    Tial has the nice SS turbine housings and some other tech, FP brings the billet CHRA, and HTA / HTZ comp wheel aero.

    Forced Performance has been taking Garret turbos and putting custom wheels on them for a long time. I guess they wanted to cut some overhead from having to buy the Garret turbos and just make their own. Tial has been making Vband turbine housings for a long time. Xona now makes the whole turbo, CHRA and everything.

    Thanks. Why was it necessary to do a join venture? Does Xona offer something either doesn't? I guess I don't see the purpose.

    Xona is a joint venture between Forced Performance and Tial.

    You'll have plenty of other options here with far less asshole to turbo ratio coming soon.

    the NGK 97506 plugs you edited in there for the S55/N63TU are an interesting choice, but there doesnt seem to be much info on them. I do recall one of the vargas turbo cars was running the S55 oem plugs (i think it was turbocripple, that 10 second white 135i), but im unsure. Curious to try the gtr spark plugs since you said youve used them for a long time now with success.

    The only thing iridium is used for is longevity. Copper has the best conductivity but it erodes a lot quicker. Iridiums didnt become a thing until OEM's started jamming engines into small places making it very difficult to change plugs. Lets face it, no one wants to pay 5x hours shop rate for $20 worth of plugs. Iridium's only purpose was to go the distance and last 100K miles. So either way if it gives a good spark and only lasts 20K miles then who cares at $36 a set. I use to change plugs in the 3kgt every oil change. Granted they were non resistor $3/ea plugs. Good find on the pricing!

    I'm somewhat confused by all these names. I see guys saying they have a Xona Rotor / Tial setup. Is it a Tial turbo? Is it Xona? Is Xona its own thing?

    Yep, Motiv kits are with Xona and i was thinking for one too, but they told me at least 4 weeks and i was in a hurry. But mine turbo is with the Xona comp wheel and Tial housing only the CHRA is Garrett, but with upgrades exactly like Xona, only its not billet. The tuning is fine, but not done on the dyno, but on the road(i don't like the behaviour of flashes made on the dyno how performs on the road). The dyno operator just screw the rpm readings. And on the road the full boost is much earlier, i will post road logs.

    BimmerBoost can relate to member @SVH who has been waiting a while on Gintani to finish his project. What is the project? A stroked S65 V8 with twin turbochargers in an E93 M3 convertible. As the convertible model is quite a bit heavier than the coupe the extra displacement totalling roughly 4.5 liters will help quite a bit. These are the specs: CSF radiator and Oil cooler, Gintani Oil pan, sleeved, 4.5 liter, stock comp, OEM main and rod bearings coated with WPC to GTS specs, ARP hardened head bolts, 5 point head work. @SVH is keeping the compression stock which will make for very good spool and driveability down low. He is not going for all out horsepower but a fun and reliable package with a ton more torque than stock. The car is still being broken in and we do not have any dyno figures yet but it will be interesting to see the torque and power curves on this motor when all is said and done. There are videos of it being started and revved below. It looks like Gintani will finally be delivering a built S65 with turbos but we have all heard that before. Hopefully @SVH gets what he paid for. The question now is, where is BimmerBoost's twin turbo built motor E92 M3?

    This turbo looks awesome.. I can imagine with some fine tuning and a proper dyno run it'll be hitting full boost even earlier. Why isn't anyone running Xona rotors yet? My friends are Iroz Motorsport in NV, outside of Vegas have been building ridiculous Audi 5-cyls for a while now. They've put a ton of development into their TTRS 2.5 kits and have had amazing results with the Xona stuff. http://www.irozmotorsport.com/iroz-motorsport-2-5tfsi-ims500-1000-turbo-kits/ here it is destroying a McLaren P1 too... Great work OP -- excited to see this thing come along! Sounds good too.

    It does not take much to get the C7 Z06 into the 9's. It can be done for $2500. This is yet another C7 Z06 running 9's and what these cars have in common is the 8-speed automatic 8L90 transmission. That is a big part of the 9 second recipe. Beyond the automatic transmission this is all that was needed to top 140 miles per hour of trap speed: -IW 18% lower pulley with gates HD belt -Halltech CAI -Corsa X pipe -HorsePowerAddicts install and tuning -93/100 mix Tune, pulley, X-Pipe, and a cold air intake. Just your basic bolt ons right there. Pushing the relatively small factory blower further probably won't pay as large of dividends in summer weather but some basic bolt ons and a tune are cheaper than replacing the factory blower entirely. Nobody is going to complain about these results:

    That table is a waste. It is an air target for the engine when cold, in stratified combustion mode, which isn't used.

    Right - good example. I see teams try and reach block/down block these really good 3 techniques all the time and it's just insanity. ARZ consistently tried to pull Jon Cooper and have the tackle scrape down to reach block Aaron Donald last year. It was comical; Donald was in the backfield unblocked in an instant. If you just watch the play once on TV, you'll likely just see the gap Donald came racing through and figure the guard got smoked. But in reality, the guard was trying to pull around the center, and the tackle couldn't get down fast enough. I'd actually argue that's the coaches fault. And it gets way more nuanced, a pulling guard is just a good example since it's a bit more visible if you know what you are looking for. Gets even tougher at the collegiate level since so many of these guys are just asked to sprint wide on screens or quick/angle set on passing plays since the ball comes out so fast. A bunch of these dudes have never lined up in a 3 point stance or taken a vertical set in their lives.

    Thankyou. Have you had chance to play with the WGDC floor value yet? I'm going to try lowering it a little. I imagine it'll just make the exhaust note sound a little different while cruising.
