    A Mustang GT making 775 rear wheel horsepower on E85 courtesy of a Procharger at 14 psi is nothing to take lightly. Unless you happen to have an Arrow 9.0 liter stroked Gen V Dodge Viper V10 that also has upgraded heads and an aftermarket camshaft. The Viper is just brutal. It just takes off instantly and that is what you get with 9.0 liters of American muscle. A Procharger just will not offer that same instant throttle response and builds its torque toward redline. Just incredible how quick this naturally aspirated Viper is. The Viper is on NT05R tires and also has American Racing Headers, an underdrive pulley, and a titanium catback exhaust.

    You definitely do. I look forward to your data and I'll probably do a writeup on it. It's nice to see something new though. M156 tuning has been stale for quite a while.

    While you should take that quote above with a huge grain of salt (most of the "beta crew" know fuck-all about anything), it does appear that their V7 is making power over their previous tunes to the order of 20whp or so. It's the first full rewrite of their tuning, and by using HPTuners they've been able to unlock and access new areas to tune (VVT). I've got 82mm throttle bodies incoming, and once I get them on I'll book some dyno time and get a custom tune by EC and see what's going on. I keep crazy records, so should be able to post up some before/after dyno and track numbers that bound to be are better than the "butt dyno" referenced above. I'm pretty tapped out from a NA perspective, and a bit more power would be welcomed.

    I also forgot to mention, if you're running 18" or bigger wheels you can get their "oversized" front rotors. Takes you from oem size of 338x28mm to 350x28mm. This kit includes pads and a small bracket to move the caliper so you can fit the oversized rotors. They are the only company out there offering upgrades like this for us 1er's. That option is still 3-4lbs lighter per corner then oem :) http://www.racingbrake.com/Two-piece-rotor-Open-Slot-135i-Over-sized-Big-p/2232-k.htm

    Yup. You get the whole set front and rear for around $1400 with pads shipped using the gs-10 code. you can buy front BBK used for around 2k. I know it's not the cheapest option for a lot of people out there but it's a great in between. These things can take some serious abuse :)

    Not really, the only other OEM size lightweight 2 PC replacement option are the ECS ones at $500 for JUST rotors no pads. So actually very comparable in price to the other option. The ECS ones ONLY come in drilled/slotted, weigh 1.3lbs more PER side and cannot be rebuilt. They aren't cheap but they aren't overpriced either.

    Probably getting close to 1/3 or 1/2 the cost of a used bbk. Glad you like them.

    Hey guys I decided to pull the trigger on some 2 peice light weight rotors and pads from racing brake. To give you some background I do a lot of 1/2 mile racing and have warped multiple sets of rotors and cracked pads from the high speed stops. Wanted to give some initial testing feedback on the RB OE replacement rotors and high temp XT910 street pads. I did a few consecutive 130mph down to about 40mph hard stops back to back after I bead them in. On the stock 135i rotors this would have warped the rotors and cracked the pads. The RB rotors and pads took it like a champ! No pedal fade no vibrations just a crisp bite at the pedal as I expected. These rotors performed flawlessly through my stress tests and I am confident they will not warp after the next 1/2 mile event.Since the high speed stops I have done 3 separate canyon runs with the new setup, they have performed flawlessly with no squeak and much less brake dust over the oem stuff. the pedal feel is different then stock, you really have to push harder on the pedal when coming in hot which is a little weird to get used to cus the stock pads bite so hard with such little input.... Prob why they warp so easy ha! These rotors are 2 peice so when it's time for replacement you can order the rotor rings by them selves and re use the aluminum hat to cut down on replacement costs. Also these rotors shave 10-12 lbs of rotational weight in the front and another 10lbs if you choose to buy the rears also. To me that is worth it in itself. I purchased a front set first cus I didn't see a ton of independent reviews on the full kit. After about a week with the front rotors and pads I knew I had to have the rears. The look and unsprung weight savings alone is well worth the cost in my book. The front pads retain the OEM brake sensor while the rear pads do not. As far as I know Racing Brake is the ONLY company out there that makes a 2 PC light weight OE replaceable rear rotor for the 135i. You can really feel the difference with these things on all 4 corners! the car feels really light on its feet and feels like it turns in quicker. If you purchase the front and rear rotors/pads together you save also to save some additional money at check out use code GS-10. :music-rockout: Here are some pictures....

    Auto Express got their hands on these two new super sedans and decided to do a laptime comparison. Now, it is important note the Auto Express test track is tiny and seems to be go-kart sized. Not exactly a place for big and heavy sedans to really stretch their legs. We know the Panamera Turbo is very heavy from a recent test. 4593 pounds does not exactly lend itself to a nimble car. Still, Porsche does an admirable job hiding the weight and delivering superb handling. Auto Express does not weigh the cars (seriously? you call this testing?) but says the Mercedes W213 E63 AMG S is lighter. Well, how much lighter? Where is the weight? Does it have more on the nose? Both are all wheel drive but the Panamera Turbo is rated at less power and torque at 550 hp / 576 lb-ft . The Mercedes-AMG E63 S on the other hands is stated to make 603 horsepower and 627 lb-ft of torque. You would have to get them both on a dyno to know the true output. Laptimes: Panamera Turbo - 44.9 Mercedes-AMG E63 S - 44.6 Higher quality comparisons will come down the line but it is surprising to see the Mercedes take the win here.

    There's no shame in not being able to afford a Porsche. This owner of this Toyota RAV4 decided to embrace the idea. In all honesty though, if you have the means to pick up a 911, the vehicle is highly recommended.
