    Ok so with the ability to flash BMW's coming to android what Android phone would you buy. I still prefer iOS over android for the refinments but I'm sure I could customize android to what I want so I need the right hardware should I go Nexus6(or whatever the newest one is) Samsung S6/S6edge or the HTC M9. I prefer the smaller form factors but that doesn't seem to exist anymore. But I pretty much need it to be waterproof or have a case that is that I can buy ie lifeproof etc. http://www.boostaddict.com/showthread.php?63449-N54-DAMOS-mobile-project-donation

    Congratulations are in order to Burger Tuning! 136 miles per hour is where the BMW N54 trap speed record stands. This was achieved at the Famoso drag strip in Southern California by the BMS 135i test car running a JB4 and Motiv single turbo kit on a stock internal N54. There are still issues to work out and as the 60 foot indicates the launch needs some work for an impressive ET. Once @Terry@BMS sorts the issues out a good launch on high boost should finally propel the N54 into the 140+ trap speed range (and maybe the 9's?). For now though 136.43 miles per hour is officially the fastest N54 trap in the all the land. More details in the words of @Terry@BMS below. Terry@BMS: I was able to attend a track day at Famoso raceway today. The scheduled start time was 9am but that got pushed back due to a rain delay. It was around noon before we got to do any runs. I decided to race our 135i with the new MOTIV 750 kit today and just go for traps. To that end I ran on the normal 245/45/17 555Rs and just launched the car in 2nd gear with boost capped at 12-15psi. Logs on the dyno looked great fueling wise but as soon as I started doing runs at 26psi at the track, a problem became apparent. The low pressure pump was not keeping up. So I wasn't able to do any high boost runs as I had originally planned. As the day went on fuel pressure got worse and worse. Still, managed a respectable 136.4mph trap speed. I've attached the log of the run so you can see how bad the fuel situation was. It actually did a map4 switched right at the cones so I may have gone a bit faster had the pressure hung on a bit longer. After this run, I decided to pack it up and head home. Only to my surprise, after parking the car, it wouldn't start. An hour of diagnostics later I figured out both my inline 255 & my fuel pump controller shorted out. Luckily I was able to hotwire the primary pump with some spare wire to get the car home under its own power. I've got a Fuel-It Stage3 bucket in the garage that will go in and I'll have to probably order another controller. Anyway next time, whenever that is, I should be able to run enough boost to hit 140mph. I figure it will take 32psi. Then I'll strap on the Hoosier slicks and start working on the launches.

    Cadillac is doing great things lately. They are rolling out high performance cars such as the ATS-V coupe and sedan which are aimed squarely at their German rivals. It is no secret that BMW M has been and is the benchmark in the class from a driver's car perspective. When you are on top others want to take you down and Cadillac apparently is trying to get attention by trolling BMW using their European Twitter feed. Is BMW doing this to Cadillac? No. BMW knows they are the standard so they could care less about Cadillac. Cadillac comes off looking desperate for attention from the German brands. They also are trying to put themselves in the conversation with M by trolling M. They need to remind people that the ATS-V is an M4 competitor by taking pictures with the M4. They are taking the time to go to M, not the other way around. This kind of thing can backfire (anyone remember how it backfired for Audi back in the day with their billboard calling out BMW?) and make a company look petty instead of professional. Cadillac does not have the performance or luxury pedigree of the Germans... yet. They are doing good things and should focus on that. Trying to get the Germans' attention by screaming for it just makes them look like they are not ready to play with the big boys. People should know the ATS-V is the M4 competitor on their own. If you have to yell to get in the conversation, you were never in it to begin with.

    Those F-Series tunes sure spread out quickly didn't they? Everyone is trying to grab their piece of the pie and that is how this business works. Evotech of course is throwing their hat in the ring as well with some pretty impressive tune only numbers of 745 horsepower and 930 lb-ft of torque. Yes, those figures are at the crank. Fortunately they provided a dynograph or this network would not be bothering with this article as it often does not for tuners that throw out big numbers without any actual support. Uncorrected on a Dynojet the figures are 623 wheel horsepower and 777 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. That torque number is... well, it's crazy. It's much higher than anyone else and we certainly can not explain it. Other tuners are in the low 600 lb-ft of wheel torque range on a Dynojet. What is Evotech doing differently? What other supporting mods does this car have? We do not know. We only know that they state they are using 95 octane fuel and their Stage 2 flash. Their crank ratings may be a bit high as using 15% loss numbers (which is flawed anyway as it inflates output) puts the torque figure at 914 lb-ft and the horsepower at 732. Regardless, we are seeing some very big numbers out of the S63TU and it is just getting warmed up.

    Evotech raised some eyebrows with massive torque claims from their Stage 2 S63TU ECU flash tune. Tune only they claimed 777 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. That number is now over 800 lb-ft at the wheels (1090 newton meters) with additional tuning and bolt on modifications. The extent of the modifications to this F13 M6 is unknown. A Gruppe M carbon air intake system is clearly visible and one would assume for 803 lb-ft of torque at the wheels exhaust modifications are necessary. It certainly would be nice to get a list of the full specs. Regardless, the numbers show 673 horsepower at the wheels and 1090 newton meters of torque at the wheels. How Evotech is getting such absurdly high torque figures is anyone's guess.

    Pm me for pix of interested $4400 shipped. This comes with clipped billet 20T compressor wheels (9 blade) and install kit with everything needed (even the VTT shirts are still in box) completely maxed out. Still in box from VTT with packing peanuts and shrink wrapped. Keep your cores and avoid the wait (took mine months to get). Build these on his web site and select no cores. These will still be cheaper. I am going a new direction with custom turbos. If no one wants these I will just send back to Tony wanted to give someone the option tho to have them immediately. If you ordered these today they would be just under $5000 dollars and you would owe your turbos. Keep your turbos and save money and time. Ready to ship.

    Here are the first pictures of the upcoming 991 generation 911 GT3 RS model. Nothing too crazy here as it matches the spyphotos but it is important to note that for the first time a street version of the GT3 has exposed air intakes in the rear fenders similar to the Turbo models. The specification sheet for the 911 GT3 RS was leaked last month so with these images and the specs we basically have the whole picture. 500 horsepower, 4.0 liter motor, PDK, wider bodywork in front and and in back, and a bit less weight. Now we wait for the official reveal but the internet sure knows how to spoil the party for manufacturers.

    Tried to register today and its already sold out! I emailed Ryan about the waiting list, but haven't heard back yet. Did any other N54's get in or on the waiting list? Anyon have experience with the waiting list and the odds that people will cancel and spots will open? I would be coming from washington state so it'd be nice to have alittle notice.

    So today I finally received my Motiv clutch kit(which looks very high quality), but since I don't have a lift to do the clutch job with I need to get a reliable shop somewhere around the Ventura County area. I'm willing to drive pretty much anywhere within reason I just don't want to pay a ridiculous price for the labor/have the job done incorrectly, so does anyone who lives out here have a trustworthy shop they know of? Any help is greatly appreciated!

    The 997.2 facelift brought about a direct injected motor for the 911 Turbo models. This engine ditched the GT1 racing block for an all new design for a new era that puts a premium on emissions. The 997.2 and 991 Turbo motors are both 3.8 liter units and they share design elements. For this reason BBi Autosport is able to offer their 4.0 liter rotating assembling for both the 997.2 Turbo and 991 Turbo models (including the S). For those serious about building their motor and increasing displacement this is not a bad way to go. No word on pricing or the bore x stroke specs. It is not going to be cheap but you already knew that.
