    The goal here is 800+ horsepower as stated by Turbo Lab of America. What are they doing? Well, they are massaging the factory S55 turbo housings considerably. They are stuffing TDOHL 20G wheels into the OEM housing which requires a bit of machining as the video below covers. Does it produce 800 horsepower? That is a good question. They are working on it and this upgrade if it comes to fruition will be a very nice value in the S55 turbo upgrade market. It is somewhat difficult to get information on the Turbo Lab of America S55 upgrades as they do not have a very good web presence. They do have Youtube videos but their website is lacking and they primarily sell on Ebay. There certainly is promise here and it is worth watching for F80 M3 and F82 M4 owners.

    The reason Teslas are so quick in the 1/4 mile is because they have a mountain of torque available instantly. That is the beauty of an electric motor. The P100D in particular as it is the most powerful Tesla offering rated at 760 horsepower and 791 lb-ft of torque. The horsepower is a bit overstated but the peak torque figure is considerably underrated: 588 horsepower and 920 lb-ft of torque on a Mustang dyno. That is likely over 1000 lb-ft of torque at the wheels on a Dynojet. Compare the P100D numbers to a P85D: http://www.boostaddict.com/content.php?5627-Tesla-Model-S-P85D-shows-864-lb-ft-of-torque-at-wheels-on-a-Mustang-dyno The torque and especially the horsepower figures are much stronger but as you can see everything comes down low and quickly tapers off. If 0-60 and stoplights are your thing, nothing is going to beat the P100D in Ludicrous mode.

    It's basically how many restaurants make steaks. You place the meat in a vacuum bag and then use water immersion and a special tool (in my case an Anova) to hold the perfect temp for the doneness you want. Because it holds water temp exact, you can never overcook and the steak comes out juicy and super tender. It won't have any searing or grill marks, so most folks will quickly sear it in a heavy pan, grill or with a torch. Anova is a brand - they were a kickstarter - just got bought by ElectroLux for $250M. Here is some more detail: https://anovaculinary.com/what-is-sous-vide/ -Rich

    This seems like a great idea - has anyone accomplished this yet? Do we have any P/Ns for what exactly is required to make this work?

    Sort of related to smoking (low and slow cooking) - has anyone cooked sous-vide before? We bought an Anova last week and I made the best steaks I've ever done before with it. Absolutely incredible. Bought Choice NY Strips at Costco (not filets, not prime grade), cooked them for an hour using the Anova to med rare and then seared on the grill. They turned out like butter. We had (picky) friends over and they were blown away too. Tried tuna steaks the next night and I over cooked them - going to retry at some point. But the strips were incredible. Going to try pork chops, a prime rib and maybe even a brisket sous-vide/smoker combo soon. -Rich
