    Now this is a hell of an achievement. To put it into perspective this is power equal to a built motor ESS VT3 supercharger setup except achieved on a stock internal S65 V8 and with far more torque. Quite simply, turbos are far better for the S65 V8 platform than centrifugal blowers. Why? Greater efficiency and less stress. Rather than manually spinning an impeller and increasing stress on the front of the motor the exhaust gasses are doing the work but you already knew turbos were more efficient. In the S65 V8 application you get the benefit of being able to push harder in the power and torque department on the stock internals. 708 wheel horsepower and 495 lb-ft of torque at the wheels are stock internal S65 V8 records: No doubt 100% E85 fuel helps here as well. The fuel system is upgraded for this of course. What turbos and how much boost? A pair of GT3076's at 11 psi of boost. These turbos obviously can be pushed much harder but the question would be how much further before the engine let's go? Who wants to find out? Just look at the curve. It's a thing of beauty. Yes, it is purposely tuned to not have a huge torque hit down low (they considered other turbochargers for this application) and offer nice and flat torque delivery once spooled until redline. Just imagine what a built motor curve with double the boost pressure will look like. This is also tuned on the stock DME as well which is truly remarkable and shows considerable skill and experience with the factory ECU. The S65 V8 turbo era is officially here.

    There is no stopping the Viper ACR. It is a track animal bent on destroying whatever dares come across its path. The M4 GTS? The Shelby GT350R? The Porsche 911 Carrera S? The new Acura NSX? The McLaren 570S? All simply lambs led to the slaughter. Emphasis on slaughter. Just look at what the Viper ACR did around Laguna Seca in the hands on Randy Pobst: 1. Dodge Viper ACR - 1:31.58 2. Audi R8 V10 Plus - 1:34.23 3. McLaren 570S - 1:34.58 4. Mercedes-AMG GT S - 1:35.30 5. Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R - 1:36.11 6. Acura NSX - 1:36.36 7. Porsche 911 Carrera S - 1:36.44 8. Nissan GT-R - 1:37.08 9. BMW M4 GTS - 1:37.66 10. Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE - 1:37.78 11. Jaguar F-Type SVR - 1:38.75 12. Aston Martin V12 Vantage S - 1:41.77 It is almost a full three seconds faster than the next car up which is the Audi R8 V10 Plus. That is a beatdown. The Viper ACR is just on another level and it's amazing this car does not get more respect. Now, it is interesting to contrast MotorTrend's results at Laguna Seca to Car and Driver's results at VIR (Virginia International Raceway). The R8 V10 showed very weakly in Car and Driver's hands yet it is the second quickest car here with Randy Pobst at the wheel. When we say Car and Driver's hands we mean their staff who simply is not on Randy's level when it comes to driving prowess. Car and Driver's Lightning Lap is a good comparison but it is not as scientific as MotorTrend's (which also isn't perfect) due to taking place on multiple days with multiple drivers. MotorTrend uses Pobst at Laguna Seca with the cars running on the same day. That is a big difference. As is the fact VIR rewards power in the lap time more than the shorter and tighter Laguna Seca. What do we learn? That the M4 GTS get its ass handed to it by the Mustang GT350R yet again. It loses at VIR, it loses at Laguna Seca, and it is simply safe to say the GT350R is the superior track performer anywhere. Yes, at a fraction of the price. When you bring the M4 GTS asking price into the argument the car looks like a joke. Is its laptime respectable? Sure, if beating a Camaro SS that comes in at less than 1/3 of the money by a tenth of a second is respectable. The AMG GT S is cheaper, the 911 Carrera S is cheaper, the Nissan GT-R is cheaper, the Mustang GT350R is cheaper, and the Viper ACR is cheaper. What do they all have in common? They are all better performance cars than the M4 GTS. The Mercedes-AMG GT S deserves honorable mention beating the stout GT350R as well as the incredible new Porsche 911 Carrera S. Considering the GT S is not even anywhere near as hardcore as the GT model line gets, that is impressive. Enjoy the videos of the laps below with impressions from Pobst. The winner of the competition will be announced shortly. If we were to guess, the Carrera S is the favorite.

    How does almost 800 wheel horsepower sound from a 6 speed manual N54 with VTT GC turbos? Pretty nice, right? VTT hit 765 whp at 29.3 psi of boost but of course you can run less boost pressure. 28.5 psi resulted in 740, 25.4 psi in 693, and 22.8 in 655 to the wheels.

    It's been quite a while since the E92 M3 was discussed. Where we last left off the vehicle was making more power and torque than any E9X M3 in the world and setting records. As a quick refresher, the car featured a built 10.0:1 compression motor with a sleeved S65 V8 block and a Vortech YSI blower. Yes, this build has taken years. Through the missteps, mocking, long nights, fabrication, tuning, and records set the S65 engine platform was pushed very far forward despite how uncooperative it is. Let's not forget this car made more torque than anyone else has up to today: And it also set the E9X 1/2 mile record with a 173.07 pass. This angered a lot of people in the community and let's just be honest ESS-Tuning in particular. ESS with their 'record setting' VT3 car at the same event as the M3 could not even get close to its trap speed. At a subsequent event where the M3 did not run ESS and the VT3 owner cheated by backing up as far as possible to get a running start to inflate the trap speed. It took them several manipulated tries like this but finally they eked out a trap speed a mile per hour higher. Yes, they cheated, because that's what it is and that is how these people are. They actually take pride in posting contrived records. This is all being mentioned to show you just how hard the car was pushed and what took place. The stock trans slipped as you can see in the dyno with the Vortech YSI at 18.5 psi of boost. If it held, just do the math. Even with 'only' 554 lb-ft of torque at the wheels well before the torque peak this is still the torque record today on the S65 platform. Do the math for the redline: 8400 rpm x 554 lb-ft / 5252 = 886 wheel horsepower. A conservative 886 mind you as the torque is still rising as the YSI really hit its sweet spot toward redline. It's a real shame we never saw a clean Dynojet run but the fact is nobody else was within 150+ whp of this car. Unfortunately, Dodson at the time did not have the DCT transmission upgrades available it does now and Kris Gagnon at SSP (South Side Performance) screwed this project over delaying it by over a year with his inability to deliver a working product and misleading me while utilizing my transmission as a model to get discs made overseas he could sell and now does sell. Showing this person's true colors will come in another article at a later date. So what happened? We pushed too hard on a platform BMW cut costs on. The fact of the matter is the S65 V8 is a weak design for boost unless tremendously reinforced. BMW loves to tout how light the motor is and how it is lighter than the iron block S54 it replaces despite offering more displacement and being a V8 but the S54 block is not only stronger it is built better. The S65 aluminum-silicon makeup while being light is very weak. Combine this with tight bore spacing, little to no material to work with, and a poor oiling system resulting from cost cutting going from the S85 V10 oiling system to the S65 V8 and you get a cheap, mass produced motor. The goal is quite simply to build it as cheaply as possible while still making it past the warranty period. Ask E9X M3 guys who did not get their bearings replaced and now are paying the price how they feel about BMW engine quality. It's amazing BMW gets away with this. While many things in this motor were upgraded and it handled more than anyone had ever thrown at the S65 we simply went too far because the goal was not to manipulate circumstances to set some bogus records that idiots on forums slurp up but to raise the performance envelope to unforeseen levels. No, it was not a tuning issue. Look at the pictures of motor below. The pistons look practically brand new. The problem was that the main bearings spun: Why? Tons of stress. A Vortech YSI is a monster blower that requires a ton of power to spin. This was not a build with a new crank as the displacement was kept the same. Increasing the boost only exacerbates problems. Things could have been done slightly differently to get it to work but you're always going to be putting more stress on the motor with something like a YSI at high boost than a V3si with low boost. Just the pulley setup alone is completely different and further off the front of the motor which doesn't help reduce various stresses. The other issue is the block flexing. My engine was built quite strong but in order to install sleeves you have to remove material. The idea is the sleeves add material and while the cylinders may be stronger the block as a whole becomes compromised due to how fragile it is to begin with. The block will not be sleeved this time around. Instead, Gintani advocates using a bedplate/brace. AMS does something similar with their GTR builds: AMS uses a billet aluminum piece but Gintani will be using a chromoly piece to brace the block: This should mitigate flex but additionally by switching to turbos stress on the motor is reduced as a whole. It will be possible to make more power at less boost without needing to manually turn a blower. A huge difference in efficiency alone with increased reliability. Furthermore, the factory crank will not be utilized. A new custom forged stroker crank will also take much more abuse than the factory piece: You will notice the stroke is 76.5mm which is a minimal increase over the factory 75.2mm stroke. This is not about displacement gains but simply increased strength and rod to stroke ratio. Technically, yes, it is a stroker build but you will notice those who went big on a stroke increase in the past and tried to add boost ended up with blown motors. That happened for a reason. What else does this build entail? - Mahle pistons - Ferrea intake and exhaust valves - Forged rods - WPC main bearings - BE rod bearings - Two turbos (specs will be provided later) - Welded and machined heads - Dodson build DCT trans - Water/meth - Upgraded fuel system - Carbon driveshaft - Upgraded oiling system - E85 tuning - Gaskets, fluids, etc. When we get to the tuning portion further details will be posted at that time. For now, stock DME tuning is looking likely but the Syvecs S65 standalone may be incorporated. To those who have supported this project and understand the work involved to push a BMW to these levels and that everything does not always go as planned, thank you. To those who have not I'd like to point out not only is bigger than ever before but things will only continue to get better from here on out.

    The N55 motor is coming into its own. After years of hiding in the N54's shadow the BMW N55 3.0 liter I6 turbo motor is earning respect. Just look at what Enzo Performance with their single turbo kit using a Garrett GT3586 turbocharger is getting out of the motor. 632 horsepower and 525 lb-ft of torque at the wheels: Yes, that is with port fuel injection. Keep in mind this is hardly the end of the line as they are achieving these numbers on 25 psi of boost. Further details below. Sorry for the delay. Just gathering all the bits and pieces of the kit we need to get these rolling out. For starters we have been getting a lot calls regarding how our kit compares to other "bolt-on" stock replacement turbochargers. The very simple response is it doesn't, in anyway. 1. For starters our package removes/disables the electronic waste-gate(EWG), factory Diverter Valve and MAF sensor. Our unique ECU Calibration allows for a CEL Free operation, no drive-train malfunctions, no faults with added use of a TiAL wastegate and an optional TiAL BOV. The ECU calibration allows for a MAFless operation that now uses speed density (MAP Sensor). 2. Our Tubular Manifold utilizes a V-Band flange. Making switching turbine housings possible along with changing complete turbo assemblies, GT30,GT35,GT40 etc. Did we mention our manifold is completely designed and fabricated in house. 3. The Garrett 3586 included in our kit comes alive at 25 psi (it can operate upwards up to 40 psi) 4. All oil and coolant lines are custom assembled in house using only the best AN hoses and fittings. We decided to go with AN due to the reliability and flexibility of changing line configuration depending of vehicle model. 5. At low boost (16-18psi) we experienced 560whp, 26psi psi, 632whp. With proper fuel, ignition, clutch, engine upgrades power levels closer to 750-800hp are completely possible. Our kit will include the following. -3586 Ball Bearing Turbocharger -Enzo Performance Tubular Manifold -Custom Coolant and Oil Lines/AN Fittings -Custom downpipe/Wastegate dump and hardware -Enzo Performance Custom ECU Calibration. -TiAL Wastegate and optional BOV -Custom Charge and intake Piping with High Flow Air-filter. -Hallman-Pro Boost Controller with Vacuum fittings and Lines We are limiting our Group Buy purchase price to the first 20 participants. We already have a few names on the list so please email if you are seriously considering our package. Current group buy pricing will begin at $7685. Expect that number to approach closer to $9650 when the group buy is over. For any questions please give us a call 631-920-6699 or email us today. We look forward to pushing the N55 platform, please join us Oct 2nd Sunday BBQ for a more in depth look into our turbo kit. Recommended supporting modifications. -Port injection -Enzo Performance TiAL BOV kit -Upgraded In-tank E85 Fuel Pump -JB4 For logging and Map switching @info@enzoperformance

    Just a hair from the 10's! That is a bit of a bummer but considering this is not an automatic transmission run but a six-speed manual pass it is definitely to be applauded. Especially considering the very healthy 136 miles per hour trap speed is more than enough to break into the 10's. The specs of the car are below along with more details from VTT: Built Short block Stock head with bad valve guide seals GC turbos BMS DP's Custom Exhaust dual 3" into 4" Shotgun Single Barrel VTT Rear Silicone intake Custom VTT front intake VTT DCI Custom VTT Catch can set up EOS Intake manifold with built in PI Custom LPFP set up 100% E85 for fuel MHD tune by V8bait FLASH ONLY ADE Intercooler AEM AQ1 data logging set up with Dual EGT, Dual BP, Manifold Pressure, FMIC In / out temps FULL WEIGHT (3710 lbs with driver) Hey guys, We took the car that we just ran 169.9 mph in the 1/2 mile AZ NFZ roll race to the 1/4 mile track (SAC) and ran11.04 @ 136 mph. We were having fun on our way to get into the 10's until Tony broke a drive shaft. We have pics vids and some vbox data below. Couple things of note; this is the same tune we ran our best speed at NFZ with, same car (no hardware or software changes). Out of curiosity we weighed the car (with Tony in it) right before the races and it rang in at 3710 lbs. These things are NOT light weight. 11.04 @ 136.46 mph run Vid: Broken Driveshaft Vid: Log links: AEM: MHD: Final Thoughts: If there was any doubt that the GC's can put down some serious horsepower, we have the trap speed, we have the car weight, a simple horsepower calculator (like... or will show we're putting down some serious real world power. No other twin turbo offering on the market comes close.

    Massive numbers here for the N55 on pump gas. ACF Performance out of Brazil is making some waves on the N55 platform. They also are in progress of opening up their US office and distributor network. You can check out which is in the process of being updated. Let's get to the important stuff which is the Stage 3 turbo kit. Here is what is included: -BorgWarner EFR Turbocharger -Stainless Steel Exhaust Manifold Twin-Scroll with Carbon Fiber HeatShield -Inlet 4" -Stainless Steel Downpipe 3.5" -Turbo Oil lines and block adapters -Turbo Coolant lines and block adapters -Coolant lines and tubes -Extension Harness for EWG and Diverter Solenoid Relocation -Vacuum Lines/Solenoid for Pneumatic DV Conversion -DEI Gold Wrap for plastic parts -DEI Exhaust Wrap for Exhaust Manifold and Downpipe -Brand new BMW Exhaust Gaskets, Turbo gaskets, oil and coolant seals, couplers with SS Clamps. -Bolts, Nuts, Washers and all hardware for assembly -PenDrive with detailed Install Instructions video for DIY users Suggested upgrades: -Additional Oil Cooler kit -TurboSmart DV Upgrade The ACF Performance N55 turbo kit starts at $8999.99 It fits EWG and PWG models and they are working on an X-Drive solution. It is not cheap but you definitely get what you pay for and turbo upgrades on the N55 platform are only getting more competitive. Compare the 17 psi flash tuned number to the 28 psi and 31 psi upgraded turbo dyno numbers: Here's some more pics of the kit: The US location for ACF Performance will open in Hinsdale, IL. If you have any questions, please contact @RicardoACF - BorgWarner EFR 8374 Turbocharger (63mm version): This is one of the best turbochargers available today! Its power capabilities and spool behavior make it the best choice for keeping packaging very compact and reducing the number of necessary components. An integrated diverter valve makes it possible to upgrade to our Stage 3 Kit while still keeping the stock charge pipe design. (Either the stock TIC pipe, or an upgraded aluminum TIC with the stock connections, can be used.) - Handcrafted Stainless Steel Exhaust Manifold: Our CAD designed twin-scroll exhaust manifold became a reality through the work of our incredibly skilled in-house welder that used CNC cut flanges to create a state-of-the-art TIG welded exhaust manifold. The thick schedule tube walls and grounded welding greatly improve the durability of the manifold and effectively protect against cracks. - Electronic Wastegate Compatible: The ACF Performance S3 Turbocharger kit enables you to continue using the stock Electronic Wastegate- so, what does that mean? It means that our kit works with any flash tune on the market, including the stock tune- like the Pure Stage 1 & 2 turbos- so you won't be attached to any single flash tuner. Also, who doesn't love the capability of changing maps on the fly using the JB4 as a boost controller, or using our built-in MultiMaps FlashTuneClick here to enlarge? (Which allows you to change flash maps with the touch of an in-dash button.) - Upgrading Is Possible: This first version of our kit was designed to work with the 63mm EFR, and could spool off-the-line even better than the Pure Stage 2 using our latest exhaust manifold design. But if you are a rolling race addict and want to extract the most top-end power possible from your N55, we can offer our kit with the most powerful turbocharger available from the BW EFR turbo line. It is capable of 1000bhp, and we have no doubt that the 67mm will work with the rest of our kit. Also, the turbo is exactly the same for both sizes, so they are easily interchangeable. - Thermal Protection: One of the most challenging aspects of this project was keeping temperatures controlled under the hood. We have restricted the airflow near the manifold considerably with all of our custom plumbing and the massive EFR turbo, as our long-term tests showed some premature wear in the plastic components of the engine due to the higher temperature under the hood. We decided to provide all of the necessary materials to isolate high temperatures inside the exhaust tubes and properly protect all other components. In addition to thermal exhaust wrap, we will also be providing a carbon-fiber heat shield. A view of our test vehicle engine bay (the engine cover doesn't fit perfectly because of the PI used, not because of our turbo.)

    There are a handful of Australian BenzBoost members with very powerful W204 C63 AMG's. Part of this is due to Weistec's strong Australian presence as the 3.0 liter twin screw Weistec superchargers are powering the fastest C63's in the world some of which are Australian. Well, you can add yet another Australian C63 to the list of most powerful C63's as BenzBoost member @RNS-11Z is gunning for over 1000 horsepower. How does he intend to get there? With all of this: Weistec Stage 3 Weistec Gearbox Modified valve body New standard convertor Weistec ice trunk Forged Pistons and Rods CnC ported heads Wave track LSD Autowerks Tune Upgrade fuel system 20psi pulley and tune He wants a low 9 second car: BenzBoost will be following his progress and as soon as the build is completed we will post results. Good luck @RNS-11Z, we're all pulling for you!

    Isn't the Supra supposed to be the highway monster? This is a very impressive run by a single turbo BMW 335i N54 with a Precision Turbo 6766 single turbocharger conversion. The 335i was in kill mode at roughly 40 psi of boost (on the stock motor) and it shows. The Supra just gets walked. The video is not the best quality but you easily see what happens. This is a stout highway BMW.

    Carbon fiber wheels are the new big thing. For years, wheel companies made carbon overlay rims to get the look of carbon fiber but the aftermarket now is beginning to offer a nice selection of full carbon fiber wheels. Keep in mind Ford sells the Mustang GT350R right off the showroom floor with carbon fiber rims. ESE Carbon is a new company and honestly we do not know much about them. There is no feedback to go on but BoostAddict member @BerndV ordered a set for his E63 AMG. We'll see what he has to say about them. On paper the rims are incredible. A 19x9 wheel weighs only 11 pounds. That is significantly lighter than anything else on the market. The wheels are available in sizes ranging from 18 inches to 22 inches. At $2000+ per wheel these are not cheap but it is pricing on par with a set of HRE wheels which are far more about style than substance. Outfitting an all wheel drive car with these rims will make a substantial difference in performance by reducing unsprung weight at all four corners. Now to see people start running these rims and their feedback.

    Well, this is pretty nice work wouldn't you say? Just barely short of 700 wheel horsepower on a manual transmission swapped E82 135i N54 with the Motiv 750 single turbo kit upgrade. Additional fuel comes courtesy of port injection which is controlled by the BMS JB4. Additional details below from @Terry@BMS: Had a chance to get the 135i back on the dyno for a few runs just to ensure everything is running fine post MT swap. The car is running a MOTIV 750 kit, JB4 controlled port injection, and straight E85. On the back end flash I decided not to check off desensitize knock sensors since the car has plenty of power for what I need anyway. The negative trade off is probably around 20whp at higher boost levels. But on the plus side it's probably a bit safer this way. Considering its on an older stock motor that's not a bad thing I guess. Also tested out the NLS on the dyno which itself worked pretty well. I ran it at 12psi (wg spring) then again at 23psi just shifting leisurely. Something did come up I am concerned with though. With the 3.15 gears in 5th at around 6950rpm it's only doing around 165mph at least on the dyno. The gear calculator says it should be doing 170mph so maybe the dyno speed is just off... I'm targeting a 170mph+ trap and was hoping I could do that in 5th. Are you really fast MT single turbo guys having to shift to 6th in the 1/2 mile?

    With MotorTrend wrapping up their Best Driver's Car 2016 competition having all the cars together provides for a great opportunity to do a big drag race. They have been doing this every year for the past six years following the competition and who can blame them for the extra content? Obviously, some of these cars are more at home on the roadcourse (*cough* Viper ACR *cough*) than the dragstrip and that should be the focus but this drag race is undeniably fun. While they call this the world's greatest drag race (such creative self-promotion guys) it does not take place on an actual prepped drag strip. They use the tarmac at the defunct El Toro airbase in Irvine, California. This surface does not lend itself well to the rear wheel drive cars and MotorTrend doesn't seem capable of putting on the world's best roll on race to get both perspectives. Ok, ok, enough nitpicking but it is important to highlight the conditions in a drag race. They throw in a Charger Hellcat and cut the Aston Martin (lame) for good measure and we're off. No surprise that on the dusty old runway the all wheel drive vehicles lead of the line. Now, as this is not done a dragstrip do not take these 1/4 mile times as representative of what you can hit on the strip. They are timing the cars electronically and the times are inflated due to this. We have yet to see a stock Huracan or R8 V10 Plus top 130 in the 1/4 mile on the dragstrip. Now, due to the traction issues let's list the cars in order of trap speed to truly get an idea of who is the fastest in a straight line: McLaren 570S - 132.0 Audi R8 V10+ - 130.3 AMG GT-S - 126.7 Viper ACR - 124.7 Acura NSX - 123.6 Nissan GT-R - 123.4 Jag F-type SVR - 122.7 Porsche 911S - 120.5 Shelby GT350R - 118.9 BMW M4 GTS - 118.8 Camaro 1LE - 114.2 The 570S is the real straight line champ and if you actually properly launch it you will watch it destroy an R8 V10 Plus in a drag race.

    The 991 GT3 RS running from a roll is something we have all seen before. It's certainly a stout car but it is built for the track. The aerodynamics slow it down due to increased drag but the low curb weight (roughly 400 pounds less than the E92 335i), rear wheel drive layout, and high revving 4.0 liter flat-6 make for an efficient package. The GT3 RS is slower than a rear wheel drive Huracan from a roll. It did beat a tuned SL600 from a dig which is something an N54 on upgraded stock housings is capable of as well. What about this particular 335i in the video? It gets pulled right off the line as if it was in the wrong gear or has the stock housing turbo upgrade with the worst lag in the world. It does finally come back strong up top but with all the torque down low the N54 has with a turbo upgrade the driver didn't seem to have it where he should have on the tach at the start of the race considering the terrible start. + Palm Turbos Stage 1 + MHD Mappad by BQ Tuning + Supersprint catback X-Pipe + VTT Inlets + Intercooler från KL Racing + Ultimate Racing downpipes without catalysts + Walbro 455 pump + 200cell Magnaflow sportcatalysts Porsche 911 GT3 RS is stock

    That is according to MotorTrend of course. After the testing of the lap times at Laguna Seca and the subjective impressions were factored in McLaren's 570S came out on top. The BMW F82 M4 GTS on the other hand finished second to last and we can officially call the car a failure at this point. If you want to check out the laptimes and videos click here. The subjective impressions rank the cars as follows: 1st - McLaren 570S 2nd - Shelby GT350R 3rd - Porsche 911S 4th - Camaro 1LE 5th - Viper ACR 6th - AMG GT-S 7th - Audi R8 V10+ 8th - Acura NSX 9th - Jag F-type SVR 10th - Nissan GT-R 11th - BMW M4 GTS 12th - AM V12 Vantage S The Nissan GT-R in 10th place is about right considering it is a soulless robot that best excels at going from a dig with power upgrades. That's really where it has made its name and please do not act like it is a great driver's car or track weapon. It's a heavy soulless robot with little driver involvement. The McLaren 570S on the other hand is a lithe and technologically advanced driver's tool. It's also light at 3188 pounds and incredibly fast in a straight line. It's hard to beat but it also costs over $200k as tested.

Ferrari is simply a bitch when it comes to these comparisons. Unless they can control all the variables they won't participate. They are not run by enthusiasts and frankly do not deserve the business of enthusiasts. Posers on the other hand should continue to line up and bend over just to get f@#ked by dealers offering them the illusion that the artificially over inflated price they paid for their prancing horse is worth it. The overrated Italians are scared of the Viper ACR. They should be, it owned everyone. Ferrari even tries to hold it back. What a bunch of insecure Italian douchebags. Does the ACR really deserve to be 5th? Allow me to translate that for you: The Viper is loud and scary. It's the best driver's tool but we're a bunch of old men that have gone soft. We readily admit it's the best at doing what this competition is about, driving, but it's just too much car and too involving. Seriously, grow a pair MotorTrend. Reward Dodge for making a car that scared Ferrari and Lamborghini into staying home under the bed peeking out from time to time to make sure there isn't an ACR driving by. What about the F82 M4 GTS? Everyone should be sick and tired of hearing about this $134k failure from BMW. Just shut up about it already. It's hot garbage. The M in M4 GTS stands for Mistake not Motorsport. If that's the best BMW M can do for $134k when producing a dedicated high performance track car you might as well just shut the whole thing down and send everyone to work at 'i' instead. 'i' don't care anymore and neither should you. Let's to get real performance cars now and the one that should have won. The Shelby GT350R. Is it a higher performance driver's car than the McLaren 570S? No. Is it a better driver's car? Arguably, yes. When you factor in the amazing (and unique) powerplant along with the sticker price you scratch your head wondering how Ford pulled this car off. It's manual only. No dual clutch and no nonsense. Only real driver's should apply. Shouldn't that bump it up in a driver's car competition? How about that it beats up on more expensive cars? How about that it is the first production car with carbon fiber wheels? How about that the Americans are delivering engines that even Ferrari states are no longer economically feasible? Sure, it's not perfect but when you factor in the entire package the Shelby GT350R truly deserves the victory over something like the McLaren 570S that is purchased by spoiled brats. The fact it is American and the Americans are producing the best performance cars for the money today is just icing on the cake.

    Getting close to the 11's from a factory 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbo with bolt on modifications is definitely impressive but you already know the AMG M133 2.0 liter is a hell of a motor. AMS with their bolt on Alpha modifications managed a 12.168 @ 114.53. What are the modifications? An Alpha Performance heat exchanger, auxiliary heat exchanger, upgraded air filter and intake, downpipe, and Alpha tune. The total bill for those modifications? $4899.75. Not exactly cheap but there are other value options for the platform. The point ultimately is that you can run 12 flat with just basic mods on the 45 AMG models.

    All good things must come to an end but fret not driving enthusiasts! Arguably the best all around enthusiast tire on the market is getting even better. Say goodbye to the Michelin Pilot Super Sport and hello to the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S. Michelin seems to be borrowing their naming from Porsche (though notice the 4 and S are separated). Many believe the Pilot Suport Sport is the best tire on the market and it does dominates comparison tests. While it's relatively new it was introduced four years ago. What are the changes? Well, the pattern and sidewall are a bit different and no doubt the composition is as well. Beyond that we do not know much about it other than it is set to be the new all around tire king and it has big shoes to fill. Apparently wet and dry performance is better and the tires will last 30,000+ miles. The tire won't launch until March 2017 and even then it will only fit 19 and 20 inch wheel sizes initially. It will be a while before it fully phases out the Pilot Super Sport.

    That did not take long, did it? After the leak today BMW officially released photos of the new BMW 5-Series. Somehow, it does not look all that new. It kind of looks like the F10 5-Series and the F30 3-Series got drunk together and the G30 is what resulted. It is not a bad looking car it just does not do anything to push the BMW styling language. It plays things so safe that looking at it produces a yawn. Ok, so the styling is not anything new or exciting. What about what is under the skin? BMW claims the G30 is lighter than the F10 generation but at this point who isn't sick of hearing BMW BS the world about weight loss? This G30 generation 5-Series originally was slated to weigh 500 pounds less than the F10 generation. BMW says whatever they want to in press releases to try to look good whether it is accurate or not. The first US models are a 530i with a B48 engine and a 540i with a B58 engine. An M550i with a twin turbo V8 will come later. As will the new all wheel drive F90 M5. What do you think about it? Let's see if anyone is excited about the new 5.

    A nice comparison here despite only getting one camera angle. Fortunately, that angle is on the slowest car which is the BMW E90 M3 DCT which is supercharged with the ESS-VT2 625 kit. You would expect based on the (marketing) dynos ESS posts much stronger performance. The car is said to have around 520 whp and it sure looks that way. The GTR just runs away from the other two cars. The Hellcat and the M3 are pretty even but after what feels like a minute it pulls slightly ahead. That 4500+ curb weight certainly hurts even with the insane stock power.

    Congratulations to TPG Tuning who continues to push the S55 3.0 liter I6 engine platform despite the problems with the engine design. It is only through this kind of work that the engine can be addressed and strengthened to reliably handle this kind of power and torque. And it is quite a bit of power and torque. 745 horsepower at the wheels with a peak torque number of 747 lb-ft at the wheels. What is the recipe? As follows: TPG Built S55 TPG Built Head TPG Billet Crank Hub / Damper Pure Turbos Upgraded Stock Location Twins Driveshaft Shop Axles and Carbon Driveshaft ShepTrans Built DCT Dodson Motorsport Clutch Burger JB4 HCP Tuning Backend Flash Evolution of Speed Intercooler Fuel-It Port Injection The main question here of course is will the TPG Billet Crank Hub hold? The crank hub is the big issue in the F82 M4 and F80 M3 aftermarket and even an issue stock. One BimmerBoost member had this piece fail on him six times. Yes, six. If TPG has the solution then the S55 motor might finally be an aftermarket platform one can modify with confidence. Time will tell. For now, congrats to TPG Tuning.

    There are turbo upgrade options out there in the AMG 5.5 liter V8 world. Most of you know about them and they are solid options but there is no true value option. Well, Pure Turbos decided to enter the M157 market with an upgrade for the OEM turbo housings. What is the pricing? How much power? These details are not available yet but will be soon: The main thing to take away here is that more competition is a good thing and Pure Turbos will likely offer the best turbo upgrade value in the segment.

    Here is a Pure Stage 2 turbo upgraded BMW F13 M6 S63TUV8 doing some work. Easy work really as none of the cars in the video pose much of a challenge. That is a testament to how stout this upgrade is and just how powerful an S63TU with a turbo upgrade is as well. Run 1 vs. VTT N54 Not sure you can call this one a race. You can barely see the 335i in the M6's mirrors. Run 2 vs. modded C6 Z06 The mod list on this one is unknown. Not great recording here by the passenger but the M6 decisively wins. Run 3 vs. Renntech tuned S63 convertible with M157 turbo upgrade The M157 is certainly a stout powerplant but keep in mind it is in a very heavy car. The S63 Coupe is already 4700 pounds and the convertible will add a couple hundred to that. The S63 gets on the gas early but the M157 torque down low helps as well. Still, the M6 runs it down without issue and passes easily. Clearly it's a much faster car. Run 4 vs. Pure Stage 2 upgraded F82 M4 S55 Poor filming again due to the M4 being on the driver's side but you can still see the M6 pull ahead. The M4 at least hangs in there decently compared to some of the other cars. There is a final run with a C5 but it's not much of a run at all. Basically, what you learn here is that an M6 with the Pure Stage 2 upgrade is a beast if you didn't know that already.

    Another day, another 10 second S55 powered F8X BMW. This one is an F82 M4 with the Xona Rotor S55 turbo upgrade. The S55 engine tuning is a hybrid piggyback and ECU flash setup with a BMS JB4 in conjunction with flash dyno tuning from Precision Tuning. The result is 4 consecutive 10.9 second passes at the ATCO drag strip in New Jersey. Let's go over the modifications: Xona Turbos JB4 Precision Tuning Custom Tune & Flash by @kbaldi29 AEM Meth Kit Dodson Sportsman Clutch Packs DSS 1200 hp axles ER Downpipes ER Chargepipes Maximum PSI Intake Mickey Thompson ET Street S/S 305 35 18s. These modifications result in 648 rwhp and 653 rwtq: Congrats to @NJ-M4 on the consistent 10 second performance but he no doubt is concerned about the S55 crank hub issue. Thus far, he has avoided any problems.

    Pretty much every BMW blog or website will stay away from commenting on tuner wars. This one doesn't. It does a disservice to the community to sit back while collecting vendor dollars and allow tuners to make whatever claims they want to without backing them up or providing proof which could potentially put your engine in jeopardy if using their product. A dyno graph is often considered proof. The problem is that dyno graphs can be self-serving when coming from tuners. Let's take an example from HC Tuning aka BimmerBoost member @lfelunden: 721 wheel horsepower and 748 lb-ft of torque at the wheels from a bolt on S63TU on meth are very strong numbers. You will also notice it is stated that HC Tuning is making another 100+ wheel horsepower over PP-Performance which previously tuned the car. A 100 whp spread over another tune? Over 100 lb-ft of torque to boot? Tunes can vary but that level of variance is suspect. Was it a canned PP-P tune? Was it a Stage 1 file? Was it even custom dyno tuned on meth? Leaving these aspects out implies that HC Tuning on the same car with the same tuning is getting huge gains making it seem like HC Tuning is far better than PP-P. Maybe that's the case but BimmerBoost would bet money that if you got both Jimmy Pelka of PP-P and Halim of HC Tuning on the same dyno with this same car to do a custom dyno tune the main area of variance would be how far each would be willing to push to get higher peak figures for bragging rights. Now this is where things get interesting. Halim of HC Tuning was puffing his chest out to anyone including Mission Performance on the forums who wrote this in response: Mission states HC Tuning disabled the CEL to hit these figures, lifted one of their files from a car that was later modified, and basically was unsafe in the manner tuned to hit these figures. Now Mission states they re-tuned that car that made the figures 'unsafely' and it resulted in even higher figures: Is it true the tune was unsafe? Probably. Is it true a Mission tune was lifted? Probably. Tuners steal tunes all the time. ALL THE TIME. Some of the most reputable guys in the business have gotten code from others. It's just how it is. Protecting tunes is difficult if not impossible. Now HC tuning says Mission stole his file and worked from that file to hit the numbers they did. So, he said she said nonsense: What is the truth? What tuner do you trust? The answer is, none of them. They are all interested in self-promotion. Mission Performance came to BimmerBoost early on asking to be a vendor and for some help in a tuning situation involving a dispute with GSR Performance/Technik: BimmerBoost helped get the info out there and once we did suddenly Mission Performance became difficult to contact. @lfelunden has been pushing his products on forums (including this one) for free for years. The bottom line is this. Both are opportunists trying to use the forums to convince you to give them money. Don't trust any tuner but trust independent results posted of their tuning. The truth in this instance is left up for you to decide.

    Once upon a time a Swede named Gustav headed a website known as M5bored. He would post various race videos as promotion over and over to build up interest and then sell the board. The thing is, fanboys would use these videos as evidence of superiority of one car over another. Without any data you don't truly know what is going on. As is the case in the video posted the other day where the GT3 RS gets a big lead on the 335i with upgraded turbos. BimmerBoost speculated the car was in the wrong gear but some fanboys stated the Porsche is just superior and lighter and blah blah blah. Low and behold BimmerBoost was e-mailed the rematch where the 335i starts in the correct gear. The GT3 RS still jumps but the race goes as it should be this time around: So why is this Gustav fellow at these runway events only posting the videos showing cars in a certain light? Well, in the case of the GT3 RS it is because he is using his friend's GT3 RS to make additional promotional race videos and doesn't want to upset him. It's why you don't see a lot of content showing a different outcome because Swedes are sensitive people. Let this be a lesson in how easy it is for results to be misleading without data. 335i: + Palm Turbos Stage 1 + MHD Mappad by BQ Tuning + Supersprint catback X-Pipe + VTT Inlets + Intercooler från KL Racing + Ultimate Racing downpipes without catalysts + Walbro 455 pump + 200cell Magnaflow sportcatalysts Porsche 911 GT3 RS is stock

    We all know the Tesla Model S P100D is quick off the line. GPS test numbers showed 0-60 in 2.5 seconds and 0-100 in 6.5. The 1/4 mile trap speed on the VBOX used for the GPS numbers showed 124.5 GPS trap speed timing often inflates trap speeds versus real world drag strip numbers. That is the case here. The Tesla is still fast but on an actual strip runs 10.825 @ 122.93. The Huracan manages 10.843 @ 127.23. The two cars and very close and it really comes down to reaction time for the win. The Tesla is hard to beat right off the line but you can see just how much harder the Huracan is pulling past the 1/8 mile. From a roll, the Tesla has no chance. Certainly impressive performance from the P100D but it is a bit of a one trick pony.

    The S54 proves yet again what a beast it is. If you are going to call any BMW engine the German 2JZ it's the S54. The proof is in the 902 horsepower and 644 lb-ft of torque at the wheels Dynojet pull from a Maximum PSI turbocharged E46 M3 S54. Oh, and this is tuned on the factory ECU. Fuel is E85 ethanol and it certainly helps that there are no direct injection fuel system limitation, right? Yet another thing the S54 has in common with the 2JZ for those who keep track of those kinds of things. In all seriousness, congratulations to Maximum PSI. This is incredible power on the stock internals and a tremendous record. It is great to see naturally aspirated M engines show what they can do when properly boosted and tuned. Hats off to the best six cylinder BMW engine ever made.

    When tuners announce parts and upgrades, that's fine. AMS is reputable so they are often taken at their word. They announced a bevy of performance upgrades for new turbocharged Porsche models last month including the Macan S and Turbo. They even stated development was already well under way: So these products are well into their development stages yet just the other day this was posted: Big, bad AMS can't afford their own development car and is begging for one on Facebook? Seriously? They claim their products are well into their development stages yet how far is that if they haven't even fitted anything to a Macan? What you should take away from this is that AMS products for the new 991.2 models or Macan S and Turbo are still quite a ways off and nowhere near what anyone should call deep into development. Don't hold your breath.

    Over 600 horsepower at the wheels from the OEM BMW S55 3.0 liter I6 turbochargers is great to see. Especially considering this is a BMS JB4 tuned example with full bolt on modifications. Oh, and how about 668 lb-ft of torque at the wheels to go with it? That torque peak comes rather early and then it is a pretty steep decline toward redline. That is the nature of modern BMW turbo motors though. There does not even seem to be a point to revving this car out to 7500 rpm. The factory redline seems to be BMW trying to claim they still 'rev high' more than actually for top end power. BMW M engine design aside these are great results for what amounts to bolt ons with methanol injection on an E30 blend of fuel.

    If you are going to buy an Audi to tune what do you get? Maybe the new S4 or S5 with their fancy twin scroll single turbo V6? Do you spend all that money on an RS7? How about a car cheaper and lighter than either with a dual clutch transmission that already has a bevvy of turbo kits available? The 2.5 TFSI I5 may be slightly bumped to 400 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque but the important thing is the A3 chassis gets the highly awarded motor for the first time ever in the USA. It comes obviously as a sedan and with a dual clutch transmission sending power to all four wheels. The engine has been with us for a while winning 7 straight engine of the year awards in its displacement category. That is just frankly remarkable. You want 744+ wheel horsepower out of the motor? It's not going to be a problem. The transmission cooperating will be the problem. A little inside information at APR told AudiBoost that they will be addressing the transmission. Let's not forget APR also has 600+ all wheel horsepower options as well as engine build options for the 2.5 TFSI. The point being tuners already have experience with this engine and it is just a matter of cracking the ECU and TCU which will be done quickly. The Audi RS3 is the lightest turbocharged sedan in the Audi lineup and once again the only 'RS' model other than the TT-RS with a dual clutch transmission. This car is going to be a tuner's dream. About time Audi!

    Very cool race to see here and the S55 ECU flash tuned BMW F80 M3 is going up against very stout competition in the McLaren 650S. To give you an idea of how capable the 650S a BoostAddict member took his stock MP4-12C to the strip which is slightly less powerful and ran 10.6 @ 135. The 650S is a very fast car and considerably lighter than the F80 M3. Even in stock form it should be favored over a bolt on tuned M3. We do not know the full specs for the M3 here but it has an ECU flash and assume downpipes along with ethanol, meth, or race fuel. Are the turbos upgraded? It sure seems like it. The M3 wins the first race. It pulls as the race goes on which just shouldn't happen. The second race however has the 650S get a better launch and it destroys the M3. The slip doesn't reflect the second result as it shows the M3 as trapping higher and being close to even running 10.5 as well: Where is the second slip where the 650S dominates? Conveniently left out.
