    W204 C65 AMG Black Series 4Matic? Yes, you read that correctly. BenzBoost teased this car a year ago while final development and tuning was wrapped up. Getting a build like this done and dialed in takes a bit of time and the owner wanted to have some fun with a sleeper before the word got out. Whoops. It is hard to not write about something extraordinary like this. Just swapping in an M279 V12 into the W204 chassis alone is incredible (look at that fab work!) but they also added 4Matic all wheel drive on top. This is truly a one of a kind build and as the saying goes if you have to ask how much it costs you can not afford it. Weistec did not leave the M279 stock by any means. The V12 receives a sleeved block, forged internals, CNC ported heads, a new dual throttle body intake manifold, and custom turbochargers. It makes over 1000 horsepower at the wheels but best of luck to anyone trying to get a dynograph. Maybe the owner will release a graph at some point. For now, just enjoy one of, if not the outright baddest, C-Class AMG's on Earth.

    The era of quadruple digit F10 M5 and F13 M6 horsepower is officially here! Congratulations to BPC (Bimmer Performance Center) on being the first to crack the 1000 wheel horsepower mark on the S63TU 4.4 liter twin turbo V8 platform. Videos will be coming soon and will be posted below but here is what you need to know: 2013 M5 DCT car Upgraded DCT clutches All done via Flash only, no Piggyback (JB4). 110 Octane, stock fuel system. Methanol injection (M1) NO Nitrous This obviously is their built motor package which is capable of holding roughly 1500 horsepower. 1026 rear wheel horsepower is incredible but they are not done. This is just the beginning.

    The BMW N54 is not what you would call a high revving BMW engine or even a high revving BMW I6. There are numerous reasons for that such as it not being an M engine, being turbocharged, having direct fuel injection, an undersquare design, etc. More revs are very beneficial for those chasing more power especially when switching to a large turbo. Obviously with a larger turbo there will be a spool sacrifice but there will also be much more air moved up top. To really see the full capability a higher redline to take advantage of the torque curve that is now shifted to the right is needed. This E92 335i belongs to BimmerBoost member @jt0407 and here are a few of the specs: Supertech valvetrain Schrick cams ported head 5 angle valve job Stock block Extending the redline over a 1000 rpm brings with it fueling issues especially on a direct injection system. He has a Fuel-It! Stage 3 setup with TBI: He claims he hit 8200 rpm there. Just for perspective still short of the stock 8400 rpm the S65 V8 revs to but a good step forward for big turbo N54's. As for the power he is making he says he will get on the dyno soon. It sure will be interesting to take a look at his power curve.

    Congratulations are in order here although the car is still being tuned. Essentially, this is a work in progress but it certainly has progressed from where it was. The car was making 889 rear wheel horsepower but recently cracked the 9XX barrier with a 919 wheel horsepower pull. Now, we would like full size graphs and more details but this is the first publicly posted 9XX car BimmerBoost knows of and the most powerful N54 to date until someone proves otherwise. The Precision 6870 is not maxed out either and they can push this a bit further with some refinements. Either way, clearly the Doc Race single turbo top mount N54 manifold is an extremely nice piece with extreme capability. The Motiv built motor setup is also handling the torque thrown at it. Keep it up guys! Excellent work.

    Another day, another N54 single turbo option. BimmerBoost is not familiar with You Wish Performance but they tend to produce products for other makes. They entered the BMW market with their top mount N54 twin scroll single turbo kit. It starts at $4599: -Twin scroll top mount manifold -6265 or 6465 Garrett Gtw billet wheel turbo -Turbosmart 40mm wastegates -Turbo down pipe -Wastegate dump tubes -Turbo blanket -Turbo Intake filter -Mac solenoid -Rear oil/coolant block offs -Turbo feed/drain -Charge pipe to intercooler -Aluminum coolant tube -Coolant tank relocation hose/bracket -Hardware/Turbo manifold Gaskets Their kit with a Garrett 6265 was tuned by EMP Tuning and made 622 horsepower to the wheels without port injection or meth at 23 psi: Another option in the hotly contested single turbo market.

    Are you sick of hearing about how fast Teslas supposedly are? How the P100D is unbeatable and so incredibly quick? Well, you can thank misleading videos like what MotorTrend recently put out for convincing people that a P100D is the king of acceleration. It isn't. Not by a long shot. Honestly, it isn't even close. A McLaren 720S is what you call a fast car. For one, it isn't lugging a ton of batteries around so it comes in at almost 2000 pounds less than a P100D. Furthermore, the internal combustion engine can stretch its legs much further than the P100D can dream of. That is not to say the P100D is not quick. From a stop, it will do mid 10's. Definitely hard to top off the line for many stock cars. A trap of around 124 miles per hour is not fast though. From a stop the McLaren is already pulling the Tesla by third gear. Yes, the P100D gets a lead but it is easily overcome. The McLaren blows it away. From a roll? It isn't even a race. STFU about Teslas already. They're not fast.

    This is not your typical hybrid S63TU turbo upgrade. What is tentatively being referred to as the Pure Turbos Stage X turbocharger upgrade for the F10 M5 and F13 M6 is a complete turbo upgrade with new housings. BimmerBoost member @allmotor_2000 who is gunning for 8's in the 1/4 mile is getting these turbos on his F10 M5. This includes a custom manifold, custom downpipes, custom wastegates, and a custom JB4 BCM setup per-bank for boost control. The turbos themselves are ball bearing Garrett GTX3XXX mirrored units. That means one is reverse rotation. Then of course there are all the custom lines for water and oil. What will all of this cost? What kind of power can we expect? We'll know once it is done. Size comparison to stock:

    The new second generation NSX is a radical departure from the original. Honda simply got it wrong. What made the NSX a success is that it was a reliable exotic which was fun to drive. It was light, revved high, sounded great, rear wheel drive, and an excellent driver's car. In comparison, the new NSX feels like an appliance. Quite simply, it lacks soul. They packed in technology but they did not make the car more fun to drive. It is a lot more expensive. It is a lot heavier. It does not have a manual option. Electric assisted all wheel drive gives it a completely different feel. Are you driving it or are computers? Bridgewater Acura is knocking $44,800 off the sticker of this NSX: Checking their website it looks like it is already gone. At $200k optioned the NSX really isn't worth the money considering how it performs roughly the same as the now very long in the tooth Nissan GT-R. Knock $45k off though and people come knocking. It's safe to say at this point that Honda/Acura failed with the car and they had plenty of time with delay after delay to get it right. Oh, and here is a 'used' one with 2 miles on it they will let go for $129k from the $168k MSRP: The car is a flop.

    This is just the beginning. Weistec is expanding its reach into other markets which is a great thing for BMW enthusiasts (as well as those of another make which will be announced at a later date). BimmerBoost knew about this for a while but Weistec was not ready to reveal their entry into the BMW aftermarket until significant development took place. Their first upgrade will be for the F10 M5 and F13 M6 models. They will offer a full S63TU turbo upgrade and you can logically deduce they will be working on the F90 M5 afterwards. You can see their (very expensive!) 3d imaging scanner at work as they map out the engine bay and parts. We're talking about a piece of equipment that can range up to $85k. This is what top engineering firms use. Get ready for some exciting BMW developments from Weistec.

    The 2.9 liter Whipple twin screw supercharger is very popular in the Domestic world and also in the Mercedes-AMG M156 market. Weistec for example utilizes Whipple twin screw blowers in their Stage III+ M156 applications which break into the 9's on the stock internals. It will be interesting to see if the third generation supercharger will be utilized although the new casing may pose some fitment issues. Regardless, check out these results on a Mustang GT with no changes other than moving to the new blower: That is an impressive pickup in power and torque from 3000 rpm on. Not only is the Gen 3 making more power it is also running up to 80 degrees cooler. It is much more efficient. The Gen 3 features new rotors with precision, robotically sprayed, conformal PTFE coating that adapts to the application and clearances needed. The rotors also feature a profile change, along with tighter tolerances that minimize power consumption and leakage. The updated rotor housing features revised port timing and bearing shape for increased rotor filling, along with a new, angled rib pattern for a more aggressive look.

    The dyno is from the third 2000+ all wheel horsepower Nissan GT-R T1 Race Development built. It seems almost absurd to say that builds in excess of 2000 horsepower in the GT-R world are becoming commonplace from high end tuners. How much does something like this cost to do, anyway? Everything needs to be upgraded. It is amazing the Dodson transmission is holding this kind of power and torque: As for the turbos that is a pair of Precision 7675's doing the work. Also they are revving the engine out past 9k rpm. They are also utilizing a billet engine block. Incredible.

    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. * reached out for comment from Underground Racing and Tony Palo with no response from either. It seems this is a sore subject.

    This is the same E89 Z4 we saw do some impressive runs last month. It had a small boost leak then which has since been rectified. It takes on some stout competition and really shows how potent a tuned N54 on the stock turbos can be when paired to a DCT transmission. The first run is against a 900+ horsepower GT-R. It goes as you would expect. Next up is an E92 M3. Whatever the mods on the M3 it needs more mods. A Pure Turbos upgraded E92 335i tries its luck next. He should not have given the Z4 the hit. An E30 with unknown mods is beaten next. A bolt on C6 is just obliterated next. How about a tuned Audi RS3? It does ok in the lower gears but is simply overmatched up top and pulled. A W204 C63 AMG sedan with an ECU tune is next. It was beaten so easily it is really surprising. Last but not least is a tuned R230 SL600 V12 twin turbo. Finally a decent race but the Z4 manages to open up a small lead. A tuned SL600 is about 126 mile per hour car depending on the supporting mods and fuel. This Z4 sure is dialed in.

    The new Audi RS3 sedan is already over 500 horsepower. It did not take much time at all now did it? The 2.5 TFSI single turbo inline-5 simply continues to impress and its new dual fuel injection system should make it even more tuner friendly. Let's take a look at the dyno: That is 450 awhp from an Iroz intercooler, downpipe, and Custom-Code software on 93 octane pump gas. The baseline figure looks to be roughly 360 awhp. With an intercooler and downpipe that goes to about 400 awhp. Essentially, gains of almost 100 awhp with basic bolt ons on pump gas. Keep in mind in warm Vegas weather Iroz got a baseline of 12.0 @ 113 for the car. This should be a low 11-second car at around 120 miles per hour in the 1/4 mile with bolt ons. Tuned RS3's are going to be a handful.

    Congratulations are in order to PorscheBoost Porsche Performance Forums member @NJ-M4 on his setting a new quickest Porsche 991 Turbo 1/4 mile time. His vehicle is a 991.1 Turbo S so this is an overall quickest 991 US pass. As a reminder, @Markblackwell ran 9.71 @ 143.80 in his 991.1 Turbo S. So while this is the quickest US pass it is not the fastest: The mod list: ESMotor 71mm VTG Turbos ESMotor intercoolers ESMotor exhaust ESMotor headers IPD Plenum IPD Y pipe Meth kit Cobb tuned by Emre The recorded 60-130 time for reference on the run was 5.7 seconds: Curb weight is 3595 pounds: Very well done and a very impressive 991.1 Turbo.
