    This car obviously was coming before the Coronavirus issue shut things down but considering how ready for business it looks Porsche will likely still bring it to market albeit delayed. It may just be Porsche's hottest track car. The 718 Cayman GT4 offers 420 horsepower from its 9A2B6 based flat-6. The rumor floating around is Porsche will up horsepower to 500 for the RS which sounds like an unusually high jump for the normally conservative Porsche. Porsche is especially conservative with the Cayman/Boxster to not tread in the 911's performance territory and a 500 horsepower GT4 RS would be trouncing most 911's around the track. At an expected price point of $130k+ perhaps Porsche is no longer interested in protecting the 911 and simply will build high performance versions of the Cayman/Boxster and price them accordingly? It sure seems that way with the GT4 and GT4 RS. This may just challenge the 992 GT3 for the title of best Porsche driver's car in the lineup when it debuts.

    It is a pretty good endorsement for your product when AMS Performance decides to use it as their tuning tool. AudiBoost can not say enough positive things about Dyno Spectrum's DS1 EA824 tuning software and it seems AMS Performance agrees. DS1 WIRELESS FLASHING Wireless flashing of your DME/ECU via web brows​er PC, Mac, iphone, Android, smart watch flashing capabilities. Data is broadcast via an encrypted WiFi connection Robust and safe data transfer between DS1 and user Change maps in less than 30 seconds AMS decided to try the DS1 suite out with a C7 S6 which seems to be a popular candidate. Unfortunately, the graph is extremely low resolution: The peak figures are 639 horsepower and 636 lb-ft of torque at the wheels which sounds like a lot because it is. This is with upgraded turbochargers which AMS does not name. DS1 is proving quite popular.

    This topic was discussed previously with the pros and cons of volute injection and Prometh is now releasing single nozzle (and dual nozzle option) kits for the Vortech S, Si, T, Ti, Ysi, and Paxton Novi 1500/2200 centrifugal superchargers. Prometh argues you can get another couple PSI and eliminate the need for an intercooler: It certainly is cost effective compared to a water-air intercooler setup and furthermore another couple PSI of boost is a big deal if the compressor is maxed out. This style of injection was called 'cheating' in certain drag racing classes due to the advantage it gave. You can go dual stage as well: Are any supercharged BoostAddicts going to give it a shot?

    The 718 Cayman T and Boxster T models are excellent driver's cars and designed to offer a pure Porsche experience at an entry level price. If there is any downside it is that Porsche used the smaller (and cheaper) 2.0 liter motor over the 2.5. Not that the 718 T's do not kick ass with the 2.0 as they do. The Boxster T PDK matches the new Supra despite being down a liter and two cylinders. It's obviously the better handling car. The manual transmission costs the Cayman T a full second: Toyota GR Supra: 1.58,8 min Porsche 718 Boxster T (PDK): 1.58,8 min BMW Z4 M40i: 1.59,5 min Porsche 718 Cayman T: 1.59,8 min Renault Megane RS Trophy: 2.00,80 min Alpine A110S: 2.00,1 min Audi TTS Coupé: 2.03,40 min This just goes to show how shift times add up over a lap. If opting for the manual though, tenths of a second probably are not your concern. Reifen: Pirelli P Zero N1Laptime: 1.59,8 min

    This is as simple as it gets. Showing the output before and after a modification. The Kong TVS2650 supercharger swap being one heck of a modification as the output of the already powerful C6 Chevrolet Corvette LS9 is almost doubled. •KONG 2650 •STOCK BOTTOM END LS9 •HEADS / CAM •E85 Just look at that graph. Power literally everywhere and it just keeps going until redline. Say what you want about turbos, you may match those peak figures but not that power delivery. Monster.

    The new M2 is going to be a big deal. Why? Because it will be the last M car made that resembles the classic BMW M recipe. What is that you ask? Rear wheel drive, manual transmission, and 50/50 weight distribution with a motorsport derived powerplant. The S58 engine under the hood may be not be raced professionally like the S65 and S54 before it but making power will not be its problem. At least it is a real 'M' engine unlike the N54 in the E82 1M Coupe. This rendering has the G87 looking like a coupe version of the F44 2-Series design. It looks good but considering the G87 will not ride the same platform why give it the same styling language? If this is how it turns out BimmerBoost will not complain.

    The E36 M3 makes for a stout turbo platform. Why? The iron block S50 I6 engine line. E36's were making big power before the N54 ever existed. The example in the video is modest but as is the E90 335i it is racing. The E36 is manual but obviously is carrying less weight. This is compounded by the N54 having a passenger. You will notice the DCT and spool of the N54 give it the early lead before the E36 pulls impressively up top. To be fair the E36 looks a bit wobbly and it seems to be a garage build (where's the hood?) but it's quick. BimmerBoost would like the full specs beyond what is stated as 14 psi of boost and E85 tuning for both cars. Why isn't the N54 running more boost?
