    • Rob Beck Upgraded Turbo 335 vs. bolt on Lamborghini Gallardo


      The 335 in this video belongs to BimmerBoost user LostMarine. The Gallardo belongs to BimmerBoost user Byzantine. The 335 has Rob Beck upgraded turbos (20 psi) and dynos around 480 whp. The 335 is running a JB3, helix FMIC, and 96 octane. The Gallardo has been lightened by about 200 pounds (it is a 2006 model) and has the LOC exhaust, EVOMS tune, and Fabspeed cat delete. We thank these two for making the trip to Bolivia to run the cars and show the result! Enjoy the video.

        Wow! Ridiculous video.

        Both are top notch! Gallardo's V10 is intoxicating but the sheer speed of your 335i is amazing as well!

        Hmmm what would that Gallardo typically trap with 460awhp and -200lbs of weight?

        You should do it now, so that we can all race Click here to enlarge As for winter, just take it easy, put all seasons on and leave all the traction systems on.

        I got 121 w/o launching and nailing only after the 60 foot mark. Maybe if I had an aggressive launch I'd pull 123-125? Who knows, we'll never find out from me because I'm not an advocate of launching hard in an AWD car.

        Gotcha, that's moving for sure starting at the 60' mark. I'd like to see you guys do a 20 - 140 roll, that's be interesting. From watching your other vids that initial jump you get is sick!

        Me too, I like to do low speed rolls because of the AWD and gearing. Alot of people like to assume I jump the gun on those honks, but the truth is, they amped throttle response up on my ECU tune, so the moment I tap that pedal, I am on it 100% whereas some cars I've been racing, for example the 997 Turbo, has slight turbo lag coupled with an auto tranny's lag.

        i can see why they would think that, but its def not true. if i thought there was anything not fair, i would have said it. Your opponent just cant make any mistakes or hesitation, any of that and its a whole lot of chasing needin to be done

        LM and Byz have the best attitude, from speaking with Dan via PM (Byz) I knew the guy was a true blue enthusiast. It's so common when you post a comparo vid that the peanut gallery always makes some silly comment about the runs, especially if they don't like the results or the car involved, good stuff LM and Byz.

        It's a real humbling experience to get left like that! I did a 40 roll with a bolt on stock motor LS1 Camaro *h/c/i* and from 2nd gear the car jumped sooo hard that it scared the $#@! out of me. The damn thing almost pulled the passenger front tire off the ground, he then preceded to pull NYC block lengths on me...LOL The car had to trap high 120's.

        Thanks Drew, I'm a big car guy, no matter what car I will give respect. I'm going to email Zim now even though I won't be back til September. Unless there's another ESS or Gitani E9X M3 in the area?

        I know exactly who you're referring to Click here to enlarge

        EDIT: Steve, where do you get your race fuel? EVOMS said they tuned me for race fuel as well, so I want to throw in a tank to see if it makes a difference. Is it Sunoco 100 or VP?

        its actually cam2 and im not to sure about its quality. its from a local gas station right across the bridge in PA. BattaM showed me where to get it.. I dont really trust it though. Your so close to E-town, you can get it from there, or i know i heard of lots of places up near you selling unleaded racefuel. ill do some searching for you. THAT would be a hell of a race Click here to enlarge

        Yeah, I've been trying to grab some race fuel to test out the tune to see if it is true that they tuned for that. I'm sure at most I'll only get another 0.1-0.2 seconds off my 60-130 time, but that's still something. I know E-Town has Sunoco 100 and it's most likely very fresh, so I'll go on in and give it a shot. A couple weeks ago, I was in some sketchy station in Long Island where they had Sunoco 100 and I pumped it into a couple jugs and went home to test it out and the times were about the same or 0.1 sec slower. But I think it's the gas has been sitting there for a while and probably lost some of its rating.

        yea, get it from e-town if its close. i think i want to try times on both, pump/meth and race/meth, since my timing was essentially identical on both. glad to see you can access this place BTW Click here to enlarge
