    Don't forget to wrap with a quality PPF to protect against UV. There are UV sealants like OptiLens but it doesn't last so PPF is the best way to go since it is UV + abrasion. Well worth the investment.

    Here is a BMW E92 335xi that is running very well. This is an automatic and all wheel drive example on the stock transmission and stock internal N54 motor. Obviously the Precision 6266 single turbo conversion is providing the grunt. Mod list: - Precision Gen 1 journal 6266 - On3 manifold - 7" FMIC - 2.5" charge pipe - Catless downpipes - 44mm wastegate - 50mm BOV - Teflon E85 rated fuel lines - Motiv flex fuel - Stage 2 LPFP - GFP G-force boost controller - XHP Stage 3 AT TCU flash - BMS AT transmission cooler This 335xi is performing well on the highway with performance that is roughly just ahead of a stock BMW F90 M5. If BimmerBoost were to guess, it looks like a 126 trap car. Speaking of which, it runs a stock F90 M5 twice. The first run is very close but in the second run the 335xi opens up a lead after it had its fuel pump replaced. Next up is a C6 Corvette Z06 with unknown mods which opens a lead only for the 335xi to easily pass it. An F13 M6 with a tune is next. The M6 pulls up top. A W204 C63 AMG Black Series with unknown mods tries its luck. The C63 AMG is easily dispatched. The final cars are a pair of Infiniti Q50's. The first of which is an ECUtek FBO tuned example which gets a jump. The 335xi catches and passes. The second Q50 is a JB4 tuned example that is beaten fairly easily. The final run is a three-way but poor editing gets in the way of seeing how it plays out. Nice runs and a 335xi that performs quite well.

    Earlier this year we saw a McLaren 720S with the Pure Turbos M840T hybrid turbo upgrade producing 936 rear wheel horsepower on race gas. Well, it is now joined by yet another McLaren 720S with the same turbo upgrade producing over 900 wheel horsepower. 932 to the rear wheels to be exact: The 720S is still on the stock internals and stock transmission. Not only is this a ton of power for hybrid turbos it points to built motor McLaren 720S motors with aftermarket turbo housings likely easily going well into the 1XXX horsepower range. The M840T is simply an incredible platform.

    The BMW N63/S63 twin turbo 4.4 liter V8 engine architecture is going to start making some big, big horsepower in 2019. With several large turbo options entering the market and port fuel injection options ready to go 1000+ wheel horsepower is going to become commonplace. At quadruple digit levels of output block integrity becomes a concern. That is where RK Autowerks comes in with their sleeved S63, S63TU, and N63TU engine blocks. How much money? $18,500. No, not cheap and a core exchange is required. If you want to make big power you are eventually going to have to address the block.

    The B58 motor is going to see a ton of aftermarket development especially once the Toyota Supra is out in the wild but Pure Turbos is way ahead of the curve with hybrid turbo upgrades. Their Stage I will provide 480+ wheel horsepower depending on supporting mods and the Stage 2 B58 turbo is good for 540+ wheel horsepower on ethanol. It is going to be interesting to see how Pure Turbos carries over their B58 turbo upgrades to the MKV/A90 Toyota Supra platform and if the Supra B58 design poses any upgrade problems. Definitely a great value at $2500 with a core exchange. 542whp @23psi - Custom Billet Compressor wheel - Custom Turbine wheel - CNC Machined - High Speed VSR Balanced - Spools like the stock turbo

    This is not the first time AMS made big power gain claims on a Mercedes twin turbo V8 with their intake system. The difference here though is that AMS backed up their claims with a dyno graph but the gains are so big they are still hard to believe. A +65 horsepower gain to all four wheel after adding the M157 V8 Alpha carbon fiber intake: That is absolutely massive. To be fair that gain comes on a car tuned on MS109 so obviously aggressively tuned on the stock turbochargers and the factory intake becomes a choke point. The gains on 93 octane pump gas are still huge: 42 horsepower picked up at all four wheels but the graph is quite different. On MS109 the higher rpm's are the choke point whereas here on pump gas you see an increase from 2500-5000 rpm. It is hard to explain why the areas of increase are so different on 93 octane and race gas. BenzBoost would like to see an independent result confirming these gains for the intake system as if accurate this is clearly a must have M157 modification.

    DBV2 has some very solid Volkswagen and Audi IS38 turbo upgrade results. Their TBB (triple ball bearing) units in particular impress as DBV2 hit just shy of 500 all wheel horsepower on an Audi S3 2.0 TFSI with the TBB turbo upgrade. Now imagine two of those turbos on an Audi 4.0 TFSI V8. That is exactly what they are developing. For now all we have are teaser photos but expect another 4.0 TFSI V8 turbo upgrade entry in an increasingly crowded sector.

    This is just great data from Dyno Spectrum. You are used to seeing before and after ECU tune results on the tune but Dyno Spectrum went a few steps further and provided the optimal PDK shift points along with an axle torque graph showing torque per gear. People forget gearing has a huge impact on performance and Dyno Spectrum's Carrera T graphs perfectly illustrate this. Let's start with the tune results: The baseline is very high at 400.5 wheel horsepower. This dyno (the World Motorsports Mustang) is highly corrected. A Carrera T will not hit 400 wheel horsepower even on a Dynojet but is closer to the ~360 wheel horsepower range and in the ~340 wheel horsepower range on a Mustang. Do not focus on the peak numbers but on the delta (change) between the baseline and tuned result. The max wheel horsepower gain is 52.15% and peak torque increases by 46.85%. Just a night and day result an anyone with a 991.2 Carrera or Carrera T that is into performance should get a tune. Now, let's look at the axle torque per gear and recommend shift speeds: It should be obvious but notice torque drops per gear. You not have as much torque in 3rd gear as you do in 1st gear despite engine output not changing. This is all due to gearing. Despite the 9A2B6 motor revving to 7500 rpm the optimal shift points are much earlier in each gear as laid out on the graph. As a matter of fact, the optimal shift rpm is below 7000 rpm in every gear except first gear. In order to take advantage of the redline one would need larger turbochargers flowing more air up top and making power until redline. The tiny factory units simply are not capable of doing that and drop off well before 7000 rpm. It is great to see a tuner provide data like this and BoostAddict reached out to Dyno Spectrum to ask how they did it but they are keeping their equations to themselves for now. All tuners should provide readouts like this.

    AK Motorsport has a variety of lightweight subframe applications. This Volkswagen and AUDI MQB subframe is similar to their Nissan GT-R lightweight front subframe in that it is stronger and longer than the factory steel piece. Do not expect huge weight savings but this is definitely something for track guys: No pricing information yet but as for applications the 8V Audi A3 models including the RS3 will benefit as well as the MKVII Golf and MKIII TT models.

    This looks to be a successor to the LaFerrari and rumors has it Ferrari is giving it ~1000 horsepower. That may be 1000 PS which works out to 986 horsepower or maybe they will go even further. Who knows other than Ferrari? What we do know is to expect a hybrid drivetrain with three electric motors. That means all wheel drive with two motors powering the front wheels and one motor powering the rear along with the twin turbo 3.9 liter V8. This will likely be a limited edition toy for people select Ferrari clientele which is perfectly fine. This will also interestingly be the first all wheel drive mid-engine Ferrari.
