    I ordered a black 2011+ model turbosmart race port blow off valve in black. It cost me $272 shipped. Im not going to be using it. My loss is your gain. It will fit any tial q bov flange, mounted on a chargepipe already or not. 100% brand new and never used. $240 picked up or shipped obo. For more info on this bov, heres a link: http://www.bmwgarage.com.au/index.ph...vs-turbosmart/ I have all 4: left front #22-135032 ($112), right front #22-135049 ($112), and two rear #19-135052 ($63 each). These are specifically for sport package equipped cars, and are valved 10% firmer than OE 335i sport struts/shocks. Total for all of them as a set comes to $350.00 new from tirerack. I originally ordered them from tirerack but never ended up using them, so the condition of these are 100% brand new. Looking to get $300.00 obo for them picked up, or i will ship. I also have both front and rear full set of stoptech stainless steel brake lines for E9X 335i brand new in packaging. they were $140.00 shipped from r1concepts, but ill take $120 shipped obo for them.

    More great runs from our friends in Russia here. We have a Porsche 991 Turbo with the PP-Performance RS650 tuning package going up against a stock Lamborghini Aventador and a Weistec supercharged W204 generation C63 AMG Black Series. The PP-P tune for the 991 Turbo and S from what we understand is piggyback based. The 991 Turbo and S both have the same sized turbochargers. A PP-P tuned 991 Turbo S went as quick and fast 9.896 @ 137.78 when trying to oneup Simon Motorsport on the recently discredited Yas Marina drag strip. Well, these runs are not on the Yas Marina dragstrip but done by the Russians known for Moscow Unlimited. The first run has the PP-P tuned Turbo go up against the Lamborghini Aventador and the Porsche wins. No surprise here at all considering how a stock 991 Turbo S did against a stock Aventador. The 991 Turbo gets through the 1/4 mile quicker and faster with a 10.359 @ 132.085 compared to the Aventador 11.059 @ 129.525. It is also faster through the kilometer as the Turbo pulls 169.846 miles per hour to the Aventador's 169.206. The Aventador closes the gap as speeds rise. The second run has the Turbo go at it with a Weistec supercharged W204 C63 AMG Black Series said to be at 700 horsepower so we assume a 2.3 liter blower package. The Black Series is set up for the track and not kilometer drag racing so the owner wisely removes the rear wing which creates downforce at the expense of aerodynamic drag. The 991 Turbo wins covering the quarter mile in 10.650 @ 131.389 compared to the C63 AMG 11.644 @ 127.456. The kilometer numbers are 19.401 @ 169.976 for the 991 Turbo compared to 20.669 @ 166.434 for the supercharged C63 Black Series. It certainly is interesting that the PP-Performance tuned 991 Turbo numbers in the Russian air do not approach what PP-P shows in the hot desert air of Yas Marina in the UAE. You will have to explain that inconsistency yourself.

    I honestly have no idea. Those decisions are about ten miles over my head, and are made at Park Ave. It's probably the same reason they refuse to put cameras on the goal posts; just plain stubbornness and arrogance over the product's quality. In so many ways the NFL is a really well run organization. But when it comes to innovation and product development, they seem content with the product that is on the field. IDK, it's a good question.

    Oh no moves of note - the actual wire is still done via fax and reports everything that hits the NFLPAs' books - player acquisitions, releases, contractual changes, suspensions, appeals, etc. So quite literally when news hits it is automatically printed at a bunch of folks desks/work areas. The degree to which the NFL does not embrace technology is truly and utterly shameful. Fax machines.... What's his face just got suspended as well....Datone Jones. Player's "Summer Vacation" started about 10 days ago for most teams and already people are doing dumb shit. It's astounding. I shouldn't be surprised but I am.

    I think you will see a minimal difference in efficiency. They're probably a lot closer than anyone would care to admit but if I had to choose I'd say the wet clutch DCT is more efficient due to not having a torque converter. But the 8L90 is really starting to blur the line with its multi-clutch setup that is basically just like a DCT. In this comparison I think there is something majorly off so I can't say. What I can say is the automatic ATS-V will no doubt be faster and quicker than the manual ATS-V.

    More and more flash tunes continue to come out for the S63TU engine platform which is used in the BMW F10 M5 and F13 M6. BrenTuning's approach is not just one of an ECU (engine control unit) tune but also addresses the DCT transmission with TCU (transmission control unit) adjustments. The TCU settings are modified to give full torque delivery and lock up on peak boost. BMW likely tunes the transmission the way they do from the factory to protect it for longevity as they do not exactly replace the clutch discs but say they are 'lifetime' units which is really just a cost cutting and warranty measure. That said, by modifying the torque delivery profile one can improve the performance even without increasing boost pressure by unleashing what is already there. Do not expect lifetime clutch life though. As far as the power and torque gains from the ECU tuning BrenTuning on 93 octane pump gas managed to gain on a Mustang Dyno an additional 31 horsepower and 106 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. This is tune only with the only difference from stock being a Magnaflow rear section which does not do much for power output. The gains are seen down low with a massive increase in torque that starts to taper toward redline explaining why the peak torque gain is so much larger than the peak horsepower gain. This is not a motor designed for big top end power but sees massive gains down low in torque. This tune should provide a massive kick in the pants you can feel. As far as pricing, BrenTuning is asking a very reasonable $995. For now it seems they are flashing only in house but mobile flash kits are supposed to come soon. Great stuff as usual from BrenTuning.

    Thats fine, so we are in agreement that shifts times in this comparison have not given any advantage even slight to the ats-v in terms of traps speeds or 0-150mph time. I understand the efficiencies between clutches in the tranny. Does the fact that the 8l90 uses a torque converter to get final power to the ground lose power to the wheels vs the Germans here?

    I don't know if you read the technical details. The mode of operation between the two transmissions is practically identical. The main difference is really the torque converter. That said, a wet clutch dual clutch setup will not be as efficient as a manual although a dry clutch will. The GM transmission is highly efficient for an automatic and will only be slightly off the dual clutch is anything. The main reason they chose that transmission style was it fit the profile better for the Corvette's cylinder deactivation system. There probably is something involved with the cost as well. Regardless, the 8L90 is one of the best autos on the market if not the best. Not as good as a dual clutch but damn close.

    You raise a good point. Does it shift faster than the pdk or Dct. It may or may not, my experience with gm is that they overrate their products, whereas the Germans underrate (there are exceptions to this). Nevertheless, granted the ats-v does shift fast enough to make it wash with the other 2 trannies here, the fact that it is using a power-sapping torque-converter to apply power should only handicap it when making power to the ground vs the Germans, further emphasizing the theory that the ats-v motor is making even more power than its ratings....

    That's fine but you aren't understand why I don't have the same respect for BMW that I used to. If you don't see the cost cutting and dilution of the M brand you simply aren't paying attention to what is going on. I specifically chose it due to the potential such a curve has with boost. Why are the Gallardos making such huge power? Is it because they are threatened by M156 engines? Or is it because when you take a high revving motor with a flat curve and boost it things only get that much better? The S85 with boost is capable of far more than the S63TU. It's not even a contest really. I simply understand horsepower x torque / 5252 You seem to think horsepower equals the better car somehow. If the GT500 has the GT350 motor with turbos, ok, now we're talking. But if it's the same design then the GT350 actually has the better motor architecture and is the better driver's car regardless. It's not just about peak horsepower. Yeah, the 5.2 liter GT350 V8 with its peak torque available from a spread of 2500 rpm to 5000 or whatever is clearly is going to struggle passing Jettas. Just like the M5 did, right? And I remember all those times in my M3 where I struggled to pass Jettas. I don't just blindly accept cars at face value. If you're ignoring the 991 Turbo performance inconsistency then you are just paying lip service to being an enthusiast. It's great we have a power war going on. It is not great that many manufacturers are providing a ton of power yet making the ecu's pull timing to spare any possible engine related problems that would lead to warranty repairs. The cars are becoming only good for short blasts and that is it. This is something the high revving NA era did not have a problem with. I mean, are you really thrilled about GM recommending aftermarket tunes on the Z06 to help them out with their heat soak and engine timing issues? The top track car in the world is arguably the Viper at the moment. No direct injection. No high revs. No turbos. How about that? That's fine. I wouldn't just create some absolute like that which could potentially hold me back from a gem like the GT350.
