    Looking for some input as to why my logged timing is hitting 11 degrees advance at 5600 rpm. :think: My car typically starts to knock above 10 degrees in this area.....so I capped the main ignition table values at 9 degrees of advance to keep below the knock window. So I am kind of surprised to see my timing advancing above the main table values I set in tunerpro. Car is a 2008 135i running a custom backend flash stacked with piggy. Running 100% meth and 94 octane. Piggy timing has been set to zero correction....so flash should be controlling timing values exclusively. Can anyone offer any insight as to what other tables may be causing this? Some form of octane adaptation maybe?

    Used, no dents, dings or gouges. Typical heat discoloration has approximately 20k miles on them. These fit amazing on the 135i they cam off of. Located on Long Island NY asking 425 shipped

    Big numbers here from a Sound Performance built E46 M3. This is hardly the first 1000+ WHP E46 M3 we have seen from them as last year an E46 M3 they built running a Precision 7675 put down 1071 horsepower to the rear wheels on the same Mustang dyno. Well they are doing 1000+ with a Precision 6870 on Ethanol using a ProEFI 128 for engine management. Pushing 34 psi of boost results in 1046 rear wheel horsepower and 865 lb-ft of torque at the rear wheels: Impressive? No doubt about it. The car has a nitrous kit as well but the nitrous was not used on these runs. Here is the power and torque at the various boost levels: 614whp 506wtq @ 13psi 784whp 625wtq @ 21psi 967whp 738wtq @ 31psi 1046whp 865wtq @ 34psi Here are the build specs: SP Built 10:1 CR Engine Saad Racing Turbo Kit w/ SP 3" Boost Activated Exhaust Cutout Saad Racing E85 Fuel System Saad Racing Intake Manifold w/ LS3 DBW Throttle Body SP Direct-Port Nitrous Kit ProEFI Pro128 Flex Fuel Standalone EMS OS Giken Twin Disc Clutch Yet another 1000+ wheel horsepower S54 from Sound Performance and Saad Racing.

    Does this really need to be explained to people? Well, it clearly needs to be explained to some people that parking on the beach is a bad idea. You know, because of things like rising tides and what happens to wet sand under thousands of pounds of pressure. This Scion FR-S owner didn't get it through their head so BoostAddict is doing yet another public service announcement. This Mercedes GL owner apparently thought they were invincible with all wheel drive saving them from any problems on the beach. You can't really use the Mercedes 4Matic if the car is buried in the sand though. You can't make this stuff up:

    Autocar had a chance here to do an excellent comparison. EVO just the other day compared the AMG GT S to the Porsche 911 Turbo. This network pointed out that the AMG GT S is positioned more against the 911 models below the turbo such as the GTS Autocar uses. On paper, it makes sense. The 911 GTS costs $115,195. The AMG GTS S costs $129,900. It is clearly positioned against the 911 'S' models and the standard AMG GT will go against the standard Carrera. With its twin turbo 503 horsepower V8 the AMG GT blows the GTS with its 430 horsepower naturally aspirated 3.8 liter flat-6 out of the water. Just how badly does it blow it away? Well, Autocar had the opportunity to show us with a drag race in the opening frames of the video having the cars set up for it but instead cuts away and does not focus on it. Pardon the pun but they blew it. One has to wonder why they even bothered to line the cars up in the first place. Instead the video focuses on the vehicles on the track. Wonderful, right? Well, not really as there is no laptime comparison. Just like the drag race in the opening Autocar blows it on the track by providing no performance testing data. EVO actually provided laptimes in addition to the typical endless British babbling about the subjective. This 'Head to Head' has no actual head to head competition between the cars in it. Every opportunity to provide it is missed. It's just plain garbage.

    hi on N54 engine with x6 35i, i only have this 3100 boost-pressure control, deactivation code showing (no other code coming) and cannot clear or delete it. no leak on any connection. is this could be solenoid pressure converter or wastegate? i replaced both intake and exhaus solenoid and HPFP. i forgot, this code will show up everyday when start the engine and will off when i drive for a while and turn off then engine and restart the engine. when error code show up, the car run poorly at low speed but high speed is seem very smooth. thank you so much for your help...

    Well, that was quick. Last month an APR tuned US Spec MKVII Volkswagen Golf R went 12.011 @ 113.44 in the 1/4 mile. This network speculated the Golf R is an easy 11 second car which based on that result and that ROW (rest of the world) Golf R's have run 11's it is not exactly a difficult conclusion to reach. With the addition of an intake to the Stage I APR tune this Golf R hit 11.962 @ 114.62 in the 1/4 mile. The 60 foot time is 1.778 which is solid but will see improvement with time as well. The fuel used is not specified but this is not a race gas tune. Regardless, yes, the MKVII Golf R is an easy 11 second car with bolt on modifications.

    On paper the Nissan GTR has all the advantages here. Don't get the wrong idea, the Audi RS7 is a pretty quick car especially when tuned. We have seen an APR Stage I tuned RS7 go 10.69 @ 131 in the 1/4 mile. On race gas the car has gone as quick and fast as 10.388 @ 133.54. Both cars are very tuneable with their twin turbocharged powerplants sending power to all four wheels. The thing is unlike the automatic RS7 the GTR has a dual clutch transmission. It is also roughly 600 pounds lighter. With bolt ons and ethanol it is capable of more power while weighing less and having the quicker shifting transmission. How does this play out? As it should with the GTR easily putting bus lengths on the RS7. Even if the RS7 comes back with race gas and a more aggressive tune this GTR is still going to win.
