    The built motor era for the S63TU engine platform is getting going thanks to BPC (Bimmer Performance Center). They have a built engine package with some impressive specs that will increase the durability and capability of the S63TU 4.4 liter twin turbo V8. Those looking into this package will be people pushing the motor with turbo upgrades. When over 700 lb-ft of torque at the wheels, peace of mind becomes increasingly important: Some engines will last longer. Some engines will not. There are many factors such as fuel quality, torque, use, mileage, tune quality, etc. If you drive around town with a turbo upgrade getting groceries it is not exactly the same thing as going WOT on the roadcourse for hours of laps. This is the list of upgraded components: BPC Spec Darton Flanged Sleeves Optimized wall thickness for strength that far exceeds factory Alusil cylinders without compromising block integrity or cooling characteristics BPC Spec Carrillo H-Beam Rods Rated at 1500 HP BPC Spec Diamond Coated Pistons Thermal coated crown and teflon coated skirts. BPC Spec Total Seal Stainless Steel Piston Rings BPC Spec Calico Coated Main & Rod Bearings BPC Spec spark plugs They also offer these services: Engine Block CNC Bore & Hone Process CNC Main Bearing Line Hone BPC Spec Optimized Engine clearances Precision Balanced Rotating Assembly Cylinder Head BPC Spec Ported Cylinder Heads BPC Spec Valve seat machining CNC Cylinder Head Resurfacing Now, combining a built motor setup like this with a turbo upgrade is key. We saw the BPC built S63TU motor with their Borg Warner EFR 7163 turbo upgrade put out 846 horsepower to the wheels in an F10 M5 with preliminary tuning. They are shooting for over 1000+ and that is really where the upgraded engine components will be put to the test. How much does this all cost? Well, they didn't tell us. Expect to pay to play. The S63TU platform is poised to have a very big 2017.

    A humbling experience here but a full bolt on Nissan GTR is no slouch. Neither is a BMW N54 with the Pure Stage 2 turbo upgrade. The E60 chassis is a bit heavier than your typical N54 and namely an E82 1-Series variant. Run what you brung though. This E60 belongs to BimmerBoost member @viperware and it is a strong car. His vehicle is a 2010 E60 535i with FBO, JB4, Port Injection, Pure Stage 2, RB Inlets, VTT outlets, and an MFactory LSD. It just wasn't enough.

    The W211 Mercedes E55 AMG may be fourteen years old at this point but it still continues to impress. When Mercedes-AMG threw a 5.5 liter V8 (M113K) into an E-Class chassis and supercharged it, they sent a message. Look at how capable the M133K motor still is today. Eurocharged ATX (Austin, Texas) is getting very nice numbers out of the motor. Take a look at the modifications: Setup: 2005 E55 Stock Motor Stock Heads Stock Cams Stock Trans (at the moment) Fuel System: 2x Walbro 450cc in the factory baskets Custom Fuel Lid for Passenger's side -10AN from tank, through external FPR and Filter Split factory rail with -6 inlet on each Mods - FBO American Racing Longtubes 90mm TB 178mm Crank 77mm S/C Pulley 650cc Injectors Eurocharged ATX Flex Fuel We are talking bolt on modifications with an upgraded fuel system for ethanol. Nothing crazy there yet the engine design which is well over a decade old is showing 643 horsepower to the tires. They plan on doing some further tuning with higher ethanol contents but suffice it to say the W211 E55 is an all time great.

    The new PorscheBoost and BoostAddict project car is finally here. Say hello to this 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera. In other words, the new 991.2 generation with the B6 twin turbo 3.0 liter motor. The car has all the goodies including Sport Chrono, PDK, and the Sport Exhaust. The goal will be to produce 911 Turbo S humbling performance at a fraction of the cost in a lighter package. Think of it as building your own GT2. PorscheBoost already reached out to several tuners/vendors including: Fabspeed @COBB Tuning GIAC BMS IPD @VF-Engineering @Pure Turbos This should be a very fun project. Apologies for the poor photography as the sun made things difficult. Expect better photo shoots as things progress.

    McLaren is hyping up their 650S replacement quite well. The new car is expected to be called the 720S (P14 was the codename) and so far we know it has a revised 4.0 liter V8 engine as well as a new carbon fiber tub that is stiffer and lighter. What the video below shows is the chassis control. Drifting a car like this is somewhat cheesy but the goal here is to show that the car is so responsive to input you can have it dance around corners if you want it to. The torque from the new motor certainly helps and you can see the tail get adjusted using the throttle. This is the type of vehicle that you can have pinpoint response with and it will reward a good driver. For drivers whose skills are not quite up to par, new stability control is fortunately part of the package.

    Yeah without knowing the mod list it's tough. Based on how he pulled it definitely needs to be FBO on E85 at the minimum one would think.

    i thought the liberal left was into science? if they knew their science they would know 13yr old has already entered puberty and having sexual relationship with such a individual is Hebephilia, not pedophilia which deals with prepubescent individuals..... oh that's right, facts/science dont really matter to the left when it doesnt support their agenda..... now lena duhnam is a Pedophile since her sister was definitely prepubescent , but for some reason its cool the to left because she's on their side :) disclaimer i dont agree with Hebephilia either, but the left-wing news needs to at least get their facts straight instead of lying as usual
