    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?

    Why all of these home built M3 wagons of all a sudden? Who knows but while BMW does not seem to think there is a market guys are building their own versions. The other day BimmerBoost shared an E91 M3 wagon with an S65 V8 but this is an F81 with the S55 twin turbo 3.0 I6. Which one do you prefer? It's hard to choose but it is not hard to admit this is an awesome build. Considering just how awesome it is, where are more details? All we have are a few photos and some minor details. Apparently SMV Repair in the UK did the work: https://www.facebook.com/smvrepairs/ Looks like the car was tuned by BimmerBoost vendor Evolve Automotive. Time for some videos of this beast in action!

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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?

    Adding intake valve lift to the N55 and S55 motors by physically modifying the Valvetronic system is a modification proposed by BimmerBoost membe @CobraMarty. He speculated the newer 3.0 I6 motors with Valvetronic could benefit from roughly a 7% increase in valve lift with minor modification. He was right and went on to develop a simple modification that mildly increases valve lift. Dyno results on the N52 and N55 were successful and now the modification was tested out on the S55 motor by BPC (Bimmer Performance Center). Their results are below. Snow day at BPC today, so I took advantage of it and got my Valve Lift Mod done finally (thanks Marty!). Didn't take too terribly long, the hardest part was getting the Supports in there just right. We started the process using Marty's Washer shim technique but then remembered we have the factory BMW Spring tool so we just used that. Dyno and Tuning tomorrow, hopefully for some 93 oct. power records Dyno results with 93 Oct and Downpipes only. No other mods. Stock turbos. Peak HP only gained about 5, however, it carried over 35 whp more all the way to redline which is good in my book. She feels wonderful. Ordered some quality E85 to test some E50 Mixes in the next few days so stay tuned. The red line is our current Stage 2 93 Oct. tune we have. Blue is the Lifter mod. Again, only mods are Downpipes (catless).

    335MAD started a thread N54 TARGET boost low in N54
    Hi all, I'm having trouble with my N54 335 and was hoping someone could help shed some light on my issue. Would be great if someone more knowledgeable could look through my logs? Basically under WOT the car hesitates and lacks power around 3500RPM - 4500RPM. No jolt, no codes, no lights. Feels lethargic and down on power. Resetting adaptations seems to help. I have attached logs (MHD stage 1&0) where you can see the boost TARGET is repeatedly low on many pulls when this problem occurs. Why the target is low beats me. Never had this problem before and it's always boosted fine. Boosts fine to target (even if 14psi target- rare but it should be that high) 78k KM, new HPFP, LP fuel sensor, VANOS solenoids cleaned, BMS OCC, DCI, vsrf cp, RB PCV valve, MHD. Plugs have 10k km on them, about to do valve cleaning, some older style 3&4 index injectors, some 9, unsure how old coils are. I have searched high and low to find a solution! Nothing seems to address low boost TARGET that I can tell. If I'm lucky and the target is high, it has no problem building boost to the set target. I wonder what inputs have an effect on DME boost target. STFT seems all over the place? And 15-16 on AFR? Lean?? Knocking? Thanks in advance for your help, these forums are such a wealth of information and absolutely love my new car!

    Some nice testing data from BMS (Burger Motorsports or Burger Tuning) with a 6-speed manual BMW F82 M4. The car has basic bolt on modifications in the form of a JB4, BEF, and BMS intake on E85 ethanol. Further details from BMS: Hey guys, Had a chance to spend a little time on the dyno today with our development M4. Driven by Payam@BMS it's a 2015 manual trans with around 80k miles. Bone stock except for a JB4, BMS intake, and our development back end flash map loaded via MHD. JB4 is using latest v1.8.1 firmware with the higher speed data logging. Testing today was done on straight E85 so we could test the limits of the factory fuel system. Some quick notes: 1) The high pressure pump keeps up with straight E85 relatively well at this power level, but pressure starts to nose off around 6000rpm at max boost. 2) Low pressure held fine even under higher RPM higher fuel demand. 3) The factory turbos still run out of steam at higher RPM. Exhaust modifications might extend the usable range slightly. 4) We ran the tuning with relatively conservative ignition advance peaking around 9 degrees. A couple timing drops here and there but mostly due to the back to back runs and working the turbo beyond its efficiency range at higher rpm. I meant to try running higher advance at higher RPM where the turbos drop off, but didn't have time to test it today. Next time. 5) Just for kicks I did a run on existing additive map1 and map2 for comparison. With the BEF loaded we'll be reprogramming all the JB4 map options so you retain a similarly wide range of power delivery options at your fingertips. Lots more to come...

    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.

    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.

    As you likely know, BoostAddict.com is currently testing this upgrade out on the PorscheBoost Project 991.2 car. The turbos are being installed and tuned and this software testing will be an integral part of the turbo upgrade package BoostAddict.com will offer for the 991.2 Carrera, T, S, and GTS. The upgrade utilizes the factory housings. This is commonly referred to as a hybrid upgrade. Here are factory turbo specs: 9A2 3.0 991.2 Carrera Horsepower: 370 Torque: 332 lb-ft Boost Pressure: 13.1 psi Turbos: 49mm compressor/45mm turbine 9A2 3.0 991.2 Carrera S Horsepower: 420 Torque: 369 lb-ft Boost Pressure: 16.0 psi Turbos: 51mm compressor/45mm turbine 9A2 3.0 991.2 Carrera GTS Horsepower: 450 Torque: 405 lb-ft Boost Pressure: 18.0 psi Turbos: 55mm compressor/48mm turbine The BoostAddict.com Stage 1 upgrade goes to a 61mm compressor wheel and 50.5mm turbine. We will of course not reveal the wheel designs. Here is what you can expect: Turbochargers: New OEM CHRA. ( Bearings, shaft, thrust washers ) Larger turbine wheel 50.5mm Larger 61mm Compressor wheel Core OEM units (starting life from OEM 991.2 C2/4, C2S/4S, or GTS2/4 turbos) are then: - Disassembled and Inspected - Hot Ultrasonic Immersion Cleaned. Di Water rinse. - Shot peened to restore finish to new or better appearance to Compressor and Turbine housings. - 5 Axis turned / Machined. - Reassembled and clocked for installation. What kind of power can you expect? Well, we will know when tuning wraps up. What about the price? It depends on how involved the software is among other factors but expect something competitive with the factory X51 upgrade except offering much more bang for the buck. As this upgrade requires the factory turbochargers a core exchange is required. Due to the limited number of cores in circulation those who get in line first will get their turbos first. The turnaround time is only 24 hours but that is only for cores in stock. Feel free to PM or e-mail admin@boostaddict.com to put a deposit down.

    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!

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?

    Twins breaking the 1000 crank horsepower range on the N54 platform would be huge news. That level of power from twins was promised from a handful of vendors for years but nothing came to fruition at least not until now. Will this upgrade from MMP be the first to do it? Perhaps. There is not yet any proof of that level of output from this upgrade but it certainly looks like if any twin turbo N54 upgrade will do it the MMP1K is the best bet: So who is going to push these to the limit and find out? $3499.99: https://mmp-e.com/collections/products/products/bmw-n54-mmp1k-turbo-kit-335i-135i-535i-z4-35i-235i-1m-335is

    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 single turbo kit, eh? Vi Engineered based out of Denver, Colorado has a new entry in the N54 single turbo top mount game. Based on some of their past work they clearly have talent developing turbo kits and manifolds. So what do they bring to the table? This: Your $4850 gets you the following: Garrett 3884GTW turbo Water fittings, oil fittings, lines, flanges 2 Tial 38mm Wastegates Manifold Dump tubes Downpipe that connects to stock exhaust Water pipe to water pump Relocation brackets for expansion tank Air filter Thermal wrap Turbo blanket What kind of numbers does the kit produce? BimmerBoost is not sure. They do not provide any graphs although obviously output can range wildly depending on boost, tuning, fuel, supporting mods, etc. Yet another option worth considering.

    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.
