    All the best with your CLK but come on be realistic challenging me with a drag car while I drive a daily car is not fair! But I will break the 4 second 60-130 for sure in more than one car

    You're right. I referenced the wrong article. This is the one where you questioned. https://www.benzboost.com/content.php?10420-9-second-Mercedes-AMG-GLC63-GAD-Motors-tuned-GLC63-M177-does-9-99-138-7-1-4-mile What is done to it? GAD Motors has not said. You can safely assume an M177 turbo upgrade and some aggressive tuning.

    Look forward to it. You will likely see my CLK running 6's in the quarter this year....dont think you will quite catch that one but look forward to the challenge.

    If you can settle for 7.5k lbs you can get the ranger, if you want to pull more you gotta get the 3.5

    We live in a world where horsepower figures are exploding. Coming to market is a supercharged Mustang with well over 700 horsepower with a warranty (that Ford will even let you drag race/track) that will easily be able to clear quadruple digit output in the aftermarket. Yes, easy quadruple digits. How do we know this? Thanks to the Eaton TVS R2650 supercharger at the heart of the V8. This is a large, efficient, and very capable blower featuring a new design compared to smaller Eaton TVS blowers. A big difference is the 170 degree twist of the rotors compared to previous 160 degree designs. Why is this a big deal? Because the 170 degree design offers greater top end air flow. Combine this greater output with the 7500 rpm redline of the Predator and you are going to have a motor with some strong highway pull. Remember the GM LT4 V8 utilized in the C7 Corvette Z06? It features a TVS1740 supercharger. This is a 6.2 liter V8 with a supercharger almost a full liter smaller than what the Predator will see. The supercharger choice by GM was a mistake. They will not admit it but the LT5 V8 in the ZR1 going to the same TVS R2650 as the Predator essentially confirms it. GM went for low end response and sized a blower for the Z06 that needed to be spun hard to make power in turn generating a lot of heat. This also did not leave as much headroom for higher boost pulley swaps as you might think. Just look at the efficiency advantage the R2650 provides over an R2300 let alone a TVS1740: The high twist, 4-lobe rotor design is 15% larger than the TVS 2300 and features several improvements to maximize efficiency and performance at upper RPMs: 170 degree twist (versus 160) Better sealing with optimized "Length to Diameter" ratio Increased durability with larger bearings and timing gears Pressure relief ports in bearing plate for reduced input power R2650 advantages over R2300: 4% more efficient 15% larger displacement (2650cc versus 2300cc) 18% less input power required 25% more air flow at 18,000 RPM and 14 psi boost (2.0 pressure ratio) 25% more air flow at 18,000 RPM and 14 PSI of boost is excellent. Less heat, more air, that's a winning combination. Early reports are that the GT500 will see 12 psi of boost pressure. Do not be hoping for more boost. Hope for more power with less boost pressure and in turn less heat. That also means room to crank the blower up. Hope for volumetric efficiency. The heads being based on the Voodoo GT350 V8 design will greatly help with making power and flowing air efficiently. Let's look at an LT4 dyno (overlaid on an LS9): Notice the torque curve holds well until about 5000 rpm where it takes a dive. The LT4 is great for lighting your rear tires up and not so much for revving out to redline. Still, 573 rear wheel horsepower and 561 rear wheel torque is fairly strong. The ZR1 LT5 with its R2650 takes things up considerably: 668 rwhp and 644 lb-ft of rear wheel torque. Also notice the power curve is much prettier with power building until redline. The torque curve is flatter and it drops in a steady, progressive manner as it is revved out. To be noted, the LT5 sees 14 psi of boost pressure from the factory. Ford knows exactly what the actual output of the LT5 is. They know the LT4's output. They know the Hellcat's output and the Demon's output. They know they are coming to market after these cars. Speaking of which, the Demon/Red Eye is the only competition featuring a larger supercharger at 2.8 liters but it is also a twin screw design. Ford is not coming to play with Hellcats in 2019. They intend to be the top dog. That means they know they are competing with this as well: The Hellcat with its 2.4 liter screw is producing 670 rwhp in STD correction on a Dynojet on pump fuel. The Demon and its 2.8 liter unit takes things to 704 wheel horsepower on pump fuel in STD correction. Want a guess? The GT500 will produce somewhere in between the Demon and the Hellcat pump fuel figures. That extra 1000 rpm the GT500 Predator V8 has on the LT5's redline in the Corvette ZR1 will really allow the R2650 to shine. Doesn't the Hellcat feature race gas modes? Why yes, it does. Here is what its output looks like on the race gas tune with and without race gas: 776 rwhp is a lot of power and the GT500 will not be able to outmuscle it stock for stock. Dodge has Ford beat there with their one trick pony. The thing is, the GT500 does not have to. Hellcats are fat and Demons are not much lighter. The GT500 hopefully will come in under those 4200 pound rumors and with a dual clutch transmission be much more efficient for its output. It will be much more fun to drive. The GT500 will be able to do more with less and certainly will not have to fear anything from Hellcats while Demons will need to run race gas to be confident. Keep in mind, bigger is not always better. The TVS2650 will actually hold an advantage in flow over the 2.8 liter twin screw up until certain boost levels. Don't believe it? If only we could see what the Hellcat looks like with a TVS2650. Well, Magnuson fortunately has a TVS2650 Hellcat swap kit which tells us quite a bit: True reliable operating range to 20,000 RPM 33% higher flow than TVS2300 10% higher flow than a 2.9 screw 14% higher adiabatic efficiency at 14k rpm and 2.0 pressure ratio compared to screw 2.9 at the same flow 75F lower discharge temperature at 14k rpm and 2.0 pressure ratio compared to screw 2.9 at the same flow 26 HP less input power required at 14k rpm and 2.0 pressure ration compared to screw 2.9 at the same flow They hit 946 horsepower to the wheels at only 5800 rpm. We are going to see quadruple digits from bolt on tuned GT500's. Magnuson is going nuts with the R2650 claiming they can push it up to 1400+ horsepower if necessary on a built motor LT1: Ford chose the right blower and with their modified casing built around cooling it looks like there is going to be plenty of room to party. Forget Godzilla, the GT500 is the new king of tuning and bang for the buck performance. The engine not having direct injection is just a further blessing in disguise as ethanol tuning will not be fuel system limited. Ask McLaren if you think direct injection is necessary for a performance car. Speaking of which, the 720S is the undisputed performance king. For $350k+ it better be. Nearly 700 whp out of the box is no joke: The crazy thing is, the GT500 has nothing to fear. Sure, it will be slower stock. Let's estimate 135 mile per hour trap speeds for the GT500 whereas the 720S is a ~143 mile per hour car. The GT500's weight is a problem and for your money McLaren provides a light carbon tub but it is nothing raw muscle can not overcome. GT500's will be turning 140+ traps with ethanol tunes. 150+ with high boost and other goodies. Frankly, it will be a hell of a lot of fun to watch just how far stock blower cars will go. Ford is providing a platform that can go against the world's best at any price point. The R2650 blower choice can not be complimented enough. While the Red Eye and Demon pack a 2.8 liter twin screw there is no other car for sale in the world with a supercharger over 2.65 liters revving to 7500 rpm that is paired to a dual clutch transmission. Ford is providing the best combination of technology, efficiency, and raw muscle for the money. Add in carbon fiber rims, a carbon fiber driveshaft, a built in line-lock, and you have a car with features nobody else sells at any price point. Who else wants one?

    I'd like to be able to tow ~10k and I'd say not too often. A few times a year?

    One of the dividends from Aston Martin utilizing AMG V8 power in their next gen cars is that much of the tuning carries over. The M177 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 as we all know is a powerhouse and tuners are extracting incredible performance numbers. Well, Aston Martin owners can share in those performance gains. Namely if they have a new V8 Vantage or DB11. The main difference in the Aston Martin application is that the motor is paired to the ZF 8HP75 8-speed automatic. Based on what Weistec tells BoostAddict, this transmission can take a beating and makes the cars potent on the strip. As for output, that will range based on supporting modifications. Water-methanol injection for example is recommended to extract maximum performance. One can expect output in the 600-700 whp range: As this is a hybrid turbo upgrade everything bolts in like stock. Key Features: 600 to 700 HP at the wheels(700 to 820 HP at the engine) depending on fuel and supporting modifications 5 Axis CNC Machined High RPM Balanced for perfection operation Substantial power throughout the RPM range Stock Appearance when installed 100% Bolt on installation All necessary hardware and gaskets are included The turbo upgrade retails for $4999.99 Product page: https://weistec.com/all/aston-martin/v8-vantage/w-3-turbo-upgrade-v8-vantage-db11.html

    Ladies and gentlemen, introducing the new overall S55 power record and the world's most powerful F80 M3. RK-Tunes previously topped 1000 rear wheel horsepower (being the first to do so) last year but criticism ensued due to the number coming from a Dynocom. Well, here is the new record on the Maximum PSI Dynojet: The mod list for those that did not memorize it: Motor Assembled in house by RK-Tunes Pauter rods ARP head studs Wiseco Maximum PSI Spec Pistons Maximum PSI Keyed Crank Hub Custom Top Mount manifold by Ricky at 88 Lab Dodson Clutches DSS Driveshaft and Axles Treadstone 4.5" Intercooler Southbay 1200cc port injectors Custom fuel system Chinese Intake Manifold TPG modified rear brake calipers 17" wheels with drag radials or slicks BC Racing 2-way shocks and custom suspension We are well into the quadruple digit era of S55 power gentlemen. RK-Tunes is running into valve float issues (no surprise there, BimmerBoost stated this would happen) and they will push further once this is resolved: Congrats to all involved.

    F450. Lol in all seriousness, if you tow only occasionally like to the track etc I'd get the ranger, I did hear about recalls though so you may want to look into that. If you tow alot and tow RVs for camping etc. I'd get the 3.5 Ecoboost, or the good ol v8, depending on what you want for towing and fuel economy.

    I've been considering the new Ranger but man seeing what Pure Turbos and BMW are getting out of the V6 Ecoboost is insane. I'm thinking maybe a 3.5 Ecoboost F150 would be a good way to go? The Raptor is cool but expensive and doesn't tow as much. Still, a badass truck just not for towing. I want to be able to get both my cars to the track if necessary and also maybe get a travel trailer for fun. Maybe a boat? Who knows. What trucks would you guys recommend?

    So the Republicans sold out Trump in their omnibus bill. The wall gets even less funding. Is this a joke? The government no longer represents the people. This is pointless. They will never do what is right. They are bought and paid for. Trump is going the National Emergency route it seems. Expect REEEEEEEEEING from here to the moon.

    That’s true the Weistec CLK did a flat 4 60-130mph indeed it is quicker! Just put in mind my SLS ran 4.37 seconds on pump gas tune and no meth plus it’s running on all Mercedes parts no 3 speed or 4 speed shifters not on a fully prepped quarter mile just plain everyday road, I hope with a race fuel tune I will catch Jcarts 4 second very soon sorry I have no output figures on the car never been on a dyno with air mass calculation we should be around 1200hp on the crank
