    Don't remind me. I'm in mourning. They outplayed them and still lost. F'ing frustrating. I don't want to rain on your parade but I don't see any way the Penguins lose at home.

    Look at those tires. Look 255 to me. You can't expect much from them.

    Anaheim is out, somehow my Sens are going to game 7. I was at the game tonight and it was awesome. Thinking about taking a road trip to Pittsburgh Thursday. Last time I drove that far to see them was in 2007 where they beat Buffalo in game 5 to get to the finals (where they lost badly to Anaheim).

    Totally worth it though. If I had an Aventador I wouldn't even acknowledge the existence of a 3-Series.

    Well, UGR (Underground Racing) is the king of the 1/2 mile. You should already know this if you view this website. In June of last year they pushed a Gallardo to 240.641 miles per hour. In September they topped themselves increasing the 1/2 mile world record to 247.25 with a twin turbo Huracan. Topping 250 was only a matter of time and they did it with a 250.27 mile per hour pass this past weekend. What do you say? Nothing. You just respect it. As far as the modifications UGR tends to keep those details close to heart. We do not know the horsepower or specifications. At this level they only seem to be playing against themselves. The ultimate top dog is the M2K Motorsports Ford GT which does 293.6 in the mile but the all wheel drive Lambos have a traction and shift speed advantage in the 1/2 mile. Either way, cars are getting absurdly fast.

    It depends how you look at it. Is $85k for the quickest production car in the 1/4 mile a lot of money? Absolutely not. Never before has the world's quickest production car been available at such an affordable price point (in today's dollars). If you look at it as $85k for a Dodge Challenger then, sure, it seems like a lot of cash. Maybe you are one of those people who would rather buy a standard Hellcat and modify it yourself. Maybe the Demon's 2.7 liter blower is not big enough for you and you want a 4.5 liter Whipple? What you get for $84,995 from Dodge is a car that will dominate on the dragstrip while being backed by a factory warranty. Dodge is even being pretty funny about the options. The Demon Crate with dragstrip tools and the race gas tune costs $1. Yes, $1. A front passenger seat will cost you $1. What about rear seats? Also $1. Want a trunk liner? That's a dollar too. There are options costing more than a dollar such as a leather interior at $1595, an upgraded audio system at $995, and a $4995 power sunroof that someone has to be absolutely nuts to order. Overall, the Demon is still a huge performance value at $85k. Dodge deserves a ton of praise.

    VTT (Vargas Tuning Technologies) is mostly known on BimmerBoost for their N54 work but their S55 turbo upgrade program is getting going. Really getting going as their Stage 2 turbocharger upgrade set a new stock internal record for the S55 motor at 734 wheel horsepower and 762 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. More details from VTT below: We finally got around to finishing up the testing our on S55 Stage turbo's, and the results as we expected. We picked up the Stock motor S55 power record, previous it was 728, we made 734WHP, and 729WHP on two different pulls this am. We also managed to make 762WTQ on a more aggressive throttle map. Also if anyone wants to say glory pulls, here are 10 runs all above 700WHP from yesterday and this am. The 734WHP, and 729WHP runs were made on the E30 OTS BM3 map, no special tuning, the problem is the E30 scaler is too low up top, and even with PI adding a ton of fuel, we are just plain out of fuel. Dzenno gave us a map with better E85 scaler, more aggressive throttle, and 2-3 degrees less timing, it picked up the tq down low, and it pulls clean all the way up every run. The E30 OTS map is prob a little aggressive timing wise for these boost levels so we wont run it there, custom maps are always better for these levels. As you can see car is making 500WTQ by around 3300, and 700 by 3800K. This is a solid 500+ RPM better spool than the other turbos you see on the market. A big thanks of course To Dzenno at BM3 for the help, its fun working with him again! Also to Terry, Mike at EOS, and Bell intercoolers for the great intercooler. Not to mention the owner who let us use his car as a test bed! There is one S55 making more power at 745WHP (11WHP more), which is a fully built motor, fully ported head, 9 second race car, and one car making more Power / TQ at 763WHP/776WTQ (14WTQ more) and its running a 100 shot of NOS. Impressive? We think so...:eusa-clap: We will be getting this car to the track, and 1/2 mile events very soon. Specs are as follows 2015 BMW M4 DCT Dodson Sportsman Clutch upgrade 100% Stock motor Stock Crank hub VTT Stage2 turbos VTT silicone charge pipes BMS intakes Aftermarket downpipes Catless exhaust EOS V2 top mount PI manifold PFS Double Shot LPFP Upgrade VTT / Bell Air to Water intercooler Custom BM3 flash by Dzenno JB4 100% E85 Boost level 34-35 psi Log: http://www.datazap.me/u/vargasturbotech/vtt-s55-run-34-723whp745wtq?log=0&data=1-4-5-10-12-14-18-24

    This Porsche 991.1 Turbo S belongs to BoostAddict member @sdg1871. His car is tuned with a GIAC Stage IV flash for upgraded turbos. He has a 68mm VTG turbo upgrade from Champion Motorsports along with their intercoolers and a Tubi exhaust. The car is quick especially off the line which shows in the runs below. He easily beats just about everything he runs as nobody can match the launch. Well, only the all wheel drive Jeep Cherokee SRT with over 1000 horsepower can. The two McLarens are easily dispatched: Next up are a pair of GTR's. The blue one has bolt ons. A 997 turbo with unknown mods tries its luck: The only car that poses a real challenge is this Jeep. The 991 fights it off when the Jeep is on low boost but with the boost turned up the Jeep impressively wins. Talk about a stoplight terror:

    Finally got pulled over. I wasn't even trying to speed just driving along and before I knew it the lights were on. Guy said he caught me on radar. So.... what radar detector do I get to prevent this from happening again? Best of the best.

    The proof is in the timeslips, isn't it? You can argue about dyno plots and mix and match results to try to claim one E9X M3 S65 V8 supercharger kit is better than another but it is very difficult to argue against someone trying out two different kits and posting the results from the same car at the same track. That is exactly what BimmerBoost member @dnotorious did. In his own words: The Rotrex blower of the Active Autowerke kit offers much more mid-range torque than the Vortech V3si based ESS-Tuning kit. There is something to be said for area under the curve. Look at his dyno plot: 621 horsepower at the wheels on a Dynocom but look at that torque curve. BimmerBoost has said it once and will say it again, Active Autowerke offers the best looking torque curve for a supercharged S65 V8 in the business. That is of course speaking of a stock internal S65 which the Rotrex blower seems to pair perfectly with. Ok, dyno plots are one thing. What about actual 1/4 mile times? He picked up ~5 miles per hour of trap speed and 3 to 4 tenths of a second on street tires: Feel free to argue with the timeslips but picking up that kind of trap speed is no small feat. Great comparison data and great independent results.

    Here we go again! The US government received a huge settlement from Volkswagen over their diesel scandal and rightfully so. The lawyers are probably the happiest out of anyone involved so why not rinse and repeat? The U.S. is now suing Fiat Chrysler over emissions cheating. The government states that some FCA diesel SUV's and trucks use software to cheat emission tests. This is very similar to the allegations against Volkswagen. FCA's defense is that their software detects changes in temperature and other conditions. Essentially, software tuning that adjusts based on certain parameters as most modern cars do. The question is if the software was set to change parameters if it knew emissions testing was taking place. What will happen? Who knows. FCA stock is already trending downward. It sure feels like FCA won't be the last manufacturer who is forced to defend their diesel tuning practices in court. Source

    I believe it. People have barely scratched the surface of turbo upgrades on the platform too. My next car is going to be a McLaren.

    If he swallows his pride he can make a roster. I kind of want to see Sherman on the Patriots though. I want a repeat. I want Goodell eating shit for two years.
