    I know it is someone else's video. But you are comparing a full competition racecar to a modern street car. It is a fun comparison, but on a track where the racecar lives the streetcar will most likely lose, even to a 30 year old racecar. Not at all the same engine. Same bottom, yes Changes to the engine: gearbox, diff, gearbox & diff cooling, entirely different engine internals, large oil pan or dry sump, airbox & alpha N piggy back, later ECU4 and dual spark packs, 8 injectors, slide throttles, different radiator, different exhaust system Don't worry, I understood you. I just didn't understand your reasoning and how you got to that conclusion. BMW M's are still competing in lots of races. Look at the 24Hours of Spa Franchorchamps, where the Z4 GT3 lost by 7 seconds only to the Audi R8 LMS. Dunno. The list of changes to make them into rule compliant racecars on both cars is pretty long. DTM rules have changed a lot since 1990. The cars comply to these new rules. Duh? Race result 24H Spa Franchorchamps: 1 Rast/Vanthoor/Winkelhock (Audi R8 LMS ultra) 527 laps 2 Luhr/Werner/Palttala (BMW Z4) + 7.077s 3 Mies/Nash/Stippler (Audi R8 LMS ultra) – 1 lap 4 Guilvert/Ortelli/Sandström (Audi R8 LMS ultra) – 2 laps 5 Buhk/Götz/Jaafar (Mercedes SLS AMG) – 4 laps 6 Hommerson/Machiels/Bertolini/Cioci (Ferrari 458) – 7 laps 7 Smith/McCaig/Bryant/Sims (BMW Z4) – 7 laps 8 Wyatt/Rugolo/Lowndes/Piccini (Ferrari 458) – 8 laps 9 Schneider/Primat/Verdonck (Mercedes SLS AMG) – 9 laps 10 Abra/Osborne/Poole/Turner (Aston Martin Vantage) – 10 laps They are right there in between the other racecars... BMW also drives in the United Sportscar Championship, and other endurance championships I know it is just a comparison. Don't worry, I haven't been butthurt over anything on the Internet for many years. Maybe the reason why you are triggering all these reactions is because you (and Sport Auto) are comparing apples and oranges here.

    Man, that is pretty crazy how identical that is. I would think my turbo would spool a tad slower given the difference in sizing. 58vs64mm inducer is pretty big difference and should definitely have noticeable difference in spool. I will say, I am just as surprised as you guys are. This kit has definitely exceeded my expectations in every way, I am very satisfied and happy with these results. Yea, I went to shift sector too in April about 10 days after I got the kit. Drove it there, ran it on the track on a pretty hot day, drove back. Full car of 4 people with full trunk, very comfortable ride and sleeper mode. 200 miles each way pretty much... Yea, you'd be surprised to what our fabricator actually works on lol. 2000whp hot rods, with huge engines and fat turbos that make my one look like a potato. Custom drag cars, motor swap TT V8 in Rx7 and the FRS/BRZ etc. He works for a lot of different companies etc. He's a very knowledgeable guy, sometimes I honestly have a hard time keeping up with him.

    yeah! you'd think the FFTEC manifold would annihilate this one with the pedigree... and sure, the turbo doesn't have to be THAT well built to be better built than a PTE, but it's a fair bit larger than a 58xx? so.. i'm going to guess a combination of both things?

    Yes, lifetime transferable warranty; even if raced :) For the clutch, we would make it to the specification/power requirements required by the majority. So if this means 500lb+, that is fine. For the arms, let me check with my engineer. I was ready to reply to this, but the post right below yours answers it :) We want to keep our 300M axles below $1k, yes :)

    True but at the end of the day....LS.....Pick your budget and whatever WHP number you desire. Meanwhile we're still in "where the hell is the fuel going to come from" land in N54 world. Enjoy your Vette dude

    Got an 01 vette, which will be a mildly modded for the track. First had to get it in semi-acceptable condition and now concentrating on the suspension and cooling. Kinda itching to get to the tuning soon, even stock cars have a tough time in AZ heat. For engine mods I'll do e40-ish and headers to start and later I wanna do high CR e85... but may just SC for simplicity. If I really get into tracking can't go too crazy with HP though. Have a few directions I may take. I do miss the n54... could beat anyone that wanted to play. Need to have semi-extensive mods in the least to play in a vette... I'm slow.

    Hehe, you guys are going to hit the roof when you find out how simple and easy it is what I do. You doing almost exactly as I do it but you put too much emphasis into it....lol The way myates does it can throw off your momentum. You only need to "rev once". I use this same method on MT cars when launching to be easy on the clutch.

    It seems like the encryption key was leaked. Now add claims of Eurocharged having cracked the ECU and will have a flash tune. I wonder what Dinan will now do with their new piggybacks?

    I have had this exhaust on my car (daily driver) for about 2 years now and I think its time for a change. The last 3 months or so I have had it with catless headers, and I gave up the fight on trying to keep the tips clean. There are no dings or scratches, the muffler is in perfect shape, just needs a good cleaning. I would like to get $850. I would prefer local pickup (Louisville, KY), but would consider shipping. If interested call or text me 678-612-2551 for the quickest response. sound clip with catless headers https://vimeo.com/97174724
