    Pure Performance Motorsport in Australia has various stroker kits for BMW motors. One that caught the eye of BimmerBoost is their 5.0 liter stroker kit for the 4.4 liter S63TU engine in the BMW F10 M5 and F12/F13 M6 models. Let's look at the specs: Bore:92mm with Custom Darton Sleeves / Stroke: 94mm Compression Ratio: 10:1 or 9.3:1 PPM Racing Australia EN40B Billet Crankshaft with our special surface finishing PPM Racing Australia Ultimate Forged Pistons with 2x coatings,H13 pins and NPR Rings PPM Racing Australia Ultimate 300M Connecting Rods with our special surface finishing Balanced and blueprinted Race Engine ARP Custom Head and Main stud kit Custom Racing Harmonic Balancer ACL Racing Bearings Custom Turbo Camshafts Custom Racing Inconel Oversize Valves Custom Valve Springs Custom Titanium Retainers New Valve Stem Seals Custom MLS Head Gasket to suit larger Bore Stage 6 cylinder head porting and Polishing Serdi throat ports Measure new valve guide interference , liquid nitrogen shrink fit new valve guides Size and hone finish valve guides Trim valve guide stem seal end for valve spring retainer to stem seal clearance Serdi seat work Rottler S7M machine head gasket surface with our MLS head gasket finish Thermal barrier coat combustion chambers Thermal barrier coat intake ports Thermal barrier coat exhaust ports Thermal barrier coat inlet valve heads upto valve guide on valve stem Thermal barrier coat exhaust valve heads upto valve guide on valve stem Flow bench test after Ok, that is a nice list of components. There are options listed there such as the head work. The 92mm bore and 94mm stroke exceed the factory configuration of 89x88.3mm respectively. The entire assembled S63TU motor with the options listed above is $40k+. The rotating assembly alone makes more fiscal sense. Is it worth $18000 to go to 5.0 liters? Are there even any results for this motor? How does the cost compare to BPC's option? Those who will want to look into this are those who exceed or are preparing to considerably exceed 700 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. This is a nice rotating assembly for someone shooting for that 1000+ whp mark. The Darton sleeves, forged pistons, forged rods, and forged crankshaft will all be appreciated at that point. Now, who wants to be the guinea pig?

    Is there anything better than M3 vs. C63 battles? BMW M vs. AMG? It's always great to see. BMW is getting a lot of grief in the turbo M era but there is no denying it is easier to make power with the M3 than ever before. Just look at this PTF (Pro Tuning Freaks) tuned F80 M3 S55. The M3 features a Bootmod3 OTS E85 S55 map. That means it is not custom tuned. Boost is around 25 psi. The C63 has unknown mods but the M177 V8 is said to be tuned to 550 rear wheel horsepower which is about right but of course it depends on the quality of the tune, fuel, and supporting mods. Unfortunately, the video does not have any sound. However, since it is a chase video anyway this is not a big deal. Not exactly high quality but you see the M3 pull away. There is something still to be said for having a lighter and more efficient package. A traditional M3 strength.

    If you thought the 454 wheel horsepower pull for an APR Stage III+ Volkswagen MKVII Golf GTI on 93 octane pump gas was incredible prepare to be impressed further. HS Tuning was able to coax 474 wheel horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque at the wheels out of a similar setup on another GTI. This is quite close to 500 at the wheels on pump gas. I mean, what do you even say? It's incredible. Here are the mods: The fueling upgrade obviously helps tremendously. The Stage III+ is just a very solid setup for the MKVII and is showing great numbers.

    For some reason everyone is running with the narrative that the 'Competition Package' for the Ford GT sharpens the car further by reducing weight substantially. Ford claims the weight is 3054 pounds dry which is the exact same as the Competition Series Package car.. What the Competition Series includes is the following: Standard Lightweight Gloss Carbon Fiber Wheels with Titanium Lug Nuts Standard Titanium Exhaust System with Unique Titanium Tips Unique Lightweight, Race Inspired Engine Hatch with Perspex Cover and Manual Latch Bulkhead Fitted with Lightweight Gorilla Glass Unique Exposed Gloss Carbon Fiber Stripe Exposed Gloss Carbon Fiber Lowers, Mirror Caps and A-Pillars Available in Shadow Black, Frozen White, Ingot Silver, Liquid Blue, Liquid Grey and Triple Yellow Lightweight Ebony Black Alcantara Seats, Instrument Panel and Headliner Exposed Carbon Fiber Console, Air Registers and Door Sills Anodized Red Paddle Shifters, Anodized Red Instrument Panel Chassis Badge, and Red Pedal Adjustment & Emergency Door Release Pull Straps Matte Dark Stainless Bezels, Finishers and Seat X-Brace Unique Instrument Panel Plate and Steering Wheel Bezel Incremental Weight Saving Actions Including Deleted A/C and Radio Hardware The weight savings are listed as 'incremental' by deleting the AC and radio. The 3054 pound dry weight Ford lists for the GT was actually measured on a Competition Package car. That means it will be the lightest the GT gets. It also means the standard cars will be heavier and likely 3200+ with fluids. If you were expecting a sub-3000 pound GT, that unfortunately is not the case.

    Not sure what this is in response to since you didn't use the quote feature of the board, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt since you're new and give you some rep back so you can post.

    We also don't know if the GTR was on pump gas. Pump gas FBO GTR and E85 FBO GTR are two COMPLETELY different animals.
