    • Weistec officially entering the BMW tuning game with an F10 M5 S63TU turbo upgrade

      This is just the beginning. Weistec is expanding its reach into other markets which is a great thing for BMW enthusiasts (as well as those of another make which will be announced at a later date).


      BimmerBoost knew about this for a while but Weistec was not ready to reveal their entry into the BMW aftermarket until significant development took place.

      Their first upgrade will be for the F10 M5 and F13 M6 models. They will offer a full S63TU turbo upgrade and you can logically deduce they will be working on the F90 M5 afterwards.

      You can see their (very expensive!) 3d imaging scanner at work as they map out the engine bay and parts. We're talking about a piece of equipment that can range up to $85k. This is what top engineering firms use.

      Get ready for some exciting BMW developments from Weistec.

        From how I've seen Weistec price their turbo upgrades, I'm genuinely curious to see what they offer to compete with the stock housing upgrades that are available today.

        You'll love the power until it's time to put it down.

        I'm surprised people are upgrading turbos on these cars, we are starting to see where rods bend and it can be done with stock turbos

        Is it? I mean you have to pay to play.

        It doesn't really make sense to say you're wondering why people are upgrading their turbos when engine upgrades come with the territory when you want to make big power.

        Ccool, can't wait to see pricing/performance. I think Weistec is smart to go after F10's first. That model is right in the sweet spot of it's life-cycle for this kind of option.

        I still want to see more for the N63TU, but perhaps Weistec's options will be able to cross-fit it ...

        Yes, Sticky - don't start that hand-waiving over huge costs by saying 'pay to play' - engine upgrade is a relatively huge financial plunge on ANY platform. M engines more so. And especially for the 99% of F10/F90 M5 owners who don't do their own rebuild labor.

        Those cars are expensive, and lots of people stretch to own their dream M5, leaving little appetitive for tens of thousands on engine rebuilds. And in reality - many of us have spouses that are a lot less understanding about ruining engines in expensive luxury cars we're making payments on, lol.

        My good friend just did a gtr build of motor only for 22,000, he was fbo e85 before that so thats about 45,000 total and no trans yet. An m5 would probably be about 10-15000 more than that, first problem is very limited options for now. Gtr has tons and tons of options to build the car. So to me 640ish whp at 23psi is huge fun for these cars, stack a jb4/meth stack and you can hit 700-750whp and 800+wtq @27psi, I would say thats for track days only. Now at these levels with traction we have to look at axels and the rest of the drive line. I personally would not drive my car around like that because you are asking for it. So to go bigger turbos you need a full build or its pointless imo, from stock i would say almost 75,000 for a 900ish whp

        It makes sense as they already have experience doing turbo upgrades of a similar style with AMG's.

        I don't know what you want me to say. Engines have limits and if you want more power and torque you have to build the motor.

        I don't see guys with Lambos or GTR's complaining about the cost of engine blocks or transmission upgrades. If you want to make big power reliably it comes with the territory.

        If you want big power on stock internals look into something other than a BMW. Even then, you will reach a limit.

        Why not ask Bimmer Performance Center? They build these motors all the time. @BPCMotorsports

        For a full S63 T/u build (top and bottom end work) you are looking at around 38K installed at our shop. Trans and turbo options are obviously more, it all depends on power goals.

        Power takes money, no other way around that. Some cars take more punishment on stock internals but at the end of the day, 1000 hp on any car is an expensive venture. You either pay up front in vehicle cost for high horsepower or you spend it later in mods and engine work. alot of people are so naive when it comes to power. "just throw a big single on a supra and boom, 4 digit power" yeah... just "throw" a turbo on it. People dont understand how expensive "throwing a turbo" really is.

        Ok well I don't want to build the motor but I want 1000 horsepower so just give me what I want for free.

        How about just rods and pistons?

        Does that include a core exchange of some sort?

        Exg taciting news for M5 owners. But, hp/tq is nothing without traction. No use in the wifey/gf having big ta-ta's if you can't touch them.
