    I asked about 20's previously but I'm going to get 21's. Why? Well, 20's come stock and moving up one size really will offer the looks I'm going for. There is no point sticking to 20's as I'll have a separate set of smaller rims for competition purposes. No point in trying to do everything on 20's as it makes more sense to have a set for the street and for the strip/competition. I still want light rims though. I just can't find a lightweight 21 inch set. Suggestions? I contacted Velos but they can't deliver the rims I want in a 21 inch monoblock but instead need to do a heavier two-piece. So they are out.

    It was just a matter of time. Congratulations to TPG Tuning and everyone involved on having the first 9 second BMW F82 M4 as well as the first 9 second S55 pass. This is overall the quickest and fastest F82 M4, F80 M3, or S55 powered BMW. Just a couple of weeks ago TPG Tuning pulled a 10.06 @ 139.41. Before that, they ran a 140.42 trap speed being the first to crack the 14X.XX barrier. Now they topped both of those accomplishments: The mod list once again: TPG Tuning built Pure Turbos Fuel-It port injection Dodson Motorsports DCT upgrade Sheptrans Burger Motorsports HC Performance - Halim Cazimi Driveshaft Shop Evolution of Speed Fathouse Fabrications P&R Engine Where do we go from here? We'll have to wait and see. However, no reason to stop now.

    Finally! GIAC released their ECU flash tuning software for the 991.2 Carrera 9A2 3.0 engine. The gains are massive. First, let's take into account that the baseline figures are on a Mustang dyno and very similar to what Porscheboost hit on a Mustang dyno with 91 octane pump gas. The baseline figure is 347 wheel horsepower and 326 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. With the tune? Horsepower jumps up by 54 at the wheels but the torque gain is just shy of 100 lb-ft at the wheels: That is a massive gain down low! The car sees gains throughout the curve as well but that torque hit at 3000 rpm is absurd. In a good way of course. Now how does this compare to the GIAC tuned 991.2 Carrera S? Well, only a Dynojet graph was released for the Carrera S without the torque curve included. PorscheBoost e-mailed GIAC for 991.2 Carrera S Mustang figures. Additionally, PorscheBoost e-mailed GIAC to try this tune out on the PorscheBoost Project 991.2 Carrera but GIAC has yet to respond. What about a race gas tune as well? So far there are only 91 octane numbers being shared. It is good to see the 991.2 tuning market getting going.

    Get used to seeing this. Electric compressors that will force air into the motor have some advantages namely over turbochargers. Boost in theory will be instant as you do not have to wait as you do with a turbocharger for exhaust gases to spool the wheels. The downside of course is complexity, capability, and cost. What does something like this eBooster flow? We do not know. BorgWarner conveniently omitted specifications only saying that three major manufacturers will be using the eBooster which is expected to provide efficiency gains of 10%. That means this is going to primarily be a fuel efficiency technology and not a performance technology. It would be interesting to see a couple electric compressors used to offset lag from a big turbo setup. An electric compressor does not bring with it the weight and associated batteries of an electric motor. It still feeds an internal combustion engine making it a somewhat natural pairing if the amount of electricity needed is not exorbitant. Mercedes discussed introducing 'electric turbochargers' a couple years ago and it seems now they are finally reaching a production example. BorgWarner’s eBooster® Electrically Driven Compressor Celebrates Premiere - Nearly instant boost and torque for a fun-to-drive-experience - Enables small-engine fuel economy with big-engine boost - Improves performance for combustion and hybrid vehicles Auburn Hills, Michigan, April 28, 2017 – BorgWarner, a global leader in clean and efficient technology solutions for combustion, hybrid and electric vehicles, debuts its 48-volt eBooster® electrically driven compressor in Daimler’s latest 3.0-liter gasoline engine. The engine will feature the eBooster technology matched with a BorgWarner-supplied turbocharger to improve fuel efficiency, enhance low-end torque and deliver boost on demand without any perceptible turbo lag. “Our market-leading eBooster technology enables 6-cylinder engines to deliver the same performance and even more fun-to-drive experience as a much larger conventional V8,” said Frédéric Lissalde, President and General Manager, BorgWarner Turbo Systems. “By enabling engine downsizing, eBooster technology improves fuel efficiency by 5 to 10 percent in combustion and hybrid vehicles.” BorgWarner’s eBooster electrically driven compressor delivers boost on demand until the turbocharger takes over, improving boost at low engine speeds and nearly eliminating turbo lag.

Mass production of BorgWarner’s eBooster solution is currently ramping up with the innovative system launching first with three global automakers, including Daimler.

    An easy 700+ whp N54? Well, you could call this that. The recipe is fairly simple with an ACF 6266 single turbo kit, 50% E85, methanol, and JB4 tuning with the BimmerBoost app providing a back end flash. This setup provides great performance value for the money. Plus it's paired with a quality manifold and turbocharger choice. Read further details from BMS below: Had a chance to tune a customer car today running an ACF 6266 twin scroll kit, 50% E85, WMI with dual CM10 nozzles. Manual trans and the usual bolt on mods. Overall a fairly inexpensive and simple setup. Tuning via JB4 and BimmerBoost back end flash map. Running map8 progressive meth safety map with a 65 additive. As you can see the limiting factor was fueling... Port injection in this cars future. Easily another 50whp in this little 6266 G2 and it spools really well. Also the customer did not like the linear throttle mapping we have in our default maps so I gave him a more aggressive non-linear mapping. I'm going to be adding it to the default maps as a map option but if anyone does not like the linear mapping we have now in the single turbo firmware drop me an email and I can shoot over a more aggressive mapping you may prefer.

    This is absolutely incredible. Not only because the numbers are strong but because there is no supplemental methanol injection involved or port fuel injection for that matter. This B58 motor is still on the factory fuel system. That makes the 534 wheel horsepower and 501 lb-ft of torque at the wheels all the more impressive: Big Boost Turbo hits these figures with their Stage 3 B58 turbo upgrade, BMS intake, a catless downpipe, and a JB4: BMS previously stated the B58 has a fueling cap around 400 whp so how they are comfortably exceeding that number is anyone's guess. The B58's tuning future sure is looking bright though.

    VTT (Vargas Tuning Technologies) is mostly known on BimmerBoost for their N54 work but their S55 turbo upgrade program is getting going. Really getting going as their Stage 2 turbocharger upgrade set a new stock internal record for the S55 motor at 734 wheel horsepower and 762 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. More details from VTT below: We finally got around to finishing up the testing our on S55 Stage turbo's, and the results as we expected. We picked up the Stock motor S55 power record, previous it was 728, we made 734WHP, and 729WHP on two different pulls this am. We also managed to make 762WTQ on a more aggressive throttle map. Also if anyone wants to say glory pulls, here are 10 runs all above 700WHP from yesterday and this am. The 734WHP, and 729WHP runs were made on the E30 OTS BM3 map, no special tuning, the problem is the E30 scaler is too low up top, and even with PI adding a ton of fuel, we are just plain out of fuel. Dzenno gave us a map with better E85 scaler, more aggressive throttle, and 2-3 degrees less timing, it picked up the tq down low, and it pulls clean all the way up every run. The E30 OTS map is prob a little aggressive timing wise for these boost levels so we wont run it there, custom maps are always better for these levels. As you can see car is making 500WTQ by around 3300, and 700 by 3800K. This is a solid 500+ RPM better spool than the other turbos you see on the market. A big thanks of course To Dzenno at BM3 for the help, its fun working with him again! Also to Terry, Mike at EOS, and Bell intercoolers for the great intercooler. Not to mention the owner who let us use his car as a test bed! There is one S55 making more power at 745WHP (11WHP more), which is a fully built motor, fully ported head, 9 second race car, and one car making more Power / TQ at 763WHP/776WTQ (14WTQ more) and its running a 100 shot of NOS. Impressive? We think so...:eusa-clap: We will be getting this car to the track, and 1/2 mile events very soon. Specs are as follows 2015 BMW M4 DCT Dodson Sportsman Clutch upgrade 100% Stock motor Stock Crank hub VTT Stage2 turbos VTT silicone charge pipes BMS intakes Aftermarket downpipes Catless exhaust EOS V2 top mount PI manifold PFS Double Shot LPFP Upgrade VTT / Bell Air to Water intercooler Custom BM3 flash by Dzenno JB4 100% E85 Boost level 34-35 psi Log: http://www.datazap.me/u/vargasturbotech/vtt-s55-run-34-723whp745wtq?log=0&data=1-4-5-10-12-14-18-24

    Today I went to a private exotic car quarter mie drag race at a 3,000 foot runway and finally, got to try out my Champion 68mm VTG Turbo Upgrade with race gas (Sunoco GT 260 Plus) and my new rear R888s. Wow! Between the R888s and the Turbo upgrade with race gas the performance was in a complete different universe than on Stage 2+ with stock turbos, race gas and regular summer tires.The car finally hooked every time on launch and accelerated like I have never felt before. There was no timing by but the 1/4 flag my speedo indicated 140 mph -- 10 mph faster than I have ever done on that runway with my car.I had 9 races. I won all of them except against a 1000 plus hp Jeep on high boost that was towed to the event and during the race I lost to him was making a very loud whooshing sound which I thought was supplemental fueling. As the attached videos show the margins of victory were massive. Thank you Tom and Champion!!!Here are the vids:1. *EDIT* Videos are below

    Much respect here to @TwistedTuning, @DOCRace, and BimmerBoost member @psmith95 as this is his car after all. The all wheel drive 'xi' models are a bit more difficult to put big power down with. Why? The stress on the drivetrain. A big single with a ton of torque on a 335xi that is launched hard will likely break things quicker than a rear wheel drive example that can send that power up in smoke. All wheel drive brings traction benefits but there are pluses and minuses as with any setup. @Kirk@DOCRace posted a thread on the BimmerBoost forums regarding this car but it was with a virtual dyno. Now that we have Dynojet graphs to prove the numbers, it shows the speculation about this car making close to 700 horsepower at all four wheels was accurate: Accurate, and an all wheel drive platform record unless someone can prove otherwise. Congratulations to all involved!

    The only thing better than race videos with high end hardware is more race videos with high end hardware. Evolve's F10 M5 attended a VMAX event a couple months back and some of those runs were detailed in a previous article. Although a few runs overlap there are some incredible cars in the video below. The event definitely attracts some fast and rare hardware. As a reminder, here are the mods to Evolve's F10 M5: Evolve Stage 2 + ECU Tune Evolve Catless Downpipes Supersprint Rear Exhaust Eventuri Intakes 93 OCT (99RON) Fuel Pirelli Trofeo-R Tyres Stock Clutch It is very stout for the factory turbochargers. The first race is against an F82 M4 with Evolve and JB4 tuning. The M4 does very well off the line and it takes a while for the M5 to start to run it down. Next up is a 991.1 GT3 RS and, well, it's not much of a race. The previously posted Huracan race is next and the M5 makes easy work of it as well. A tall order is up next in the McLaren 675LT. This is a very fast car in stock form. The cars are surprisingly close but the 675LT has a slightly higher trap speed. The next run is with a Weistec Stage III supercharged M156 W204 C63 Black Series. The C63 pulls hard. Maybe having three passengers wasn't the greatest idea for this run? Just an incredibly strong C63 AMG. The RS6 and Huayra runs were previously posted. A great video showing the event off and obviously a rapid and well tuned F10 m5.

    With modern adjustable suspension systems the software settings for the hardware are obviously very important. How about improving your suspension performance with just some software changes? How about sharing those calibrations as some people share tunes? Imagine a calibration specifically for a certain track. Great for the roadcourse guys, right? Well, DSCsport allows exactly that. They have what they call their DSC Controller in Version 1 and 2 modules: You install the controller and then can download various calibration maps. You can tweak the calibrations yourself as well or go with their OTS maps. How potent are these calibrations? According to DSCsport a stock 2015 Nissan GTR Nismo with a DSCsport V1 controller and their tuning software lapped VIR (Virginia International Raceway) in 2:01.5: For context, a 2:01.5 around VIR is nuts. If you look at Car and Driver's results in the past years Lightning Lap competition at VIR a 2:01.5 puts the DSCsport GTR 42.7 seconds ahead of the Viper ACR. How is that possible? With just some suspension tuning the GTR destroys the Viper ACR by over half a minute? Conditions and driver skill are huge factors but it's hard to believe the DSCsport module makes that kind of difference. EDIT: The full VIR course is not the Grand course which is the full length. That explains the massive time difference. Here is the lap video backing up the time: It would have been great if they did a before/after lap but we have what we have. DSCsport offers these controllers for select Chevrolet, Porsche, Nissan, and Ford models. Hopefully there is more independent testing of these modules and their impact on laptimes.

    ABR Houston is able to build your N54 motor in a variety of ways. They have several options to choose from. As the N54 is an open deck block some high power N54's run into issues with cylinders flexing under load. Basically, you can start here and choose options for your build: http://www.abrhouston.com/build-your-own-n54/ Let's go over three main options: THE MERCENARY $1999.95* Bare Bones Closed Deck Block What’s Included? CNC closed deck conversion Hone the cylinders to equal size and provide the cylinder bore size Replace oil galley plugs Deck the cylinder block with our custom deck plate THE HITMAN $3349.95* Closed deck conversion with crank installed What’s Included? CNC closed deck conversion Hone the cylinders to equal size, and provide the cylinder bore size Deck the cylinder block with our custom deck plate Check and if needed, straighten crank Refurbish the crankshaft, and polish the journals Replace oil galley plugs Clean all oil passages Inspect crank sensor tone wheel Measure and decode block and crankshaft Balance crankshaft and pistons to .5 gram Replace main bearings Replace and torque bedplate bolts Replace and torque main bolts Install front and rear main seals Install bedplate injection plugs, and seal bedplate Check turning torque of rotating assembly THE PUNISHER $4999.95* Assembled Short Block With Stock Rods & JE Pistons Exchange engine program! The fastest way to get back on the road! What’s Included? CNC closed deck conversion Hone the cylinders to equal size, and provide the cylinder bore size Deck the cylinder block with our custom deck plate Check and if needed, straighten crank Refurbish the crankshaft, and polish the journals Clean all oil passages Replace oil galley plugs Inspect crank sensor tone wheel Measure and decode block and crankshaft Balance crankshaft and pistons to .5 gram Install stock compression JE pistons File fit piston rings to each cylinder Replace Main bearings Replace and torque bedplate bolts Replace and torque main bolts Install front and rear main seals Install bedplate injection plugs, and seal bedplate Check turning torque of rotating assembly Depending on options things go up from there. You can add headwork, Pauter rods, or Schrick cams for example. The end goal is up to the customer. In today's age of big power N54's engine builds are becoming far more common. ABR Houston in particular has a lot of experience in this area.

    The proof is in the timeslips, isn't it? You can argue about dyno plots and mix and match results to try to claim one E9X M3 S65 V8 supercharger kit is better than another but it is very difficult to argue against someone trying out two different kits and posting the results from the same car at the same track. That is exactly what BimmerBoost member @dnotorious did. In his own words: The Rotrex blower of the Active Autowerke kit offers much more mid-range torque than the Vortech V3si based ESS-Tuning kit. There is something to be said for area under the curve. Look at his dyno plot: 621 horsepower at the wheels on a Dynocom but look at that torque curve. BimmerBoost has said it once and will say it again, Active Autowerke offers the best looking torque curve for a supercharged S65 V8 in the business. That is of course speaking of a stock internal S65 which the Rotrex blower seems to pair perfectly with. Ok, dyno plots are one thing. What about actual 1/4 mile times? He picked up ~5 miles per hour of trap speed and 3 to 4 tenths of a second on street tires: Feel free to argue with the timeslips but picking up that kind of trap speed is no small feat. Great comparison data and great independent results.

    Maybe the factory BMW S63TU turbochargers can be pushed this far but is it really a good thing? To hit a glory pull peak figure like this would require pushing the turbos far out of their efficiency range. The number looks nice on the graph but is this really realistic F10 M5 performance? This is the claimed mod list: F10 M5 on Stock Turbos and No BEF JB4 and BMS chargepipes MSR intakes Akrapovic exhaust Fabworx downpipes Custom meth system installed by TNT Racewerks Tuned by TNT Racewerks MS109E with 3 gallons of e99 M1 Meth Tuners and owners alike need to get out of the habit of posting a cell phone snap of a dyno plot and then claiming some sort of record. Where is the torque curve? What is the correction factor? Where are the boost and air/fuel graphs? Where is a log? How lean is this thing running? If someone wants to claim a world record with this they can go ahead but there does not appear to be anything to be proud of here other than a meaningless glory pull. A quality tuner would never put their name on it.

    Finally some performance results for a tuned Porsche 991.2. This is a C4S variant which of course means all wheel drive. It definitely does not have trouble putting the power down as the 1.667 short time on street tires shows. The overall 1/4 mile result is an 11.196 @ 122.39. In other words, the C4S and Carrera S look to be 10 second capable tune only. This is a pump gas result after all and who knows what it will do with a race gas tune and full bolt ons. The trap speed is not a big increase. Clearly, GIAC is adding torque down low which shows in the elapsed time. The preliminary dynograph GIAC released though shows some large top end gains but it does not have a torque curve included in the graph. This is very early on in 9A2 3.0 tuning with plenty more to come. The result does bode well for the platform regarding bolt on performance and beyond.

    AWRON in Germany offers various BMW engine swap packages. They provide the electronics to make it all happen including the engine management. You may remember their N63 twin turbo V8 swap into an E63 6-Series chassis from earlier this year. This time they may have outdone themselves. The N54 is a questionable choice for something like an E9 but there is no denying this is a cool swap. This appears to be a replica CSL but who cares? It's awesome. With 449 to the tires it is going to move well and if the owner wants more power he can get it. Whether the chassis can cope with it is a different matter entirely. The engine package electronics have the following characteristics: Motor control fully OBD, EOBD can be diagnosed. DSC is disabled Secondary air deactivated Configuration Diagnostics Control unit network adapted for self-sufficient use Subsequent motor probes Diagnostics and function deactivated Configuration on manual gearbox The N54 engine package has all the characteristics of a standard vehicle which is necessary for the fully functional engine operation. Furthermore, all existing motor protection functions correspond to the series, functional and active to ensure protection against motor damage. The kit is designed to allow you to install it in a variety of BMW models and connect it to the existing wiring system.

    This is a big, heavy, German tank and we love it. BMW might not make an M7 for whatever reason (but M SUV's make sense) however the G11 M760Li is the closest thing and basically an M7 in all but the name. The 6.6 liter N74B66TU powerplant is a powerhouse with 602 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. That big motor moves the big all wheel drive 7-Series with ease. AutoTopNL runs it to the limiter at 162 miles per hour. That speed is reached in roughly 22 seconds. This is an autobahn cruise missile. Imagine one with a tune?

    This Porsche 991.1 Turbo S belongs to PorscheBoost member @Markblackwell. Readers have enjoyed watching his car progress through the various tuning stages. He made 665 to all four wheels on a Mustang dyno which was then pushed to 747 to the tires. He also ran 9's and topped 144 miles per hour of trap speed in the 1/4 mile. Since that time his engine was built and he also upgraded the PDK transmission with parts from Dodson. Well, now the car is making 819 all wheel horsepower. The torque figure is 782 lb-ft at all four wheels. That is on a Mustang dynamometer and what the Dynojet output would be is anyone's guess. That figure is probably somewhere in the 9XX range. What will it hit now in the 1/4 mile? Hopefully we find out soon but he is likely close to the 150 trap speed range. Simply a beast of a 991.1 Turbo.

    BMS speculated that a 3.5bar TMAP sensor would have a big impact on their 2016 BMW F10 550i. They were right. This car is now making 601 rear wheel horsepower and 637 lb-ft of torque at the wheels on a Dynojet in STD correction. Remember, this car started at 511 rear wheel horsepower with the JB4. BMS added their BCM (boost control module) and increased things to 570 rear wheel horsepower. Well, now with the 3.5bar TMAP sensor power tops 600 to the tires: This is a budget M5 with more torque. You can see how it runs against an F10 M5 before the TMAP upgrade here. The turbos look to be at about their limit but the torque curve is much better looking than previous efforts and holding over a wider period which results in the power gains. A great tuning value on the factory turbochargers but it would be great to see what it does with a turbo upgrade.

    Hey folks, Going to do a full stage 2 ECU tune with downpipes etc, so I am selling my piggy back tune. Wrote a review on it in the m276 dela30 turbo forum. Makes C400 0-60 around 4.1-4.3 and 1/4 mile around 12.7. Also improves daily driving experience. Power settings are fully adjustable (takes 3 minutes) to accommodate for driving characteristics ad type of fuel. This works with the c400, c450, cls400 and asked my friend who is a master mechanic at the local MB dealership who said it is literally impossible to detect (unless they see it connected on the car or ship the ECU to Germany). Selling on ebay for $750 with free shipping, which is 1/2 the cost of new ($1450 from Kleemann USA). See link below. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mercedes-Kleemann-Kbox-400CGI-plug-and-play-tune-/282452296732?_trksid=p2385738.m2548.l4275

    Many of you know the camera car in this video which belongs to BimmerBoost member @gzim335. He is getting supercharged soon but that hasn't stopped him from doling out plenty of kills while naturally aspirated with bolt ons against cars people said he shouldn't be able to beat. The S65 V8 may not be a powerhouse in today's turbo market but it is still plenty potent and with E85 tuning it is possible to pick up roughly 50 wheel horsepower with bolt on modifications to put it in the ~400 whp range. That is great power from a 4.0 liter NA V8. Just look at the difference between the tuned M3 and the stock M3. It's no contest. Yes, the camera car has some weight loss measures but the driver is well over 200 pounds. 2011 E92 M3 ZCP DCT Gintani tune E85 flex fuel Active Autowerke catless x-pipe Drop in filter Recaro seat Pulled passenger and rear seats Volk TE37SL 18's Lightweight battery

    Here is a very well done rendering of the upcoming F90 M5. We are inching closer to the official reveal. What do we know? No dual clutch transmission but instead a ZF sourced automatic. Also standard all wheel drive with a 100% rear wheel drive mode which should make getting heat into the rear tires easy. What else? The S63TU 4.4 liter V8 will be tweaked somewhat which is honestly the best thing about the M5. BMW will offer the most displacement out of its German rivals. When was the last time BMW M could say that? Imagine stroking one to 5.0 liters. The truth is BMW is already getting 600+ horsepower out of the S63TU so it will be interesting to see how much more they push it. They will likely change out the turbochargers for bigger units. This car is going to be a dragster. That is fine. That seems to be what people want. All wheel drive solves the problem of F10 M5 owners whining they can't get traction from a stop. Who cares if the car will be nose heavy now? Who cares if the manual is dead? Who cares about 50/50 weight distribution? Also, will BMW actually be able to make it lighter? Doubtful. The F90 M5 will be the most radical departure yet from the traditional M5 formula yet the most conformist M5 at the same time.

    How is this Liberty Walk widebody fad not dead already? Well, LB Performance claims another victim but this time it is a W204 C63 AMG coupe. The said thing is Mercedes-AMG already makes a widebody C63 called the Black Series which looks and performs much better than this hacked together kit. What is the purpose of this kit? To show the world you like to ruin your cars performance? What wind tunnel testing does it undergo? Exactly none. This is the epitome of German rice. The CFRP body pieces run roughly $17k plus paint and install. Save the money, buy a C63 Black Series, and don't look like a tool.

    This C6 Z06 belongs to BoostAddict Automotive Performance Network member @The Ghost. It seems a few guys that used to be on the BimmerBoost side are moving to C6 Z06's as of late. It is hard to argue with them as look at these results. The car has an aftermarket cam, heads, and an E85 tune. It certainly makes good power at 616 to the tires in naturally aspirated form. Previously, we saw this car take on some of the cars you see in this video but there are a few more runs compiled here plus we get the dyno graph. Not to mention, it's just a good video that is short, sweet, and to the point. Enjoy.

    This video comes to us from Russia (where else?) and auto theft is definitely a big issue in Russia. It is not hard to see why as thieves have it down to a science. With the right tools available and some practice a BMW X6 can be stolen in less than three minutes. The video is in Russian but it's easy to see what the guy does. He drills the lock much as a locksmith would to open it. When he gets in the alarm goes off so he uses some sort of OBD-II sensor tool to turn it off. The car will not start just yet it and it requires some work on the wiring. After this, no problem, it starts. Good thing for insurance, eh?
