    This is certainly an interesting development and our users will agree that the more aftermarket options they have the better. Evolution of Speed, who we have never heard of previously and have no affiliation with, is set to release their N5X intake manifold which will gain a lot of interest from N54 and likely N55 owners as well. The obvious here is that guys would want to pair this with methanol injection or port injection for supplemental fuel. The expected price point and design makes that aspect attractive. This would not be something that N54 or N55 owners expecting big gains over the OEM manifold would benefit from but for more hardcore owners making big power with say a single turbo upgrade. Exactly the kind of power junkies who are on BimmerBoost. It will be interesting to see the results from members who buy this product and what the options will be such as the finishes, integrated port injection, etc.

    This is something we are going to see more of as the new M3 and M4 battle with the 335i and 135i models equipped with the N54 (with N55's more and more getting into the mix as well). This goes down about as one would expect with the F80 M3 pulling up top. The M3 has the advantage of the DCT transmission. The Eurocharged ECU flash tune with downpipes as this M3 has boosts things considerably. Basically, a bolt on F80 M3 should make a bit more power than a bolt on E9X 335i N54 but the N54 has some additional tricks up its sleeve that this particular example is not running including inlets and E85. This particular N54 is running meth injection though and the F80 M3 S55 is not which is a factor although it is on race gas. Ultimately, these are both 3.0 liter twin turbo direct injected BMW inline-6 motors and which is faster comes down to the amount of mods and really money spent. The M3 will ultimately have the advantages of the DCT transmission and the higher redline. It also is the more complete package to begin with. It's a bit of a shame these are chase view runs on the video (it should be a crime really) but it goes to show how quick a tune and downpipes M3/M4 is and how it stacks up to a bolt on N54.

    Some tuners make big claims before a product is actually ready for prime time. You see it all the time on the forums and the hype builds to the point it is a runaway train. Responsible tuners temper these expectations by telling a potential customer it is not ready and some just act like it is ready to continue the illusion of product superiority. It truly is fascinating and interesting how some of these companies leverage forums to not just sell products but buy minds. The idea is controlling what people think by getting them to parrot back the same lines over and over. The danger with ESS-Tuning that a person who goes by by the name RingMeister01 found out the hard way is that they long ago bought and paid for the E9X M3 upgrade market by convincing everyone on the BMW forums they are the best based on sales volume. In turn, their fanboys outnumber the rest. This somehow has been perverted into BMW tuning superiority on every BMW platform that graces the earth. ESS-Tuning may sell a lot of superchargers (the reasons for that we will not go into here) but that does not mean they are a turbo builder. Far from it as a matter of fact. AMS found this out on their own when they dropped ESS-Tuning from their F10 M5 S63TU turbo upgrade project and ESS-Tuning was supposed to provide just the tuning there and not even the turbo hardware. AMS Performance deciding to tune on their own tells you plenty regarding ESS BMW tuning and turbo expertise. The simple fact is they don't have any and when AMS sought them out to tune they had no way to actually tune the ECU. It was BS. They source their turbo hardware from turbo builders but we do not know exactly which ones or if they are reliable. ESS-Tuning does not produce turbochargers themselves just as they do not produce superchargers themselves. They sell a complete 'kit' so to speak and this kit is what RingMeister01 thought he was getting. The problem is it was portrayed to him as ready to go and complete. Based on his experience, it was far from that. After the fact our favorite forum spinmeister Roman@ESS-Tuning stated it was not a complete product but a beta product and Mr. RingMeister01 should have known better: Clever, right? State the product is in beta and that the customer expectations are way out of proportion and he should not expect some complete product. It makes you wonder then why he was under the impression he was getting a complete product ready to go from ESS-Tuning. Is RingMeister01 just unreasonable? Perhaps he's just stupid? Or perhaps the product was misrepresented? Here is what RingMesiter01 thinks: "As if I had time for non-sense but I wouldn't want others to go through this as I did. I initially spoke to Jesse from Pure turbos on getting their kit but as he knows I didn't want to run a JB4 with boost juice to reliable make gains. I wanted a flash tune/turbo package. Jesse was very helpful in educating me on what they were offering and what to expect from their kit. I must say he is extremely knowledgeable and professional. IND working on their S63tu turbo upgrade with AMS was another option. Again this was in its early stages but I sent over a new set of turbos for them to look at for machining, etc. AMS at the time was so busy with whatever other monsters they are creating that they couldn't commit to a lead-time on developing the hardware for our cars. Ilia's plan was for AMS to upgrade the hardware and develop the tune with my turbos on IND's shop car. IMG Motorsports informs me that ESS has a kit ready to go, tune and all. He asks me to get my turbos back from AMS and send them to him for the ESS upgrade if I was interested. Like anyone else here, say ESS and its a no brainer (mainly from their success with the superchargers). The turbos are sent to IMG. I now email AJ for the upgrade details; In the email he clearly states that the kit is ready and the tune I would be getting is specific to the turbos. He also promises that they will be the best solution available. No problems at all thus far and I was really getting excited to be apart of this first kit. I offered to post a review, dyno charts and pilot runs on the forum. AJ then said "We'll give you a really good deal if you would do that for us." A few weeks pass and no word on the turbos (ecu was removed and sent within this period), so I email AJ. "Your turbos are with IMG, they were returned three weeks ago. He definitely has them." -AJ Hmm? Why wasn't I told? I send out a text message to find the turbos had arrived and that I was informed but most likely didn't receive the text from IMG because he was at Lime Rock Park and "there's no reception there, bro." Clearly that was the case as I see posts from him on Instagram all weekend from the track. Anyway... who cares, right? "AJ charged my credit card for your turbos, could you go make a cash deposit in my account for $5,000 tomorrow?" Ok now I'm a tad uncomfortable. AJ and I had spoken about pilot runs, dynos, reviews for the kit on the forum and now I'm being charged retail for the kit and I always thought I'd pay ESS directly. I ask IMG why I was being charged retail when I had already been offered a discount, "cause everything else out there is junk, bro. This is what he charged my card." Ok, I understand IMG would not be aware of my conversations with AJ, so I email AJ directly on the spot. "Your pricing is determined by the vendor, we have nothing to do with that on our end. You must go through one of our vendors." WTF. That awful feeling in my stomach comes over and I realize that this isn't going to be what I signed up for. See now Im in no control what so ever and Im at the mercy of a vendor I don't feel comfortable with and I have no choice but to pay whatever he wants me to, to get my turbos back. I emailed AJ again and bitched until IMG sent me a text "Bro, AJ refunded my card $500." Ok, lets just move forward... The ECU comes back (I must had sent 10 emails asking whether the tune was specific to these turbos and if I could please have CEL, Vmax and cold start deletes, I was assured I would. I didn't want to have the ecu removed and installed multiple times due to the process) and everything comes together at which time I get a text from IMG "car is done, get ready for 550 whp, bro" EXCITED!!! I get to the techs place (who btw is so talented and genuine). I sit in the car and say to myself (knowing how irresponsible and nonchalant this "vendor" is) I fucking bet it goes through cold start. Hit the starter button and of course, its there. I'm sure Vmax isnt deleted either. So lets just drive and see how she performs. Very smooth operation at low speed driving through a residential neighborhood, like stock. The turbos are a little loader but that is probably due to downpipes and BMC filters. I make my way to the highway and WOT. More lag and not much else. Doesn't feel fast or powerful at all. I have been in a lot of M3/4's with ecu flashes and JB4's and this just didn't impress me. I text IMG on my feed back, "Bro, put some good gas in and let it adapt. It takes 80 miles to do so. The set up is so smooth its deceiving." EEERRR....really? A day or two pass and I see this thread and comment that this kit isnt all that. I have every right to post an honest option and review, I always do and without any agenda or with any intention of hurting someone. I always valued the opinion of the members here and considered their experiences when purchasing a product. I wanted to do the same. This is when the truth unfolded. I get a message from Roman, "You aren't allowed to comment on a development project until its completed." Development project? What? Back and forth with Roman I find out that my brand new M4 with 250 miles is a guinea pig for ESS' S55 turbo upgrade. Not a fully develop system as promised but something they were trying to test out. Now I'm furious and text and email all parties. Roman says to me "IMG and Aj said you were aware of this." Motherfookers. Im texting back and forth and clearly I'm upset and Roman offers to refund me and IMG offers to remove turbos put in stock set and refresh car to stock as long as I delete all posts on this thread. I deleted what I could on the spot and emailed Jason (admin) to remove/clean up anything else. Only a few minutes turned and Roman sends me a lengthily message on how I did recieve what i payed for; upgraded ecu and turbo kit and at a significant discount... $500.. really? If I cooperate I'd get free tune upgrades and if not then ESS will sever all ties with me and stop communication. I send him a text back..."You are so fucked" I did try to suppress my disappointment and the distrust I felt and continue to just get this kit to work. IMG takes my car to the dyno and puts down what you see on the thread BUT when I asked about the dyno and a picture of the dyno, I got a half ass cell phone pic of a 1/4 of the graph and blurry to the point it was hard to make out the numbers. I asked and asked for a full picture so I could see the curves and the crossing point...ect. I just wanted to stay on top of this if I was going to use my car for development. On and on and on I get a dyno file in a format I have no idea to do with (i guess its the dynojet software) wtf am I supposed to do with that? At the end I asked about the new tune I was getting and what was different about it from the Beta file I have now. I was concerned that they were just going to crank up the boost to make numbers on the dyno. I was then insulted by IMG through texts and I just called it quits. I just don't care anymore, $4000 for new turbos, $4500 for the upgrade, $1800 for tune and priceless lies. I would had been fine with everything but just don't lie to me and twist things to make me look stupid. Judge me I don't care, I have nothing else to share here. This is for anyone as a warning- know who you are dealing with, know what you are getting into because if it goes wrong you will be left for dead." This sounds like a guy who thought he was getting a product that works. ESS stating after all of this on the forums it was a 'development project' is obviously to affect public perception of the gigantic mistake of selling a product that isn't ready. Yes, ESS never told him that and told him the exact opposite according to his own words and the e-mail records. Apparently he has the e-mails showing this and I'm sure we would all love to see them but thus far he has not published them. If it were BimmerBoost, we would and we actually have to expose deception. Hopefully ESS doesn't push him around but he seems like a guy so far that isn't responding well to ESS demands. This guy thought he would be getting turbos and a discount to post reviews, dynos, runs, etc., on the forum. A pretty standard marketing practice on forums to get supposedly 'independent' reviews. Unfortunately, a certain ESS cheerleader serving as the middle-man here decided to charge full retail. Why? To line his own pockets of course. Who cares if it works, right? Well, reputable vendors care. Nobody cared here. Get the money and oh well too bad say it's 'beta' if it doesn't work. ESS tried to keep this off the forums but it didn't work: "This is when the truth unfolded. I get a message from Roman, "You aren't allowed to comment on a development project until its completed." Development project? What? Back and forth with Roman I find out that my brand new M4 with 250 miles is a guinea pig for ESS' S55 turbo upgrade. Not a fully develop system as promised but something they were trying to test out. Now I'm furious and text and email all parties. Roman says to me "IMG and Aj said you were aware of this." Motherfookers." RingMeister01 has every reason to be angry. Not only did he not get what he paid for, not only did he pay more than he was supposed to, he is now supposed to shut up about the problems. He finally realizes he is a guinea pig. It's just that he never signed up to be one. It is somewhat interesting as well that Roman@ESS commands him not to speak. Do you see now how certain forums work now? Anything negative is kept off. If you do not shut your mouth you will not get further support. It's not about having the best products. It's about making people think that you do. That is why he was offered a refund and a return to stock if he deleted all his posts. You would think that offer would be on the table regardless as it should be instead of being conditional. This customer chose not to bend over but how many have bent over for ESS? How much has been swept under the rug? BimmerBoost is aware of much of it and some of what gets deleted is hosted here for specifically this reason. You as a potential customer deserve to know the truth, don't you? You are not a vendor's pawn, are you? Shouldn't the customers have the power in this relationship? This is the same old story with ESS-Tuning as always but trying to get it out there is the problem. They use their power to pull posts, edit threads, close threads, etc., if they are not portrayed in the best light. It's arrogance, pure and simple. What they should have done is make it a priority to fix the guys car (another tuner offered to fly out to fix it), provide what he paid for, and not charge him a dime for any of it. That would require them going out of pocket. It's simply the easier (cowardly) way out to get this all deleted, spin it, and go about business as usual. They won't be able to delete this though. If they try, the blowback will be bigger than it already is:

    The BMW F80 M3 is the worst of this trio? That is what MotorTrend thinks which is in stark contrast to Car and Driver who picks the M3 over the other two. Car and Driver also though the ATS-V belonged in last place whereas MotorTrend puts it in the middle and behind the comparison winner which is the new Mercedes-AMG C63 S. Here is how they stacked up: 3rd Place: BMW M3 It's cliché to say, but this is the best third-place finisher in Motor Trend history. C'est la vie. 2nd Place: Cadillac ATS-V
 This stud athlete is let down by its lack of powertrain refinement and sonic thrills. Cadillac has very little tweaking to do to get things right. 1st Place: Mercedes-Benz C63 S AMG 
 An iron fist in a velvet glove. Race mode transforms the beast into an iron fist in an iron glove. Lap times: Caddy ATS-V 1:31.43 C63 1:31.52 BMW M3 1:32.51 How the M3 finishes behind the other two on the track is a head scratcher. The M3 is a full second behind the other two? Huh? It is the lightest car with the best balance. At 3498 pounds it undercuts the ATS-V by 286 pounds and the C63 AMG S by 434 pounds. The C63 AMG S weight distribution is 54/46% front to back and the ATS-V is 52/48%. The M3 is stated to be 50/50 in this test. The ATS-V is not beating the M3 around the track based on power or being lighter. It is tested as the slowest of this trio which is in stark contrast to Car and Driver's absurdly fast numbers for the automatic ATS-V. MotorTrend previously tested the automatic ATS-V and got a 12.3 @ 114.6 out of in the 1/4 mile. Now in this comparison they get a 12.1 @ 116.2. Quicker and faster yet still nowhere near Car and Driver's ATS-V tester which now looks like a ringer. We can not make sense of the acceleration numbers for the ATS-V as they are all over the place but the M3 and C63 appear to be exactly where they should be. The C63 AMG S is shown to be the fastest of the trio yet it was the slowest in the Car and Driver test. Seriously, what the hell is going on? The acceleration numbers here at least do not look suspect as the C63 AMG S should be faster than the M3 which it is. The wild card is really the ATS-V but it is performing more like the early reports showing trap speeds in the 115 miles per hour range than the outlier of 122. A spread of over 7 miles per hour is at least a difference of 70 wheel horsepower. It is also interesting to note all three get to 100 in 8.8 seconds but the ATS-V seems to start to run out of steam above 100 miles per hour. Ok, enough about potential ringers and testing anomalies. The main thing here is the stunning last place finish for the M3. The ATS-V is said to feel sportier and the C63 AMG S is said to be the best all around package. How the lightest and best balanced car here loses and posts such a poor laptime we can not explain. The ATS-V posting the quickest laptime considering its figure eight advantage and best braking performance makes sense but the C63 beating the M3 here does not considering other track tests have shown the opposite. An interesting test to say the least.

    Cobb's Porsche 991 Turbo tuning development continues and they are moving rapidly. Below are results for Cobb Stage I and Stage II OTS (off the shelf) tuning. These numbers are results anyone can expect with the OTS tunes and of course they can be further customized if one wishes. The torque gains massive with just the Stage I OTS tune on pump gas. They were able to pick up an additional 107 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. Stage II on pump gas takes this to 652 lb-ft of torque at the wheels for a gain of 120 lb-ft. The biggest horsepower gains come on race gas but that raises the question of diminishing returns due to cooling issues. PorscheBoost of course already explored 991 Turbo and Turbo S heat soak issues and Cobb is well aware of cooling limitations especially when tuning. Cobb is working on intercooler upgrades to overcome any limitations and push things forward. Impressive work thus far. Our Porsche Experts have been hard at work making sure we’re all set for the Porsche 991 Turbo Accessport release which is getting closer by the day! The most fun part of that process is strapping the cars down to the dyno and seeing just how much power they make after a bit of tuning. We were extremely lucky to be able to work with Porsche of Colorado Springs for the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. That experience enabled us to learn a TON about these cars and how they react to different tuning strategies, aftermarket bolt-on parts, or differences in fuel quality. Below, we’ll take a look at some of the power gains we’ve seen. First, on an otherwise stock car followed by gains associated with an upgraded exhaust and appropriate tuning. As a note, the data in the graphs was recorded on two separate days however the delta from the baseline pulls remains accurate. Seen here is our initial Stock Baseline pull on 91 octane fuel along with a Stage 1 OTS map using 93 octane fuel. A Stage 1 map would be used on an otherwise completely stock vehicle. Power under the curve is significantly increased throughout the low and mid range. Maximum gains of around 60whp are seen between 3000-4000 RPM. Most impressive is the increase in low-end torque, with gains of over 100 ft/lbs! Next up, Stage 2. A Stage 2 map is calibrated to be used on a car with upgraded exhaust. As is evident with the power gains, the motor is able to flow a significantly greater amount of air with the freer flowing exhaust. With gains of 120 ft/lbs down low and nearly 100 hp at peak, the cars become a whole new animal. We are able to be a touch more aggressive utilizing 100 octane fuel, this will be a great option for customers interested in tracking their car where detonation resistance is key. Stay tuned as we continue development on this platform. At this point, the cars will really need an improved cooling system to make any additional power. We’re already in contact with top intercooler providers in the industry with intentions of overcoming the next bottleneck in power.

    Very impressive Stage 2 M178 tuning numbers here from Renntech. As you may recall, Renntech started work on the M178 motor early this year. They showed a baseline of 531 crank horsepower and 472 wheel horsepower. They have the AMG GT S with their turbo upgrade and downpipes up to 682 crank horsepower or 625 at the wheels on their dyno now. Those are some major gains. Torque alone is up by 167 lb-ft over stock. What is also nice to see is how flat the M178 torque curve is once the motor spools and how the torque curve does not really start to drop hard until past 6500 rpm. The M178 in general is definitely breathing better up top than the M177 in the C63 especially this example. Renntech previously shared an acceleration video of their intermediate tuned AMG GT S running up to 195 miles per hour and this time they take it to 199 miles per hour with the Stage 2 setup. The car accelerates hard with the Stage 2 package and the gearshifts look to be about instant. They get to 198 miles per hour in no time. It's incredible how easily the car gets there and with no drama whatsoever. This car is fast. It will be interesting to see how much further Renntech takes it on the turbo upgrade with race gas but for now they obviously are not pushing the transmission beyond its limits.

    Ford held a press day for the upcoming GT350 and GT350R Mustang models at the 2.0 mile long Grattan Raceway in Michigan. Ford provided some key information on the GT350 and GT350R including that their curb weights are 3760 pounds and 3650 pounds respectively. Not light but not super heavy either. Oh, and how about the fact the GT350R beats the 911 GT3 by 1/10 of a second at this racetrack? That is the Ford press claim. Things may change on different days on different tracks but what it shows is that on the racetrack it is a driver's race between the GT350R and the 911 GT3. That is incredible considering the GT350R is less than half the price.

    We spend most of our time on speed and power here but it never hurts to look good while going fast. This 6-Series certainly looks good with the Prior-Design F13 650i widebody kit. The fitment and paint all look to be very well done almost as if OEM. Which is interesting as we have members here who have purchased Prior-Design products only to report poor fitment. There certainly is likely a difference between the cars and parts used for marketing such as this and what customers actually get simply based on reports and results posted on this network. That said, this particular example of Prior-Design's work combined with wheels from Vossen certainly looks good. Brembo brakes and a GT Haus Meisterschaft exhaust help finish things off.

    The new CTS-V is finally getting into the hands of the magazines and Car and Driver is the first to publish their test figures. Now, before we delve into them we want to raise a bit of a red flag with Car and Driver's Cadillac results considering their major disparity in ATS-V testing. Is Car and Driver in bed with Cadillac? Is Cadillac sending tweaked press cars? Are the new Cadillac V models just spectacularly quick? Is it all of the above? Is it none? In all likelihood the CTS-V performs exactly as the numbers here show. We just want to point out that magazine numbers are harder to trust these days and to get the complete picture we need to see some independent results as well as a comparison with its competition for context. With that out of the way let's look at the figures for the 8L90 8-speed automatic equipped version. 0-60 in 3.6 which is highly impressive for a car with this level of torque and a positive displacement blower. 0-100 in 7.5. The 1/4 mile comes in 11.8 seconds at 124 miles per hour. It is essentially a lighter and faster M5. The CTS-V weighs 4129 pounds which puts it at roughly 250 pounds less than the BMW F10 M5 and roughly 450 pounds less than the Mercedes-AMG E63 S and Audi RS7. How about that, the Cadillac is the lightest of the bunch. Unfortunately Car and Driver did not provide a weight distribution figure but the Cadillac is likely balanced better than the nose heavy RS7 and E63. With grip in abundance as highlighted by .98g on the skidpad this car is going to be more playful than its rivals when hitting the turns. That is kind of the point. This thing can do more than just go fast in a straightline even though it should rule the highway compared to its German competition. The Cadillac is the lightest, likely the best handling, and also likely the autobahn king. Things sure are changing. Cadillac sure is pricing themselves like the Germans. The as tested figure of $95,290 is not cheap and certainly creeping up there. The CTS-V is offering German levels of refinement though, arguably better handling and performance, and is cheaper depending on how the cars are optioned out. It certainly is fair for Cadillac to price themselves the way they are considering what the vehicle offers. We will have to wait and see how it stacks up in direct comparisons but things are looking good thus far. The CTS-V is poised to be the cream of the luxury super sedan crop offering the best all around blend of price, performance, comfort, driver involvement, and luxury. Those traits used to be BMW's recipe for success. Specifications VEHICLE TYPE:front-engine, rear-wheel-drive, 5-passenger, 4-door sedan PRICE AS TESTED:$95,290 (base price: $84,990) ENGINE TYPE:supercharged and intercooled V-8, aluminum block and heads DISPLACEMENT:376 cu in, 6162 cc Power: 640 hp @ 6400 rpm Torque: 630 lb-ft @ 3600 rpm TRANSMISSION:8-speed automatic with manual shifting mode DIMENSIONS: Wheelbase: 114.6 in Length: 197.7 in Width: 72.2 in Height:57.2 in SAE interior volume: F:61 cu ft R: 42 cu ft Trunk: 14 cu ft Curb weight: 4129 lb C/D TEST RESULTS: Zero to 60 mph: 3.6 sec Zero to 100 mph: 7.5 sec Zero to 130 mph: 13.6 sec Zero to 150 mph: 17.4 sec Zero to 170 mph: 25.8 sec Rolling start, 5-60 mph: 3.8 sec Top gear, 30-50 mph: 2.0 sec Top gear, 50-70 mph: 2.1 sec Standing ¼-mile: 11.8 sec @ 124 mph Top speed (drag ltd, mfr's claim): 200 mph Braking, 70-0 mph: 149 ft Roadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 0.98 g FUEL ECONOMY: EPA city/highway (C/Dest): 14/20 mpg

    Improving on the factory BMW airbox design for the F80 M3 and F82 M4 is not easy. It is not like the BMW engineers do not design efficient parts themselves but they do have to work within a certain budget and with BMW suppliers as well as deal with strict regulations. As we all know there is room to improve on many BMW factory parts including something like the intake system on the S55 motor in the F80 M3 and F82 M4. Gains really show when someone is running a tune or higher boost as the factory system becomes more of a restriction at that point. Look at the dyno results on a Mustang dynamometer here from AWE-Tuning. The aftermarket part and the factory part perform about the same until the motor is past 3k rpm. At that point the S-Flo system provides greater flow on the test car which is running their piggyback tune and exhaust system. At the factory power levels gains will be minimal but this is a mod for that person trying to extract every last horse and remove restrictions. What the dyno results prove is that the factory intake can be made more efficient and this pays dividends as the motor is pushed harder. Is this system worth the $1595 they are asking for it? Well, that is up to you. For the cost conscious the recently released BMS system is quite the value alternative. The AWE piece sure is pretty though and offers OEM fit and finish.

    It has been a while since BMW introduced the M6 GT3 set to replace the Z4 GT3. BMW Motorsport director stated the 24 Hour Dubai and Daytona races in 2016 are what they are targeting, "That’s obviously what I think customers would like to run and that’s what we’re clearly aiming at." Those are big endurance races and certainly a good time to make a debut. They are also still a ways off which means testing can continue and the car should be ready to go next year. What BMW is doing is tweaking and testing the car for privateer teams, "That’s the focus of our development program is that we hand over a car to the customers that’s already developed, that not necessarily has raced in the hands of a works effort from our side. It’s competition. But as we’ve said before and I would like to stress again, this is really customer racing. Therefore, for us, it’s not an option to enter a prototype on a works level and compete against our customers or potential customers. This is customer racing and nothing but." Do not expect a factory backed effort with the M6 as you saw with the Z4 and M3 previously. As a reminder the M6 GT3 features a 500 horsepower 4.4 liter twin turbo V8 based on the S63TU engine design with a dry sump oiling system. The power is routed through a six speed sequential manual gearbox. With a dry weight of 2866 pounds it should move quite quickly.

    Finally some concrete details on what we have all known was coming since 2013. PorscheBoost speculated over a year ago that up to 2.5 liters of displacement would be offered if Porsche used a modular architecture. We do not have the bore and stroke figures yet to confirm but it looks like we predicted this accurately. Porsche will give the base cars a 2.0 liter turbo boxer motor and the Cayman and Boxster S and GTS variants will get a 2.5 liter variant. The GT4 will remain naturally aspirated with its 3.8 liter flat-6 but this is a limited model anyway. The current rumor is this: Boxster/Cayman 240 horsepower 2.0-litre flat four turbo Boxster S/Cayman S 300 horsepower 2.5-litre flat four turbo Boxster GTS/Cayman GTS 370 horsepower 2.5-litre flat four turbo We do trust these numbers floating around the internet as Porsche always historically does incremental horsepower upgrades. We expect things to look more like this: Boxster/Cayman 280 horsepower 2.0-litre flat four turbo Boxster S/Cayman S 330-340 horsepower 2.5-litre flat four turbo Boxster GTS/Cayman GTS 350-380 horsepower 2.5-litre flat four turbo Torque of course is up with the turbo powerplants but the idea of Porsche taking power down goes against what they always do with updates. It is too early to tell right now so people are just guessing, ourselves included. PorscheBoost just believes it guesses better. Source

    We are all big fans of the Focus RS and what Ford is doing with automobiles geared toward performance enthusiasts. The Focus RS with its all wheel drive system as well as availability in the US for the first time is getting a lot of attention and rightfully so. The car has an excellent powerplant offering 345 horsepower with some big changes from its Mustang Ecoboost sibling, a built-in drift mode in the stability control, and quite a bit of tuning potential. Is it worth the $35,370 you see in the screenshot that is supposedly from a Ford site that is not supposed to be public knowledge? We think so considering what a German all wheel drive high performance turbo four-cylinder car will cost you that will not have near the performance per dollar especially when the aftermarket is factored in. Look at what a CLA45 AMG costs with options, a Golf R with options, and then look at the Focus RS. It looks a lot better in that context.

    The Ford GT as everyone knows had a 5.4 liter V8 motor with a blower on top. Well, the upcoming GT will not have a V8 and the car will not be supercharged. Instead, a 3.5 liter Ecoboost V6 is taking its place and considering the Mustang offers far more displacement that has some people scratching their heads. Those scratching their heads need to understand the Ecoboost V6 is lighter and that Ford is focused on racing with the upcoming car. As they intend to challenge at Le Mans fuel efficiency is at a premium in such an endurance race and the Ecoboost motor will offer far greater efficiency for the power levels. Plus, just listen to it. Relax everyone, things are going to be just fine with a V6 under the hood. This thing is going to be a beast.

    Some very fast cars in this video. It is shot from the perspective of the bolt on Gen IV Viper so unfortunately we do not get an in car view for each race but that is ok. There are several good runs here we do get to see in their full glory. The first race is a chase view between the C6 ZR1 and the procharged C7 said to be making 820 wheel horsepower with meth injection. The C6 takes the race and it is said to make 900 whp. The bolt on Gen IV Viper camera car runs the C7 next. Considering the Viper is down 200 wheel horsepower it does fairly well until the power disparity shows. The C7 is very, very quick. The bolt on Viper next takes on a UGR (Underground Racing) twin turbo Viper. As you can imagine this is a beatdown. Once the turbo Viper spools and shifts it is gone. It just takes off. The bolt on Viper camera car takes on another twin turbo Viper after this and the result is much of the same. The yellow UGR Viper runs the ZR1 next but this is a chase view unfortunately. The Viper does take the win though. The final race features a T67 Supra against the bolt on gen IV Viper camera car. This is an ugly beatdown. Frankly, the Supra is probably still spooling as this is written. Nice to see cars at various power levels like this go at it to put high horsepower in context.

    Some very encouraging results here from MotorTrend who got their hands on the new W205 generation C63 from Mercedes-AMG. The test numbers are better than what Car and Driver published and closer to what we have seen from independent results with the C63. The 12.2 @ 119.5 1/4 mile sprint is close to the trap speed of independent tests on a drag strip and reinforces BenzBoost's belief that the new C63 is an 11 second car at over 120 miles per of trap speed in stock form. Winter weather alone should prove that but these are good numbers in the summer heat. The car of course is heavy as all tests have shown. 3963 pounds is closer to E-Class territory than what one would expect from a C-Class. The weight distribution is nose heavy with 54% of the weight up front. It is not nearly as well balanced as the AMG GT which is to be expected. Considering the fairly narrow tires for a twin turbo V8 sedan the skidpad number is impressive with 1.01g pulled. Also higher than the .98g recorded by Car and Driver. MotorTrend liked the MCT automatic behavior when going full tilt but around town they found it behaved odd in power delivery. They compared it to the Porsche PDK when driving hard which is certainly a great comparison but a dual clutch transmission it is not no matter how the software masks it. Good numbers regardless that have us excited to see what the upcoming C63 coupe can do. 2015 Mercedes-AMG C63 S BASE PRICE $72,825 PRICE AS TESTED $89,035 VEHICLE LAYOUT Front-engine, RWD, 5-pass, 4-door sedan ENGINE 4.0L/503-hp/516-lb-ft twin-turbo DOHC 32-valve V-8 TRANSMISSION 7-speed automatic CURB WEIGHT (F/R DIST) 3,936 lb (54/46%) WHEELBASE 111.8 in LENGTH x WIDTH x HEIGHT 187.0 x 72.4 x 56.5 in 0-60 MPH 4.0 sec QUARTER MILE 12.2 sec @ 119.5 mph BRAKING, 60-0 MPH 101 ft LATERAL ACCELERATION 1.01 g (avg) MT FIGURE EIGHT 24.1 sec @ 0.86 g (avg) EPA CITY/HWY/COMB FUEL ECON 18/25/20 mpg ENERGY CONS., CITY/HWY 187/135 kW-hrs/100 miles CO2 EMISSIONS, COMB 0.94 lb/mile

    This seems very ambitious and difficult to accomplish. Ferrari has a history of lightweight hardcore models but we can not think of one in recent history that managed to shave as much as 440 pounds off the standard model. That standard model being the F12 which in independent tests pushes 3900+ pounds. Some tests have it over 4000 pounds. ~3900 pounds is quite a bit more than the number Ferrari quotes which is which is closer to 3600 pounds. Simply getting the F12 down to Ferrari's own optimistic claims would get rid of nearly 400 pounds. Let's assume for a moment Ferrari performs a miracle and gets 400 pounds off the car. We could expect a real world weight for the F12 in the 35XX pound range at that point. Coupling roughly 3500 pounds with a naturally aspirated 760 horsepower V12 would make for quite a ride. There is no official Ferrari source quoting this weight loss figure or any concrete details about an F12 Speciale. This information comes from Autocar who mentions no Ferrari source and has a history of making grandiose claims such as these that have no basis in reality and are later proved wrong. In all likelihood a lighter F12 Speciale is likely on the way. The weight loss just probably is not almost 450 pounds and that number seems to have been pulled from thin air by Autocar. Source

    Another day brings another set of test numbers for the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V. These latest acceleration results from Road and Track showing what the supercharged LT4 V8 under the hood is capable of are even more impressive than what Car and Driver recorded. 0-60 comes in just 3.5 seconds which is incredible for a rear wheel drive sedan offering over 600 lb-ft of supercharged torque that comes on practically instantly. 0-100 miles per hour takes only 7.4 seconds which used to be supercar performance. The 1/4 mile flashes by in 11.6 @ 126.1. This car is easily over 130 miles per hour in the 1/4 mile with bolt ons. It should actually get closer to 140 which is phenomenal and ahead of what its German rivals do with bolt on modifications. The bad news? It is a bit nose heavy with 53/47% front to back weight distribution. We would like to see 50/50 for a true driver's car but that supercharged LT4 motor puts a bit of weight on the front. Fortunately the 4128 pounds it carries are lighter than its rivals. Great numbers regardless and as far as the straightline battle is concerned the CTS-V looks to be the king versus the competition.

    Not much really needs to be said here. Obviously, this network likes the 2015 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R. A lot. We like like it. With recent reports about it being able to hang with the Porsche 911 GT3 combined with these good looks we have no problem admitting the infatuation. It's just a hell of car.

    Great results here from AMR Performance showing an overlay of a stock, Stage I tuned, and Stage II tuned 4Matic E63 AMG. As you should know the E63 AMG is only available as a 4Matic model now in the USA and specifically only as a E63 AMG S model now with no standard E63 AMG available. The AMR Performance flash is able to add quite a bit of power to your M157 equipped vehicle. Not to mention a ton of torque. This is of course an E63 AMG 4Matic test car but this flash is available for the CLS63 AMG as well as the other M157 63 AMG models in the lineup. The baseline on the all wheel drive Dyno Dynamics shows 557 horsepower stock so it is reading crank output and not wheel output. The AMR Performance Stage I software takes things to 619 horsepower. Sage II pushes output further to 662 horsepower tune only. Horsepower is only one area of focus and we wish AMR included the torque figures on the graph as well but it's easy to see the massive difference in torque between the stock and tuned car as early as 3000 rpm. Just a giant increase in torque which of course tapers toward redline but from 3000 to 5500 offers much more meat. Just more consistent and reliable tuning from AMR for the new breed of AMG's. Year(s): 2012+ Make: Mercedes Benz Model: M157 E63 AMG 5.5 V8 Series: VARIOUS Flash Type: BDM This vehicle will require removal of your ECU to be shipped to AMR in order to access/upload the AMR calibration. Octane(s) Available: 91 Octane 93 Octane 95 Ron 98 Ron 100 Octane AMR ECU Enhancement Features: Optimized Fuel Mapping Optimized Timing Curve Improved Fuel Efficiency Speed Governor Removed Increased Throttle Response Broader & Stronger Power Band Lower RPM Hesitation Eliminated Increased Turbocharger Response In-House Engineered & Tested Results Smoother Firmer Transmission Shift Patterns Installation Methods: AMR Performance (main office) The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG 4-MATIC is a vehicle that continues to impress. In stock form, a vehicle rarely feels this good. The factory was able to push out 550hp & 531tq out of the 5.5L BiTurbo engine. The factory did a decent job of achieving these numbers, but we, at AMR Performance, know that this is just the "top layer of the onion". Through development, we notice that the vehicle is very close to what the factory claims. The vehicle's power outputs are a steady 557hp and 513tq. A great base line and close to the factory being "true to their word". After numerous hours of data acquisition, ECU calibrating (tuning) and extensive software development, the AMR Performance ECU Software upgrade produces a steady, stable & consistent 620hp & 735tq. An increase of +70hp & +222tq with no additional modifications. We have seen as high as +90hp & +250tq, but this was only during first startup conditions when the turbocharger's cooling system is at its lowest temperature and not a realistic "day-to-day" driving conditions. Rather then focus on that peak power "dyno queen", we focus on a powerband that is reliable, steady, stable and constant. Giving your vehicle the power increase during day-to-day driving and having it readily available the moment the throttle is touched. Unlike competitors who use a "piggy-back" or "generic" program to try and increase the power on the vehicle, our proprietary software enhancement process is engineered and designed for your specific vehicle's ECU. Our software calibrations are developed through numerous hours of data acquisition and on & off road/track testing to ensure your vehicle's performance is stable without sacrifices the reliability.

    In the August 2015 issue of AutoBild there is a small tidbit on the R8 model expected to slot in below the V10 model. Thanks to our German members we can provide you with the details. You will notice on the far right of the article page it is mentioned that a 450 horsepower 2.9 liter V6 will slot in below the V10. This makes sense for several reasons. First of all, Audi themselves confirmed the V8 is gone and set to be replaced with a smaller turbo motor in the R8. Many outlets reported that the 2.5 TFSI inline-5 is the motor that would be used. The next generation RS4 is confirmed to use a turbo V6 powerplant. The logical conclusion based on Audi precedent is that the RS4 and entry level R8 will share the same motor as they did with the 4.2 FSI V8. This means a turbo V6 and AutoBild confirms this. They do not cite a direct source for their report but keep in mind in this same AutoBild article they have an interview with Audi Quattro boss Heinz Hollerweger. It is likely that he wanted this info not attributed directly to him at this stage so he is likely the unnamed source. All signs currently point to the RS4 and R8 sharing powerplants once again.

    The all wheel drive Tesla Model S P85D is very quick for a sedan especially below 100 miles per hour where its 864 lb-ft of torque at the wheels makes for a formidable stoplight car. The McLaren 650S is also very formidable with a much stronger top end punch. What does that mean? It means this race goes down like most P85D races where the Tesla sedan has a slight lead and then the top end horsepower of the internal combustion car it is racing takes over. This race is far closer off the line than the others though as the 650S gets a slight advantage on the launch. The Tesla hangs in for a bit even pulling slightly down low but it's quickly over as the 650S pulls away effortlessly. It is not even close as the 650S puts bus lengths on the P85D. Considering the 650S Spider is quicker than an Aventador there is no surprise in the outcome except that the 650S launches very well and even off the line the Tesla can't open up any real advantage unless it gets the jump as it did in the second race. Note that this is not the 'Ludicrous Mode' upgrade coming from Tesla but all the new mode can do is delay the inevitable as you see here.

    Someone at the Ford marketing department sure knows how to get attention. This is not even bad advice considering the current job market and how the costs of college continue to increase disproportionately with inflation and wages. The GT350R may actually end up being the better investment. We're sold on the idea:

    Here he is again. WHY would I post multiple build photos, dynosheets, etc on someone ELSE's thread, hijacking the subject matter of this company's nice cast intake manifold with *integrated port injection!?* Stop changing the subject matter and making it a personal attack. It's obvious this potentially threatens your 'fuel plate' sales, but by attacking the product (and even worst, an informed individual consumer on this forum) makes you and your company look pathetic and will make others think twice about its credibility or doing business with you. You lost me and several others already. My advice, STFU before you lose the ability to keep the lights on in the trailer you live in as well lol... :/
