    Dinan is leaving the Bay Area in California for APR's massive facility in Alabama. Why? Well, because as both are a part of Performance Driven Brands the move makes sense for development from an engineering, production, and cost perspective. You will notice Dinan abandoned their Volkswagen tuning aspirations and now will focus solely on BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Mini. Overall, this is a good thing as one would figure APR's expertise and engineers will lend Dinan a hand. BoostAddict also expects APR/Dinan to cover more platforms going forward.

    PPM (Pure Performance Racing Australia) is known for their stroker kits for various motors. They certainly have some impressive pieces and stroker kits although their M133 forged billet crank maintains the OEM stroke. Will they do a stroker crank? Only they know and it certainly would be interesting to see how much more displacement they could extract out of the M133 especially with their overbore pistons: They do not list any pricing information for the crank but the forged pistons and rods run $3200: Considering big turbo kits are out now for the M133 forged internals will likely be necessary if going past 500 awhp. Who is going to be the first to do an all forged internal and big turbo M133 build?

    @Sticky could you exclude new members posts from Latest posts and New Posts area? The amounts of new members, though I'm not sure if it's spam or actual, are overwhelming with REAL content. Thanks sir.

    Before we even begin let's point out the Cadillac CTS-V deserves huge props. Why? Because it is offering something unique in an increasingly bland segment. Yes, yes, the new BMW M5, E63, Panamera Turbo, and Audi RS7 are all faster and more powerful than their predecessors. They all are also basically the same exact thing. Big, heavy, all wheel drive sedans with 4.0 - 4.4 liter top mount twin scroll turbocharged V8's. Cadillac offers the biggest V8 in the class at 6.2 liters and sticks to rear wheel drive. They supercharge their motor for a very different power delivery. It is also the lightest of the bunch at 4108 pounds: You could argue (successfully) the throttle response, balance, and configuration of the CTS-V make it more of an M5 than BMW's own new M5. Ok, so how do the CTS-V and E63 S compare around the figure 8? Both pull .88 g but the E63 pulls through quicker. What about straightline performance? 0-60: E63 3.2 CTS-V 3.8 1/4 mile: E63 11.3 @ 124.2 CTS-V 11.9 @ 122.0 If you put a premium on the straightline aspect, the E63 wins. All wheel drive allows the torque to be put down much more easily. If stoplights are your thing, it is no contest. Do not forget the CTS-V can make much more power much more easily thanks to sharing the C7 Z06 aftermarket. So what about the subjective points? The CTS-V is said to feel much lighter obviously and very well composed. Traction off the line does not determine the better car to drive once moving. The CTS-V chassis is playful and easy to control. The E63 S is more of a brute. It just eats up tarmac. Not that it does not handle well because it certainly does. The main complaint is how the E63 brakes. The Mercedes-AMG pedal feel just is not as good. So which is quicker around the track? The CTS-V but it's oh so close: You can tell the CTS-V is better in the turns but the all wheel drive traction and outright muscle of the E63 S almost puts it ahead of the CTS-V as it ran it down on the final straight. Overall, the CTS-V is the driver's choice here. It also offers an incredible value when looking at the as tested prices. You can not go wrong with the E63 S but Cadillac deserves the win and praise for not just doing what everyone else is and producing a sedan that truly emphasizes sporty driving.

    Selling my jb4 I used in my 2012 f10 m5. I sold the car a while ago. The JB4 is about 8-12 months old. I bought the m5 used in 2016. The JB4 worked prior to my mechanic removing it. Asking $750 CAD + Shipping payable by e-transfer. Located in Alberta I do not have the original packaging the jb4 came in, if there was any. Initially this is Canada only because filling out commercial invoices for international shipments sucks. pics Thanks for looking :)
