    The Pure Turbos Stage 2 N54 upgrade sure looks like the real deal. The turbo upgrade is not 'officially' out yet but expect it next month. For now what we have seen is numbers in the 6XX wheel range and here is a preview of the real world capability. BimmerBoost member @pr3ci5n335i in the video below runs his E90 automatic 335i against a 2014 Nissan GTR on E85 with full bolt ons. The 335i is at roughly 25 psi of boost and also has full bolt ons in addition to the Pure Turbos Stage 2 N54 turbo upgrade. He also has the TFT inlets and his fuel in the video is an E50 blend with meth injection. The 335i takes the hit here but steadily pulls the GTR until it shuts down. Definitely an impressive result considering what bolt on GTR's on E85 are capable of. 2010 E90 M 335i: Alpina AT, FBO (VRSF 5" Stepped FMIC, Catless with BMW PE, TFT upper and lower chargepipes, HKS BOV, BMS 2 gallon Meth kit, Stage 1 Walbro 255 inline LPFP, BMS low temperature thermostat bypass), JB4 map 3 80add, BMS E85 Flash using MHD, Pure S2 turbos, APEX Arc-8, no rear seats

    The newer AMG's are making a lot of torque by virtue of their turbo powerplants especially when upgraded. Weistec themselves is producing several turbo upgrades for the new AMG motors which means huge power and torque figures. Those figures are big enough to easily exceed the capacity of the stock 722.9 transmission. The solution is the Bulletproof 722.9 upgrade from Weistec. Speaking to Weistec we learned this transmission upgrade has held whatever they have thrown it. That means it will hold whatever you throw at it and then some. Here are the details on the package: Complete Package Increased Torque Capacity Weistec Performance Clutch Material Increased Number of Discs per Clutch Pack Redesigned Clutch Piston Geometry Increased Frictional Surface Area Increased Clutch Material New OEM Gaskets and Seals New OEM Fasteners and Hardware It is important to note this is a complete hardware package as stated in the very first bullet point. Why is this important? Because Weistec can ship the complete hardware to anyone and they can do the install themselves. Owners no longer need to try to figure out how to get their transmission to Southern California. No doubt AMG enthusiasts across the globe will appreciate this. More surface area and more discs means more torque capability. This is the 722.9 taken to the maximum. Fitting more discs to somehow try to get more surface area beyond this will not be possible. The clutch material itself underwent testing for the past two years. BenzBoost members such as @MR747 have gone mid 10's with this upgrade at over 130 miles per hour in the 1/4 mile. To be noted, this amounted to an improvement of 4/10's and 6 miles per hour on what he did before the transmission upgrade was installed. Weistec themselves has gone over 170 in the 1/2 mile with this upgrade in their M157 turbo upgraded W212 E63 AMG S. The torque capability is clearly there but in addition the shifts are firmed up. The new clutch material offers greater resistance to heat (less slippage when warm say after a burnout) and obviously generates greater friction than the factory material. The clutch material offering better heat resistance is one part of keeping the transmission cooler along with the new transmission pan. The new pan allows for a greater volume of fluid. Here are the specs: Fluid Capacity Increased by 2.5 Quarts Integrated Cooling Fins Internal Anti-slosh Baffling O-Ring Seal Two -8 ports for Additional Transmission Cooler Circuit (Additional Cooler not included) Drain and Fill Plugs Two Transmission Pan Magnets Mounting Hardware Included You will want to combine the Weistec clutch hardware with the upgraded pan for the ultimate 722.9 upgrade. Should one desire to go beyond this the upgraded Weistec 722.9 pan features two -8 ports for an additional transmission fluid cooler. It seems they thought of everything. Speaking with Weistec they assured BenzBoost this truly is a Bulletproof upgrade and not just in the name alone. They have tested it thoroughly, engineered it to take maximum abuse, and have yet to have the upgrade fail. It is nice to see solutions of this caliber available in the AMG world. Oh, and take note, this applies to all the new 722.9 cars as well including the W205 generation along with the past cars including the 4Matic variants. Well done yet again Weistec. 722.9 Bulletproof Package retails for $3649.99: 722.9 Transmission Pan retails for $599.99:

    So I entered a chili cook off contest set for October. I intend to make the world's greatest chili. To be noted, I've never made chili. Anyway, so far what I plan to do is get high quality beef and have it ground down. This is a good idea I assume? I was going to use kidney beans, add some tapatio for spice, plus diced onions. Maybe a pinch of garlic? I'll top with cheddar cheese, avocado, and sour cream. Should roughly look something like this: Anyway, any tips?

    Some heavyweights slugging it out here on the highway. This being a street race there is no doubt some sandbagging going on. The UGR 1R twin turbo built Gallardo is said to be at 1500 horsepower but UGR and its owners are known to downplay horsepower figures quite a bit. The Nissan GTR is a built 3.8 liter from T1 Race Development. The owner says power is around 1200 horses. The C6 Vette features a built 370 cubic inch motor and it is running a Precision PT88 turbocharger. Power output is stated to be roughly 1000 horses but that turbo can support over 1200 horses depending on the application of course. The first run has the trio going three-wide but the Vette loses traction and gets out of it. The GTR and Gallardo are close to one another but the GTR edges the Gallardo out based on the chase view from the Vette. The interior view of this run from the GTR makes it tough to get a good shot of the Gallardo but it appears to pull easily. After the run the Gallardo owner claims to have run a 1250 horsepower boost map. After a little pow wow the Gallardo owner presumably turns up the boost and the three cars go at it again. The Vette is clearly overmatched even with traction. The GTR jumps and the Gallardo tries to run it down but does not catch up although it does pull away from the C6. The GTR certainly appears to be the fastest car of the three. The final run features the Corvette against a bolt on CBR1000. The CBR puts several car lengths on the Vette initially but past 150 the Corvette's aerodynamics help it close the distance. It is a bit too little and too late though as the Corvette has to go high into the triple digits to overtake and by that time the race is over. Definitely some very fast cars

    That's more like it! As more and more of the new Mercedes-AMG C63's get out on the road and owners take them to the strip the 1/4 times will continue to improve. Last month an owner posted a 12.5 @ 119 slip and in that post BenzBoost speculated the C63 is capable of going deep into the 11's stock. Not exactly rocket science considering that anyone familiar with 60 foot times and their impact on a 1/4 mile elapsed time can see it for themselves. The C63 that went mid 12's had a 2.456 short time. This C63 that went 11.6 launched with a much better 1.831 on the factory street tires. Just drag racing 101 here. By the time Winter rolls around we should see mid 11's at 121-122 trap speeds from stock C63's as previously stated if not better depending on the DA (Density Altitude).

    (proper photos will be uploaded this weekend, I only have one crappy cellphone picture of my car at the moment) I will try to be as complete as possible with this AD. Please email me if you are truly interested, I will read/respond much faster there. I still owe money to BMW, the title will be mailed from BMW after purchase and payoff. Jaredn at 2011 BMW 335is Space grey exterior, coral red interior N54 engine 7 speed DCT transmission 61,000 miles See attached PDF for VIN and factory options $37,000 I bought this on 4/2014 with 48,000 miles. I put about 600-800 miles on it per month driving to work, 15 miles round trip. CPO warranty until 1/2017, and BMW service contract until 1/2017. These are both transferable with the car for a small fee to BMW and a notarized form. The car was a single owner lease return from Monrovia BMW. I have only serviced the car at South Bay BMW. When I purchased the car, the exhaust had a slight rattle, so I had it replaced under factory warranty. While it was there I had the steering wheel trim replaced since it was peeling near the radio buttons. The LPFP was replaced early this year under CPO warranty. The car is in excellent condition. Interior is a 9/10, exterior is a 9/10. I daily drive the car, but there is covered/garaged parking both at home and at work. Mechanical problems: 1) None Cosmetic problems: 1) Front bumper cover, two minor scratches and a few rock chips from daily driving 2) Rear bumper cover, small scratch on lower passenger side 3) Drivers rear quarter window, small scratch 4) Interior center console, scratch near coin tray The following modifications are installed on the car, and any factory part that was removed will also be included in the sale. (all modifications are completely reversible, no permanent modifications have been done) All parts are roughly 8-10 months old with approximately 5000 miles on them unless specified otherwise. The only OEM parts that I am missing are the factory 313m wheels, which were sold, and the OEM open differential, which was returned to VAC as a core. Maintenance: • On 8/22/2015 I replaced all 6 spark plugs with NGK 95770 (same as 5992) gapped to .22”, 6 new Delphi coil packs, and two new Bosch primary oxygen sensors. This was done before flashing my new Wedge tune with the MHD app. Not installed: • BMS oil catch can • Vorshlag camber/caster pates with Ohlins install hardware • Swift springs (65mm 9" 672 lb/in) to replace Ohlins rear springs • HRE 448R 19x8.5+35, 19x10+30 – Gloss titanium grey lips, satin titanium grey faces, satin black bolts, satin black inner barrels. Freshly refinished and never mounted. These are not included in the price, but can be installed in place of the BBS CH-R. Performance: • MHD tune by Wedge • Wagner Tuning Evo I Performance Intercooler • AFE Stage 2 Intake - Pro Dry S • ER Chargepipe – OEM DV style • Turbosmart Kompact Plumb back diverter valves • UR Catted downpipes (bought used, ~10k miles) Suspension, chassis, drivetrain: • Ohlins Road and Track coilovers (10k miles) • OEM M3 front and rear control arms • OEM M3 front and rear anti-roll bars • OEM M3 differential bushings • MRF engineering solid aluminum rear subframe bushings • Megan racing rear toe arms • VAC built Quaife ATB differential with factory DCT final drive • West End alignment and corner balance • BBS CH-R titanium grey 19x8.5 +32, 19x9.5+35 (less than 4 months old, ~2,000 miles) • Michelin Pilot Super Sport 235/35/19, 265/30/19 (10k miles, plenty of tread left) Interior: • Gladen one 201 speaker system • Gladen Mosconi D2 100.4 amp/dsp • Audio tuning by JTAudio • Kuda dash mount Exterior: • BMW OEM car cover for e92 • Lamin-X “tint” headlight film • Paint matched front reflectors • Tinted side turn indicators • 35% 3M ceramic tint • Ebay painted (black) high kick performance spoiler

    08 335i with a K&N intake on stock map vs 07 Z4M with S54, exhaust, tune, and intake. So, a friend of mine and I took a trip to Mexico recently. Found a nice road with a slight uphill grade (a road that leads to nowhere for those who might bash for running on main roads). Did a 20 dig and launched in first, he shifted a little earlier than I did into 2nd and 3rd, but we were literally neck and neck the entire time until we hit 100mph. I had about 100lbs of extra weight in the car. He weighs about 140, I'm at 200. Both running Apex Arc-8 wheels on street tires. Now I can't wait to make my second trip now that my tune is finally settled. Not much of a kill story, but the fact that we were probably literally thousandths of a second difference was pretty cool. No real numbers were set.
