    Mia culpa. While I could explain new policies vs. expanding / rolling back existing you can take that win to your definition of MAGA. Glad you feel so strongly about facts. You should try holding the president to the same standard. No issue with Trump lying saying he's done more than any president in regards to legislation, when most have done more in half the time tho right? No issue with Trump not stepping down from his businesses and then as a big F you, using White House attorneys to work on defending that anti constitutional move right? LOL President can bend you over and do what he wants but don't let random guy on car forum misrepresent anything!!

    This BMW E92 335i belongs to BimmerBoost member @PureEvilN54 and he recently swapped a DCT (dual clutch) transmission into his 335i. Pulling off the physical swap is one thing but he states he is able to get launch values others are not. For example, 3500 and 5000 rpm launches. In the video below he demonstrates a 3500 rpm launch that builds 4 psi off boost at the line and he tells BimmerBoost that thus far he is the only one doing this launch control RPM value on a DCT swapped N54. BimmerBoost would love to see confirmation of that 5000 rpm launch.

    TTE (The Turbo Engineers) in Germany has a hybrid S55 turbocharger upgrade available for the F80 M3 and F82 M4. When it comes to hybrid turbos Pure Turbos pretty much dominates the S55 platform but it is interesting to finally see some results from the TTE turbochargers. Another interesting point is that this F80 M3 is tuned through the MHD F-Series OBD-II platform. Up until now, most upgraded turbo F80 M3 and F82 M4 vehicles were tuned through the PTF Bootmod3 system. The results look good: 717 horsepower at the crank is strong. However, what kind of dyno is being used? We need to see more numbers on a variety of dynamometers to get a better idea of output. Additionally, to see how this stacks up to Pure Turbos efforts. As for the MHD F-Series platform it is flashed through OBD-II and a handheld device except the ECU must be unlocked physically first. This is no different from the PTF Bootmod3 system in that respect. No doubt European members will be more interested in the TTE S55 turbos than those in the USA.

    Ford updated the Mustang Coyote V8 with dual fuel injection for the 2018 model year. Adding both port and direct injection to engines is all the rage right now. The fuel system change allows a bump in compression for the Mustang GT from 11.0:1 to 12.0:1. The 5.0 liter BMW S85 V10 from way back in 2005 offered 12.0:1 compression with port injection alone. It also was rated at 507 horsepower. The 2018 Mustang GT 5.0 is rated at 460 horsepower yet it shows the same output as the lofty BMW V10 on a Dynojet: The 420 lb-ft rating is conservative as well with the car hitting 390 lb-t of torque at the wheels. This blows E60 M5's 320 lb-ft of torque at the wheels out of the water. The motor is also revving to 7500 rpm now. Still short of the lofty 8200 rpm redline of the GT350 Mustang Voodoo V8 but it is definitely a greater hp per dollar bargain. For reference, the Voodoo offers 12.0:1 compression and puts down 467 horsepower to the tires. The 2018 Mustang GT is offering a lot of value for its $35k starting price.

    Why not just call this the Tesla dragster? This is a serious game changer if it really performs at these levels.

    300 pounds is a lot of weight. Think of it this way, this 2017 Porsche 911 Targa 4 is hauling around an extra refridgerator compared to a standard rear wheel drive Porsche 911 Carrera. It shows in the performance metrics. The PDK 3614 pound Targa 4 gets through the 1/4 mile in 12.1 seconds at 115 miles per hour. How does this compare to a standard 911 Carrera? The PDK C2 runs 11.8 @ 118 in the 1/4 mile. Essentially, exactly 3/10's and 3 miles per hour off due to the 300 pound weight difference. The Targa models are the heaviest in the lineup partially because they come standard with all wheel drive. Most buyers likely do not care. The Targa does offer a beautiful open air experience with unique styling. If you are into performance and the driving experience above all else, get the rear wheel drive coupe. If you want a hardtop convertible, get the Targa. Car and Driver sums it up well: VEHICLE TYPE: rear-engine, all-wheel-drive, 2+2-passenger, 2-door targa PRICE AS TESTED: $128,170 (base price: $112,850) ENGINE TYPE: twin-turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 24-valve flat-6, aluminum block and heads, direct fuel injection DISPLACEMENT: 182 cu in, 2981 cc POWER: 370 hp @ 6500 rpm TORQUE: 331 lb-ft @ 1700 rpm TRANSMISSION: 7-speed dual-clutch automatic with manual shifting mode DIMENSIONS: WHEELBASE: 96.5 in LENGTH: 177.1 in WIDTH: 72.9 in HEIGHT: 50.7 in PASSENGER VOLUME: 70 cu ft CARGO VOLUME: 4 cu ft CURB WEIGHT: 3614 lb C/D TEST RESULTS: Zero to 60 mph: 3.6 sec Zero to 100 mph: 9.2 sec Zero to 130 mph: 15.9 sec Zero to 150 mph: 23.3 sec Rolling start, 5-60 mph: 4.8 sec Top gear, 30-50 mph: 2.7 sec Top gear, 50-70 mph: 3.0 sec Standing ¼-mile: 12.1 sec @ 115 mph Top speed (drag limited, mfr's claim): 178 mph Braking, 70-0 mph: 143 ft Roadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 0.99 g C/D FUEL ECONOMY: Observed: 20 mpg 75-mph highway driving: 31 mpg Highway range: 550 miles EPA FUEL ECONOMY: Combined/city/highway: 24/22/28 mpg

    The new F150 Raptor may get all the headlines and some people may find the 600 all wheel horsepower it is putting out from its 3.5 liter twin turbo Ecoboost in the aftermarket impressive. The truth of the matter is that when it comes to power and on-road truck performance the SVT Lightning is the king. This is hardly the quickest and fastest Lightning yet a 9.65 @ 139.56 out of an F150 is absolutely mental. It is amazing how effortless it looks as well. The truck simply hooks with a highly impressive 1.351 60 foot courtesy of the drag suspension and Hoosiers. The 5.4 liter V8 is built of course and features a JDM aluminum block. The Whipple 2.3 liter twin screw does the heavy lifting. Anyone else hungry for a new Lightning?
