    This conversion was actually completed a couple years ago yet it is surprising we are only getting run videos of it now. Whifbitz in the UK did this DCT transmission swap into a MKIV Toyota Supra and is controlling it with a Syvecs S6Plus ECU. Why a DCT swap? Well, they explain their reasoning here: The benefits are obvious but Whifbitz apparently is keeping all the information to themselves and if you want the swap you have to go through them. Their Supra is making about 700 horsepower and the gearbox is stock for now. They plan to add Dodson upgrades shortly. Adding a dual clutch to some older cars is a great way to give them a modern performance and comfort boost. Hopefully we see more of these DCT transmission swaps into various cars.

    At this point everyone is aware the Mercedes-AMG M177/M178 V8 engines are tuning powerhouses. The AMG GT S is not even the highest horsepower version of the M178 Mercedes-AMG offers and there is plenty more in it than what the factory gives it. The baseline figures are very healthy with 484 rear wheel horsepower and 480 lb-t of torque at the wheels. The horsepower is higher than a W205 C63 AMG S on the same dyno and the torque is is slightly less. This is similar what other tuners have shown with the M178 vs. the M177. Eurocharged picks up a lot of torque from roughly 3000 rpm to 5500 rpm. We're talking 612 lb-ft at peak compared to 480 lb-ft stock. Just over a 130 lb-ft gain. The gains taper off toward redline but peak horsepower increase by 44 at the wheels. A very nice tune only increase.

    The BMW F82 M4 CS is essentially a model that sits between the M4 Competition Package and the hardcore M4 GTS. The limited edition model gets a bump to 460 horsepower from its S55 inline-6 motor along with some lightweight pieces. The 9A2B6 engine in the 911 GTS is rated at 450 horsepower. This is essentially the same 3.0 liter flat-6 as the Carrera and Carrera S but with larger turbochargers and different software. Which of these two is really making more power? Well, we would need to dyno both of them to know for sure. The best we can provide is a 991.2 Carrera and standard F82 M4 overlay. What we do know for sure is the 991.2 GTS is roughly 200 pounds lighter and it has the majority of that weight over the rear tires. Despite these two cars both being rear wheel drive the GTS simply puts its power down far more easily. This race is not even a contest. Showing them going from a roll or trap speeds is necessary here and MotorSport Magazine does not provide either because they're either lazy or incompetent. If you have an F80 M3 or F82 M4 and think you will have an easy time with a 991.2 at a light, think again.

    No shit, in your state you don't have to tell the person you have HIV first anymore. Fucking insane. I honestly don't understand liberals. People are just idiots. Liberals in general think that government does best. I don't trust the stranger I walk past, I certainly don't trust the Government. MKUltra, The CIA sell crack to the blacks, etc. etc. The list goes on of reasons not to trust any government.

    Maybe they should just stop white males from enrolling altogether? These people have lost their minds.

    If you pay attention to the world of high performance cars you know there are spectacularly fast twin turbo Lamborghini Huracans and Nissan GT-R's. Tuners pushing the limits in competition is great for enthusiasts and potential customers alike. Underground Racing is known for their absurdly quick Stage X twin turbo Huracans. They do not play second fiddle to anyone. Just look at how hard they went at Heffner until they basically forced him to concede to UGR being the top dog on the Huracan platform. UGR's push to hold all the records and beat all challengers leads to them being a bit too sensitive and perhaps going overboard while at the same time constantly pushing the platform. Remember when they tried to scrub the internet from all details of one of their cars going up in flames? They take things so far as to not even want to admit sometimes things can go wrong. That mentality is in play here with Ross Fowler's UGR Stage X Huracan going up against Tony Palo and his T1 Racing Development GT-R. The GT-R is making well over 2500 horsepower. They had this car over 2200 to the wheels back in 2015. They are doing well over 2300 now and this is just what they choose to show: Ok, so both cars are freaking fast and both tuners are at the top of their game. So what happened? Well, the cars ran and made it to the finals of the King of the Streets at the Texas Invitational. When they ran, T1 got up to speed and the video evidence speaks for itself. UGR slingshotted past which is essentially cheating: It's a bullshit move. UGR got a running start while T1 was trying to match and sitting at speed before the start. Everyone seems to agree on this and even the event organizers agreed that a re-run was necessary. That was fine until UGR took their trophy and went home rather than race again: UGR gets the win but a lot of people lost a lot of respect for this type of behavior. We all have egos but at the end of the day this is not Formula 1. Just run the cars in the spirit of the competition. There is no shame in losing in this environment and certainly not in the finals. T1's feelings on the subject: This is UGR's response: Trying to line up cars fairly like this from a roll is not easy. It takes some work from both parties. If the GT-R needs to be at a higher speed initially to build boost the Huracan should work with it to get an even start and fair race rather than manipulate circumstances into its favor. This is systemic of a larger problem at events like this where people will inflate their start speed or start early to get a jump. The proper solution is to remove the variables causing the issue and take it out of the driver's hands as an even start is simply impossible. Especially when someone else will do whatever is necessary to win even if that means cheating. The fact remains UGR did not do a re-run and went home because they knew they had the slower car according to trap speeds from the event. There is no excuse in the world that will change that fact. * BoostAddict.com reached out for comment from Underground Racing and Tony Palo with no response from either. It seems this is a sore subject.
