    Hello, This is one of my first threads over here at BimmerBoost. I had been visiting tacopost but I have been frequenting this forum more and more. I hope you all find this of value. I would like to post my review of the El Cholo taco solution for proper satisfaction of human hunger. I have previously eaten many tacos outfitted with other ingredients and I was never close to satisfied. It just didn't feel like the tacos I know and love. There's this taco place I'm not affiliated with AT ALL called El Cholo that just has awesome tacos. Seriously, they are great! They also have Taco Tuesday with $2 taco deals and margarita deals that you wouldn't believe. They also treat me well and look at these tacos: The facility is pretty nice too: They even have enchiladas if you don't want tacos! I'm just a taco enthusiast trying to share my tacos enthusiasm with fellow taco enthusiasts. Please pay no attention to my e-mail address being sticky@elcholo.com. I hope you all have some yummy yummy tacos!

    This will hardly be the last battle of boosted E46 M3 S54 motors and boosted E9X M3 S65 motors. This battle is just heating up but here is an interesting race pitting an Active Autowerke Generation 2 Level III supercharged E90 M3 against a Maximum PSI Stage II supercharged E46 M3. Both cars have 6-speed manual transmissions so this is not a race won by a transmission advantage. The S54 inline-6 in the E46 M3 and the S65 V8 in the E90 M3 are both on stock internals and factory compression. The E46 M3 is a Maximum PSI Stage II turbo which we have seen hit 697 wheel horsepower. Additionally, the kit has gone 10.8 @ 131 in the 1/4 mile. The car belongs to our friend over at MPACT. Now from what BimmerBoost has been told MS109 fuel was not available for this run so boost is closer to the Stage I Maximum PSI kit and considering the result that makes sense. The E92 M3 has the Active Autowerke Gen 2 Level III supercharger kit which includes methanol injection and has put down in the 590 wheel horsepower range with simply the best looking torque curve in the industry. Now this kit was tuned by Frank Smith at TTFS so it is safe to say it is making a bit more than the base AA tune. The video quality is not the best partially due to the night time run but it is easy to see what happens. The E46 M3 hits a bit of lag and the E92 M3 pulls on the shift. It then continues a steady pull and the run just really isn't close. The E46 M3 of course would be stronger with more boost but the same could be said about the S65 as well. This will not be the last battle between the E46 and E9X. That fight is about to become full scale war with more built motor S65's hitting the streets.

    So I had an idea for you high stall Lvl 10 Torque converter guys. What if Terry set JB4 two step to 3750 rpm for automatic trans. Would this help you guys build more boost off the line for 1/4 mile.... Just a thought seems pretty obvious but I couldnt find anything about it.

    Modernfuse started a thread AFE intake issue in N54
    Hey peeps, Popped the hood the other day after having an issue during a run where I lost some power in the middle of the run, that turned out to be vacuum hose issues that I have now resolved. Those bad boys were got sucked shut with too much heat apparently so I have wrapped some good, thick stuff with Thermo-Flex and see how it works. Before I was able to do this though I found that my AFE Magnum FORCE Stage-2 Pro Intake had started to collapse on one of the intake ports at the filter connection. Has anyone else seen this happen?

    quattr0 started a thread General: 1 week old m4 notes in 4 Series and M4
    1. Fscking love it! Or perhaps just simply missed the experience of reving up a bit in 1st, let the clutch go and it would jump like a fox! 2. There is a surprised litto neck-snapped-back feeling and big fake exhaust note between 4k and 5k rpm. Can't wait until the car will pass 1200 miles and hopefully could put smiles on my face when deeping into 5 to 7k rpm. 3. There is nothing wrong w electronic steering on f82 4. Gas mileage is 17mpg mostly city and sport plus setting 100% 5. Exhaust note thru speakers doesn't bother me 6. I feel 3rd a bit snappier, is that a word?, on FBO n54 . 5th and 6th feels stronger on f82. Or perhaps its just the map Josh gave me on the n54. 7. If u have a really fast n54 u prolly wont miss much straightline and driving around town. I bought the f82 simply because I've missed manual and the good looking interior including the screen. I still enjoy my FBO n54 and nothing is wrong w it (ok I lied a bit no LSD nor carbon fiber shaft) 8. Back tires still pin a bit when turning left and go WOT (below 5k rpm) in f82

    Mercedes-AMG just upped the ante in the performance SUV game big time. BenzBoost speculated late last year that with the upcoming GLC (what used to be the GLK) and the introduction of the GLA that there is now room for an AMG model. Especially considering that the GLA45 AMG exists. Well, Mercedes-AMG had a similar line of thinking and decided to blow everyone away by putting the M177 V8 under the hood as reports earlier in the year stated they would. The GLC63 AMG will follow the new Mercedes SUV naming scheme which means a GL prefix followed but the chassis it is based on in this case the C-Class. Essentially, this is the new GLK. Let's focus on what is really important and that being the M177 V8 under the hood. This motor will go in the W205 C63 AMG and will be shared with the GLC63 AMG. Power and torque outputs are likely to also be shared which means 469 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque. This easily eclipses the Porsche Macan Turbo. There is even a chance of a GLC63 AMG S model with 510 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque putting the GLC63 AMG in truly unrivaled territory. This is potentially the king of the performance SUV crop at least from a power to weight and tuning perspective. Way to step up your game Mercedes-AMG.

    Mercedes-AMG feels like the only kid in the room without a shiny new toy. BMW of course has Motorrad which is their motorcycle division. Audi who seems to have some kind of inferiority complex when it comes to BMW asked their parents at Volkswagen if they could have a motorcycle division too since BMW had one. Since Audi was behaving itself VW bought them Ducati. Well, now Mercedes apparently wants a motorcycle division too. AMG was reported as being in the running for Ducati but that may have been a ploy just to drive up the price for Audi. Daimler is prepared to acquire 25%+ of MV Agusta for Mercedes-AMG which is the most logical division for the motorcycle manufacturer to go to. Daimler is changing things up a bit and there will now be three Mercedes car divisions and since Mercedes-AMG will deal with performance high performance sport bikes will also be a part of their portfolio. That is of course if the deal goes through. Reports are that talks are at an advanced stage. So advanced that this deal may be finalized next week. Daimler and MV Agusta are not commenting on the speculation. Source

    It almost seems like you have to have well over 1000 whp in the GTR world these days to even be remotely competitive. Switzer just showed an absurd 1400 at all four wheels on a Dynojet with their E1K-X GTR package. To put that power in perspective it is more than three times the stock wheel horsepower overlaid on the dyno graph. The stock curve is overshadowed to such a degree it is simply absurd. Not to mention Switzer is revving out an additional 1500 rpm which makes for a much wider power curve and big top end gains. Impressive numbers right? This type of power does not come cheap. The crazy thing is, Switzer offers a step above this as well: E1K-X SPI E1K-X Turbos SPI E1K-X Cast Stainless Manifolds SPI E1K-X Turbo Oil and Coolant Lines SPI E1K-X Turbo/Downpipe Heat Shielding and Thermal Wrap SPI E1K-X High Pressure Wastegates SPI E1K-X Downpipes SPI Intake Manifold w/ 3rd Injection Rail System SPI High-Flow Intake Assembly SPI Race Intercoolers (incl. plumbing, couplings, and BOVs) SPI E1K-X High-Flow Fuel Injector Kit SPI E1K-X Fuel System Upgrades (Lines, Pumps, Fittings, Regulator) SPI E1K-X Boost Control Solenoid SPI E1K-X Cooling System Upgrade (+ Coolant drain & fill) SPI E1K-X Stage 4 Transmission Build SPI GR6 Transmission Cooling PKG SPI R1K-X Stage 2 VR38DETT Engine Build Switzer SS102 Lightweight Stainless Steel 102mm Sport Exhaust Syvecs S8 ECU Switzer R1K-X Calibration for Syvecs Switzer Tuned Transmission Control Unit and Diagnostic Cable $112,990.00 USD + Installation
