    Nice looking manifolds and wastegates ..... errr .... diverter valves.
  8. S63/S63TU: I always wondered if the original version was a...

    I always wondered if the original version was a true CAI system as that was never confirmed in videos or in any announcements that I saw.

    Now we are made aware that they were basically high tech...

    BMW uses dual scroll single turbo for a reason.

  18. G14/G15: Well there is always a Bentley if you like...

    Well there is always a Bentley if you like driving sitting on a pillow.

  19. N54: I do not know, but I think the N54 not having...

    I do not know, but I think the N54 not having valvetronic is an advantage if you want to boost it up. A lot is known to build these to closed deck specifications and how to fuel them. Being less...

    Totally agree, but then there are those who think pumping their left leg and moving a lever through space is "more involving." I would rather be faster with both hands on the wheel. I only wish I...
