  1. Makes perfect sense.

    Makes perfect sense.
  2. Thanks for the reply; was always curious about...

    Thanks for the reply; was always curious about E85 with NA cars. I always thought that E85 had a lower power density than "pure gasoline", so never understood why people tuned for E85 for a NA...
  3. E71 X6: Ha! Holy $#@!. That's insane! How can it be that...

    Ha! Holy $#@!. That's insane! How can it be that easy?

    To reverse engineer that had to take some work; there had to be some "inside" help.
  4. Nice run - that car sounds mean! Anyone know...

    Nice run - that car sounds mean!

    Anyone know how much more power you get with an E85 tune vs. a 93 octane tune with the same mods?
  5. G30/F90: It's a beautiful car (am partial to estoril...

    It's a beautiful car (am partial to estoril blue), but am a bit disappointed with them choosing AWD over RWD and going with an autotragic transmission. DCT is superior in all ways... They should...
  6. This is pretty cool and am curious how well it...

    This is pretty cool and am curious how well it works. I like the idea of having "supercharger-like" (near instant response to throttle tip-in) low-end power coupled with the good mid to high-end...

    Check out the start (0:08s) - it sounded like the M short shifted (at least I think it was the M)... I am guessing LC wasn't used? It looks like the M had a terrible start.

    I think the...
  8. This is awesome - surprised no one is commenting...

    This is awesome - surprised no one is commenting on this. The S70/2 is (as mentioned) likely the best IC engine ever made. I mean, even though this video is like 15 years old - every time I watch it,...

    You know an E60 M5 and E9X M3 (DCT) are within .2 seconds 0-100, right? The M5 is nearly 600 lbs. heavier than the M3.
  10. That is a car I really want to drive one day....

    That is a car I really want to drive one day. IMO, it was designed with a true "race engine" (and probably designed/engineered to "beat" the S65 - as I believe they used the M as the benchmark to...
  11. Makes sense, and I am sure that's a factor. I was...

    Makes sense, and I am sure that's a factor. I was looking for an article pertaining to the technical reasons, but I can't find it. I think given a certain set of dimensions/capacity, raising RPM is...
  12. Ha - no worries... I had it saved on my computer...

    Ha - no worries... I had it saved on my computer for a day like today. I am trying to find a good article explaining why most race cars have flat torque curves/high red-line/etc., but can't find...
  13. The purpose of a high revving engine is so a.)...

    The purpose of a high revving engine is so
    a.) you don't have to shift a million times and
    b.) you can use gearing to your advantage because of the lengthened torque curve (more RPMs)

    After...
  14. With all respect, I do not understand this. I...

    With all respect, I do not understand this. I have never driven a tuned 335i (and maybe that's the problem) - but the 335i was MUCH softer than the M in every single way. I would even say an E46 M3...
  15. I think a lot of people don't understand "don't...

    I think a lot of people don't understand "don't make any torque" - human beings cannot detect acceleration, they can only detect changes in acceleration. Jerk (change in acceleration) is the...
  16. I can't even imagine the amount of testing hours...

    I can't even imagine the amount of testing hours that went into this. This is AWESOME news for S65 owners; I am super stoked to see what people do with this. Nice job!
  17. Yeah, the 911 will be my next car... A 991.1...

    Yeah, the 911 will be my next car... A 991.1 would be the ideal replacement, however also would like to own a GT3 down the road - but for now, will drive the M until it blows up and/or I move to...
  18. Ha, I know... I hear ya. I need to wait to pass...

    Ha, I know... I hear ya. I need to wait to pass emissions in May - otherwise, I will have to add the cats back on - and it will be a huge PIA. I don't know anyway around this - would love to know how...

    They ship for free, says about 1 week to get to my door, then need to drop the oil and send it on it's way. I will definitely create a new thread for the analysis.

    Here's where I ordered from...

    Just an update to the thread - I ordered the Blackstone kit, and am awaiting shipment. I will post results when I get them.

    I have a test pipe and stage 2 software just sitting on my floor waiting...
  21. I am going to - been putting that off way too...

    I am going to - been putting that off way too long. I'll let you know what they find. I change my oil MUCH more frequently than the CPU calls for - at least 4 times a year, but am not sure if that...
  22. Good to know... I'll have to dig around to find...

    Good to know... I'll have to dig around to find the information. I have 108k (hard) miles on my car, curious how much longer my bearings will stay put. <g>
  23. Seems logical - and makes sense. I would love to...

    Seems logical - and makes sense. I would love to hear an engineering discussion on this.
  24. Serious LOL moment there.

    Serious LOL moment there.
  25. I don't understand this - can you explain? I...

    I don't understand this - can you explain? I would want a thicker oil at temperature than a thinner oil - the oil is not going to affect the bearing clearance either way, right? An incompressible...
