    This is just ridiculous. Great to see more Dynojet results for the new S58 motor. The baseline is at the rear wheels (expect lower AWHP figures) on 91 octane pump fuel. Peak figures of 488 wheel horsepower and 445 lb-ft of wheel torque are not too shabby and the S58 is clearly underrated. Add in a flash tune and splash in some ethanol for an E30 blend and the numbers skyrocket: 612 horsepower and 581 lb-ft of torque tune only this early is insane. BMW clearly wanted to make a statement with the S58 and they left plenty on the table for tuners. What kind of numbers will hybrid turbos produce? 800+? Bring on the G80 M3 already BMW!

    Independent 1/4 mile times are the way to go in order to get an accurate performance assessment. In this case a completely stock new BMW F92 M8 Competition is running the new Ford Shelby GT500 which has its passenger seat removed and a resonator delete. This should be a pretty good matchup on paper with the GT500 having the stronger top end. The M8 obviously benefits from all wheel drive. The weight between the two is close but the GT500 has a dual clutch box sending power to the rear wheels. A red light (the first of three) for the M8 but the GT500 does start to chase it down. Impressively the GT500 is quicker and faster despite the worse 60 foot: They hook better on the second run but the GT500 wins again: The GT500 clearly shows it is the quicker and faster car. That built in line-lock sure is handy.

    The top mount twin turbo Audi 4.0 EA824 V8 features a twin scroll turbo manifold design. If you do not know what a twin scroll turbocharger design does or how it works click here but the idea is for the turbocharger to get extra exhaust pulses in one housing. CTS Turbos is designing their single scroll manifolds for the 4.0 TFSI V8. The idea obviously is to go for maximum power at the sacrifice of some spool and response. In theory this should also allow some additional turbocharger choices. For now though, this is theory as CTS Turbos does not have a working example of their manifolds with the Garrett CHRA combos mentioned: Certainly something to watch and hopefully an update on the progress comes soon.

    Porsche is being praised for their Super Bowl commercial which somewhat comically was released well before the Super Bowl. These days you can get tons of views for your Super Bowl ad without people even needing to wait to see it during the game. That is the power of Super Bowl advertising and while the ad is pretty cool it seems Porsche fans studied it quite closely and found something. At the :43 mark you see a blue 911 that appears to be the new GT3. The wing certainly matches test mules. Just a small teaser but cool to see it in what is a fun Porsche ad.

    PureBoost is a German tuner many of you are aware of. They work with MHD and suffice it to say their BMW F90 M5 S63TU2 tuning results using the MHD system are impressive. On E30 ethanol they managed to top 800 PS or metric horsepower. This is a MAHA graph. It is a conservative but popular and high quality dynamometer: They showed a peak of 1000+ newton-meters in subsequent runs but we did not get that full graph. 991 Nm translates to 731 lb-ft. Go further with torque and reliability concerns regarding the connecting rods arise. The torque curve is very nice as is the horsepower curve. They mirror the factory curves but with much more meat. Great to see custom tuning results using MHD on the platform and how robust the MHD system is becoming.

    GTR's are cool but I agree they are kinda over rated. They used to be the affordable supercar killer and monster tuner car but really anything over mild bolt ons where you start to risk the stock tranny is not worth it to me. The new 991.2's and older Turbo's are much much more appealing to me and the drive train can take a beating stock. Also, new GTR's price keeps creeping up. In 2008 they were a deal at $69k but now $113k base or $210k for a Nismo!

    This race features the standard Dodge Challenger Hellcat. Not the Redeye, not the Demon. Both of those models are indeed more powerful and faster but the host claims on an unprepped surface they aren't. Well, duh. Still, they offer a better matchup with the GT500. While Hellcats are one-trick ponies the GT500 is not. It can lap with the best of them. The GT500 destroys the Hellcat in a straight line and the beating would be worse around the track. Bring at least a Hellcat Redeye to this fight if drag racing...

    We're excited to announce our Engine Control Unit (ECU) Upgrades are now available for the Audi RS5 (B9) 2.9 TFSI engine with the Bosch MG1 ECU! Expect massive gains with 488-550 HP and 537-606 FT-LBS of torque on tap, depending on octane, from this simple software upgrade. Product Page Product Page Product Page Our new suite of MG1 ECU software comes after months of extensive research and development that is typically absent from the aftermarket. Our upgrade makes the engine more powerful and more exciting. We’ve extensively calibrated the system to work flawlessly on the track, while retaining safety routines to protect your engine in the most demanding scenarios. This was all made possible by our engineering team's pursuit of perfection. Development vehicles were outfitted with additional sensors, including turbo shaft speed sensors, thermocouples, transducers, and more, along with our high speed direct RAM logging equipment, to feed valuable data to the team for analysis. After track days, acceleration tests, and dyno sessions, we created new calibrations that are fine tuned for several octanes, including ethanol, and contain hundreds of map changes, with a vast array of safety features built in. Dynos Our product page features 91, 93, 100, 104, and E60-E85 dyno graphs at the crank, wheels, and the full gain over the stock. Visit our product page to toggle through the graphs: Product Page Product Page Product Page Power Figures 444 HP / 443 FT-LBS - As reported by Audi 458 HP / 469 FT-LBS - As measured by APR 488 HP / 537 FT-LBS with +75 HP and +98 FT-LBS Max Gain - APR Stage 1 91 498 HP / 556 FT-LBS with +90 HP and +118 FT-LBS Max Gain - APR Stage 1 93 524 HP / 581 FT-LBS with +115 HP and +143 FT-LBS Max Gain - APR Stage 1 100 532 HP / 606 FT-LBS with +129 HP and +168 FT-LBS Max Gain - APR Stage 1 104 550 HP / 569 FT-LBS with +104 HP and +123 FT-LBS Max Gain - APR Stage 1 E60-E85 How to Purchase This ECU must first be unlocked before software can be installed either by APR or an APR Dealer.

    Considering that this normal GT with a 2650 and kong intercooler ran a 8.72 @ 158 mph I would say a bolt on GT500 should be able to handle even a tuned 720S.
