    Insane numbers here from an F10 M5 tuned by HC Performance. The S63TU engine has upgraded EFR turbochargers from Borg Warner and a built motor from Bimmer Performance Center in Raleigh, North Carolina. Other than the custom ECU flash dyno tune the car has upgraded clutches. The result? 846 horsepower and 772 lb-ft of torque at the wheels with DIN correction: There is more in it according to the tuner but apparently something in the transmission is holding is holding things back. The dyno run is claimed to be at 26 psi but there is no boost graph. Is 900+ whp about to become reality for the S63TU in 2017?

    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.

    I'm just looking into the M3 rack install and people have mixed thoughts, some say that the 335i don't have Servotronic, and some others say that the E92 335is has Servotronic, so I wanted to confirm, does the E92 335is have or not have Servotronic? How do I check whether it has it or not, is it possible to confirm by checking the VIN and packages? If the 335is doesn't have Servotronic, then does that mean the M3 (which is also non-Servotronic) will just be a direct bolt-on? I know a few members on Bimmerboost have done this, and would love to hear your thoughts.

    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.

    800+ horsepower to all four wheels is pretty much the norm now for M157's with upgraded turbochargers. These two AMG's both have turbo upgrades although from different sources. Let's look at the E63 AMG S first: 799.45 to the wheels but let's just be nice and round to 800. This output is achieved with AMS turbochargers, AMS airboxes, Weistec charge pipes, an AMS upgraded transmission, and a meth kit. Precision Tuning ties it all together. Now onto the CLS63 AMG S which has Forced Performance turbochargers. It is on the stock transmission so the 847 wheel horsepower tune (wish we had the full graph with the torque) will likely be dialed down. Still, impressive peak figures on the stock motor and transmission: Both cars are running methanol to hit these figures and that is important to note. It is also important to note that ~800 horsepower to the wheels is regularly hit with M157's these days. The platform is doing well.

    The goal here is 800+ horsepower as stated by Turbo Lab of America. What are they doing? Well, they are massaging the factory S55 turbo housings considerably. They are stuffing TDOHL 20G wheels into the OEM housing which requires a bit of machining as the video below covers. Does it produce 800 horsepower? That is a good question. They are working on it and this upgrade if it comes to fruition will be a very nice value in the S55 turbo upgrade market. It is somewhat difficult to get information on the Turbo Lab of America S55 upgrades as they do not have a very good web presence. They do have Youtube videos but their website is lacking and they primarily sell on Ebay. There certainly is promise here and it is worth watching for F80 M3 and F82 M4 owners.

    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.

    Hey guys...Unfortunely it is time to let this car go. Car was a blast to drive and deff turned heads and received plenty of compliments! Car has tons of mods, cosmetics, performance, ect... I was going to have a motor built by motiv and throw a doc race single turbo kit on, but I've decided to part ways and move to a different platform. The car will need a motor, as one of the rods let go. Like I said, I was going to throw a built n54 in but things changed.The car has the following: PERFORMANCE: Rb super evo turbos Rb inlets and outlets Vrsf Downpipes Motiv port injection Fuel it stage 3 lpfp Stett chargepipe and tail bov Vrsf 7in intercooler Split second pi controller Kw v1 coilovers New low mileage auto trans Control arms M3 race alignment ...prob more I'm missing COSMETICS: custom vinyl wrap (car is jet black underneath, perfect paint) 18in apex arc 8 with Michelin pss M3 carbon fiber hood Amuse carbon fiber trunk Mtech rear bumper with quad tips Tints all around Vinyled window trim Dtm style headlights M3 front bumper with cf lip Custom brake caliper covers INTERIOR: Black interior with sport seats i drive system carbon fiber wrapped interior trim *car has backup sensors as well Click the link for pics:http://s825.photobucket.com/user/serbball3r5/library/BMW%20335Car is ready for someone to take home, it is perfect for someone who wants to drop a motor into something that is ready to go with all supporting mods. Pm me or text 630-400-4363 if interested. Located in Chicago, IL. Price is $14,000 as I have well over $10,000 in mods alone! No low ballers please. Car is in perfect condition. Clean title, no accidents

    Very cool project here from New German Performance. They did the grunt work in taking out the engine from this Lotus Exige and replacing it with a Volkswagen 2.0 TSI turbo motor. The swap is actually quite clean and very well done. The motor looks right at home. A Stage III turbo kit from APR was sourced and installed. The car is now at APR for final tuning. The final result should be something spectacular as the roughly 2100 pound car will have a lot more power and torque. If we go with a conservative 400 horsepower the power to weight ratio will be 5.25 pounds per horse. In other words, roughly that of a Gen V Viper with more power on tap should the owner turn up the boost.

    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.

    Selling my Turner Motorsports tuner, had it on for just over a month now, less than 2,000 miles on it! Perfect mod for a smooth but noticeable power increase, geared towards the daily driver who just wants a little extra on their commutes. This chip overrides the stock ECU for optimal integration and doesn't leave any traces when returning to stock, easier to install than other tuners on the market, with only three connections needed to be made. Turner quotes 72 hp and 90 ft-lb torque in gains with this module. Virtually mint condition, only been installed once, works perfectly! Asking $575 shipped, only to domestic us states. Accepting PayPal, so don't forget about that pesky 3% fee. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions!

    The reason Teslas are so quick in the 1/4 mile is because they have a mountain of torque available instantly. That is the beauty of an electric motor. The P100D in particular as it is the most powerful Tesla offering rated at 760 horsepower and 791 lb-ft of torque. The horsepower is a bit overstated but the peak torque figure is considerably underrated: 588 horsepower and 920 lb-ft of torque on a Mustang dyno. That is likely over 1000 lb-ft at the wheels on a Dynojet. Compare the P100D numbers to a P85D: http://www.boostaddict.com/content.php?5627-Tesla-Model-S-P85D-shows-864-lb-ft-of-torque-at-wheels-on-a-Mustang-dyno The torque and especially the horsepower figures are much stronger but as you can see everything comes down low and quickly tapers off. If 0-60 and stoplights are your thing, nothing is going to beat the P100D in Ludicrous mode.

    Well, a hell of a lot quicker. Which it should be as the McLaren P1 GTR is a multi-million dollar track special with over 1000 horsepower. The P1 GTR takes everything that is great about the P1 and makes it even better specifically to shave time off laps. It's lighter, more powerful, and it is not street legal. The Mclaren 675LT is street legal however and also a fraction of the price. It also offers a fraction of the performance as despite the 675LT being a rocket the P1 GTR trounces it by four seconds (as it should): It does so on a fairly short and tight track as well. A difference of four seconds in that context is a lifetime. You know what they say, there is always a bigger fish.
