    Rob Beck contacted BimmerBoost during the week of July 4th regarding the potential for a promotion. Well, BimmerBoost and RB Turbo came to an agreement and we are giving away a set of the new $3100 RB Turbo cast N54 turbochargers. Let's celebrate the freedom to boost! Now, if you do not want a set of the new cast turbos that is fine. You are free to choose from any turbocharger in the RB catalog: TD03 Products- RB OEM: Up to 400whp= $999 MSRP RB OEM Billets: Up to 425whp= $1,149 MSRP RB Ones: 425-475whp= $1,599 MSRP RB Twos: 475-525whp= $1,999 MSRP RB Two Plus: 525-575whp= $2,199 MSRP* TD04 Products- RB Game Finishers (GFs) Standard Cast: 575-650whp (coming Late June 2019)= $3,199 MSRP* RB Game Finishers (GFs) High Flow Cast: 650-700+whp (coming Late May 2019)= $3,199 MSRP* The choice is completely up to you. Just want to refurbish your smoking turbos? That's fine. Want a mild upgrade? Perfectly fine. Want to hit 700 whp with the high flow cast option? Go right ahead. BimmerBoost has done plenty of successful big giveaways with various vendors over the years and this one will be no different. How do you enter? By saying so in this thread. Your rep points at the time of your entry will be recorded. YOU MUST HAVE 10 REP POINTS TO ENTER Every full rep point you gain from your time of entry until the end of the contest is counted as 1 entry. Example: You have 20.5 rep points at the time of entry. You have 100.5 rep points by the time the contest is over. That is 80 entries in the drawing! There is no limit to the number of prizes you can win. That means in theory you can win the first, second, and third place prizes! The more rep points you gain, the better your odds! How do you gain rep points? By creating threads and making good posts. Quality threads or posts also can get a rep point boost by users giving you a thumbs up. If users like your posts, they can give you rep points. The more you contribute, the more points you get! Oh, and your points will carry over to the second contest later in the year if you like! Warning: Low quality posts or spamming can receive a thumbs down and negative points. Do not think you can spam your way to victory. Quality over quantity. Prizes: 1st place: Any RB N54 turbo upgrade of your choice 2nd place: To be announced 3rd place: To be announced Anything else? Yes, this is the first of two big giveaways this year. BimmerBoost is happy to give back to the community (yet again!) with the biggest and best promotions in the industry. The bottom line is we give back more than anyone else along with our vendors and appreciate those of you who have helped make this place what it is. If any other vendor would like to be involved or has something to contribute for promotional purposes, PM me please. Your product absolutely can be added to the prize list. The contest starts now and will end on Thanksgiving. Why so long? RB Turbo is currently backlogged so we will not give away something that does not exist. You would prefer to get a turbo that is a new design and in demand and not some old junk collecting dust on a shelf, right? This also gives you plenty of time to amass entries and you will be able to use your entries in more than one contest be announced. Post, contribute, have fun, and enjoy. More details to come in this thread. A sincere thanks to all our great vendors and members from BimmerBoost and the entire BoostAddict.com Automotive Performance Network.

    This is amusing as it seems Carmax did not know what they were selling. The F82 M4 GTS is a limited edition hardcore M car that was sold with an MSRP or $134,200. Yes, way overpriced. Not only was it overpriced but dealers would charge a markup pushing the price to a 1/4 million dollars. Seriously. Imagine being the guy who paid $250k for an M4 GTS only see to Carmax give one away for $60-something thousand: An M4 GTS for even sticker is too much money but for around half the price with a few thousand miles? Now that's a good buy. Props to this gentlemen and Carmax for not knowing what an M4 GTS is and not gouging.

    Top Gear decided to compare four popular performance sport sedans in a straight line. The straight line game being the main game for Teslas. At least Top Gear recognizes this and they made the drag race longer so as not to tailor it to the low end torque strength of electric cars like others do to make a headline. A 1/2 mile is more like it. Yet, Top Gear still fudged the whole thing for fake drama. Now, the Tesla gets a huge lead and it does not look like any of the other cars truly launched. This is obviously sensationalized which is a bit lame. Right on cue the Mercedes-AMG C63 S starts to run the Tesla down. It is a photo finish. A manufactured photo finish. You're better than this Top Gear. Also try including some actual performance metrics for the cars involved. Don't insult our intelligence.

    Finally! This is what the automotive world waited for this month and really what every car enthusiast on the internet was waiting to see today. Chevrolet is finally lifting the veil on the mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Stingray although these photos leaked early. So, what do you think? Do you like the styling? It borrows quite a bit from Ferrari but meshes it with Chevrolet's own modern styling language. In some areas it looks stunning. In some it looks somewhat plasticky and cheap. Really one will need to see it in person and we need higher resolution photos as well. Those will come shortly so come back and check the page for more photos. The 6.2 liter LT2 V8 output is 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. There is no manual option and an 8-speed dual clutch handles gear changes. There is an optional Z51 package said to offer a sport exhaust, upgraded brakes, and some cooling upgrades as well. The official press release from GM should have all the details once it is posted. Let the debate over the new mid-engine Corvette begin.

    California is a lost cause. Whomever thought this was a good idea needs to be removed immediately from government work. Part of the appeal of a car for many is doing your own work (whatever that may entail) in the comfort of your own garage. Well, in Sacramento county you may not do that. You may not work on a friend's car. You may not use tools that are not 'normally' in your garage. You may only do what they define as 'minor' automotive repair. Violate any of the following and you will be fined: Using tools not normally found in a residence; Conducted on vehicles registered to persons, not currently residing on the lot or parcel; Conducted outside a fully enclosed garage and resulting in any vehicle being inoperable for a period in excess of twenty-four hours. They even provide a time limit for how long the work can take! Working on your motor and downtime might be longer than 24 hours while you wait for a part? Sorry, that's a violation and a fine. What is the reasoning for this? Sacramento argues certain auto chemicals might harm the environment. See what all that environmental gibberish government officials push really comes down to? Control. You can read all about this overreaching government garbage here: http://www.code-enforcement.saccounty.net/Programs/Pages/AutoRepair.aspx

    This is amusing as the loudmouth Hellcat owner bit off more than he could chew. The Hellcat is spraying a 200 shot or so and apparently the torque (or the laughing gas) went to the guy's head as he demands a 50-150 race. The payoff is supposed to be a full tank of gas. Maybe he doesn't know what a McLaren 720S costs but owners are probably not having trouble keeping the gas tank full. The McLaren 720S has a tune and downpipes and the race is not even what you can call a race. This is just an amusing smackdown.

    This is the strongest turbocharged E92 M3 out there and there are not exactly many turbo E92 M3's to begin with. Why? Few tuners have been able to turbo the S65 and no tuner has accomplished what Gintani has with turbocharging (or supercharging) on the platform. They certainly deserve to be proud of this achievement and continuing to blaze the trail for the S65 V8. 858.9 wheel horsepower and 649 lb-t of torque at the rear the wheels at only 15 psi of boost on pump E85: Yep, it's a very efficient motor. This is a built motor but what recipe Gintani is using to keep this thing together they are not saying. Additionally, keep in mind they ran the car in 90 degree summer weather. There is more in it but they are keeping it conservative for now. More details to come.

    BimmerBoost member @karel has done some very interesting builds over the years but if you are not following his Nued M4 DTM thread on the BimmerBoost forums you are missing out. Here is a quick recap of the project. He started with scanning an M4 DTM toy race car. Yes, seriously. He then went to work from there from scratch and honestly the project is just mind blowing. There are two vlogs posted below that go into some of the work but you can see how it is coming along. Apparently a supercharged built motor S65 V8 will be at the heart of the car. Just enjoy this masterpiece in progress.

    The camera car in this video is a BMW F80 M3 tuned by @F80Paul on E85 so safe to say the stock turbos are pushed pretty hard. It definitely impresses in its performance though running a JB4 tuned F90 M5 with catless downpipes, a 600 wheel horsepower BMW F82 M4, and 625 whp F80 M3 flash tuned. The E85 tuned F80 M3 camera car is pretty stout. The first run against the JB4 tuned F90 M5 the F80 M3 wins easily. The second run features a 600 whp F82 M4 and the F90 M5. The camera car F80 M3 wins again and the F90 is beaten by both. The third run is another run against the F90 M5 which the F80 camera car again wins easily. Last but not least is a F80 M3 said to make 625 whp and the F90 M5 again. The M5 is the slowest of the trio and the camera car again pulls. Certainly impressive performance for what is said to be an E85 tuned F80 M3 on the stock turbos.

    You already know both of these cars are basically the same thing. The main difference is the Z4 is a soft top convertible while the new Supra is a coupe based on the Z4. Sure, there may be some tuning differences here and there but basically it's the same thing. What would be nice is to see a dyno overlay between the two and a curb weight measurement. As this is Carwow we will get no meaningful data to really show where these cars differ. How does the drag race go? The Supra gets a better launch and pulls away. Decisively at that. The Supra finishes a half second quicker (no trap speeds given) with a 12.0 elapsed quarter mile time. They do the drag race over again and while the Z4 starts better this time it still loses. The roll race is a mess again with them waiting for the gearboxes to kick down rather than just put the car in the correct gear for 50 miles per hour. Someone needs to slap some sense into these people. The Supra pulls away but if they did a 60-130 GPS measurement the kickdown element would be avoided entirely. So, the Supra is quicker despite the terrible testing from Carwow once again.

    This is an unfortunate part of racing as accidents do happen. This is why you take it to the track though where medical personnel and safety precautions are in place. Even if you take every precaution a tire can still blow out and you can still hit the person in the lane next to you. It looks like a tire let go past 100 miles per hour here and the CES Motorsport E92 335i unfortunately took out the Nissan GT-R next to it. Fortunately, everyone walked away and nobody else was hurt and no innocent bystander was hit. This is simply a part of racing. You live to race another day.

    Get used to seeing more videos like this as dashcams proliferate. Hence why it is being shown to you so you do not end up being the one posted. We all like to stretch our cars' legs from time to time but doing so in daytime traffic on the public highway is a stupid idea that may not just hurt you but someone else. Additionally, there is no way for the M3 or S8 owners to say they were not racing. The video footage (from the rear and front) is what it is. Be smart out there people.

    Here is an interesting dyno overview of a BMW F90 M5 S63TU V8 on an all wheel drive Dynojet. This comes from our friends at Eurocharged Canada. The baseline numbers are very stout with the stock tune showing 612 horsepower and 593 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels. Keep in mind that the baseline is with catless downpipes and an intake. They then ran the car with a JB4 on a high boost map. The specific JB4 map was not stated. The result is 673 horsepower and 716 lb-ft of torque at all four wheel. Now comes the Eurocharged flash tune: You will notice the flash tune and JB4 tune have the same curve until 5000 rpm. After that, the flash is making more power and torque hitting 729 horsepower at all four wheels. Now, to be fair to BMS a JB4 benefits from dyno calibration as well. It's an interesting overlay but do not take this to mean flash tunes alway make more power. Often, we see the best BMW outputs with a JB4 plus a back end flash tune working in concert.

    Californians had the opportunity to repeal a gas tax that added 12 cents per gallon to their gasoline. They failed to do so and now the state is levying another tax on top of that increase of 5.6 cents per gallon. That means starting July 1st Californians will pay on average $1.20 more per gallon than the nationwide price for gas. How long until yet another tax is levied on? At this rate, not long at all.

    Now this is cooking! How about a Porsche 991.1 Turbo making 948 horsepower to all four wheels and tuned on the factory ecu? Also, achieving that number on the stock engine internals and the factory transmission? That is what SRM (Silly Rabbit Motorsport) hit with their SRM1000 package and their Porsche 991.1 Turbo. There are not many details on this package and what you will see is a PorscheBoost exclusive. Let's start with the graph: 948 to the wheels on a Mustang is not a joke. Keep in mind this is done on the World Motorsports Mustang which reads closer to a Dynojet. A ton of power on the factory the engine internals and the factory transmission regardless. Fuel is supplied with supplemental port injection. ID1700 injectors and the SRM brushless fuel pump upgrade. This car will be dyno'd again shortly but the current result is fantastic. More SRM1000 details to come after the next dyno session.

    There were those who questioned if Porsche would really cut a lot of weight out of the 991.2 with the Carrera T model. Well, here is the proof that Porsche delivered and that the weight loss claims were not just marketing. This Porsche 911 Carrera T with PCCB's and a lightweight battery filled with a 1/2 tank of gas comes in at 3074 pounds: It also has an aftermarket muffler which is a factor but the point really is that you can have a modern 911 that weighs 30XX pounds. If the owner wanted to, he could probably drop it into the 29XX pound range which is simply incredible. For those who do not have a 991.2 Carrera T but have a 991.2 Carrera, getting the car to this weight level will not be easy but is possible. Assuming one cuts the weight to the 30XX range that is potentially a 911 Carrera that weighs 500 pounds less than a Turbo coupe model. A very large difference in the real world.

    This is a test many of us were waiting for as it includes popular summer performance street tires most enthusiasts run on their own cars but it includes the big new entry into the category. That would be the Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport. Keep in mind this is not the R-Compound Eagle F1 Supersport R or RS. This is the standard tire designed for street driving as tested by Tyre Reviews on their F87 M2 test car. Tire sizes are 245/35/19 front and 265/35/19 rear. The test categories are dry and wet handling, braking, aquaplane resistance, noise, comfort, wear, and subjective ratings. Tires tested: Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport Michelin Pilot Sport 4S Continental SportContact 6 Vredestein Ultrac Vorti Falken Azenis FK510 Kumho Ecsta PS91 Toyo Proxes Sport Accelera PHI Dry: Wet: It is interesting to note the Goodyears are not the best dry handling tire but right up there with the best. Their wet handling tops everyone else significantly though. The new Goodyear tire offers the best combination of wet and dry handling performance. For those who want a high performance tire but are in an area where it rains often, this tire may be a savior for you. This does not come without its downsides. The Goodyears are loud and not as comfortable as competitors: Something else that is very important to note. The Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperSport is the lightest tire of the group: Despite the downsides the Goodyear Eagle F1 wins this shootout. This bodes very well for the higher performance R and RS variants. Porsche afterall recently switched the 991.2 GT2 RS tire recommendation to the F1 RS.
