    How in the world do you claim an output record without even posting the dynograph? If it was not bad enough tuners were fighting over Dynojet vs. Dynocom output records now we have a tuner claiming a record without even posting a graph of the supposed record to begin with and making up their own equations to get there. First of all, this is not the stock internal N54 record. It is not anywhere near it. The record is 861 rear wheel horsepower according to BimmerBoost's database: https://www.bimmerboost.com/content.php?5890-New-N54-335-record-861whp Maybe someone is even hitting higher output but the fact is 828 on a Dynocom is not even close. Claiming to have the highest horsepower stock N54 without even posting the graph and making up your own math to get it is bogus. Is it true this 9-inch rear end and 'big' tires have higher drivetrain losses than the stock setup? Sure. But what matters is what gets to the tires. You would have to grant absurdly high drivetrain losses to inflate crank horsepower in order to claim the highest output. Well over the 15% loss classic Dynojet rule of thumb figure. Regardless, this is a pointless assertion to make as you can just keep increasing the loss percentage until you get your 'record' number. It doesn't work that way Ghassan. No serious tuner would claim a record with invented math. Not only does he not specify the loss figure he is operating with, he does not specify what that figure is adding up to. In other words, a load of BS. Furthermore, we already went over the whole Dynocom vs. Dynojet debacle. Prove the output on a Dynojet or it just shows you are fishing for numbers to try to impress people who do not know any better. At the very least actually start with posting a graph of your dyno run. To BimmerBoost, this entire enterprise seems a bit shady and the forums already discussed Ghassan built motor issues as well as BBB complaints filed. Frankly, with the questionable aura surrounding Ghassan Motors they should go out of their way to provide data, logs, runfiles, pictures, etc., to alleviate concerns and prove reputable. Is anyone really buying this?

    Ecoboost tuning is becoming very popular and for those pushing the limits these cams from Xtreme-DI that are being distributed by RMB Motor Works are worth looking at. Xtreme-DI states the design is based around working with their upgraded HPFP's (high press fuel pump) for the Ecoboost. The Xtreme-DI HPFP pumps are well known in the Ecoboost world and RMB Motor Works does some impressive 3.5 Ecoboost builds so the partnership here makes plenty of sense. RMB did a custom grind that is paired to an XDI-60 pump with what they say is an Xtreme-DI lobe grind: It seems with an XDI-60 pump and these cams not only will the direct injection fuel system accommodate what is a teased 1000 horsepower but there are some large power gains to be had.

    Finally some dyno numbers for a car that is flying way under the radar. Obviously the B9 Audi models are giving tuners fits as the S4/S5 and RS4/RS6 ECU's can not yet be tuned. That is why this B9 S4 making some big power with a turbo upgrade with help from BMS (Burger Tuning) is such a big deal. The initial claim was that this S4 is producing roughly 700 crank horsepower. A BMS employee who will go unnamed leaked an initial dynograph on the AudiBoost forums: The difference compared to stock is huge especially when you look at the torque down low. The difference at 3500 rpm is almost 150 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. For whatever reason though the torque curve takes a dip and then drops past 5000 rpm when this turbo definitely has more flow up top in it. Early tuning no doubt. A recent dyno video shows even more impressive peak figures: 700 crank horsepower it is not but 430 awhp and 469 awtq on a Mustang dyno is not too shabby. Especially when you consider the car has bolt ons and is tuned for 91 octane daily driving. AudiBoost suspects we are not seeing the full curves posted due to the issues highlighted before but this is all part of the tuning process. Eurocode, SRM, and BMS are well ahead of anyone else on the platform and well over 200 horsepower over stock output.

    It is no secret this network does not hold Carwow and their 'testing' in high esteem but as they have access to an airstrip they continue to get cars to do acceleration comparisons with. This time around the BMW F90 M5 Competition faces some stout competition. The GT-R and 911 Turbo are not exactly direct rivals for the M5 but what they happen to be is all wheel drive, turbocharged, and easy to tune. The main difference of course is that the are lighter than the M5 and feature dual clutch transmissions. The M5 is the heaviest of the trio but also has the largest motor with the 4.4 liter S63TU2 V8. It is in Competition trim meaning it has BMW's factory warrantied tune. The GT-R is tuned as well but by Litchfield and well known Porsche tuner ESMotor tuned the 997.2 Turbo S. Off the line the GT-R gets ahead of everyone by some margin. The 997.2 Turbo S is charging hard and by the finish line it is pulling much, much harder. The F90 M5 is left in the dust. This should mean the Turbo S dominates the rolling race followed by the GT-R and M5. That is what happens. The GT-R for whatever reason starts in third gear which allows the BMW M5's torque advantage to keep it close while the 911 pulls easily away from them both. Want to make this interesting Carwow? Give the M5 an aftermarket tune and start the rolling racing in 2nd gear.

    Is there anything BMS (Burger Tuning) is not tuning these days? It doesn't seem like it. Their JB4 was fitted on this FK8 Honda Civic Type R which is a completely stock example with 12,000 miles on it. BMS started with a Dynojet baseline. Keep in mind the car is on 91 octane pump fuel: With modest boost increases we see some nice gains from the 2.0 liter motor. Peak horsepower increases by just over 30 whp and at 4000 rpm almost 50 lb-ft of torque at the wheels is picked up. BMS with their JB4 added 4 psi of boost in the low end of the rev range and 3 psi of boost up top: This is all on Map 1 so we will see if they push further and what pricing will be but as always expect the bang for the buck here to be unbeatable.

    It is good that PorscheBoost Porsche Performance Forums member @LavaGTS got these runs on video or nobody would believe him. For some reason people are still having trouble believing the 991.2 3.0 platform is stout when it comes to tuning and really a discount 911 Turbo. There is a reason Porsche tries to lock people out of the ecu, right? Well, usually you would need a 911 Turbo to dismantle a bolt on GT-R like this. The GT-R gets the jump in both run videos yet the 911 GTS walks away and it does so quite easily. The larger GTS turbochargers show what they can do and this is a car with just an OTS pump gas tune, Fabspeed headers, and cat deletes. Now imagine a race gas tune or larger turbochargers than factory...

    AG Autosports just continues to churn out insane Evo after insane Evo. This is an 800+ awhp example running a Precision 6466 turbocharger. Seeing this kind of power from just 2.0 liters of displacement is evidence why the Evo has the tuning reputation it does. It does take a bit of time to spool with such small displacement: But once it does... wow! 837 horsepower to all four wheels and 631 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels. Mod list: AG spec 2.0 AG custom turbo kit. Precision Turbo & Engine 6466 STMtuned.com 4 inch FMIC Walbro Fuel Pumps 450 x 2 Fuel Injector Clinic 2150 Sparktech Ignitions CDI Haltech Elite Engine Management.

    The twin turbo V12 and V12 motor in general is something endangered. Few automakers produce V12's and the motor is seen as something as a matter of prestige. Aston Martin for example continues with a V12 for their DB11 despite sourcing a cheaper, lighter, and more efficient V8 from AMG. Mercedes-AMG themselves produces the M279 V12 while offering that same M177/M178 V8 shared with Aston Martin that again is lighter and more efficient. The M279 design is quite archaic by today's standards. The M275 V12 it is based on itself was based on the 1990's M137 V12. That means it is a SOHC 3V motor. It is not exactly a revver or even considered all that reliable (and just look at the depreciation) but Mercedes-AMG feels their high end models need to feature a V12. Is this the beginning end of the V12 as a whole in Mercedes-AMG products? AMG hints at it: Hopefully they mean the end of the M279 and a proper modern V12 will be designed but that is wishful thinking. Expect the M279 to be phased out with Maybach models being the last holdouts. We will likely never see an AMG V12 again.

    I'd say it's more worth it for the additional towing capacity, in regards for the safety I'm not sure. Most trucks can have this option fitted, but it depends on the need and the frame I believe. For example I don't think this would be an option for a lower towing capacity truck because it so please wouldn't ever exceed the towing capacity with a standard hitch. But for me I like a standard hitch when just towing a car because it allows me to use the trunk of my truck for tires, fuel, tools, jacks and other random bits. This is also because I use an open trailer with no additional room for other things, to keep the weight down and enable both a truck or a high towing capacity suv to utilize it instead of just having a truck be able to tow it and thus force me to always have a truck. Either way, just make sure you look into what kind of towing you want to do first, then figure out a truck that can do it, then look at the hitch and trailer type.

    Only a couple pictures here that leaked onto social media but they certainly do appear to depict the new 992 generation Porsche 911 Turbo. It looks like it will debut as a 2020 model year car which means this year but it could go to 2021 for the US market. After all, the 992 Carrera has yet to launch and the same with the 992 GTS. These photos at what appears to be a Porsche facility look legitimate and the 992 Turbo looks exactly as expected. You get the new rear light design along with the rear bumper opening. Center lock wheels appear standard and massive with a 21 inch rim in back and probably a 20 inch rim in front just like the 992 Carrera S. The real question is what will Porsche increase output to. The standard Turbo should be close to 600 horsepower at this point if not officially crossing that mark. The 8-speed dual clutch is a question mark as one has to wonder if it will be as strong as the 7-speed. Hopefully larger VTG's turbochargers come into play and the Turbo S really should get the units off the GT2 RS if Porsche wants to keep up with the competition. A jump to 4.0 liters is probably wishful thinking but a possibility.

    Worth it for safety though I think and most trucks can have the option outfitted from the dealer I think?

    It might make the choice of trailers more limited and more expensive. Plus you have to look at trucks with the goose neck adapters in the bed.
