    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 rotating assembly in the BMW M S65 V8 and S85 V10 motors was tested by BMW to 10k rpm. That does not mean the car will continue to make power to 10k rpm only that it is designed to withstand high rpm stress. MRF Engineering is taking a 4.2 liter S65 they built to 9000 rpm and they claim a naturally aspirated record as well. The problem is their video shows them going to 8650 rpm and they state they hit 8950 in further tuning. Furthermore, there are no dyno results to show the curve. 9k rpm on the S65 is actually nothing new. Xcede in South Africa hit 8800 rpm way back in 2010 and Evolve routinely revved out to ~8800 rpm as well. The difference is with Schrick cams widely available now building a high revving S65 V8 that makes power past 9000 rpm should be possible. That is what we are hoping to see from MRF Engineering but we will have to wait until they post a dyno proving it. <blockquote class="instagram-media" data-instgrm-version="7" style=" background:#FFF; border:0; border-radius:3px; box-shadow:0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15); margin: 1px; max-width:658px; padding:0; width:99.375%; width:-webkit-calc(100% - 2px); width:calc(100% - 2px);"><div style="padding:8px;"> <div style=" background:#F8F8F8; line-height:0; margin-top:40px; padding:50.0% 0; text-align:center; width:100%;"> <div style=" background:url(data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAACwAAAAsCAMAAAApWqozAAAABGdBTUEAALGPC/xhBQAAAAFzUkdCAK7OHOkAAAAMUExURczMzPf399fX1+bm5mzY9AMAAADiSURBVDjLvZXbEsMgCES5/P8/t9FuRVCRmU73JWlzosgSIIZURCjo/ad+EQJJB4Hv8BFt+IDpQoCx1wjOSBFhh2XssxEIYn3ulI/6MNReE07UIWJEv8UEOWDS88LY97kqyTliJKKtuYBbruAyVh5wOHiXmpi5we58Ek028czwyuQdLKPG1Bkb4NnM+VeAnfHqn1k4+GPT6uGQcvu2h2OVuIf/gWUFyy8OWEpdyZSa3aVCqpVoVvzZZ2VTnn2wU8qzVjDDetO90GSy9mVLqtgYSy231MxrY6I2gGqjrTY0L8fxCxfCBbhWrsYYAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC); display:block; height:44px; margin:0 auto -44px; position:relative; top:-22px; width:44px;"></div></div><p style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px; margin-bottom:0; margin-top:8px; overflow:hidden; padding:8px 0 7px; text-align:center; text-overflow:ellipsis; white-space:nowrap;"><a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BQTWMgaAPdE/" style=" color:#c9c8cd; font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; font-style:normal; font-weight:normal; line-height:17px; text-decoration:none;" target="_blank">A post shared by MRF Motorsport Engineering (@mrf_engineering)</a> on <time style=" font-family:Arial,sans-serif; font-size:14px; line-height:17px;" datetime="2017-02-09T19:18:04+00:00">Feb 9, 2017 at 11:18am PST</time></p></div></blockquote> <script async defer src="//platform.instagram.com/en_US/embeds.js"></script>

    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.

    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.

    This is interesting as this is not the upcoming CS variant of the M2 which is expected to have a new motor. That model will actually be a true performance edition of the M2. What we have here seems to be a cash grab by BMW and an attempt to create a bit of hype likely in order to get rid of some M2's before their values tank. What is this Performance Edition M2? Nothing special. Dealer code ZL9 gets you manually adjustable sport seats, keyless entry without comfort access, automatic climate control, and the basic audio system. No frills here. They give it M Performance parts including black kidney grilles, black side grills, M illuminated door sills, LED door projectors, the M Performance Exhaust System with titanium tips, and the M Performance coilover suspension system. The M Driver's package raises the limiter to 168. This is an M2 with M Performance parts and no unnecessary options. There are only 150, all Alpine White, and the manual is the only transmission option. Should you opt for it at the $61,695 price? No. Wait to see what the CS has in store. BMW is hoping people bite on this as they know a better M2 is on the way for 2018.

    Going 8.5 in the 1/4 mile at over 160 miles per hour is already incredibly fast. When you point out that this twin turbo Lamborghini Huracan achieves this feat on the stock engine and gearbox it becomes all the more absurd. What makes this possible? A Syvecs standalone and a pair of Precision turbochargers. Gosha TurboTech from Russia put together the turbo hardware. The car dyno's over 1000 horsepower on a Mainline hub dyno and we assume this graph is at the wheels: Obviously the power shows in the slips: You have multiple 8.5X second runs with 1.3X 60 foots at over 160 miles per hour. What is there to say? The Huracan is an incredible platform with boost. Note: These runs were done at Yas Marina: http://www.boostaddict.com/content.php?6162-The-BoostAddict-Automotive-Performance-Network-invalidates-and-will-not-recognize-any-Yas-Marina-(Abu-Dhabi-UAE)-1-4-mile-records-or-runs-from-2013-on

    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.

    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.

    Well, the Demon is definitely shaping up as a car that will be at home on the 1/4 mile dragstrip. The most recent teaser shows the car launching hard and the sidewalls wrinkling. The higher stall converter will mean higher rpm launches. Additionally, the shorter 3.09 final drive ratio (up from 2.62) means more torque multiplication. The Demon is clearly all about getting off the line. Those 315mm Nitto NT05R drag radials sure are going to come in handy.

    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!
