    Translated to English : What the headline suggests is the 720S dominated on the small and large curves(magny-cours) as well as the straightaway(lurcy-Levis). They also mentioned the GT2’s behaviour was brutal, the huracan exciting and all-heart, the 720s relaxed - versatile but effective...

    Excuse the French please but we'll take what we can get when it comes to comparing these three superstars. The Porsche 911 GT2 RS as you well know is the current Nurburgring champion taking the laptime record from the Lamborghini Huracan Performante. The McLaren 720S is hardly a slouch around the track but we do not have Nurburgring times for it. Additionally, in a German comparison the GT2 RS came out ahead of the 720S around the track. This time around the 720S vanquishes both the GT2 RS and the Huracan Performante around the track: This is on the French Magny-Cours GP circuit but still the 720S easily wins and maybe it is due to changing to Trofeo R tires: 720S: 1:16.80 Performante: 1.17:17 GT2 RS: 1:17.36 The Nurburgring conquering Porsche brings up the rear. The 720S of course is the fastest in a straight line and also the lightest: Weight: 720S 3198 GT2 RS 3340 Performante 3364 400 Meters: 720 S 10.3 @ 146.44 GT2 RS 10.5 @ 140.43 Performante 10.6 @ 134.83 As stated BoostAddict does not speak French but they pick the 720S as the best car followed by the Lamborghini Huracan Performante. In this particular test, the GT2 RS comes up last.

    i agree with this and kinda eludes to my point.... germany cries that it needs US protection from russia, but then proceeds to buy billions $ of energy from russia... so they dont really need our protection since russia wont attack that cash cow... germany just doesnt want to spend all that money and have to turn around and contribute fully to nato- they would rather let us pick up their slack so they can keep spending billions to russia..... so they throw a fake tantrum about how much they need protection from russia to pressure US "to do the right thing" :angry-soapbox: this 100%....

    You're not thinking about it incorrectly though. Imagine if you were spending advertising dollars with Vishnu who promised to use your product and those dollars were then used to create competing products that eat into your market share. You are essentially propping up your opponent.

    On the flip side Germany opening up more trade with Russia will make the likelihood for war less likely, so in that regard it's a good thing, so our best move rather than continually cry about NATO resources is to simply pull back our troops and let NATO decide if/how to replace them.

    Some people do not want to go to port fuel injection or perhaps want to drop IAT's in the charge pipe. An additional fuel injector is nothing new and how many tuners would add fuel to tuned setups without breaking the bank. The Fuel-It! setup will work with pretty much any turbo BMW engine including the N54, N55, S55, B58, and S63TU. You will notice dual and quad setups below detailed by Fuel-It!. Why go this route? Fuel-It! explains: 1. Allows users running E85 or high ethanol mixes to run off the stock fuel system to: 1a. Inject fuel and supplement their HPFP so it doesn't crash. 1b. Inject meth or E85 from their port injection fuel rail for IAT's or more fueling potential. 1c. Not have to run an additional tank and pump. (Although we do that with these as well) 2. Offers full PWM control. This is not an "On or Off" system, duty cycle of the injector(s) can be varied from 0-80% (above 80% is not recommended for injectors) 3. An injection option for those platforms that don't have access to port injection. A lot of platforms that it doesn't make sense or isn't possible. 4. With a meth nozzle you must also have a solenoid and FSB to control it. Those that are running port injection and wanted a nozzle in the charge pipe either use a meth kit, or source fuel/meth from the fuel rail and then run it to a solenoid and nozzle with FSB to trigger it but it's still an "on or off" system. In this case, they would simple connect the injector to the fuel rail and connect the injector power to their existing port injection controller. Now the "7th injector" has full PWM control, no secondary or alternate control system is needed. At various points we've discussed a new fueling option we've been working on and it's finally come to fruition. For lack of a better term and since it's how most people will use it, we're referring to it at CPI or Charge Pipe Injection. Many will also refer to it as "the 7th injector" or 5th, 9th, what ever the case may be for you. Anyway, we've had a lot of people come to us that port injection wasn't an option, they didn't want to run port injection, wanted one of our old TBI kits, or they have one of our port injection kits and want to run an additional injector in the charge pipe for IAT's. Consequently, we started working on a solution and this was a product of that. We know there will be a lot of questions as the possible applications are endless. This also posses an issue for us in trying to supply you with the most versatile product and options possible. Consequently there are a lot of options to meet your needs. We'll try to briefly cover some of them and hit the highlights but feel free to respond to the thread or email us with questions at info@fuel-it.com. To get started, here is our basic injector assembly... As you can see the assembly has a single injector that flush with the end of the assembly and is PWM controlled like any other injector based on boost, RPM, etc. This particular injector assembly is a single feed injector with a -4an flared input and it mounts in any 1/8" npt meth bung for a nice flush fit. Shown mounted in CPe/BMS chargepipe In addition to that assembly we also have a dual input assembly so we can daisy chain them to use multiple injectors when needed. Such as the case with our M5 with the S63TU motor. It's actually got 4 injectors installed that are fed from the LPFP source. Here are two injectors installed pre-intercooler at the top of the motor and an additional two injectors installed post intercooler. Here's another dual injector application on the S55. To make a connection at the stock fuel source on most BMW's and a lot of other manufactures out there, we also needed to develop a fitting based on our Cam-Lock design so it was easy to install and is compatible with the awkward stock HPFP hard line. Consequently these are now available as well. It's a male 5/16" quick connect input with a female 5/16" output as well as an integrated -4an male flare fitting. These will fit the N54, N55, B58, S55, S63TU, etc. Typically the next question is, "how is it controlled?" Just like port injection the injectors are PWM and it is controlled with a standard port injection controller such as the BMS port injection controller or the Split Second. If you're already running port injection, you can simply attach the new injector harness to controller with the supplied PosiTaps. If running multiple stand alone injectors (more than 1 or 2) we recommend running a dedicated controller. If using the Split Second, we'd also recommend getting the flash file from us as there are some changes that need to be made to setup to optimize it. We're also working on other control solutions that are currently in development or testing but not ready to be released yet. Because these assemblies can be used in so many applications, we've created 3 different listings on our website to meet your needs The first is for our "Starter kit". This is a complete kit that includes the injector, fuel line, fuel line adapter, injector installation tool, and the wiring harness to connect to your injector controller. Starter Kit shortcut For those looking to run more than one injector or wishing to build their own kit, you are able to purchase injectors ala-cart. Ala-Cart shortcut When doing your own thing you will also need fittings, fuel lines, wiring harnesses, etc. so those are available here. CPI Accessories shortcut In addition, since the GTI platform didn't have a good option for a meth bung, we also developed a coupler with dual meth bungs so they could run our injector assemblies as well. At this time we only have the 2.5'" couplers available but will be adding to that as demand merits it. 2.5" coupler shorcut Last but not least we know a lot of people will be looking for kits for specific applications such as the S63TU. We are working on putting kits like that together but in the meantime are offer lots of different line lengths and fittings to meet those needs. Until we we more application specific data and have time to document and assemble those, we'll only be doing the generic kits which will fit most peoples needs. Feel free to post your questions for applications and then share your installations as that will help us get those application specifics assembled that much more quickly.

    The Porsche 997.1 3.6 liter motor is stout as we all know. There is a point where you want to stop pushing it to spare the rods and that is about where AIM and ESmotor tuned this example on E85 ethanol. The rods tends to give past the 7XX lb-ft of torque at the wheels range. This all depends on how hard the motor is driven, conditions, tuning, etc. Very stout stock internal figures: 751 rear wheel horsepower on E85 and 712 on pump gas. Torque on E85 tops out at 687 lb-ft which is about the upper end of reliability although people have made more. The question if you want more is, how long will it last?

    This video conveniently comes on the heels of an aftermarket tuned BMW F90 M5 taking on a stock Mercedes-AMG E63 S. A Competition BMW F90 M5 is just basically an F90 M5 with a mild factory tune and factory warranty with some minor extras. Is the F90 M5 Competition faster than a standard W213 Mercedes-AMG E63 S? Yes. Is it as fast an F90 M5 with an aftermarket tune? No. It is the option for people who fear for their warranty but want a bit more power. Mercedes-AMG will no doubt respond with a stronger version of the E63 S eventually that will top the M5 Competition. That is the nature of the turbo era. Maybe they are waiting to see what Audi has in store?

    Excellent work here from Stip Polish Point in the Netherlands who restored this Ferrari Testarossa to its former glory. A TBT (throwback thursday) reminder the Ferrari Testarossa was a mid-engine sports car with a 4.9 liter flat-12 motor. Yes, a flat-12 or boxer-12 however you want to look at it. This was the last time Ferrari ever produced a flat-12 which is disappointing to say the least. It also makes the Testarossa a classic. Enjoy this before/after detailing work.

    HGP Turbonachrüstung (try saying that three times fast) in Germany is readying what looks to be a hybrid turbo upgrade for the EA839 2.9 liter twin turbo V6 powered Audi B9 RS4 and RS5. As far as AudiBoost knows tuners still do not have access to the ECU so it seems they will have the hardware ready before the software is fully mature. That is often the case these days but they are also claiming 615+ horsepower capability without any proof. Obviously the motor will be capable of that power but of course we want to see it. This upgrade should in theory carry over to other cars powered by this EA839 such as the Porsche Panamera 4S and the Cayenne S.
