i'm pretty sure there's a great E85 related thread on GTRlife.. but i can't find it - http://www.skylinesaustralia.com/for...nd-oil-choice/ is the next best i think hah
It sounds like they're just arguing in circles on that thread....now i'm confused lol.

I don't *think* Xcess is ester based but I need to check, I won't pretend to be an oil expert.

Sounds like broadly speaking folks are going to thicker oil with ethanol, though my sample didn't indicate any substantial loss of lubrication quality or shearing. IDK I think i'll stay with with this current oil and OCI unless I see something troubling. If you feel differently let me know!! "

" Of course, i could go that way... but im looking more for some inputs, how it could be solved by doing it by myself. And perhaps other forum user would get e benefit of it as well...

Im not really fustrated, because the problem occures just if i pull the car from low rpm to redline It takes me just 5.5s from 62-111 mph, for a stage1 turbo, the car goes like hell. "

Are those bikes street legal? Obviously more than 425whp is possible but for a street bike just like a rwd car you approach a point of diminishing returns.

Agreed, i'm well aware of those builds. Nelsons motors often displace over 10.0 litres and are built for 1/4 mile so they're not built for insane top end runs. I remember LMR built that 2000+hp C6 a yr or two ago but it just couldn't put the power down on the road. I think it did beat a lambo or two the runway event it won though. "

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). "

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. "
