    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.

    MotorTrend reviewed the 2018 Lexus LC500 and there are certainly some areas where Lexus deserves praise. For one, they launched a premium coupe with excellent styling inside and out. Additionally, the car maintains 50/50 weight distribution which is something even BMW struggles with these days. That is about it though. For the $92,000 starting price the performance does not match up to the MSRP especially in today's market. The naturally aspirated 5.0 liter V8 under the hood is nice but it is inferior to the 5.0 liter naturally aspirated S85 V10 BMW offered over a decade ago. How is the Lexus supposed to compete with modern twin turbo V8's which dominate the segment? It can't. Lexus tossed in their same V8 they have been using forever and did not bother to develop a new engine. Why did they spend all that money on developing the LF-A V10? Why not stick a variant of that motor in the LC and truly make for something special? This same old 2UR-GSE 5.0 liter motor was overmatched since the IS-F days back in 2008. Lexus should learn from Audi who finally ditched their 4.2 FSI V8. 50/50 weight distribution is nice but the LC500 is heavy. 4300+ pounds hardly makes for a nimble coupe. The car runs a 13.2 @ 110 in the 1/4 mile. That is not good enough. That is not enough to match a BMW 650i let alone an M6. It is not good enough to keep up with an E550 coupe. It is not enough to keep up with much of anything today. What does MotorTrend think? They think the car feels sluggish. They think the gearing is bad. Gearing is not going to fix the problems with it though. The steering feel is said to be dead. The brake feel is bad. What is there to say? This LC500 is a failure as a performance car. Lexus can market their 'F' brand as much as they want. They aren't fooling anyone. At least not anyone who actually knows what they are talking about. The LC500 is simply a superficial attempt that is more about style than substance. Back to the drawing board...

    I purchased an MFactory LSD kit back in April last year and have never installed. I am going to buy a camper for wife and am hoping to sell these to finance. These are what I have - new and unused in original box: MF-TRS-05E92X-3.08 with Helical LSD - cost me $2199.95 + the refundable core fee at $500. Also I got MF-TRS-11E92-E8X/E92X Solid Diff Bushings at $100. I was going to install on my 2009 135i MT. I would entertain offers as I don't know what these are going for now. I'd accept PayPal and would send with signature confirmation and tracking. Luca

    Not sure what the going rate should be on these at this point. I've had them in the box for a long time. Have never gotten around to installing and wife now wants pop up camper. I have these turbos. I also have new and unused the VTT-N54-INSTL install kit valve. And new VTT-SIL-1 Silicone Intake Kit. I paid $230 for the install kit. Paid $499 for the intake kit. The Stage 2 turbos - these are described on my invoice as Stage 2 Hybrid Turbocharges - Batch 2 and come with upgraded TD04 thrust option and GTX Billet compressor wheel option. Tony took these back and did a pre-emptive leak fix that he said these might need and then sent them back to me. Again I never installed them and they are still in original box and packaging. I paid $3527 for the turbos. So I'd like to entertain offers on these items. I can provide pictures if you wish. If there is a $ amount that can be agreed upon I'd send a PayPal invoice. These would be sent with signature confirmation and tracking. I will also be selling a LSD kit made by Factory - also new and unused - in a separate listing. Luca

    Here we go again! The US government received a huge settlement from Volkswagen over their diesel scandal and rightfully so. The lawyers are probably the happiest out of anyone involved so why not rinse and repeat? The U.S. is now suing Fiat Chrysler over emissions cheating. The government states that some FCA diesel SUV's and trucks use software to cheat emission tests. This is very similar to the allegations against Volkswagen. FCA's defense is that their software detects changes in temperature and other conditions. Essentially, software tuning that adjusts based on certain parameters as most modern cars do. The question is if the software was set to change parameters if it knew emissions testing was taking place. What will happen? Who knows. FCA stock is already trending downward. It sure feels like FCA won't be the last manufacturer who is forced to defend their diesel tuning practices in court. Source

    I believe it. People have barely scratched the surface of turbo upgrades on the platform too. My next car is going to be a McLaren.

    At least those kits went on out of production Japanese cars though. They are sticking this crap on exotics. It boggles the mind.
