    You will notice with modern turbocharged German motors and especially the V8's that manufacturers place the catalytic converters very close to the turbochargers. Why? This is done for emissions and to reduce pollution of cold starts. How? Because the cats being close means they heat quickly and this reduces emissions and gets them doing what they were designed to do. Unfortunately, being placed so far upstream this is also a restriction in the exhaust. Ditching the first set of cats with catless downpipes provides a major efficiency benefit. Does this increase emissions? Yes, but there is also a second set of cats. If you want improved spool, sound, and performance it is a minor tradeoff.

    Just an absolutely fantastic result here for an E92 M3 on the stock S65 V8 and DCT transmission. The result could have been even more impressive but the DCT clutches finally gave out and the owner will be sourcing an upgrade and trying again. Regardless, the stock internal E92 M3 quickest and fastest 1/4 mile record is now 10.384 @ 136.04: The owner wants to hit 9's and maybe if temps further drop at ATCO it will be possible. As for the mods: - Gintani Stage X - American Racing Headers - Upgraded fuel system - E85 - stock axles, stock S65 V8 - Drag rubber Nothing too crazy there and this result tops every built S65 V8 run except for one Russian built 4.5 liter S65 V8 stroker with a blower that runs 10.254 @ 140.24. For those wondering, this car has the same Gintani supercharger, fuel system, and header setup as the E92 M3.

    It is somewhat confusing to keep track of BMW B58 engine variants but the B58C or B58C30O1 to be exact is the Toyota variant of the motor. BMW themselves does not rev the B58 engine past 7000 rpm. What is the GR MKV Supra? GR stands for Gazoo Racing which is an internal Toyota Motorsport team. Their expertise is used to improve and sharpen performance and this trickles down to the street car. Apparently the GR MKV Supra Concept is running the B58C motor at higher output and revving it to 7756 rpm as the screen grab shows. This would be a fairly large increase implying a revised head, springs, retainers, camshafts, etc. Does this mean we will see a high performance version of the A90 MKV Supra and B58 motor from Toyota? Time will tell.

    That's more like it! Congratulations to Weistec as their W.4 M177 turbo upgrade package is doing some incredible work. As a reminder, this W205 C63 S was measured at 778 rear wheel horsepower on a Mustang dyno a few months back. The tune by @kbaldi29 of Labworx likely evolved a bit since then but this C63 is simply hauling ass: A 10.464 @ 140.90 is simply incredible. There is plenty of room to improve as well as the 60 foot is fairly poor at 1.867. That means a 1.60X would likely get this car into the 9's. The bottom line is this is the quickest and fastest W205 in the world. Congratulations to al involved.

    VTT is proud to finally announce our "Spline Lock" crank hub solution for the N54/N55/S55 BMW platforms. After 8 months of testing, and 10+ design changes we arrived at our final design, and exhaustively tested it on the bench, and in our shop test vehicle! The way this product works is very much like a Splined extractor (Example: You have an extractor with splines machined into it that is pressed or hammered into a broken off nipple etc. As you turn the extractor one direction it will lock itself to the nipple, and spin it out. Our hubs are machined to a very close tolerance and are a specific press fit for the crank. You use the crank bolt to install the hub just as you would a stock hub, but for these, you have to lock the crank first, and as you tighten the bolt you will press the splines into the crank creating teeth, and it will be locked. The teeth are designed in such a way that if you have an event that would normally slip a stock hub the teeth will be forced deeper into the crank not allowing it to spin. The benefits of these are two-fold. 1. a positive locking hub. 2. No additional labor to completely disassemble your motor, drill, and pin your crank. Some may wonder why did not make a complete CNC hub including the oil sprocket, that is a good question, and one we tried while testing. We found the oil sprocket is almost never to blame when you slip a hub. You are trying to maintain the crank to cam timing, and this is lost either two ways in almost every test we saw. 1. The single grip disc between the timing sprocket and the hub would slip first (most common failure point). Going with a one-piece hub/timing sprocket locked to the crank eliminates that failure point. 2. The bolt itself would spin loose causing this first grip disc to slip, and timing to be lost. Coupling the "Spline Lock" hub with our Crank Bolt Capture eliminates this failure point as well, which is why we suggest running the CBC with the Splined hub. Couple photos (Yes we know the oil gear is on backward, was easier to get the splines in the photo that way) We created a testing rig using cut off the end of an N54 crank, and a hydraulic pump t simulate the crank spinning on the hub. We used this to see how easily we could slip a stock hub compared to our new design, after about 10-12 revisions we had one that broke the rig before slipping. We went with that design, and have since had it in our shop car without issue spinning high RPM, and making around 900WHP. The hubs are CNC machined from very tough hardened 14-7SS, and can take anything we can throw at them. The Hubs are available in these configurations, and we will run an intro special for the rest of the week. We offer the hubs in 3 ways. Hub Only - $699 (Intro Price $599) Hub plus OEM bolt, OEM Oil pump sprocket, OEM oil sprocket retainer - $749 (intro Price $649) Hub Plus OEM bolt, OEM Oil pump sprocket, OEM oil sprocket retainer, and VTT Crank bolt capture - $799 (Intro Price $699) IN STOCK READY TO SHP Here are a few photos of the testing process (please note these are early samples, the teeth design was revised to perfectly match the stock hub) We spent north of 5K doing this testing (one off samples are expensive!) as it was something very important to us as it has cost us prob triple that is ruined heads dealing with these issues.

    This is a second intercooler option for Audi 2.5 TFSI powered vehicles from Iroz Motorsport. They state is is good for cars making up to 1000 horsepower and considering how quickly 2.5 TFSI tuning is moving this is something cars running a big turbo will want to look into. You can see it pictured above on an 8V RS3 sedan: How much? You will have to contact Iroz for that info.
