    Had a great time last night meeting some new people in Mexico. It was an impromptu meet so I didn't get to take any footage from my car :(. We are going to set something up in the next couple of weeks. I'll be ready with mounts and cameras etc. White e92 M3 6speed Active Autowerk level 3 SC kit Laguna Seca e92 M3 6speed Gintani Stage 2+ Red e92 M3 DCT Gintani Stage 2+ All M3s are running 91 octane and Meth. I am running e40 blend 100% Meth and Map 7 23 psi. They are very, very quick. Surprised me more than I thought to be honest. Everytime we started second gear rolls, they would get a good jump and I would play catch up. It would be hard for me to catch up though. 3rd gear rolls though I would move out pretty well, once I hit 4th gear It was over. Everyone seemed to be in the 580-600whp region. I dynoed 627 whp on Map 7 with this trim. That flatline shift bog aflatau really really hurts, it's not even funny. I've notice if I switch at 6800 rpm, it does not bog. I will have to do more testing. First and second race is Second gear roll. Red Vs White M3 Third race is Second gear roll Red M3 Vs Me. Spun pretty hard and once I hit third gear I guess it kicked me into map 4 Fourth race is second gear roll Red M3 Vs Me. I didn't realize I was kicked down to map 4 in this race lol so yea 12 psi run. Fifth race is third gear roll Red M3 Vs Me. Map 7 23 psi Good run here. Last race is all of us, second gear roll just for fun lol. There are more runs and vids from the other guys. I wish I had more to post up. Looked like the level 3 AA kit seemed to be the fastest of them all. In the end, we all had a blast. Nobody cared who's car was the fastest. I can't wait to hang out with these guys again.

    Saw this guy at the mall and I couldn't help myself. He was so playful and smart I had to have him. Very calm personality too, he quietly chills and likes to explore but never strays far. Going to be a bitch to potty train I can see but what should I name him? Been calling him tank for now.

    This is a beatdown. Protomotive builds some spectacularly fast 996 Turbos but there are also some spectacularly fast Nissan GTR's out there. This Topspeed built 4.4 liter Alpha 12 certainly qualifies. Just to give you a sensation of how bit the difference between the cars is the GTR gives the two 996 Turbos (the yellow one is the claimed 1200+ horsepower Protomotive car) a head start and the hit yet runs them down and passes them with ease. The sensation of speed conveyed by the video is astonishing. The GTR makes the two 996 Turbos looks like they are moving in slow motion. Is the Protomotive car really putting out 1200+? Or is the GTR just that much damn faster?

    For those who don't know Troy Jeup, he's an M5Board vendor and sources engines/transmissions for E60 M5 and E63 M6s. Here's a seller feedback regarding two members who bought engines from him, basically he's a crook and stay as far away from him as you can: http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/e60-m5-e61-m5-touring-discussion/303241-troy-jeup-sales-feedback.html

    APR's turbo upgrade package for the Audi TT-RS 2.5 inline-5 TFSI is very potent. The Garrett GTX3567R turbo at the heart of the upgrade is capable of producing over 600 wheel horsepower on the TT-RS. The TT-RS in the video is stated to have somewhere in the 650 all wheel horsepower range and considering the outcome of these two races there is no reason to doubt the output. The first run is against an APR Stage III supercharged B7 RS4. The RS4 is stated to be in the low 600 wheel horsepower range. Keep in mind the 4.2 liter FSI V8 is running an Eaton TVS supercharger kit so it is no slouch. The race between the two cars is close but the TT-RS has the quicker elapsed time and also traps higher at 145.68 to 143.23 for the RS4. The second run is against an HPF turbocharged E46 M3 with a 6-speed manual transmission. It is stated to be making over 600 wheel horsepower. The TT-RS makes fairly easy work of it running a 148.86 trap speed to the E46 M3 140.29. Keep in mind comparing trap speeds in roll on races is difficult due to there not being a uniform starting speed. Regardless, the TT-RS with the APR Stage III kit performs impressively.

    There was a total of 3 races. The first race was a wash due to him honking and my passenger attempting to count to 3. The second race was good and had a clean start and the third race also was good and had a clean start. The third race was shot from a chase vehicle. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYD93y8W46U

    Hey guys, I have several reasons for wanting to sell the car but most importantly I want to buy a house and could use the cash as a down payment. First off, here is a link to the build thread to see more detailed work and the quality of the work that has been done to the car. Build thread one (when I was going to do VTT S2B2) http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthread.php?42386-09-e92-335i-performance-project-VTT-S2-B2-countdown! Build thread two http://www.bimmerboost.com/showthread.php?52278-mjmarovi-s-Single-Turbo-build-at-Proven-Power-Tampa Here's some basics- 09' Single Turbo N54 e92 coupe 6AT Montego Blue Metallic with black Dakota leather interior 43,400 miles Fully Loaded with sunroof, navigation, upgraded LED halo lights, interior lights, door sill lights, auto windshield wipers, Logic 7 Harmon Kardon sound system, etc. DOES NOT HAVE BACKUP CAMERA, only option missing AFAIK Bone Stock car is valued at $24,750 Aftermarket work estimated value (lost track a long time ago)- ~$30k. ASKING PRICE- $39,500 OBO There is a ton of stuff on this car, and some stuff not installed yet. Price is negotiable, and we can negotiate what stuff you may not want and I will take it off and sell separately. I only bought the car on mother's day of last year (2013) and car was at the shop getting upgrades for 5 months of that time, always garage kept, only a weekend car, not daily driven, maintained well ahead of schedule cause of work. It has all new O2 sensors front and rear and a new LPFP sensor and exhaust vanos solenoid. HPFP was of course changed out by previous owner at ~28,000 miles if I recall the maintenance history. OK, before we get to the pics, here's a list of the exterior mods installed: Carbon Fiber Front Lip Carbon Fiber Rear spoiler Carbon Fiber Hood BC Forged 18" two-piece forged wheels. 20x9 fronts and 20x9.5 rears current tires are BFG drags on rear and Bridgestone potenza runflats 255/35r18 on front. (have black wheel locks installed and are of course included) Tinted windows by Formula1 tint lifetime high quality ceramic tint Upgraded Headlight "halo's" to LED bulbs Black Kidney Grille Painted Black mesh grills on front bumper Exterior mods that come with the car but not installed: M3 style front bumper EVO 3D carbon fiber front lip for above bumper M3 style sideskirts And now for the good stuff...performance mods: Proven Power Single Turbo bottom mount kit -Custom Manifold with ceramic coating -New hardpiping for chargepipe hotside to FMIC inlet -Wastegate "screamer pipe" exiting by bottom of downpipe -Windshield washer fluid reservoir -MAC boost solenoid -SS cooling lines for turbo I know I'm leaving things out...but can't think right now Forced Performance HTA3586r turbo (75lb/min turbo or ~750+ hp) AEM EMS standalone ECU used in conjunction with Cobb AP True 3.5bar (50psi) boost sensor Tial 38mm wastegate Tial Q Blow-Off Valve ETS chargepipe ETS 7" Front Mount Intercooler BMS 2.2 gallon methanol kit (currently disconnected, but easily reconnected and ran, was planning on upgrading to PTF PI system soon) Custom 3" stainless steel downpipe to custom midpipe Active Autowerke Dual Exhaust system Walbro 255inline low pressure fuel pump PTF billet motor mounts ECS Tuning transmission mounts Active Autowerke Strut Bar Mishimoto custom mounted Transmission cooler with upgraded DASH-10 AN connections with DASH-10 Black SS transmission fluid lines all the way back to transmission Custom VTT oil cooler thermostat delete plate with black SS oil lines BMS cabin filters and "cowl delete" I do have a Team MFactory LSD but have not had it installed. I was waiting to install along with a built transmission that will be on its way from NizPro in AUS literally at anytime. Please contact me to discuss what would happen with the transmission, the LSD is included with the car unless you don't want it for some reason. Up until I sell it I do plan on getting some dyno numbers, but while I was using the JB4 and BB Flash OTS tune I did trap 122 at 20 psi. Haven't made it back to the track or to a dyno yet since running the new tune, but literally just got it hooked up and have only gone a short cruise around town. And here's some pics!

    This race is simply a beatdown. To those that know the cars it should not be all that surprising. Both cars feature tunes from PP-Performance. The C63 AMG Black Series M156 engine is already in a high state of tune from the factory. As the 6.2 liter M156 engine is naturally aspirated and tuned aggressively by AMG there is not much room to gain power on the car. Certainly not as much room to gain with a tune as there is with the turbocharged M4. The cars put out very similar wheel horsepower figures in stock form as the C63 AMG Black Series shows ~430 wheel horsepower on a Dynojet. With a tune this can approach the 460 wheel horsepower range depending on how aggressive the timing is and the fuel quality. The stock torque figure is roughly ~405 lb-ft of torque at the wheels whereas the S55 in the M3/M4 shows 429 lb-ft of wheel torque stock. Once tuned, even with a modest tune, the M4 exceeds the C63 Black Series. Horsepower rises to over 479 at the wheels and torque at the wheels goes to 484 lb-ft. Combine the power and torque advantage with a quicker shifting dual clutch transmission and the M4's roughly 400 pound lighter curb weight and you get the result you see here. Not to mention the C63 AMG Black Series aerodynamics also create more drag. The M4 continues to pull impressively to 175 miles per hour and the C63 AMG Black Series is too far back to even be seen. AMG fans will no doubt be quick to point out that if you boost the C63 AMG Black Series things change in the other direction.

    Test and tune nights are pretty straight forward, you drive the car to the track, wait in line, make a few passes throughout the night and go home. On a hot, muggy July evening we took the shop 2014 Alpha 7 Mercedes Benz E63 AMG 4matic to our local track, Great Lakes Dragway to make some data acquisition runs before installing our new Alpha Boost Cooler system. Rain was predicted for the evening and track attendance reflected the forecast, there were very few cars running leaving the staging lanes wide open. Getting right to it Paul staged the E63 M157 BiTurbo and made a quick shakedown pass at 10.92. We checked the logs and continued to run the car making multiple 10 second passes. After making a few consistent passes most people would be satisfied and call it a night, but we had another idea, just how many 10 second passes could we run that night? The goal was set at 10 to test the consistency of our Alpha 5.5L BiTurbo tune. Pass after pass was made throughout the night and we exceeded our goal by making ELEVEN 10 second passes with a best of 10.87 @ 128.28mph, only two hundredths of a second off our current 4Matic record. Each of the 11 passes the Alpha powered AMG made was within .099 seconds and 1.32 mph of each other. In addition, the 0-60 times were all 2.86 seconds verified by the V-Box Sport. Talk about consistency!Overall we are very pleased with the results from the Alpha 7 5.5L BiTurbo package. It has proven it is capable of beating exotic cars like the McLaren MP4-12c and has performed flawlessly during all our testing. This package has been amazingly consistent and we look forward to going back to the track once the Alpha Boost Cooler system is installed and improving on our current best of 10.85 @ 129mph.

    Someone needs to buy this: http://carbuying.jalopnik.com/this-geo-metro-convertible-only-has-548-miles-and-could-1621837912/+ballaban 1991 Geo Metro Cabriolet in Ferrari Red (NOT GM rust) - 548 original miles If you are thinking of investing in this only to drive it (gasp), please be aware that it has massive power from its stock 3cyl engine that must be respected. In addition, 1991 Geo Metro Cabriolets (don't call it a convertible you uncouth bastard) were well known to be track beasts, so try not to let it out drive your skill and kiss a wall during the many driving events the GCCA (Geo Car Club of America) puts on. Everyone keeps talking about these multimillion dollar Ferraris going up at auction. Ha! This is where real money can be made. Sit on this for another 23 years and it is guaranteed to be worth at least a pack of chewing gum and half a roll of toilet paper. -Rich
