    This car belongs to BimmerBoost vendor @fastgti69 who of course is using his own VM (Ventura Motorsports) N54 single turbocharger kit on his 6-speed manual E90 335i. He recently got it out on the dyno with Terry of Burger Motorsports to do some fine tuning. The result is over 800 wheel horsepower and 834 horsepower and 720 lb-ft of torque at the wheels to be exact. The thing is, they are not done here. There is more in this car. The N54 horsepower record still stands at 861 rear wheel horsepower but as we have more N54's pushing deep into the 800's along with further tuning revisions for these high horsepower cars we should start seeing records fall. Further details below from @Terry@BMS: Hey guys, Spent some time on the dyno today with Payam@VM's car. Main purpose of testing was to evaluate the new JB4 single turbo O2 sensor calibration and JB4 port injection control. In doing that it appears we also upped the official bar a bit for single turbo N54 power. Notes: 1) This big turbo really sings at 35psi. It's starting to get to the point that we need to add 4bar and 5bar MAP sensor support to the JB4. It's on my radar. 2) Car has a major issue dropping timing in cyl4. We have no idea why. 3) The JB4 o2 sensor control is working very well. It's amazing how lean we were running previously without really giving it much thought. The second dyno file is a comparison to his testing a couple months ago. AFR was creeping up to the mid 13s. If you're running a single turbo and not using the latest JB4 o2 sensor control firmware, your AFR is much leaner than you think it is. 4) The JB4 port injection control is working perfectly as well. It's convenient being able to datalog and change it from the same JB4 interface and it's nice that it finally self corrects for low fuel pressure. Much more planned for this. 5) Given the AFRs are accurate now we're using *a lot* more fuel than we did previously. Maintaining low pressure on E80 (as read via JB4 flex fuel sensor) has become an issue again. Been funneling data to Fuel-IT who has some new stuff in the works. 6) I heart JB4 anti-lag.

    Congratulations to BimmerBoost member sA x sKy who put down some eye opening numbers with his DCT F82 BMW M4. He managed to crack the 700 wheel horsepower barrier with his BMS JB4 tuned car which is upgraded with the Pure Turbos Stage 2 S55 turbochargers. @sA x sKy has upgraded Dodson clutches which is the way to go for BMW DCT upgrades. Noting this is a DCT car is important as it is currently the highest horsepower DCT F80 M3 or F82 M4. The 708 wheel horsepower Pure Turbos Stage 2 upgraded F82 M4 we saw a few months back has a manual transmission. Great numbers here and further details from @sA x sKy below. We also look forward to seeing more timeslips from this car. So two different people told me to make a new thread for this.. so I hope you don't mind Sticky :D So my car was finally fixed today for a timing chain issue (second time..) and we wasted NO TIME whatsoever going to the dyno since street tuning was out of the question b/c of the weather outside. Literally we retimed the engine, put on the carbon fiber brace/strut brace on, turned on the car for 10 seconds.. and said fuck it let's go dyno. With the help of Jesse@PURE and Terry@BMS, I did 5 runs. 640whp, 658 whp, 660 who, 679 whp, and 704 whp! Had I had time for one more run I could have taken the dyno record but I'm content with this for now. We were building boost slowly up first but because the 5th run was the final run of the day, we said fuck it and went straight to an 85 meth additive for the 704! NO CODES. NO DTM. NO LIMP. The car ran amazing those 5 runs. 100% meth with 5 gallons of MS109 Thanks to Petrolwerks for building this awesome machine! And thank you Jesse@PURE, Jason@TPG, Terry@BMS, Mo@ACM, and T0ny32 for all the help along the way. Seriously, this project wouldn't have been possible had it not been for the combined efforts. Atco track rental is on Wednesday to hopefully break another record! I ran a 11.17@126 (maybe 127 I don't remember) with M/T ET Streets II. I have upgraded Driveshaft Shop axles this time so not worried about going full boost on this thing off the line. Objective is a 10.5@XXX. This is the highest whp F8X DCT in the world as of right now, and second highest whp overall. Can't thank Jesse@PURE and Terry@BMS enough for the personal touch for this car.

    Hey guys, i just want to start of with how horrible of an experience this has been. I chose VTT back in October 2014 because he wasn't so well known at the point and i figured that since he was putting out all these turbos that he would be great to work with. Little did i know that i would be going through two sets of turbos 13 months later....:facepalm Here goes from the beginning. October 2014 - FBO N54, 84k miles driving strong. OEM turbos give out. October 2014 - Turbos arrive on time and installed. Pull strong for almost a year straight and 11k miles. September 14 2015. One day, BOOM. Compressor wheel chipped and now is all bent up. HORRIBLE shaft play. Uninstall, send to Tony. Promised 2 week turn around time for Stage 2 rebuild OR option of Stage 2+ to compensate and was told 3 weeks. Well.... 3 weeks you say hmm? screw it, one week extra of down time for more power?! ill do it! September 18 2015 Turbos received. September 22,2015 Finally able to open turbo and confirm he received them. Opens them up and claims the turbos were deprived of oil.....but they worked for 11k miles and literally a year. My mechanic stated that he highly suggested a piston inside was installed incorrectly causing the compressor shaft to get funky and shear it self. This is where he says 3 weeks from this date is when i will get my Stage 2 + turbos. Remember that detail....Stage 2+ for 3 weeks.... September 24,2015 Email'd tony to confirm, Me:"We are still at a 3 week wait for the Stage 2+ upgrade right?" Tony: " Looking at the workload 3 weeks seems accurate. If anything changes i will let you know." SWEEET..... October 9, 2015 Emailed tony just to make sure we are still going on time. Tony : "We are getting these out to you next week. you have my word." October 15, 2015 Emailed again. he states "Im actually working on your turbo right now. These should be out by tomorrow".....the 16th right? nope.... October 16, 2015 - The day that they were promised to go out. Received email from tony. "I just wanted to make sure we were on the same page. i dont remember what we agreed upon. Did we agree stage 2 rebuild or stage 2+ upgrade? Let me know so i can get started, Just know that im low on stage 2+ housing and it will be a FEW MONTHS before i can get them to you. ." I told him i wanted stage 2+ still and you stated it would be 3 weeks not a FEW MONTHS.... October 19, 2015 Emailed received again. tony states " I understand what was said but i have a list of people waiting for their stage 2+ And it would be unfair for me to let you budge in line".... ok i under stand that but wouldnt that have been nice to know that 3 weeks ago? October 22,2015 I finally caved in and said screw this. i need my car back and if its so much easier just to get my regular ordered stage 2's then lets go. November 2, 2015 FINALLY received a email with shipping confirmation.....but we are already 7 weeks past the promise date... told me stage 2's would be 2 weeks.... nope that took 9 weeks. Told me stage 2+ would be 3 weeks...nope now that would be a few months. November 22,2015 300 miles later, Bank 1 turbo is now leaking oil. Contacted Tony stating how tired i am of this, i want a full refund of this since this is going now be my THIRD turbo from him...... contacts me back and here is his reply word for word. I can attached screen shots if you dont believe me. " Kien, Honestly while i am bummed you you have another issue. Im going to say its something going on with your car. What i have no idea. We are not RB, we do not have machining issues, billet wheel problems, none of the above , any issues we had are WELL in the past. We build turbos that perform, and flat out last, period. I honestly cannot even recall the last set of stage 2's we had a report of smoking in the past year, except yours. So if your car is smoking again, its not the turbos, something else is going on. I would never blame something as silly as inlets, etc etc. I cannot say what is going on, but i can assure you its not the turbos, at this point, unless there was an install error etc, that caused oil starvation, or another issue such as something getting sucked into the turbo. With that said we cannot offer you full refund, we are not doing a recall, you an the exception, not the rule. If this was common place, then yes we would have to step up, and offer refunds, but it is not. I can offer you a 50% refund, minus Paypal fees, core, and shipping or another set. There are many questions that need to be answered, how often was the oil changed through its life, etc etc. My own personal car, had a chronic smoking problem, guess what when i swapped the motor out with the same turbos on it, the smoke went away. Same turbos, different motors, no smoke. Go figure. As far as the rattle, come on man. It has been gone over and over and over and over. THERE IS NO 100% RATTLE FIX. We put brand new robust parts on there, they eliminate 90% of peoples rattle, but if you have your tune set up so when gates are not closed the flapper sits just off the house, it WILL rattle period. All that needs to be done is adjust the WG position with the tune, and it goes way. Let me know what you want to do out of the teo options above. Tony" Alright..... well im not settling for 50% refund when these turbos are not performing as they should. i have contacted my credit card company and will be filing a dispute. Current car symptoms: - NO white smoke on cold start. - White bluish smoke when warmed up driving and coming to a stop. Idles and smoke comes out, when accelerating smoke comes out. - heavy burnt oil smell -turbo seal? took plastic trays off under car. Oil is seeping and dripping from turbo. No VCG leak, no PCV problems, No OFHG leaks.... Looked at bank 1 turbo, turned on car to idle and watched oil slowly seep from the bracket that holds the housing together.......not turbos you say tony? you either have a bad turbo seal here or a bad CHRA..... Oil is leaking from the bracket here in the yellow circle. You can see here, after wiping it down a little, the yellow circles show where the oil is coming out of. I have already confirmed that it is not coming out of the feed/return oil line. Most recent Log. Log before VTT stage 2 died. Please be cautious guys.... im now stuck with a broken car again and fighting to get a refund because i have already paid twice $1200 to uninstall and a THIRD time... If anyone can help me out some how please do.

    What a steaming pile of dogshit this is. Introducing the worst BMW F82 M4 on planet earth. LT Motorwerks, LB Performance, and Crzy Engineering can all take a bow for this pile of garbage. This is what you get when people who should be modifying Hondas for teenangers set their sights on a BMW. Recognize the name Crzy Engineering? You probably do not. The last time their name came up on BimmerBoost they were proclaiming a rear mount E9X M3 S65 V8 turbo kit option. Unsurprisingly, nothing ever came of it. Who knows what they did to this poor M4's motor. LB Performance needs no introduction as their riveted widebody kits that look tacked on are well known at this point for all the wrong reasons. It is no surprise LT Motorwerks is involved with this 'project' if you even want to call it that. You could tell from the panel gaps alone. This is the same LT Motorwerks responsible for this abomination that just needs to be seen to be believed. It seems they just want to keep destroying and ricing out German cars. How do these people continue to get business? #LAAS2015

    $132,200 for the new 2016 BMW F82 M4 GTS? The standard M4 starts at $65,400. That means the GTS is just over twice the price of the standard M4. The M4 GTS is going to be rare and offers a very impressive Nurburgring laptime (which BMW has yet to prove or backup) but it is not worth double the price of an M4. The horsepower and torque are bumped but they are bumped through software. That means any M4 owner today can have the same output of the M4 GTS through the aftermarket (and then some) for a fraction of the cost. The GTS is lighter due to the rear seats being pulled and the carbon fiber pieces. These weight saving measures add up to around 200 pounds but we have to see independent weight test numbers. If a current M4 owner wants to ditch weight off their car they have options that will not cost them another $65k. What about the suspension and aerodynamics? These parts can also be sourced in the aftermarket. For someone to pay $134,200 for an M4 GTS if seeking a track car when the Viper ACR exists for almost $20k less they must really, really, really, love BMW and have money to burn. To BimmerBoost, the M4 GTS is not worth the money for what amounts to a standard M4 on steroids. Especially considering it features the exact same turbo engine and anyone can add a solid water/meth injection system to their M3/M4 today for under a grand. With the E92 M3 GTS one could not just take their S65 V8 from 4.0 liters to 4.4 liter as easily as it is to bump power output and add water injection to the M4. Despite the ludicrous pricing we certainly are glad BMW built this car and is selling it in the United States so BMW performance enthusiasts finally have something to at least cheer for in performance comparisons. #LAAS2015

    I'm used to finding great vendors and having great service from people here on the forums. In that vein, I'd like to give a shout out to fastgti69, for his great help and up to date responses on my order. I talked with him about some parts for my S55, he gave me an accurate deadline, notified me about each step, and was very helpful with everything. Hard to find that kind of service now. Have to say one of the best experiences I've ever had buying something from a forum. I didn't even have to order online, I told him what I wanted, he told me when they'd be in stock, sent me an invoice, and he emailed me telling me they'd ship tomorrow. Great contact! :)

    Pictures do not do it justice. Audi's Press Release on the second generation R8 was well done with great photos but you just have to see the car in person to really understand how it is distinguishes itself from the previous generation R8 model. The new grille, headlights, rear lights, air intakes, etc., all combine to make the second generation R8 much more flattering. The proportions somehow seem more muscular and less awkward. The second gen car is just basically a reskinned Lamborghini Huracan with both cars sharing the same basic chassis, dual clutch transmission, and 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V10 engine. The R8 V10 Plus model you are looking at essentially matches the Lamborghini Huracan with 610 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque. The R8 is no longer neutered to the degree it was with the previous generation versus its Lamborghini sibling. What we want to know is when the R8 will be getting an entry level model soon to replace the defunct 4.2 FSI V8 model but boosted from the factory as reports hint at. For now, Audi is mum on the topic and the V10 engine remains the only option in the range. #LAAS2015
