    Interesting past versus the future matchup here. The Tesla P85 Model S as you well know is completely electric. It is the highest performance car in the Tesla lineup until the new all wheel drive Model S P85D hits with its 691 horsepower. As you are about to see though, the rear wheel drive P85 Model S with its 470 horsepower is no slouch. While the Tesla may be the pinnacle of commercial electric automotive drivetrain technology the G-Wagon is a very different proposition. It is big, heavy, and it definitely releases a bit of exhaust gas into the air when the 5.5 liter twin turbo V8 is called on to move its 5800 pound mass. The G-Wagon has a modern twin turbo V8 from Mercedes-AMG under the hood but the basic design of the G is now over three decades old. These are two very different vehicles and that is what makes this run so much fun to see. The Tesla wins the drag race although based on the trap speed it sure seems like it lets off a little bit. 98 miles per hour? We have seen much faster results than that from it on the strip. Regarding the G63 13.19 @ 106.87 that is about what one should expect from the stock M157 powered G63. Throw a tune on the G63 and the outcome changes. You could also up the voltage to the motor in the Tesla. Cars like the Model S are the future. Thankfully you can curb greenhouse gas emissions and still go fast at the same time.

    What do they cost? I've only bought Bosch n54 coils, and they seem to be just fine. I'd only buy others if it was proven that they had a better longevity or something.

    Running an ethanol mix can/will definitely improve spool characteristics.

    Looks good. Can E50 inflate that curve prior to 4K RPM? MOTIV Motorsport

    Kit is Truly Beautiful. when receiving the kit i was impressed. Quality is top notch, and Customer support was great every question was answered promptly. This is the first Automatic i believe with the AD engineering kit. Waterpipe is the only difference. so make sure you specify when kit is ordered. Installation was not bad at all, subframe/motor does need to be removed to get the kit installed. I visualized getting it mounted while motor was in the car. And it may be possible but far more elbow room dropping the subframe/motor. Well thought out kit when installing the down pipe. i was going to leave the vband loose to line it up with the exhaust. however there was a mark on the Exhaust housing and down pipe for alignment. That was probably the most appreciative part of the install :) Motor mount is nifty. as it does add a bit of NVH but is expected from solid mount. but saves a butt load of room. so would be a nice addition to any DIYer needing extra room. After the final assembly the power-train fit like a glove! Intercooler piping was in the same placement and on point. so any intercooler will fit no problem. all in all i was happy with the kit, Videos don't do justice on how loud the car is under load. makes me smile every damn time. Wastegate dump is bad ass and fun. Want to thank Jake for spending the time to get it dynotuned on his friday night. And Todd for everything he helped with. Along with Andy for his badd ass fabrication. Here are some images. Dyno video, and a conservative dyno. O2s were pretty much fried and spark plugs as well. so we stopped at 470hp.

    I still remember the original Fifth Gear review with Tiff. You would think it is just a Gallardo with a new body on it, but only 15% parts were shared.

    Only thing that will sell the ESS piggy is their name. The JB4 is better in all areas, with many more features.

    9180 i don't think is much wider... and i would assume if the slightly smaller one fits, so would the 9180?

    Kit includes the carbon fiber intake. Hot side kit is $6900 and complete kit is $8500 (Hot side kit plus intercooler, ic piping, chargepipe, and tial bov). Kit comes standard with a pte 6262 JB which is capable of 700hp. Ball bearing and 67mm upgrades are available at an additional cost. This 6262 kit has made 550hp on a dyno dynamic on 92oct and cobb.Any numbers past that will require higher octane fuel and the 3.5bar map.

    Sorry I do not have the dyno sheet. But I will get one when it's completely dial in. Thanks Todd, its a blast to drive it now even when it's not fully dial in. Jake just sent me a 2nd revision so I will let her rip and report back soon. I will have to let andy_divers get back to you on the pricing and the kit capability. But the kit does come with the carbon fiber intake as well as every nuts bolts clamps etc. you need to install the kit. This kit is a complete plug and play kit, but you need an aftermarket intercooler and charge pipe. Thanks man!

    There are differences of course but it is basically the Gallardo platform. It really won't be any different with second gen car. Audi will modify the Huracan structure too.

    A couple questions: At what power level is the kit capable of? Does the kit come with the CF intake? What was the price of the kit without install cost?

    Ooops you're right, good eye. They had the Mondavi Private Selection Heritage Red as well as the Mondavi Reserve, I tried both and screwed up with my notes.

    Hmmm, I think we can do that with my setup on the current 6767. I did 477whp on wg boost 12-13 psi e40 blend. Kinda what I'm leaning towards as well with full e85 is hard to believe without any other fueling aid. For a stock frame setup it even gets harder to believe because the power comes so much sooner. The hpfp shouldn't be able to keep up with that power at low RPM. Something else looks weird in this graph as well. The power doesn't look like a regular stock frame setup, the power is very gradual like like a SC setup. Idk, weird. No worries brotha, he is just stating facts that he knows of and so are the rest of us. It seems plausible because with my filter remove on my top mount no changes to tuning it added 20-30 whp just there. Hopefully he will have his new motor in by NFZ in 2 weeks so we can all play. We will have another VM top mount there to play as well. 6467.84AR on AT tranny, it will be a good comparison between him and Ando 6465 1.00AR on AT tranny.
