    The back and forth on the S55 platform regarding the output world record sure is fun for BimmerBoost to watch. It was just earlier this month that Kratos hit 1150.3 rear wheel horsepower which topped RK-Tunes who formerly held the record at 1087.9. Well, RK-Tunes wanted the title back and the S55 output world record now stands at 1158.6 on a Dynojet in STD correction: Now, these are two very difference approaches. Kratos is obviously building a kit that goes in the stock location with twins whereas RK-Tunes has a big single sticking out of the hood. Jordan of RK-Tunes did not state the boost pressure but only that they are at 58% duty cycle. Mod list again: Motor Assembled in house by RK-Tunes Pauter rods ARP head studs Wiseco Maximum PSI Spec Pistons Maximum PSI Keyed Crank Hub Custom Top Mount manifold by Ricky at 88 Lab Dodson Clutches DSS Driveshaft and Axles Treadstone 4.5" Intercooler Southbay 1200cc port injectors Custom fuel system Chinese Intake Manifold TPG modified rear brake calipers 17" wheels with drag radials or slicks BC Racing 2-way shocks and custom suspension Will this end here? Of course not. Expect the back and forth to continue.

    This turbo upgrade was in the works for a while but VTT (Vargas Turbocharger Technologies) finally has what they are referring to as their MQB 'GC' turbocharger. This is not an IS38 hybrid but their own casting although it applies to the same models. That means EA888 2.0 motors in the following models: MKVII GTI MKVII Golf R 8V A3 8V S3 B9 A4 B9 A5 The current intro price is $1799 and let's take a look at what it can do. First, dynos: Over 500 whp is great power. It results in 10-second performance on the strip and trap speeds of ~126 depending on conditions and supporting mods: And what about the 1/2 mile? 156.7 mph: Certainly great performance out of the 2.0 liter motor.

    Still TBD. My car is totally ripped apart and I’m putting in a cage, seats, harnesses, new suspension, etc. I’ve got a lot of work left. Can’t commit right now.

    It can be annoying when fanboys cite magazine numbers as evidence of what a car should run on a drag strip. Why? Because a Ferrari 812 Superfast is not running 138+ mile per hour trap speeds anywhere other than the pages of a magazine. MotorTrend actually tested both the Ferrari 812 Superfast and the Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye using their VBOX GPS numbers and then took the cars to a drag strip in Arizona. The difference between the two types of testing is huge. Not to mention, magazines often get ringers for testing. Especially from Ferrari. Now, both of these cars are powerful but the Redeye is not 812 Superfast competition. A high revving naturally aspirated V12 is a completely different animal compared to a supercharged V8 and much more difficult to extract power out of. In the Ferrari you are paying for a certain level of engineering, exclusivity, and engagement. The Redeye on the other hand is just brute force American muscle.

Running a 134 in an 812 Superfast is much more realistic than a 138. A spread of over four miles per hour is huge anyway and perfectly illustrates why magazine racing against the actual drag strip which uses timing beams is done by those who do not understand the difference in how the times are calculated. The Redeye does not do better either on the strip and it is off by .2 seconds of elapsed time and 2.6 miles per hour of trap speed. The bottom line is that there is a reason people respect timeslips more than magazine tests. They are more realistic and a more accurate representation as to what you can do with your own car. Not to mention, your own car is not going to be tweaked for marketing purposes by the manufacturer before you get it.

    Eurocharged Canada is still tweaking the tune and wants to run the car at the track when weather permits but AudiBoost's job is the bring you the latest tuning breakthroughs and news. This 800+ all wheel horsepower Audi MKII TT-RS 2.5 TFSI certainly qualifies as newsworthy. The tuning is as mentioned by Eurocharged Canada and Eurocode provided the forged pistons, rods, and valvetrain components. Eurocode/SRM (Silly Rabbit Motorsport) partner on the 2.5 TFSI Garrett GTX35 based hybrid turbo upgrade. The result is a silly 814 awhp and 780 awtq: Please excuse the low resolution graph as this is just a teaser. Eurocharged Canada will publish a full resolution graph when they are finished. Enjoy the result for now and this is just the beginning.

    The GT2 RS is a very, very special 911 and not exactly easily replaceable. As a matter of fact, in order to replace a lost unit Porsche has to restart the entire production line. That is exactly what they are doing in order to deliver four units to customers which were lost in a shipping accident. A fire started on the Grande America pictured below which resulted in the loss of the ship which sank some 100 miles off the coast of France: The 991.2 GT2 RS models on board will be replaced by a production run in April which should result in deliveries to the customers in Brazil in June. Roughly 2000 cars were onboard and if you want to try and fish one out they are lying at 15,000 feet underwater. Kudos to Porsche for doing the right thing: Source

    This Mercedes-AMG GLC63 built by GAD Motors is a stout performer. It better be considering it has the works from tuner GAD including a built motor, built transmission, and M177 turbo upgrade. Output is stated to be around 950 horsepower. You saw a GLC63 with this same GAD 950 package make easy work of a Ferrari 812 Superfast. This particular example though struggles a bit especially at the launch at least until the final race against the X5M. Every 60 foot is over 2.X except in the final run when it manages a 1.7X. It also is nowhere near the 9-second numbers GAD posted in the 1/4 mile. The GT-R crushes it in the first run but the GLC lets off: A stock F90 M5 is next and despite the bad start the GLC63 catches and passes: The GLC63 traps 5.9 mph higher at the 1/2 mile mark. The final run is against a K8 Strasse built BMW F85 X5M said to make 1000 horsepower. The 1/2 mile trap is not recorded for the X5M. It does run the quicker 1/2 mile but the GLC63 got the better launch and reaction time: While this GLC63 is not putting up the numbers of GAD's own car it is definitely doing well against some stout competition.

    More S55 tuning results with the EcuTek software suite are being published and Snail Performance did a custom Stage 1 tune on this F80 M3 Competition. This tune was done on a stock car on 91 octane pump fuel with no other changes but the tune. The baseline is a healthy 415 rwhp and 427 rwtq on a Mustang dynamometer: They get gains through the curve starting with a nice torque increase at 3000 rpm. There is a difference of roughly 90 whp at 5500 rpm. Peak horsepower increases by 32 at the wheels and torque increases by 61 lb-ft at the wheels. Very nice gains tune only over an S55 Competition file and it is great to see more and more EcuTek results especially from their ProEcu tuners.

    DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters or German Touring Car Masters) is going to turbocharged four-cylinder power. The series previously utilized naturally aspirated 4.0 liter V8's but Audi states they are getting more power out of the four-cylinder turbo motors and also making racing potentially more exciting. There is a push-to-pass feature which allows overboost for overtaking. This is a smart way to take advantage of the turbo powerplant in racing and one has to wonder why Formula 1 does not incorporate something similar to increase passing and make races more exciting. Maybe you get a bonus use of the overboost feature if you set a fastest lap for example? There are plenty of ways to utilize the ability of the motor to generate more boost in a race setting. Speaking of boost, the motors are designed for 50 psi. The smaller four-cylinder motors are expected to provide a fuel efficiency benefit as well and consume 24.7 gallons an hour. This goes up to 26 gallons an hour with use of the horsepower boost function. The motor is lighter as well with the powerplant coming in at 187 pounds. That means cars are down to 2200 pounds dry. DTM is essentially German Nascar but with these new changes as well as lighter and more powerful cars the racing should be much more exciting.

    The next generation BMW 1-Series and 2-Series will share a Mini inspired FWD architecture. What does this mean? It means four-cylinder power and it also means do not expect another M2 with BMW M inline-6 power. Much like the BMW F48 X1 and F39 X2 which share the same platform as well there is no room for an I6 in the engine bay. This means the redundancy between the M2 and M4 will come to an end and that the 1-Series and 2-Series are expected to stay smaller compared to the 3-Series and 4-Series which continue to grow in size. If we even see another M2 expect four-cylinder power although that is unlikely. It would be nice to see BMW challenge the Mercedes CLA45 AMG as the 2-Series Gran Coupe in particular will be the direct challenger from BMW. We'll see the new 2-Series debut late this year at the Los Angeles International Auto Show.
