    This is why dealerships and car salesmen get a bad name. The most infuriating part is that some $#@! will definitely buy it at or near that price, justifying the dealershipís decision to sell it...

    They probably think the cracked rod cap was an accident LOL.
  3. I see what youíre saying and I think you are...

    I see what youíre saying and I think you are totally right. WTF is the point of doing the test that way LOL? Honestly, top gear acceleration a stupid test anyway, because top gear is always...

    That seems really good for 16T turbos. Old MHI technology, and not all that big.

    Oh, and the GT350 wins this comparison by a landslide on sound alone LOL.

    Iím surprised the GT350 doesnít cover the 1/4 mile quicker and faster than a 12.5 @ 117 with 526 HP. Not a very effective use of power. However, that skidpad number is impressive!

    Side note: ...

    Glad to hear you Cali guys arenít getting totally screwed on this one! Now maybe you can get San Francisco to clean all the dookie off of the sidewalks.

    I’m just wondering how the Camaro SS 1LE and Mustang GT PP2 are beating an M2 competition around a track. Shouldn’t the M2C be the most ultimate ///M car currently availible?
  9. B58: Itís too bad serious race teams / companies...

    Itís too bad serious race teams / companies didnít jump on other BMW engines so quickly. Imagine how quickly the N54, N55, and S55 engines would have progressed with the backing of a company like...
  10. E30: Seems pretty cool, but just imagine an S65,...

    Seems pretty cool, but just imagine an S65, instead. Probably waaaaay more expensive to do, though.
  11. G20/G80: Thatís pretty awesome. Alpina is super nice...

    Thatís pretty awesome. Alpina is super nice stuff. Too bad BMW doesnít build an M3 wagon with the flared fenders found on the sedan, but this is the next best thing.
  12. General: Looks like an ass print.

    Looks like an ass print.
  13. S58: BMW cares. The N55 and S55 fuel systems already...

    BMW cares. The N55 and S55 fuel systems already provide enough fuel to max out the stock turbos, so BMW is not going to spend the money to implement DI and PI when they can easily reach the stock...
  14. S58: That fuel system is a 13 year old design that BMW...

    That fuel system is a 13 year old design that BMW moved on from years ago. The newer DI sytems are much better. Also, why would BMW spend money to build a fuel system that reaches well beyond OEM...
  15. S58: My question is why would they use port and direct...

    My question is why would they use port and direct injection? DI is newer, better technology and will provide plenty of fuel on its own if designed correctly. I think the only reason other...
  16. N54: Oh yeah, I always forget about the 1M. What is...

    Oh yeah, I always forget about the 1M.

    What is the process of closing up the deck? Does the casting get machined out to specific dimensions and a filler piece is pressed into the top? Any...
  17. B58: Wow, impressive results as usual with the JB4. ...

    Wow, impressive results as usual with the JB4. Even right up near redline, there is a lot of additional power to be gained with the stock turbo. Looks like it picked up 60-70 WHP or so.
  18. Damn, some heavy hitters there! That is a lot of...

    Damn, some heavy hitters there! That is a lot of 1000+ HP street cars in one place.
  19. B58: That guy needs more than a correction, he needs a...

    That guy needs more than a correction, he needs a goddamn brain. Going 6’s in a year? LOLOLOLOL!!! :rofl2:

    Looks really good, especially with the VTT valve cover! Nice job.
  21. S58: And you are correct that they are not tapering...

    And you are correct that they are not tapering the actual boost pressure downward on the S55, but they are tapering load target (and therefore WG duty cycle) downward, so they are limiting the amount...
  22. S58: Not sure what info you are basing this on, but...

    Not sure what info you are basing this on, but the S55 is definitely not having any issues holding higher boost to redline on the stock tune. Here is a log I have from my stock F80 on stock tune. ...
  23. S58: How do you know that? Have you looked at the...

    How do you know that? Have you looked at the load tables in the stock tune or logged WG duty cycle? I can tell you for a fact that the stock S55 maps taper boost intentionally, and I would be very...
  24. S58: The IATís arenít too bad for 23psi, even as it...

    The IATís arenít too bad for 23psi, even as it reaches redline; thatís promising. I imagine BMW is tapering boost downward toward redline like they do with all of their turbo I6 engines. Turn up...
  25. S58: The stock S55 turbos can hold 20+ psi to redline,...

    The stock S55 turbos can hold 20+ psi to redline, so Iím sure the S58 will be able to as well. The problem is outlet temperature of that air. They probably wonít do it efficiently.
