    So, this car is really beast. If your friend has a MOTIV kit, and he offers to give you a ride, just say no. Because, then you will put yourself on a ramen diet for the next 3 years to be able to get your own. And, by the time it's installed, you would had died of cardiac arrest because you've been eating ramen for the past 3 years. :D There was some absurd EVOMS Porsche that trapped 227, and unfortunately I left right as one of the local Supercharged M3's showed up, but hopefully pobudz got that on his GoPro. I'm sure he'll share the rest of the details, but I got word that he did trap 160 so far. This run was 153 or 154, due mainly in part to my fat ass weighing the car down most likely.

    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.

    For whatever reason very fast passes along with record breaking passes keep coming from the Yas Marina drag strip in Abu Dhabi this year. Here is a very impressive run by a built motor M156 W204 C63 AMG with the full gamut of Weistec Engineering Upgrades. The car has a 3.0 liter twin screw blower courtesy of the Weistec Engineering Stage III supercharger package. The car also features the 'bulletproof' Weistec transmission upgrade. Last but not least do not forget the M156 6.2 liter AMG engine is built using Weistec components. There are questions regarding the fuel used as well as the wheel/tire setup but 9 second performance from built motor Weistec supercharged M156 motors is nothing new. It's the benchmark. P.S. Can we get a slip instead of grainy video please?

    Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson has been suspended by the BBC "following a fracas" with a producer.The corporation said the 54-year-old presenter had been suspended "pending an investigation". "No one else has been suspended. Top Gear will not be broadcast this Sunday," it said. Clarkson was given what he called his "final warning" last May after claims he used a racist word while filming the popular BBC motoring show. At the time, he said the BBC had told him he would be sacked if he made "one more offensive remark, anywhere, at any time". The BBC gave no further details on the current incident involving Clarkson, and said it would not be making any further comment at this time. More -

    Got an email today that Weistec has released its Flash tune for the M133/45 motors and the results are impressive to say the least. Car made just over 400whp and 425wtq with the tune and downpipe/midpipe combo this was also on 91 octane so you can expect a decent improvement with 93 octane the rest of the country gets on a high strung turbo motor has to be worth atleast 10/15 whp. The torque gain is huge but more impressively the car makes power all the way to redline looks like a nice useable powerband. Sticky

    It is nice to finally have some performance numbers for the GAD W204 C63 AMG Black Series with an M157 twin turbo 5.5 liter V8 swap and 4Matic all wheel drive. We have seen the car demolish a Porsche 991 Turbo S from a roll and the 142.39 miles per hour trap speed explains why that happened as it is over 13 miles per hour higher than what the 991 Turbo S is capable of stock. GAD did not just stop at swapping in the AMG M157 5.5 liter twin turbo V8 in lieu of the naturally aspirated 6.2 liter M156 but they also added a Mercedes 4Matic all wheel drive drivetrain. That allows the C63 to hook up well off the line with all that turbo torque as evidenced by the 1.65 60 foot time. As far as modifications to the M157 it features GAD upgraded turbochargers: We do not have exact horsepower or torque figures but something around 750+ horses and 800+ lb-ft of torque is likely the range. Performance like this certainly should make AMG fans wish that Mercedes stuck the M157 in lighter chassis' than the factory offers like this W204 C63 for example. A 9 second all wheel drive twin turbo 5.5 liter V8 C-Class is just awesome.

    Funny how Red Bull was not threatening to quit Formula 1 when they were on top and dominating, eh? Actually, Red Bull's threat to quit comes off as kind of pathetic. Maybe they have spent too much time around Ferrari as we expect that kind of behavior from the Italians when they do not get their way. Red Bull Racing though? Come on, grow up and compete. Yes, Mercedes-AMG dominated the 2014 Formula 1 Season. Yes, they started this year with a 1-2 victory this past weekend. So instead of improving and beating Mercedes-AMG Red Bull has threatened to quit unless rule changes are made. Boo hoo too bad Red Bull, quit whining. It should not take rule changes to curb the supremacy of the AMG motor. It should take better engineering from the other engine suppliers. Either beat the Mercedes PU106A hybrid powerplant or use Mercedes-AMG as an engine supplier if you need to. If Mercedes-AMG is on top it is because they earned it. There was a time where Red Bull Racing dominated Mercedes-AMG. It seems Red Bull does not know how to handle being on the receiving end. Just a tad childish. Just a tad. Keep in mind Red Bull is under contract until 2020 with Formula 1. So this is just one of those things to put pressure on Formula 1 to change the rules. Red Bull Racing advisor Helmut Marko: "We will evaluate the situation again as every year and look into costs and revenues. If we are totally dissatisfied we could contemplate an F1 exit."

    Earlier this week BenzBoost posted an article where it requested dynographs based on SpeeDriven's claims of having a 1000+ horsepower M275 motor. BenzBoost did not get a graph for the exact R230 SL65 in question however we have two 800+ wheel horsepower graphs here. The first graph here is from a CL65 AMG with similar upgrades to the aforementioned SL65 AMG: The numbers? 831 wheel horsepower and 906 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. Very solid power and torque figures. If you use a 20% correction factor (you shouldn't as this is a flawed premise although tuners do it for crank hp bragging rights) you get 1038 crank horsepower. So you could say if you subscribe to 20% loss figures as a constant (drivetrain losses are not static) SpeeDriven has a 1000+ horsepower M275. Note we did not get the 851 wheel horsepower graph but hopefully SpeeDriven posts it at some point. We are very happy that SpeeDriven has provided us with graphs and of course to be noted it is the duty of BenzBoost as well the duty of the entire BoostAddict Performance Automotive Network to question and investigate tuner claims. Here is another graph from an M275 although this one just features billet wheels in what we assume is the OEM K24 housing so smaller turbos than the car in the graph above: Very nice power and torque figures. The M275 V12 still has a ton of room in it with some truly big turbos but it appears 831 wheel horsepower is the horsepower record for now until someone proves otherwise.
