    More and more flash tunes continue to come out for the S63TU engine platform which is used in the BMW F10 M5 and F13 M6. BrenTuning's approach is not just one of an ECU (engine control unit) tune but also addresses the DCT transmission with TCU (transmission control unit) adjustments. The TCU settings are modified to give full torque delivery and lock up on peak boost. BMW likely tunes the transmission the way they do from the factory to protect it for longevity as they do not exactly replace the clutch discs but say they are 'lifetime' units which is really just a cost cutting and warranty measure. That said, by modifying the torque delivery profile one can improve the performance even without increasing boost pressure by unleashing what is already there. Do not expect lifetime clutch life though. As far as the power and torque gains from the ECU tuning BrenTuning on 93 octane pump gas managed to gain on a Mustang Dyno an additional 31 horsepower and 106 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. This is tune only with the only difference from stock being a Magnaflow rear section which does not do much for power output. The gains are seen down low with a massive increase in torque that starts to taper toward redline explaining why the peak torque gain is so much larger than the peak horsepower gain. This is not a motor designed for big top end power but sees massive gains down low in torque. This tune should provide a massive kick in the pants you can feel. As far as pricing, BrenTuning is asking a very reasonable $995. For now it seems they are flashing only in house but mobile flash kits are supposed to come soon. Great stuff as usual from BrenTuning.

    Hello everyone! Its time to get port fueling out to everyone!!! Happy 4th of July and what better way to celebrate than to take a 100% made in America company and release a massive group buy for a product that never sees sales! my sponsors over at Custom Performance Engineering (cp-e) want to get quality BMW parts out to our community, they have had this port injection system for a while being marketed and sold by our friends over at Burger Tuning! Lets get this affordable solution to all your fueling needs out there for everyone! HERE IS HOW IT WORKS No money up front! Just message me your name and email. I will start the list on this thread! Already at competitively priced $919 Starting price how can you NOT go this route! 5 people= $30 off + $45 Boost Bucks 10 people = $75 off + $50 Boost Bucks 15 people = $125 off + $55 Boost Bucks If you don't know what Boost Bucks are this is basically a gift card for other cp-e products. I cant spill all the secrets but in the VERY near future this might be VERY useful! My promise to you is if we can get 20 people I am going to talk Josh (the CEO) into a BIG discount even though he only approved the above so far! feel free to share this around I will close the Group buy on July 20th and at this time I will send out an email chain with coordinating instructions, and your port fuel injection will ship out immediately! visit us here at http://cp-e.com/

    More great runs from our friends in Russia here. We have a Porsche 991 Turbo with the PP-Performance RS650 tuning package going up against a stock Lamborghini Aventador and a Weistec supercharged W204 generation C63 AMG Black Series. The PP-P tune for the 991 Turbo and S from what we understand is piggyback based. The 991 Turbo and S both have the same sized turbochargers. A PP-P tuned 991 Turbo S went as quick and fast 9.896 @ 137.78 when trying to oneup Simon Motorsport on the recently discredited Yas Marina drag strip. Well, these runs are not on the Yas Marina dragstrip but done by the Russians known for Moscow Unlimited. The first run has the PP-P tuned Turbo go up against the Lamborghini Aventador and the Porsche wins. No surprise here at all considering how a stock 991 Turbo S did against a stock Aventador. The 991 Turbo gets through the 1/4 mile quicker and faster with a 10.359 @ 132.085 compared to the Aventador 11.059 @ 129.525. It is also faster through the kilometer as the Turbo pulls 169.846 miles per hour to the Aventador's 169.206. The Aventador closes the gap as speeds rise. The second run has the Turbo go at it with a Weistec supercharged W204 C63 AMG Black Series said to be at 700 horsepower so we assume a 2.3 liter blower package. The Black Series is set up for the track and not kilometer drag racing so the owner wisely removes the rear wing which creates downforce at the expense of aerodynamic drag. The 991 Turbo wins covering the quarter mile in 10.650 @ 131.389 compared to the C63 AMG 11.644 @ 127.456. The kilometer numbers are 19.401 @ 169.976 for the 991 Turbo compared to 20.669 @ 166.434 for the supercharged C63 Black Series. It certainly is interesting that the PP-Performance tuned 991 Turbo numbers in the Russian air do not approach what PP-P shows in the hot desert air of Yas Marina in the UAE. You will have to explain that inconsistency yourself.

    I ordered a black 2011+ model turbosmart race port blow off valve in black. It cost me $272 shipped. Im not going to be using it. My loss is your gain. It will fit any tial q bov flange, mounted on a chargepipe already or not. 100% brand new and never used. $240 picked up or shipped obo. For more info on this bov, heres a link: http://www.bmwgarage.com.au/index.ph...vs-turbosmart/ I have all 4: left front #22-135032 ($112), right front #22-135049 ($112), and two rear #19-135052 ($63 each). These are specifically for sport package equipped cars, and are valved 10% firmer than OE 335i sport struts/shocks. Total for all of them as a set comes to $350.00 new from tirerack. I originally ordered them from tirerack but never ended up using them, so the condition of these are 100% brand new. Looking to get $300.00 obo for them picked up, or i will ship. I also have both front and rear full set of stoptech stainless steel brake lines for E9X 335i brand new in packaging. they were $140.00 shipped from r1concepts, but ill take $120 shipped obo for them.
