    Looks like they're using MHI manifolds, though. :D

    40340

    I'm gonna guess Borg Warner internals? The germans tend to like B-W.

    Keep in mind the R8 4.2 is really a competitor to the 997 C4(S). It came out in 2006, just as the insane German horsepower wars were starting. I wouldn't expect it to be competitive to any current...
  3. Cylinders that run hot often do so because they...

    Cylinders that run hot often do so because they are running lean, as is the case with the LSx engines. It is possible that #5 runs hot due to a coolant circulation design issue, or perhaps a hot...
  4. You'd have to do some seriously expensive...

    You'd have to do some seriously expensive instrumented tests to figure out exactly what's going on, but having one lean cylinder due to intake/exhaust design isn't uncommon. The LSx engines run lean...
  5. C7: If they're claiming 333 hp from the TFSI...

    If they're claiming 333 hp from the TFSI supercharged v6, that means they "comprehensively revised" the engine by installing the version that the S4 has used since 2009.
  6. And I recall reading an editorial last year in...

    And I recall reading an editorial last year in some automotive publication explaining why the Veyron SS would likely never be beaten in top speed. Just goes to show that automotive journalists don't...
  7. Right, but the Turbo is more of a daily usable GT...

    Right, but the Turbo is more of a daily usable GT car with a rear-engined architecture. The Huracan is a mid-engine, entry level supercar. While they're in the same price range, they aren't really in...

    :awesome:

    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...

    Typical VAG mismanagement. Or they're trying to buy out someone else.
  10. The SRT8 392 is actually 200 lbs. lighter than...

    The SRT8 392 is actually 200 lbs. lighter than you're quoting. Not sure where you got those numbers. Figure the Hellcat will be maybe 100 lbs. heavier from the supercharger and all that. The 392's...
  11. 981: I don't believe it. There are no indications of...

    I don't believe it. There are no indications of any way to feed intercoolers, or any additional cooling ducts to the engine bay. If the 3.8 turbo is the engine Porsche is using, it's not in that car.
  12. Keep in mind that the GT500 is probably about 500...

    Keep in mind that the GT500 is probably about 500 lbs. lighter than the Challenger. I'm not a Dodge fan, but of the big three retro styled muscle cars, I think the Challenger looks the best, sounds...
  13. The ratio of fiber to plastic, type of plastic,...

    The ratio of fiber to plastic, type of plastic, etc. has a huge influence on how the material behaves. Materials science has come a long way.
  14. Twin turbo plus MGU-H would be an expensive,...

    Twin turbo plus MGU-H would be an expensive, complex system, although I think one electric hybrid turbo with the right control strategy would eliminate any concerns of soft throttle response.
  15. It feels much more solid. The chassis is very...

    It feels much more solid. The chassis is very stiff and the steering is quick. It's a really fun car to drive.

    Subaru did opt to plumb a noise generator (a la BRZ) into the STi intake. It sounds...
  16. The new WRX/STi has a significantly better...

    The new WRX/STi has a significantly better interior than the previous generation. It's still no Porsche.
  17. That doesn't so much work with their AWD system...

    That doesn't so much work with their AWD system design, unfortunately.
  18. What kills the Audi, besides the fact that it's...

    What kills the Audi, besides the fact that it's using a 7 year old engine, is the fact that it weighs almost 500 lbs. more than the M4. That weight isn't all from the transfer case and front diff,...
  19. The rear looks pretty weird, and those wheels are...

    The rear looks pretty weird, and those wheels are way too big for that car. That said a new entry level Porsche sounds interesting.
  20. 991: It's hard to tell from that model, but it still...

    It's hard to tell from that model, but it still looks like it lacks the intercooler outlets in the rear bumper that would indicate it's actually turbocharged, similar to the spy shots posted earlier.
  21. General: GLB is a bad name, I think. The first thing that...

    GLB is a bad name, I think. The first thing that comes to mind when seeing that is GLBT...
  22. M157: Yeah, it looks like they're replacing the factory...

    Yeah, it looks like they're replacing the factory water/air heat exchanger with an a/c evaporator unit so the water gets cooled more than with just airflow. The chilled water goes back into the...

    As a former B5 S4 owner, I find Audi's turbo problems amusing. Makes me feel like there's a real link between the race cars and street cars. :lol:



    No plan survives contact with the enemy. I...

    According to that graph, it looks like they're revving it to 7200, and making significant gains up top.

    Just because the valve springs are rated for 10k doesn't mean the head will make power to...

    No, I'm saying it's terrible shop design if your techs have to drive a car out of the parking lot onto a public road in order to get into the shop. It also seems like a major liability issue,...
