    Well, bench tuning, or more specifically, removing the DME is a daunting task on some of these new engines. But I bet someone will produce a remote mount to make this more easily available on the...

    Yes, the retrogressive regulations of most racing formulas (gotta love the NASCAR antique muscle car series, especially the ones that never existed!) are there to contain cost of development, but how...
  3. Perceptions Are Subjective!

    Internally, boosted engines are built differently than NA engines. One adds boost to them only at one's own risk.



    But still, when one looks at specific NA performance, their NA engines are...
  4. Efficiency = Power

    And Ferrari and Porsche don't? :confused: HP/torque per unit of combustion chamber volume? :facepalm

    There is a great thread in the E90 post section by BoostedIS on how he obtained much stronger axles.
  6. Thermal Efficiency

    A very basic understanding of physics will immediately reveal to you why the NA engine is dead as a thermally efficient engine design. :think:

    More undersquare is not encouraging. Probablpy smaller valves too. Funny, that specification was not mentioned.

    Very prescient, Sticky! Soon, NA will be far in the past like driver manually adjustable engine timing.

    Every combustion engine will be boosted and probably paired with electric motors, if not...

    A whole lot of black. Big in Europe maybe, but I think this car deserved a distinctive color.

    But original color is always the best choice, no matter what it is.

    Is it really up yet?

    I can't navigate to it.

    Ah, I see, it is under "Turbo Kits" :awesome:

    Do they really tap? Or were you attempting to describe the taper of the pipes? ;)

    It is for me. I don't have time to refill my tank every 200 miles. But if you have the Zonda and other toys, I guess you have the flunkies too.

    But also increase understeer, especially in high speed sweepers if spring and shock rates are unaltered.

    Funny AST and Moton go unmentioned. At least Öhlin is mentioned.
