    Whoa there McLaren! Not so fast. This talk coming from McLaren boss Ron Dennis sounds pretty good. He said, "I honestly believe that the next world champions after Mercedes will be McLaren. We'll get to that goal before other people." Will they though? McLaren has not won a race since the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2012. Mercedes-AMG won the Formula championship in 2014 and 2015. Is this year really shaping up any differently? The only thing that stopped Mercedes-AMG from winning the last race was their own drivers crashing into each other. The upcoming Monaco Grand Prix this Sunday is only the sixth race of the calendar so it is more than mathematically possible for someone to catch and pass Mercedes-AMG in the standings: It just does not look like it will be McLaren that does it. Only Ferrari and Red Bull seem to be putting up any kind of fight and Mercedes is still dominating. Realistically, McLaren doesn't have a shot until next year and Ron Dennis knows it. Plus, Honda really needs to improve their motor. Good luck with that. Source

    Velos Designwerks continues to expand its flash tune offering and is covering a nice array of models at this point. They recently released their Stage 2 ECU tune flash software for the Porsche 991.1 Turbo and Turbo S models. The results below are from a 991.1 Turbo S. The baseline comes in at 480 wheel horsepower and 536 lb-ft of torque at the wheels on an all wheel drive Dynojet. Solid power on Florida 93 octane. After the Stage 2 EECU flash dyno tune? 500 horsepower and 634 lb-ft of torque at the wheels in STD correction. That is just under 100 lb-ft of torque gained but as you can see on the graph it call comes down low in the rev range: As the torque gains taper to redline so does the horsepower gained. Peak power only goes up by 20 horsepower at the wheels but it's really all about the increase from 3000 to 4500 rpm here which one will really feel. For more top end punch one needs to modify the turbochargers. Peak gains of over 140 tq & 100 hp Custom ECU Tune Higher torque over factory settings throughout RPM range Recalibrated mapping resulting in a smoother and more responsive part throttle transition Calibrations available of 91,93 and 100 octane levels (Personal Tuner can be loaded w/ multiple maps) Increase rev limiter by 300 rpm (optional) Modified Vanos camshaft remapping eliminating rough cold start enable Raised RPM thresholds in specific gears Tech support and assistance Remote & Local Install Available

    This is something I can definitely make: Makes 9–12 INGREDIENTS: 2 large white onions 3–4 slices mozzarella cheese 2 cups flour 5 eggs 2 cups bread crumbs Oil, for frying Marinara sauce INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Peel and cut onions into 1-centimeter rings, then separate the rings. 2. Slice the mozzarella into 4 even strips, and place a smaller onion ring in the center of a larger one. Fill the gap between the rings with strips of mozzarella. Repeat with remaining onion rings and freeze them for 1 hour. 3. Place the flour, eggs, and bread crumbs into three separate bowls. Dip each prepared ring into the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs, then back into the egg, and one last time into the bread crumbs. Repeat with the remaining onion rings. 4. Heat the oil in a pot over high heat. Fry the rings until golden brown, being careful not to fry them for too long as the cheese may ooze out completely. 5. Serve with marinara!

    I just want to see what a W4 all wheel drive E63 with the upgraded trans does in the 1/4. I'm guessing 9's in the ~140 range.

    I keep looking on Craigslist for a Weber 22 inch smokey mountain but the one that come up sold :( I'm going to keep it up but basically this thread is so awesome along with all the info posted that I can't wait to start smoking.

Look at this: Helpful Information Prep Time: 45 minutes Cook Time: 3 hours Smoker Temp: 225-240F Meat Finish Temp: 160F Recommended Wood: Oak or Pecan What You’ll Need 2 lbs ground breakfast sausage (Jimmy Deans, JC Potter, etc.) 1 lb original or thin sliced bacon (16 slices approx.) lb ham, diced into quarter inch pieces 1.5 cups sharp cheddar, grated Jeff’s original rub recipe (purchase recipes here) Jeff’s original barbecue sauce (purchase recipes here) Foil and/or wax paper Also, been looking at thermometers.

    Amazing product, Forged rods & Pistons, W4 turbo system and a bullet proof trans plus install will surely carry a hefty $$$$ total but the finish car would be incredible! Weistec, my car is free for you to sponsor with the W4 setup if you'd like haha, just a tune and down pipes and I love this thing!

    The only thing is it may be an event worth going to once. By 2021 what will tickets be costing? I wish I had friend who actually spent money as I'm not going to go alone and I don't want to pay for others. Who knows, maybe I'll have a girlfriend by then. Then again, the Browns have a better chance of winning the SuperBowl than that happening.

    This has been sold and I dont think this works for the newer N55, I think you need Harness B or a different JB4 unit entirely Really easy to install though
