    The era of quadruple digit F10 M5 and F13 M6 horsepower is officially here! Congratulations to BPC (Bimmer Performance Center) on being the first to crack the 1000 wheel horsepower mark on the S63TU 4.4 liter twin turbo V8 platform. Videos will be coming soon and will be posted below but here is what you need to know: 2013 M5 DCT car Upgraded DCT clutches All done via Flash only, no Piggyback (JB4). 110 Octane, stock fuel system. Methanol injection (M1) NO Nitrous This obviously is their built motor package which is capable of holding roughly 1500 horsepower. 1026 rear wheel horsepower is incredible but they are not done. This is just the beginning.

    This is very impressive! Think about it. A tune only Audi TT-RS is quicker and faster than the standard Audi R8 5.2 liter V10. It also is not too far off the Audi R8 V10 Plus model. We're talking just a beta ECU tune here and it is already in the 10's on pump gas. Unitronic did not touch anything else. Just their Beta Stage I tune meaning with a more aggressive tune and bolt ons there is much more in it. Compare this run to the pass posted the other day of a TT-RS with stock calibration and a downpipe. If you want an all wheel drive turbo street car with a dual clutch transmission and a ton of tuning potential but at a value price point compared to the other options it is hard to argue against the MKIII TT-RS.

    This is BPC's Stage I tune for the BMW N63 motor. Note, this is not the TU but they can accommodate the updated N63 motor in E-Series and F-Series BMW models. Let's take a look a the Stage I results. Stage 1: 15.5 lbs of boost. Stock rev limiter (can be raised if requested). Speed limiter removed. 116 lb-ft of torque at the wheels gained with gains throughout the entire curve. Keep in mind this is the Stage I as the Stage II will be for those who have downpipes and an intake. Stage I starts at $700 and Stage II will follow at $800. As soon as Stage II is complete you can expect a dyno and article on it. For those outside of BPC's Raleigh, NC facility you can mail in your ECU.

    Pure Turbos is killing it on the S55 platform right now. They have multiple 700+ whp cars as well as having helped power the platform into the 9's. This 700+ example is an F80 M3 that belongs to Pure Turbos EU office. Let's take a look at the graph from a Superflow WinDyn dyno: Pureturbos Stage 2 - Fuel-It! fuelling solutions - Protuning Freaks Bootmod3 flash - BMS jb4 tuning - Meth kit - CSF cooling upgrades They made a very nice video covering the car in action below. The fact they are delivering their product all over the world and it is showing big numbers is also very telling in of itself.

    Things in the BMW 4.4 liter twin turbo V8 S63TU tuning world are getting out of control. Recently, the motor cracked the 1000 whp barrier. Well, you can add another impressive feat to its list. The first 1000 horsepower F85 X5M or BMW SUV. Please note, this is crank output and not wheel output. Wheel output is somewhere in the upper 8XX range we are told. The engine is built with a forged bottom end from PPM Racing in Australia with new pistons and rods. Yes, the same PPM that offers a 5.0 liter S63TU stroker package. The compression ratio apparently was also dropped. The turbos we are told are custom Borg Warner units. Additional details such as the tuning, fueling, transmission upgrades, etc., are anyone's guess. This X5M was put together in Russia. Hopefully more details emerge but the S63TU is just impressing across the board right now.

    As many of you know the new ECU's Porsche is utilizing pose a problem for tuners. The 991.2 models with the 9A2 engine have kept tuners out for the most past. Rumor has it that may change soon. A tuner sent BoostAddict a screengrab of their Dimsport system screen when logged in. We are told usually when a model is added support follows quickly after. Another tuner told BoostAddict a week prior that some movement was made on the OBD-II front. Could it be that 991.2 owner prayers will finally be answered?

    This is a big deal. You may be saying aren't 1000+ whp Porsche 911 Turbos nothing new? Yes, but the majority of those are not the newer direct fuel injected models. You will find several 996 Turbos or 997.1 Turbos at 1000+ but to our knowledge this is the first 991.1 Turbo to accomplish the feat. Now what is the mod list? Well, that is where things get tricky. @Emre@Esmotor says it is all custom. Great, but how are you fueling it? What are the turbos? Tuning is done through a Syvecs standalone which simply seems to be the way to go on the platform if you want big power and control for additional fuel injectors. The PDK transmission is upgraded to hold the 1073 horsepower to the wheels by Dodson. Incredible work. Now to get those additional details...

    193.4 miles per hour in the 1/2 mile is moving but what makes this particularly impressive is that it was done in Colorado elevation. Additionally, the car hit 238.4 miles per hour in the standing mile which is phenomenal speed. What is done to it? TES Performance provided a twin turbo setup as well as a 416ci built motor. It is a 6L80 automatic car as well. In addition to the fords pistons and rods you have a Callies crankshaft, LT4 heads, a custom cam, and a direct port nitrous exhaust system. The turbochargers are twin Precision 6266 units. The car is said to make 1400 wheel horsepower with them and we assume that is on the nitrous but this was not clarified. Regardless, this car should be good for over 200 miles per hour in the 1/2 mile with some tweaks at sea level. Apparently they are out of fuel and intend to switch to a port injection setup.

    BMS or Burger Tuning is well known in BMW circles for their JB4 piggyback tunes. They are branching out to other platforms and recently purchased a 2018 B9 Audi S4 development car. This car of course has the top mount turbocharged EA838 3.0 TFSI V6. It certainly will be interesting to see what they get out of the car as well as their testing going forward. BMS normally utilizes a rear wheel drive Dynojet but as the Audi is all wheel drive they will have to find another dyno. Furthermore, there will be changes required to the JB4 due to the SENT sensors on the Audi. gave BMS its 991.2 Porsche 911 project car for development but we were not able to come up with a working solution at the time. Hopefully, this will mean further development for VAG platforms and the B9 RS4/RS5 EA839 V6 will likely be the next logical step providing development for the EA838 works out.

    Over 650 horsepower from a 2.0 liter four-cylinder motor is hardly unheard of. Over 650 horsepower from the AMG M133 is unheard of although we have seen powerful built motor M133's from tuners. Extreme Tuners is based out of Greece and often makes bold claims. They have been accused of exaggerating results and speeding up videos to make their builds seem more powerful or faster than they really are. Admittedly, they do some cool stuff. Also, there are crank output graphs here to back their claim. These are from a Dynapack hub dyno. Baseline: And with their turbo upgrade: Are they telling the truth? Who knows. They do not say what they are doing to the transmission, how they are fueling it, or who is tuning it either. They also claim a 1000+ horsepower package is coming. When we see independent results that verify the claims then doubts can be alleviated. For now, it is certainly something to watch.

    What we have here is a 3.0 liter turbocharged BMW inline-6 going up against a naturally aspirated AMG V8 more than twice its size. To be fair, the I6 is boosted with a turbocharger upgrade from Pure Turbos. Depending on supporting mods that can push it into the 480 wheel horsepower range. The M156 V8 is no slouch but it is in a heavier car. AMS doesn't post a graph for their tune but we seriously doubt they are close to 480 whp and they are not known as the premier M156 tuner. The B58 dispatches it easily with just these mods: - PureTurbos Stage 1 B58 - Meth Kit - FBO - BMS JB4

    This is from Custom-Code UK who is working with Iroz Motorsport. The output here is crank but it gives you an idea of the gains. Remember, a tune only Audi TT-RS is capable of breaking into the 10's in the 1/4 mile and this looks like a pretty mild tune. The baseline figure shows just over 400 horsepower so the car is basically right on the money. Not bad for the Quattro driveline which tends to have very high losses. An RS3 sedan on the Iroz dyno puts down roughly 360 awhp to give you an idea on the crank hp correction percentage. They get an increase of 84 lb-ft of torque and also rev it out past 7k rpm. It will be good to get AWD Dynojet figures for further context but clearly the new 2.5 TFSI is bringing the heat. 500+ horsepower on pump gas with bolt ons should be fairly easy.

    Car and Driver's 2017 Aston Martin DB11 test numbers are pretty impressive. Especially when you take into account the DB11 is a 4222 pound grand touring car. That is luxury sedan and not sports car weight but a 5.2 liter twin turbo V12 moves things along. How does 0-60 in 3.6 seconds sound? How about a 1/4 mile sprint of 11.7 seconds at 125 miles per hour? Much better than MotorTrend who put out a terrible video spinning the tires and struggling to shift which produced poor results. Is the DB11 worth $221k? Well, this is a car for a connoisseur. Someone who does not necessarily care about being the fastest but wants exclusivity, style, and a prestigious overall package. It is hard to not like it for what it is. Yet, at the same time, if one puts an emphasis on driving pleasure the upcoming M177/M178 AMG 4.0 liter V8 powered model may make more sense. It will weigh less, offer better balance, and power will not be hard to come by especially with the AMG aftermarket factored in. The DB11 is an awesome GT regardless. VEHICLE TYPE: front-engine, rear-wheel-drive, 2+2-passenger, 2-door coupe PRICE AS TESTED: $221,120 (base price: $214,820) ENGINE TYPE: twin-turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 48-valve V-12, aluminum block and heads, port fuel injection DISPLACEMENT: 318 cu in, 5204 cc POWER: 600 hp @ 6500 rpm TORQUE: 516 lb-ft @ 1500 rpm TRANSMISSION: 8-speed automatic with manual shifting mode DIMENSIONS: WHEELBASE: 110.4 in LENGTH: 186.6 in WIDTH: 76.4 in HEIGHT: 50.4 in PASSENGER VOLUME: 77 cu ft TRUNK VOLUME: 10 cu ft CURB WEIGHT: 4222 lb C/D TEST RESULTS: Zero to 60 mph: 3.6 sec Zero to 100 mph: 7.8 sec Zero to 150 mph: 17.8 sec Rolling start, 5-60 mph: 4.4 sec Standing -mile: 11.7 sec @ 125 mph Top speed (drag ltd, mfr's claim): 200 mph Braking, 70-0 mph: 158 ft Roadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 0.94 g FUEL ECONOMY: EPA combined/city/hwy: 17/15/21 mpg C/D observed: 17 mpg

    WTF is this? Some idiot in San Francisco (of course it has to be San Francisco) decided to jump on top of an Aventador SV and run across it. He got away as the owner chased him but then decided to come back like a complete idiot. The owner promptly throws him to the ground and people for some reason defend the guy who can only be described as vandal at that point. The punk is playing asleep afterwards likely hoping an ambulance chaser will help make him seem to be the victim. Maybe it had something to do with the Lamborghini holding up traffic? Who knows. Either way, people who damage the property of others do not deserve sympathy but a jail sentence.

    Was definitely happy with my results. This was for my stage one. I’m currently stage 2 catless dp and water meth pre turbo injection. I would say I’m around 640ish. I’ll dyno again soon. Sorry I couldn’t figure out how to chop down the photo sizes ��,. the green line represents pre turbo meth injection, notice as the meth started the turbochargers slowed down then started to work more efficiently after. Picked up 15-40hp and held power. And that’s small nozzles without a tune for the meth. Just using it for safety
