    Turbocharged Jeep Cherokee SRT8's are no joke. Having all wheel drive traction helps the boosted Hemi's put their power down. 10.79 @ 124.52 is quick and fast but we have seen SRT8's go as fast as 9.56 @ 145. We even have a member that converted his to RWD and just went full drag prep on the vehicle going 8's. In that context 10.79 @ 124 may not be that impressive but this is an SRT8 with some forged pistons able to run 10's all day. He is running a 76mm single turbo and that makes for an easy 10 second Jeep. Pretty impressive. Especially when you consider it goes head to head with a turbocharged Mustang 5.0.

    It's nice to have a sugar daddy, isn't it? That is how Mercedes-Benz characterized its relationship with Aston Martin last year. Rumors have swirled all over the place regarding Aston Martin and Mercedes-Benz. Last year for example Mercedes was rumored to go from supplying Aston Martin with engines to a full blown takeover. Well, Mercedes will indeed serve as the sugar daddy for Aston Martin and supply engines and technology. The first engine they will supply is the M177/M178 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 that sees duty in the AMG GT and W205 C63 AMG. The question now is how will Aston Martin differentiate the engine from its AMG use? Will it just use the same AMG GT S M178 and call it a day at 510 horsepower? Reports are that Aston Martin plans to tune the motor for its use so we could see far more than 510 horsepower among other differences. Regardless, expect to see Aston Martins with AMG engines debut by the end of the year. Source

    You could always give one of these a try and test out different connectors on the MOST system to see if something is dead. I know its a shot in the dark but this thing saved my friends ass when we finally figured out what was wrong with his Audi A6 with no audio when the Bluetooth module decided to die. http://www.ecstuning.com/ES165091/?gclid=CjwKEAjwotmoBRCc6LWd2ZnkuBYSJACyt2quUzrGPnntrBRdX2A94AqA33rl0Zm_LcBwzndBrQCFGxoCurvw_wcB

    Hey thanks for the post! Just to be clear, no one received any "old" pipes, there will be no production changes, we made 3 sets of samples, and test fit them all. On the 3rd revision we were happy, and we had 20 sets made from those. We then sold all 20 sets of the inlets, most all are installed, half of them by people in their garage with minimal tools, the feedback we have been getting is almost all the same. A pain to install (as an inlet will be) but once wrestled into place, they fit perfectly, as we designed them too. If you had issues with the front pipe, it is possible maybe you got a bad inlet, that was not molded properly etc, but the front pipe on a RHD should fit the same as on a LHD. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

    That said I think upgraded twins are best for you. If you don't care about top end punch and want nice driveability go with modded stock frames.

    So was the Supra and we know what dominates there. The amount of turbos the motor has to start with doesn't necessarily mean much. The gallardo starts with zero turbos.

    93oct and about 1600-1700cc's or about 268-300cc per cyl of meth is all I'll need to safely run my end goal of 700. I may turn bost up another psi or 2 for the half miles but ill see how she does. I run a boost pump to the main pump and increased flow about 70%. I have my own methods of tuning it but for my needs i've built it with plenty of head room

    Yeah but how much can you flow off the one pump. It isn't very big and as your boost goes up your flow will go down. I can't see you getting much over 800 on this setup. But I'll wait and see.

    Why? I basically run that with 1/6th the electrical solenoids and moving parts. I like the way the meth controllers fail safe if something shall happen. You dont really get that with the PI kits. Additionally the PI kits cost more than almost triple than a port meth set up. I just dont see the benefit of it

    Jeez I totally abandoned this thread. My bad. Been out of town for most of the last 3 months so i'm really just now getting around to tuning. Getting port fuel 100% has taken a bit of time, and there's still a lot of work to do on that front. But for the time being, wanted to share a 20PSI log with E60. http://www.datazap.me/u/135pats/4th-gear-e60?log=0&data=1-3-4-10-11-18-24 It's below freezing right now, which is insulting. But as it warms up, i'll be turning the boost up to more like 23-25PSI to see when the transmission gets pissed. Jake's working on some cool things to keep it from getting too cranky, his work has been awesome as always. One interesting thing i've noticed is that under medium load, the turbo almost feels like it's spooling into the surgeline if you load up 4th gear then shift into 5th. It could just be perception on my part, but it "feels" like mild surge. Would probably just speak to the manifold being rather efficient with heat, but i'd need to log it first. BTW any of you have recommendations for coils? These STs are way, way too soft :awesome:

    Now that they have port kits why not run meth in a separate tank to the port rail. Been thinking of doing this or running e98. I would have a flush tank to run gasoline to prevent corrosion though. I've also been debating trying it on the di but might wait until I sleeve a motor.

    Flinchy replied to a thread Anyone fit VTT inlets RHD? in N54
    yeah but the only difference with the LHD, is you can get your hand up there a tiny bit easier... it'd be basically just as difficult to fit 135i2 made it seem like it was a specific problem for RHD *only* for the VTT inlets no matter what inlet is used, there's going to be challenges fitting it... just like downpipes with the limited squeezy hand space.

    Start to finish expect to spend no less than $10K when going with a single turbo setup. Fueling, suspension, dyno time and other random expenses you don't foresee add up quickly.

    This is the same manual C7 Z06 we previously saw go 9.872 @ 138.42. The weather was warmer this time out but the car is clearly pulling harder up top as evidenced by the three miles per hour gained. It looks like they worked out the fueling and tuning issues that were costing the car some trap speed. There is more in this of course but this is a very nice result based on the mod list: - Fasterproms custom tune by Jeremy Formato - Fasterproms custom 2.31 pulley - Fasterproms Ported Supercharger - Modified air box, and air duct with modified AFE CAI - Fasterproms Thermal reduction plates That reduce blower heat soak - Fasterproms Flex fuel kit- 50% E85 blend - Fasterproms 1.5Gal Expansion tank - ARH 1.875 headers - Hoosier 315/30/18 dr's In cooler weather (600 density altitude) this car should have another couple miles per hour in it. We're starting to get an idea for what bolt on mods can do for the Z06 LT4 though and the benefits flex fuel with ethanol brings.

    Sticky replied to a thread New S65 Record? 785whp in S65
    It is so unbelievably frustrating. I feel like I'm speaking another language sometimes. I don't know why it is so hard for people to understand. By the way, Vortech released a billet impeller for the YSI. I wasn't even running it previously. Guys in racing classes have picked up 3 miles per hour from the impeller switch alone. It might shock people to know nobody races a V3si. There's probably a reason for that. Regardless, you can push 2000 cfm with the blower now (and spin it to 80k rpm). I don't even know why this is a discussion. Well, it's because I have the most powerful E92 and people desperately want to try to take that away. Unfortunately for them, the laws of physics still exist. Fucking amen. Finally someone understands.

    EXACTLY what i was looking for! I love when people try to beat around the bush. especially when it comes to CFM, volume, or just basic physics. I can even start to realize having no knowlege of that engine besides what you told me that at 15 psi on that block you are not capable of making 800hp...
