    This is incredible and why BoostAddict.com picked the new Audi 2.5 TFSI I5 as its 2017 engine of the year. Iroz Motorsport made their way out to Famoso Raceway in California this past weekend with their Audi RS3 sedan and almost broke into the 9's. They managed a 10.090 @ 142.42 on a 1.602 60 foot. This is on the stock motor and stock DSG dual clutch transmission. It's almost too good to be true. Keep in mind also it is very warm in Southern California right now with temps over 90 degrees yesterday. Density altitude was in the 700 foot range at the time of the run. As for what was necessary Iroz used their custom Xona Rotor turbocharger upgrade and pulled some weight from the car. The intercooler and downpipe are Iroz pieces but the airbox and exhaust after the downpipe is stock. What do you even say?

    Thanks a lot feminists. You have even managed to get your hideous tentacles into the pinnacle of motorsport to strangle to death an aspect fans love. Those fans are predominantly men so you can understand why Formula 1 would be a target for the modern day feminist. In our ever more so politically correct society attractive women 'cheerleading' at sporting events are apparently a no-no: Yeah, right. Super hot women around hundreds of millions of dollars of world class race cars in locales around the globe piloted at incredible speeds to determine a victor somehow doesn't appeal any longer. What should these women be replaced with? Perhaps some 300 pound blue haired feminist lecturing the audience on how race cars are racist because 'race' is right there in the name? What do the women who just lost their jobs think? Say what you want about Bernie Ecclestone, he wouldn't have caved to this absurdity. Source

    Well, the new BMW M5 is the raw muscle champion out of the newest sport sedan crop. It will beat all of it rivals in a drag race and do so rather easily. It certainly helps that BMW has the displacement advantage on everyone except for Cadillac and Jaguar. The thing about Cadillac and Jaguar is that they are not running turbocharged powerplants. The previous generation F10 M5 was heavily sandbagged in output. One can only imagine what the real output of the F90 twin turbo S63B44T4 V8 is. If we were to guess, it's making over 600 horsepower to all four wheels stock. Yes, more power at the wheels than it is rated at the crank. There is no other way to explain it hitting 129 miles per hour of trap speed through the 1/4 mile even if it is a magazine time. The 10.9 elapsed time should be easily replicated on the dragstrip by owners. All wheel + automatic = easy launches. The new M5 is not only the quickest and fastest car in its class it is also the lightest. Well, at 4288 pounds it is the lightest all wheel drive sedan. The Cadillac CTS-V is the overall lightest in the class at 4108 pounds. Congratulations BMW. You built the best 4-door dragster in the world.

    I've been away from the computer for a bit enjoying the olympics and was pleasantly surprised to see Tony reaching out with an e-mail in my inbox. I'll skip the particulars but I think there is a possibility of mending fences. Ultimately, the decision is based on what is best for the forum and its members. That means you guys. Do I want all products available here? Yes. I do. I want you to have the ability to choose from a bevvy of tuning products with great support and advertising available. I'm in this to have the best forum and site for you guys. I'm not in this to hug every vendor and sing kumbaya with them but I can certainly be respectful. I can be a professional and so can the vendors here. There certainly have been ups and downs. I'm not just making a unilateral decision but informing the community as it can be a delicate ecosystem and I prefer to inform you of what is going on as after all, the users make the forum. I reached out to @Terry@BMS about this issue and resolving it so everyone is satisfied. Terry is doing business with VTT and some interesting things which I think you would all want to see, right? Let's see what BimmerBoost users have to say and if we can be above a mob mentality and forgive. I'm not going to say I am without blame.

    AC Fabrication announced this bottom mount twin scroll N54 manifold a while back and now we have some testing results courtesy of BMS. The numbers are strong with a good looking curve on an unnamed BorgWarner EFR turbocharger. Here are the details from BMS: Payam finally got his car back together last week and sorted out the usual various gremlins that come from an eBay motor swap. So we took the opportunity today to do a little dyno testing with it. The setup is: 1) Stock junker motor 2) ACF twin scroll bottom mount kit, running a relatively small EFR turbo. Payam tells me its roughly equivalent to a PTE 6266. They put an 8psi WG spring on it as a starting point. 3) Fuel IT Stage4 fuel system, 100% E85, random China intake manifold. 4) All the rest of the usual suspects for bolt ons. 5) Tuned via JB4 using off the shelf software, settings, and back end flash map. Surprisingly virtually no actual tuning work was needed to get this thing up and running pretty well. Default port injection settings too. JB4 is doing all the work on that front in the back end as you toggle through different boost profiles. 6) No antilag used, 4th gear runs, ~75f temps, etc. Anyway we took the car through it's paces on the dyno. I found the lowest and highest maps the most interesting. On the WG spring at around 8psi it made ~400whp. Then on the other end with the WG spring completely maxed out (WGDC close to 100%), it put down an impressive ~740whp. Anthony and Payam were both at the dyno with me and there was some debate between us as to whether the spring is maxed or the turbo itself. Hopefully we settle that soon. Under real world load the car spools and drives really nicely, and no doubt if someone cared to optimize the tuning to the more aggressive side of things there is power and spool to be had. Personally I'm just finally glad this car is done so Anthony can start working on our white car's bottom mount turbo kit. Got Payam's car back on the dyno today with a 12psi WG spring and a new version of the EOS intake manifold. We were hoping to eek a little more power out up top and did but at the slightly higher boost levels we had a lot more timing instability. We also accidentally did a 35psi midrange run (duty bias wasn't adjusted for tighter spring)... Hello 800wtq+ on a stock motor!

    A BMW drag car built in South Africa? That is what you have here from Budler Motorsport. They chose the classic S38 inline-6 to be the heart of the drag car and BimmerBoost thinks that is a great choice. The motor tops our list of all-time M engine afterall. What kind of power is it making? Good question. Quite a bit considering the car is running mid 7's at over 185 miles per hour. Details are somewhat hard to come by on this build as specifications are not provided and there is not exactly a ton of media out there on it. What we know is the quickest run is Budler Motorsport's 7.49 @ 298 km/h at Tarlton International Raceway in South Africa. Beyond that, BimmerBoost compiled what media there was to find on the car which is posted below. A shame there is not more info on it.

    Aus335iGuy started a thread DCT FTW in N54
    News just to hand Jayamona@motiv has managed to find and alter some of the tables in the N54 DME and essentially N54 DCTs will soon have launch control with user selectable launch RPMs. Other platforms on MHD as well (yes you poor deprived N55ers) It will be out before the north American summer i hope with other “goodies”. Next One particularly savvy tuner PureEvilN54 has divulged how to set the ignition tables in the DME to provide anti lag (this has been seen here before its just that hes shared it with others Another great development is that we now know that we can flash M3 GTS software to N54 DCTs. You need the GWS unit and some flashing and coding This means we can change shift severity on the fly because drivelogic works(you need the button) You lose launch control but you gain another thing and that is if you use the M3 ZB file you can also use any M3 final drive ratio. DCTs will soon be the fastest n54s...

    It was just a matter of time. We knew back when BimmerBoost member @allmotor_2000 went to the Pure Turbos Stage X S63TU turbo upgrade that his F10 M5 was a prime candidate to top the vaunted 1000 rwhp mark. Well, mission accomplished. How about 1008 rwhp? Mod list: Pure Spec X Turbo System Carbahn Autowerks built S63TU motor BMS custom JB4 and Meth DMETUNING backed flash Upgraded DCT DSS driveshaft and Axles Milestone reached and broken. This was hit with 34 psi of boost and slipping clutch discs. The stock rear section of the exhaust is also in place. Congratulations to all involved! Now how much further past 1000 whp will they go? The record holder is still BPC with their 1026 rwhp pull but the point is multiple F10 M5's are now topping 1000 to the wheels. Maybe 2018 is the year of the S63TU?

    No shame here. The BMW M2 is simply nowhere near the level of the Audi RS3. Despite the BMW's N55B30T0 powerplant offering half a liter of displacement and an additional cylinder over the Audi's 2.5 TFSI it gets clobbered. We all know the M2 is neutered to keep it from stepping on the toes of its big brothers but the RS3 sedan is more than a match for anything BMW has in the lineup. Seriously, it is running 10.0 flat at over 140 miles per hour on the stock internals. Built motor F80 M3's or F82 M4's would have their hands full competing against that. Here is what the two cars in the video below bring to the table: 2017 BMW M2 ER Catless downpipe Wagner Evo Comp 2 Intercooler ER hot and cold chargepipes Dinan intake Dinan resonator delete and muffler Pure turbo inlet Fuel it LPFP Bootmod 3 Stage 2 OTS 2018 AUDI RS3 IROZ Motorsports Front mount intercooler IROZ Motorsports Downpipe + midpipes Custom Code stage 2 91 octane software Stock everything else. From a stop the M2 gets crushed. From a roll it is slightly closer but it still gets crushed. The bottomline is the RS3 is on another level with bolt ons let alone with turbo upgrades.

    The M135i is not a real M car. They acknowledge this in the video thankfully or somebody's head at BimmerBoost would likely be exploding. The thing is, when you make the point of what is or is not a BMW M car how do you leave out that M stands for Motorsport? Why is that a big deal? Because the stock E92 M3 they bring to this drag race has the only engine that won in Motorsport doing things like going around a track. It is the oldest M there but would clean up with the other two around the track. When did the measure of an M car become drag racing? Well, around the same time BMW went turbo and suddenly everyone cared more about power than the all around package BMW M was once known for. Well, whatever, here's a 1/2 mile race by Autocar. You already know before it begins the F10 M5 will win. The M3 not only has a smaller motor but no turbos. No chance. Give it a blower and now we have something interesting to watch. The M135i (thanks a lot for putting the letter on M on everything BMW) has a tuned N55. Why they bothered with giving it a limited slip differential over a turbo upgrade is anyone's guess. They could have really opened some eyes and done something different if they showed an M135i topping an M3 and an M5. Oh, and would some acceleration data have killed them? Enjoy:

    Well, that didn't take long. Actually, it took a little over a week. The new C7 generation Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is the production car lap king on the VIR (Virginia International Raceway) Grand Course West layout. Chevrolet obviously saw the opportunity with Car and Driver having tested the Ford GT to make a splash and to their credit this is indeed massive spalsh. For the Corvette ZR1 to one-up a $500k supercar with a mid-engine layout for a fraction of the price is incredible. It also diminishes the Ford GT and certainly makes the vehicle look overpriced for what it is delivering. So what is the new record? 2:37.3. That doesn't just beat everyone else. It blows them so far away you wonder if they were even trying: Holy crap! A 5.7 second difference? Admittedly, driver skill played a role here but wow... wow!

    This just keeps getting better and better. As you know, feminists forced Formula 1 to remove the grid girls we all know and love. What are they replacing grid girls with? Grid children. Yes, seriously, that is Formula 1's move. The fired grid girls are organizing a protest on Facebook which is receiving tremendous support. The question now is, will feminist heads explode trying to figure out which side to support? On one hand, you have the feminists that forced Formula 1 to get rid of the girls saying they were being exploited. On the other hand you have the grid girls saying they chose the job on their own and enjoyed doing it without any feeling of exploitation. This is peak feminism. Women destroying other women over perceived injustice which the women who are supposedly suffering from this injustice say they are exercising freedom of choice. Somebody pass the popcorn. Source

Keep in mind this is the base Q50 3.0T and not the Red Sport version although the turbochargers are basically the same between the two. What make this even more impressive is the car is on pump gas and has bolt on modifications. BoostAddict contacted Ivey Tune and is waiting on the full graph which will be edited in once received:

    A 2:38.62 laptime around VIR's (Virginia International Raceway) Grand Course West in the new For GT is spectacular. It's much quicker than the 2:43.0 laptime Car and Driver was able to set. Yet it still trails the VIR Grand Course West champion the C7 Corvette ZR1 and its 2:37.3. The new time from professional driver Billy Johnson looks better but the GT is still being dominated by over a second by a much cheaper Corvette: It is difficult to look at the Ford GT as anything other than a letdown in 2018 performance car terms considering the hype and price point. It certainly does well in its professional racing classes though.

    Another day another N54 turbo upgrade with Chinese sourced housings. Introducing Kott Turbo Works which is based out of Illinois and offering various N54 turbo rebuilding and replacement services along with a turbo upgrade option. You may recall a rather interesting thread on BimmerBoost that highlighted a certain turbo vendor going to cheap Asian cast housings and the problems that came with that switch. Make no mistake, there is only one reason to go to China for housing production and that is to lower costs (upping profit margins), not improve quality. You can make the decision yourself as to what you want to run but it certainly seems those offering upgrades utilizing the factory housings are more reliable over the long term and higher quality. Kott calls their upgrade the KTB001: Hybrid TD03 turbochargers front and rear for BMW N54 engine with billet compressor wheel. 43.4mm inducer, 56mm exducer billet compressor wheel 41.2mm exducer 47mm inducer turbine wheel 44mm inlet inside diameter New high strength stainless steel wastegate bushings Vanadium alloy cast turbine housing 1000 Celsius rating Capable of producing 600+ horsepower with proper tune on E85 fuel 500 horsepower on 91 octane pump gas High performance journal and thrust bearings VSR balanced No core charge 1 year warranty $1400.00 This is the current state of the N54 market. To do a high end motor build and turbo setup with proper tuning will run more than what the cars cost these days. The market is flooded with kids who want a ton of horsepower for bargain bin prices. Many of whom just buy whatever is the cheapest whether it comes from a scammer or if it is low quality junk that cracks. You can also look at it as the N54 platform is a tuning value rather than as it experiencing a quality drain. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle.

    This image leaked out from a garage showing what appears to be the undisguised rear end of the upcoming 992 generation Porsche 911. Based on previous covered up spy photos this seems to be the back of the 911 Carrera S. The image was since deleted from the social media account that posted it which means this is likely legitimate. The 992 is shaping up well.

    Hey guys, I am happy to be back here on BimmerBoost to share new products, results, and answer technical questions -always a good idea to have a forum presence and that's what I'm here for. Let's jump right back into it. 2018 has quite a few VTT products being released, but here is a taste of what's coming in the N54 world: GC REBOOT Let's get started with the GC Reboot! We took our already potent GC line up, and did a ground-up redesign, getting rid of some things we didn't like and adding things we wanted to improve. Key Features of the GC 2.0 reboot are as follows: • 100% designed, and cast for VTT: this is not a partnership with any other company • All new castings with VTT logos front and center • D5S Ni resist material is used throughout the hot side. This includes Turbine housings as well as manifolds. • All-New Compressor housings with ribbed inlets to ensure a secure fit from inlet to housing. • Single piece V-band clamp connection from turbine housing to manifold sized to fit Tial Clamps. No more awkward two-piece clamps to install. • Our single biggest improvement is the casting of our proprietary turbine wheels in Garrett GT28 profile with a TD04HL shaft to fit the existing GC family bearing housing. Wheels are cast from Inconel 713L. This eliminates the industry-wide TD04HL 9 blade wheel failure problem while improving wheel Aero; better spool and more flow. • Same as before, both Full sized GC’s, and GC Lites will be available. • Rebooted pricing. With all these improvements the GC line up will cost less when released, NOT more. • ESTIMATED AVAILABILITY DATES o Late Q1 2018 with special intro pricing on website for GC’s and GClites ALUMINUM CHARGE PIPE Next up we have our new VTT Aluminum charge pipes. We have heard many stories of silicone charge pipe issues. While they work perfectly well when installed correctly, the number of install issues lead us to create more durable aluminum charge pipes that share the increased flow capability of the silicone units. Key Features of the VTT aluminum charge pipes are as follows: • High flow Y connection to merge both banks • No more melted outlets from install too close to the manifold • Available in factory V-band connections, and 1.5” hose connection to fit GC turbos • Available in 335LHD, 135/535/Z4 these will NOT fit RHD (sorry guys) • Hard powder coated black • ESTIMATED AVAILABILITY DATES o Q1 2018 (end) VTT SINGLE KIT Next, we have what most will see as a departure from the usual VTT philosophy, but we felt it was time to give the N54/N55 platform another option in the popular single turbo section. We still love twins but sometimes you just want a quick-spooling high flow single. We got you covered. :D Introducing the VTT Cast Manifold V-Band Twin Scroll Bottom Mount Single Turbo line up. Please note while we have been working on this for a while and have many parts cast, these are not expected to be released until late spring or summer 2018. Also, note the pictures are representative of our “blank” manifold casting. Our fabricator is adding O2 bungs, and EWG flanges for the N54, and EWG kits. The N55 kits using IWG turbos will use the blank manifold as no O2 bungs or EWG flanges are needed. Key Features of the VTT V-Band Bottom Mount Single Turbo Kits are as follows: • Industry-first true twin scroll bottom mount kit using V-BAND connection for ease of install • EWG and IWG kits will be available. IWG kits will use FACTORY boost control. No need for add-on boxes, or Mac Solenoids • Competitive pricing • Fitment for N54 and N55 (N55 details to be posted in N55 section soon!) • JB and DBB options will be available • Manifold cast from Ni-Resist D5S • GENUINE Garrett turbochargers used for DBB optioned kits • Ball Bearing Turbo choices for N54 will include: o Gen2 GTX3076R (600WHP) o Gen 2 GTX3582R(700WHP) o GTX3584RS(850WHP) (3076, 3582 available in IWG, or EWG. 3584RS EWG only) • Journal Bearing Turbo choices for the N54 will include o GTX3076 sized Journal bearing turbo with IWG control • ESTIMATED AVAILABILITY DATES o N54 EWG kits end of Q2 2018 o N54 IWG kits Q3 2018 VTT SHOP CAR PROGRESS Not really an announcement, just a little hint of some cool stuff we're doing. A couple teaser pics of the shop white car, which ran 172.9x in the 1/2 mile. When we did that (nearly a year ago) the car had GC's on her, was full weight and Tony was rowing the gears. Time to step it up a notch. Below is a pic of some serious turbos, double overdriven hpfp's, and enough instrumentation to keep getting the data we need to push limits. Personally I'm very excited about seeing this progress, and looking forward to keeping you guys posted on this one.

    Nice of FVD to finally join the 991.2 3.0 tuning party but they are definitely late and not bringing anything interesting to the table. First of all, when you launch a tune you need to prove the output you are making. FVD does not. No graph, no acceleration figures, nothing. The 0-60 claim they provide is slower than stock test figures. Who writes this stuff for FVD? It's terrible: FVD Software Power Gains: Max. Power - 335 kW (455 HP) @ 6500rpm Max. Torque - 580 Nm (428 lb.-ft.) @ 1900rpm Max. Speed - 305 km/h (189 mph) Max. RPM - 7900 rpm Acceleration 0-100 km/h (0-62.5 mph)* - 4.0s They also claim to bump the redline to 7900 rpm and state the stock car revs to 7800. It doesn't. It revs to 7500. So what we have are several mistakes, no proof, and consumers just having to take their word for it. FVD's launch makes GIAC's release look stellar in comparison. Even if FVD is hitting their 455 crank horsepower target the PorscheBoost.com project 991.2 hit that number to wheels with Gintani tuning months ago. Way too little, way too late from FVD.
