    Not to jump into a conversation, but that 100lbs for 1mph rule generally applies to cars that weigh less than 3500lbs :) The M5 is a tank. You also have to take into account DA of the run and the...

    Oh and i forgot

    Step 6) Talk down to people who ask for help diagnosing a problem with your equipment. Assume they don't know more than you. If there's one small thing different about their...

    Agreed, the very non-linear nature of turbos makes them more difficult for which to tune. Even then, it's not THAT difficult. I think they either don't have full control over the DME or they go...

    What's the old saying about believing in your own grandeur? I think ESS and VF get enough adulation from their fans who don't understand that a centrifugal supercharger is by far the easiest most...

    Yeah I knew a long time ago that its the field I wanted to be a part of. I thoroughly enjoy the embedded development/design world. You get big exposure to a variety of disciplines and need to have...

    I've been saying this since about 8-9 months ago. I don't think ESS and VF know what they're doing, tuning-wise. They are in way over their heads. AMS has a certain goal in mind and they are used...

    I think the term 'tuning PID' depends on one's perspective. The algorithm itself isn't being tuned but the input values certainly are. From my perspective in the high-precision motor control world;...

    Pay special attention guys. I am a Computer Engineering grad which is generally a hybrid of Electrical Engineering and Software Engineering. I also had a lot of exposure to PID and double-PID in...

    I can't wait to see how the Dodson upgrade goes with this car. I've still yet to see any reviews of it from any car at all.

    Yeah it hurt my head reading that. Glad to see a real tuner come into the game. I've had this feeling that ESS, VF, and others really don't know what they're doing as far as tuning goes. Hopefully...

    Good luck. No one wanted to work with me either for my VF540 kit except one company (who shall remain nameless) that ended up taking 6 months to finally get me a tune that ended up being a canned VF...

    This is one of the major criticisms I've seen of GM about the Z/28. As good as it performs on the 'ring and in magazines; it doesn't qualify for any classes and so its not commonly professionally...

    I read another article mentioning that the 3.5L only shares the displacement with the 3.5L SHO motor. Everything else from the block, internals, heads, etc are all completely different and new....

    I've read they were targeting the GTE class and that this engine has a significant amount of testing and development in actual racing events; so it became a natural choice. I wish they had a TT...

    Ford just dropped the mic

    Oh my, it's got Pagani and Ferrari language all over it. Confirmed to have a >600hp TTV6 with DCT. The 3.5L V6 was used to target the GTE class of racing as they actually intend to race this car and...

    Come to think of it, the price of this crate engine kind of puts BMW's outlandish M engine pricing in perspective doesn't it?

    The tires themselves are great for a summer tire. I meant put a set of DRs or slicks or something on the car. The stock PSS tires are also narrow. My 335i ran those exact tires not making anywhere...

    Any underhood shots? Makes me wonder if they've been playing with a wastegate to raise the boost mid-rpm. There's a big lack of power in the centri-blower S65 mid-range compared to the top-end. If...

    Jeez, could one of these kids actually put a halfway decent set of tires on their car before going to the strip? Is it too expensive? Or is it too difficult for them to do?
