    Vendors go about their online business in different ways. Some choose to stay out of it and just let their products do the talking. Others are very loud and constantly involved in social media and forum flame wars touting their product as the best. Often times those who yell the loudest are the most desperate for attention. Take Dime Racing as an example. Yes, the same Dime Racing that Weistec took to court. That matter has since been settled with undisclosed terms but Dime Racing continues to engage in some very shady behavior online. Last year Dime was caught trying to take credit for what was actually Weistec's performance on social media. Before that they used a Weistec dynograph claiming it was their own. Now they are going after Pure Turbos. Why? Because Pure Turbos entered the M177/M178 turbo upgrade market and is showing great results for less money. AMG modding is where Dime operates and a new competitor offering a better product for less money must be destroyed online rather than beaten through honest competition. The trolls were let loose: Pathetic, right? First they claim the Dynojet numbers are manipulated and a fabrication. Clearly someone needs to read the recent BoostAddict article on Dynojets vs. Mustang dynamometers. Secondly, they say Pure Turbos should 'prove it' and race them. Yes, seriously, they ask Pure Turbos to race a customer car without permission for some stupid internet grudge match. Pure Turbos being a responsible and professional company laughs this off and then the troll claims they backed out. Unbelievable. This goes on further where the Dime trolls imply this turbo upgrade will blow your motor. You get an idea of the pattern. The whole reason for this weak trolling attempt is to try to discredit a new option that is showing very well for less money. Pure Turbos is to be commended and let's just say we are all glad they do not race internet trolls in customer cars but instead let the performance numbers do the talking. This type of thing happens more often than you think. In the past, a tuner who took a similar approach was MHP and the owner actually asked BenzBoost to create troll accounts so the owner could go on a certain forum and try to undermine the competition. BenzBoost declined and MHP is now history. This same sort of thing is going on today with Dime having troll accounts on certain forums that specifically attack competitors. We know of a certain tuner that is sick of it and you can probably add @Pure Turbos to that list. Maybe Dime Racing has an M177 turbo upgrade that works now (Eurocharged dumped them due to issues). Maybe their tuner isn't committing felonies any longer. Maybe Rod Shegem (http://rod-shegem.com) is not stealing money. What is clear is that a black cloud and negativity seems to follow Dime Racing wherever they go.

    The S63TU 4.4 liter M V8 continues to impress. If you want to make big power relatively easily with a modern turbo BMW motor, it's the way to go. The F10 M5 is in the 9's thanks to it and we are regularly seeing 800+ wheel horsepower monsters. This is yet another example. The car has upgraded clutch packs, Pure Stage 2 S63TU turbochargers, and a custom dyno tune. That's it. The engine is still stock but reaching that edge where one might want to upgrade the rods for peace of mind.

    This is the fastest BMW F82 M4 and S55 powered BMW to BimmerBoost's knowledge. Additionally, the first to top 140 miles of trap speed. This is some serious speed out of the platform and more than enough power to run 9's. Yes, the 60 foot is poor but TPG Tuning said the track was in bad shape and they could not get traction. The 2.377 short time definitely will inflate the trap a bit so with traction BimmerBoost would expect that trap to fall slightly: However, the era of 140+ mile per hour F80 M3's and F82 M4's is officially here and it bodes well for the future. They are definitely going to hit the track again and go for that 9 second pass. For now, this is the fastest the S55 has gone and congratulations to TPG Tuning for pushing the boundaries.

    I'm exploring wheel options and I feel HRE is played out. Started looking at BC Forged and they have some very cool wheels and finishes. Anyone know more about them or tried out their wheels? Pricing is reasonable IMO.

    A car making its advertised horsepower is a good thing but we have become a bit spoiled in the turbo era. AudiBoost hoped the B9 S4 would be significantly underrated as there is a lot of potential in its 3.0 TFSI twin scroll single turbo design. MRC Tuning got the new S4 on their Cartec dynamometer and this is the result: Essentially right on the money with its 354 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque ratings. We will need to see how this translates to a Dynojet but the new S4 will need some aftermarket love to really show some serious power. Audi may be protecting the RS4 and RS5 models from cannibalization by keeping the new 3.0 TFSI motor at relatively mild factory output. This dyno also likely explains the relatively poor performance of the B9 S5 in a drag race against the Mercedes C43 and Camaro SS.

    A very nice result here from AMR Performance and their Mercedes M276 DELA30 turbo V6 ECU flash tune. They revised their ECU tune for the C450 (now called the C43 AMG) last year and got another 53 wheel horsepower out of it. The result with just the ECU is low 12's in the 1/4 mile. 12.244 @ 112.93 miles per hour to be exact. That is on a 1.904 60 foot, pump gas, and street tires by the way. With drag rubber this is an easy 11 second car as well as with bolt on modifications. The C450 and 43 AMG models are a nice tuning value and hopefully we see more from the M276 DELA30 turbo V6.

    The Bugatti Chiron takes the Veyron recipe and essentially just turns it up a notch. The Chiron has 1479 horsepower 1180 lb-ft of torque from a similar 8.0 liter W16 motor. Power is sent to all four wheels through a dual clutch transmission just like the Veyron. It is essentially a straight line missile. It's big, heavy, and fast and all about acceleration and top speed. It definitely moves quite well and with a better launch and traction could hit 200 miles per hour in under 16 seconds:

    We can only hope. It feels like we will never get to the bottom of this Russia BS or the surveillance.

    Democrats will lose their minds. Months of 'Russia Russia Russia' with nothing to be found yet the Trump surveilance is all coming together: http://vesselnews.io/paul-ryan-nunes-source-trump-surveillance-whistleblower-type/ This is going to be nasty.
