True. I'm hoping it won't be this time. Otherwise yeah a boosted GT3 would be probably the most fun you could have with 4 wheels. "

The M235i is artificially limited by BMW, we know this. They charge you to unlock it (only to a degree) with their M Performance Parts.

The CLA45 AMG is probably not going to be nearly as much fun to drive but it's a hell of a drag racer with the all wheel drive and DCT. I prefer its styling as it is more progressive but this is as subjective point.
I'll say this, I far prefer it with either the Night Styling package or the carbon fiber package, as all that silver trim looks a little cheap to me. Also I hate the way the black wheels look with the polished lip...for some reason they look very cheap. With the red paint, it just screams to be looked at, and not in a good way. Now, in that nice purple with some black trim, that would look nice. "

Um it's an automatic filter you can disable in your settings. If you think I care or want to spend the time manually editing out profanity from peoples posts you're fucking kidding yourself. "

With the old ones it was, well not easy but you had a good place to start with that engine. Not sure how it would work with these, probably easier to just swap a turbo engine into one. I'm sure there will be a GT2 which will be pretty much this car with turbos. For people that don't fear death. Although the new chassis seems to be so well-behaved that's probably not true anymore.

leveraged sellout replied to the thread Article: So remember how the new 2015 F80 M3 was supposed to be much lighter than the E90 M3? It isn't. Curb weight measured at 3562 pounds.

Close to the point where how much fuel you have in the tank sways the results.
Yeah I meant standard M3 definitely not the GTS. But yeah I am pretty shocked by this...even dry weight I would think would not get you to 3306 from 356x. Ceramic brakes would help, might be worth 40-45 pounds. Still...seems too high. Fuel definitely skews the results. "

I haven't seen any turbo upgraded SL's either which is weird.

Considering the trap speed I'm guessing this is just a modified OEM turbo. "

bradsm87 replied to the thread Another single kit in the works..
" The reason for the timing is due to a number of factors. Mainly due to turbos being pushed outside their efficiency range, generating a lot of heat, high compression ratio for a turbo motor and small bore. The last 2 factors mean MBT occurs at a lot lower timing advance. The first two mean detonation is a lot more likely to occur than other setups. "

I don't know where you heard that from as my car's idle control valve failed and needs to be replaced.

We will see what is actually runs when they replace it hopefully tomorrow. "

I see on the 2nd WOT run after you 1st hit 6000+ rpms then took your foot off and accelerated again you get the same thing

is that "rich" running due to a fueling problem or a conversative tune or is it just normal ?
Got feedback from Mitch at Cobb, he thinks its a bit odd and that I need to check for boost leaks. "

" ^ my exact thoughts. I really hope his engine is ok and that blown n54's with singles don't become commonplace. IMHO, nobody should get into boost with a new setup, before a qualified EFI tuner has some time with it. One of the first of my honda friends, back in 2005, to jump on the turbo bandwagon after I had made 300whp on a stock dohc 1.6L(b16a), cracked all 4 pistons on a honda b20b during his first pull. I told him to NOT DRIVE IT, until I had reprogrammed his ECU. He learned the hard way. Thankfully, the VC breather isn't anywhere near the turbo/manifold on a B-Series. My brother almost burnt his SR20 240sx to the ground, when he cracked a ring land and blew oil out of the breather all over the turbo/manifold. Thank god he had a bottle of iced tea and that was enough to put out the flames. Blowby out of the VC breather while under boost = cracked/burned pistons. "
