    Incredible dyno numbers here from Pure Turbos from their Stage 2 N54 turbo upgrade. If the video posted a couple days ago showing an automatic Pure Turbos upgraded 335i running away from a FBO (full bolt on) GTR did not convince you these turbos are the real deal then these dyno results definitely should. The 683 rear wheel horsepower peak figure is a new automatic stock frame turbo record on the platform. It is important to point this out with the automatic transmission being known for having issues handling power and torque on the N54 platform. Regardless, this transmission is holding and putting down some impressive numbers. Here are further details from Pure Turbos as well as graphs at multiple boost levels: We strapped the car to the dyno one more time this morning. Reminder: This is an auto trans car, running e50 + meth, and stg1 inline LPFP! First three runs were: file_18 - Map3 add 70 - 601whp file_19 - Map6 28psi to redline - 657whp file_20 - Map6 30psi to redline - 679whp We then bumped boost to 30.9 for a few runs, messed with duty bias a bit. Here's all the runs together: Also, here's another log from another N54 PURE stg2 car showing spool. AT car in 4th gear, stock inlets. Hits target at 3293 rpm. I don't want to hear another word about spool!!!

    The new NSX seems to be a never ending story. Prototype for the second generation NSX were running the Nurburgring as early as 2008. Well, the car will finally be coming to market nearly a decade later now as a 2017 model instead of as a 2016 as expected. The reason for this is all of the Honda/Acura engine changes. Originally a V10 was planned but with emissions tightening the car became a hybrid with a turbo powerplant. The motor they settled on is a 3.5 liter twin turbo V6 with a dry sump oiling system but apparently development of this motor has caused delays with the body/chassis being stretched to accommodate it. What changes and testing Honda is doing of the powerplant internally is anyone's guess. Rumors are changes from a transverse to longitudinal layout created hurdles but it appears finally, for real this time, the NSX will hit the streets late next year. That should give you time to save up the $150k+ anyway.

    Jaguar is readying their F-Pace SUV and they intend to position it as a sporty vehicle and a drive's SUV so to speak. They are doing this by using aluminum to keep weight down as well as utilizing suspension, chassis, and braking technology developed for the F-Type sports car. That does not mean the F-Pace will be one-dimensional as it will also offer plenty of utility and capability as the test video below shows. These days SUV's are expected to do everything which includes performing well on and off the road. The F-Pace obviously will not challenge any Land Rover siblings for off-road capability but the on-road capability likely will offer much higher performance and better driving dynamics. For example the all wheel drive system is expected to have a rear wheel bias and will reduce power to any given wheel with its torque on demand system to improve cornering. This will also help mitigate understeer. If Jaguar is taking performance so seriously it is almost a given their 5.0 liter direct injected and supercharged V8 will find its way under the hood. There will be some cannibalization of Land Rover sales due to this. We will have to wait and see the final specs but so far this vehicle is shaping up to offer a strong challenge in the performance SUV segment. Expect it in 2016.

    That is the current rumor although it is based somewhat in reality. The new G11 7-Series is rumored to get this new 3.0 liter inline-6 diesel with four turbochargers. This would be utilized in a M750d model that would have xDrive all wheel drive and would not launch until well into 2016. That is of course providing the information is accurate. BMW does produce a tri-turbo 3.0 liter inline-6 in the 550d / 50d models. The triple turbocharged motor produces 381 horsepower and 546 lb-ft of torque. BMW is expected to take things beyond 400 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque with this new quad turbocharged motor. It is unknown if this motor will use conventional turbochargers or if there will be some sort compressor spun with electricity to supplement the exhaust driven turbos. It is too early to tell at this time but even if BMW does produce this the chances of it coming to the USA are slim to none. Source

    It just doesn't matter where Trent Richardson signs at this point. The problem doesn't seem to be the location or coaches.
