    Man doesn't look like Bitcoin is going to dip back down below 10k. Everything is up sharply. Good thing I guess but now I'm worried just how far Bitcoin will rise.

    I just want to see some actual results for all these motors they claim they have.

    I don’t want to be a hater but +$60,000 for a glorified S85 is too damn much. Something about them just throws me off.

    Anyone else skeptical of fast times coming out of the Middle East that nobody else can seemingly match? Anyone else think a desert climate producing record runs is suspect? You should be skeptical. Yas Marina is known for timing shenanigans and cheating on the strip which BoostAddict called out and verified with the NHRA. The Bahrain 1/4 mile strip has a better reputation but it still is not NHRA accredited which means its timing equipment is not officially NHRA compliant. Don't take it from us, take it from the NHRA's worldwide consultant Mark Hughes: Alpha Logic no doubt built an absurdly fast GTR: I'm also sure the Bahrain facility is top notch just like Yas Marina but until the track officials play by official NHRA rules it simply does not count. Just as laptimes would not count if the track was not FIA certified 1/4 mile times do not count until the dragstrip is NHRA certified. It's long overdue for the Middle East to start playing by the same rules as everyone else.

    Remember the Acura Type-S models? Well, it has been a while since Acura produced anything truly performance oriented (the new NSX at least showed they have a pulse). The head of Honda in America Toshiaki Mikoshiba stated the Type-S brand would return and it would serve as a performance division for Honda. Make sense to us: This begs the question, what the hell have they been doing since the last Acura Type-S model in 2008? It looks like performance enthusiasts may soon be able to take Acura seriously again.

    A lot of guys in the N54 world like to tinker with their cars. That is a good thing but sometimes can lead to unexpected issues. Over the years on BimmerBoost guys have bricked their DME's or done things that required soldering new connections. Well, for those worried something unexpected might happen BPC (Bimmer Performance Center) can clone your ECU so you have a spare: Not a bad idea for those guys messing around or who maybe want peace of mind just in case something happens when tuning.

    As you know Whipple redesigned their 2.9 liter twin screw blower last year. The new third generation design includes different casing and an improved rotor profile. Essentially, the third generation blower is a more efficient and more modern design. How much more efficient? Check out the result on this 2003/2004 Mustang Cobra. It is tuned on E85 at 21 psi of boost. The dyno overlay is back to back with a custom tune for each: Monster power and torque gains at the same boost level: 810 RWHP / 737 RWTQ - Gen 3 Whipple 725 RWHP / 647 RWTQ- Gen 2 Whipple Those running the 2.9 liter Gen 2 should definitely look into the Gen 3. Nothing better than making your motor even more efficient with less heat and more power.

    PPM (Pure Performance Motorsport Australia or PPM Racing) claims to have various built stroker motors available for many platforms. For example, they claimed to have a 5.0 liter S63TU stroker motor for $18k which can go up to $40k+ with options. How much do they want for this 3.7 liter S55 built race motor? $44,000.00. Why? Well, again, it depends on options such as these: Their bore x stroke is 91mm x 94mm. Compare it to the stock specs: S55B30 DISPLACEMENT (CC): 2,979 BLOCK/HEAD MATERIAL: ALUMINUM/ALUMINUM BORE STROKE (MM): 84.0mm x 89.6mm HORSEPOWER (SAE NET): 425 @ 7,300 RPM TORQUE: 406 LB.-FT. @ 1,850 - 5,500 RPM SPECIFIC OUTPUT: 141.6 HP/L COMPRESSION RATIO: 10.2:1 Another 7 mm of bore is hard to believe but perhaps the closed deck block allows greater bore gains than the N54 or N55 blocks. You will notice there are no N54 or N55 stroker motors approaching this displacement despite having the same factory bore and stroke as the S55. Does a 3.7 liter S55 race motor with custom cams and valvetrain parts sound awesome? Hell yes! The question is, who will try it? Where is the proof of it even existing? Who designed these cams and why aren't they offered separately? Hopefully someone finds out if this is the real deal.

    APR is offering a factory reliable performance upgrade for 1.8T turbo four-cylinder equipped Audi and Volkswagen models. It is essentially factory reliable because APR is using factory turbochargers to boost output combined with APR's software. The IS20 turbocharger is utilized on the Golf GTI and the IS38 sees used on the Golf R as well as the Audi S3. If Audi/VW were to upgrade the 1.8T motors this is how they would do it themselves. So what kind of gains will you see? Take a look at this dyno overlay to get an idea: That yellow line? That is where the 1.8T starts. Not exactly a powerhouse. That red line pushing 325 horsepower to all four wheels? That is what you want. More than double the 1.8T factory output! No reason the 1.8T can't have the punch of its 2.0 big brothers: Both upgrades completely transform the 1.8T, adding between 104-188 HP over stock, depending on setup. With this release, we now support all 1.8T models in North America, as listed below: Audi A3 1.8 TFSI - S Tronic VW Golf 1.8 TSI - 5 Speed Manual & Tiptronic VW Golf Alltrack 1.8 TSI DSG All Wheel Drive VW Golf Sportwagen 1.8 TSI 5 Speed Manual, 6 Speed Manual, Tiptronic & DSG Front Wheel Drive & All Wheel Drive Product Pages: IS20 Turbo ECU Upgrade IS38 Turbo ECU Upgrade

    Alright. I should have done it yesterday but let's see if we get another dip shortly. It's at 10.7 right now. I notice it tends to dip during the night then as the East Coast gets up and sees losses weak hands sell off.

    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.
