    The p1, 918 and LF disagree with you. There is a reason carbeurated 454s are a thing of the past. I'm not saying every car will see a performance increase, but new technologies will find their ways into performance cars and we'll see it there.

    Nothing about this is going to boost performance in vehicles lol. There are going to be smaller engines in slower vehicles to meet fuel efficiency standards and more hybrids, which most people who are into performance dont want. As for the White House not knowing what its doing and everyone defying it, time to move along and stop trying to fight every little thing. He won, get over it. He may be the 2nd worst choice for president in the history of the US, but thats what happens when you run against the worst choice.

    Every group in the country, including the GOP, seems to be 'defying the White House'. Trump has already proven he has no idea wtf he is doing with his health Care bill. Why are you trusting him with dismantling the EPA or climate agreements we've made? Additionally, you should than recent regulations for the recent wave in performance increases? Do you think we'd be seeing Porsche, Ferrari, BMW, etc boosting everything in their line up if we didn't have to? I'm also willing to bet it sped up the rollout of direct injection as well. The next wave may have been hybrid powerplants showing up in more performance applications, but "eh" screw the environment!

    hippy... the people that push so hard for these "Environmental Friendly" rules and regulations, really have no idea what they are actually pushing for. They just believe it when they are told "It will save the environment" but dont question how, how much or at what cost. This CARB regulation isnt going to save the environment from shit, and it has the potential to negatively impact the auto business.

    Reading now that all the suites have built in stripper poles. And they are taking from The Replacements and having strippers be the cheerleaders.

    There's some truth to what they told you. RFT's have extremely stiff sidewalls, as we all know - this really helps produce sharp turn in feel and response, which in turn improves accuracy of placement. Feels like the car goes where you want. On the same car, non-RFT 's will always have a softer sidewall (unless you run super-high pressure), which means more squirm/flex on turn in, slower response, and more vague feeling to turn-in. I made this same switch - replaced the OEM RFT's on my 5 with Michelin PSS. More vague and softer turn-in feel and sense of accuracy/response was the first thing I noticed, within 2 mins of driving the car. However RFT's have other well-documented, less-desirable effects from the stiff sidewalls, like harsh ride, louder, more $$$, etc. - so you just have to weigh the pros/cons and make a call.

    I'll ask him. We know people that own shops in TN though, so I'm sure it was through one of them.

    APR Presents the New 3.0 TFSI Coolant Performance System (CPS) Product Page The APR Coolant Performance System (CPS) is a massive front-mounted cooler upgrade that dramatically reduces intake air temperature (IAT), minimizes heat soak, and provides increased performance! It is 140% larger than stock and features a self-bleeding cooling circuit to ensure it is always operating at peak performance. The system is easy to maintain and fully integrated into the factory cooling circuit. This upgrade is highly recommended at every stage! Quick Facts: Dramatically lowers intake air temp (IAT) Increases and retains HP while minimizing power-robbing heat soak! Massive frontal surface area (core) and volume (radiator) 29" x 05.5" x 2.1" Ė 159.5"≤ & 054"≥ - OEM 22" x 17.4" x 1.7" Ė 382.8"≤ & 130"≥ - APR Highly effective dual-pass core design Tightly packed external louvered fins rapidly dissipate heat as coolant flows through internal cooling paths. Self-bleeding and self-optimizing system Air-bubbles trapped within the system kills performance! The self-bleeding system constantly removes air from the system, without any manual intervention! Retains factory safety and control The ECU retains full control over the system, protecting against pump failure and coolant leaks. Easy to install and maintain All the performance without the headaches. Each system is fully pressure tested after assembly. System Overview The 3.0 TFSI uses a liquid-to-air intercooling cooling circuit. A front mounted radiator is responsible for cooling hot coolant, while two heat exchangers within the supercharger are responsible for cooling the supercharged air before it enters the engine. The Problem: The front mounted radiator is tiny. Air trapped within the system devastates the coolerís effectiveness, while the sheer lack of surface area and coolant volume makes for a system incapable of keeping up with the cooling demands at higher performance levels. The APR Solution: The APR Coolant Performance System replaces the front mounted radiator with a much larger and more capable dual-pass unit. It has 140% more frontal surface area and holds 141% more coolant than the factory unit. Tightly packed louvered fins rapidly dissipate heat over a much wider area than the factory unit. Next, APR CPS incorporates a unique self-bleeding system into the cooler design. Keeping up with manual bleeding is messy, and all but impossible. However, the APR system continuously self-bleeds, increasing the coolers effectiveness automatically! The result is simple: More horsepower over a much wider operating range! Testing APRís engineers conducted a multitude of tests on the street, dyno, dragstrip and race track with thermocouples placed at the inlet and outlet of the radiator during the design phase. Data from these tests were used to choose the radiator design available today. With the radiator in its final production form, tests were conducted against the factory radiator to measure the effectiveness of each system. Testing conducted on the dyno provided a semi controlled environment for back-to-back stress testing the two systems. Utilizing a B8 S4 3.0T at APR Stage II+ Ultra power levels, six back-to-back dyno pulls were conducted with minimal cooldown time between runs. APRís ECU Explorer high resolution datalogging system was used for raw sensor data collection. Using the APR Radiator, horsepower remained consistent for the first four back-to-back dyno pulls. By the fifth back-to-back pull, horsepower dropped slightly when the IAT protection threshold was crossed. The threshold is designed to bypass boost pressure to cool off the system and protect the engine. The OEM intercooler did not fare so well. Horsepower began derating on the first pull and the IAT threshold was crossed by the end of the first dyno pull. This trend continued dramatically, resulting in massive power losses to protect the engine from excessive intake air temperature. The factory cooling system simply did not stand a chance. Ultimately peak horsepower dropped to as low as 260 AWHP, whereas the APR cooling system retained over 400 AWHP, even after the sixth consecutive back-to-back pull! Application Guide Please visit our Product Page for the most up to date application guide. More applications will be added shortly. Some vehicles require additional hardware "fit kits" as listed below. Some early B8 models with Audi Drive Select (ADS) have a factory dynamic steering cooler, which must be relocated. This cooler is visible through the top of the grill. APR CPS - MS100127 - $999.99 A4 - Typ 8K - B8.5 - 3.0 TFSI A5 - Typ 8T - B8.5 - 3.0 TFSI S4 - Typ 8K - B8 - 3.0 TFSI - Requires MS100136 Fit Kit S4 - Typ 8K - B8.5 - 3.0 TFSI S5 - Typ 8T - B8 - 3.0 TFSI - Requires MS100136 Fit Kit S5 - Typ 8T - B8.5 - 3.0 TFSI Releasing shortly: Q5 / SQ5 3.0T A6 / A7 (C7/C7.5) 3.0T S6 / S7 (C7/C7.5) 4.0T Find a local dealer through the APR Dealer Locator.

    Its been a long time coming for a team to get to Vegas. It is going to be the one place that has no home field advantage, but sold out games every week. A true entertainment atmosphere, especially once the casino and hookers get involved.

    Why would you prefer mustang or dynamics? Not like they're cheaper or have any clear advantage that I can see? Why not simply have a dynojet with the load cell.. load off for power runs, on for tuning. Seems like it should be the best of both worlds no? Something you didn't mention (that I read at least) is that load bearing dynos need routine calibration, which can vary wildly. Hence from one mustang (or any other model) to another of the exact same brand and spec etc. You can get wildly different numbers. I've been at dyno days where they start going out of calibration midway through the day, and absolutely absurd figures start to show (low, not high, mostly - like <100hp where it should be 200+ lol) A dynojet has the calibration stamped to the specific roller which is locked in the software. Every dynojet will be comparable as such, as long as the correct value is entered.
