    I gotta admit it looks a hell of a lot better. The original F20 just looked... off.

    Can you show any information, and actual facts of any HPFP's failing since they went back, redesigned them, and gave them away for free to fix the issues? We look forward to your data on that. That you choose to ignore, the set it up, and forget elegance of the system, is your choice, but saying PI only has positives, and DI only negatives is completely incorrect. You guys have fun with this one. Signing off

    Please show me one post where I have responded to him, while blocked. I respond to the people who are getting drug into the mud by his immaturity. I have no idea what he writes, so how could I respond to it, I can only guess it is the usual misinformation, and garbage he is known for. Why he is even in this thread unless it is just to troll, again is a mystery as he has no business here. That is the real question. I now have to unsubscribe from another thread because it has become a waste of time. It is a common theme since they have become vendors here. It would seem the simple solution would be for them to ignore us and focus on their own products, but obviously they cannot do that, for whatever reason.

    Sticky replied to a thread New S65 Record? 785whp in S65
    It's a loaded question. But, um, since I do know a bit about these I'll share. The S65 is a 12.0:1 engine. It's built for naturally aspirated power and revs to 8400 stock. You put a centrifugal blower on it (the EASIEST forced induction setup to tune for and cheapest) and you make some nice power. On stock internals you can do about 600 whp without pushing it. Now, I built my motor years ago and more people are building their s65's. It isn't cheap. It isn't something you do in your garage. The bore spacing is very tight. You will notice people talk about strokers but not any big bore setups because BMW left very little material between the cylinders to keep it compact and light for racing. That is a problem beyond just the compression if you want to go big. You need some solid sleeves and a way to reinforce the block. So, my motor got some significant work. Even @Torgus the masterful genius who turns his own wrenches can't do this work as shocking as it is. If you go past 700 whp you will need this work. Just ask a few guys who have tried to hit these numbers without it ;) Anyway, ESS kits are V3si based. It's a small blower. You can max it on the stock internals. They choose this blower because it is self-contained with the oil and cheap. They act like this is great for maintenance but do you really want oil you can't change in your blower if pushing it? Especially if spinning it hard and heating it beyond what it does on the stock internals? You can probably hit 700 whp reliably with that blower on a low compression setup before you have to overspin it. Maybe 15 psi or so. Beyond that... well. I ran a Vortech YSI. Much bigger blower but it also takes much more work to fit in. But, it is capable of over 1000 whp. Here, this should help you understand things: V-3 Si Supercharger Std 52000 RPM 22 PSI 1150 CFM 775 HP 78% 3.5" 2.75" V-7 YSi Supercharger HD 65000 RPM 30 PSI 1600 CFM 1200 HP 78% 4" 3" So I mean this is night and day like I'm trying to explain to people but people are stupid and just see some peak figure and all it a day. You can hit about 1000 with the YSI. But you better have a well built motor, upgraded head studs, a hell of a fuel system, etc. It's a lot more involved than just cranking up boost on a basic ESS kit with some low compression pistons. The real answer for big power you guys will see soon.

    gull123 started a thread E82/E88: Ethanol problem with jb4 in 1 Series and 1M
    I'm running 60/40 Fuel 93 and Ethanol.I have a 450 Walboro on my car plus car is flashed too.For some reason at high RPM car just cuts off power ,car does not switch back map 4. I wonder if I should put twin 450 Walboro to solved fuel starvation on high rpm? If I run like 80/20 no problem with car.

    Sticky replied to a thread New S65 Record? 785whp in S65
    Torgus is still butthut I made him look like an idiot for the 2909379239292x time so he comes into the S65 section trying to talk smack. Dude doesn't have an S65. He doesn't know anything about them. He wants to talk about turning his own wrenches as if anyone with a freaking Switzer, ETS, or AMS GTR is turning their own wrenches and building their own transmissions. His point doesn't even apply as he isn't capable of doing anything of those things. I'm not talking about my setup right now because what's the point? You will just have a 1081038043 page thread of nonsense where some of the bitter little girls complain about how long or how much money or this or that or who knows what else. Maybe it would all go faster with Torgus turning the wrenches. All I know is they keep coming here and this forum keeps getting bigger. Laughing all the way to the bank man. You will be the first one to know when I'm ready to run. No dynos, no threads, no bullshit, just settling it heads up one by one. I have no problem with that.

    I laugh at how much time you spend browsing here considering how much you claim to not like it. It's ok if you're a hypocrite. We all know how good this side of town is. That's why you come here cupcake.

    Sticky replied to a thread New S65 Record? 785whp in S65
    What I find funny is you can't read a dynograph. I never lost any record. Your knowledge of these cars is piss poor. Now you're a Gintani business expert too. Call them up and tell them how you think they should run their business. What I do know is my car is my property and I will display whatever I want to. It's not their shop car. They have their own shop cars. I should have had Torgus the know it all who can't grasp the basics of what a dual clutch transmission is turn the wrenches. LOLOL if you only knew how funny this is. Oh, there are secrets here my friend. You're so isolated from any relevant knowledge on any of these topics that you just sit there spouting off like the typical forum clown. Well what we do know if you're neither of those things. You hold no records, haven't pushed a platform, and are not an S65 owner. So let the people who actually have these things talk about them. You keep reading.

    Great post. But there is nothing wrong with not being 100% transparent when it comes to the protecting proprietary concepts. If it is regarding a manufacturers claim on products being actively marketed and sold however it does behoove them to give more info to "prove it". In some cases, 3rd party results are the preferred methods to do as such. In other cases, pictures or other evidence is helpful to sort out the facts vs. fiction. Most often we are an open book and don't care who you are, competitor or not ask away, we will give the answer to the best of our ability. Rob
