    How about 18 cores? CPU Name Cores / Threads Price Core i9-7980XE 18 / 36 $1999 Core i9-7960X 16 / 32 $1699 Core i9-7940X 14 / 28 $1399 Core i9-7920X 12 / 24 $1199 Core i9-7900X 10 / 20 $999 $2k for a processor is steep but I wonder just how insane the performance will be.

    Sticky started a thread Motiv vs. VTT race in N54
    Ok, this has the potential to explode but considering how these two are going at it let's settle this on the track. Tony says Motiv won't race. Motiv just e-mailed me saying they gladly will. How about we settle this in a positive manner (there are no losers with vendors pushing the platform) on the track? Ok? I'll gladly organize it so it is fair to the schedules and distances for both parties. Oh, and I'll grill burgers. Cool? Everyone cool?

    j_hynson started a thread "RSRECTN" build thread in N54
    As some know I spent a lot of time building/ having built a 335 sedan and it was recently totalled. Build thread for that car: I picked up a 2008 135i M-sport and am calling it "RSRECTN" (ressurection if you don't get it). Going to swap everything from the 335 to the 135 and if I can get it done in time I'll have the DCT built and put it in Here are some pics of the car. It's not detailed or anything just pictures i have from the dealer and one that I took. Dark blue with shadow trim (i think that's what it's called)

    With all this talk about cams I think people forget there is PLENTY you can do with the factory cams and the amount of adjustment they are capable of. I know some tuners are changing VANOS tables. I also know some tuners are only capable of ramping in boost. This separates the 'real' guys from those who just play with tunerpro. Why is nobody talking about VANOS tuning on the platform?

    We finally got around to finishing up the testing our on S55 Stage turbo's, and the results as we expected. We picked up the Stock motor S55 power record, previous it was 728, we made 734WHP, and 729WHP on two different pulls this am. We also managed to make 762WTQ on a more aggressive throttle map. Also if anyone wants to say glory pulls, here are 10 runs all above 700WHP from yesterday and this am. The 734WHP, and 729WHP runs were made on the E30 OTS BM3 map, no special tuning, the problem is the E30 scaler is too low up top, and even with PI adding a ton of fuel, we are just plain out of fuel. Dzenno gave us a map with better E85 scaler, more aggressive throttle, and 2-3 degrees less timing, it picked up the tq down low, and it pulls clean all the way up every run. The E30 OTS map is prob a little aggressive timing wise for these boost levels so we wont run it there, custom maps are always better for these levels. As you can see car is making 500WTQ by around 3300, and 700 by 3800K. This is a solid 500+ RPM better spool than the other turbos you see on the market. A big thanks of course To Dzenno at BM3 for the help, its fun working with him again! Also to Terry, Mike at EOS, and Bell intercoolers for the great intercooler. Not to mention the owner who let us use his car as a test bed! There is one S55 making more power at 745WHP (11WHP more), which is a fully built motor, fully ported head, 9 second race car, and one car making more Power / TQ at 763WHP/776WTQ (14WTQ more) and its running a 100 shot of NOS. Impressive? We think so...:eusa-clap: We will be getting this car to the track, and 1/2 mile events very soon. Specs are as follows 2015 BMW M4 DCT Dodson Sportsman Clutch upgrade 100% Stock motor Stock Crank hub VTT Stage2 turbos VTT silicone charge pipes BMS intakes Aftermarket downpipes Catless exhaust EOS V2 top mount PI manifold PFS Double Shot LPFP Upgrade VTT / Bell Air to Water intercooler Custom BM3 flash by Dzenno JB4 100% E85 Boost level 34-35 psi Log:

    Some of you have heard rumors about races, call outs and related shenanigans. All that really happened is that we were called out by a competitor. Terms were: -the competitor would pay for car transport to a race near them -the competitor would pay for flights to get at least Tony out to the race -if they won, we'd reimburse them After some thought, we accepted, tentatively, provided that transportation both ways was wagered, included a couple guys from the VTT team, and we added a grand on top to make it fun. They did not want to agree to those terms. Otherwise the current record belongs to a full weight E90 with a manual transmission. If you want to break the record -good luck, have fun, we'll be the first ones to congratulate you as we know what it takes. If you want to call us out for a race, be prepared to clearly present the terms and hopefully stick to them. If the terms are mutually agreeable we'll set something up. Otherwise, same as normal, we'll likely be at the next NFZ or Shift S3CTOR in the vicinity of CA and AZ. Come by and say "hi", talk a little shit, have fun, maybe we'll even grill some burgers. We love what we do and enjoy all aspects of racing/competition.

    Di filter & LPFP restriction Line I don't know if this has been covered but here goes. So my di pump was always on the limits and dipping below 10 on the jb4 scale and as low as 7 While I was having a good look at an old di pump on the work bench I had a good look at the inlet and found that it has a very restrictive filter. But before removing the filter and not running one I went out and brought a 10 micron 175gph filter from earls and installed it on the car, which will make it an overkill in term of filtration but no such thing as over filtration unless it causes a restriction. At the same time I had a good look at the stainless lpfp line and it has 2 very restrictive bends which I was not fond of and after measuring them I found them quite smaller than the inlet port on the di pump. The first part of the lpfp line that joins the pump is great with no restriction but the line steps down a size after the LPFP sensor and the bends in the line are quite restrictive I went off to earls and we came up with the new line and the results are pretty impressive My di pump never dips below 10 and the lpfp line pressure is nice and solid This worked for me, its up to you if you want to try it and at your own risk and responsibility and any part of the fuel system should be worked on by a competent mechanic. This is with di filter in place This is with filter removed and 10 micron filter installed under the car but with the stainless line still in place, removing the di filter has the greatest effect on the pressures This is with the stainless LPFP replaced with the new one, I haven't been able to get to the track yet for a proper log but you can see there is a slight improvement, any improvement is good

    Does anyone care? Personally, I just think it's a cash grab for both. They both are very similar self-promoters. McGregor can't beat Floyd in boxing, come on. I think he knows he'll lose, he'll take his big check, then say Floyd should fight him in the Octagon so they double dip essentially and each saves face fighting on their own terms. Whatever. I'm not ordering.

    Who doesn't love a diesel flexing its muscles? This red E90 makes 488 whp and 680 wtq as shown by a previous dyno video. In this one though, it rips through the gears and leaves the F80 whimpering. To top it off, there is a nice constant coal rolling victory screen .

    We just got wind of another VTT customer doing some work at the strip with his GC lites. Ben is in the UK and has a beautiful 2006 RHD 6AT 335i with the following mods: VTT GC lites JB4 + Trebila tune (25 psi) E50 fuel Meth (75%, cm10& cm5) RB outlets VTT silicone inlets VRSF 7" HD FMIC VRSF Charge Pipe with HKS BOV RB PCV Valve BMS OCC Boost Concepts LPFP Minor weight reduction (-100kg) Hoosier DR2 275/40R17 Ben ran 11.19 @ 130.20 mph on an unprepped strip! This may be a UK record, we're not sure.... but regardless it's moving! Nice work Ben! Below are pics of the slip and a few shots of Ben's car. Nice job, we love seeing customers driving hard! Chris

    Another contender enters the N54 standalone market and this one appears to be ahead of Syvecs. The Syvecs system has been delayed repeatedly but SCS Delta has their system running on an N54 race car. Now, a race car system and a street car system are very different things. Let's take a look at what is included with the 2000 Pound Sterling SCS Delta system: Complete engine management system for the BMW N54 DI engine . SCS Delta 800 ECU pre mapped for a standard engine. SCS Delta Piezo IDM. Modified BMW engine wiring loom (must be supplied as an exchange). CAN-USB Interface Lead time on this product is typically 3-4 weeks. Is this a plug and play system designed to maintain all the electronics and support a dual clutch transmission like Syvecs is attempting to deliver? Not exactly: The main thing to gather from this is there is another option that can be adapted and a UK tuner by the name of APT (Automotive Performance Tuning) is using it in their E82 1-Series race car. That car is stripped out and not running factory gauges so it does not exactly apply to the street crowd. The more options for N54 engine control the better though, right?

    Someone please put this poor Civic out of its misery. WTF do you even say about this car? There is no shame in not having money to modify a car or to do some incredible build. Why completely ruin a car and make it look like a pile of garbage though? There are those who say this is the only way for some to get attention but why would you want the kind of attention this Civic brings? It can barely drive on the road. The exhaust is beyond words. Why? WHY? The only thing on this car that makes any sense is the bumper sticker which reads, 'I'm so gay I don't even drive straight.' :facepalm:

    With me swapping over stuff from the 335 to the 135 I'm also making the transition to a dual clutch transmission as well as upgrading some other stuff. All parts listed have less than 2,000 miles on them and are fully functional. If interested let me know and I'll come up with a price -level 10 transmission 1000hp package w/bulletproof converter and valve body. I have invoice to show the work done to anyone interested. Yes this trans is a good trans and has held power as well as went through a proper break in. -fuel-it stage 3 pump -3.46 geared bolted big pumpkin diff with mfactory LSD and Drive Shaft shop 1000 hp axles (must be sold together) -factory 135i axles - if the intake manifold turns out to be what I want I will sell the motiv port injection plate and rail. Will not come with fuel lines or fpr -transmission 4000 obo -fuel it stage 3 pump 500 obo -LSD 3.46 gears with drive shaft shop axles 1900 obo

    Another GTBored video showing a BMW crushing its opposition. It is not hard to believe that a tuned M6 Competition Package will pull away from a CTS-V but this is not even a race. The starting speed is 80 kph (50 mph) which favors the BMW. For whatever reason, Cadillac CTS-V's are never shown doing well in these videos. The LT4 V8 is a stout mill and with bolt ons can easily dispatch tuned S63TU's. The HCP tune on the M6 no doubt is solid but it would be great to see a tuned CTS-V and an actual race for once and not just an M car putting instant bus lengths on whatever they put next to it. This video feels like a marketing piece for the tuner more than anything else.

    Share time! So my goal was to install two Walbro 450 pumps so that I could run e85 and push boost above 17 psi on the stock turbos and in the future possibly run a PI setup. I looked at a few companies offerings but I decided that I could build something that rivaled and even bettered what is currently on the market for a cheaper cost. This is not a knock on any company or their pricing for dual intank pumps but rather my Colt/DSM mentality to do it yourself and learn more about your car in the process. I’m not sure how this forum feels about posting pricing so I will intentionally leave this information out. You can PM me if you want to know where I picked up my parts. For this build I bought: Used stock fuel bucket – junk yard 2 Walbro 450 Pumps with electrical connectors (no fuel socks needed) 2 Holley Hydramats (model 16-111) - 15”x3” for Walbro pumps I contacted 07Tundra (Jose) for his help with this project…none of this would not have been possible without his help. He took the used bucket and with some modifications came up with this: What you see are two Walbro fuel pumps in a modified stock fuel bucket with an adapter to hold the pumps in place. Here is a look at the adapter as it was being laid out for use: The two pumps feed into PTE tubing and a PTE Y adapter. When I decide to go PI I will probably go back and feed only one pump into the stock fuel line and use the other pump to feed the PI. I cut a hole in the top of the fuel pump bucket top and fed through the wiring for the secondary pump. The main pump uses the stock wiring and is controlled by the DME as is the stock pump. The second pump is controlled by a Hobbs Switch mounted in the trunk. I am using the “prototype” adapter. I’ve been told that a newer version exists that looks more like this: My total cost for this project is less than what I would have paid another company for their version of the same thing, with the added bonus of being able to utilize the newest technology being the hydramats on dual pumps which no company currently offers. I’ve been driving the car with this setup installed and so far it has worked perfectly…no added pump noise and no LPFP fall off from E85 use.

    This 1M belongs to Australian BimmerBoost member @martymill. He decided to test his car out on the dragstrip with the much discussed @JD75 front mount intercooler upgrade. The proof is in the pudding so to speak and an 11.840 @ 121.54 on pump fuel is a great result. The car is tuned with MHD and a JB4 stack. This combo is very popular in the N54 tuning world. As for the rest of the mods: He was on street tires so there is room to improve the 60 foot considerably. He also plans on running E85 flex fuel when MHD releases it. A solid run regardless.

    You might remember a BMW E9 posted last month with an N54 engine under the hood. Awron made that swap possible as they supply the electronics to manage the engine. This N54 conversion package essentially facilitates an N54 swap into almost any BMW. Obviously newer models are more problematic due to the electronics but if you have dreamt about an E30 M3 with an N54 (why would you do that?) Awron can help facilitate it. Want an E39 with an N54? No problem. What about a classic X5? That can be done too. Basically, whatever you can come up with and it doesn't even have to be a BMW. Awron provides electronics for a variety of swaps including one BimmerBoost detailed earlier this year which was an S63 twin turbo V8 going into an E63 M6. What is the cost of this swap kit? Well, that part was not included. BimmerBoost is waiting on a response from Awron regarding the pricing and as soon as they respond (the European time difference makes quick communication difficult) an update will be posted.

    To back up our dyno numbers we asked the customer if we could take the car out for some 60-130 Vbox testing this am. He said no problem. I took the car out to my favorite private test track on my way in to the this am, and It quickly laid down the new record in only 3 tries! That was good enough for us, and I went on my way. The car prob has a 5.7 or so in it it we played around with shift points or found a road more level or with a down slope, but we will let the customer do some more testing. We just wanted to show this car is more than just dyno numbers. So we backed it up with some real world testing! S55 guys have a lot to look forward to from VTT, our cast S55 GC's are well into development, and should be available Q4 2017, or Q1 2018! :D
