    This is absolutely incredible. Not only because the numbers are strong but because there is no supplemental methanol injection involved or port fuel injection for that matter. This B58 motor is still on the factory fuel system. That makes the 534 wheel horsepower and 501 lb-ft of torque at the wheels all the more impressive: Big Boost Turbo hits these figures with their Stage 3 B58 turbo upgrade, BMS intake, a catless downpipe, and a JB4: BMS previously stated the B58 has a fueling cap around 400 whp so how they are comfortably exceeding that number is anyone's guess. The B58's tuning future sure is looking bright though.

    Looks like they are finally testing base cars with GIAC software. Not sure how they are dyno'ing without the front wheels moving: <iframe src="https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F48483736228%2Fvideos%2F10154618614791229%2F&show_text=0&width=560" width="560" height="315" style="border:none;overflow:hidden" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" allowFullScreen="true"></iframe>

    It revs higher, they changed the injector placement, it's lighter, plasma coated cylinder bores, higher fuel pressure, refined intake ports, and a bunch of stuff I'm sure I'm missing.

    It's got me thinking though.... even though it's got a little less displacement (3.0 vs 3.8) how has the 9A2 motor advanced beyond the 3.8 turbo engine that came out 7 yrs ago (2010)?

    interesting draft last night. 3qbs in top 12 picks (in a weak QB class) 2 hbs in the top 8 (McCaffrey taken way too early imo) Offense heavy at the front of the draft in what was considered to be a weak offensive draft and a strong defensive class. Of course my Cowboys grab a dude named Taco. And Im not sure what exactly Browns are doing. Sure they picked up some nice guys (That TE may have been a reach though, especially since they had to trade up) But they passed on Qbs again, when that is their biggest glaring need. Watson at #12 coulda been a nice pickup. At some point you need to realize that having a ton of 1st round picks isnt going to win anything when you dont have a QB. And Deshaun Watson is the winner of the 1st round. Went from being a Brown to being a Texan with one trade.

    This is good news and as PorscheBoost expected. Dodson has a PDK transmission upgrade for the all wheel drive Porsche 991.1 and 991.2 generation 911 Turbo models. The upgrade retails for $10k and requires a roughly two week turnaround time. PorscheBoost inquired if the Dodson 911 Turbo upgrade would carry over to 991.2 Carrera PDK models including those that are RWD drive: If you have a 4WD or RWD PDK 991.2 and are worried about running too much torque through the transmission with upgrades Dodson has you covered. The only thing holding 991.2 Carrera models back right now is the lack of engine upgrade options on the market. That will be changing shortly if PorscheBoost has anything to say about it. Details of the Upgrade: 10 Plate Build Changes the clutch from sealed clutch unit to serviceable clutch for this and future upgrades Quality Machined billet high grade hardened baskets High grade billet steel lid and splines with billet turned cover Quality Exedy Frictions Designed for up to 950nm torque Each clutch is custom hand built to exact tolerances International collect and return upgrade service

    Here is a very well done rendering of the upcoming F90 M5. We are inching closer to the official reveal. What do we know? No dual clutch transmission but instead a ZF sourced automatic. Also standard all wheel drive with a 100% rear wheel drive mode which should making getting heat into the rear tires easy. What else? The S63TU 4.4 liter V8 will be tweaked somewhat which is honestly the best thing about the M5. BMW will offer the most displacement out of its German rivals. When was the last time BMW M could say that? Imagine stroking one to 5.0 liters. The truth is BMW is already getting 600+ horsepower out of the S63TU so it will be interesting to see how much more they push it. They will likely change out the turbochargers for bigger units. This car is going to be a dragster. That is fine. That seems to be what people want. All wheel drive solves the problem of F10 M5 owners whining they can't get traction from a stop. Who cares if the car will be nose heavy now? Who cares if the manual is dead? Who cares about 50/50 weight distribution? Also, will BMW actually be able to make it lighter? Doubtful. The F90 M5 will be the most radical departure yet from the traditional M5 formula yet the most conformist M5 at the same time.

    Naturally aspirated AMG V8 against the BMW's 3.0 liter twin turbo I6. Both motors benefit greatly from tuning as we all know. The W204 C63 AMG is heavier than the 335xi by roughly 500 pounds but 6.2 liters of displacement helps move it. It also has the P31 package which means stronger engine internals borrowed from the M159 and a more aggressive factory tune. The 335xi is a manual example with an MHD Stage 2 flash. Nothing is stated about any other bolt on modifications. They start with a dig race and how it should play out is the 335xi should get a lead with the M156 top end then coming into play. That is exactly how it goes. That means in the next race when they go from a roll the C63 should have the advantage once traction is removed from the equation. That it does, it pulls a couple cars. They do another dig race and the 335xi gets out in front only for the C63 to make up the ground and pass again up top. Solid runs all around.

    There is still something to be said for the naturally aspirated performance motor. Yes, turbo engine have basically taken over but no matter how good they get they will not match the response of the naturally aspirated engine or that beautiful high rpm shriek as it pulls with ever increasing urgency to the lofty redline. The new 4.0 liter 991.2 GT3 is the best iteration yet. It makes 493 horsepower which is the same as the 991.2 GT3 RS 4.0 except it revs higher to 9000 rpm. This is the same redline as the 991.2 GT3 3.8 motor. It is simply a phenomenal powerplant. Porsche changed the crank, bearings, pistons, rings, added a new liner material, etc. They are pushing the design to the absolute limit. Porsche also fixed their major mistake which was not offering a manual transmission option. The GT3 is not about acceleration or just numbers. It is about the driving experience. If a car like a GT3 does not deserve a manual, what car does? The reviewers below fall in love with the car and how can you not? The sound, the handling, the response, the steering feel, etc., all combine to make the most glorious naturally aspirated 911 ever built. As an owner of a turbocharged 911 I absolutely love the car but I lust after the GT3. It does not matter how good these turbo engines get the torque down low does not make me forget what it is like to rev out a naturally aspirated performance motor to redline and the satisfaction of hitting that perfect upshift. The turbo engine does not offer that as power and torque drop off well before redline. It just does not feel as exciting. It also does not offer the same throttle response or sound. The GT3 just engrosses you in the experience all around. You are convinced you are in a race car for the road because that is basically what it is. There is room for both on the market. Porsche should be commended for not just scrapping the naturally aspirated engine completely but giving buyers the choice. That is what a company that makes enthusiast vehicles centered around the driving experience is supposed to do.
