No it's because you're telling people what you think they should be able to debate regarding M engine topics.

I'll sit here and talk M motors until my fingers fall off if I feel like it and anyone else can if they want to as well, thanks. "

I've been reading a lot about welding and manifold fabrication lately, there's so many different opinions, information that completely contradicts others

lots of sources say 'woo thick 304!' others say 'woo thicker 304!' and others, 'it's too stiff and that's bad! it needs some flex!' most say 'shit yeah 321!', but there's no real consensus on any of it, or a why... or when to use what.

about the only real consensus is it doesn't really matter anywhere what's used post turbo haha. "

" Damn, I live like 5 minutes away from this D-Bag, or I should say I live 5 minutes from his parents house... If anybody needs some local help contacting or researching this guy, let me know. I'd be happy to go knock on a door with some questions. Hell, I'd even ask his parents if they know he's defrauding people from their house. "

leveraged sellout replied to the thread 2015 Porsche 981 Cayman GT4 spotted testing with 3.8 liter twin turbo flat-6 power?.
" Hmm....I don't know. I still think it will get the X50'd 3.8 DFI....that would be the absolute perfect power plant for this car. Rock solid, reliable, 431 hp is plenty, it'll fit just fine, it wouldn't present any problems, and in a potentially lighter and more aggressive version of the GTS with more tire and downforce...it would be a serious weapon. And it wouldn't cost them anything to develop. "

" WOW! This is an ambitious Project...

Look here in this video, it is from a guy from Hungary who put an V12 M275 in an old S-Class W140 and burning some serious rubber : Maybe he can help you with your project.

Mthis replied to the thread 5soko || Evolve Tune.. Its the truth! V10 Beast.
" [QUOTE=5soko;580976]Hey brothas! So after months, actually almost a year, of putting off getting tuned, i finally gave it a shot.. Im not here to knock on anyone or company, or give false praises where they arent due. Im a forum enthusiast, love my car, and i think alot of people on this forum know me by now, im straight with my answers and thoughts. I want to be as honest as possible in my review, i dont want to sugar coat anything.


Coming from a fully modded 335, being basically stock was getting boring to me, even tho the car is fast stock!
Ive been researching and talking to fellow members about tunes, taking test drives, and all that good stuff.. Which tune to get?? Is it really worth it? Will i actually feel anything?All these questions kept popping in my mind and mostly what i kept asking members and researching etc.

In my N54 335 days, i was heavily involved in tuning and was one of the first ever guys to run a jb4 when terry and burger tuning first ever started and opened their doors.. I did alot of beta testing and logging for years for Terry.. Was alot of fun and i learned alot about engine tuning during the time.. Consistency, timing drops, boost response and spool, etc


Not all tunes are the same (choosing my tune) "
