    Still waiting for the carbon fiber composite blocks.

    Well, this certainly should be interesting!

    I can't see how it will work out. I don't think Toyota wants to take a backseat to BMW in performance. No cast iron blocks for either, I will bet.
  3. A Really Nice Pair

    I love both of your cars! :music-rockout:

    Keep us updated, please! :awesome:

    Yeah, twenty pounds of effort should have been noticeable. 16 ft. lbs. is not much at all.

    DCT and their ilk are manual transmissions with automatic computer servo clutch controls and shift actuators.

    Since there is a computer involved, that computer may also automatically shift the...
  6. There is a choice

    Depends which mode the driver selects.

    The clutch is always automated. Just like engine timing in modern cars. ;)

    In a straight line, perhaps until they come to the first corner, then the BMW is pulling away after braking begins.

    "In November of last year Motiv became the first N54 tuner to break into the 800's and also set the N54 power record at 829 rear wheel horsepower on a Dynojet."

    This is like saying, "I saw Dick...

    Ah, but EPA efficiency requirements is exactly what compelled OEM to bring all of the racing tech to current production.

    OHV V8 are dead when it comes to volumetric efficiency. Even GM, Ford and...

    One has to wonder why since DCI are so cheap and so effective no OEM uses them?

    Yeah, those old Detroit solid axle designs were good for a static 1.75 -2+ tons on the rear axle alone.

    I think it is a given provided the N55 has a strong crankshaft and DME management.

    Comparison between the N54, N55 and S55 shows the S55 incorporates many of the N55 improvements in a closed deck...

    N55 has 1mm larger intake valves, not to mention better head cooling, crank lubrication, crankcase venting, oil pump regulation and oil vapor management.

    Just as a side note, one tuner told me...

    Helix is very well crafted (now AMS?), but the Cobb has a little more capacity, perhaps?

    There is a very nice higher capacity radiator out of Germany for 6MT.

    I am (was) a manual guy, but the DCT shifts perfectly every time (I don't) and the new ZF8 auto is pretty damn good and again better than me. For fun at manually shifting, get a Civic and knock...

    Ah, so prefer to shift s-l-o-w-l-y? Whatever floats your boat.

    Because you have to pump a pedal with your left foot and move a lever through a gate?

    Kind of like saying you wish you had manual engine timing on the steering wheel still!

    I think all of the...

    DCT is the best of both worlds for me. Best automatic or best manual with 7 speeds, driver's choice.

    Thanks for confirming my post for which I have been "penalized" another -12 points. I guess some people just can't deal with the truth. :rolleyes:

    Potential customers with questions about MFactory, what they offer and why MFacoty differentials are superior to other gear driven torsion differentials should visit their home pages.

    Yeah, like one can obtain any meaningful absolute numbers from any wheel driven dynamometer.

    These numbers only have meaning with reference to a base run and control of variables between runs. ...
