    *RESOLVED* DO NOT TAKE YOUR CAR TO AJE HOTI (EMP TUNING) if you value your money or vehicle. He is a scam artist and a very smooth talker. EMP Tuning is not licensed or insured and the work is done in his driveway. If something happens to your vehicle or you pay for work and he does not complete it he will block you on social media and you will take a loss as I did. I paid Aje $600 for a devils own direct port methanol injection kit $300 for installation, $150 for a thermostat installation he was not able to complete due to lack of tools. He also had a brand new forge diverter valve of mine that cost $210 he was going to sell for me due to the fact he had me purchase a part that did not work with my turbo. Our friendship diminished and I asked for my belongings and money he owes me so we can go our separate ways. Aje told me he did not owe me anything and blocked my phone number and on social media. I received only the meth kit and my vag-com i had lent him via a 3rd party and it was opened, with bags torn open inside and missing over 100 dollars of parts to make it port injection. He has made no attempt to pay me the money I had given him for work in good faith and claims everything was complete in the methanol kit. This is a person i have went above and beyond for. I have given free mounting and balancing, tires at cost, free alignment, i even let him use my $899 professional vag-com kit for 10 months when he wanted to start tuning cars and i never even asked for a dime. If he would do this to me for all i've done to him imagine what he could do to you. I had recently seen a post on his EMP TUNING facebook page about a port injection meth kit he installed on a similar engine. Now i know why my meth kit was incomplete and why he would not meet me in person to give it to me. He took my parts and sold them to another person. I waited a couple weeks and sent him a text via texting app to see when he could start paying me back and did not even receive a reply. Please take your vehicle to a licensed, insured and trusted shop not an unlicensed backyard mechanic that does mediocre work at best. I would hate to see anyone in the situation i am in.

    The other day BoostAddict posted an article regarding Weistec's legal action against Dime Research and Development or Dime Consulting. Clearly those involved with Dime realize the walls are closing in so what are they doing in the meantime while the courts play this out? BS'ing people on forums and trying to do as much damage to Weistec as possible. It's a very simple recipe and it happens more often than you think. Simply offer someone some parts for a discount or free in exchange for posting a thread including a positive review while bashing a competitor. It happens all the time. MHP was the best at this. The owner even asked me directly to create fake accounts for him on other forums so he could do this. When a ship is sinking which in this case it is a company it takes cash to stay afloat or keep the doors open. When HPF (Horsepower Freaks) was in a similar position the owner would go on the forums and post videos of how his shop was filled with cars hoping to instill confidence in potential customers. It's easy to see through the BS though if you have enough experience or have been on the forums long enough. In this instance, it was way too easy: This 'Guilty' fellow posts a graph claiming it is a C63 M177, bashes Weistec, and says how great his tune is. That tune curve looks pretty familiar though, doesn't it? Very similar but not the exact figures yet clearly an AMG GT M178 graph and not a C63 M177 graph. If it was the exact same graph as the graph Weistec advertises with that would be too obvious even to your typical forum moron. Maybe they took another run file or just changed a correction factor? If we had the actual bevvy of dyno run files from the Dynojet software testing we could prove this. Oh, it just so happens we do: That would be runfile 88 from Weistec's ECU tuning. Exact same baseline and the exact same after the tune numbers. Because it's the exact same files. This poor schmuck is either a Dime schill or he believes that is the runfile for his car. Either way the guys reading on forums just assume this is the truth and that they can get the same results as Weistec for less money. If the software is stolen and no development work took place, yep, it's possible to offer a lower price. For those who would like to verify for themselves, here are the Dynojet run files: RunFile_002_stock.drf RunFile_088_Testing.drf As stated, it's a simple recipe. Post a graph, have a few fake accounts chime in where the administration doesn't care because it's too big to care, and you get the desired result which is herding the sheep in the direction you want them to go. Now tell me, who would you trust? The company facing litigation from multiple parties with people involved accused of stealing millions and potentially funneling money overseas that advertises software they did not even develop or BenzBoost? Hmm: It seems not everyone is so easily swayed:

    Many of you have on various platforms noticed the Cobb Accesstuner Race (ATR) Software no longer is available for download. Cobb is busy updating the ATR software and it was supposed to be out in June but it looks like we will be seeing it at some point this quarter. What is the difference? One major difference is that while the software is still free to download users will be required to attend an online course they they pay for. They will then have to pass a third party evaluation to use the software. Why is this? We do not know for sure but it may have something to do with preventing people thinking they know how to tune from grenading their engines as well as emissions training. We will have to wait and find out what the course entails. More details from Cobb below. We recognize that the Accesstuner Race software has been a big part of what makes COBB Accessport tuning solutions so powerful and user friendly for the communities we support. Many have come to rely on this software to help them make small changes to COBB Off The Shelf map files to customize features like launch control, flat foot shifting, or to adjust MAF scaling. Our goal is to continue to offer this type of customization software to our end user community. After evaluating key industry trends and changes in the regulatory environment, we identified the need to update the software and provide expanded training for its use. So, in May of this year we removed the ability to download new copies of Accesstuner Race from our web site, indicated that changes were being made to the software, and it would be available again by the end of June. With that time now here, we want to provide you with an update on the progress of this project. An updated version of Accesstuner will return in the near future, be fully featured, and will continue to be offered for free to COBB Accessport customers. Because this is a powerful piece of software, we have decided that in order to fulfill our mission of delivering responsible and safe tuning solutions, we will require that end users attend a paid online training course and pass an evaluation through a third party educator in order to have access to download this free software (Accesstuner). As you can imagine, implementing these changes and setting up the online training and evaluation process takes time and involves lots of different groups both internal and external to COBB. We’ve been hard at work updating this software while creating a curriculum and bank of test questions to ensure that those who complete the course are able to safely and responsibly utilize this software. Because of the size and complexity of this project, it is taking us longer than we originally projected to complete the launch of Accesstuner and our training program. Our current timeline is for the Accesstuner software and training program to be ready for launch in the third quarter of this year. Once we are a little closer to an actual release date we will provide you with more information about the training process required for an end-user to acquire and use our Accesstuner software. We apologize that this launch has taken longer than we expected, but please know that we are very focused on getting this project completed. In the meantime, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. We appreciate your support and your patience while we make these changes.

    A few videos from my recent trip to Mexico. Stock ZR1 vs my 07 E90 335i with original RB turbos pushing 25psi. FBO, inlets, and E40 with 100 octane. Mind the horrible quality, I need a GoPro or someone to at least hold the camera while I drive lol. Him and I raced at least 10 times and were almost a dead heat every time.

    Alpine started a thread For Sale: N54 and Xi parts in Buy/Sell - Parts
    Local guys are trying to buy this stuff for next to nothing so I figure I'll give it a shot here. - N54 Ar Design Xi Catless DP's - $400 obo, they have maybe 20,000 miles on them if that and are still in fantastic shape. - N54 Stock DP's - $200 obo, honestly no idea what these should go for but they're also in great shape. No dings or dents etc. - Stock N54 turbos - $150 for the set obo, inspected upon removal by my shop. Good condition despite less than 70k miles on them (never ran more than Cobb OTS E30 race map software with them for just under 30k miles). Wastegate actuators will most likely need to be replaced as they do rattle but still hold boost just fine. No smoking, no bs with these. - BMS DCI's - Free to the first person that requests them with any of the other parts. Good condition, just need to be cleaned and recharged. - Howerton Engineering Aquamist HS-4 NEVER INSTALLED kit with 3 nozzles spec'd for N54 use + Howerton Engineering twin tank with cooling fan - $750 shipped for everything. The tank I picked up from a friend cleaning out his garage for $100. It works perfectly, just has visible paint scratches and scrapes on the outside from install and removal on his car. This kit still sells for over $800 + shipping without the tank. I'm going a different route than I originally planned so this is just taking up space in my garage now. Thanks for looking, any questions or photos, just ask.

    Congratulations to Autowerks Automotive in Australia who showed it is indeed possible to run 9's on the stock M156 engine internals. We knew this would be coming as just earlier this year an Australian C63 with the Weistec Stage III setup ran 10.1 @ 139. The difference here is better conditions and custom tuning by Autowerks Automotive. Full specs: Weistec Stage 3 Built transmission 60mm pulley Race fuel ( 17 inch slicks Hoosier Skinny fronts Stock M156 internals 655 rear wheel horsepower Exhaust cut out's Weight reduction including removed back seats This is a P31 package car which means stronger engine internals borrowed from the SLS M159. Congratulations to all involved and on the quickest stock internal C63 in the world.

    Here we go again. In case you forgot BMW previously supplied Jaguar/Land Rover with a V8. Specifically the naturally aspirated M62 V8 for the 2002-2005 Range Rover. Jaguar and Land Rover developed their AJ133 5.0 liter direct injected V8 architecture after this. Keep in mind BMW owned the Rover Group for six years selling their majority stake in 2000 but continuing to supply transmissions, electronics, and motors. BMW still holds a stake today. Now, this is pretty good news for everyone. Jaguar and Land Rover will finally get a more modern architecture with turbos as their supercharged V8 quite simply is overmatched by their German turbo V8 competition. The N63TU and S63TU aftermarket will expand which is good for tuners and good for BimmerBoost with Jaguar fans no doubt looking into tuning. This is all very early and we will have to see what models get the engine. BMW is updating the S63TU for the next generation M5. It's possible Jaguar will receive this variant. This certainly is cheaper than Jaguar/Land Rover developing a new turbo V8 and BMW's motor is proven. Source

    Some of you know of the rider here who goes by the name 'Ghostrider' in videos. For those who do not know him do a search on Youtube and videos will pop up showing him hitting insane speeds on the public streets, barely missing cars, and running from the police. This is dangerous and some people will obviously feel he should be locked up. Others might respect the balls (and skill) it takes to pop wheelies at over 160 miles per hour. Some might feel this is just an accident waiting to happen. However you feel it certainly is hard to resist watching this. Some of his classic rides for those unfamiliar:

    What someone should do to convert the gas-friendly fueling system to E85 friendly? I have a friend who want to run in his spec racing class and they require the fuel pump to be OEM. What exactly is needed to turn a pump into E85 friendly? Washers and gaskets i believe, right? What if we run OEM pump for one race, will the pump fail instantly?

    Why? Because they can is probably the answer. Auto Express at least admits this is an odd comparison. What it does indeed show is just how much the SUV has evolved and how sporty the Macan Turbo is. It gives the M2 a very good fight despite more weight and a higher center of gravity. Auto Express states the cars are even in a straight line but why don't they show the acceleration comparison in the video? Just another example of low quality testing metrics from Auto Express. Based on the stats the Macan Turbo with its 3.6 liter 400 horsepower V6 definitely out powers the BMW F87 M2 and its 365 horsepower (slightly underrated) N55B30T0 3.0 liter turbo inline-6. Although, it's probably closer than people realize as the M2 sends its power to the rear wheels and not all four like the Macan meaning greater drivetrain efficiency. This M2 is a manual transmission example though and if it had a dual clutch transmission like the Macan Turbo the difference on the track would be greater than what we see here. The M2 laps at 46.19 seconds to the Macan Turbo's 46.7. On a longer track the difference would be exaggerated. With laps taking well under a minute can you even call this a real roadcourse? Impressive performance by the Macan Turbo but a track car it is not being a 4200+ pound SUV. Then again, is the M2 truly a track car at its 3411 curb weight?

    That is what the video shows here. These two heavyweights go at it from a stop and the Porsche gets an initial lead only for the Ferrari to quickly reel it in and pull away. It's a shocking beatdown considering this is not a stock Porsche 991.1 Turbo S in the video. Supposedly this Turbo S has a RUF tune. We do not know how aggressive the RUF tune is on the 991.1 Turbo S but we do know a flash tuned 991.1 Turbo S is capable of 600 lb-ft of torque at the wheels along with 500 horsepower at all four wheels. The Ferrari 488 GTB in stock form has 535 horsepower and 495 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. It definitely should have trouble from a stop with a tuned Porsche 991.1 Turbo S or at least take longer to reel it in and pass. This certainly will have the Ferrari fanboys beating their chests:

    This should easily favor the Mustang considering the Camaro SS is stock. It's certainly no slouch in stock form with 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque from the naturally aspirated 6.2 liter LT1 V8 engine. That is more than a stock Coyote 5.0 in the Mustang which offers 435 horses and 400 lb-ft of torque. This Mustang is tuned however. It has aftermarket headers, a full exhaust, an E85 tune from Lund Racing, and it is a 6-speed manual example. The Camaro SS is an automatic example with the 8L90 8-speed box. So what explains the Mustang losing here? Shouldn't it win? Yes, it should, but this is yet another example of a modern automatic offering a large advantage in performance over a manual transmission. The 8L90 8-speed auto in particular is claimed to offer dual clutch transmission level performance (GM says it is superior to a Porsche PDK in shift speed) and it certainly performs well. It's interesting to note that even from a roll the Mustang can not win. The only race the Mustang wins is when the Camaro launch control engages too late and the Mustang gets a head start. It would be nice to see automatic vs. automatic in the future and what the difference would be.

    I would really like to hear your recommendations on tires that are effective for a FBO+inlets E70 car making over 500wtq. I'm in Southern California so it doesn't snow, and it probably rains like a month in the whole year. I do not plan on tracking the car and no canyon driving. Here's my list and tire size I'm looking to put on the rears. Please let me know if you recommend anything outside of what I've listed. 275/30ZR19 (96Y) XL Pirelli Zero Nero GT 275/30R19 (96Y) Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 275/30ZR19 NITTO EXTREME NT555 275/30ZR19 CONTINENTAL EXTREME CONTACT DW 275/30ZR19XL Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 275/30ZR19XL Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 Plus 275/30ZR19XL Michelin Pilot Super Sport 275/30ZR19 Nankang NS-20 Thanks

    It looks like somebody actually made a twin turbo Mercedes-AMG SLS happen. Yes, World Motorsports was working on a twin turbo SLS AMG M159 V8 way back in 2012 but for whatever reasons that project was quietly abandoned. It seems GAD was able to accomplish what World could not. There is little info out there about this car other than it is still on the stock transmission, stock engine internals, and the stock fuel system. GAD will offer built motor packages with an upgraded fuel system and upgraded transmission components that will take the M159 into the stratosphere. For now, the performance of their upgrade looks pretty solid considering the acceleration video below. Hopefully GAD will provide BenzBoost with more details.

    What you have here are two supercharged E90 M3's running the same ESS-Tuning VT2-625 E9X M3 S65 V8 supercharger kits. The camera car is the DCT M3 and it belongs to BimmerBoost member @dnotorious and he ran an E90 M3 with the 6-speed manual transmission. Even though both cars have the same supercharger kit with the same boost the manual will make slightly more power due to lower drivetrain losses. It's interesting to note what a big difference shift speed makes though as the DCT car just pulls away. Some people still doubt the performance advantage afforded by dual clutch transmissions. The video speaks for itself.

    Some fun runs here showing a stock turbo E90 335i going up against a pair of second generation LSA CTS-V's with unknown mods. The camera car also runs a stock 2nd gen CTS-V as well as a VVT Stage 1 upgraded E90 335i N54. Here are the specs on the camera car: 2010 Black Sapphire Metallic E90 335i - 435/499 FBO, JB4/MHD, 21psi stock turbos/inlets, E60 Fuel STG 2 LPFP, 3340lbs How does it do? Well, it gets pulled hard by the two modded CTS-V's. The torque difference is very apparent when they go from a stop. Simply too much to overcome on the stock turbochargers. Against a stock 2nd gen CTS-V though the E90 335i makes easy work of it showing just how much faster the modded Cadillac's are. The final run is against an E90 335i with full bolt ons, anti-lag, inlets, VVT Stage 1 turbochargers, and E60 fuel. The E90 camera car makes easy work of it.
