    Doc Race made waves with their BMW N54 single turbo kit released early this year. The N54 community reception was positive and thus far there is nothing but praise for the product. Doc Race is expanding their N54 offering which will included ported headwork and an upgraded intake manifold. Dyno results and specifications for the ported N54 head will come. For now, there are more concrete details on the intake manifold. This is more of a modification for someone already pushing high numbers and looking for a stronger and more efficient piece. They did get it on the dyno and it is more efficient than the factory design: Certainly great news and an exciting time in the N54 tuning world especially for guys pushing the limits.

    After a bunch of teasers, spyphotos, etc., it's finally here! The highest performance Mercedes-AMG in the lineup is the 2018 AMG GT R. The car receives significant revisions including new active aerodynamics, engine changes, software changes, new brakes, new wheels, new tires, and just about everything that could be changed was changed. Mercedes-AMG unveiled the car today at the Goodwood Festival of Speed as they promised they would. You can watch the whole impressive unveiling event where they bring the car in with a helicopter from the Mercedes-Benz Youtube channel which is posted below. Overall, the car looks absolutely fantastic but this vehicle is about performance and not looks. The engine receives higher compression pistons and new turbochargers. Whomever it was that said they would just change the tuning software was wrong. Very, very, very wrong. The compression is bumped from the M177 10.5:1 but Mercedes-AMG has not yet posted the full specifications so we do not know the new ratio. Regardless, 577 horsepower is now the power output and it is sent to through an even quicker shifting dual clutch transmission. There are weight saving measures such as a lighter flywheel, a new exhaust that weighs 13 pounds less, and carbon fiber pieces abound. No word yet on the curb weight. This is the new king of the Mercedes-AMG lineup and it will go toe to toe with the Porsche GT3 RS or Turbo S and possibly encroach on 488 GTB territory. We can't wait to see it in action.

    threetirtyfive started a thread E90,E91,E92,E93: E92 engine bay inner covers in 3 Series and M3
    Hi guys can anyone tell me what cover is missing from the right hand side (NSF) inner engine bay (next to the wheel arch)? It looks like there should be a silver piece of trim OR a plastic inner wheel arch cover- although those appear present, just not over these holes that expose the engine bay to the wheel. See attached Thanks!

    Hi guys, I just finished getting a pro Tune using the cobb platform on my n55 xdrive with newly installed pure turbos stage 2. Other mods include cobb fmic, cobb catted downpipe, charge pipe and afe dry air filter. New spark plugs in. Running 94 gas - petro Canada. Reviewing the attached dyno the results look a little strange to me. At higher rpm it starts to go all over the place. Is this normal? I did feel some stuttering at higher rpm when I was testing out the pro Tune. The pro tuner also advised of this. I may need to go back to him to review it over. Last point I have a catted downpipe and I did read on here that this can be an issue on the turbos. Any tips or advise to avoid any issues please share. Thanks guys

    Naturally aspirated engine versus naturally aspirated engine although the GT3 RS motor is much smaller at 4.0 liters compared to the 5.2 liter V10 in the Huracan. The GT3 RS obviously is not a car designed for acceleration sprints but for the track. It still manages to impress with its straightline speed however. The standard 991 GT3 loses to the Nissan GTR as well as the Mercedes-AMG GT S. The GT3 RS seems to be much quicker though as it beat a Nissan GTR from a stop. How does it fare against the 600 horsepower Huracan which features rear wheel drive unlike the standard Huracan? The GT3 RS jumps in the first run and holds off the Huracan for a while until it comes roaring back up top. The Huracan is clearly stronger. They run again with a closer start although the GT3 RS against goes early. The Huracan pulls much more quickly this time. Camera angles from both cars are shown which is great to see. The rear wheel drive Huracan is impressive.

    Kish2604 started a thread Meth system capabilities in N54
    Hi everyone... I need some specific meth system advice on a DIY project, I am planning to run a direct port methanol system utilizing the ffg components from my existing set up, my concern is, will the coolingmist pump be able to supply sufficient volume and pressure to a rail of 6 x cm3 nozzles in a port spacer and a single cm5 retained in the charge pipe for iat suppression? I am planning to T the line of with 1 going to the Cp nozzle and the other to the rail after the solenoid. The rail will have a check valve to prevent siphoning from the injectors. If the single pump isn't sufficient should I run each system independently or can I connect a pump inline with the normal one to act as a booster? All suggestions welcome...

    The issue you would have with a catted dp is the cat may melt. I believe there was one person that fried a stage 2 while running a cat, but it may have been other problems. On pump gas you will probably be fine. As for the dyno graph, it looks pretty bad. I would have expected 450whp, so you are close. Also, the peaks like that are normally boost spikes. Do you have a log of the run to post up? I would definitely get with the tuner because something is not right.

    Or just drive the tank until it's mostly empty but stay out of the throttle.

    It's a little after 9pm on a Friday evening, and we're just finishing up some next level type prototype work at VPG. First, the disclaimers; don't ask me details because we aren't ready to share too much. Also, this is a ways out from production capability. There is a lot of work to be done. That said, we're still showing it because it gives you a glimpse of what we've got our dirty, dirty paws into... and it's awesome. See below for DI only, no port injection, no methanol injection, no bandaids, no problem. Look at it!

    Meth is no issue on the platform. I'd be concerned about the trans way more than meth.
