    "My buddy has an EVO X, and I couldn't disagree more... "

    Well, my argument was based on the earlier Evo 8 and 9, lighter, quicker steering, manual transmission cars. The Evo 10 definitely has...

    But apparently again the Japanese win. I have owned and driven a lot of cars. The 2005 Mitsubishi Evo RS was so much better at turn in, steady state cornering, and even exiting than any other car I...
  3. S85: Powerchip is still in business? After everything...

    Powerchip is still in business? After everything that has gone not their way (innumerable race vids, cancelled dyno shootouts with lame excuses, etc?). Where do they get any money/business?

    Im okay with this moving to the S85 section, I just assumed I would get better responses (and I got some great ones!) by starting in the advanced tech section. Since most meth injection info comes...
  5. S85: Again, my whole point of injecting pre-compressor...

    Again, my whole point of injecting pre-compressor is not for the cooling, but to make the compresor more efficient. It is way too small for the V-10 (I have read quite a few posts complaining about...

    As a couple people already said, it seems like your flowing too fast through the condenser to give the water time to cool down. Only other option I can think of is a much larger double-pass...

    So, I believe that Devilsown has some of the best nozzles on the market with regard to atomization, and I am comfortable injecting pre-compressor with those. Plus, did I mention this thing gets HOT?...

    Sorry, edited and got a double-post!
  9. S85: Well, I'm going to do it anyway. The only places...

    Well, I'm going to do it anyway. The only places I have ever read that is quotes like this on message boards. All technical articles and information on manufacturers' websites I could find tend to...
  10. S85: Meth technical questions spray/inject before (pre) compressor - ESS E60 M5 VT1 supercharger kit limp mode

    I have an E60 M5 with an ESS VT1 (non-intercooled 5psi) supercharger. The supercharger is the Vortech V3Si, same as the M3 kits, so it is too small for the V-10 application. I plotted the engine at...

    S85: That sucks, the car has been beat to hell with...

    That sucks, the car has been beat to hell with what I would consider "regular use" in my area. I can flog the crap out of a car, as long as it has a good coat of wax it ends up ok. I really give...

    So.. what my take-home lesson is I think....
    Maha measures torque. The rest of the curves are calculations. The torque curve on the BMW shows turbos being maxed out, with torque peak at 3800-4200,...

    I love that people are cramming the S85 into all kinds of cars lately. E30, E36, Z4, etc. A perfect engine for just about anything, particularly lighter cars that can make Good use of the relatively...

    This is the kind of tuner behavior that makes everyone so interested in doing thing themselves, like when open source software came out for Subarus and Mitsubishis. If you know stuff and want to...

    So a label on a box of brake pads is considered an "internal document"? What I find problematic is this purported "M" car is going to have the same brakes as all of those other cars.
  17. What I find problematic is that nobody has posted...

    What I find problematic is that nobody has posted a single large turbo (gt35r or something) 335 or 135 making the kind of hp it should make. All this pissing and moaning makes the originator of this...

    What we need is a different term for "minimally difficult" upgrades. "bolt ons" is vague, and technically includes turbos, fuel pumps, and injectors even though it was originally intended to cover...

    BMW aiming for the "alternative lifestyle" buyer without a doubt.

    Ess has a tune for both the tranny and motor controls. Supposedly the ecu tune allows adjustment of LC rpm (I have not tried it, I use "mash and go"). Using one of the steering wheel buttons not...
