    Hot on the heels of MotorTrend's 2017 Best Driver's Car competition comes their World's Greatest Drag Race where they have the contestants face off in a straightline contest. They did make one change though by replacing the Miata (which had no chance) with a Tesla Model S P100D. Racing from a stop is the Tesla's game. It shows as it gets a lead off the launch with the 911 Turbo S hot on its heels. Surprisingly, nobody is able to pass the Tesla in time. It runs a 10.5 @ 125 (GPS time) in the 1/4 mile. This is what happens when you do not have a prepped strip or drag rubber for powerful RWD cars. The rest of the times are below in order of trap speed but as stated BoostAddict.com believes the Ferrari is a ringer based on real world results from owners.

    drepai started a thread 919WHP 6870 N54 in N54
    Saw this on Instagram, figured I'd share it here since it's a platform record as far as I know. Looks like a fully built MOTIV long block and a DOC Race 6870 tuned by EMP Tuning. A full graph/logs/specs would be cool.

    MotorTrend's Best Drier's Car competition is always interesting to watch. The videos are well done and they provide plenty of data. The field they choose is not always the most logical though. What the hell is a Lexus LC500 doing in this competition? Also, why is there no BMW? That omission may be BMW's fault more than that of anyone else. Just taking up space that could be used for a serious entry. Regardless, it is a pretty good lineup with all eyes on the 488 GTB. Let's list the entries in order of curb weight from lightest to heaviest: Mazda MX-5 Miata RF - 2420 lbs Porsche 718 Cayman S - 3190 lbs McLaren 570GT - 3346 lbs Ferrari 488 GTB - 3412 lbs Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport - 3464 lbs Porsche 911 Turbo S - 3557 lbs Mercedes-AMG GT R - 3680 lbs Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio- 3749 lbs Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE - 3837 lbs Nissan GT-R NISMO - 3904 lbs Aston Martin DB11 - 4194 lbs Lexus LC 500 - 4364 lbs The Miata undercuts the field considerably and the Lexus LC500 almost weighs 2000 pounds more than the Miata. Wow is it fat. This competition is about what is the most fun to drive but it is always interesting to see which car is the fastest. They are listed below in order of their trap speed and with additional data panels: The Ferrari is the fastest? That is a load of BS. Either Ferrari sent a ringer or MotorTrend is cooking the numbers. There are plenty of videos out there showing the McLaren 570S dispatch the 488 with ease. This alone calls into question the validity of the comparison. Regardless, here are the cars in order of their laptime around Laguna Seca: Ferrari 488 GTB - 1:31.68 Mercedes-AMG GT R - 1.33.01 Porsche 911 Turbo S - 1:33.21 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE - 1:34.30 McLaren 570GT - 1:34.87 Nissan GT-R NISMO - 1:35.01 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport - 1:36.02 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio- 1:39.65 Porsche 718 Cayman S - 1:40.05 Aston Martin DB11 - 1:40.05 Lexus LC 500 - 1:43.40 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF - 1:51.43 The 488 GTB which trails the AMG GT R on the Nurburgring considerably opens up a large lead on the AMG GT R at Laguna Seca? Something doesn't smell right here. MotorTrend chooses the 488 GTB as the best driver's car but it does not feel right. The Ferrari dominates all the performance categories along with the subjective ones. If one were to guess, Ferrari provided the car only if they got this outcome as they have previously controlled MotorTrend's testing. BoostAddict doesn't buy the result and neither should you. Watch the videos from the cars below and come to your own conclusion.

    Brief intro: My name is Alex and I'm the former Senior Editor & Photographer of European Car Magazine. I've been in the automotive media industry and car scene for over 15 years. You can even find my last E46 M3 on the cover of the mag, if that's any indication of the care and attention I give to my cars. I've had this 335i longer than any other car and it's undoubtedly been my favorite "do-it-all" vehicle. It's been my only car, my daily driver, my weekend canyon ripper and road tripper. I purchased it with 72k on the clock and have happily driven it to its current 109,xxx. This E90 needs NOTHING. It has been meticulously maintained. Everything that might go wrong or need replacing with an N54-powered car, has been addressed. It drives and sounds like a dream, has the updated LCI MTech rear trunk, tails, bumper and MTech front bumper along with an aggressive and uncommon (on a non-M) wheel/tire combo, running meaty 265/35 tires at all four corners. This car is geared to an enthusiast and is a seriously awesome daily driver, equally happy staying as-is, or ready to be taken to the next level with big engine modifications, a diff, you name it. If big power is your goal, you couldn't ask for a better E90 to start with, since everything else is done for you already. I really do hope this goes to a good home. Message me if you'd like to come take a look or have any other questions. Onto the details: ____________________________ Year: 2007 Model: E90 335i 6MT Color: Sparkling Graphite Metallic on Dakota Brown Leather Packages: All of them (Nav, sport seats, heated seats, sunroof, folding rear) Miles: 109,xxx Price: $15,000 Maintenance: - Turbos and HPFP replaced by BMW @ 82k - Walnut Blast done @ 80k - New valve cover & gasket @ 100k - Oil filter housing gasket @ 90k - Rear main seal done @ 105k (wasn't leaking, precautionary maint. during clutch install) - Both VANOS solenoids replaced @100k - New NGK plugs @105k Engine: Macht Schnell downpipes with COBB exhaust (current on SMOG) MHD Stage 1 flash, but happy to flash back to stock if you'd prefer Red Line 5w40 euro, every 5k Suspension: M3 front upper and lower control arms M3 rear guide rods and tension arms ST Coilovers with upgraded KW Clubsport Camber Plates & Springs PowerFlex "Street" front/rear diff bushings PowerFlex "Street" front/rear subframe bushings Cobb Front & Rear swaybars Drivetrain: (all upgrades installed @ 104k) MFactory stainless flywheel with 335is / 550i clutch kit UUC Evo 3 SSK shifter with DSSR 335is motor mounts and E46 M3 trans mounts Red Line D4 ATF trans fluid, no grinds ever, shifts like a dream Wheels & Tires: APEX ARC-8, anthracite, 18x9.5 +35 all around Bridgestone RE-71R 265/35/18 Macht Schnell Stud Conversion Macht Schnell 10mm front / rear spacers Brakes: StopTech slotted rotors front / rear Hawk HP 5.0+ pads front / rear StopTech fluid Interior: Coby Wheel alcantara wrapped sport steering wheel M3 wheel trim ZHP weighted shift knob Exterior: LCI updated rear with E90 M3 rear trunk & spoiler, MTech rear bumper MTech pre-LCI front bumper, color cleared and restored headlights Llumar AIR Ceramic window tint 35% all around Smoked side markers Shadowline window trim

    Everyone calm down. This is a rumor although it comes from Edo Karabegovic (of German tuner Edo Performance) who was at the 'Ring during the record attempt. If what he is saying is true, we have a new Nurburgring champion. A 6:48.75 laptime would comfortably top the controversial Lamborghini Huracan Performante time of 6:52.01. How much stock do you put in a Facebook post? We are waiting for official word from Porsche. If it is true, the 991.2 GT2 RS is the new king.

    The concept of this manifold has been on my mind for over 3 years now. I designed/machined the first of these o-ring sealed, direct connect ITB couplers in 2015, in attempts to fab a welded tube runner/sheet plenum manifold for an inhouse project. Fitment and my abilities then could not bring it to fruition, FINALLY the holds have been removed, and the Fab Factory S54 ITB - FULL BILLET - intake manifold is here! Manifold will be available in a few different versions: 1) OEM/NA fitment - will include/incorporate factory MAF and PCV connections ** A full intake can be included at additional cost. E46 S54 & Z3M S54 fitment 2) HPF replacement - connections mirroring the old HPF manifold - ICV/meth/IAT 3) Boost/Turbo - for custom turbo setups 4) 12 Injector ** All manifolds will include 1/8" NPT tapped and plugged ports on each runner for port nitrous or port methanol injection ** Retail pricing for turbo applications will start @ $1,995.00, NA applications @ $2,195.00 First manifolds will be available in approx. 3 weeks. I will be accepting preorders NOW @ presale pricing starting at $1,795.00 In order to take advantage of presale pricing, you must email me directly, Shawn@Fab-Factory.com and finalize details of your manifold before 10/13 (3 weeks from today). Payment will not be required until your manifold is ready to ship! And now the goods ...

    So the pump has 3 fittings? Inlet from reservoir, outlet to oil pan, and a breather to crank case? Do you have the part number of the pump? And do you know if it can be ran dry? I am interested for a separate project.
