    To BimmerBoost's knowledge this is the most powerful E82 1M out there. It comes from Sports Mind in Bahrain which is a Doc Race dealer. The 773 peak horsepower is nice but look at the torque curve. The spool and shape is incredible. This is with 34 psi of boost on VP C85 fuel: Beautiful. It has to be a ton of fun to drive although some BimmerBoost members are questioning the spool. Just an incredibly well done 1M.

    Here it is, the Weistec W.4 AMG M157 5.5 liter V8 turbocharger upgrade package. BenzBoost showed teasers previously of the turbo hardware and a preliminary dynograph. Well, the production kit shows 856 horsepower and 759 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. That is at all four wheels on a 2016 W212 E63 AMG S. Additionally, with 91 octane pump fuel at 20 psi with supplemental methanol injection. The car also has the Weistec 722.9 Bulletproof transmission upgrade: That is a ton of power and torque and keep in mind this is not with the turbochargers turned up as this M157 is stock internally. There will be a W.5 package with forged internals which of course have been available from Weistec since last year. What will this turbo upgrade do with a built M157 and the turbos cranked up? Well, we will soon find out but expecting 1000+ is within reason. As for performance the W.4 was measured at 60-130 in 6.153 seconds: We will have to wait and see on the 1/4 mile times. Overall, Weistec has done a ton of testing on the W.4 upgrade and you can rest assured that it delivers as advertised: http://weistec.com/m157-w-4-package.html M157 W.4 Package The M157 W.4 package is the package for customers seeking the pinnacle of performance and refinement. At the core of the M157 W.4 Package is the M157 W.4 Turbo Upgrade. Taking a giant leap ahead of all other available upgrades, the M157 W.4 Turbochargers completely replace the factory units. They are ball bearing, featuring CNC machined billet aluminum compressor wheels capable of flowing 65lb/min. To feed these monster turbochargers, completely new airboxes and intake tubes are included. The Weistec Turbo-Folds provide significantly increased flow of exhaust gasses compared to the stock turbo-fold. The Weistec M157 True Downpipes perfectly mate up to the M157 W.4 Turbochargers to ensure minimal restriction once the exhaust gasses have gone through the turbine. An Engineered Solution The W.4 Turbochargers are the most capable production turbochargers available for the M157 engine. The W.4 Turbocharger Package which includes our M157 ASV/Water-Methanol Injection System is capable of producing 1000+ crank horsepower (820~850HP at the wheels on a Dynojet Dyno) on 91 octane pump gas. What’s equally impressive is that these numbers are achieved at only 20psi, and 20 psi is only the beginning. The goal of the W.4 Turbocharger Package was to have a complete package that provides amazing gains in power and performance, but does not require race gas, or an iced down intercooler system. Something that can be daily driven, filled up at any gas station, and is within power capacity of the factory engine internals. Control = Reliability While the M157 engine is a very robust engine in factory form, we have seen a couple weak leaks at extreme power levels. The most common is a bent connecting rod. If the engine is producing a sustained 1000 lb-ft of torque (820-850 lb-ft at the wheels) or more, all it takes is one knock event to bend a rod. This was taken into consideration with the ECU tuning for the W.4 Power Package as they can make far more power and torque than a stock M157 engine can handle. Boost is controlled and tapered up to the peak of 20psi as RPM’s increase. This creates a broad torque curve that remains under 800 lb-ft (at the wheels) while allowing power to continually increase towards redline, minimizing stress on the rods as well as the rest of the drivetrain. With a fully built M157 and other supporting upgrades, expect to see significantly higher power numbers as the Turbochargers can flow enough air volume for 1400+ crank horsepower!

    Doc Race's top mount N54 manifold is popular for several reasons. One, it is a quality piece that actually fits the way it is supposed to. That is kind of a good thing to have so you aren't hammering your manifold to get your hood to close. Also, they have experience doing turbo manifolds for over a decade now. Their piece simply works well and produces great numbers. Let's take a look at the dyno runs: Here is the breakdown: 14psi on map1 20psi 28psi 31psi At 31 psi you see 738 wheel horsepower on the Dynojet. Also 695 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. The graph is not exactly the highest resolution but it is a good looking curve and the manifold works well at various boost levels. Just a solid product as to be expected from Doc Race.

    TPG Tuning recently ran an incredible 140+ mile per hour pass in the 1/4 mile with their F82 M4 shop car. That led to BimmerBoost wondering how they were solving the problem with the S55 engine's crank hub spinning. Well, they are not solving it. Mitigating it is perhaps a better term but the root of the problem is the design of the crank itself. BMW went cheap. Too cheap. Especially for an M car when they decided to put the timing and oil pump gear on a separate piece instead of integrating it as in the S63 V8 design. As that engine goes into a more expensive car BMW did not go as extreme in cutting costs. Also, it is not like this is the first time BMW has screwed up on a BMW M motor but in the past there were real solutions. There is no real solution for the F80 M3 and F82 M4 and there likely never will be: Basically, to do this correctly and fix the problem you need to re-engineer the crank design. That is not cheap. Can it be done? Yes. Is anyone going to do it? Probably not. Even if they do will people line up to buy it? The final cost likely makes it not worth the investment. At least TPG Tuning feels that way. Other solutions have been tried. Gintani's approach was a one piece crank hub: This piece was tested on Maximum PSI's car but the crank hub spun. Gintani believes they did not torque the piece correctly but whatever happened the crank hub spun. Speaking of Maximum PSI, they are trying a different approach now. They are going to drill the crank: Is that going to work? Who knows. We will have to wait and see. You may be asking, how did TPG Tuning have success and how is their motor holding together? Well, they are using a one piece billet crank hub design but with some additional changes: There may also be a bit of luck involved but their motor is holding together for now and the crank hub is not spinning. It is not like they are not beating on it either. The problem is really for everyone else modifying the platform. The crank hub just feels like a ticking time bomb and as power is added the issue is only compounded further. TPG Tuning also is not offering their pieces to the public: It is not hard to relate to TPG Tuning. The BMW tuning community is hypocritical. They want fast cars yet are not willing to put in the work to get there. Those who do put in the work are chastised if things do not work out as planned. It is like dealing with a bunch of spoiled brats. Especially when it comes to the M3 world. This is all very unfortunate as the S55 was such a promising platform. There is no need to write it off completely as cars are making big power but if in the back of your mind you know a failure is coming at some point how can you really enjoy it? Enthusiasts just have to hope someone figures out a solution someday. BimmerBoost would like to thank Jason @ TPG Tuning for his time and to wish TPG Tuning good luck on their goal of breaking into the 9's on the S55 platform.

    "Ask any racer. Any real racer. It don't matter if you win by an inch or a mile. Winning's winning." Everyone remembers that quote from the first Fast and the Furious movie. You know, the movie that was about street racing and the scene that surrounded it? Well, something happened to the franchise. It shifted focus from car racing to action scenes. This was good for the box office but there is little remaining for car enthusiasts. The reason the Fast and the Furious originally appealed is that chase scenes, races, and awesome cars were the focus. The vehicle action scenes almost seem forced in the later movies. Bloomberg posted an excellent piece detailing how things changes. Let's just take a look at a few of their data points: You can read the full (and very well done) article here: https://www.bloomberg.com/graphics/2017-fast-and-furious/ At least there is room for a new movie or even franchise that is more centered around cars as the Fast and the Furious moved toward big budget action scenes and Hollywood starpower.

    This is glorious and well deserved. Remember when Pure Turbos released their excellent M177 turbo upgrade for the W205 C63 platform and an idiot by the name of @1fastc63s started running his mouth about how the dyno numbers are fake, Dime's turbo upgrade is better, and proceeded to challenge everyone on Instagram to race in order to prove it? Well, he got his wish. Oh boy did he get his wish. Let's start with a DME Tuning tuned C218 CLS63 M157 with two passengers pulling the Dime turbo upgraded W205 C63 S M177: Well, that did not work out as planned, did it? Now to truly highlight the insecurity and immaturity of this kid with the C63 S, here he is getting pulled by an F82 M4 on the factory S55 turbochargers and a DME Tuning ECU flash tune. The beatdown is so bad he tilts the camera down and refuses to provide the rest of the footage: He mad? He mad: Way to go winner!

    When you can no longer option your BMW M car with a manual transmission and an automatic is the only choice the conversion of the M brand from roadcourse to dragstrip will officially be complete. That is exactly where we are headed according to BMW M's VP of sales and marketing Peter Quintus. We already know the next generation F90 M5 will be available with a ZF automatic gearbox. Why? Because the unit is already tried and tested with the Audi C7 RS6 and RS7 which are all wheel drive models. The M5 going to all wheel drive puts more stress on the drivetrain and with all that twin turbo V8 torque a stout gearbox is needed. Why spend the money to develop a new dual clutch for the all wheel drive system when you can just plug in ZF's solution? That is exactly what Mercedes-AMG did with the W212 and W213 generation 4Matic E63's. Fine, they are cutting costs. No surprise there. However, the manual looks like it will follow the dual clutch out the door. That is not good: He also says the manual gearboxes can not cope with the torque which is a joke. He also takes a shot at American manual gearboxes which seem to have no trouble with big torque: Awful shift quality? Based on what? Also, how is the ZF automatic any lighter than a good manual gearbox? It isn't. It is heavier. So what the hell kind of logical argument is that? What this comes down to is that M is moving to all wheel drive to put the torque down and if the next generation M3 and M4 are all wheel drive they will simply plug in the ZF gearbox rather than develop a dual clutch. The DCT is still the enthusiast and performance choice and the manual is obviously the choice for driver interaction. Oh well, this is the new M. Source

    I'm just curious if the return on a Dyno by renting out time on it makes an actual business case?

    Talk about some pretty impressive hardware! Evolve took their tuned F10 M5 to Vmax event which is essentially top end racing. Their ECU tuned F10 M5 did not shy away from some stout competition and it did incredibly well. C7 Audi RS6. The all wheel drive wagon gets the F10 M5 as it just goes WOT off the line but the M5 runs it down and passes easily. Just a much stronger top end pull: Next up is a tuned W205 C63 AMG S. The C63 just is outclassed: Now we get to the good stuff. How about a Pagani Huayra? The odds of ever seeing one are slim let alone getting a run with one. The Huayra features a 700 horsepower AMG M158 twin turbo V12. Yes, it can be tuned although this seems to be a stock example. It is blistering fast in stock form and only weighs 3064 pounds. The M5 and the Huayra are door to door but then the Pagani starts to edge at higher speeds. The BMW sedan really hangs in there well against an incredible exotic: Next up is a Lamborghini Huracan. It just does not have the top end pull to compete: Finally, a Porsche 991 Turbo S. The Porsche just rockets off the line and has a huge lead. The M5 has to run it down but begins to close the gap. It actually manages to catch up and pass. An event like this where the M5 can really stretch its legs is well suited to its strengths.

    I'm exploring wheel options and I feel HRE is played out. Started looking at BC Forged and they have some very cool wheels and finishes. Anyone know more about them or tried out their wheels? Pricing is reasonable IMO.

    This S14 was fully drag prepped with slicks, and looked pretty fast, he was on it hard, not sure if this was just a shake down, he was limited by traction or gearing, but this is not even fair... One of the three 172 passes on the day...:naughty:

    Well, at least that is what the guy would have you believe. Sorry for the poor photo but I was driving and it was hard to get a shot with my cell phone while keeping pace as he tried to pull away: M5 badge on a 535i or 540i. Traffic opens up and I easily blow by him without trying. We get a light and I roll down the window and tell him that he wishes that was a real M5. He laughs and nods then tells me he has an i8 and an M550i on order. Young guy with a fake M5 so I don't buy it but whatever. I give him the hit off the line and destroy him by bus lengths. Seeing the fake M5 just brought up something in me that I had to expose it. I might not have been in the M but I still feel the need to call people on this kind of BS.
