" This is fun, and proves the classics can be just as fast when purpose built to do one thing. I own 4 cars all made before 1978, all German, all fast, and all fun. Which car do I prefer to drive 98% of the time except on fun summer weekends. My E90 N54, why? Well, because its fast, comfortable, AND fun. Not just fast and fun. "

VargasTurboTech replied to the thread RB's or single turbo with 120k+ miles? Am I crazy?.
" Stage 1's with billet wheels will easily get you in the 400WHP with some headroom up to around 460-470WHP pushing them on pump and meth or E85, and an aggressive tune. Stage 2's on the same fuels and aggressive tune, will net you over 500WHP. So if 400WHP is your goal either one can easily and reliably get you there. As far as EGT's here are some logs a I did last night showing EGT's, Back Pressure, and shaft speed. Keep in mind this is with an over top aggressive tune, that will honestly kill most stock frames very quickly we are doing some testing at these levels to see just how long things will last, and with some different wheel combos to compare shaft speeds etc. As you can see EGT never gets to 1500 F even at peak BP these are great EGT's, part of this could be the use of E85, as we have seen upper 1600's on race gas alone. The cooling effects of E85 are very real. I have also attached the log from that pull below if interested. This was done at 85F ambient and pulling straight up hill as this is the only place I can run close to my house right now as they closed my test track down with speed bumps, we still have zero timing corrections / throttle closures, with 15.4 degrees of timing, and HPFP is rock solid with the Shotgun in place.

Develops up to 510 PS

Mercedes-Benz and AMG have released extensive details about the newly developed V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine.
Set to make its first appearance in the long-awaited AMG GT, the V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine codenamed M178 meets Euro 6 emissions standard and has a dry weight of 209 kg (461 lbs). With a displacement of 3982cc, in the AMG GT-S it will generate 510 PS (375 kW) at 6,250 rpm and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) between 1,750 and 4,750 rpm, providing 128 PS and 163.2 Nm per liter.
It benefits from an eco start/stop function to save fuel and also has a separate cooling-air flow for the exhaust gas turbochargers during high thermal load. AMG’s engineers have installed active engine mounts for improved lateral dynamics while the two-mass flywheel with centrifugal pendulum prevents torsional vibration on the drive line to smoothen the ride.
The turbochargers have a maximum charge pressure of 1.2 bar pressure and a maximum speed of 186,000 rpm. The V8 motor comes with an aluminum crankcase created using sand casting technology and also adopts a closed deck design and NANOSLIDE technology for the cylinder bore surfaces, making them twice as hard compared to regular cast-iron linings. Moreover, the engine comes with forged aluminum pistons with low-friction piston rings to further reduce oil and fuel consumption.
If we were to believe recent reports, the AMG-GT will be unveiled online on September 9, followed in early October by a public debut in Paris. Only the more powerful GT-S variant will be revealed, while the standard AMG GT is set to come out in the following months with 462 PS (340 kW). The same M178 engine will also find its way inside the C63 AMG set to be introduced early next year.

Of course the rider matters but without knowing his weight I can only go by the machines. "

luckystrike replied to the thread Spark Plug Installation How-To.
" My inch pound torque wrench doesn't go to 17 ft pound and I reduced the torque and I didn't strip out my spark plugs. All is well and I'll still use anti seize. It's not that big of a deal but yes anti seize reduces friction I just didn't cover it in my write up.

Also if you read what I wrote I only blew out the spark plug tubes when the spark plugs were in the cylinder head. Oh Lol.. My pics are out of order crap I'll fix it tonight. Yes don't blow spark plug holes when the spark plugs are out only before you remove the plugs. Good catch.

Have a good day. "
