    The Pure Turbos Stage 2 N54 upgrade sure looks like the real deal. The turbo upgrade is not 'officially' out yet but expect it next month. For now what we have seen is numbers in the 6XX wheel range and here is a preview of the real world capability. BimmerBoost member @pr3ci5n335i in the video below runs his E90 automatic 335i against a 2014 Nissan GTR on E85 with full bolt ons. The 335i is at roughly 25 psi of boost and also has full bolt ons in addition to the Pure Turbos Stage 2 N54 turbo upgrade. He also has the TFT inlets and his fuel in the video is an E50 blend with meth injection. The 335i takes the hit here but steadily pulls the GTR until it shuts down. Definitely an impressive result considering what bolt on GTR's on E85 are capable of. 2010 E90 M 335i: Alpina AT, FBO (VRSF 5" Stepped FMIC, Catless with BMW PE, TFT upper and lower chargepipes, HKS BOV, BMS 2 gallon Meth kit, Stage 1 Walbro 255 inline LPFP, BMS low temperature thermostat bypass), JB4 map 3 80add, BMS E85 Flash using MHD, Pure S2 turbos, APEX Arc-8, no rear seats

    Jonny Lieberman works for MotorTrend and you probably have seen him in the Head 2 Head episodes. BimmerBoost has nothing against him although we wonder how someone gets a job with MotorTrend when they make basic mistakes. Liberman's job is to know about the cars he is talking about. Which is why BimmerBoost made it a point to explain that in the latest Head 2 Head where he states the ATS-V is more powerful than the F80 M3 because the M3 has 'only' 425 horsepower Liberman and MotorTrend are wrong. Very wrong. Absurdly wrong. Embarrassingly wrong. The F80 M3 and the F82 M4 are severely underrated. The car makes much more than its 425 horsepower crank rating. Frankly, it is closer to a wheel horsepower rating than a crank horsepower rating. One should assume this simply by juxtaposing the acceleration figures of the F80 M3 and E90 M3. The difference is not 11 horses. MotorTrend's own test figures prove that. The F80 M3 is insanely underrated. Now we have dyno results showing 427 horsepower to the wheels for the F80 M3. We have stock 1/4 mile times showing 11.9 @ 119. Liberman claims to be aware of the M3 being underrated but when asked for proof provided nothing to support this. Additionally, he does not mention the M3 is underrated in the Head 2 Head video. He states the ATS-V is more powerful. He also on Twitter states his support for this as the ATS-V being quicker despite being heavier. While the ATS-V does indeed get a 12.1 second elapsed time as tested by MotorTrend the F80 M3 gets a 12.3 @ 118.1 miles per hour. The ATS-V hits 12.1 at a slower 116.2. The only thing Liberman gets right here is that the ATS-V is quicker but it is not faster. Trap speed is primarily a product of power. MotorTrend's own numbers and Liberman's own statement support BimmerBoost. Point easily proven without even having to show the dyno numbers. Not to mention, the guy should probably know that a RWD car with a ton of torque that traps higher will improve its elapsed time with better traction off the line. That means the M3 with drag radials can be a hell of a lot quicker. Perhaps MotorTrend just doesn't know how to launch as well. Liberman goes on to state I need to check my facts. The same man who called the new S65 AMG V12 an M275 model despite it being the updated M279 V12 variant from AMG. He conveniently ignores this point. One who does not get their own facts correct should not be telling others to check theirs. Liberman and MotorTrend need to check their own facts. Rather than lobbing insults for getting called on their mistakes, they should correct them. There is no shame in being wrong. There is a bit of shame in a 'kid' knowing the facts better than the professional though, right? Liberman, if you ever want to engage in a debate with me feel free. Based on what I have seen so far it will be one-sided. Whenever you want to, I'm right here. MotorTrend, when you are ready to hire someone who checks their facts, let me know.

    We have seen a drag race between these two cars before with the Aventador coming out on top. The Aventador should come out on top although the two cars are closely matched. The Aventador is more powerful thanks to its larger 6.5 liter V12 but it is also heavier. It also has an ISR (Independent Shift Rod) transmission instead of a DCT (dual clutch) transmission. It looks like the Huracan's shift speed pays dividends in this race. The difference between the two is almost 100 horsepower and 100 lb-ft of torque. This certainly means the previous result we saw makes sense as it is close but the Aventador edges up top. In this race the Aventador has the lower trap speed which leaves us scratching our heads. Both cars are said to have an exhaust but is there more going on here? Another standing kilometer run between these two shows the Aventador as the faster of the two with the higher trap speeds although it does have an aftermarket exhaust. Keep in mind we have seen these cars on the highway as well with the Aventador showing its power advantage. This is the only result we have seen thus far with a Huracan coming out on top and trapping higher than its big brother. They are close, no doubt, but we think modifications play a role in the outcome here based on precedent.

    This MotorTrend Head 2 Head episode is not exactly their best. Why? Well, because it is rehashing a MotorTrend comparison we already saw a month ago. Except they are leaving the F80 M3 out of it this time. Why? Because their reasoning is the Mercedes and Cadillac need to climb the ranks first before getting a shot at the title. Trying to apply a boxing analogy here is so idiotic it is hard to even articulate it. If Mercedes and Cadillac have not yet proven enough in their history to have their cars compared to the M3 something is seriously wrong with the people at MotorTrend. Furthermore, these are cars, not boxers. There is not some long string of challengers the ATS-V must topple for years and years before getting a shot at the M3. It is just moronic, compare the three cars. Everyone already has compared the cars including MotorTrend themselves so why do they do not throw in the M3 they already have sitting there that already was used for this purpose as it is the same damn press car they already tested? The numbers are the exact same from the comparison from last month making us think all Head 2 Head does is take the test figures the other editors get and simply adds video to them. Since we already know the results from the magazine the C63 is the fastest while the ATS-V is the best handling and the F80 M3 is the lightest. MotorTrend picks the C63 with the ATS-V coming in second and the F80 M3 comes in last place. Now to continue on how this Head 2 Head video just stinks as it adds nothing new the tester states the ATS-V is more powerful than the F80 M3. We are sick of hearing this. The M3 does not have 425 horsepower. What the hell does it take to get these journalists to do some basic research to figure this out? Just because the ATS-V is rated at 464 horsepower on paper does not make it more powerful. MotorTrend's own test results show the M3 trapping higher. The F80 M3 S55 engine is underrated. Google it, look at a dyno, do something more sophisticated than spewing the same manufacturer specs anyone can parrot back. We learn nothing new. The ATS-V drives great but has garbage interior refinement. The Mercedes-AMG is more well rounded. It is everything we already knew and MotorTrend already told us. He complains about the ATS-V transmission but somehow forgets a manual is available for it. At least complain correctly. Is there anything of merit? Well, seeing the cars on the track lapping to put them context of the track numbers we already got is nice to see. Randy Pobst is the resident MotorTrend hotshoe and he adds his impressions. He comes away impressed with the ATS-V handling and feels the C63 is more of a brute but its braking is more confidence inspiring. Here are the laptimes: Lap times: Caddy ATS-V 1:31.43 C63 1:31.52 BMW M3 1:32.51 We included the M3 because as stated we already had the M3 data. So why do they omit it when they have it as well? Would it have ruined their track overlay by including a third car when they already did include a third car originally? Ultimately they say the ATS-V is the car for performance enthusiasts as it outperforms the C63 AMG S but the thing is, it doesn't. Sure, it has the quicker laptime but they forget to mention the C63 has the faster trap speed. Enthusiasts interested in raw grunt will prefer the faster C63 with the larger V8 motor. This Head 2 Head could be a hell of a lot better. You do not learn anything new but you get video to go with the text and numbers a month later and MotorTrend generates clicks reusing content. That's automotive journalism today for you.
