    This certainly is going to be an interesting option considering how it is priced and the stated capability. The Stage 3 turbo kit from MM Performance Engineering retails for $3000 and is capable of 700 wheel horsepower with the proper supporting modifications. At the heart is a TD04HL-19T upgrade. The 19T compressor wheel is a billet piece with 11 blades and extended tips. To see 700+ wheel you will need fueling upgrades and to push these turbos past 30 psi of boost. BimmerBoost member @Sirdaft1 is beta testing these turbochargers but he is not going for peak horsepower on the dyno but a daily useable 500 rear wheel horsepower on 93 octane. We will see how this option pans out. MMP has the best turbo bang for your buck for your N54, TD04HL-19T with true 19T native compressor housing. These turbos are capable of 700whp+ on the N54 and at just $3000 its a bargain and they bolt right up to your N54. The 19T compressor wheel is a forged billet wheel with extended tip technology from BorgWarner and with 11 blades made in the GTX style. The Turbo consist of a TD04 bearing housing modified to connect to stock oil lines, coolant lines and stock turbine housing. The turbine housing has been modified to accept the TD04HL turbine and flange up to the TD04 bearing housing. The kit requires upgraded inlet pipe system and also intercooler charge pipe system optimized for the high flowing native 19T compressor housing which is over twice the size/flow of stock compressor housing. This will make sure the turbos are flowing to their maximum potential along with the upgraded plumbing for the turbo.

    The other day BoostAddict posted an article regarding Weistec's legal action against Dime Research and Development or Dime Consulting. Clearly those involved with Dime realize the walls are closing in so what are they doing in the meantime while the courts play this out? BS'ing people on forums and trying to do as much damage to Weistec as possible. It's a very simple recipe and it happens more often than you think. Simply offer someone some parts for a discount or free in exchange for posting a thread including a positive review while bashing a competitor. It happens all the time. MHP was the best at this. The owner even asked me directly to create fake accounts for him on other forums so he could do this. When a ship is sinking which in this case it is a company it takes cash to stay afloat or keep the doors open. When HPF (Horsepower Freaks) was in a similar position the owner would go on the forums and post videos of how his shop was filled with cars hoping to instill confidence in potential customers. It's easy to see through the BS though if you have enough experience or have been on the forums long enough. In this instance, it was way too easy: This 'Guilty' fellow posts a graph claiming it is a C63 M177, bashes Weistec, and says how great his tune is. That tune curve looks pretty familiar though, doesn't it? Very similar but not the exact figures yet clearly an AMG GT M178 graph and not a C63 M177 graph. If it was the exact same graph as the graph Weistec advertises with that would be too obvious even to your typical forum moron. Maybe they took another run file or just changed a correction factor? If we had the actual bevvy of dyno run files from the Dynojet software testing we could prove this. Oh, it just so happens we do: That would be runfile 88 from Weistec's ECU tuning. Exact same baseline and the exact same after the tune numbers. Because it's the exact same files. This poor schmuck is either a Dime schill or he believes that is the runfile for his car. Either way the guys reading on forums just assume this is the truth and that they can get the same results as Weistec for less money. If the software is stolen and no development work took place, yep, it's possible to offer a lower price. For those who would like to verify for themselves, here are the Dynojet run files: RunFile_002_stock.drf RunFile_088_Testing.drf As stated, it's a simple recipe. Post a graph, have a few fake accounts chime in where the administration doesn't care because it's too big to care, and you get the desired result which is herding the sheep in the direction you want them to go. Now tell me, who would you trust? The company facing litigation from multiple parties with people involved accused of stealing millions and potentially funneling money overseas that advertises software they did not even develop or BenzBoost? Hmm: It seems not everyone is so easily swayed:

    Congratulations to Autowerks Automotive in Australia who showed it is indeed possible to run 9's on the stock M156 engine internals. We knew this would be coming as just earlier this year an Australian C63 with the Weistec Stage III setup ran 10.1 @ 139. The difference here is better conditions and custom tuning by Autowerks Automotive. Full specs: Weistec Stage 3 Built transmission 60mm pulley Race fuel ( 17 inch slicks Hoosier Skinny fronts Stock M156 internals 655 rear wheel horsepower Exhaust cut out's Weight reduction including removed back seats This is a P31 package car which means stronger engine internals borrowed from the SLS M159. Congratulations to all involved and on the quickest stock internal C63 in the world.

    Many of you have on various platforms noticed the Cobb Accesstuner Race (ATR) Software no longer is available for download. Cobb is busy updating the ATR software and it was supposed to be out in June but it looks like we will be seeing it at some point this quarter. What is the difference? One major difference is that while the software is still free to download users will be required to attend an online course they they pay for. They will then have to pass a third party evaluation to use the software. Why is this? We do not know for sure but it may have something to do with preventing people thinking they know how to tune from grenading their engines as well as emissions training. We will have to wait and find out what the course entails. More details from Cobb below. We recognize that the Accesstuner Race software has been a big part of what makes COBB Accessport tuning solutions so powerful and user friendly for the communities we support. Many have come to rely on this software to help them make small changes to COBB Off The Shelf map files to customize features like launch control, flat foot shifting, or to adjust MAF scaling. Our goal is to continue to offer this type of customization software to our end user community. After evaluating key industry trends and changes in the regulatory environment, we identified the need to update the software and provide expanded training for its use. So, in May of this year we removed the ability to download new copies of Accesstuner Race from our web site, indicated that changes were being made to the software, and it would be available again by the end of June. With that time now here, we want to provide you with an update on the progress of this project. An updated version of Accesstuner will return in the near future, be fully featured, and will continue to be offered for free to COBB Accessport customers. Because this is a powerful piece of software, we have decided that in order to fulfill our mission of delivering responsible and safe tuning solutions, we will require that end users attend a paid online training course and pass an evaluation through a third party educator in order to have access to download this free software (Accesstuner). As you can imagine, implementing these changes and setting up the online training and evaluation process takes time and involves lots of different groups both internal and external to COBB. We’ve been hard at work updating this software while creating a curriculum and bank of test questions to ensure that those who complete the course are able to safely and responsibly utilize this software. Because of the size and complexity of this project, it is taking us longer than we originally projected to complete the launch of Accesstuner and our training program. Our current timeline is for the Accesstuner software and training program to be ready for launch in the third quarter of this year. Once we are a little closer to an actual release date we will provide you with more information about the training process required for an end-user to acquire and use our Accesstuner software. We apologize that this launch has taken longer than we expected, but please know that we are very focused on getting this project completed. In the meantime, if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. We appreciate your support and your patience while we make these changes.

    It is easy to make a car look good in computer renderings. That is what we have here. Sure, the M2 looks great with the molded flared fenders, carbon lip, carbon diffuser, carbon spoiler, and other pieces. Where is the real thing though? We have not heard of PSM Dynamics so they seem to be new to the scene. That does not mean they can not deliver but some websites are treating these renderings like a finished product. The fender work if it looks like the renderings is much better than the riveted and unfinished looking Liberty Walk style kits that have been infesting the German widebody market. Let's hope PSM Dynamics delivers. This would make for a far more aggressive M2.

    The Competition Package for the BMW F82 M4 and BMW F80 M3 sharpens the car with new suspensions pieces, a new differential, new 20 inch wheels, and new tires. It also increases S55 engine output to 444 horsepower which is just achieved through software tuning. It is worth the $5500 asking price for the suspension, differential, and wheels alone. We all know you can get greater engine gains from aftermarket tuning for less money. Still, the car is supposed to be faster than the standard M4. Look at the results of German magazine testing from Autobild and Sport Auto: WTFBBQ? The elasticity is worse somehow. The standard car in Sport Auto testing shows an advantage to 100 kph and 200 kph. Only in the 0-200 kph sprint by Auto Bild does the M4 Competition Package show an advantage. What is going on here? If we were to guess the new larger wheels are slowing things down a bit and also making traction off the line more difficult. It is likely that warmer weather contributed to the results as well. In equal conditions with equal traction there is no way the Competition Package should be slower. We will just have to wait for numbers from US magazines to prove this.

    Color us a bit skeptical here as the gains are huge. The dyno was done at Cobb Socal though and Cobb certainly is reputable but what role they played in these dyno runs and how IPD is marketing them is unknown. Gains of 70 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels at 4300 rpm from a plenum and Y-pipe? From the looks of these dynos (and why the hell are the graphs so small? Seriously, what's the point of providing graphs people can't even read?) the gains all come in the mid-range with the plenum and Y-Pipe. Let's look at the plenum alone: There is a jump of 55 lb-ft of torque at 4300 rpm which fades quickly. You see an increase for a few hundred RPM. Now, that's good if true but hardly broad. Now look at the plenum with the Y-pipe: 70 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels over stock at 4300 rpm. You see gains basically from 3800-5200. The Y-pipe does provide a slightly better curve but it's really just that mid-section where the majority of the gains come from. Is it a Porsche intake defect? What is the explanation here? We definitely want to see independent testing that verifies these claims. Not to mention, graphs that are readable. IPD took delivery of its 991.2 Turbo S and the R & D started the second it arrived at its new home. The new Turbo doesn’t substantially benefit from any one particular upgrade, but the sum of its improvements deliver a superior overall Turbo compared to the already impressive 991.1 Turbo it replaces. Yes, we know the latest Turbo is faster with 20 more horsepower but it’s the combination of lightening shifts, razor sharp handling and spiritual connection to the vehicle that elevates the driving experience of the extraordinary new 991.2 Turbo. Porsche made a number of substantial upgrades with the latest 991.2 Turbo. Engine improvements include revised intake ports, larger injectors, higher volume fuel pump, larger turbo compressor wheels and more efficient intercoolers, but the factory intake system remained relatively unchanged allowing the IPD Plenum and Y-Pipe to fit with only minor modifications. The 991.2 Turbo Plenum upgrade delivers staggering engine power and torque gains that will raise the performance bar of the already potent supercar as well as the hairs on your neck. Horsepower gains are found throughout the entire power band with the bulk of the gains being realized between the 3500-5000 RPM range. Max power gains of 45+ wheel HP come in at 4300 RPM and hold strong all the way to redline. Torque is even more impressive at 60+ in the midrange with a massive torque gains from 3500-5000 RPM.

    Here we go again. In case you forgot BMW previously supplied Jaguar/Land Rover with a V8. Specifically the naturally aspirated M62 V8 for the 2002-2005 Range Rover. Jaguar and Land Rover developed their AJ133 5.0 liter direct injected V8 architecture after this. Keep in mind BMW owned the Rover Group for six years selling their majority stake in 2000 but continuing to supply transmissions, electronics, and motors. BMW still holds a stake today. Now, this is pretty good news for everyone. Jaguar and Land Rover will finally get a more modern architecture with turbos as their supercharged V8 quite simply is overmatched by their German turbo V8 competition. The N63TU and S63TU aftermarket will expand which is good for tuners and good for BimmerBoost with Jaguar fans no doubt looking into tuning. This is all very early and we will have to see what models get the engine. BMW is updating the S63TU for the next generation M5. It's possible Jaguar will receive this variant. This certainly is cheaper than Jaguar/Land Rover developing a new turbo V8 and BMW's motor is proven. Source

    The Golf R has some real competition in the United States and it is from Ford no less. Unfortunately, the Focus RS was not sold in the USA previously and but the European got to enjoy it. Well, now in the USA you can buy a Focus RS or a Golf R and it's time to see which one rules. The Focus RS already beat out the world's best hot hatches in a huge comparison test earlier this year. It is not the fastest in a straight line but it is the quickest around the track and the best all around hatchback. What the Golf R really has going for it compared to the Focus RS is the DSG gearbox option. The Golf R has the smaller 2.0 liter engine compared to the Ecoboost 2.3 liter motor and it is down roughly 50 horses. However, the Golf R in this video is not a DSG car. Can the 6-speed Golf R make up for the power deficit thanks to weighing less? No. However, the Golf R keeps up quite well and in the higher gears seems to mitigate the pull of the Focus RS. A DSG Golf R might be quicker than the Focus RS. As this is Evo no trap speeds are provided which partially defeats the purpose of a drag race. Regardless, the Focus RS is not only more powerful and the quicker car it is also the better driver's car. It's just simply the better enthusiast choice.

    The more supercharger options the merrier, right? This one is coming to market pretty late and was being 'wrapped up' back in 2014. Better late than never is the motto here. It looks like the kit underwent a revision from a TVS blower to a twin screw and now utilizes a 2.9 liter blower. This is the only real competition to the Weistec Stage III whipple twin screw setup and one would guess the same exact blower. It does undercut Weistec a bit but nobody on BenzBoost we know of is running it and there are not any 1/4 mile results to go by whereas Weistec has them from all over the world for years now and holds all the platform records. This is the dyno graph ESS posted: A nice increase over stock but where is the torque curve? Also, this is quite a bit less power than the Weistec Stage 3 setup which tops 600 wheel horsepower on 91 octane pump fuel. We'll have to wait and see how the ESS option pans out but it certainly is priced aggressively. -6PSI Boost -2.9L Whipple SC unit -Large capacity intercooler system -Perfectly matched ESS ECU software delivered through included E-Flash cable +150WHP on PP cars, + 180WHP on base C63.

    Some fun runs here showing a stock turbo E90 335i going up against a pair of second generation LSA CTS-V's with unknown mods. The camera car also runs a stock 2nd gen CTS-V as well as a VVT Stage 1 upgraded E90 335i N54. Here are the specs on the camera car: 2010 Black Sapphire Metallic E90 335i - 435/499 FBO, JB4/MHD, 21psi stock turbos/inlets, E60 Fuel STG 2 LPFP, 3340lbs How does it do? Well, it gets pulled hard by the two modded CTS-V's. The torque difference is very apparent when they go from a stop. Simply too much to overcome on the stock turbochargers. Against a stock 2nd gen CTS-V though the E90 335i makes easy work of it showing just how much faster the modded Cadillac's are. The final run is against an E90 335i with full bolt ons, anti-lag, inlets, VVT Stage 1 turbochargers, and E60 fuel. The E90 camera car makes easy work of it.

    These cars are definitely in the same class and it is a comparison we all want to see. AutoExpress is not exactly known for high quality but they do a decent job covering the differences between the cars. Most importantly that the 570S is the lightest and rear wheel drive. The 911 Turbo S and Audi R8 of course are all wheel drive. The R8 is stated to have the most horsepower but if you look at dyno results the Mclaren 570S is underrated. Not to mention it has more torque than the R8 thanks to turbochargers. The Porsche 911 Turbo S of course is also turbocharged and also has more torque than the R8. The problem with this comparison is the same problem that plagues many British comparisons. It's damp out on the track and this is a tight course meaning traction will be at a premium. The 570S is wearing soft rubber meaning cold and damp conditions are not in its favor especially with rear wheel drive traction. Despite the adverse conditions the McLaren 570S laps the quickest and sets a new course record. Lap Times: 570S - 42.710 911 Turbo S - 42.950 R8 V10 Plus - 43.680 The gap would likely be larger on a longer course in better conditions. Also, it will likely take a Huracan Superleggera to take on the 570S especially considering the Audi 5.2 liter V10 is outmuscled in this company. All three are spectacular cars no matter what the laptimes say.

The final run is against an E90 335i with full bolt ons, anti-lag, inlets, VVT Stage 1 turbochargers, and E60 fuel. The E90 camera car makes easy work of it.

    The upcoming 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is the baddest truck on the planet. Unless you have been living under a rock you know the Raptor's 6.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 is being replaced with a high output 3.5 liter Ecoboost which shares similarities with the Ford GT variant. Over 450 horsepower is expected and it is sent to all four wheels through a 10-speed automatic transmission. The Raptor is not designed to be a dragster but to kick ass off-road with various terrain modes and heavy duty suspension components: Starting at $48,325 this is not a cheap truck but you certainly do get what you pay for. We can't wait to see it in action.
