    A nice spate of Italian naturally V12 tuning results posted as of late, eh? You had Fabspeed post their results with a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ as well as Dyno Spectrum tackle a Ferrari 812 Superfast. Well, Gintani got their hands on a naturally aspirated Italian V12 paired to an all wheel drive system. All wheel drive, a DCT transmission, and a naturally aspirated V12 makes the GTC4Lusso very unique in today's marketplace and a very rare Ferrari in particular. It is a love it or hate type of vehicle and put FerrariBoost.com in the love it column. The 13.5:1 compression 6.3 liter V12 makes 681 horsepower stock. That translates to 582 horsepower at all four wheels on Gintani's Mustang dynamometer. A very healthy baseline. Squeezing power out of the high strung V12 is not easy but Gintani picked up some incredible gains: With a tune and full exhaust they are making 645 horsepower to all four wheels past 8000 rpm. That is on 91 octane pump gas no less. A gain of 63 all wheel horsepower. You will be hard pressed to get more out of the motor without going to methanol injection or race gas. Now if only someone would add some boost to one of these...

    Dual-injection on the Audi 2.5 TFSI EA855 EVO motor sure makes life easier when it comes to upgrading the fuel system and especially the injectors. The port injection system in particular is much easier to upgrade in this respect. If you go to a larger hybrid turbo you will want these: Set of 5 BOSCH EV14 Based Injectors Precision Cut Atomiser Loom Adapters included 7 point multi hole High Impedance Excellent Response Characteristics 980cc/min = 670g/min = 89lb/hr @ 3bar 12 ohm resistance E85 compatible Plug & play drop-in fitment Needs Specific Software Adjustment TTE Global has these in stock: https://tteglobal.com/audi/rs3/8v.2-2.5-tfsi/186/sharp-motorsport-upgrade-audi-2.5-tfsi-evo-ea855-mpi-injector-set

    Well, this this is the official beginning of the German brands effort to take the driver out of the equation. It is just a matter of time before your car drives you around and that is exactly what Audi, BMW, and Daimler are partnering together to accomplish. Clearly they want one standards and to lower costs: The argument for removing the driver and trusting the computers they will develop will no doubt center around safety, emissions, etc. The cars will be appliances. It is just a matter of time. Source

    Well, another day another Supra B58 output record. Two records here actually with the most powerful boost only MKV Supra at 559 horsepower to the wheels as well as the highest output overall so far at 622 horsepower to the wheels. Not to mention this is the first A90/B58 to crack the 600 wheel mark: The mod list? - Pure Turbos Supra B58 turbocharger at 20 psi ($2395 retail) - Catless downpipe - Race Gas The 622 figure was hit with a 50 shot of nitrous which is great to see disclosed. One run boost only, one run with nitrous specified, and nothing hidden or misleading. The stock plugs are apparently the limitation here. Pure Turbos told BoostAddict the turbo should be good for 650 whp boost only.

    These are GPS results but boy are they promising for the new BMW F97 X3M and F98 X4M. The S58 looks like a powerhouse and if it is muscling these heavy SUV's into the 11's stock imagine what the upcoming G80 M3 is going to do with this motor. Our friends at Fuel-It! provided the Drag GPS readouts: The trap speed and 60 foot unfortunately are not shown but they are 114.55 and 1.85 respectively. Think of it this way, a stock X4M can beat a 707 horsepower Jeep Trackhawk in a drag race. The aftermarket is going to turn these into monsters.

    Gintani is seemingly tuning every Italian car in Southern California these days. The Lamborghini Urus will see quite a bit of tuning due to the 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 under the hood. There is quite a bit to gain and the motor is a powerhouse. These are Mustang dyno results so kindly keep that in mind. The baseline with a full exhaust and catless downpipes on 91 octane is 608 all wheel horsepower and 644 lb-t of torque to the wheels. After Gintani's custom dyno tune? 683 all wheel horsepower and 734 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels: It is not a high revver but more about torque down low as it should be in this heavy beast. Still, it makes nice power to 6500 rpm. With higher octane or methanol injection the car could likely clear 700 to all four wheels on the factory turbos on the conservative Mustang dyno. That is incredible. Wait until we see these things get turbocharger upgrades...

    The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is supposed to be Aston Martin's no nonsense high performance effort. With 715 horsepower from a twin turbo V12 as well as race tuned suspension and lightweight parts, it certainly is a valiant effort. That still does not change the fact this is a heavy and expensive luxury vehicle. Not to mention one with great looks and exclusivity exactly as an Aston Martin should be. The DBS Superleggera comes in at 4200 pounds yet it still manages an impressive laptime of 1:54.6. It does like quite a handful to hustle around the track though. The times below put the effort in context. Aston Martin did a commendable job with the car although it is not going to challenge any top sports cars. Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO: 01.48,00 min Lamborghini Huracan Evo: 01.49,00 min Porsche 911 Carrera S (992): 01.53,30 min Aston Martin DBS Superleggera: 01:54:60 min Audi R8 V10 Spyder Performance: 01.55,20 min Lamborghini Urus: 01.57,10 min Porsche 718 Boxster T (PDK) 01.58.80 min Audi TTRS Coupe: 01.58.80 min Toyota GR Supra: 01.58.80 min

    A ton of great information below from BimmerBoost member @CobraMarty who is known for his MILV's (Modified Intake Lift Valvetronic supports). He recently got a hold of a B58 cylinder head for development and took photos as well as provided his impressions. Enjoy: Didn't sleep well so I got up early and took a pair of calipers to the B58 head that I have. Ports are BIG. B58 Intake is Oval shape- 35.7mm tall x 50mm wide. Not 'rectoval' like the N54/N55 at 29mm x 50mm. B58 Exhaust is also Oval- 29.2mm x 45.7mm wide. Not round like the N54/N55. B58 Valves measure- Intake 29.9-30.0mm, Exhaust 28.4mm. N52/N54/N55 Exhaust valves are all 28mm. N52 intake valves- 34.2mm, N54- 31.4mm, N55- 32mm. So just by 'looks', the B58 head is an improvement. Exhaust especially, Bigger ports and Bigger valves = more flow. Intake, maybe not so much, Bigger ports and smaller valves. IDK, but maybe that combination is better flowing than smaller ports and bigger valves. Or is there another reason or something else going on? The intake valves look to be moved out and right at the edge of the cylinder bore. It doesn't look like a bigger intake valve diameter would fit. Don't throw stones about the B58's 'smaller' intake valves just yet. Interesting is the different engines actual measurements. N52- 85mm bore x 88mm stroke = 2996cc and has the biggest intake valve 34.2mm. Cam is I-255*/E-263* durations. N54/55- 84mm bore x 89.6mm stroke = 2979cc and have 31.4mm and 32mm intake valves. Cams are N54- I-245*/E-261* and N55- I-255*/263* durations. B58- 82mm bore x 94.6mm stroke = 2998cc and has 30mm intake valves which looks to be the largest that would fit the 82mm bore. Cams to be determined. There is a correlation between cylinder bore diameter and intake valve size. Just some simple, basic engine generalities- Bigger bore (bigger intake valve) and shorter stroke make for a higher rev'ing engine. N52 engine. Smaller bore (smaller intake valve) and longer stroke makes for better intake filling and more torque and power across a broader rpm range. B58 engine. Head- very compact latest design, valvetronic eccentric cam and mechanism moved around, No exhaust cam clamshell like Nxx engines, Heavy, must be thicker in all the right places Supports for Intake Valvetronic- up high right on top, easy access, easy removal and replacement, hint MILVs? HPFP- mounts up high right on top, easy access, driven by 3 lobed on exhaust cam, easy to upgrade/replace, hint Xtreme DI Exhaust ports and close up exhaust port- big oval Intake ports and close up intake port- big oval Combustion Chamber and close up- very compact Valvetronic Eccentric cam Motor- externally mounted, up front, easy access, has hex screw to rotate manually Without a doubt, BMW did their homework. The B58 engine looks very promising!!

    We’ve updated our Stage 1, Stage 2, and Stage 3 IS38 ECU Upgrades bringing new features, power, and safety. This is mostly available in our newly released 2019 GTI / A3 ECU Upgrades and is now available for all previous years in North America. Key Updates: – Better power delivery with flatter torque, and higher peak power – Various protection routines added and tweaked – Linear pedal mapping – Tire spin protection added (FWD files only, running an AWD file disables it) – Corrected the digital dash boost gauge – Auto Start / Stop is now inverted and defaults off (Stage 2/3) – Optional pops and bangs have 3 options: off, normal, and aggressive – Specific files were created for FWD and AWD drivetrains – Specific files were created for 6MT and DSG gearboxes – Low torque files added – Low octane (87 R+M/2) files added Tuning Details: Using a Kistler in-cylinder pressure transducer system, we greatly improved combustion efficiency and reduced in-cylinder combustion pressure while delivering the same output. Furthermore low-RPM torque is now limited in taller gears for greater LSPI protection. Essentially the engine experiences less strain but creates the same power. Using exhaust gas pressure transducers, thermocouples and turbine shaft speed sensors, we were able to more accurately adjust various speed and pressure models within the ECU, allowing us to reduce turbo shaft speed without sacrificing power. In doing so, boost control was greatly improved. We were able to enable and calibrate various turbo shaft speed protection routines within the ECU that were not enabled or calibrated on all ECU part numbers from the factory. Finally, turbo surge protection routines were recalibrated to prevent low rpm high load compressor surge in various conditions. Essentially boost control is improved, protection routines were added and the turbo doesn’t spin as fast or work as hard to create the same power. Pedal mapping was altered to provide a more linear feel. This gives the driver a more predictable pedal map. The map matches the OEM feel from 0-60% throttle and then increases linearly from 60-95% at peak torque. Furthermore first gear torque reductions were recalibrated in such a way as to not alter the pedal mapping sensitivity. Lastly, the valve-lift transition point is greatly improved during part-throttle operation for smoother operation. Vehicles equipped with the digital boost gauge will now see a more accurate gauge representation that shows vacuum all the way up to 3,000 mbar of absolute boost. The optional exhaust crackle feature has been improved based on customer feedback, and the stationary rev limited has been increased to 5,000 rpm for improved free-revving sound. Furthermore a louder and more aggressive option is available. Specific files for manual and DSG exist. Auto start/stop behavior is now inverted so the feature is turned off by default. Wheel spin is reduced on FWD vehicles with FWD specific software. AWD files are available that do not have this reduction and can be run on FWD vehicles if you so desire. Various other small tweaks related to support tickets and customer feedback was addressed to improve drivability and the driving experience. Lastly, 87 (R+M)/2 or 90 RON modes are now available. Power Figures: APR’s ECU Upgrades are available in multiple flavors, supporting various hardware modifications, fuel grades, torque levels, and options. Power levels are as follows: APR Plus ECU Upgrade: – 290 HP / 320 FT-LBS – 87 Octane APR Stage 1 ECU Upgrade (Low Torque): – 290 HP / 320 FT-LBS – 87 Octane – 323 HP / 326 FT-LBS – 91 Octane – 327 HP / 326 FT-LBS – 93 Octane – 337 HP / 327 FT-LBS – 104 Octane APR Stage 1 ECU Upgrade (High Torque): – 313 HP / 340 FT-LBS – 91 Octane – 321 HP / 351 FT-LBS – 93 Octane – 337 HP / 375 FT-LBS – 104 Octane APR Stage 2 ECU Upgrade (Low Torque) – 334 HP / 338 FT-LBS – 91 Octane – 337 HP / 339 FT-LBS – 93 Octane – 350 HP / 339 FT-LBS – 104 Octane APR Stage 2 ECU Upgrade (High Torque) – 333 HP / 364 FT-LBS – 91 Octane – 337 HP / 371 FT-LBS – 93 Octane – 351 HP / 392 FT-LBS – 104 Octane APR Stage 3 IS38 ECU Upgrade (Low Torque) – 395 HP / 334 FT-LBS – 91 Octane – 395 HP / 334 FT-LBS – 93 Octane – 396 HP / 340 FT-LBS – 104 Octane APR Stage 3 IS38 ECU Upgrade (High Torque) – 395 HP / 376 FT-LBS – 91 Octane – 396 HP / 385 FT-LBS – 93 Octane – 397 HP / 403 FT-LBS – 104 Octane For more information about each stage, compatible hardware, and other details, please visit our product page.

    The thing is they do it all in house. Also, like in the Urus example, they have the resources to deliver upgraded turbos first. For a high end car like that I'd definitely consider TTE over other options and as of right now there are no other options.
