    We couldn't leave it alone. On our dyno we noticed that the intercooler was getting pretty hot and with heat a by product of power and heat can kill power we have custom fabricated a larger intercooler for our application. After the fabrication and install we were able to tell a huge difference in the temperature when performing testing on our dyno. We started off with a core and custom fabricated the end tanks and tubes. I'll let the photos tell the rest. Custom fabricated mounts and testing fitment of the core in stock location. Welding up the end tanks Test fitting front bumper Tacking the pipes

    OK, compare to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the UK, Japan, Italy, UAE, Saudi, etc. Compare it on a per capita basis. I love the fact the answer for some Americans to gun violence is....are you ready for it....more guns.

    I love seeing enthusiast-grade cards like that even though I'm never going to get one. I'm more concerned with bang for the buck value. Yeah, this card will give you 4k with ease. Do tell us how it went if you decide to go for it bro.

    Here is an example, how many cops were shot in the US this week. How many cops were stabbed in Adam in the past five years or shot in Adam in the past 10 years....i rest my case.

    What shooting deaths in my backyard? Amsterdam is having a lot of problems. You think this is the first stabbing? Weird they are chanting for Trump while Paris burns. Seems the world is laughing at Macron...

    Are you can’t even control your backyard which has more shooting deaths on any given day than ADAM has non-lethal stabbings in what 10 years? trump continues to step on his dick and every country in the world is laughing at him. Next thing your going to tell me is that trump has arranged big trade concessions with china. on a serious note i believe trump means the best for the us in his heart but he is used to running private companies where he is not accountable to anyone.

    PorscheBoost Porsche Performance Forum member @flsupraguy tuned his 991.2 GTS with Cobb and he did a bit of research concerning supporting mods on the forums. To be fair to Cobb, their OTS 991.2 3.0 tune is not designed to work in conjunction with all supporting mods. It is not surprising a car can develop driveability issues when you add in headers, a plenum, and a catless exhaust the tune was not designed around. The issue really comes down to the difference between something custom tailored for the application and a one-size fits all piece of software. Naturally, you want a custom tailored approach from a quality tuner when adding in supplemental modifications. Here is what @flsupraguy had to say: PorscheBoost does not doubt his impressions regarding driveability whatsoever. There is no doubt he is happier with the custom tune. PorscheBoost spoke with Hydra's tuner and he is knowledgeable and talented. No doubt a custom tune by a quality tuner will improve on an OTS tune. What is not fair to Cobb is that the re-tune is being portrayed as picking up 30+ horsepower. This is the Cobb baseline: Here is the Hydra result: Notice anything there? Something major like two completely different dynos? It is not fair to Cobb for the Hydra tune on a Dynojet to be portrayed as picking up 30 horsepower at the wheels versus Cobb on a Mustang dyno. PorscheBoost asked Hydra why they did not do a baseline overlay. They claimed they did not have time. Frankly, once the car is on the dyno the excuse about 'no time' doesn't hold water. Plus, if they did not do a baseline what exactly were they working from? There had to be some baseline pulls or subsequent pulls. There was not just one pull. Hydra had no problem mentioning they re-tuned a Cobb car yet if you are going to mention a competitor directly by name it is only fair to provide a proper baseline when making claims of improvement. Many other tuners do not even mention competitors they re-tune directly for the sake of professionalism or being seen as taking cheap shots. The fair area to criticize Cobb here is not in power output but in a lack of Stage 2 software and protuner options. Cobb's tuners are just as talented (if not more so) than others and have done custom tuning applications on the 991.2 3.0. Why Stage 2 and Protune applications for the 991.2 3.0 are taking so long to roll out from Cobb is anyone's guess. That certainly is not stopping some tuners from marketing at Cobb's expense in the meantime.

    The Nissan 350Z is a pretty old design at this point but it is also a very fun to drive sports car. The vehicle is well balanced and fairly light at ~3500 pounds depending on options. Mostly, the drivetrain is dated especially compared to newer Nissan vehicles making it underpowered by today's standards. The Hellcat V8 certainly is not underpowered with over 700 horsepower. This motor will not make the 350Z chassis better balanced or lighter but it will give a huge kick in the pants especially when it comes to torque. Does it fit? Kind of. It requires quite a bit of cutting into the car but this guy is determined to get it to fit in. A 350Z or 370Z with a Hellcat certainly sounds like fun on paper. In reality, it isn't simple to do. The owner is stuck at this point regarding how to proceed. Hopefully he figures it out. It is unfortunate Nissan will not consider a large naturally aspirated motor for the next generation Z as it certainly would be different from everything else on the market. It certainly is time for a new Z though and Nissan tipped their hand as to what they want to do.

    BMW stuck their new 3-Series in the back at the Los Angeles Auto Show making it tough to get pictures from behind. It almost seemed to be off in its own little corner instead of front and center but it certainly was the star of the BMW lineup in BimmerBoost's view. Why? Because for one the updated B58 motor is offering a ton of power for a non-M 3-Series and the design is sublime. The G20 almost seems like a mini-5 series. It feels and looks fairly large for a 3. The exterior is elegant and more refined than the F30. The lights and front grill in particular just are a smoother design. Inside the car looks great with contrasting stitching and LED lighting aiding the design. It certainly looks upscale again for a 3-Series. The M340i xDrive with a 382 horsepower B58 is going to be a bargain BMW dragster. It really will not be giving up much to say an F80 M3 as off the line the all wheel drive will be a huge advantage and the B58 is no slouch although we will need to see if the new design poses problems for tuners. The G20 M340i xDrive design bodes well for the upcoming G80 M3 but it sure seems like it will more of a small M5 than Motorsport inspired design. You could even argue it is taking on Audi characteristics. That seems to be what the market wants. No doubt it will be a hit. #laas2018

    We are all hungry for C8 Corvette (if that is what they end up calling it) news. Chevy is keeping leaks tight but we do have video of the C8.R taking shape and Chevrolet will of course be racing their fancy new mid-engine chassis. The C7.R program was a great success so the C8.R has big shoes to fill. It was captured testing at Sebring and the race car sounds and looks amazing. How much of the design including the engine the street car will resemble we will just have to wait and see but if it is anything like the race car the C8 is going to be a home run.

    The W213 Mercedes-AMG E-class design just looks so good as a wagon. A 10-second family hauler? Why not? Weistec's software tune alone helps push the M177 twin turbo 4.0 liter V8 under the hood to 625 horsepower and 680 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. The baseline is 568 wheel horsepower and 617 lb-ft of wheel torque on 91 octane pump: Almost 700 lb-ft of torque at the wheels on pump gas will get that wagon moving. With exhaust modifications it would likely easily clear that figure as well. The only downside is it weighs 4700 pounds which is more like an SUV than a car.

    Very nice runs here between two BMW's. The F10 M5 obviously sporting the larger 4.4 liter twin turbo S63TU V8 while the E92 335i (wearing an M3 body kit) has a 3.0 liter N54 with upgraded turbochargers from VTT (Vargas Turbo Technologies). Both cars have passengers but the 335i is roughly 700 pounds lighter to begin with. In the first run, the M5 gets the better start and pulls. In the subsequent runs where the 335i gets a better start, it gets an edge and ultimately the cars seem quite even. Great pulls especially considering the 335i is manual. Mods: F10 M5: GT Performance Stage 2 tune and downpipes 335: VTT Turbos, methanol injection, full exhaust, intercooler upgrade, coil pack upgrade, intake, flywheel and clutch upgrade, race bucket seats, lightweight wheels

    Picking up power on a Porsche 991.2 GT3 obviously is not easy. The motor is in a high state of tune from the factory with the naturally aspirated 4.0 liter revving to 9000 rpm and producing over 500 horsepower at the crank. That does not mean there is not power to be gained. While turbo motors benefit from increased boost pressure with the GT3 your options really are improving the breathing with exhaust mods and getting a custom dyno tune. Hydra Motor Works was able to pick up 32 peak whp with some very nice mid-range gains: Please excuse the low resolution graph. The result is with Kline headers, 93 octane, Hydra tune, and muffler bypass. 442 naturally aspirated wheel horsepower from 4.0 liters is incredible. Imagine what these motors would do with a little bit of boost thrown at them?

    McLaren does convertibles better than anyone else. Why? Because there is barely a performance penalty that comes with dropping a McLaren's top. They use a carbon fiber roof and keep things very simple. The weight penalty on the 720S is roughly 100 pounds. Just look at the mechanism in action: Quick, simple, and gorgeous. If that additional 100 pounds of weight bothers you there are other areas where weight can be saved to get it close if not even with the coupe. Essentially, there is little sacrifice. Well, except for the sacrifice from your bank account. There is roughly a $30k penalty for dropping the top compared to the coupe. At this level, will that stop anyone? Configurator:

    I get that its light but its competition from say 200k-600k is also light, also mid/rear engine, also dual clutch, the answer has to be in its brains and how it manages wheel slip compared to everyone else. A TT power plant, and dct is nothing new at this point.
