    BMW's sequential manual gearbox debuted with the E36 generation 3-Series. It was not until the E46 M3 that US BMW enthusiasts were able to sample the SMG gearbox with the SMG II. That box was basically the same transmission as the 6-speed manual but with hydraulically actuated gear shifting. With the E60 M5 BMW debuted SMG III which was a ground up sequential manual design. The seven speeds offered tight ratios and the SMG III shifted quickly. However, for the US market BMW decided to offer a 6-speed manual option. This marked one of the few times that US market enthusiasts received something the rest of the world did not. So how do the two gearboxes fare against one another? In theory, at higher speeds the SMG and manual should be pretty close. This is not precisely scientific as although both cars have S85 V10 engines and similar mods the modifications are not the exact same and the M6 is slightly lighter. The M6 just pulls away during the runs. It certainly looks like the Evolve headers are providing a large benefit. We sure would like to see that 516 whp Dynojet graph.

    Ok, it's hard to hate this swap. First of all, Porsche neuters the Cayman to keep it from stepping on the 911's toes and that is a load of BS. Imagine if the Cayman had the naturally aspirated power to compliment the brilliant chassis? Well, wonder no more. Power by the Hour Performance decided to do a Cayman swap nobody else had done. They chose the Ford Mustang Coyote 5.0 liter V8 and the engine certainly is a great naturally aspirated candidate. Not only does it look amazing sitting in the middle of the car it finally gives the Cayman the power and torque it deserves without a sacrifice in response. How does 424 horsepower and 364 lb-ft of torque at the wheels sound? Especially when you factor in the increase over the factory Porsche flat-6 baseline at 257 horsepower and 218 lb-ft of torque. Speaking of sound just listen to the video below. This is just a badass Cayman. The only thing that could have made it better would be if they went with a Voodoo V8. Something tells us after seeing this swap there is a person out there willing to try exactly that.

    The Liberty Walk widebody kits tend to be a love it or hate it thing. Aerodynamically they certainly aren't helping performance but many people who get the kits are going more for looks and attention than functionality. This Challenger certainly makes a statement. However you may feel about the widebody kit the rims are killer. The Strasse Forged SV8 wheels fill out the wide arches and the brushed ultrasonic blue centers looks absolutely fantastic. The blue works very well against the black car. Is it a bit much? Is it just right? Opinions will be all over the place. What is certain is the rims add an extra flair to this build. Forged Wheel Specs: SV8 Performance Series SM -Gloss Brushed Blue Centers -Gloss Black Lips -Gloss Black Barrels -Gloss Black Hardware -Weight Reduction Pocketing 20×10 | 20×12 Tire Specs: Pirelli P Zero Front: 245/30/20 Rear: 325/25/21

    Never paid MSRP and I don't intend to start now. I do like the orange but I think I'll go with yellow.

    Coupe...For me, it would be because some organizations ban verts from their track days. Also with what you will be doing with the car, dragstrip and airstrip racing. Coupe is a lot safer. Go all out and get Lava Orange. Shoot for 10% off msrp, I have seen on the forums 8% is not too hard to get.

    I'm set on a 991.2. The car is awesome, lightweight, has great mod potential, and is relatively exclusive. I think it's a good choice for me and the forum as well. I plan to put in an order next month. So, the question is, coupe or convertible? Now, I lean towards coupe. It's lighter and I'm performance oriented. This video should make it easy: Then I consider that I live minutes from the beach, I'm single, and bringing the top down tends to get women to bring their tops down: I'll probably end up with the coupe but damn does the convertible look good.

    Apparently they had to sedate him so they could do xrays and MRIs. That's exceedingly rare and Tedy is a tough, tough SOB. I'd imagine it's absolutely excruciating. Not sure if I trust AP for 16 games at this point in his career. I know he was productive statistically last yr (maybe that's all that really matters in fantasy) but his legs looked tired down the stretch. Crazy how fast NFL season outlooks can change. Some had the Vikes as contenders.

    Man this screws up some draft strategies. I mean, the Vikings passing game obviously tanks. Can you really lean on Adrian Peterson for a whole season? I guess he's fresher than he would be otherwise thanks to that suspension.

    Appreciably worse than what Cruz has endured. If I recall Cruz didn't suffer any bone damage; it was a 'clean' tendon/ligament tear. Don't quote me on that. Bridgewater's knee came out of the joint. If that's hard to imagine, it's because that isn't supposed to happen. Shoulders, elbows...Those come out of the socket with sports mechanisms. But the knee? It gets ugly when it slides forwards like that. I think Tedy will play again, kid is tough as nails and as well-respected as any young player in the league. As to how long it'll be, and how effective he'll be...It's a tossup.
