    theres a 2.5 up near kileen who's done some roll on damage before 80mph.
    ... and (to stay OT) the german 2jz is busting thru the 1000rwhp+ range, still think your open deck can catch up?
    N54 POWA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Catch up? Shouldn't you be saying S54 POWA!!!!!!!!!!!!!? Joke I guess.

    Are you assuming I think the N54 is superior to the S54? By the way, the 2JZGTE was finished up by GERMAN engineers, so not sure what you mean there either.......

    And yes, I still think the N54 is an awesome motor and will hit 1000+whp in the future.


    Anyway, that's still irrelevant. I said where I live, they would be SOL because everyone races from a dig. Try to beat a built Viper on the bottle, a built turbo 5.0 setup for drag or a WS6 Trans-Am with a 350shot of Nitrous and $10,000 in rear-end parts.

    Annihilation is what would happen. Frank with the Viper is probably the only one who would even care to roll race, and good luck with that!


    Also, have fun paying $49,000 for a turbo kit. Hope it comes with gold-plated internals.

    Everything on a supra is stout as hell even they need upgraded everything at 1000+whp. Driveshaft shop has 1200whp axles that they can make for any car. As for the tranny look up Jessica Barton, she drives a 1000whp Supra 6 speed into the 8's. Oh btw I need to get a hold of HPFChris to spend some $$!

    German 2jz? There's 2,000HP 2jz's so I think it'll be a while before the N54 gets there. Lol

    I don't really mean to come off rude, just was annoyed. And you are right, if they will pay it, they can charge it, and they have excellent engineering and one of the only options available so there isn't much you can do....

    Unless you do it yourself.

    The 2JZGTE was partially developed by Germans and that 2,000HP figure was on an engine dyno, not at the wheels.

    Nobody said a 1,000WHP N54 is going to pop up over night.

    Certain elements of the final design were handled by a German firm but the 2jz is Japanese without a doubt. Irrelevant really as there are several 1500+whp rb26's and even a 1776awhp RB26. These were engines that won't easily be equaled. And that 2300hp 2jz was on an engine dyno because they could keep the car strapped down.

    Or ever... but let's be positive. The best is yet to come especially with big singles.

    I think we'll see a 1000+whp S63 or N63 before we see the N54 get there.

    I would tend to agree and would add the S65 to the list if it was not constrained by superchargers.

    2JZ didn't make +1000whp from day one, or S54. How long did it take to achieve +1000whp with S54? 10 years.

    so give N54 some time to see it's best.

    The S54 made it before 10 years. 2011... car came out as a 2001 model here.

    It wouldnt be hard to fab up some small rear brakes on these cars so you can run a smaller wheel that will allow Slicks on it.... as soon as that happens it will be the end of the 11.0 curse

    Why BMW owners don't run bias-ply slicks is beyond me. I know that is my next drag tire...

    A lot of people don't know this, but Stoptech for a while was the brake company of choice because they were doing custom rear brake setups for many road racing programs. Since 75-80% of the braking was being done by the front end, huge rear brakes weren't necessary, and custom 11" or smaller rear brake setups were the norm.

    By my measurements, it's going to take something in the 280-310mm area for rotor size to properly fit a 15" rim. Say good-bye to your parking brake though.

    In contrast, F1 cars have a much more balanced braking system with up to 40% of the total braking being done by the rear wheels. (Depends on ballast distribution)

    Adam I find 300mm even fits most 15's well with a single piston caliper. Its all about caliper design as you're aware.

    Ok ok, so what's faster? An 800 RWHP M3 or an 1100 RWHP M3?

    Because its another set of wheels to have. Ive been talking to CCW and they lag responding. To fit bias ply I need to get rid of my front bbk, ive already gotten rid of my rear bbk to fit 17's. I want to put a set of 16's (trying to get ccw to make it for me) on the rear now and run an even larger radial drag tire for the street. Im not sure if i want to go through the hassle of getting skinnies made, take off the front bbk, find a set of stock brakes and have them put on for a day at the track.

    Seems like my comment hurt some feelings.... most neg rep I've ever got ha.

    I mean, are they going to use a 4508R for road racing? If they do then I am impressed, that will be a handful on the road course given the torque curve it's gonna make.

    I think HPF is a great company and this is gonna be a badass build, but this seems like a drag orientated turbo, and they are going to need some work to be competitive in street racing (unless from a high speed roll, which I already mentioned, don't know why people are getting butt-hurt....) or at an actual 1/4 track.

    I bet it would make one hell of a mile car too!

    A lot of people are running strange engineering brakes for the drag set ups these days....http://www.strangeengineering.net They'll do custom set ups.

    I concur. These are the brakes I'm getting for my drag RB25. Also check out aerospace components.

    I dont know about you guys but id take a set of slicks over street tires at the track any day of the week... For one, you ET better, 2 it actually hooks and 3 i have seen way more wrecks on street tires than i have on anything else.. 800whp on a set of street tires is asking for the ass to kick out on you @ 80mph+...




    And like i already said, That Tial housing is actually going to be a Restriction over 1000whp... We have already been down that road just not on a BMW...
