    • PP-Performance tuned TT-RS vs. PP-Performance tuned Alpina B3

      We have two videos of runs between these two tuned cars which are very evenly matched. The TT-RS is claimed to have 450 hp and the Alpina B3 500 hp. The specs on the B3 are updgraded turbos, downpipe, intercooler, no cats, and PP-P tune. The TT-RS has no cats, aftermarket downpipe, and a PP-P tune as well.

        yes it was.. a little too even for a heavier, 50 hp disadvantaged car to be even, and even start to pull up top. id like more details

        The TT-RS is around 3200 pounds.

        It is a bit odd since it is sending that power to all 4 wheels.

        yea i was really surprised after reading the specs...

        the 335 has bigger turbos and a tune and still just kept up? i read the other bolt ons but still after just reading that and seeing the race i kinda got dissapointed. an inline 6 3.0L with 2 turbos not even stock ones (which are still reputable) kept up with a 5 cylinder 2.5L with one turbo. and not even a big turbo lol stock k04...

        The ttrs is really showing its colors. i cant wait for a BT upgrade for that. i'm sure it will be able to stand with some GTR's...

        3200 thats it? i thought they would weigh in about 4k. if thats true, then it makes a bit more sense i guess

        I would LOVE to own a TT-RS, especially in a snowy climate. To be honest, I think all the Alpina cars are over-rated, I wasn't expecting it to win.

        Well... According to PP performance website they only offer this tune for the N54 platform :
        BMW 335i / 135i to 410PS 560NM
        - Frontcatalics replacement tubes
        - Engine ECU OBD Programming
        - V-Max 310 limited electronically
        It doesnt state anywhere a Upgraded turbo concept. But maybe... Who knows.

        Yes, but in the video they state for this Alpina car the turbos were modified.

        if i recall, aplina doesnt modify the turbo's, but the inlet/outlet tubes. i recal searching for that info before, so i dont know, maybe they mean the tubes, as was copied from their site, and someone mistook it for modified turbo's?

        I think that is right.

        The guy who posted the video says both cars have modified turbos.

        yea, i think i looked at that before, since those tubes would be of benfit to someone like me.

        Either way, they wre flyin down the road
