    It is no accident to see a Porsche 991.2 GT2 RS next to a Chevrolet C8 Corvette test mule. Is this an indicator the C8 Z06 is boosted? Possibly. The two cars were spotted in California testing in the basin as well as the California mountain ranges. Whether it tells us the C8 Z06 is boosted or not the testing does tell us the GT2 RS is the performance benchmark. That makes a lot of sense as the Z06 has some big shoes to fill and the performance game is moving at a rapid pace. The C7 Z06 seems like a distant memory at this point. No doubt more info will trickle out with GM testing the new Z06 around the country.

    AC Schnitzer is German for overpriced BMW parts or something along those lines. Still, AC Schnitzer body pieces are usually pretty nice and their wheels are well known. The BMW tuning house certainly is well established. So what do you they have for your F97 X3M? As for body pieces, a front lip, rear spoiler, and some rear skirt protection. Somewhat of a subdued aero offering for AC Schnitzer. Their springs will drop the car .8 inches up front and 1.0 inch in back. The drop certainly helps the 20-inch wheels fill out the fenders and 22-inch wheels are also available although those are for the crowd that is all about looks. You also get a tune good for 592 horsepower but there are much stronger tuning options for far less money on the market. Is it worth it? Only if you value the AC Schnitzer brand name.

    Thank you to BenzBoost member @Gad6363 for this. He has the quickest and fastest recorded W213 Mercedes-AMG E63 S M177 to date on GPS. Whatever GAD Motors is doing they seem to have the platform figured out. While others struggle with the transmission GAD Motors is posting 0-100 kph (0-62 mph) in 2.82 seconds. It does take a bit of money to get there: Still, they are on the stock M177 engine internals. Their transmission reinforcement clearly seems to be working as nobody else is quicker.

    This is great! I'm sure it will have a range of about 200 miles which is just enough to get me to a trail head 100 miles away and leave me stranded in the middle of no where! An adventure vehicle that has no means of refueling in the middle of no where! Why didn't I think of that?

    The TTE1000+ turbochargers for the C6 generation Audi RS6 are the real deal. You can comfortable see they are making 1000+ horsepower on the 5.2 liter V10 and making us all wish Audi brought this RS6 to the USA. How does 1079 horsepower and 936 lb-ft of torque sound? That is on 99RON fuel. Now, this 100-200 kph time comes from another C6 RS6 with the same turbo kit but tuned by KSF Motorsport on race gas. Full weight car: 4.75 seconds is not too shabby. Definitely some strong numbers and a hell of a motor.

    Remember the numbers posted on the 991.2 GT3 RS that Gintani developed a twin turbo kit for? Well, those were not final numbers. Also, yes, you will be able to buy this kit and twin turbo your GT3. The owner created this promo video apparently to sell some T-shirts? Well, whatever he is selling the car look awesome and the video is well made. The livery is by someone called Rocketbyz: https://www.instagram.com/rocketbyz/ PorscheBoost is more interested in the performance than looks here but this is a hell of a ride. More details on the twin turbo kit to come.

    The strongest turbochargers on the S55 platform? That would be the offering from KRATOS. The KRAS55Bi turbos are enough to go well over 1000 horsepower at the wheels providing the motor is built to handle it. This motor is not built. You still can hit some major peak figures on a properly tuned stock internal S55 motor with these turbos. So just how quick is a stock internal example tuned to roughly 750 horsepower? Quick enough to pull this ~900 horsepower Nissan GT-R. The M3 has two major advantages that play in here. One that it is lighter and also that rear wheel drive is more efficient from a roll. M3's are becoming very fast cars. (click refresh if video does not show)

    A CTS-V successor? It seems that way but this makes you scratch your head considering the LT4 V8 already was utilized and Cadillac has a 4.2 liter twin turbo Blackwing V8 waiting on deck. Why the LT4? Because it apparently fits. Why the new V8 will not fit has not been stated. Why not go LT5? Apparently because people at GM do not think. The new model is already shaping up to be outgunned and outdated. Source

    Well this seemed exciting until the end of the headline. Hummer was never about efficiency or electric trucks. The vehicles were supposed to be all-terrain monsters that nothing would stop hence the military influence on the design. Hummer went dead about a decade ago when GM could not find a buyer or make a business case. Considering how popular SUV's are today it is fair to say GM blew it. So is GM bringing the brand back with some exciting off-roader to give the Raptor or Wrangler pause? Nope. Instead GM is appealing to pop culture by advertising the revival during the Super Bowl with celebrities. Maybe they will surprise us with something that fits the Hummer brand image but don't get your hopes up. Source

    The new RS6 is not yet on the streets in the US but European enthusiasts get to sample it first. Early acceleration tests showed the new RS6 is quick but it is not dropping any jaws in stock form. HGP tuned the EA825 V8 ECU and these are their Stage 1 results. Now, they did not post their 100-200 kph baseline but we will go with 8.77 stock which another source posted. HGP shows a 6.7 second sprint which is roughly a full two seconds quicker than stock: That's certainly an impressive improvement and it starts to put the RS6 in some elite company. HGP claims 786 metric horsepower and 786 lb-ft of torque. Keep in mind this is very early tuning on the platform but so far so good.

    There were some who thought Volkswagen might get aggressive with the MK8 generation Volkswagen Golf and really attempt to appeal to enthusiasts. There was even discussion about a 400+ horsepower Golf R Plus that would really make a splash. Well, table your expectations. The MK8 Golf GTI gets 241 horsepower and the Golf R gets 329 horsepower. These increases are so modest the MK7 model can easily eclipse the figures with software tuning only. Expect minor revisions to the EA888 2.0 liter architecture.

    The GT500's sure are going to be a handful. This Porsche 997.2 Turbo certainly is no slouch with an AMS Alpha 9 package (750+ awhp) but it is a manual transmission example. It certainly looks like shift speed plays a large part in its demise. This GT500 recently set the Predator V8 platform quickest and fastest records so it is roughly a 145 mile per hour car. In this video though it has a 2.65 pulley and not the 2.5 it ran for the records. You see the Porsche start well but as soon as it shifts it falls back. The GT500 just keeps pulling and makes seemingly easy work of the 911 Turbo. Let's see some runs against PDK variants. GT500 mods: 2.65 pulley Lethal race pipe 1050x injectors E85 tune from Palm beach dyno Porsche 911 mods: AMS Alpha 9 package Intercooler upgrade Fuel system Stage 2 clutch Stock engine MS109 race fuel 20-24 lbs of boost 750+ WHP

    The quickest and fastest 1/4 mile record for the new Ford Shelby GT500 Mustang is going to be broken and broken again seemingly every other day. We have a new quickest pass here at 9.708 seconds and a new fastest pass at 145.09 miles per hour. Mod list: - 2.5 pulley - Lethal Track Exhaust - Injector Dynamics 1050x Pump - E85 - Toyo R888R - Palm Beach Dyno tune This is just the beginning but 145+ miles per hour with bolt ons sure is nice: Note, the 9.70 ET slip is not yet posted but the pass is in the video below: Congratulations to those involved and let's see how quickly this is one-upped:

    So how quick is 100-200 kilometers per hour in 7.07 seconds in context? A Ferrari 458 Spider takes 7.4 seconds. A Porsche 991.1 Turbo S takes roughly 7.2 seconds. A Lamborghini Aventador LP-700-4 will do it in 6.3 seconds. A 2012 Nissan GT-R needs 7.8 seconds. This is an SUV running C6 Corvette ZR1 times: And we are talking about a 3.5 seconds improvement over stock (which is huge namely for an SUV). This thing is fast for a Stage 1 tune only and GPF (Gasoline Particulate Filter) delete.

    The wheels are wide enough. I'll take the lower rotational inertia which adds up over a lap.

    How do you know it's not the rubber? The GT500 is obviously much quicker and faster. The Camaro isn't accelerating better. It just has to pray for traction and having driven an LT4 that motor is impossible to put the power down with. The Ford is the better performer although Chevy deserves credit for the skidpad figure. Even so, it won't win around the track.

    Almost 160 miles per hour out of the factory turbochargers without any nitrous assist? Unreal! This was achieved by Ekanoo Racing in Bahrain. The status of the Bahrain drag strip may make this run questionable for some. Regardless, it is the quickest and fastest slip posted to date: All achieved on the factory ECU using the M-Engineering OBD-II software suite. In addition, the car was run on race gas with catless downpipes and aftermarket air filters. The fastest overall remains 160.54 miles per hour but that was set with nitrous. 8.855 seconds is now the overall quickest M840T pass and 159.53 is the fastest factory turbo only pass. Impressive work and well done.
