    Nice runs here featuring a stock Porsche 991.1 Turbo S and an E90 335i N54 with upgraded turbochargers courtesy of the Pure Turbos Stage 2 package. As a reminder, the Porsche has a PDK (dual clutch) transmission and makes 550 horsepower. It also weighs just over 3500 pounds. This 335i is said to weigh in the 33XX range meaning some weight loss measures are employed. To give you an idea of what the 991.1 Turbo S can do it runs high 10's in the upper 120's in the 1/4 mile. Now, in the first run the 335i gives the 911 Turbo a beatdown but it looks like the driver was sleeping or in the wrong gear. The second run is much better and basically door to door with the Turbo edging slightly. Good runs. Automatic 335i - Pure Stage 2 turbos, FBO Inlets+outlet, JB4 19psi (map7) and race gas. (3340lbs)

    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.

    Well, the new turbocharged Ferrari is a lot stronger than the 458 it replaces that much is certain. Last month a video was posted showing a 488 GTB just crush a RUF tuned Porsche 991 Turbo S. Unfortunately, the video angle was a chase view and there was no way to know if the 911 Turbo S was actually a tuned example. These videos below confirm the previous results. The 991.1 Turbo S is the camera car and it features bolt ons including an ECU tune. It doesn't matter. What do you even say? The 488 GTB goes to warp speed pulling away. Tuned 488's are going to be tough to top if the stock cars are performing like this.

    So let's take a break in your regular BoostAddict programming to watch the following. WTF is going on here you may be saying? Good question. Someone decided to use a crane to create a swing of sorts that is powered by a sport bike. The internet can still surprise you.

    This is simply classically beautiful. You do not some crazy finish or ostentatious style to make your car look good. Less is more with a car like the AMG GT which already speaks for itself. This is a classic brushed and polished finish that looks perfect against the grey AMG GT S. The wheels are large at a 21 inch size but they look right at home on the lowered GT S. What else is there to say? It's beautiful.

    I am selling newly rebuilt turbos. The turbos were rebuilt by Pavels Racing Engines. I have not used them since the rebuild so they are like new. He also installed billet wheels that are factory spec. Turbos were also balanced. Rebuilders Website: http://pretuning.com/ He does provide warranty for a year. Contact him regarding any warranty questions and refer to his site. I am open to all offers. I have no idea what these would go for. Shoot me some offers, if I come up with a reasonable price I will edit the post. Feel free to ask for more pics.

    The other day a race video was posted showing a stock 2016 Camaro SS automatic beating a bolt on modified Mustang GT manual on E85. Well, here we again have a manual transmission Mustang except it's the GT350 model with its far more stout Voodoo V8. We also again have a stock automatic 6th gen Camaro SS. The Camaro LT1 engine is larger by a liter offering 6.2 liters of displacement over the Mustang GT350 but its 455 horsepower is less than the 526 horsepower offered by the GT350. Actually, the Mustang makes more power at the wheels than the Camaro SS does at the crank. So why does the Mustang lose from a stop to the Camaro? Because the Camaro has the fancy and quick shifting 8L90 8-speed automatic transmission. It's much easier to launch the automatic from a stop plus the LT1 offers more torque than the Voodoo V8. You combine the torque advantage and ease of launching the car with the shift speed advantage and you get what you see in the video. From a roll, the GT350 wins. Why? Because it has more horsepower and there is less shifting at higher speeds meaning less opportunities for shift speed to provide an advantage. When spending more time in gear the GT350's power advantage shows plus it is already at a higher rpm point in the powerband when at speed compared to when at a stop. Now if Ford gave the GT350 that new 10-speed automatic they have been working on...
