    As some of you know BimmerBoost attempted to do a giveaway previously with Rob Beck of RB Turbo which did not work out due to prematurely giving away turbos that were not in stock or ready to ship. Things unfortunately did not go as planned and timelines did not align. This left me feeling bad that Rob Beck needlessly took flack when he didn't do anything wrong and only tried to help. If anything, BimmerBoost.com was responsible for pushing to give away turbos too early and Rob should not be forced to adhere to a schedule that is not his own. I contacted Rob and asked him if we could try this again to make things right and celebrate the holidays in a positive fashion with our members. What better gift could there be than free upgraded N54 turbos? This time around the turbos are in stock and ready to go so when the holiday contest is over they will be ready to ship. 2016 has been a tough year for many of us and I simply want to thank the members here, BMW enthusiasts, our lurkers, and our vendors for sticking together through tough times. What we are giving away is $3000 toward any turbos or products in the 2017 RB Turbo catalog. Spend it however you like! I wish you all the best going into an uncertain 2017. I hope it is a prosperous year for you and your families. There is much more to life than the forums and cars but this place is a fun break from reality from time to time. You all make a real difference in my life and I wish to repay the favor. We're celebrating six years of BimmerBoost, who truly thought we'd get this far? Happy Holidays to you and your families! Contest Details: How to enter: Post in this thread that you wish to enter and I will record how many rep points you have at the time. Requirements: Minimum 10 rep points to enter. How to gain raffle entries: Every rep point you gain from your time of entry qualifies as one raffle entry. You gain rep points by posting and creating threads. Example: You have 10 rep points at the time of entry. You have 20 rep points after the contest is over. 20 - 10 = 10 so you have 10 entries in the raffle. The more you post and contribute the better your odds of winning. There is no limit on how many entries you can gain. Contest dates: 12/3/2016 - 1/16/2016 The winner can choose from anything in the RB catalog below including Super RB EVO's with either option A, B, or C. Any other options will have to be paid by the winner along with shipping. First place: $3000 RB Turbo credit Second place: $400 BMS store credit Third place: Autographed picture of my dog: *BimmerBoost reserves the right to disqualify any contestant for any reason including cheating or multiple screen names.

    Well how about that? Finally an aftermarket camshaft option for the N54 is coming to fruition. After, oh, about a half dozen tries from various parties. Ultimately, in the modern BMW world, if anyone is going to deliver a working performance cam option it is going to be Schrick. They just took forever. Why did it take so long? Only they know. Maybe now they see the N54 aftermarket is interested in revving out higher especially with a big turbo upgrade and cams address a need in that respect. Here are the specs from VAC: No pricing yet but as soon as it comes in BimmerBoost will be the first to update you. It's what we do.

    2.0 liter turbo I4 vs. 3.0 liter twin turbo I6 and the four-cylinder comes out on top? Yep. To be fair, the MKVII Golf R has a turbo upgrade courtesy of APR and their Stage III+ kit while the BMW S55 3.0 liter I6 is on the factory turbos but the Golf also has an engine 2/3 the size. The F80 M3 is tuned with a BMW JB4 piggyback but what supporting mods it has or what map it is running is unknown. This is the Golf R mod list: APR Stage 3+ Kit APR ECU + TCU Tune APR Intake APR Intercooler Milltek Valved Catback System USP Cool Flow Filter Housing USP Cool Flow DSG Filter Housing USP High Flow Turbo Inlet Hose Spulen Catch Can KW V3 Coilovers Vossen VFS1 P3 VIDI Gauge The all wheel drive dual clutch Golf R getting the better elapsed time here is no surprise. However, it also traps higher than the M3 as well. Certainly impressive performance by the Golf. Video courtesy of USP Motorsports: https://www.youtube.com/uspmotorsports

    About time the N63 gets some turbo upgrade love! All the attention is focused on the S63 engine but the N63 is the same displacement and same basic design. Where they really differ is in the manifold and turbos. Well, with upgraded turbos the N63 is very potent as these results show. The car is a 2011 550i with the following modifications: -N63 PURE Stg1 Turbo Upgrade -BMS JB4 w/ BCM -3.5bar tmap sensors -Meth kit -Intake + Exhaust -Heavy 21" wheels The result? A ton of power and torque: Cracking 700 rear wheel horsepower on race gas with further tuning should be possible. No doubt people are asking about the N63TU which is utilized in 2014 on 550i models. One would have to assume Pure Turbos will offer upgrades for the TU variant as well. You can pick up a 2011 550i in the $25k range. Add this turbo upgrade and have an M5 killer for a fraction of the cost.

    What went wrong? When exactly did Cadillac become the savior of enthusiast vehicles? The luxury mid-size performance sedan segment is iconic. BMW made its name with the M5. It was the car to beat. Nobody else was even close. Somehow, everything went wrong. The next gen battle is going to stink. It's boring. It's lame. Oh, sure, you will all point to the 0-60 times and how the interiors improved and how much quicker the new cars are. They're supposed to be quicker. They're also supposed to drive better. Let's do a quick history lesson starting with the car that set the bar. The E39 M5. What was it? This: E39 M5 Engine: NA 4.9 liter V8 Horsepower: 394 Torque: 369 lb-ft Drivetrain: 6-speed manual rear wheel drive Now let's take a look at the competition from AMG at the time: W210 E55 Engine: NA 5.5 liter V8 Horsepower: 349 Torque: 391 lb-ft Drivetrain: 5-speed automatic rear wheel drive And Audi? They offered something truly unique although it came late to the party: C5 RS6 Engine: Twin turbo 4.2 liter V8 Horsepower: 444 Torque: 428 lb-ft Drivetrain: 5-speed automatic all wheel drive Now those cars all offer something different. The M5 offers the best overall combination of power and driver involvement. The E55 is the most comfortable and easiest to drive. The Audi is an all wheel drive all weather terror although very nose heavy. Each had its own personality. The subsequent generation reinforced this although a power war broke out that we are still fighting today. The cars are now gauged based on their acceleration instead of the driver involvement. Who cares if they are heavy? Just give them more torque from turbo powerplants. From the above we went to the following which is the peak of this battle: E60 M5 Engine: NA 5.0 liter V10 Horsepower: 500 Torque: 380 lb-ft Drivetrain: 6-speed manual and 7-speed SMG III with rear wheel drive The answer from AMG was muscle. They initiated a horsepower war. Say what you want, the E60 M5 is the better driver's car compared to the W211 E55 AMG. Suddenly though, everything was about power. W211 E55 Engine: Supercharged 5.4 liter V8 Horsepower: 469 Torque: 516 lb-ft Drivetrain: 5-speed automatic with rear wheel drive Audi's response was truly outrageous although again they were late to the party. They also never brought the C6 RS6 to the United States so they only get a participation trophy this generation: C6 RS6 Engine: Twin Turbo 5.0 liter V10 Horsepower: 571 Torque: 479 lb-ft Drivetrain: 6-speed automatic with all wheel drive Notice how each car is distinct. Each car represents the philosophy and values of its company. The cars do not drive alike, do not have similar powerplants, do not have similar drivetrains, and have their own unique flavor. Now what? Here is how the next generation is shaping up: F90 M5 Engine: 4.4 liter twin turbo V8 top mount turbos Drivetrain: 7-speed dual clutch with all wheel drive W213 E63 AMG Engine: 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 top mount turbos Drivetrain: 9-speed automatic with all wheel drive C8 RS6 Engine: 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 top mount turbos Drivetrain: Automatic with all wheel drive 971 Panamera Engine: 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 top mount turbos Drivetrain: 8-speed dual clutch with all wheel drive How exciting. Everyone has a direct injected twin turbo V8 at 4.0-4.4 liters with top mount turbos. Everyone has all wheel drive. Everyone is doing the exact same thing and it's lame. Sure, there will be differences. But is the character of the vehicles really all that different? Is winding out an F90 M5 anything like hearing the E60 M5 V10 scream past 8000 rpm? Will you be able to swing the tail out or correct with power on oversteer? Nope. All of these cars will be heavy straightline missiles. These cars have more in common with the Nissan GTR now. The only ray of sunshine? Cadillac. The only company doing something different. The current CTS-V features a supercharged LT4 V8. The car is automatic but rear wheel drive and lighter than its competitors. It also offers the best driving dynamics in its class. Will the next gen Cadillac CTS-V offer rear wheel drive, a manual, and less weight than its competition? If so, then it's Cadillac that will offer what the M5 used to and nobody else is willing to. A driver's car. Bored yet? I am. P.S. No, the Lexus GS-F does not count. It's still struggling to top the E39 M5 from almost two decades ago let alone the E60 M5.

    How small of a... what's the word to use here that won't get this site banned at people's work/schools? Knob? Does one have to have to steal someone's slip and claim it as their own? Well, that is exactly what happened here. Just look at this pathetic display. Now you see the guy writing stories and patting himself on the back. He almost sounds believable. Delusional people often believe their own BS. What's the problem? The slip is from BoostAddict member @PianoProdigy and his Nissan GTR: Literally the entire thing is copied. You can't make this up. Not only is every single split identical, as is the difference between the right lane. It's a 100% copy. It just goes to show that even Porsche 911 Turbo owners can have tiny little 'egos' that need stroking. Oh, and this idiot did this twice now. Thank you to @PianoProdigy for sharing this hilarious story.

    Mid 10's with a daily driven F82 M4? Yep. The record to beat now is 10.492 @ 136.180 which is the fastest M4 pass to date and quickest M4 but the quickest overall pass on the S55 platform is still 10.278 and the fastest remains 137.60. What makes this particularly interesting is the new M4 record comes on a 1.723 60 foot which is worse than other 10 second passes. How do you account for that? More power and the ATCO dragstrip in cooler temps. We are going to see many records fall now that winter is basically here. This run took place in 55 degree weather yet this was still positive density altitude at 460 feet. There is a bit of room to improve here. What are the modifications? A JB4 with an S55 ECU flash tune from Precision Tuning and Xona Rotor turbochargers. The car also features the Maximum PSI S55 intake. Oh, and a Dodson upgraded DCT transmission which is appreciated with additional torque being sent to sticky Mickey Thompson rubber. Let's see that 9 second pass already.

    This is a hell of a run by the Viper. The car only has bolt on modifications. We're talking Belanger headers, an intake, cat delete, and an ecu flash tune through HP Tuners. That level of modification on the 8.4 liter V10 will result in roughly 600 to the wheels on pump gas. The 911 Turbo S not only has the advantage of a PDK transmission compared to the manual in the Viper it also has upgraded turbochargers. Readers here should be familiar with the ByDesign Stage IV package as member Markblackwell has it and has run 9.7 @ 143 in the 1/4 mile with it. This Viper won't trap 143 and ByDesign Stage IV packages are not all created equal as there are other mods one can do. Also, race gas is a huge factor. The 991 Turbo S here is running pump gas. That means it isn't making the 747 to the wheels one can hit on race gas. Still, incredible showing by the naturally aspirated Viper with just basic mods.

    Who saw this coming? The most interesting part of the 2016 Formula 1 season was watching Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton duke it out for the driver's championship. Rosberg ended up winning but it was a battle until the very end. Perhaps that battle drained Rosberg's energy? His statement is as follows: Rosberg is still under contract and signed a two year extension recently. He is leaving a lot of money on the table but he already has too much money to care. The rivalry with Lewis Hamilton seems to have taken its toll: He retires on top. Not a bad way to go out. The question now is who will challenge Hamilton?

    If you're saying to yourself that this is sexist you clearly are on the wrong website. This is brilliant. It is a fact that women are inferior to drivers to men. Sure, some feminist out there will point out that women are safer drivers but that's because nobody is in a hurry to get to the dry cleaners or gynecologist. How many of you have had your door or mirrors dinged by a huge SUV over the lines that is packed with a bunch of brats? It's surprising the Chinese are the first to come up with this as it is the most American idea regarding parking you could possibly have. Relax feminists. Just get better at parking and opening doors.

    This is disappointing news for N54 fans who were hoping for an all inclusive ECU solution that would alleviate many issues in the N54 community. Things like control of the DCT gearbox, support for additional injectors, tuning flexibility, etc., are all things the Syvecs ECU is capable of. Unfortunately, it seems that as always direct fuel injection system complications make a standalone ECU project that much more complex and difficult. The Syvecs S6 box is showing some impressive results on the E9X M3 S65 V8 but that motor is port fuel injected. This is what Syvecs had to say: The original date for the N54 application was late 2015. It just goes to show that this is very complex work.

    Whoa. This turbo E30 belongs to BimmerBoost member @Nisse Järnet and a hell of an E30 it is. Let's start with it being an all wheel drive 325ix. Yes, ix, not xi. That means it can put down the power from the turbocharged and built M50B28 inline-6. How much power? Good question. What we know is it is not at full boost. It doesn't need it. The GT3 RS gets a jump but the 325 flies by at higher speeds as if the GT3 RS is standing still. The 991 GT3 RS is obviously built for the track but it is no slouch in a straight line. Once this Bavarian hot rod spools though, game over. Modifications on the BMW are: M50B28 fully built, PT6765 turbo, Autronic SM4 ECU, active 4WD.

    We already know how this goes. Almost two years ago now we saw a Ferrari 458 and a Tesla Model S P85D go at it. The Tesla opens up a lead only for the Ferrari to go flying by at higher speeds. This is the new Model X P90D SUV model though which is more powerful but also heavier than the Model S. It goes as expected with the Model X getting the lead and then the Ferrari 458 running it down. It is just that the Ferrari is not able to do it in a 1/4 mile. It loses the race. The 458 runs 11.463 @ 120.91 to the Model X P90D 11.580 @ 115.70. Keep in mind density altitude doesn't matter for the Tesla and based on the Ferrari's time it sure seemed to be a bit warm out in Florida. Either way, yes, the Model X P90D sure is a stoplight terror.

    If the spacebar is not working for you after you quote someone that is due to a bug with the default editor and Chrome. Google is not addressing the issue and neither is Vbulletin. They just close threads on the topic and threatened to ban me if I bring up the issue again. Such great support for a paying customer. :rolleyes: Anyway, all we can do is work around it for now. If you do not quote by clicking quote but instead highlight to quote it works fine. If you do quote and have the issue click the 'A' in the upper left hand corner to switch your editor. No issues with the classic editor.

    This is incredible. The M240i beating the BMW M2 in acceleration? The N55B30T0 motor we know is basically an N55/S55 hybrid and it is restricted to ensure the M4 is not threatened. So why is BMW allowing the M240i to threaten the M2? The B58 is certainly a stout engine and it is a new architecture compared to the N55. It responds very well to modifications although it is fuel capped. Still, how is the B58 beating the N55B30T0? For one, the B58 is underrated and has a flatter torque curve. The M2 actually has similar power to the M240i. Forget the BMW crank figures. The B58 power curve also increases toward redline whereas the N55B30T0 torque curve drops off a cliff. It shows in how this comparison plays out. The M2 has the advantage down low partially due to its low rev torque peak but also due to the shift speed advantage offered by the DCT transmission. The M2 gets to 60 mph quicker but past 70 mph or so miles per hour the B58 is the one pulling harder. The difference becomes startling as the M240i pulls to 260 kph (161 mph) while the M2 is trailing badly. What do you even say to this? The M2 is tuned how the M240i should be tuned and the M240i has the sort of curve the M motor should. What is BMW doing? Do they even know?

    These Tesla drag race videos are getting kind of boring especially when they constantly show the Tesla in the best light possible. Rear wheel drive competition on street rubber of course will struggle against the all electric all wheel drive torque monster. Fortunately this time around we see a car that is well known for its off the line prowess, the 911 Turbo. This is a GIAC tuned 997.2 model with bolt ons. The Porsche rips the Tesla off the line but the Model S hangs in pretty well. The result is a quicker and faster 10.503 @ 127.93 from the Porsche and 10.861 @ 121.77 from the Tesla. What is important to note is that the 911 Turbo needs to be modified to get the win here and in 1500+ density altitude it will suffer a drop off in performance whereas the Tesla which is not relying on air will not.
