    Another day, another 10 second S55 powered F8X BMW. This one is an F82 M4 with the Xona Rotor S55 turbo upgrade. The S55 engine tuning is a hybrid piggyback and ECU flash setup with a BMS JB4 in conjunction with flash dyno tuning from Precision Tuning. The result is 4 consecutive 10.9 second passes at the ATCO drag strip in New Jersey. Let's go over the modifications: Xona Turbos JB4 Precision Tuning Custom Tune & Flash by @kbaldi29 AEM Meth Kit Dodson Sportsman Clutch Packs DSS 1200 hp axles ER Downpipes ER Chargepipes Maximum PSI Intake Mickey Thompson ET Street S/S 305 35 18s. These modifications result in 648 rwhp and 653 rwtq: Congrats to @NJ-M4 on the consistent 10 second performance but he no doubt is concerned about the S55 crank hub issue. Thus far, he has avoided any problems.

    Now this is a hell of an achievement. To put it into perspective this is power equal to a built motor ESS VT3 supercharger setup except achieved on a stock internal S65 V8 and with far more torque. Quite simply, turbos are far better for the S65 V8 platform than centrifugal blowers. Why? Greater efficiency and less stress. Rather than manually spinning an impeller and increasing stress on the front of the motor the exhaust gasses are doing the work but you already knew turbos were more efficient. In the S65 V8 application you get the benefit of being able to push harder in the power and torque department on the stock internals. 708 wheel horsepower and 495 lb-ft of torque at the wheels are stock internal S65 V8 records: No doubt 100% E85 fuel helps here as well. The fuel system is upgraded for this of course. What turbos and how much boost? A pair of GT3076's at 11 psi of boost. These turbos obviously can be pushed much harder but the question would be how much further before the engine let's go? Who wants to find out? Just look at the curve. It's a thing of beauty. Yes, it is purposely tuned to not have a huge torque hit down low (they considered other turbochargers for this application) and offer nice and flat torque delivery once spooled until redline. Just imagine what a built motor curve with double the boost pressure will look like. This is also tuned on the stock DME as well which is truly remarkable and shows considerable skill and experience with the factory ECU. The S65 V8 turbo era is officially here.

    There are a handful of Australian BenzBoost members with very powerful W204 C63 AMG's. Part of this is due to Weistec's strong Australian presence as the 3.0 liter twin screw Weistec superchargers are powering the fastest C63's in the world some of which are Australian. Well, you can add yet another Australian C63 to the list of most powerful C63's as BenzBoost member @RNS-11Z is gunning for over 1000 horsepower. How does he intend to get there? With all of this: Weistec Stage 3 Weistec Gearbox Modified valve body New standard convertor Weistec ice trunk Forged Pistons and Rods CnC ported heads Wave track LSD Autowerks Tune Upgrade fuel system 20psi pulley and tune He wants a low 9 second car: BenzBoost will be following his progress and as soon as the build is completed we will post results. Good luck @RNS-11Z, we're all pulling for you!

    The acceleration of the all wheel drive Tesla Model S models is hyped to holy hell. Namely the P90D and the new P100D. Don't get us wrong the Tesla Model S P90D and P100D models are very quick but the cars are not unbeatable and still have a long way to go. Why? Well, several reasons. To extract maximum performance you basically need a full charge and a primed battery. If you have been driving around all day and are heading home to charge the car it will not perform in the same manner as if you just finished charging it and are ready for some Ludicrous mode runs. Also, the P90D is a thousand pounds heavier than the Nissan GTR which itself is not a lightweight. It is a torque monster off the line but performance drops off hard past 100 miles per hour. A stock Nissan GTR is enough to beat a Model S P90D. Top Gear proves that in their video which they are not letting anyone embed so go here to see it: http://www.topgear.com/videos/top-gear-drag-races/top-gear-drag-races-tesla-model-s-p90d-vs-nissan-gt-r

    E36luv started a thread For Sale: VM 6466 Single Turbo kit in Buy/Sell - Parts
    I have decided that I don't need to have two BMW FI builds going on at the same time so I am selling this kit that I bought used. (I am focusing on my e36 build for now) I never installed it but if I remember correctly it has approximately 5k miles on it. The compressor housing is polished and the 3.5 down pipe merges to the stock exhaust. Manifold and downpipe are wrapped in DEI heat wrap. I will post pictures this weekend. Brand new this would cost $5795 without shipping. I am asking $4,995 shipped. That is at least $1,000 off and you won't have to wait for the kit to be built it will ship right away. Description of parts from VM - 2 piece 304 Stainless SCH10 top mount manifold all Tig welded by hand and purged. -3.5" 304 Stainless downpipe (The only kit offered with a 3.5" downpipe on the market) -304 Stainless dumptubes or recirculated wastegate tubes -2.5" Aluminum charge pipe -Water pump inlet tube with Billet flange -Your choice of Precision Ball Bearing Turbo -2 Tial MV-S wastegates (I am an authorized Tial distributor so you can be assured they are genuine TIAL and not a knock off.) -Single Turbo BMS airfilter -Mac Solenoid with PNP harness - -4 AN stainless braided hoses and fittings for all of the wastegate reference lines (Also the only kit to offer this, this is very important given how tightly packed everything is in the hottest portion of the engine bay.) -Coolant Tank relocation brackets - Billet Oil drain flange --10 AN stainless hardline oil drain tube -Billet adapter for oil feed to the block -Billet block offs for the coolant ports in the head -6 feet of heater hose and fittings to relocate the coolant tank - -4 Stainless braided hose for oil feed with fiberglass insulation to shield it from the heat -Hardware for manifold where shorter nuts are needed and well as all the required bolts and clamps -2 2.5" Silicone Couplers and clamps -90 degree Silicone Coupler for the water pump inlet - Turbo Blanket

    With the carbon buildup issue that some direct injection gasoline engines are suffering from (Not sure if later GDI designs took steps to reduce this, like special coatings?) is there any quick and easy way to check the intake valves without pulling so much hardware off. For example, could the silicon elbow be removed from the charge pipe and a bore scope threaded up past the thottle body? Will the TB be closed when the engine is off? (I'm not an expert). I'd like to get mine cleaned if it's needed but I'd hate to book it in and have all the bits taken off to find it's fairly clean. I run meth and an oil catch can. Sometimes E85 mixes.

    If you wanted a 2016 B9 Audi A4 with a manual transmission you were out of luck. However, for some reason Audi is giving manual transmission enthusiasts a ray of hope. For 2017 you can get the Audi A4 Quattro with a manual transmission. This is a new 6-speed box according to Audi with a smaller clutch and magnesium pieces. This results in a lighter transmission. You can get a sport package as well which is available exclusively with the manual A4 Quattro. It provides 18 inch wheels, S-Line leather/Alcantara, a flat bottom steering wheel, brushed aluminum pieces, sport suspension, and Audi dynamic steering. This is nice to see from Audi but it would also be nice to see manual S and RS models again. At this point we should probably all just be happy there is any manual available at all. 2017 Audi A4 will be the only six-speed manual transmission with standard all-wheel drive in the luxury sedan segment September 21, 2016 | HERNDON, Virginia The A4s redesigned six-speed manual transmission features an extensive use of magnesium and a smaller clutch, giving the A4 an improved power-to-weight ratio The Sport plus package includes S line interior, dynamic steering, sport adaptive suspension, and 18 wheels with summer tires for maximum performance from an A4 The 2017 A4 with manual transmission sprints from 0-60 in 5.7 seconds, a 0.7 second improvement over the previous generation The 2017 Audi A4 with available six-speed manual transmission and quattro with ultra technology, and exclusive Sport plus package offers the design and performance of an S model in an entry level variant. No other luxury manufacturer in the A4s competitive segment offers a manual transmission sedan with all-wheel drive capability. The greater performance enabled by the newly-redesigned, six-speed manual transmission is due primarily to its spur-gear stage which replaces the shaft to the front-axle differential used on the previous models. The 2017 A4 with six-speed manual sprints from 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds, an improvement of 0.7 seconds over the previous generation. Extensive use of magnesium, combined with open gearwheels, hollow shafts and a smaller clutch, reduce the weight of the transmission by 35.3 pounds compared to its predecessor, and further serve to enhance performance by giving the A4 an improved power-to-weight ratio. Exclusively available on the A4 quattro manual is a Sport plus package featuring flow formed cast aluminum 18 5-double-spoke-star design wheels, available Daytona Gray exterior paint, S line leather/Alcantara interior with sport seats, stainless steel pedal caps, flat-bottom steering wheel and brushed aluminum decorative inlays. Also included is Audi dynamic steering and sport adaptive suspension (-23mm ride height), both of which were previously reserved only for S4 models. The new six-speed manual transmission complements the performance produced by the A4s 2.0 TFSI engine which generates 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. A significant weight savings was achieved across the A4 model-line through the lightweight construction. The front five-link suspension continues to allow for greater steering precision and excellent handling through optimized steering-rack placement direct at wheel centers. The A4 with manual transmission also features a new quattro all-wheel drive system with ultra technology that is optimized for fully-variable torque distribution and efficiency. The new drivetrain utilizes an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch at the rear end of the transmission along with an integrated decoupler in the rear axle differential and weighs 8.8 pounds less than the previous quattro system. This quattro system with ultra technology allows for intelligent, proactive control of the all-wheel drive system to predictively modify the torque application as the driving situation or road conditions require. For customers who do not prefer the traditional manual-shifting driving experience, the 2017 A4 is also available with a seven-speed S tronic dual-clutch automatic transmission with front-wheel drive or available quattro all-wheel drive. Pricing Detail: Model year 2017 A4 Manual starting manufacturer suggested retail prices; on sale fall 2016. MODEL PREMIUM PREMIUM PLUS PRESTIGE A4 quattro manual $39,400 $43,200 48,000 Prices above exclude destination charge ($950), taxes, title, options, and dealer charges. Dealer sets actual price.

See www.fueleconomy.gov for updated information. Your mileage will vary and depends on several factors including your driving habits and vehicle condition.
