    As many know shortly after finishing my built N54 e92 project (LINK), the car was stolen. While I was able to recover the car, it was severely damaged (body, suspension, interior, wiring, engine, etc.) and totalled. As this was my second E92, I've decided not to get a third and have moved on to something else. Nothing beats the balance of performance, looks, and daily driveability in my opinion. But, enough of dwelling on the negative. Here is a quick look back at the Ghost aka the Snow Leopard: (Mobile users can't see the embedded video can click here: http://tinyurl.com/zdskq2w). Special thanks again to BMS, VTT, Payam, CKI and the normal cast of characters here. I'll still post on IG www.instagram.com/the_ghost_enthusiast with projects that I may or may not have already started. :music-rockout: Cheers!

    Hey guys, We got the white car (6MT) back up and running strong and thought we'd revisit some GC numbers for your viewing pleasure. Car specs: Built Short block Stock head with bad valve guide seals GC turbos BMS DP's Custom Exhaust dual 3" into 4" Shotgun Single Barrel VTT Rear Silicone intake Custom VTT front intake VTT DCI Custom VTT Catch can set up EOS Intake manifold with built in PI Custom LPFP set up 100% E85 for fuel MHD tune by V8bait FLASH ONLY ADE Intercooler AEM AQ1 data logging set up with Dual EGT, Dual BP, Manifold Pressure, FMIC In / out temps 6MT (4th gear logs) Numbers: Now, on to the numbers. Note that we're referencing boost from the AEM logs (screen shots attached) in lieu of MHD reading it in the charge pipe, which isn't accurate. The AEM map sensor is calibrated and tested to be accurate. Datazap of course references the MHD values for those who care. 765 was made on 29.3 psi at redline 740 was made on 28.5 psi at redline 693 was made on 25.4 psi at redline 655 was made on 22.8 psi at redline Dyno Charts: 765 whp dyno: 740 whp dyno: All 4 dynos on one graph: AEM Screenshots: 765 whp AEM Screenshot: 740 whp AEM Screenshot: 693 whp AEM Screenshot: 655 whp AEM Screenshot: These numbers speak for themselves, but any comments from competitors or their pawns about these reaching a bottle neck around 650 whp should be recognized as the marketing gibberish that it is.

    As some of you know we have recently been producing the ADE Single Turbo Kit Version2. What is different in Version2? Well, its really just some small changes to the original kit to fit the larger S-cover Turbos. This not only allows for improved airflow from the S-cover, but also opens the doors to a larger selection of turbos that fit. The New PTE 6062gen2, 6266gen2, 6466gen2, and 6870gen2 all fit with the new ADE V2 ST kit! Along with the S-cover, we have increased the turbo intake tube to 3.5” and paired it with a large K&N filter. Key features: -Bottom mount design is both efficient and keeps heat away from temperature sensitive components -Precision turbocharger… highest power producing turbo per millimeter -All quality namebrand components -No cutting or need to relocate anything (i.e. coolant reservoir) -Downpipe outlet and compressor outlet are in stock locations so any stock or factory replacement exhaust and intercooler attach with no modifications needed -included urethane dampened engine mount (usually not included when comparing other kits) -all new gaskets, hardware, and hose to complete installation… no running to the auto parts store or dealership for the nickel/dime parts -detailed and illustrated install instructions Included in the base kit ( “Hot Side Kit” ) -AD Engineering Stainless Steel tubular manifold (ceramic coating included!) -Precision 6062Gen2 or 6266Gen2 BB T4 Turbo -3” Stainless Steel Downpipe -Tial MVR Wastegate -1.75” Stainless Steel Dumptube -Turbo Hot Side Intercooler Charge Tube -3.5” 6061 Turbo Intake -K&N Air Filter -Stainless Steel and insulated Heat Shield -Urethane Engine Mount -Coolant Block Manifold and Pipe -Coolant Blockoff Plugs -Oil Drain Plug -Turbo Oil Feed Block Fitting and SS Braided Line -Turbo Oil Return Fitting and SS Braided Line -New OEM Exhaust Manifold Donuts, Studs, and copper nuts -All Necessary Couplers, Clamps, hoses, gaskets, and hardware In celebration of this badass kit we are going to offer the Bimmerboost members a special group buy on five ADE ST kits. These ADE V2 kits will be available to the first five Bimmerboost members that make deposits. The group buy cost for this kit is $5499 and available in your choice of 6062gen2, 6266gen2, or 6466gen2. The 6870gen2 is available for an additional cost. That’s $900 off of retail, but we’re not stopping there…. We will also offer 10% off any additional ADE items that the member purchases at the time of the ST kit! What a great way to get 10% off our Port Injection, 1000hp Intercooler, Engine Mounts, Rear Brake Kit, and Chargepipe. Email me at andy@ad-eng.net if you would like to take advantage of this great deal.

    So, it's been a few weeks now running these bad boys. And all I can really say is WOW. Going from my dying turbos to these was obviously a night and day difference, but where these puppies are shining are in the top end. They just don't stop. I'd like to first off thank those involved for helping bring everything to life. Steve @ European Auto Source (Has done all my aftermarket install work on this car, and has provided unparalleled support in terms of sorting out issues and getting installs done in neck breaking time) Jesse @ PURE Turbos -- Aside from obviously providing me with these bad boys, not only tuned my car remotely while dynoing at EAS, but also provided tons of support outside of the scope of what he should have provided. Customer service level definitely over 9000! Steve @ Fuel-It Jake @ Motiv Little overview of my car 2010 335i 6AT PURE STG2 Hybrids ER Competition FMIC w/CF Shroud ER Competition Oil Cooler TFT Inlets w/2in adapter for turbos Vargas Hotside Silicone CP Macht Schnell 3in kittyless pipes Vanguard v2 exhaust Motiv Port-Injection BMS Port-Injection control Fuel-It STG3 Dual LPFP Fuel-It Upgraded Lines from tank to engine bay JB4 G5 ISO w/anti-lag MHD e85 BEF for Hybrid Turbos/PI using 100% E85 There's a long list of other mods I have done but don't really pertain to power, if you'd like to know I'll be happy include them in the thread. Currently also have-- WaveTrac LSD DSS 1000HP Rated Axles Defiv Diff Lockdown Brace Suspension overhaul and much more. Down to the good stuff. Unfortunately I don't have logs, still waiting on Steve to email them to me. I have video of the dyno process I will upload and link to this thread. With the help of Jesse's remote tuning we were able to get it up to 630WHP. Shop temps were at 92* / 26% humidity. At 26/27PSI we put down 624.9WHP, consequently we tried upping it to 30PSI and only netted 630WHP. Unfortunately there was just too much heat soak and we decided to call it a night at that. Had an opportunity to really put it through its paces on the streets at 26PSI @ 70* outside temps, and man does this thing fucking move! Unfortunately, I'm already getting trans slippage so 2nd and 3rd are limited while the remaining gears go to 26PSI. I have some videos, crappy short cell videos, that I can post of runs with various vehicles. I do have plans to go back to EAS to redyno when temps are much cooler and hopefully turn the boost all the way up. Definitely have plans to beat Lucas' numbers on the dyno. Sorry, Lucas! And hopefully with the help of Jesse @ PURE we will achieve some great numbers with finer tuning. As for transmission woes--salvation is on the way. I have on order one of the beta units of Propulsive-Dynamics built transmissions which I should have shortly. Once that's done and installed at EAS, should be able to get it to the track and put it through its paces as well and see how it performs in the 1/4 and overall street usage. More updates to this page to come, logs to be added, videos, and pictures. Thanks for taking the time to read. As far as satisfaction with the Turbos, bar non PURE is the way to go if you're deciding on a hybrid turbo setup. Hands down best customer service, great price, and a beautifully performing product with plenty of support. Updates soon!

    $134,200 for a performance car with an emphasis on track performance better result in impressive track performance. The M4 GTS makes a big statement with its MSRP but does not back it up where it matters. As a matter of fact, the Ford Mustang GT350R and the Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE both top it around Laguna Seca. This measured result is from MotorTrend's own testing. The M4 GTS laps Laguna Seca in 1:37.66. The Shelby Mustang GT350R is 1.6 seconds quicker. That is an eternity. It's long enough to do the math as to how much money someone buying a Shelby GT350R at $62,070 saved over an M4 GTS. What makes this truly spectacular is not only is the Mustang half the price it has a naturally aspirated high revving engine. Ford is beating BMW at their own game with a hand tied behind their back. Honestly, as a BMW M fan forced to sit back and watch the as M division chokes from spending so much time sniffing their own farts this is highly satisfying. Is it a wake up call to BMW? It should be considering that not only did the M4 GTS get obliterated by the Shelby GT350R the $44k Camaro SS 1LE edged the M4 GTS as well. What is the 1LE? Just an option package for the Camaro: Camaro SS 1LE Highlights 6.2L LT1 V8 rated at 455 horsepower, and 6-speed manual transmission (automatic transmission not available) Magnetic Ride Control Segment-exclusive electronic limited-slip differential with 3.73 ratio Unique forged-aluminum wheels with 285/30ZR20 front tires and 305/30ZR20 rear tires Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires with a compound and construction developed exclusively for Camaro Brembo brakes with new 6-piston monobloc front red calipers and 2-piece rotors Track cooling package with engine oil, differential and transmission coolers Suede steering wheel with shorter-throw shifter Dual-mode exhaust system RECARO front seats with aggressive bolsters optimized for shifting and steering comfort Satin black hood, front mirrors and unique 3-piece rear spoiler Available Performance Data Recorder What is the point of a $135k+ M car built for the track that can not top anyone in its price range let alone cars at a fraction of the cost? The M4 GTS does not need to be a world beater (like the cheaper Viper ACR) but it needs to be better than this to be taken seriously. Does anyone even take the M division seriously anymore? We will have the full results when MotorTrend posts their 2016 Best Driver's Car videos but it's clear that not only does the M4 GTS not live up to the hype, it's an abject failure.

    pits200 started a thread GC Install on XI Update in N54
    Couple updates, install should hopefully be done in the next few days. Oil pan gasket was replaced, you can see the how much heat this engine produces. While I never had to add oil during the 5k mile change intervals, it was worth it to fix the problem while replacing the turbos. You can also see the ridiculous design of the axle running through the oil pan, not sure if that's a common design among other car makers or limited to BMW. I have the PI kit installed but don't plan on running for a few weeks till I can tune for straight 93, then get an e25 tune runnign. Once I get those tunes squared away I'll have Trebila help with a 100% e85 tune. I'll be excited to see what the upgraded transmissions can do once there are a few miles on the kits as I imagine to be needing one in the near future.

    There is no stopping the Viper ACR. It is a track animal bent on destroying whatever dares come across its path. The M4 GTS? The Shelby GT350R? The Porsche 911 Carrera S? The new Acura NSX? The McLaren 570S? All simply lambs led to the slaughter. Emphasis on slaughter. Just look at what the Viper ACR did around Laguna Seca in the hands on Randy Pobst: 1. Dodge Viper ACR - 1:31.58 2. Audi R8 V10 Plus - 1:34.23 3. McLaren 570S - 1:34.58 4. Mercedes-AMG GT S - 1:35.30 5. Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R - 1:36.11 6. Acura NSX - 1:36.36 7. Porsche 911 Carrera S - 1:36.44 8. Nissan GT-R - 1:37.08 9. BMW M4 GTS - 1:37.66 10. Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE - 1:37.78 11. Jaguar F-Type SVR - 1:38.75 12. Aston Martin V12 Vantage S - 1:41.77 It is almost a full three seconds faster than the next car up which is the Audi R8 V10 Plus. That is a beatdown. The Viper ACR is just on another level and it's amazing this car does not get more respect. Now, it is interesting to contrast MotorTrend's results at Laguna Seca to Car and Driver's results at VIR (Virginia International Raceway). The R8 V10 showed very weakly in Car and Driver's hands yet it is the second quickest car here with Randy Pobst at the wheel. When we say Car and Driver's hands we mean their staff who simply is not on Randy's level when it comes to driving prowess. Car and Driver's Lightning Lap is a good comparison but it is not as scientific as MotorTrend's (which also isn't perfect) due to taking place on multiple days with multiple drivers. MotorTrend uses Pobst at Laguna Seca with the cars running on the same day. That is a big difference. As is the fact VIR rewards power in the lap time more than the shorter and tighter Laguna Seca. What do we learn? That the M4 GTS get its ass handed to it by the Mustang GT350R yet again. It loses at VIR, it loses at Laguna Seca, and it is simply safe to say the GT350R is the superior track performer anywhere. Yes, at a fraction of the price. When you bring the M4 GTS asking price into the argument the car looks like a joke. Is its laptime respectable? Sure, if beating a Camaro SS that comes in at less than 1/3 of the money by a tenth of a second is respectable. The AMG GT S is cheaper, the 911 Carrera S is cheaper, the Nissan GT-R is cheaper, the Mustang GT350R is cheaper, and the Viper ACR is cheaper. What do they all have in common? They are all better performance cars than the M4 GTS. The Mercedes-AMG GT S deserves honorable mention beating the stout GT350R as well as the incredible new Porsche 911 Carrera S. Considering the GT S is not even anywhere near as hardcore as the GT model line gets, that is impressive. Enjoy the videos of the laps below with impressions from Pobst. The winner of the competition will be announced shortly. If we were to guess, the Carrera S is the favorite.

    This is the same BMW F80 M3 that recently broke into the 10's on the factory S55 turbochargers. In case you were wondering what kind of power it took to get there here is the answer. 585 horsepower at the wheels along with over 600 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. It looks like two different maps were tested as on the lower power figure runs the peak torque is substantially higher. Unfortunately, the full graphs are not posted so we can not get a look at the entire curve. Perhaps @Mike_f80nyc can post them. Still, impressive numbers. Especially the torque figures topping over 600 lb-ft at the wheels with a JB4 and methanol on the stock turbos. To BimmerBoost's knowledge, these are the highest power and torque figures from the factory turbos with bolt on modifications.

    It's been quite a while since the BimmerBoost.com E92 M3 was discussed. Where we last left off the vehicle was making more power and torque than any E9X M3 in the world and setting records. As a quick refresher, the car featured a built 10.0:1 compression motor with a sleeved S65 V8 block and a Vortech YSI blower. Yes, this build has taken years. Through the missteps, mocking, long nights, fabrication, tuning, and records set the S65 engine platform was pushed very far forward despite how uncooperative it is. Let's not forget this car made more torque than anyone else has up to today: And it also set the E9X 1/2 mile record with a 173.07 pass. This angered a lot of people in the community and let's just be honest ESS-Tuning in particular. ESS with their 'record setting' VT3 car at the same event as the BimmerBoost.com M3 could not even get close to its trap speed. At a subsequent event where the BimmerBoost.com M3 did not run ESS and the VT3 owner cheated by backing up as far as possible to get a running start to inflate the trap speed. It took them several manipulated tries like this but finally they eked out a trap speed a mile per hour higher. Yes, they cheated, because that's what it is and that is how these people are. They actually take pride in posting contrived records. This is all being mentioned to show you just how hard the car was pushed and what took place. The stock trans slipped as you can see in the dyno with the Vortech YSI at 18.5 psi of boost. If it held, just do the math. Even with 'only' 554 lb-ft of torque at the wheels well before the torque peak this is still the torque record today on the S65 platform. Do the math for the redline: 8400 rpm x 554 lb-ft / 5252 = 886 wheel horsepower. A conservative 886 mind you as the torque is still rising as the YSI really hit its sweet spot toward redline. It's a real shame we never saw a clean Dynojet run but the fact is nobody else was within 150+ whp of this car. Unfortunately, Dodson at the time did not have the DCT transmission upgrades available it does now and Kris Gagnon at SSP (South Side Performance) screwed this project over delaying it by over a year with his inability to deliver a working product and misleading me while utilizing my transmission as a model to get discs made overseas he could sell and now does sell. Showing this person's true colors will come in another article at a later date. So what happened? We pushed too hard on a platform BMW cut costs on. The fact of the matter is the S65 V8 is a weak design for boost unless tremendously reinforced. BMW loves to tout how light the motor is and how it is lighter than the iron block S54 it replaces despite offering more displacement and being a V8 but the S54 block is not only stronger it is built better. The S65 aluminum-silicon makeup while being light is very weak. Combine this with tight bore spacing, little to no material to work with, and a poor oiling system resulting from cost cutting going from the S85 V10 oiling system to the S65 V8 and you get a cheap, mass produced motor. The goal is quite simply to build it as cheaply as possible while still making it past the warranty period. Ask E9X M3 guys who did not get their bearings replaced and now are paying the price how they feel about BMW engine quality. It's amazing BMW gets away with this. While many things in this motor were upgraded and it handled more than anyone had ever thrown at the S65 we simply went too far because the goal was not to manipulate circumstances to set some bogus records that idiots on forums slurp up but to raise the performance envelope to unforeseen levels. No, it was not a tuning issue. Look at the pictures of motor below. The pistons look practically brand new. The problem was that the main bearings spun: Why? Tons of stress. A Vortech YSI is a monster blower that requires a ton of power to spin. This was not a build with a new crank as the displacement was kept the same. Increasing the boost only exacerbates problems. Things could have been done slightly differently to get it to work but you're always going to be putting more stress on the motor with something like a YSI at high boost than a V3si with low boost. Just the pulley setup alone is completely different and further off the front of the motor which doesn't help reduce various stresses. The other issue is the block flexing. My engine was built quite strong but in order to install sleeves you have to remove material. The idea is the sleeves add material and while the cylinders may be stronger the block as a whole becomes compromised due to how fragile it is to begin with. The block will not be sleeved this time around. Instead, Gintani advocates using a bedplate/brace. AMS does something similar with their GTR builds: AMS uses a billet aluminum piece but Gintani will be using a chromoly piece to brace the block: This should mitigate flex but additionally by switching to turbos stress on the motor is reduced as a whole. It will be possible to make more power at less boost without needing to manually turn a blower. A huge difference in efficiency alone with increased reliability. Furthermore, the factory crank will not be utilized. A new custom forged stroker crank will also take much more abuse than the factory piece: You will notice the stroke is 76.5mm which is a minimal increase over the factory 75.2mm stroke. This is not about displacement gains but simply increased strength and rod to stroke ratio. Technically, yes, it is a stroker build but you will notice those who went big on a stroke increase in the past and tried to add boost ended up with blown motors. That happened for a reason. What else does this build entail? - Mahle pistons - Ferrea intake and exhaust valves - Forged rods - WPC main bearings - BE rod bearings - Two turbos (specs will be provided later) - Welded and machined heads - Dodson build DCT trans - Water/meth - Upgraded fuel system - Carbon driveshaft - Upgraded oiling system - E85 tuning - Gaskets, fluids, etc. When we get to the tuning portion further details will be posted at that time. For now, stock DME tuning is looking likely but the Syvecs S65 standalone may be incorporated. To those who have supported this project and understand the work involved to push a BMW to these levels and that everything does not always go as planned, thank you. To those who have not I'd like to point out not only is BimmerBoost.com bigger than ever before but things will only continue to get better from here on out.

    I figured I'll give Energy Suspension liquid urethane a try. I made 2 mounts so if anyone is interested send me a message and we'll see what we can work out. I used the 80A formula. 80A - Even trade off between performance and vibration when it comes to motor mount inserts. This formula is the most popular for it's ability to significantly increase vehicle performance while still allowing some small amount of flex in the mounts to keep vibration and noise to reasonable levels Here are some quick pictures.

    Same dynojet last July in fairly warmer Temps I dynoed at 442/507 on e60.. no meth or inlets this morning now with 50/50 meth and Aem 500cc nozzle and mmp silicone inlets dynoed at 437/498. only other change made between dyno's was going from 255/40/17 conti DW to 275/40/17 nt555r and mfactory Lsd dyno graph attached and today's logs below http://datazap.me/u/msport335/mhd-e6...og=0&data=4-22 Here is last years Dyno logs http://datazap.me/u/msport335/mhd-e6...og=0&data=4-23 pretty much identical Dyno graphs even though I'm running more boost up top now due to the inlets I'm stumped....could the drag radials have robbed that much power? even being realistic I was aiming for at least 460whp

    516 rear wheel horsepower is an incredible number when you factor in this is naturally aspirated horsepower from a 5.0 liter S85 V10 motor. In other words, over 100 wheel horsepower per liter. Evolve's tuning is displaying incredible efficiency out of the vaunted V10 BMW M powerplant. What are the modifications? Evolve Alpha-N tune Evolve long tube headers Supersprint full exhaust Eventuri intake Underdrive pulley 93 octane pump fuel 516 rwhp Dynojet standard correction Kind of makes you wish BMW stuck with the motor. With a pair of turbos the sky's the limit.

    It seems there are companies who are very serious about setting some impressive N54 times. AD Engineering is one of those groups and they had DSS (Drive Shaft Shop) make a custom set of 8.8 inch axles with the goal being 1000+ lb-ft of torque handling capability. That shouldn't be a problem: AD Engineering's @andy_divers looks ready to break some records: This drag racing season should prove interesting.

    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.

    Not bad for stock turbos lol whole summer of ass whoopings. There is money to be made when you have a low 12 car that looks the way this thing looks Back when it was a 12.5 car After the fuel it upgrade

    http://bestandroidappsdownload.com/apk/25410/aldldroid-v0-83/com.sgiroux.aldldroid Pretty cool app for editing bins on the fly, guy who wrote the program is very receptive to feature requests too. It could use a better saving modal but otherwise it's like a very basic version of tunerpro but allows you to use MHD, bin editing and the jb4 app on one single platform

    klipseracer started a thread 6HP21/26 TCU Cracked! in N54
    According to a member by the name of dave205t, the RSA encryption the 6hp26(TU)/6hp32(TU) has been bypassed. This should allow for uploading a custom file to the TCU finally. For those who don't know, TU stands for technical update and AFAIK, the 6HP26(TU) is the 6HP28 and the 6HP32(TU) was the 6HP34(Link), however was never released to production so I'm not sure exactly what dave205t means. But the good news, is that this method should work for all 6HP transmissions and opens the door to customization of shift points, line pressures, shift speed and possibly transplantation. This can be accomplished using any INPA cable probably much like MHD/Bimmerboost Flash, however he has yet to decide how he wants to monetize his discovery. This is from dave205t: Other details include the fact that development mode of the DME was not enabled in order for the exploit to work, RayBan81 and Mik325tds have been given test versions of the tool, in which Ray has confirmed writing works on a 325d and Mik325tds has confirmed it working on a 335d(I know, names are confusing). Here is Mik325tds with his custom flashed 335d on two short clips showing up and down shifting: The end result, is that the car doesn't drive properly as the Alpina file isn't tuned properly for the application. Right now they are currently doing table discovery on the 6HP26. There is another method for flashing the transmission: https://www.vrtuned.com/transmission-tuning-bmw-gs19-gs20/ which was released after dave205t's discover, but is apparently not an affiliated project.

    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.
