    Great results here on a built motor supercharged E46 M3 which belongs to BimmerBoost member BMtroubleYOU. He got his S54 engine built by VAC Motorsports who dropped the compression to 11.0:1 (the OEM S54 is 11.5:1). He also added the VAC Motorsports Stage 1 ported cylinder head. Next up was a VF-Engineering VF570 kit which includes a Vortech V3si blower. As the motor is built he upped the boost to 14 psi along with 50/50 water methanol injection. The result is an impressive 633 wheel horsepower pull although there is a bit of a spike at the end. Regardless, there are multiple pulls over 600 wheel horsepower and this is one of the strongest supercharged E46 M3's in the world. Full details in the owner's own words below along with the dynographs. Gentlemen, After all these deployments and First Sergeant duties, I finally got to finish my project. For those that are in the M3 Forum, and followed my build seeing my M3 being build from the beginning, Well finally, here it is. The dyno sheet is also attached.

    In a few weeks, we will be introducing the follow-up to the FF01 FlowForm Wheels design, the FF15. SEMA will serve as the launch platform for the second FlowForm Wheels model and we can't wait... Here's a sneak peek!

    Daimler is messing around with all its naming schemes and the latest genius idea someone in their office had was to bring back the Maybach moniker. You probably know that Maybach was officially killed off in 2013 and Mercedes announced it would do so back in 2011. So what is going on here? Mercedes is splitting the car division three ways. Mercedes-Benz will denote the standard cars. Mercedes-AMG will be used with the performance cars. Mercedes-Maybach will now denote their premium luxury segment. This certainly brings up a lot of questions such as what will the first Mercedes-Maybach car be? Is Mercedes still doing the Pullman long wheelbase S-Class or will that now be a Maybach model after Mercedes specifically stated they were getting away from the Maybach name? Who knows what they intend to do but Maybach, at least for now, appears to be back. Source

    There are major changes in store for the Porsche 911, that much is certain. However, a recent report from CAR stated that when the 991 generation receives its mid-cycle refresh all models will be turbocharged. CAR is taking some major liberties with the details and that is what they typically do. To begin with, CAR does not have an official source on this. They do not have a quote from anyone, a picture of a turbo engine, or anything to go along with this report other than a test mule they are guessing off. We do know that Porsche has tested a new turbocharged powerplant in the 991 Carrera / Carrera S body but the motor was a turbo four-cylinder and not the new turbo flat-6 being reported. Now, the new turbo boxer four-cylinder engine is expected to be a fully modular platform and essentially the 911 flat-six with two cylinders removed and boost added. CAR says Porsche will downsize the flat-6 engine to 2.9 liters from 3.4. That certainly is possible as the four-cylinder will not hit that displacement. Where things get very speculative is that CAR states the 911 Carrera will go up to 400 horsepower. Ok, fine, that is possible. They then state the Carrera S will get a turbo 3.8 liter and go to 530 horsepower. Well, um, is that not basically what the 911 Turbo is? The Carrera S has never swelled by over 100 horsepower with a refresh and this redundancy in the lineup with the Turbo does not make sense. A rear wheel drive turbo 911 is a GT2 isn't it? Porsche stated the level of power they are making creates traction issues for a turbo rear wheel drive 911 plus the Carrera S also is available as a 4S. CAR is just guessing wildly. The GT3 will remain naturally aspirated so all 911's will not be turbo. At least not yet but signs sure point toward this. We will have to wait and get concrete details from a source that can actually tell us what the source for information actually is. Source
