    This race is simply a beatdown. To those that know the cars it should not be all that surprising. Both cars feature tunes from PP-Performance. The C63 AMG Black Series M156 engine is already in a high state of tune from the factory. As the 6.2 liter M156 engine is naturally aspirated and tuned aggressively by AMG there is not much room to gain power on the car. Certainly not as much room to gain with a tune as there is with the turbocharged M4. The cars put out very similar wheel horsepower figures in stock form as the C63 AMG Black Series shows ~430 wheel horsepower on a Dynojet. With a tune this can approach the 460 wheel horsepower range depending on how aggressive the timing is and the fuel quality. The stock torque figure is roughly ~405 lb-ft of torque at the wheels whereas the S55 in the M3/M4 shows 429 lb-ft of wheel torque stock. Once tuned, even with a modest tune, the M4 exceeds the C63 Black Series. Horsepower rises to over 479 at the wheels and torque at the wheels goes to 484 lb-ft. Combine the power and torque advantage with a quicker shifting dual clutch transmission and the M4's roughly 400 pound lighter curb weight and you get the result you see here. Not to mention the C63 AMG Black Series aerodynamics also create more drag. The M4 continues to pull impressively to 175 miles per hour and the C63 AMG Black Series is too far back to even be seen. AMG fans will no doubt be quick to point out that if you boost the C63 AMG Black Series things change in the other direction.

    Two turbocharged all wheel drive german luxury performance sedans going at it here. The Audi RS7 offers 560 horsepower stock from a 4.0 liter twin turbo V8. The Porsche Panamera Turbo has a larger 4.8 liter V8 that is also twin turbocharged but it is less powerful rated at 520 horsepower. Porsche offers an optional power kit for roughly $20k that boosts the output into the 540 horsepower range thanks to upgraded turbochargers and more aggressive tuning. The Porsche Panamera Turbo uses a PDK dual clutch transmission whereas the RS7 uses a more traditional automatic. The weight between the two is a wash in the 44XX range. We have already seen the RS7 beat the Panamera Turbo decisively in a straight line but does the power kit change the outcome? No, the RS7 is still faster. Even if the more powerful Panamera Turbo S with its 570 horsepower were put in place of this Panamer Turbo the RS7 still looks like it is too strong to overcome. The RS7 despite its smaller motor and lack of a dual clutch transmission simply is the stronger car especially considering just an ECU tune gets it into the 10's in the ~130 trap speed range. The RS7 is a beast.

    I've always thought it was ridiculous that we can't import cars unless they are 25 years or older. The number of people importing is insignificant in the grand scheme of things, so I don't buy the safety/environment arguments. The petition needs 44,000 more signatures by September 5 - let's see how many we can get from BimmerBoost so I can import my beloved 1998 Fiat Multipla. :facepalm :crazy: -Rich

    With the new turbocharged V8 era one issue the heavy AMG sedans face is heat soak. This is especially prevalent after multiple WOT (wide open throttle) runs and exacerbated by high summer temps or warm climates. To prevent heat soak which will cause a loss of power cooling upgrades are necessary. This is especially true on modified cars which of course will generate even more heat and likely be driven aggressively. AMS has a solution with their boost cooler system to maintain optimum performance. The system drops temps by almost 60 degrees according to AMS testing which is a very large temperature drop. Further details on the $2695.00 system (available for pre-facelift E63 and CLS63 RWD models) including what it contains as well as design choices below in the words of AMS: The Alpha Performance E63 (W212) 5.5L Bi Turbo Boost Cooler System is a great addition to your M157 equipped AMG whether your car is stock or modified. The cooling system features a large, high efficiency heat exchanger located at the front of the car, a reservoir that holds over a gallon of coolant in the passenger front fender well and a high flow brushless pump which runs complementary to the factory pump. Whether you live in a hot climate area, enjoy long spirited drives in the mountains or long high speed pulls on airstrips, the M157 Boost Cooler will keep your intake temps low and maintain your AMG’s maximum output no matter the ambient conditions. As with all Alpha Products, everything needed to install the system is included – bolts, fittings, lines etc. Best of all, no drilling on the car is required. Hard ‘Core’ The most important part of an efficient heat exchanger system is the core, skimping here could mean the overall performance of an ‘upgraded’ system might be worse than stock! Our Alpha core is a high quality, made in the UK, double pass design where the coolant makes two passes through the unit vs competing products which use a single pass design. Our unit works with the factory heat exchanger giving you a significant boost in cooling power. Innovative Reservoir Means Zero Lost Trunk Space! The hand fabricated Alpha reservoir acts as a large heat sink to keep coolant temperatures low and stable. With over a gallon of additional coolant on board, it increases the cycle time allowing it to dissipate more heat before being recirculated, working as a large thermal reservoir, keeping the horsepower-killing heat soak at bay. With its trick mounting location in the passenger fender well, you don’t have to worry about running lines to the rear of the car, drilling holes in your trunk's floorboard, or giving up valuable trunk space! Pumped up! To give you the best possible performance and keep the coolant flowing efficiently through the heat exchangers, we added an additional high flow pump to run in conjunction with the OEM pump. The combination of the two pumps allow a high flow rate to keep the fluid moving and maintains that flow rate at higher pressures giving you the assurance your car will stay cool in hot climates or on those top speed pulls. Exclusive Benefits: Unique Fender Mounted Reservoir Unlike Competing Designs, No Drilling or Cutting of Body Panels Required Short Line Routing Works with both Distronic and Non-Distronic Vehicles OEM Fit and Finish System Includes: Hand Fabricated Reservoir High Efficiency Double Pass Heat Exchanger High Flow Brushless Coolant Pump 4 ply Heavy Duty Silicone Hose High Pressure Coolant Line Distronic Bracket (Optional) CLS 63 Adapter (Optional) Pump Control w/Harness All Clamps, Fittings, Bolts, Brackets and Hardware Applications: 2012-2013 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Non-4Matic (W212) Special Product Notes: Some early M157 5.5L Bi Turbo models came with a non-divorced cooling system, our system requires the system be divorced. If you have an early model that does not have a coolant reservoir under the engine cover (see image in More Images tab) you will need to add the divorce kit from the options menu. Our divorce kit uses OEM Mercedes-Benz parts.

    A Volkswagen Golf R going up against a tuned F13 M6? Sounds like a mismatch and normally it would be if this particular Golf R did not the have the HGP 3.6 liter VR6 turbo package. HGP Golfs have shown great results against stout opposition such as a Ferrari 458 Speciale, tuned Nissan GTR, and an Evo X with a turbo upgrade. The first race in the video has the M6 and HGP Golf square off and the Golf beats the M6. It is important to note the Golf R has all wheel drive traction which really helps it as the 1/4 mile elapsed time of 10.672 for the Golf R versus 11.910 for the M6 shows. The Golf also beats the M6 to the kilometer marker getting there in 19.366 seconds whereas the M6 takes 20.770 seconds. The M6 is pulling harder at the kilometer marker by 2.5 miles per hour. The next run has the HGP Golf go up against a stock Lamborghini LP560 Gallardo. Power is on the side of the Golf with its roughly 700 horses. The Gallardo gets a nice jump off the line but the Golf has no trouble running it down and passing it. The HGP Golf R is much quicker than the LP560 out trapping it by almost 20 KPH in the standing kilometer which is certainly impressive. A Golf clowning a Gallardo? Yep. The final run is the HGP Golf versus a Gorilla Racing Stage 3 CLS63 with a claimed output of 840 horsepower. The CLS63 AMG should take the run based on that output figure but struggles with the Golf which beats it badly off the line. The CLS63 AMG can not make up the gap and is beaten soundly although it is pulling just under 6 KPH harder by the kilometer marker. From a roll the CLS63 AMG would win but if it can not run down the Golf in over a half mile, well, that shows just how impressive the HGP Golf is. The HGP Golf R beats all three cars it goes up against and although it does not have the outright fastest trap speed it has plenty of power and is able to put its power to the ground. Sometimes that is more important than peak horsepower figures.

    I am pretty sure someone posted this question already, but I am limited with internet right now. I have a 2007 335i E92 lowered on ST coils with VMR VB3 19x9.5 et 33. I had my friend install the wheels on my car, and he told it did not clear the strut, so he used a spare 15mm spacers. It cleared, but I think it pokes out to much from the fender. So my question is, what is the minimum size spacer i should run on my set up to clear the strut?

    http://s3.postimg.org/eaeai4njn/image.jpg GAD Motors is the first to explore deep with the AMG's specially in the M157 motor with there world first turbo upgrade back two years ago & still they are showing us more & more of there improvements. Here is GAD Motors showing us a extreme amazing record of 100-200km in just 4.3sec. There isn't any description or informations about this setup which comes from a Instagram photo only, it's mentioned that's a E63 S Model that recorder the 4.3sec 100-200km. So if renntech E63 S Model turbo upgrade which is build for vasily1 a guy in Russia which lately send us he's E63 SModle against the Lamborgini Huracan. His E63 is 850hp@crank & the is capable of 5.5sec in the 100-200km ! So how come can GAD kick the 5sec 100-200km easily like that ! Is it a engine modification such as better internals or a camshafts or can we say that's a heavy modification a turbo with its manifold & external wastgeat ??

    Selling my COBB AP. I bought it last year for $986, and (right or wrong) I'm moving on from an 08 535xi to a VW Mk7 Golf R. It's literally the most dramatic night and day mod I've ever done to any vehicle period. Literally within 2 minutes you see a dramatic difference in HP and torque.
