    Yeah VET, ERD, DOGE, and some others are running hard. I bought some VET a few months back(only couple hundred worth) but I'm already up 5x my investment. Wish I had gotten into ERD when I first heard about it a few months back when I bought VET, oh well going to get some now

    If you want your Porsche flat-6 to hold big torque from big boost the connecting rods are likely the first area to address. These forged from SRM (Silly Rabbit Motorsport) are designed to hold 1200+ lb-ft of torque. What is special about them? These rods retail at $1195 for a set.

    Last year BoostAddict wrote about Garrett bringing a production electric turbo or E-Turbo to market in 2021. Well, it seems they will work with Mercedes-AMG who of course will lend their Formula 1 expertise into the mix. Here is how it would work: You can see the central electric motor providing a boost which should in theory eliminate or highly mitigate turbo lag. Yes, this would be larger and heavier than a traditional turbocharger but the efficiency gains would easily offset any weight gain. Mercedes-AMG would be able to go to even smaller motors and there are rumors they might kill off the V8 entirely. What AMG models will get this E-Turbo setup? We do not know yet. With Daimler money troubles who knows if this entire plan does not change completely.

    If you expect to go 911 Turbo hunting with your new Audi RS6, well, hold off on that. This is not even the new 992 Turbo it races but the older 991.2 Turbo S and the heavier convertible version at that. It doesn't matter, the RS6 is demolished. You will definitely want to modify your C8 RS6 to play with a 911 Turbo from a stop and fortunately there are some strong options out there. It is somewhat surprising the beatdown is this large.

    Well Vechain is pumping hard, really hard, nice run: I never sold mine so this is nice to see. I'm still holding a bag but this coin seemingly is going to break into the top 10 by the end of the year. If that happens, nice little profit. The lesson here? Hold.

    Yes, the HGP Turbo Stage 2 tuned C8 Audi RS6 is a monster. You likely saw this RS6 reach an absolutely stunning 226 miles per hour on the Autobahn in a video showing off its acceleration last month. If not, go watch it! What does the Stage 2 HGP tuning package include? Performance increase to 962 PS / 1250 Nm Adapted motor control and removal of the Vmax limitation Modified large-volume air filter box with "HGP-turbo" lettering Sports air filter insert with "HGP-turbo" lettering Large-volume suction hoses (blue or black) Intake manifold in front of the turbocharger with an enlarged cross-section Machined series turbochargers with larger turbine shaft and larger compressor wheel, reinforced axial bearings and enlarged turbocharger inlet Changed boost pressure sensors TÜV registration The diagnostic capability of the vehicle remains intact. The manufacturer cannot overwrite it. Can be retrofitted by us at any time on request. Price: € 23.400, - Installation: € 1,500.00 Dyno: The installation and price for the package are actually pretty reasonable despite this being a German tuner. The car is not far away from 1000+ crank horsepower. If you were worried about the C8 RS6 or RS7 not being stout platforms based on their stock performance, think again. Hybrid turbo upgraded and tuned examples like this one are absolute beasts!

    @spoolperformance is on a roll with product rollouts. Just the other day their AMG M276 HPFP kit was released and you can add BMW N63, N63TU, S63, and S63TU motors to the list which all share the same basic 4.4 liter twin turbo V8 direct injected architecture. The N63 and S63 kits are very similar: Our FX-150 kit for the S63 includes 2 x FX-150 upgraded high-pressure fuel pumps 1 x Ethanol Content Monitor with mobile apps 1 x Bosch spec 10-micron high flow Fuel Filter Upgraded Fuel lines and all necessary install hardware Our FX-150 kit for the N63 includes 2 x FX-150 upgraded high-pressure fuel pumps 1 x Ethanol Content Monitor with mobile apps 1 x Bosch spec 10-micron high flow Fuel Filter Upgraded Fuel lines and all necessary install hardware Both have dual FX-150 HPFP's (High Pressure Fuel Pumps). What else? Spool 10-micron filter unit Our 10-micron filter unit boasts the best filtration available on the S63 market without any noticeable pressure drop in the low side fuel system. The filter unit helps keep the high-pressure pump and injectors safe by protecting them against debris and is highly recommended. Spool Ethanol Content Monitor The spool ECA kit for the S63 features a digital readout of in-tank ethanol content and fuel temperature. It includes our SPOOL Ethanol content analyzer app on mobile and readouts are delivered via BLE 4.0 low energy technology. BLE4.0 allows you to use your regular Bluetooth devices on your mobile devices while being connected to the SPOOL ECA module. Fuel lines used in the kit are braided steel nylon core fuel lines that are 100% E85 compatible. Are tune changes required? The upgraded pumps do require calibration changes. Spool performance can provide calibration details to your existing tuner and/or help you connect with established tuners who are experienced with these pumps. $3499 S63: http://spoolperformance.us/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=92 N63: http://spoolperformance.us/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=93

    19% is a pretty steep decline but Mercedes-Benz is seeing signs of recovery in China. Still, Daimler plans further cost cutting measure and what that means only they know. One would think racing programs would be the first to see cuts (much like McLaren). So what is going to happen? They are going to lay off 10,000 people. That is just the beginning as they lay off another 10,000 by 2022. Whatever other costs they need to cut they will find them. These are Germans after all. Source

    A budget Audi RS3? Maybe. This is something somewhat exciting from Mazda which is not exactly saying much. Mazda does not have much o an enthusiast oriented lineup so seeing a new turbocharged AWD car with 2.5 liters of displacement stands out. What can we expect? EXTERIOR Black rear lip spoiler (Available on Sedan) Black rear roof spoiler (Available on Hatchback) 18-inch Black alloy wheels Black power side mirrors Black front air dam (Available on Hatchback) AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGY Traffic Jam Assist3 360° View Monitor4 It will be available as a sedan or hatchback with an automatic transmission only. How much money? Mazda does not say. More details to come.

    Unitronics prices are good, but they don't offer any form of custom maps or tune adjustment which I think would really help them be a stronger offering in the market. For example, on the S5 they couldn't (or wouldn't) do a custom tune for CAI/Downpipes/Throttle Body Upgrade. They're very competitive on the platforms they offer hardware on, but I think there's still some room to grow.
