    The Audi C7 S6 continues to show what a performance tuning value it is. This C7 S6 EA824 4.0 TFSI V8 is running the Dyno Spectrum DS1 Stage 1 pump E85 tune. That is it. No additional custom tuning or fueling upgrades here. The result? A very nice 11.3 @ 120.02 software only: Now, the car is not far off breaking into the 10's but it will likely take some fuel system upgrades to get there. It certainly will be interesting to see if a C7 S6 or S7 do break into the 10's on the factory turbochargers. The platform certainly is on the doorstep.

    If you are driving around in a bright yellow Lamborghini Urus do you really need more attention? Well, if you do Vorsteiner is where you can go to in order to make your $250k+ Lamborghini SUV stand out even more. It would embarrassing pulling in to pick the kids up after a soccer game next to another stock Urus, wouldn't it? Here are the pieces: UX-07 EDIZIONE AERO BONNET CARBON FIBER PP 2X2 GLOSSY Carbon MSRP: $9,495 UX-07 EDIZIONE AERO DECKLID SPOILER CARBON FIBER PP 2X2 GLOSSY Carbon MSRP: $2,095 UX-07 EDIZIONE AERO FENDER FLARES CARBON FIBER PP 2X2 GLOSSY Carbon MSRP: $5,295 UX-07 EDIZIONE AERO FRONT AIRDUCTS CARBON FIBER PP 2X2 GLOSSY Carbon MSRP: $1,595 UX-07 EDIZIONE AERO FRONT SPOILER CARBON FIBER PP 2X2 GLOSSY Carbon MSRP: $5,295 UX-07 EDIZIONE AERO REAR AIR DUCTS CARBON FIBER PP 2X2 GLOSSY Carbon MSRP: $1,395 UX-07 EDIZIONE AERO REAR DIFFUSER CARBON FIBER PP 2X2 GLOSSY Carbon MSRP: $6,295 UX-07 EDIZIONE AERO ROOF SPOILER CARBON FIBER PP 2X2 GLOSSY Carbon MSRP: $3,195 UX-07 EDIZIONE AERO SIDE BLADES CARBON FIBER PP 2X2 GLOSSY Carbon MSRP: $6,295 That sure adds up in a hurry. Is it worth it? You be the judge.

    The LT5 from GM and the Predator V8 from Ford are the two powerplants at the top of the domestic game. The LT5 has an advantage in time on the market but considering both of these motors have TVS2650's from the factory we are going to see massive power from both in the aftermarket. The ZR1 does have an advantage in that it is lower weight. The GT500 has an advantage in that it has a dual clutch transmission and revs higher which means it can get aggressive with the gearing. LMR tuned this C7 ZR1 with their LMR1000 package which includes a cam upgrade. Let's just say it is roughly at 1000 crank but who knows the truth. With the GT500 we have a fairly good idea of its output. It's in the low 8XX wheel horsepower range tuned on E85 with more to come. Skip all the nonsense to the 13:00 minute mark to see the runs. The ZR1 is definitely quicker and pulls hard up top but the GT500 hangs in there in the lower gears initially and you can probably thank shift speed for that. It is going to be fun to watch these platforms go head to head as they evolve. Who will win? The person who spends the most money of course...

    Carwow has little to no credibility here. We call out their bullshit time and time again. It is all about getting likes and views from the masses though so Carwow creates misleading videos in order to get more views so Carwow can get get car commission sales and that is what this is all about. It boils down to money, not credibility. The new Carrera S is not slower than a Tesla Model 3 Performance and will not lose a drag or roll race to it unless circumstances are manipulated. The test numbers thus far from a variety of sources all show the 992 Carrera S running low 11's at ~125 miles per hour. How is Carwow roughly a full second off? Well, you can visibly see the Carrera S kicking up dirt as it launches: Wow, well done Carwow! You proved all wheel drive can beat a faster car when you specifically make sure the surface is not prepped, dirty, or will not offer traction. Why not race them while it is raining too? Maybe put them both on ice? Have the Carrera start in a puddle of water? This is misleading and frankly downright awful. They do a second drag race where the Carrera S warms its tires (by doing donuts?) but the damage has been done. An 11.5 still is on the slow side for the Carrera S but still quick enough to beat the Model S. Yet, they say the video has a *shock* result despite the Carrera S winning 2 out of 3. They market the manufactured loss for views and that is why Carwow is garbage. You would think the roll race would fix all of this but the Carrera is not in the right gear (waiting for kickdown) so that they can exaggerate the performance of the Tesla... again for clicks. They even claim the Tesla won despite the Porsche pulling past. WTF? They do a second drag race and put the 992 Carrera S in second gear at 30 mph. The car is geared so that it will do over 40 miles per hour in 1st gear. It should be in first, not second. Again, misleading garbage. Someone has to call this crap out:

    The new GT500 with its 5.2 liter Predator V8 is taking all of the headlines but do not forget how potent the 5.2 liter naturally aspirated Voodoo V8 is. A little bit of boost does wonders for the GT350 as this Whipple twin supercharged example shows. Johnson Tuning did the software work and squeezed out 808 rear wheel horsepower and 588 lb-ft of torque at the wheels on 93 octane pump gas: That is a glorious horsepower and torque curb to boot. Modifications: Gen V Whipple Supercharger 3.875 Pulley Kooks Headers 72 lb Injectors Billet Oil Pump Gears If you want a manual transmission GT500, this is the next best thing. It comes with extra revs and less weight too.
