    Such a tank of a car, a hiccup because of low 91 octane but never broke down! Resale values just went up!

    I think the Ferrari is sexier too and there is something about owning a Ferrari that nobody else can replicate but the McLaren is a technological tour de force. I'd have them both ideally.

    The APR Porsche onslaught continues! Remember, not too long ago APR announced they cracked Siemens SDI 21.X OBD-II port flashing meaning a physical unlock was not required. Now they are rolling out Porsche software tune after software tune with the 991.2 Turbo S being the latest Porsche recipient. The results are strong with APR being able to take the 991.2 Turbo from the 586 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque dyno measured baseline to 685 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque tune only on race gas. Graphs for E85 numbers are coming at a later date. You can read the details below as well as browse the various graphs based on octane, crank, and wheel output. Just another great APR Porsche tuning release. Product Page Product Page Product Page APR is pleased to present the ultimate engine control unit (ECU) upgrade for the 3.8T Turbo S engine! APR’s ECU Upgrades are the best dollar-per-horsepower modification one can make to the 3.8T Turbo S engine. The upgrades dramatically increase horsepower and torque, making for an exceptionally quicker and more exciting vehicle. This is made possible through APR’s optimization of the factory engine management system to take full advantage of the engine’s capabilities, without needing any end user adjustment. The software loads to the factory ECU through the OBD-II port, resulting in a clean and headache-free install. APR ECU Upgrade Stages APR’s ECU Upgrades support various octanes both with or without any hardware modifications. Each stage is fully compatible with an upgraded intake, intercooler, exhaust, or other minor bolt on modifications. Unlike many platforms, no “Stage 2” or additional software tweaks are required to properly utilize a high flow race DP exhaust system as the factory system poses minimal restriction. Porsche Mode Switching Each upgrade offers a host of improvements beyond power alone. Using Porsche’s Normal, Sport, and Sport Plus modes offers varying levels of output while retaining all of the unique characteristics present in each mode. Sport and Sport plus modes give you full power and torque. Normal mode give you modest increase over stock, but focuses on economy and comfort. We’ve optimized boost, fueling, ignition, cams, and more to achieve greater power and torque in all scenarios. Features In Sport Plus mode we’ve reduced turbo lag during reapplication of the throttle by building boost while off the throttle. We have linearized the pedal maps for a more predictable throttle response curve, which works exceptionally well on the track. We’ve enabled left foot braking, and brake boosting. The speed limiter has been removed. We’ve optimized the software to better handle larger wheels without excessive torque interventions. And finally we’ve inverted the start stop functionality so the vehicle starts with this feature disabled. Safety With many customers tracking their Porsche, safety is paramount in our calibration strategy. Through the use of extreme datalogging equipment and additional sensors, thermocouples, and transducers, our engineers were able to fully optimize the ECU for advanced safety routines. This includes implementing several routines not enabled from the factory. The entire thermal management system is optimized to reduce engine bay temperature, and reduce intake air temperature, while also implementing advanced protection routines to prevent oil temperature from achieving unsafe levels. The exhaust crackles disable when temperature thresholds are crossed, and are only enabled in sport mode. Next, we help protect the engine from LSPI by preventing the engine from being lugged out in tall gears. We also protect the turbo from damaging compressor surge, and add in turboshaft overspeed protection. We’ve enabled new temperature protection routines to prevent the engine, exhaust, and other components from overheating, and have implemented temperature management strategies that are fully mindful of the platform’s limited fueling capabilities. We’ve optimized the injection strategy to not only deliver a fatter torque curve and better spool, but to reduce the chances of knock, and torque dips. This is also achieved alongside per cylinder ignition advance and fuel trimming. APR Stage 1 ECU Upgrade The APR Stage 1 ECU Upgrade is the first step towards making more power! This simple upgrade requires no engine hardware modifications, and produces 623-672 HP with 621-648 FT-LBS of torque, depending on octane. Gains as high as 92-110 HP and 99-116 FT-LBS of torque are available throughout the power band. To get more power, the vehicle can be outfitted with an upgraded intake, cooling, or exhasut system.APR Stage 1 is available for 91 AKI, 93 AKI, 100 AKI, and 104 AKI fuel grades in North America, and 95 RON, 98 RON, 104 RON, and 108 RON in the Rest of the World. APR Stage 1+ ECU Upgrade The APR Stage 1+ ECU Upgrade is the next step towards making more power! This simple upgrade requires an upgraded intercooler system and no engine hardware modifications, and produces 642-685 HP with 623-650 FT-LBS of torque, depending on octane. Gains as high as 92-110 HP and 100-117 FT-LBS of torque are available throughout the power band. To get more power, the vehicle can be outfitted with an upgraded intake, or exhasut system. APR Stage 1 is available for 91 AKI, 93 AKI, 100 AKI, and 104 AKI fuel grades in North America, and 95 RON, 98 RON, 104 RON, and 108 RON in the Rest of the World.

    As you know Doc Race already released their top mount B58 kit based around a BorgWarner EFR turbocharger for the new MKV/A90 Toyota Supra. The version for B58 equipped BMW vehicles such as the F22 240i, G20 340i, G22 440i, etc., followed after and here it is. Doc Race has yet to officially release it on their website but it should be very similar to the Supra version. There are differences between the BMW and Toyota B58 motors and BimmerBoost will go into those details in a later article. The main thing is, if you wanted a similar setup on your BMW to what the Supra guys were running with the Doc Race BorgWarner EFR 9280 single top mount turbo it will now be possible. Perhaps someone at Doc Race can share pricing and turbo options @Doc Race_Kirk.

    The Ferrari Roma is a beautiful new GT but as soon as it was announced people started to wonder if Ferrari might produce a cabriolet version. That would seemingly present a problem as the Ferrari Portofino occupies that particular niche in the lineup. Still, the Portofino is much heavier than the Roma as it is a hard top convertible and perhaps a soft top convertible Roma would offer something different? It certainly is fun to look and dream about such a car.

    Just a few months back we saw an F87 M2 lapping the Hockenheim GP circuit but that was an F87 M2 CS test mule. Sport Auto grabbed an F87 M2 Competition and also tested it on the Hockenheim GP track so we know exactly how much the CS edition picks up on the Competition. Rundenzeit: 01.57,6 minBereifung: Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 / 245/35 R19 / 265/35 R19 Lamborghini Huracán Evo: 1.49,0 min Porsche 718 Cayman GT4: 1.55,0 min BMW M2 CS: 1.55.8 min BMW M2 Competition (Semi): 1.57,6 min Audi TT RS Performance: 1.57.7 min Toyota GR Supra: 1.58,8 min BMW Z4 M40i: 1.59,5 min Porsche 718 Boxster T (PDK): 1.58,8 min Mercedes-AMG A45 S 4Matic +: 2.00,7 min The M2 CS is quicker of course and impressively by 1.8 seconds over the M2 Competition on Pilot Sport Cup 2's. The CS also wore the same tires so you can not blame it on the rubber. There you have it, the time difference on the Hockenheim GP between the F87 M2 CS and F87 M2 Competition.

    Well, we finally have a 10-second Audi RS5 and 10-second 2.9 liter EA839 V6. What is somewhat amusing is the 3.0 liter EA839 in the B9 S4 and S5 has the performance lead right now and it is not by a small margin. A 10.828 @ 124.74 is not bad at all and the 1.597 60 foot is impressive on 20-inch aftermarket rims: E30 is the fuel with supplemental meth injection. The JB4 is doing the tuning heavy lifting as the flash file is OEM. The cheaper S5 still has the lead by almost 10 miles per hour of trap speed which is huge. This is a function of tuning being in its infancy but it also goes to show the 2.9 and 3.0 EA839's will pretty much end up equal in aftermarket tuning making the S5 a much better tuning value along with all EA839 3.0 V6 powered vehicles.

    McLaren owners pushing big power, you will want to pay attention to this. Dodson is tackling the McLaren dual clutch transmission or SSG (Seamless Shift Gearbox). This will be appreciated by those McLarens with upgraded turbos or who do hard standing start launches. Dodson does not specify whether this is just for M838T McLarens or if it will apply to M840T McLarens but you can expect Dodson to have a solution for both. Furthermore, Ferrari and Mercedes share use of a similar transaxle dual clutch setup so we should see this carry over to cars like the AMG GT or Ferrari 488.

    The Cannonball run is something of legend in American automotive circles and the famous coast to coast United States run spawned two movies in the 80's. These days, the endeavor is something people take on by themselves and it is more difficult than ever due to law enforcement. It is essentially a one-car rally with the clock as the opponent. Times have dropped over the years with technology and horsepower as the main weapons for those attempting the feat. A tuned E63 sedan is certainly a good choice for cross-country trip. It is fast, comfortable, and can hold a ton of gear. The three gentlemen responsible for the new record (Toman, Tabbutt, and Chadwick) didn't just break the old record of 28 hours and 30 minutes set in 2013, they crushed it. Set some time aside and watch the video below that explains not only the event but what went into the new record. BoostAddict wishes to convey its respect of not only the new record but the fortitude necessary to attempt it. The Cannonball run represents a sort of freedom and rebellious attitude that once defined American culture. As long as people continue to attempt it, that part of America will live on.
