    Permanent AWD with fixed torque split. I believe it's 33% to the front, and 67% to the rear. In my opinion, this is proof that you don't need a complicated AWD system with 2-wheel drive mode.

    hello, since the NGK is out of stock in a lot of places, anyone use the Bosch ZR5TPP33S in the N54? It is the stock plug for the N55 and I have read in only one or two places that it is a direct fit in the N54. true?

    Such a tank of a car, a hiccup because of low 91 octane but never broke down! Resale values just went up!

    This above as the new hotsides are really in a league of their own. There is no doubt they are going to make well more power psi for psi and be a hell of a lot less strain on the engine in the process, more than likely they are well less exhaust backpressure at ~30+psi than the OE-style housings are at ~25psi.

    You can definitely get a lot more power with the newly released Rb's!

    HOLY CRAP, that's the biggest EFR available, 1000WHP here we come! I always said the supra community would drive development of the B58 platform because import guys always are willing to spend crazy money on cars unlike the BMW community. I personally prefer a bottom mounted turbo because I don't like the idea of bringing heat up higher in the engine bay than need be, the increased diificulties of having an air filter, and longer exhaust runners means more lag, but if this is what must be done to fit an EFR 9280 then it is what it is. Turbo blankets and heat wrap will help of course, but it's still not perfect heat insulation. Can this setup run an airfilter? I would hate to see particulate matter destroy the $1500 turbo, and mess up the engine. Plus I personally really hate filterless setups. On a side note the speedtech kit has a 9180 available which is a step down from the 9280, I do wonder if they could make the 9280 fit in a bottom mounted configuration though. All in all, good stuff doc race! Your kits are always really good quality in terms of fit and finish, and use of quality components.

    Come on, it's way more reliable than the N54 with less problems. The N54 throws a code if you look at it for too long.

    I think the Ferrari is sexier too and there is something about owning a Ferrari that nobody else can replicate but the McLaren is a technological tour de force. I'd have them both ideally.

    The APR Porsche onslaught continues! Remember, not too long ago APR announced they cracked Siemens SDI 21.X OBD-II port flashing meaning a physical unlock was not required. Now they are rolling out Porsche software tune after software tune with the 991.2 Turbo S being the latest Porsche recipient. The results are strong with APR being able to take the 991.2 Turbo from the 586 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque dyno measured baseline to 685 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque tune only on race gas. Graphs for E85 numbers are coming at a later date. You can read the details below as well as browse the various graphs based on octane, crank, and wheel output. Just another great APR Porsche tuning release. Product Page Product Page Product Page APR is pleased to present the ultimate engine control unit (ECU) upgrade for the 3.8T Turbo S engine! APR’s ECU Upgrades are the best dollar-per-horsepower modification one can make to the 3.8T Turbo S engine. The upgrades dramatically increase horsepower and torque, making for an exceptionally quicker and more exciting vehicle. This is made possible through APR’s optimization of the factory engine management system to take full advantage of the engine’s capabilities, without needing any end user adjustment. The software loads to the factory ECU through the OBD-II port, resulting in a clean and headache-free install. APR ECU Upgrade Stages APR’s ECU Upgrades support various octanes both with or without any hardware modifications. Each stage is fully compatible with an upgraded intake, intercooler, exhaust, or other minor bolt on modifications. Unlike many platforms, no “Stage 2” or additional software tweaks are required to properly utilize a high flow race DP exhaust system as the factory system poses minimal restriction. Porsche Mode Switching Each upgrade offers a host of improvements beyond power alone. Using Porsche’s Normal, Sport, and Sport Plus modes offers varying levels of output while retaining all of the unique characteristics present in each mode. Sport and Sport plus modes give you full power and torque. Normal mode give you modest increase over stock, but focuses on economy and comfort. We’ve optimized boost, fueling, ignition, cams, and more to achieve greater power and torque in all scenarios. Features In Sport Plus mode we’ve reduced turbo lag during reapplication of the throttle by building boost while off the throttle. We have linearized the pedal maps for a more predictable throttle response curve, which works exceptionally well on the track. We’ve enabled left foot braking, and brake boosting. The speed limiter has been removed. We’ve optimized the software to better handle larger wheels without excessive torque interventions. And finally we’ve inverted the start stop functionality so the vehicle starts with this feature disabled. Safety With many customers tracking their Porsche, safety is paramount in our calibration strategy. Through the use of extreme datalogging equipment and additional sensors, thermocouples, and transducers, our engineers were able to fully optimize the ECU for advanced safety routines. This includes implementing several routines not enabled from the factory. The entire thermal management system is optimized to reduce engine bay temperature, and reduce intake air temperature, while also implementing advanced protection routines to prevent oil temperature from achieving unsafe levels. The exhaust crackles disable when temperature thresholds are crossed, and are only enabled in sport mode. Next, we help protect the engine from LSPI by preventing the engine from being lugged out in tall gears. We also protect the turbo from damaging compressor surge, and add in turboshaft overspeed protection. We’ve enabled new temperature protection routines to prevent the engine, exhaust, and other components from overheating, and have implemented temperature management strategies that are fully mindful of the platform’s limited fueling capabilities. We’ve optimized the injection strategy to not only deliver a fatter torque curve and better spool, but to reduce the chances of knock, and torque dips. This is also achieved alongside per cylinder ignition advance and fuel trimming. APR Stage 1 ECU Upgrade The APR Stage 1 ECU Upgrade is the first step towards making more power! This simple upgrade requires no engine hardware modifications, and produces 623-672 HP with 621-648 FT-LBS of torque, depending on octane. Gains as high as 92-110 HP and 99-116 FT-LBS of torque are available throughout the power band. To get more power, the vehicle can be outfitted with an upgraded intake, cooling, or exhasut system.APR Stage 1 is available for 91 AKI, 93 AKI, 100 AKI, and 104 AKI fuel grades in North America, and 95 RON, 98 RON, 104 RON, and 108 RON in the Rest of the World. APR Stage 1+ ECU Upgrade The APR Stage 1+ ECU Upgrade is the next step towards making more power! This simple upgrade requires an upgraded intercooler system and no engine hardware modifications, and produces 642-685 HP with 623-650 FT-LBS of torque, depending on octane. Gains as high as 92-110 HP and 100-117 FT-LBS of torque are available throughout the power band. To get more power, the vehicle can be outfitted with an upgraded intake, or exhasut system. APR Stage 1 is available for 91 AKI, 93 AKI, 100 AKI, and 104 AKI fuel grades in North America, and 95 RON, 98 RON, 104 RON, and 108 RON in the Rest of the World.
