    It is definitely new for us or any of our beta testers. Flex fuel needed to be validated on larger stock turbos and it works as it did on smaller turbos which was expected. The fuel system requirements go from stock to run E85 on an S6 to considerable on an RS7 which is unrelated to flex fuel itself as it does not need any other tables blending although many more need to be altered. Black Market Racing are installing low pressure fuel system upgrades soon. Yeah, the combos of specs are a bit to keep up with, has been a lot of work.

    So do you have an upgraded LPFP solution? I posted about this before so I don't think this is the first one you guys did but maybe the first a dealer in Europe did? Is that right? Maybe I'm mistaken as that was an S6 you guys posted: https://www.audiboost.com/content.php?11495-Dyno-Spectrum-DS1-ethanol-flex-fuel-tune-only-results-on-a-2016-Audi-C7-S6-4-0-TFSI-V8-200-awtq-picked-up-Dyno-Spectrum-DS1-ethanol-flex-fuel-tune-only-results-on-a-2016-Audi-C7-S6-4-0-TFSI-V8-200-awtq-picked-up Also: https://www.audiboost.com/content.php?11469-Dyno-Spectrum-DS1-to-support-real-time-E85-flex-fuel-tuning-for-the-Audi-4-0-TFSI-V8

    It may not be broadcasting its SSID. It should be able to be silent if the user chooses.

    The last two were the only fair races with consistent honking, and the 720S didn’t drop more than a car length back. Not bad considering the long list of mods it takes to be an “LMR1000” ZR1.

    Porsche produces all of their 911 Turbo engine blocks out of aluminum. The 997.2 generation switched to aluminum from the classic GT1 (Mezger) iron block and it is aluminum used ever since. That makes the block lighter but as boost and cylinder pressure increase with Porsche upping the power block integrity eventually becomes an issue. We see stock internal Porsche 991 Turbo 3.8 blocks holding up to lots of power but Porsche durability testing and aftermarket testing are different things. Not to mention, Porsche knows there is a segment that buys the 911 Turbo to modify it and to keep up with the big boys the Turbo will need to be able to take abuse. Porsche is increasing 992 Turbo S horsepower to ~650 stock and that figure is probably underrated. They are doing this with a revised intake, manifolds, intercooler, and larger VTG turbochargers. The bigger turbos will push more air. The 991.1 Turbo and Turbo S shared the same VTG's and struggled to top the 997.2 in bolt on performance. The 997.2 Turbo S did run 9's with bolt ons. The 992 Turbo S will be the strongest bolt on tuned Porsche Turbo yet on the factory turbochargers. We might see a high 9.X in the 1/4 mile out of it stock meaning it is going to go deep into the 9's tuned. With the new 8-speed PDK (it will share the Carrera S ratios but with a different final drive) the car is going to be a monster out of the hole. The PDK is more compact but heavier than the 7-speed it replaces so it sounds like Porsche made sure it is beefed up for 992 Turbo duty. The front differential is also watercooled and strengthened: All signs point to a driveline reinforced to take a serious beating and Porsche would not add iron liners at additional cost just for fun. The 992 Turbo should be epic.

    93 octane pump gas results are important as not only will the majority of MKV Supras see pump fuel the majority of tuned examples will not go beyond what the factory turbo offers. The MHD Stage 2 paired with a catless downpipe is the perfect daily driven recipe. There is plenty of punch picked up while keeping things reliable and not pushing the factory turbo too far. Just over 100 horsepower at wheels was picked up over stock: Notice the torque curve is not some crazy stump puller for peak figures but smooth and linear mirroring the factory curve just with far more area under that curve. The top end holds nicely toward redline allowing for a nice overall area increase in power on the top end from 4500 rpm on. Solid, reliable, and repeatable results.

    You may remember this LMR1000 tuned C7 Corvette ZR1 from a video last month where it absolutely destroys a tuned Lamborghini Aventador SVJ. Well, that same ZR1 now picks on a stronger opponent in the form of a McLaren 720S. This 720S must be stock as how else do you explain the way it gets pulled? These are not even runs. Pulling away from a 720S with ease like this truly points to a supremely fast car. Now let's see some runs against modified 720's to make this more interesting.

    You are going to see M256 tuning pick up as more Mercedes models roll out with the motor. This is the new Mercedes modular engine architecture which is very similar to what BMW, Porsche, and basically all German OEM's are doing to cut cost by sharing engine parts among various displacements. The W213 E53 AMG sedan and the C238 E53 AMG coupe variant both have this motor. Output is 429 horsepower stock and Weistec can raise this by 43 horsepower and 90 lb-ft of torque. Add in the catless downpipe and output goes up by 58 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of torque. No dynographs yet. ECU tune product page: https://www.weistec.com/m256-ecu-tune.html M256 downpipe product page: https://www.weistec.com/m256-downpipe.html There are quite a few M256 powered models so expect much of this to carry over and for more products to come: EAR MAKE MODEL TRIM ENGINE 2020 MERCEDES-BENZ GLE53 AMG 4MATIC (V167) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2020 MERCEDES-BENZ CLS53 AMG 4MATIC (C257) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2019 MERCEDES-BENZ CLS53 AMG 4MATIC (C257) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2018 MERCEDES-BENZ CLS53 AMG 4MATIC (C257) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2020 MERCEDES-BENZ E53 AMG 4MATIC (W213) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2019 MERCEDES-BENZ E53 AMG 4MATIC (W213) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2018 MERCEDES-BENZ E53 AMG 4MATIC (W213) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2020 MERCEDES-BENZ AMG GT53 4 DOOR 4MATIC (X290) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2019 MERCEDES-BENZ AMG GT53 4 DOOR 4MATIC (X290) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2020 MERCEDES-BENZ AMG GT43 4 DOOR 4MATIC (X290) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2019 MERCEDES-BENZ AMG GT43 4 DOOR 4MATIC (X290) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2020 MERCEDES-BENZ AMG GT43 4 DOOR BASE (X290) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2019 MERCEDES-BENZ AMG GT43 4 DOOR BASE (X290) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2020 MERCEDES-BENZ GLE450 BASE (V167) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2019 MERCEDES-BENZ GLE450 BASE (V167) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2020 MERCEDES-BENZ CLS450 BASE (C257) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2019 MERCEDES-BENZ CLS450 BASE (C257) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2018 MERCEDES-BENZ CLS450 BASE (C257) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2020 MERCEDES-BENZ S500 BASE (W222) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2019 MERCEDES-BENZ S500 BASE (W222) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2018 MERCEDES-BENZ S500 BASE (W222) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2017 MERCEDES-BENZ S500 BASE (W222) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2020 MERCEDES-BENZ S450 BASE (W222) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2019 MERCEDES-BENZ S450 BASE (W222) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2018 MERCEDES-BENZ S450 BASE (W222) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256) 2017 MERCEDES-BENZ S450 BASE (W222) TURBOCHARGED 3L I6 (M256)

    No, it is the outgoing 4.0T so like an RS7 with an avant body. The new RS6 we would like to support when or if it can be flashed through OBD without flashing it first directly at the ECU.

    We all knew the Predator 5.2 V8 was going to be strong but damn did Ford deliver and then some! The 2020 GT500 is just getting into owner hands and fortunately we have some Dynojet figures to go on in both SAE and STD correction factors. Let's start with STD correction topping 700 to the tires: SAE correction produces a more realistic 684 rear wheel horsepower: Considering the blower capability you can sneeze on this motor and make 800+ rwhp. It is only a couple horses shy of a Demon on pump fuel: BoostAddict expected output between a Hellcat and a Demon but not for Ford to basically deliver Demon power out of the box. Well, they did and the GT500 is even underrated at its 776 horse crank rating. It is going to take 700 horsepower to the wheels to begin to play with the big boys in 2020. This may be the peak of the golden age of horsepower right here.

    This is not the same RS6 model coming to the US right? If not, will DS1 support the US version? Awesome result!

    Not sure but it sure is cool. Car did great but started to run out of LPFP. Also using our new custom boost control along with all the other features of the DS1! Dyno graphs to follow soon, along with the full release! Thanks to our great customer Michael Morris for testing with us and to Black Market on building the car and letting us use the dyno!

    Vency of Madness Motorsport Bulgaria is doing very well with his RS6. He is using our DS1 as one of our beta testers and finding that the features and logging are helping him unlock the most out of his great hardware. He is great to work with and very experienced and skilled with these engines. "Spec of car is basically Turbosystems Stage3 Turbos (prototype) , Full 76mm exhaust , Air to air intercooler , SRM fuel upgrades , Will not mention all small parts like sparks , coils and intakes" Sorry dyno is out of focus, but it is a nice wide power curve and about 1050 HP, will get more with higher numbers and resolution.
