Sticky created the thread Hennessey trying to challenge UGR? HPE700 twin turbo 458 Italia from Hennessey.
" The Ferrari forced induction landscape is rather small. There are not many cars produced to begin with and it is not exactly easy to tune something like a 458 Italia for a forced induction setup. Most owners also are not going to tinker with their Ferrari. UGR (Underground Racing) is really the only company with results on the platform up to this point.


So, enter Hennessey who as usual makes bold claims but with little substance. The pictures and videos certainly show what is a twin turbocharged 458. There is a short video that shows the car doing a WOT burst and it certainly sounds turbocharged. So where is the dynograph especially when one of the videos shows the car on a dyno?

In Hennessey's defense UGR has not provided a graph either for their twin turbo kit which they claim puts out 700 wheel horsepower. However, UGR has built up a very solid reputation with their work in the Lamborghini world. Hennessey's reputation does not get the benefit of the doubt to say the least.

Regardless, Hennessey claims 738 horsepower along with 532 lb-ft of torque for the kit. He also claims a 10.5 @ 137 mile per hour quarter mile which just like the horsepower claim is unsubstantiated. It is nothing more than an educated guess as a 458 Italia with a couple turbos should easily be capable of that performance and then some. "

" Ohlins + JRZ are both very high quality coilovers, Nitron + KWs aren't solid. In addition to that, I'd look at solid bushings, toe arms to pair with your DEFIV lockdown kit. "

benzy89 replied to the thread Renntech BMW N54 Flash Tuning, 100+ wheel horsepower.
" $1,500 might fly on the E9x M3 market (basically the cost of an ESS N/A Tune + Test Pipes), but for a Stage 1/FMIC Flash is way overpriced, especially for a platform that's used market price is $15-25k. "

Close...monsanto fucks with farmers who happen to be near other farmers growing gmo crops. When the wind blows over the gmo plants begin to grow on their fields amd eventually monsanto demands that they pay royalties even though they didnt intentionally plant something derived from their labs "

Sticky created the thread GIAC releases Stage I software tuning for the 2014 B8 Audi A4 and Allroad 2.0T motor, 43 wheel horsepower increase.
" Good work here from GIAC for the 2014 A4 and Allroad models with 2.0T motors. GIAC managed to get some nice gains on 91 octane pump gas. The A4 test car put down 172 wheel horsepower and 213 pound-feet of torque completely stock on the AWE-Tuning Mustang dyno at all four wheels. What did the GIAC tune increase this to? 215 wheel horsepower and 254 lb-ft of torque for gains of 43 horsepower and 41 lb-ft of torque respectively.

This A4 is a manual car and the numbers for an automatic will likely be a bit lower. GIAC also has a flash-loader available with a 100 octane race gas map (not dyno'd for whatever reason) as well as 'stock' and 'valet' mode for the situations that warrant it.

The flash loader is not mandatory at $650. You can opt for a single map without the convenience of switching maps for $495.00. The convenience and safety offered with multiple maps and hand held flash loading more than warrants the price difference.
