    In less than a decade almost every Porsche in the lineup will be fully electric. It is a major change and one enthusiasts will struggle with. Tuning your car likely will become a thing of the past as companies are stepping up encryption and doing trial runs for preventing tuning now. The idea of getting into your EV Porsche and telling it the destination while you relax and check out sports or news sounds nice but if Porsche meets their goal the driving experience is going to be increasingly dialed out of the equation. Porsche EV timeline: 0.2% by 2019 1,2% by 2020 6.8% by 2021 17.73% by 2022 31.2% by 2023 54.9% by 2024 78.74% by 2025 91.3% by 2026 99.9% by 2027 99.96% by 2028 99.9892% by 2029 100% by 2030 The Germans as a whole have a goal by 2030 to phase out the internal combustion motor. Does this mean you will not be allowed to drive your classic 911 at track days? Drag race it? Modify it? Who knows what the future holds but the Germans are betting big on electric cars. Source

    Why would you run the Microsquirt rather than the Megasquirt? The micro seems very limited and only supports batch firing of the injectors? Did you eliminate that direct injection or are you saying you are using the microsquirt for aux port injection fueling and the stock DME for direct injections?

    If this is true Eric Holder has to go to prison. He already should be there but we all get why he isn't.

    Probably the PNC Bank news. First major US bank to join RippleNet. Close to taking over 2nd spot in marketcap from Ethereum.

    Devin Nunes drops this bomb today in an interview. Nunes is one of the very few who have seen all documents unredacted. He knows all.

    The declassification order f*cked them all. In due time. Post election heads will roll. Next step is to see how quickly FISA investigation takes and how forth coming it is.

    No way they can bitch about it now. They're sacrificing Rosenstein though. Why? Who is the bigger fish? Trump is going to get rid of Sessions so now Rosenstein will never take over and the AG will no longer be an obstructionist. They're essentially sacrificing control of the DOJ which I suppose was a matter of time before it happened anyway. Rosenstein's head should still be served on a silver platter, regardless. He was willing to destroy the president. Once he serves all use he can for Trump he should go to jail. I wonder if people are still going to believe there isn't a deep state or the whole thing isn't rigged.

    In case anyone has missed the nuances behind today's happenings. Probably the biggest day in the Russia witch hunt. Trump gives directive to ODNI/DOJ/FBI to declassify days ago. This sends the rats scambling, not just including individuals at DOJ and FBI. But also the gang of 4(Schumer, Pelosi, Warner, Schiff). Writing their unconstitutional letter to ODNI Director Coats, telling him to ignore Presidential powers(also siting an earlier agreement to redact damaging info). Now all of a sudden, the Trump hating NYT hands Rosenstein's head on a silver platter. With the breaking news RR said he would wear a wire to entrap the President in hopes to evoke 25th amendment. Trump could now fire RR instantly, with cause. But not too fast. What if Rosenstein was in fact about to reneg on his deal with the gang of 4 and release unredacted docs. So they said..."you know what...watch this...we'll have you fired by this weekend". In comes the anti-Rosenstein NYT article creating headlines today. Exactly how DC works. Instead of firing RR. Trump pulls the declassification directive. Gets an agreement from newly pissed-offed RR and has the current IG FISA investigation expedited. Possibly released before elections. Trump now has leverage on Mueller, RR, and the IG. If the IG decides to continue the coverup and the report is not forth coming, does not match the truth. Then boom, Trump declassifies and exposes all(also now including IG) to the American public. RR and IG are now painted into a corner to do what is right. Key Allies talking to Trump:

    Worth checking. I accidentally did this when going single turbo and it caused me headaches for weeks.

    MS can be used to control allllll sorts of things, I actually haven’t found a reason to even get a boostbox because MS seems to do it all. It is mainly my fueling control, works with boost to control the AFR and my port fueling. Needed something that works well with the solenoids and the turbos and this was it ! Great and cheap software compared to the old AEM infinity. Now to complete the loop with the proper o2s

    brother, I know and you know I have not been part of this for 8 years. Yes a mock up outside of a car on an engine stand was at SEMA yearrrs ago. It didn’t even have downstream o2. It didn’t fit. It was a prototype. The amount of work gone into my car is massive. They also stopped after that SEMA event because they needed another rwd car (my car) to work on because the shop was an awd. Amidst all this they built out a massive branch of other vehicles that took off and left bmw alone. So when you say 8 years. I mean do you even believe that. Someone come give cpe a brand new company then 100,000 dollars and tell them to do nothing but bmw till this is done. They could have done it in 6 months. But now they are moving to a 300,000 sq foot facility while maintaining an operation up here. Guess all the world records they have been part of on multiple platforms has kept them busy.... no I’m not gonna go here’s some 600hp logs of an unfinished product of a great company who’s making 650hp on a 2.3L world record mustang and call it done. The fucking car not even done is amazing and I have driven plenty of n54s around the community since 2008 you know that. I can tell you that this kit will still release even if it is for the 20 people that may get it just to pay for the R&D. The shit these guys have done with less than 11 employees over the years is insane. Sorry if it doesn’t work well with the internets timelines. Guess they should have come with their trucks of money and made a niche car worth it to a company making tons of money in multiple other platforms... do any of the known bmw vendors have multiple SEMA cars every year ? Anyone else have 300,000sq ft? There’s tons of n54 only company’s that are tiny and come out with some great shit. But they come out with great Shit for maybe 3 similar engines. This is why I steer away from the forums. You will all see soon enough. Gonna go try to get the o2s good if I have a weekend without rain maybe I’ll post some videos. Love the hate and the support! Happy Friday everyone, you will all have your data soon enough. I got hard drives full of it !

    VF-Engineering is offering their Hex Tuning software which can be flashed at home through the OBD-II port for the Ford Raptor Ecoboost. This is a 2018 model on their Mustang dyno putting down some very impressive numbers. Let's look at the baseline figures. Horsepower comes in 293 to the rear wheels which obviously is much less than the Raptor shows on a Dynojet. Torque is at 339 lb-ft at the rear wheels. Here is the overlay after the tune: The torque gain at 3600 rpm is gigantic, picking up well over 100 lb-ft. The Peak torque figure rises from 339 to 423 for a gain of 84 lb-ft at the wheels. The torque curve does drop toward redline but power holds fairly well until 5600 rpm. Peak horsepower goes up by 35 at wheels but obviously it is the torque gains that tells the story on this tune. Great work from VF as usual.

    I understand people in the area can go check it out but it seems odd to put in so much time, labor, money, etc., and not really show any media at all. I get the whole not releasing anything prematurely but I mean it's been 8+ years with this product... when is the time to be ready going to come?
