I see what you did there.

I can understand wanting to have all groups share one SUV platform to reduce costs in what is a large volume seller. I do not understand forcing Lamborghini to use a Porsche platform for the Huracan successor. Porsche and Lamborghini don't even make cars that are direct competitors.

This sounds like GM all over again, where Chevrolet, Pontiac and Buick had the same cars with slight differences in styling and interior equipment. "

" Hi friends

hope anybody out there, who can help me to fix my selfmade COBB map?!

I do actaully face, huge problems with the wgdc after spool, in the low rpm (3000-4200). It jumps from 30% to 50% back and forth. I made over 100 logs, to try to fix this problem, but unfortunately the result is not that good and im runing out of idea. Is there any easy way to calm down this WGDC oscillations? What i did up to now, is try to fix it by the WGDC (base) and playing around with the WGDC ceiling.

My actual mod is N55 COBB with stg1 turbo upgrade.

Is it possible that you can give me a hint, how i could solve this problem? It would be very great.... Im really lost. The car is going very well once im on rpm, also on the track i have no issues. Im reaching actually up to 19psi at 5300 rpm (post shift DCT). "

M30
I mean E30 off course. Argument stands.

DTM Regulations. All 3 competitors use a 90 degree 4L V8 by regulation.
BMW had to specially develop this P66 engine to be able to compete in DTM in 2012
You must be pleased to know that for 2016 DTM will switch to a 2L 4-cylinder turbo engine setup. "

So not really a fair comparison.

I agree for the most part but there are some well built LSX's or even BBC's that can rev past 8k with FI. However, to beat a high hp Lambo with RWD car, it is VERY VERY hard but not impossible IMO. Still, Lambos seems to be the best platform for high hp roll racing. "

How does this change the fact the engine is a naturally aspirated four-cylinder that comes under the hood of the E30 M3? Does the M4 DTM car use modified S55? No. Does the E30 M3 DTM car use a modified S14? Yes. "

It is a fun comparison, but on a track where the racecar lives the streetcar will most likely lose, even to a 30 year old racecar.

Man, that is pretty crazy how identical that is. I would think my turbo would spool a tad slower given the difference in sizing. 58vs64mm inducer is pretty big difference and should definitely have noticeable difference in spool.

I will say, I am just as surprised as you guys are. This kit has definitely exceeded my expectations in every way, I am very satisfied and happy with these results. "
