassle of the car not starting near the water. The box may be uninstalled in a few minutes with a jumper loop for quick removal if necessary. TTFS Race Pack Level 1 ( may hold up to 9 Maps) Jb4 that was removed.

    Awesome to see two exotic big boys go at it in a drag race. On paper the Aventador has the power advantage over the McLaren 650S with its 700 horsepower. The Aventador has a naturally aspirated 6.5 liter V12 powerplant compared to the McLaren's turbocharged 3.8 liter V8 unit. The McLaren 650S has 500 lb-ft of torque to the Aventador 508 lb-ft (on paper of course). The thing is the 650S hits its peak torque figures much sooner and has a fatter torque curve thanks to the turbos. This is one of those times where a peak measurement can be misleading. The 650S also is lighter than the Aventador by roughly 850 pounds. That is a huge difference and also keep in mind the McLaren is rear wheel drive to the Aventador all wheel drive. So what happens? The 650S gets a jump but it doesn't matter. It pulls away and covers the runway in 23.01 seconds compared to the Aventador 23.84. That is a significant difference and the 650S Spider was the quickest out of all the cars AutoWeek tested with the Aventador coming up behind it. The 650S power to weight and efficiency are just too much for even the Aventador to overcome.

    When i installed the jb4, i did a 25% e85 mix and the car ran great. After installing a new intake and charge pipe i tried 50%. Then car ran like crap. Kicked me to map 4, engine malfunction warning. Car drives great in normal driving, but horrible under WOT. So i figured too much e85. Drove car around and got fuel level down to almost a half tank and filled up with 93. Which shouldve put me back around 25% e85. Previously i was hitting 17psi. Now i can only get 12-14 out of it. Ive reset the map and moved the FOL down. Still wont make 17psi and acts funny under WOT. I can do the back end flash tomorrow but if it sounds like something else im all ears. What would make the car drop my boost level on map 5? Also a/f looks leaner than it was. Fuel trims maxing out so pulling boost?

    I have a Procede Rev 3 running 4-29 and it runs great, however I want to use some of the V5 options. Now i'm not genius, but to me its just a flash upgrade, but when I do that and reset the options in the Command Center, the car runs rough and flashes SES light 7 times at me. What am I doing wrong? an I going to just have to live with V4 and not be able to load V5? Any help is appreciated. 2007 335i e93 Vishnu Procede Rev3 (v4 currently)

    Great race video showing a bolt on Gen IV Viper with a tune and full exhaust putting out 583 rear wheel horsepower running everything in sight. This is a well done and crystal clear video showing the mods for each opponent and their approximate power level. Take notes people. Run 1 Heads/Cam A6 C7 Stingray 540 whp This one is over before it starts. The C7 likely was in the wrong gear or at least we hope he was in the wrong gear as the Vette gets destroyed. Run 2 stock GSXR-600: This race starts off well and then the Viper appears to let off. Missed shift maybe? Run 3 Paxton Supercharged Gen III Viper 798 whp: This one is rather hard to explain as it is neck and neck. The Gen III starts to pull but the bolt on Viper keeps pace. The Gen III sure does not look like it is pacing 798 wheel horsepower although with a blower it easily should be. Run 4 Shelby GT500 with Kenne Bell 2.8 liter 718 whp: Botched run although the Viper jumps out ahead. Run 5 stock C7 Z06 7-speed: That poor Z06. Run 6 C7 Z06 rematch: Same result. The Z06 gets creamed. Run 7 and 8 threeway Viper, Z06, and GT500 The Viper again starts to pull away and the Z06 is left in the dust by everyone. The GT500 misses a gear and the Viper wins another one. They line up for another run with the Viper again pulling away. It's starting to look like only the Viper owner can drive. Run 9 Shelby GT500 rematch: Much closer this time although there is noticeable wheelspin. The Viper still manages to edge up top. That is one impressive Gen IV and the guy who owns sure can drive it. He ran everyone and basically beat everyone. A well done video as well, great stuff.

    Developments in the BMW F-Series flash tuning scene are proceeding faster than expected. Earlier this month BimmerBoost brought you the story that BMW F-Series Infineon tri-core ECU's had been cracked and the various cracks have spread like wildfire to tuners throughout the globe. Jailbreak Tuning posted flash tune results on 91 octane for the F10 M5 S63TU V8 and the numbers are very encouraging even at this early stage. Peak power went up from the 539 wheel horsepower baseline (with aftermarket downpipes) to 617 wheel horsepower for a gain of 78 horsepower at the wheels. The tune deletes the CEL (check engine light) caused by the downpipes. The torque figure rises from 507 lb-ft at the wheels to 567 lb-ft at the wheels. Torque gains are seen throughout the entire curve once the turbos spool. F10 M5 tuning and S63TU V8 tuning is ready to take the next step forward. 2015 is going to be very interesting for BMW aftermarket performance.

    Expect to see more flash tune results for the F80/F82 M3 and M4 in the coming months. BrenTuning bench flashed this F82 M4 S55 and showed some impressive flash tune gains. The flash tune only numbers show a gain of 38 horsepower at the wheels and 22 lb-ft of torque at the wheels over the baseline. Keep in mind the baseline figures are 385 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque at the wheels on a Mustang dyno. This dyno is much more conservative than its Dynojet peer. BrenTuning ran into some TMAP issues and this will be a limiting area for flash tuned S55's at least initially. To realize numbers on par with the piggyback tuning options while retaining the benefits of a flash tune BrenTuning added a piggyback tune into the mix. The result? A gain of 65 horsepower and 63 lb-ft of torque at the wheels for a total of 450 horsepower and 411 lb-ft of torque. Very solid gains with an early 'Stage 0' tune and piggyback working together. As we have seen with other turbo BMW motors things evolve considerably in the tuning department over time. It will be no different here but we likely will see flash tuning and piggyback tuning working in conjunction to offer the best of both worlds.
