Well I mean BMW's engineers today just try to make the car last the warranty period. Is that good engineering? The M10 block is probably a better turbo candidate than any current BMW block. The new BMW blocks are lighter but which is more impressively engineered?

I think your statement really depends on application. "

" Hey all,

Thought I'd post some recent stuff on the LPFP front for those that are interested.

I have a few things I'm working on right now...two in particular.

The first one is an F series bucket I got with a DOA (to me) pump.

I rebuilt the bucket and put in a 450 E85 certified pump and have flow tested it. "

I actually gave up the NT555 for PSS tires, and the PSS are about done for on the rears. I like the PSS, havent really put them to use on the track yet, the times I visited the strip with them the track was shit prepped, so I never really got to really test them out, However for rolls, and wet roads they gripped damn well. Most important though the "ride comfort" is the best expereince I have ever had with a tire "

Well that's less exciting. Probably cats were starting to fail, and rather than deal with replacing them under warranty (emissions components have longer warranties, 8 years/80k miles) they just "updated" the software. Although it's kinda odd they'd do major changes to the code... "

Like John Force? LMAO! There are cars that have 1000whp there. I just pick wisely. Do you have any clue what a FBO 5.0 coyote runs? Try low 11s@ 120-122mph. "

This could be an interesting development, but I doubt it.
