    The N54 3.0 liter turbocharged inline-6 is a strong BMW motor that takes boost (and abuse) well. That does not mean it is indestructible as nothing is. BimmerBoost member @Xearom3 unfortunately put a hole in his block but he shared what, how, and when it happened. Most people tend to sweep these things under the rug as if it is some sort of embarrassment or it reflects badly on them. Usually it is tuners as often something they did is responsible for the failure. This one appears to be old fashioned detonation and bad luck with the ECU not being able to spare the motor in time. So, he put a hole in the block but is taking it in stride sharing the details and he has a spare motor to build which will be able to take much more abuse. Hey, shit happens when pushing motors and running them hard at power/torque levels they were not designed for. Respect from BimmerBoost to @Xearom3 for sharing these photos and details: So I figured I would share my experience with the community. Was out making a couple of pulls @ 25/26psi on my PTE 6466 twin scroll setup when cylinder 1 decided to give up on me. Not surprised a stock engine let go at mid to upper 600's, but I am impressed how long it hung in there. Put up a hell of a fight! Pics at the very bottom of my spare engine that apparently is now gonna get built. Log is from earlier in the evening: Also happened to have my GoPro watching the cluster:

    Boost on gas gauge, meth flow on oil temp. Logs that I ran earlier that day all showed high 10's low 11's on AFR. EDIT: Here is the last log I made before the engine failed. This was taken about 18 hours before, no tuning changes were made in between. http://datazap.me/u/xearom3/6466-custom-single-4-23-15?log=0&data=1-3-4-5-9-16-18-24

    This isn't normal, these things take upper 600's all day long. This was detonation plain and simple. If you have AFR on oil in the cluster its dead lean, but the car should have been able to protect it self. Sorry to see it let go on you! Hopefully you get it back up and running soon!

    JJ Watt is the man. He's a truly once in a generation athlete and can actually win you games defensively. A lot of fun to watch, and apparently genuinely a good dude. Not sure a lot of athletes would have taken the time to do something like that.

    Sorry to see this. People need to stop fueling with meth. 30-50whp on hybrids is ok but that's where it needs to stop.

    Enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the Shelby GT350 and GT350R Mustang models but there are not going to be enough of them to go around. If you desperately want one and don't have one on order you better be prepared to pay an absurd markup as Ford intends to honor Carroll Shelby by keeping the 2015 model exclusive. A fitting tribute no doubt to the 50th Anniversary of the GT350 nameplate. The models for 2015 will also have a special VIN denoting their exclusivity. For the 2015 production cycle there will only be 100 GT350 units and 37 GT350R units. Now, whether Ford intends to keep the GT350 so incredibly limited is anyone's guess. They do hint at things changing for the 2016 production year. That means if you really want one it is best to wait for the fever to calm down and not fight for a 2015 model. It is unlikely Ford will continue the limited run every year but is instead building hype and of course honoring the legend that is the Shelby GT350. Enthusiasts will no doubt respect Ford's decision to honor Carroll Shelby and the GT350 in this manner. FORD ANNOUNCES LIMITED RUN FOR 2015 SHELBY GT350; ONLY 37 GT350R MODELS TO BE BUILT Ford to produce limited run of 2015 Shelby® GT350 to commemorate the nameplate's 50th anniversary 2015 Shelby GT350 comes with a unique 2015 VIN – the envy of Shelby enthusiasts everywhere Limited run of 37 Shelby GT350R models to be built in homage to original GT350 competition model of 1965 In recognition of the 50th anniversary of the Shelby GT350, Ford will build a limited run of Shelby GT350 and GT350R Mustangs for 2015. The original Shelby GT350, introduced in 1965, established Mustang's performance credentials on racetracks around the world. The all-new Shelby GT350, featuring the most powerful naturally aspirated Ford production engine ever, re-establishes Mustang as a world-class sports car. Only 100 Shelby GT350 models will feature a 2015 model year designation before production switches over to 2016. Of these, 50 will be equipped with the Technology Package and 50 equipped with the Track Package. "Fans of the Shelby brand are among the most passionate in the automotive industry," said Henry Ford III, Ford Performance marketing manager. "To honor the passion of our fans for Shelby GT350's 50th anniversary, a limited run of GT350 models will be built in 2015; these cars will be highly coveted by both Mustang and Shelby enthusiasts alike." 2015 Shelby GT350R: Celebrating 50 years of a pony car legend In 1965, Carroll Shelby developed and sold an FIA-homologated Mustang called the Shelby GT350 competition model. This race-ready Mustang took to tracks around the world, competing in the most prestigious races and against the stiffest competition there was. In addition to winning the Sports Car Club of America's B Production national championship in 1965, 1966 and 1967, the car entered races throughout South America and Europe, including the 1967 24 Hours of Le Mans. There is heated debate among Shelby enthusiasts over how many 1965 GT350 competition models were built during the extremely limited production run. While Carroll Shelby insisted two prototype cars and 35 production models were built, most records show only 34 production models received serial numbers from the Shelby production facility. For 2015, Ford will make sure there is no confusion about the number of GT350R models constructed; 37 cars will be built in Carroll Shelby's memory.

    My DCT hold 580whp ( 650hp ) without any problem on stock clutch. It can hold more power with upgraded clutch like Dodson or SSP. Not need to upgrade ECU, just need additional oil cooling.
