    The McLaren P1 versus the Porsche 918 Spyder. Both of these cars have carbon fiber tubs and body panels. Both have small displacement, high revving V-8s packed between their passenger compartments and rear axles. Both use twin-clutch transmissions, carbon ceramic brakes, and active aerodynamics. Both have roughly 900 hp. Both are plug-in hybrids. And today, with the help of pro racing driver Randy Pobst, we find out which one is fastest around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

    Very good summary of where we are right now without bias. Scaling can work and its the only way for more power now but ideally for maximum DME protection, it should know the real unscaled load values being targeted.

    I still dont think people realize how much behind the scenes R&D goes into making a big twin kit for this car. none of these guys recently sprouting around with their own in house custom twin setups have any jump on some of the companies that have been working on these ideas for YEARS. Imagine spending months working on a part just to have it become obsolete because of a fitment issue overlooked caused by another section of your own turbo kit. Or the angle at which the turbo is sitting doesn't allow for a pipe you need or causes a bend to sharp for proper flow. Most people working on it themselves would bite the bullet and make a tight compromise, that is something you cant do as a company. The little things overlooked by most is what makes some kits good whilst others are GREAT.

    This is my first time getting a blackstone oil analysis and just wanted to see what you guys thought and put it out here for reference. My car is a 2011 E90 335i so its the first year with the N55 and it has about 50k miles on it. The last 10k miles since I have bought it, it has had the Cobb stage 1 aggressive flash always filled with 93 octane with no other mods. I have had the car for almost a year and a half and I bought it off a lease return and it is CPO. The oil change history from the dealership looked like they just followed the CBS and didn't change the oil for 15-20k miles (maybe they changed it more often but just not at the dealership but who knows) so I was a curious to see if there was any abnormal wear and wanted to see the actual condition of the oil after about 5k miles on it. I drive it pretty hard and like most people I was not convinced that the BMW recommended service interval was good enough for our turbo engines. Another note is all 4700 miles on this oil was in the extreme cold this winter in MN so I don't know if that makes any difference. Let me know what any of the more experienced people think, it looks like they were just comparing my numbers to N54's but it seems like it should be an ok comparison but I am no expert. Do you think I could run the oil for longer next oil change? The hot and cold viscosity looks good and the flash point is still very high with no coolant or gas contamination (even though the sample was taken cold at the dealership) so it still seems good to me. Thanks for any input!

    Sure, it's easy to run more boost. But the fact that you aren't hiding it from the DME is completely false. Running a 3.5bar or higher sensor and rescaling voltage "technically" allows you to tune higher boost levels, but it is just a stop gap, and definitely not a great way of doing it. The reason behind it being a bad idea hides in the hundreds of tables not yet available ;) For example, the knock factor tables y-axis is mg/stk of airflow (a maf reading). Since the n54 does not have a maf sensor, this is a calculated value (based on even more tables). There are at least 30 more tables with mg/stk as an axis. Since the modeling for this is based off the stock turbos (there's even tables for modeling turbine and compressor flow), much of it is already skewed even when upgrading the inlets on stock turbos, let alone upgraded hybrids, or the biggest change, a single turbo kit. Couple this with rescaling the MAP voltage, and you can see where the DME may calculate it is in the 200mg/stk of airflow range and only want to pull 1* of timing, when it is actually over 500mg/stk of airflow and should be pulling much more timing. 20psi on the stockers is a lot less airflow than 20psi on a large single turbo, and rescaling voltages just widens the difference. Does it work? Sure. And it's pretty much the only option for now, along with the JB4 (which is also subject to the same issues detailed above), until countless more hours are spent digging in to the tables and assembly code. Luckily the motors are very strong :)

    That is good to know. All you did was a blanket and wrapped the DP? Heat reflective tape on the cover?

    That 996TT :naughty: You guys do far more than I had thought. Pretty cool that an owner could drop off a DSM, 996TT, and R35 GTR all at the same shop for serious motor and fab work.

    I pick mine up in 2 weeks. I don't plan on anything dramatic, tune, downpipes, debating meth injection. Leaning towards the BMS route, as I used them for my 535i back in the day. Who knows though, I'll probably drive stock for a while to get used to the car for a bit and hopefully by then, it'll have some bigger/better gains with mods.
