    AMS announced their Nissan GTR VR38DETT Cast Aluminum Intake Manifold last year and the piece is absolutely gorgeous (and expensive!). It is nice to see it mounted though in the engine bay and damn does it add a bit of eye candy. The other red anodized touches in the engine bay just bring it all together. Almost a shame to close the hood:

    Is it awesome FCA allowed Jeep to stuff the supercharged 707 horsepower Hellcat V8 under the hood of the Jeep Grand Cherokee? Absolutely! Did it turn out as planned? Hell no! The 2017 X6 M is the better sports SUV. Why? Because despite having 'only' 567 horsepower from its twin turbocharged 4.4 liter S63TU V8 the X6 M is just a hair off the Trackhawk in acceleration: The Trackhawk with its 707 horsepower manages a 12.0 @ 115. So that big bad twin screwed 6.2 liter V8 only gets 1 mph of trap speed on the X6 M? Sure, it is faster but not by much of anything worth mentioning. The X6 M also runs circles around the Trackhawk when it comes to handling: .89g is all the Trackhawk manages. The X6 M also brakes better getting down from 70 mph in 153 feet while the Trackhawk takes 168 feet: The only thing the Jeep really has going for it is that it is mildly cheaper at $87k while the X6 M starts at $104k. It doesn't even weigh less. Honestly? The X6 M is worth the premium. It handles better, the interior is better, it is more luxurious, and it is the sportier SUV and ultimately more fun to drive. If the 1 mph of trap speed difference bothers you, throw on a tune and run low 11's at over 123 miles per hour. The Trackhawk is quite simply a letdown. BMW may not build the best driver's cars in the world anymore but their performance SUV's are the best in the business.

    Great data here for the new 991.2 Turbo S which by all accounts is a monster stock let alone when modified. The owner got a tune which he does not disclose and began to lose power when he switched to the ByDesign 991.2 Turbo intercooler upgrade. He went back to the stock intercoolers after this but ByDesign urged him to get a tune from them to take advantage of the intercoolers. Let's start with the stock baseline for the 2017 911 Turbo S on a Mustang overlaid with the difference when the ByDesign headers and exhaust are added: 489 horsepower at all four wheels and 529 lb-ft of torque at the wheels on 91 octane pump gas completely stock. The ByDesign headers and exhaust show gains through the curve but peak horsepower does not increase. Peak torque goes up to 540 lb-ft at the wheels. Now let's look at what happens with the ByDesign intercoolers installed with a competitor's tune and then the switch to the ByDesign tune: You are probably thinking, who did the original tune? Considering how much power and torque ByDesign picked up BoostAddict.com would like to know as well. Check out these three runs with the ByDesign intercoolers, exhaust, headers, IPD Plenum, and tune: Power and torque drop each run as they should but ByDesign extracted a total of 626 horsepower and 646 lb-ft of torque at the wheels out of the car on 91 octane pump gas with their bolt on modifications. That is serious, serious horsepower and torque at all four wheels on a Mustang dyno on 91 octane pump gas.

    I think we're going to find out they tried to get the FISA warrant retroactively. Essentially, they had to invent the Russia story to cover their asses.

    The truth about the spying is about to be released. The tip of the iceberg so to speak. There are still people out there who really believe Obama and the DNC did nothing wrong. Everyone is about to learn how the FBI, CIA, NSA, IRS, etc., were weaponized against a political opponent. The only reason this is coming out is because Hillary lost. They tried to find dirt, didn't, and thought they would win anyway but.. justice is coming.

    BMW did not build an E91 M3 wagon during the E9X model run. Why? Because BMW would rather sell you an X1, X2, X3, X10813018, or whatever X model number they are on now. It is true that BMW's most profitable models are the X-Series vehicles but that does not mean an E91 M3 wagon would not be awesome to have in the portfolio. If you disagree, take a look at the homebuilt version below. Someone in Poland took it upon themselves to convert an E91 into an M3 Wagon using M3 body pieces and the S65 V8 motor. Oh, and it has a DCT transmission. And just listen to the exhaust note... damn! Hard to argue against how badass this wagon is:

    The Cadillac ATS-V is a sales failure. BoostAddict can tell you exactly why. It is not more desirable of a car than a BMW M3 or Mercedes-AMG C63. It lacks the looks, polish, and performance of the aforementioned models. In order for Cadillac to be taken seriously as a rival they need to offer more for less money until they prove they are on top. BMW, Mercedes, and Audi all have the market perception of superiority. Cadillac simply is not on par just yet despite the strides forward the V models have made. The ATS-V performance, looks, and interior quality for the money just quite honestly stink in the luxury sport sedan segment. The chassis is great (despite being pretty heavy), but who cares if nobody wants the car built on top of it? Instead of messing around with the LF4 V6 and trying to mimic their German rivals with a turbocharged six-cylinder Cadillac just should have stuck a big V8 under the hood. The LF4 probably would have been too much to ask for but an LT1 naturally aspirated V8 realistically could be done and the ATS-V would offer something unique in the segment. Instead, we got a bad try of Americans trying to be Germans. Note, the CTS-V succeeds precisely because it isn't mimicking the Germans. It is going to fun to see the result of this swap.

    Everything might not be as rosy at Tesla as they claim. The Model 3 is proving problematic to launch full scale as they intended and there have been delays which Tesla is being sued over. In addition, two key engineers at Tesla recently left. Jason Mendez the senior director for manufacturing engineering and Will McColl the senior manager for equipment engineering are gone. Speculation is that this ties into the Model 3 problems. Tesla isn't commenting though and the only statement is from McColl: Maybe time to pump the brakes on those Tesla Roadster claims.
