    The Golf R has some real competition in the United States and it is from Ford no less. Unfortunately, the Focus RS was not sold in the USA previously and but the European got to enjoy it. Well, now in the USA you can buy a Focus RS or a Golf R and it's time to see which one rules. The Focus RS already beat out the world's best hot hatches in a huge comparison test earlier this year. It is not the fastest in a straight line but it is the quickest around the track and the best all around hatchback. What the Golf R really has going for it compared to the Focus RS is the DSG gearbox. The Golf R has the smaller 2.0 liter engine compared to the Ecoboost 2.3 liter motor and it is down roughly 50 horses. Can the dual clutch trans and a bit less weight make up for this power deficit? No. The Golf R does keep up quite well but the Focus RS requires a bit more skill to extract performance from. As this is Evo no trap speeds are provided which partially defeats the purpose of a drag race. Regardless, the Focus RS is not only more powerful and the quicker car it is also the better driver's car. It's just simply the better enthusiast choice.

    Color us a bit skeptical here as the gains are huge. The dyno was done at Cobb Socal though and Cobb certainly is reputable but what role they played in these dyno runs and how IPD is marketing them is unknown. Gains of 70 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels at 4300 rpm from a plenum and Y-pipe? From the looks of these dynos (and why the hell are the graphs so small? Seriously, what's the point of providing graphs people can't even read?) the gains all come in the mid-range with the plenum and Y-Pipe. Let's look at the plenum alone: There is a jump of 55 lb-ft of torque at 4300 rpm which fades quickly. You see an increase for a few hundred RPM. Now, that's good if true but hardly broad. Now look at the plenum with the Y-pipe: 70 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels over stock at 4300 rpm. You see gains basically from 3800-5200. The Y-pipe does provide a slightly better curve but it's really just that mid-section where the majority of the gains come from. Is it a Porsche intake defect? What is the explanation here? We definitely want to see independent testing that verifies these claims. Not to mention, graphs that are readable. IPD took delivery of its 991.2 Turbo S and the R & D started the second it arrived at its new home. The new Turbo doesnt substantially benefit from any one particular upgrade, but the sum of its improvements deliver a superior overall Turbo compared to the already impressive 991.1 Turbo it replaces. Yes, we know the latest Turbo is faster with 20 more horsepower but its the combination of lightening shifts, razor sharp handling and spiritual connection to the vehicle that elevates the driving experience of the extraordinary new 991.2 Turbo. Porsche made a number of substantial upgrades with the latest 991.2 Turbo. Engine improvements include revised intake ports, larger injectors, higher volume fuel pump, larger turbo compressor wheels and more efficient intercoolers, but the factory intake system remained relatively unchanged allowing the IPD Plenum and Y-Pipe to fit with only minor modifications. The 991.2 Turbo Plenum upgrade delivers staggering engine power and torque gains that will raise the performance bar of the already potent supercar as well as the hairs on your neck. Horsepower gains are found throughout the entire power band with the bulk of the gains being realized between the 3500-5000 RPM range. Max power gains of 45+ wheel HP come in at 4300 RPM and hold strong all the way to redline. Torque is even more impressive at 60+ in the midrange with a massive torque gains from 3500-5000 RPM.

    A little leak here from Lamborghini which shows the 2017 Huracan Superleggera we recently saw lapping the ring will get a bump in output to 630 horsepower. Yes, the leak shows 639 horsepower but that is the result for converting KW (Kilowatts) to metric horsepower (PS). The point really is that the Superleggera will have more power and less weight. Expect something in the 32XX pound range which is roughly 200 pounds less than the LP 610-4. Will another 28 horses give the Superleggera enough acceleration to top rivals at McLaren and Ferrari? No, the naturally aspirated 5.2 liter V10 simply can not match the raw grunt of those boosted V8's. The Superleggera is about laptimes though so we will see how it stacks up. Also, if they intend to make a RWD version and really drop some weight.

    Not your fault, sticky even has it in the original article that the R is DSG. Yeah I watched a video from Cobb showing that black cover they removed from the intercooler. Doesn't make much sense to me but neither did the shutters on the ST focus.
