    I stand corrected. Even with that, they do not produce enough cars to move the needle on overall car sales.

    There has always been a manual transmission car in my garage, and it can be fun for a...

    A few random facts I want to throw out:

    It has been over 10 years since a car (911) was the top produced model at P.
    SUVs now comprise 64% of their production, with the 911 in 3rd place with only...

    Porsche sells about 225,000 total cars per year, while BMW produces 2 million (excluding Mini and motorcycles).

    Every car that Porsche produces amount to just over 11% of BMW production.

    I pulled up a log and can see where Fuel pressure requested is right at 3,000 psi during a pull. That is with Cobb stage 2. Pretty sure that going to 4,000 would only be a 33% increase. Not sure...

    You ran an 11.1 while throwing 4 tenths out the window in the first 60'.

    Dale Earnhardt was once asked why he still drove for Richard Chidress when he had several teams of his own, he said that...

    Sticky, now that you mention your M3, did you trade it or sell it? Does Gintani still have it?

    Now that it has been settled, and DCT conversions are passe, how hard will it be to swap in the new 8sp auto on a 335i? I know the bellhousing is the same, what kind of controller do they need and...

    The torque curve can be kept flat with progressive boost, but how it got to 700lb/ft by 3,200 rpm is the trick.

    One of things that I usually look for is how quickly a set-up can achieve 300lb/ft...

    To be clear, my comment was not intending to question the validity of the video or power figures, it was just questioning what was necessary to achieve those figures.

    That torque graph crushes...

    I would LOVE for that graph to be achieved 100% legit, but my bull$#@! detector is pegged. It is not the horsepower or torque, but the spool that does not seem to make conventional sense,...

    Yea, I have never seen anything like that out of a single, much less a 6466. Was there any N2O or trickery in play to get that spool?

    It's a turbo car with water injection, just add a few pounds of boost

    The physical damage does not look bad, the electronics damage could be much worse.

    The WRX barely made the list and they sell for 93.8% of new after 1 year. The 3 Series took a beating, topped the list and lost 18% of new on resale after one year.

    I think the "not shifting" behavior is intended. Say you are driving sportingly and you have to "pedal" the car to regain traction, this will allow you a few seconds to recover without having to...

    So you are saying that there is NO sport mode at all? What you describe is normal for M mode, where it will only shift automatically when you reach redline or go below the minimum speed determined...

    I reversed the two RPM values, but am otherwise right. The 335is is 5k and the 135 is ~3,500rpm. I hear that the 5,000 just blows off the tires when you are FBO and the 135 flash works much better...

    I think the non-M cars only have 2 options right now, the 135 flash with 5,000rpm launch or the 335is flash that leaves at around 3,500.

    I was looking at the M4 guys and it is an art to get a decent 60' time, and they have the ability to adjust the RPM of the LC. Not sure what the secret is, but it is not as simple as it sounds.

    Since my car is 95% daily driver, I am looking hard at the DCT conversion. The hurdle is the price of conversion (including the drive shaft, pumpkin and axles) then you have to save some more money...

    I would love to see a dyno of this.

    What exactly do you mean by "makes boost" by 3700rpm?

    The 6062-G2 incorporates their latest technology and is supposedly capable of 750hp. It should provide better spool and response than the larger single offerings, something that the twins have...
