    We stopped for the day. This is on 30-31 psi, 9 degrees of timing. We may or may not push more. I think we proved what we needed to prove. Full announcement coming soon. These will easily make 750+....:naughty: Game = Changed

    Well I am running the stealths and I previously ran regular RBS. The dyno was done two weeks ago. All the data is from the same Dyno and running the same PSI so as to compare apples to apples. I know everyone that post dynos on these forums seem to post way higher numbers than I do for some reason but I have a delta that shows a hefty increase and that is all that matters to me. The 534hp 517 tq was my previous dyno on regular RBs that produced my 10.9 130 run at the track. The other two is the delta I have from the new turbos, so take what you want from it. I had timing drops in cylinder 4 because I am still on some old plugs so i have new ones coming and coils too. Terry believes that will fix the issue and get me another 10-15hp but here is my current data. The 606 was the last flash setup we decided to stay with, the power band is really nice for what is produced it also did a two other 608 pulls. As for the track its coming just need weather to cooperate, the car is stupid strong and feels totally different from what i had previously and I am really concerned about dew or a patch of cold track and getting out of shape on a run. Terry helped me a ton with the dyno, I can not say how much he does for people running the JB4. He truly goes more than out of his way to assist his customers. Again take what you want from this and the numbers. I had probably 7-8 runs but I didn't want it to look muddled with lots of lines so just had these two and my previous best dyno mark on regular RBs emailed from the dyno shop.

    Decided to randomly check my compression and got the following numbers. Looks like I'll have to buy an extra engine and have it built. Cylinder 1: 180 Cylinder 2: 180 Cylinder 3: 180 Cylinder 4: 150 Cylinder 5: 180 Cylinder 6: 180 Edit QUOTE

    Got an encrypted tune from Jacob and it solves all the spool problems. Honestly feels like stock twins. I feel like by 2500, it's all there. Thanks Motiv! No logs yet.

    Well, that did not take long. The new B58 motor is impressing. The stock power is considerable and the acceleration is not far off an E92 M3 at least with the M Performance package. Things are going to take some giant steps forward on the platform relatively soon. While tuning on the B58 platform and the respective chassis' it goes into is still in its infancy VTT (Vargas Turbocharger Technologies) is already attempting to get ahead of the curve by working on a B58 turbo upgrade. Tuners have told us the factory B58 turbo housing seems larger than the N55. That means this upgrade has serious potential. Time will tell but rest assured turbo upgrades will be on the market for owners that itch for more power. This of course should apply to all 40i models.

    The past two years of Formula 1 have been rather boring. Why? Mercedes dominance. Nobody really could compete in 2014 although 2015 saw the competition improve. Regardless, Mercedes won all but three races in 2015 and many say their PU106A engine offers a big advantage. That does not mean Mercedes is standing pat. Here is what AMG engine maestro Andy Cowell had to say: If you thought Mercedes did not have room to improve guess again. They were already in the 900 horse range last year so if they squeeze out more 1000 horsepower hybrid Formula 1 powertrains will be reality. The question is, will anyone pose a threat to Mercedes dominance in 2016? Source

    As you likely already know Syvecs spent considerable time developing a standalone ECU for the Lamborghini and Audi V10 platform. That now includes the new Lamborghini Huracan which interestingly features factory dual injection with port and direct fuel injection. That means the capability of the Syvecs box to control 20 injectors at once makes a whole lot of sense. With the older V10 R8 or Gallardo one could add port fuel injectors. With the new Huracan there is a need to control port fuel injectors and direct fuel injectors right off the bat. The basic specs are the same as before: - 12 on the fly adjustable maps vis OEM controls - Flex fuel control - Cruise control - Rolling anti-lag - Launch control system which builds boost at the line - Onboard datalogging - Adjustable traction control system vis OEM controls The Syvecs system is tested on a twin turbo Huracan in the video below. It runs an impressive 9.73 @ 146.97 1/4 mile. It definitely is working and working well. Pricing is not stated as they are shipping pre-orders but with the full list of features below, it's worth whatever they charge: • Live Tuning of every aspect of the engine’s calibration, including signals sent to the TCM and 4wd • Ability to select desired engine map, boost level, traction and launch control levels via steering wheel controls • Fully adjustable Launch control with Anti-lag strategies and Ramp in Maps • Full Variable Valve Timing control • Closed loop Dual Lambda Control using OEM lambdas • Flex Fuel control • Cruise Control add on • Control the OEM Direct Injectors and additional 10 port injectors for high power installations • Fully adjustable closed loop boost control with launch level adjustments and trims for turbo speed, air charge, engine coolant temp, exhaust gas temperatures etc • Monitor and trimming of exhaust gas temperatures • Built in data logging using a market leading analysis software of up to 8 hours, with data rates at up to 1000hz • Rolling Antilag / Pit lane limiter strategies, great for building boost on a roll • Antitheft and valet modes • Super fast connection via RJ45 Ethernet port for live tuning anywhere in the world or even remotely if on track if connected to a wireless unit. • Adjustable traction control strategies based on lateral g, steering angle and/or individual wheel speed monitoring. • 4 programmable and selectable target slip maps. An immediate torque reduction can be applied by the ECU via ignition retard or a fuel cut. • Configurable Engine Safety Trips on all important parameters like oil temperature, oil pressure. • Fuel pump control of both main Direct Injection pumps, and sub pumps, as well as Relative fuel pressure monitoring and limiting in the event of fuel pressure dropping on boost. • 4 different Pedal to Throttle Angle maps with multipliers for different parameters e.g. speed. Again adjustable via steering wheel buttons • Configurable individual cylinder closed loop knock control, to suit any cylinder modification with adjustments to frequency, windows for listening and gains for each cylinder. Ability to trigger full cylinder shutdown in severe knock conditions. • Ability to change torque levels and demand levels sent to the DSG Ecu for changing clutch pressure and Pull away drivability • Change torque reduction levels on shifts. Essential for very high power Huracans where the Oem levels of reductions are not enough with the added torque from a Twin Turbo Kit • Ability to change Torque ramp in after launch • Change throttle blip requests to match your torque band. Especially useful on oversized turbo installations. • Run up to 7bar map sensors • Control high or low impedance injectors • Change injector end angle to ensure injection point is properly calibrated • Ability to fit any type of external sensor to monitor and trigger safety trips from anything from crank case pressure to damper position • Ability to use any size DBW throttle body e.g. Chevrolet LS7 • Wet and Dry – Wet and Dry nitrous control with ability to drive solenoids directly and control n20 heaters via pressure monitoring • Ability to control any external vehicle features based on sensor inputs e.g. Adjustable rear wing linked to G force or exhaust control valves • Connect any race series dash or even one of our partners’ Touchscreen CANBUS adjustment /display units • View any input live with built in scope up to 1000hz

    This is officially the 1/4 mile record for the C7 S6 and S7 4.0 TFSI V8 platforms. A full weight S7 with the APR Stage II ECU tune on race gas with their catless downpipes on race gas ran 11.01 @ 124.61 and a lighter S6 with similar mods on 93 octane ran 11.38 @ 121.81 in the 1/4 mile. That is the kind of performance one expects from an RS6 or RS7. The thing is, you can swap C7 RS6/RS7 turbos onto the C7 S6/S7 4.0 TFSI V8 motor. By doing so, you can get the S6 and S7 to match a tuned RS6 and RS7. However, it does cost more than a tune and downpipes at roughly $10k. For those not looking to spend more or put more stress on the S6/S7 dual clutch drivetrain this APR Stage II upgrade with TCU tuning and downpipes may fit the bill. We will have more details with pricing when the products are officially released.

    A discussion on the BenzBoost forums brought up the question of how much power the W.3 M157 turbo upgrade from Weistec makes. A member pointed to the upgrade only making a bit more power than their stock turbo upgrades which hit 684 rwhp. Now, the problem is not the turbo upgrade not making more power over the stock turbos but octane limitations. 91 octane California pump gas is the limiting factor. As a matter of fact, way back in 2013, Weistec demonstrated 700 wheel horsepower with their M157 turbo upgrade on race gas. Weistec sent this Dynojet graph to BenzBoost of their W.3 M157 turbo upgrade on race gas: We will get clarification on why the peak torque figure is a lower 688 lb-ft of torque at the wheels instead of 730 lb-ft at the wheels as previously shown but we suspect it is due to not having the Weistec M157 cooling upgrade. Regardless, if one wants to get the most of the W.3 M157 turbo upgrade before the W.4 hits, race gas and cooling upgrades are a must.

    This definitely caught our eye. Everybody is trying hard to stand out these days with wheel finishes. Some people go gold or some bright attention grabbing color. This is still definitely attention grabbing but somehow the clear coat combo with the copper softens it. On a black car this would likely be out of this world and gorgeous. So who is going to try it?

    I'm putting my car back to stock, to trade it in, so I'm looking for a set of stockers. As long as they don't smoke, and rattle that much, I'm interested. Should clarify that this is an e90 335i.
