    2016 is the year N54 automatic transmission upgrades become reality. There have been various posts detailing options and Propulsive Dynamics showed technical details on their upgrades and the capacity increases possible on the ZF 6HP21 automatic that many of you with E9X 335's and E82 135's own. The automatic transmission will no longer be left out of the fun when running big boost on the N54 motor. For those who would like to get in on the upgrade early there are three beta tester spots available. If you are interested consider the following information: 1. Propulsive Dynamics strongly advises that the end user also either rebuilds or replaces the valve-body and torque converter. This would preferably be done through European Transmissions located in Atlanta, GA. 2. Propulsive Dynamics strongly advises that the end user utilize an ATF cooler to aide in heat management of the system. 3. The High Performance Kit includes Upgraded Clutch Kit with increased plate counts in key clutches, Upgraded Bushing Kit with proprietary bi-metallic alloy, and a ZF 6HP19/21 Universal Overhaul Kit. 4. Pricing for the Beta Kit is $1899 plus shipping. If you are interested please contact @Jason@PropulsiveDynamics on the forum or through e-mail at If you have any questions feel free to ask them below.

    This certainly is going to be an interesting option considering how it is priced and the stated capability. The Stage 3 turbo kit from MM Performance Engineering retails for $3000 and is capable of 700 wheel horsepower with the proper supporting modifications. At the heart is a TD04HL-19T upgrade. The 19T compressor wheel is a billet piece with 11 blades and extended tips. To see 700+ wheel you will need fueling upgrades and to push these turbos past 30 psi of boost. BimmerBoost member @Sirdaft1 is beta testing these turbochargers but he is not going for peak horsepower on the dyno but a daily useable 500 rear wheel horsepower on 93 octane. We will see how this option pans out. MMP has the best turbo bang for your buck for your N54, TD04HL-19T with true 19T native compressor housing. These turbos are capable of 700whp+ on the N54 and at just $3000 its a bargain and they bolt right up to your N54. The 19T compressor wheel is a forged billet wheel with extended tip technology from BorgWarner and with 11 blades made in the GTX style. The Turbo consist of a TD04 bearing housing modified to connect to stock oil lines, coolant lines and stock turbine housing. The turbine housing has been modified to accept the TD04HL turbine and flange up to the TD04 bearing housing. The kit requires upgraded inlet pipe system and also intercooler charge pipe system optimized for the high flowing native 19T compressor housing which is over twice the size/flow of stock compressor housing. This will make sure the turbos are flowing to their maximum potential along with the upgraded plumbing for the turbo.

    Here are the flow test results for the MMP ported N54 head. Stock intake and exhaust valve lift is about .400 in Testing was done on a single intake and single exhaust valve using a flow bench by a third party. Not sure but I think these are the first flow test results I have seen published for the N54, if not please link to other results as I would be curious to compare. Intake gets a large improvement at stock lift at about 30% flow increase Exhaust gets a nominal improvement at stock lift at about 10% flow increase The most important one is the intake. Some other interesting info from the additional test point at a lift of .500, looks like we could benefit from a intake cam with a more aggressive lift but not really from an exhaust cam. Also for the cost of a new intake cam, not sure if the 5% increase in flow is worth it. Going with .5mm larger Ferrea valves on intake and exhaust will help get more flow, if I had to guess maybe another 5% more as flow area only increase by 3% or so so I wouldn't expect major gains from that. The major gains seems to be from the porting work definitely. Very happy with the results in creased flow on the intake and exhaust port. You can see in the before and after pics below of the porting that the exhaust port is already semi ported and the intake port has a ledge and some hard corners which is why the intake benefits the most from the porting in the valve bowl primarily plus its a 31.5mm intake valve vs a 28mm valve on the exhaust so porting results are more pronounced on the intake. Here is more info on the ported heads and pics, its a repost from my ARP/built engine preview thread, but posted here for info purpose of this thread. MMP PORTED AND REBUILT N54 HEAD Before Pics of valve bowls After pics of valve bowls This port and polish is done by hand and takes a long time. Valve job includes new exhaust and intake valve guide seal, cleaning, checking for tolerances and rebuild of valves and springs into head. Also includes decking flat the head. $1500 Ferrea valve train can also be done. I think this is overkill as the stock valves and springs are very good especially at the max RPMs N54s currently run at, but if you want it we can do it for you. +$2000 for full Ferrea valve train. if interested in any of this stuff, send me an email at and let me know how I can help you in your build. Don't PM me here as I don't check them often.

    *RESOLVED* DO NOT TAKE YOUR CAR TO AJE HOTI (EMP TUNING) if you value your money or vehicle. He is a scam artist and a very smooth talker. EMP Tuning is not licensed or insured and the work is done in his driveway. If something happens to your vehicle or you pay for work and he does not complete it he will block you on social media and you will take a loss as I did. I paid Aje $600 for a devils own direct port methanol injection kit $300 for installation, $150 for a thermostat installation he was not able to complete due to lack of tools. He also had a brand new forge diverter valve of mine that cost $210 he was going to sell for me due to the fact he had me purchase a part that did not work with my turbo. Our friendship diminished and I asked for my belongings and money he owes me so we can go our separate ways. Aje told me he did not owe me anything and blocked my phone number and on social media. I received only the meth kit and my vag-com i had lent him via a 3rd party and it was opened, with bags torn open inside and missing over 100 dollars of parts to make it port injection. He has made no attempt to pay me the money I had given him for work in good faith and claims everything was complete in the methanol kit. This is a person i have went above and beyond for. I have given free mounting and balancing, tires at cost, free alignment, i even let him use my $899 professional vag-com kit for 10 months when he wanted to start tuning cars and i never even asked for a dime. If he would do this to me for all i've done to him imagine what he could do to you. I had recently seen a post on his EMP TUNING facebook page about a port injection meth kit he installed on a similar engine. Now i know why my meth kit was incomplete and why he would not meet me in person to give it to me. He took my parts and sold them to another person. I waited a couple weeks and sent him a text via texting app to see when he could start paying me back and did not even receive a reply. Please take your vehicle to a licensed, insured and trusted shop not an unlicensed backyard mechanic that does mediocre work at best. I would hate to see anyone in the situation i am in.

    Very quick numbers here from a 2017 Porsche 911 Carrera with the PDK transmission as tested by Car and Driver. Last month MotorTrend posted test figures for a seven-speed manual transmission 2017 911 Carrera and the PDK is substantially quicker. How much quicker you ask? The PDK hits 60 in 3.4 seconds versus 3.9 for the manual. The 1/4 mile for the PDK is 11.9 @ 118 whereas the manual does 12.3 @ 114.7. Yep, we called it: Indeed this is very impressive. As is the 3302 pound curb weight with the PDK dual clutch transmission. It should be relatively easy to keep a PDK Carrera in the 32XX pound range with some stripper options. Ok, we know it is quick and fast for the rated power so how about the handling? 1.06g on the skidpad is superb. What is there not to like about this car? Maybe the price. $110,970 as tested is not cheap and it starts at $90k to begin with. The Carrera certainly is more expensive than ever but it is also a better performer than ever. One does not even need to opt for the Carrera S as the performance gap between the two can be mended (or exceeded) with aftermarket software alone. The 2017 Carrera is just a hell of a car. Specifications VEHICLE TYPE:rear-engine, rear-wheel drive, 2+2-passenger, 2-door coupe PRICE AS TESTED:$110,970 (base price: $90,450) 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: 71.2 in Height:51.3 in Cargo volume: 5 cu ft Curb weight: 3303 lb C/D TEST RESULTS: Zero to 60 mph: 3.4 sec Zero to 100 mph: 8.5 sec Zero to 130 mph: 14.8 sec Rolling start, 5-60 mph: 4.3 sec Top gear, 30-50 mph: 2.6 sec Top gear, 50-70 mph: 2.8 sec Standing ¼-mile: 11.9 sec @ 118 mph Top speed (mfr's claim): 183 mph Braking, 70-0 mph: 135 ft Roadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 1.06 g FUEL ECONOMY: EPA city/highway driving: 22/30 mpg C/D observed: 21 mpg

    This is an interesting piece of news and actually quite important. Why is that you ask? Well, some of you may remember that CARB stuck it to BMS (Burger Tuning) back in 2014. It seems the relationship is much better now as CARB (California Air Resource Board) approved the BMS DCI for the N54. This is probably just the beginning of various products for various platforms from BMS getting CARB approval. One, it shows the mass BMS reached in getting CARB's attention and secondly that they have the resources to go through the proper channels to get CARB approval which is not an easy thing to do. For California residents having that CARB approval is a big deal if some highway patrol officer decides to harass you or you happen to run into one of their mobile emissions testing stations that will try to verify if your intake is legal. Let's hope more products get CARB approval so they don't ruin the fun for all of us. A little good news, around 18 months in the making. We finally received formal CARB approval for our N54 dual cone intake system! This adds to our N55 Stage1 tuner and N18 JB+ that are also 50 state legal. With more products in the process. CARB Approved Under Executive Order (EO) No. D-744-2 for all 2007-2012 BMW Models Equipped with the N54 3.0L twin-turbocharged 6-cylinder engine.

    Some interesting runs here from BenzBoost member @fairbird and his tuned W212 E63 AMG S 4Matic. He states he is on pump gas but considering how easily the cars are beaten here it certainly makes you wonder. Not to mention 730+ all wheel horsepower on pump would mean upgraded turbochargers. Hopefully he will provide the mod list but he makes easy work of the competition. 1. Murcielago - This wasn't even a race. One would think based on the performance this is not an LP640 variant. 2. Bolt on 335i - Not even a race either. The BMW gets crushed. 3. Pontiac G8 - Another joke of a run. 4. LS3 swapped 996 on nitrous - The guy is running with his top down? Why? He is also crushed. 5. GT500 Mustang - Another easy race. 6. GTR with FBO on E85 - This makes you question if the GTR is truly on E85 with FBO. Stock turbo GTR's have broken into the 9's and gone over 140. A full bolt on GTR on E85 should win this race but at least this is the closest run so far. Who knows what the mod list truly is on this GTR. 7. 750 whp N54 - Finally a better and higher quality camera angle. The E63 seems to get a huge jump and the N54's turbo lag doesn't help but the video cuts off just as the 335i is clawing back. Overall, this E63 performs very well but it does not run anything of substance other than the GTR and the 750 whp 335i. Considering the 335i run is cut off it makes it feel like this video is designed to inflate the perception of the E63's performance capability. Definitely fast but why go to an event just to beat up on cars that are easy to beat? Edit: Another video of the 335i run with the BMW out in front is also cut off. That video is below. Better Lambo vid, looks to be LP640: Better GTR video: Better single turbo 335i video (335 wins in this one and it's cut off):

    Nice runs here featuring a stock Porsche 991.1 Turbo S and an E90 335i N54 with upgraded turbochargers courtesy of the Pure Turbos Stage 2 package. As a reminder, the Porsche has a PDK (dual clutch) transmission and makes 550 horsepower. It also weighs just over 3500 pounds. This 335i is said to weigh in the 33XX range meaning some weight loss measures are employed. To give you an idea of what the 991.1 Turbo S can do it runs high 10's in the upper 120's in the 1/4 mile. Now, in the first run the 335i gives the 911 Turbo a beatdown but it looks like the driver was sleeping or in the wrong gear. The second run is much better and basically door to door with the Turbo edging slightly. Good runs. Automatic 335i - Pure Stage 2 turbos, FBO Inlets+outlet, JB4 19psi (map7) and race gas. (3340lbs)

    This is still early but BMS (Burger Tuning) is developing a JB4 tune for the S63 engine under the hood of the E70 X5M and E71 X6M models. As you likely know, the current X5M and X6M utilize a revised S63TU motor. With prices for the previous generation models dropping hard the X5M and X6M make for a great tuning value. The only problem until now has been that BMS did not offer a JB4 tune for the vehicles. Well, development is under way and fortunately BimmerBoost is privy to some early results. Let's look at the difference between a stock X5M and one with a Stage 1 beta tune on pump gas. Stock: Running an early version of JB4 Map1 which is an additive style map. Around 4psi over stock on average: These are VBOX numbers of course but what you should take away is that the JB4 tune is making a big difference. Really, it's providing big torque gains down low. That is why you see the 0-60 and 0-100 times drop by so much whereas the trap speed increase in the 1/4 mile is minimal while the elapsed time difference is large. This is to be expected in the turbo era where BMW tuning provides major torque gains down low. This is all still very early but also very promising. Expect more details to come with the official release.

    Lots going on at VPG lately. We have the GC giveaway that will be wrapping up soon, some awesome behind the scenes testing going on, and today I'm very excited to do an intro post about our next turbo release, the GC lites. The Scoop: The GC lites are a smaller version of the standard GC Turbos. Designed as a step between Stage 1's and our normal GC's, they're targeted at people looking in the vicinity of 600 whp, but are capable of 650 whp on a max effort tune. They spool exceptionally fast -nearly 500 rpm faster than normal GC's, which already out spool anything comparable. Some specs below: -TD04L-16T units -Fully Cast -100% Modular (swap to GC's or soon to be coming GC+'s if you want more power by popping off a V-band and remove/reinstall oil/coolant lines) -Spool similar to stock turbos! -650 whp capable -Estimated ~500 whp capable on 93 octane -Retail price will be $2999 (no core charge) Hardware Pictures: Initial Results: We first put them on the built-motor 6MT car but some engine issues that presented as a boost leak in the top of the RPM band precluded us from completing testing. Some of you may have seen Tony post the Instagram shots of spool and torque (this is targeting 30 psi). It's still great info since the 6MT shows torque better as compared to the auto. 6MT torque profile 300 wtq by 1900 rpm 400 wtq by 2400 rpm 500 wtq by 2800 rpm 600 wtq by 3200 rpm 700 wtq by 4000 rpm We ended up getting 623 whp and 706 wtq on ~30 psi tapering to ~24. We ended up pulling the turbos off and putting them on the blue car (stock motor, auto, FBO, Docrace PI intake manifold) and got the results posted below. Final Results: We ended up getting 645 whp and 636 wtq on ~30 psi tapering to ~28. Timing was 12 degrees. Fuel was E85. You all know the specs of the blue car (FBO obviously, with the doc race PI intake manifold). This is leaning on them pretty hard, but it shows a max-effort tune capability. Below I have some pertinent comparisons you all may find interesting. GC Lites vs. GC's on a max-effort tune: Log snap shot of that tune: Here is a comparison of the GC's to the GC lites on the 6AT car with the same tune; everything the same except swapped turbos. No tune change. Here is a comparison of the GC lites to VTT Stage 2's. This chart compares the GC lites to the best performing Stage 2+'s; the Stage 2+ EK's. BQ Tuning just hit 503 whp on his Z4 on stock turbos and was kind enough to send me his dyno chart for comparison purposes (thank you Dimitri!). We started the dyno earlier than Dimitri did but this is a great comparsion showing just how awesome the spool is on the GC lites. Finally, here is a chart comparing spool on the GC lites to a competitor. To be sure they make more power up top but look at the spool difference. It's not even on the same planet. Want to keep talking about spool? Sounds good to us. Check these street logs out: GC Lites vs. GC's: Which should you pick up? Basically the lites will comfortably do 600+ whp, but you're running them max effort to hit 650 whp. If you really want something closer to 650, just get the GC's. If you want ridiculous spool and in the vicinity of 600 is enough, get the GC lites, save yourself some cash and grin like an idiot when you realize how fast these spool and how much fun a quick spooling vehicle is. Additional Info: Price is $2999 with an option to add an inlet or charge pipe for $100 ea ($200 gets you both, also remember these need the charge pipe; OEM charge pipe won't work). Expected shipping of the first batch of lites is within 4 weeks. If interested, send an email to or More VPG Stuff: -By early 4th quarter, we'll be offering GC+'s, which are intended to be 800 whp capable version of the GC's. These will be compatible with the manifolds of all other GC family; we'll offer a trade-in price, simply unbolt the v-band and lines, swap them out and reconnect. Tony swapped normal GC's to GC lites in 3 hours on the shop car (5-6 hours for someone with less experience). -Ball bearing options for all GC versions are currently under development. Assuming successful test completion, that will be an option early 4th quarter. A few notes about the ball bearing variants; BB does NOT increase power, nor does it effect spool much at all; they add longevity and transient response. We'll be updating our findings as we continue to innovate.

    We know GAD Motors builds some incredible AMG's and their W204 C63 M157 5.5 liter twin turbo V8 swap in particular is very impressive. Just watch as one of their M157 swapped W204 C63 AMG Black Series models eats a Porsche 991 Turbo S alive from a roll. This package also runs 9's in the 1/4 mile at 142 miles per hour. Yes, it's fast and it continues to evolve as they add more power to the M157 V8. In the video below you can get a sense of just how quick the car is as it hits 176.2 miles per hour in the standing 1/2 mile. There is also a clip of the car acceleration from 0-180 miles per hour. Suffice it to say, it gets there quickly. Just awesome work retrofitting all wheel drive on the W204 C63 chassis and swapping in the M157 twin turbo V8 engine.

    Over 600 wheel horsepower on pump? Without port fuel injection? Without methanol? Now that sounds pretty nice, doesn't it? That is exactly what you have here with this F80 M3 that is flash tuned by Eurocharged Canada. Yes, it is also running a BMS JB4 tune in conjunction with the flash. On straight 93 octane pump gas without any supplemental fuel or port injection the F80 M3 makes 611 to the tires with 645 lb-ft of torque. That is every day power you can enjoy.

    Nice numbers for a stock internal 370Z running low boost. We do not know what turbochargers or what turbo kit this 370Z is running but what we do know is the 393 rear wheel horsepower is a major improvement over the factory ~280 rear wheel horsepower. As the 370Z is 11.0:1 compression from the factory and naturally aspirated if one wants to build it for boost they can obviously achieve more power than this. BoostAddict will try and get more details but certainly respectable numbers:

    You should know who PPF Sweden is. They build some of the baddest BMW's on the planet. Why is it the Swedes who push boosted BMW's further than anyone else? Who knows, but their work is absolutely incredible especially in the BMW I6 iron block arena. Just look a this turbocharged E46 M3 for proof. The turbocharger is a Precision 8285R at 2.65 BAR or in other words 38 psi. The result is an insane 1254 horsepower and 892 lb-ft of torque as measured on a Dynocom: What do you even say to this? The guys at PPF are simply some of the best. You can count the BMW tuners in the US that can rival them on one hand. You don't even need to use all your fingers. <iframe src="" width="560" height="315" style="border:none;overflow:hidden" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" allowFullScreen="true"></iframe>

    Some of you know of the rider here who goes by the name 'Ghostrider' in videos. For those who do not know him do a search on Youtube and videos will pop up showing him hitting insane speeds on the public streets, barely missing cars, and running from the police. This is dangerous and some people will obviously feel he should be locked up. Others might respect the balls (and skill) it takes to pop wheelies at over 160 miles per hour. Some might feel this is just an accident waiting to happen. However you feel it certainly is hard to resist watching this. Some of his classic rides for those unfamiliar:

    Well, this is about the coolest Volkswagen Golf engine swap you are ever going to see. The C6 generation Audi RS6 made headlines because people at Audi lost their minds and decided to give it a twin turbo 5.0 liter V10. Also because Audi did not sell the car in the USA proving once and for all Audi hates American enthusiasts. Now imagine if you stuffed that 5.0 liter twin turbo V10 into something a bit lighter than an RS6. Say a MKIV Volkswagen Golf? Then you tuned it? What would that acceleration look like? Something like this insane sprint to just under 320 kph or 200 miles per hour. Hopefully more information on this car will come because as of now we do not know who it belongs to or how they made this engine fit. What we do know is that it is epic. Edit: It didn't take long to figure out this car was built by GOGI racing in Albania. Oh, and they even threw nitrous on top:

    Now this is the kind of stuff that gets the people of BimmerBoost going! A supercharged BMW E63 M6? That's badass in of itself. But a 5.7 liter stroked S85 V10 with 16 psi of boost on top? Well, EZ-Performance Germany has our attention. Here's what they have to say about the build: Yes, they posted a dyno: Next up is 1200+ horsepower on E85 and breaking into the 9's. Speaking from some personal experience, pushing a stroked S85 with big boost will create some issues. It will be interesting to see how they solve them. Oh, and they are already well into the 10's in the 1/4 mile and over 136 miles per hour: Great work and BimmerBoost looks forward to what they do next. It's great to see the S85 V10 getting the aftermarket push it deserves. Edit: This build is a joint venture between EZ-performance + Starke-Performance

    A few videos from my recent trip to Mexico. Stock ZR1 vs my 07 E90 335i with original RB turbos pushing 25psi. FBO, inlets, and E40 with 100 octane. Mind the horrible quality, I need a GoPro or someone to at least hold the camera while I drive lol. Him and I raced at least 10 times and were almost a dead heat every time.

    EPD Motorsports is new to the BoostAddict network but they recently showed some awesome results with their turbo upgrade on the Mercedes-AMG M133 engine platform. They also have turbocharger upgrades for other platforms including the BMW N54 motor. So what can we tell you about this turbo upgrade? Not much. EPD Motorsports has not told BimmerBoost much about it. We are waiting for pricing information and the full specs as well as a dyno of course. For now all we know this is yet another N54 option in a market becoming crowded which is only a good thing for consumers. If the pricing is competitive and it produces over 500 wheel horsepower at 18+ psi it will certainly have its place.

    Alpine started a thread For Sale: N54 and Xi parts in Buy/Sell - Parts
    Local guys are trying to buy this stuff for next to nothing so I figure I'll give it a shot here. - N54 Ar Design Xi Catless DP's - $400 obo, they have maybe 20,000 miles on them if that and are still in fantastic shape. - N54 Stock DP's - $200 obo, honestly no idea what these should go for but they're also in great shape. No dings or dents etc. - Stock N54 turbos - $150 for the set obo, inspected upon removal by my shop. Good condition despite less than 70k miles on them (never ran more than Cobb OTS E30 race map software with them for just under 30k miles). Wastegate actuators will most likely need to be replaced as they do rattle but still hold boost just fine. No smoking, no bs with these. - BMS DCI's - Free to the first person that requests them with any of the other parts. Good condition, just need to be cleaned and recharged. - Howerton Engineering Aquamist HS-4 NEVER INSTALLED kit with 3 nozzles spec'd for N54 use + Howerton Engineering twin tank with cooling fan - $750 shipped for everything. The tank I picked up from a friend cleaning out his garage for $100. It works perfectly, just has visible paint scratches and scrapes on the outside from install and removal on his car. This kit still sells for over $800 + shipping without the tank. I'm going a different route than I originally planned so this is just taking up space in my garage now. Thanks for looking, any questions or photos, just ask.

    We all get caught up in peak figures which is easy to understand as we want to see the most horsepower possible. Well, not everyone wants to pull out a framed race gas dynograph from their trunk every time they discuss how much power their car is making. Some people just want everyday pump gas power. If you want big power even on piss poor California 91 octane pump fuel look into Pure Turbos Stage 2 S63TU upgrade. They made 707 wheel horsepower and 792 lb-ft of torque at the wheels on Cali pump gas: That is a lot of power and torque and these are not glory pulsl but exactly what it puts out in street trim. The mod list isn't crazy either: -BMS JB4 w/ BCM -PURE Stage 2 Turbos -TTFS intake system -Evolution Raceworks DP's -BMS CP's -Dodson DCT clutches No meth, no port fuel injection, and no problems

    If you track your car or launch hard on the dragstrip with big power you put tremendous stress on the driveline including the driveshaft. The factory BMW E9X M3 S65 V8 driveshaft is not made out of carbon fiber and if it gives it can certainly be a dangerous situation. Driveshafts giving way on the strip is not a new topic but they can come up through the cabin especially if a driveshaft loop is not installed. Well, with the MFactory carbon fiber driveshaft not only do you get a safety benefit but you get a much stronger piece than the factory driveshaft. Here is the description from MFactory: This is a dry carbon fiber piece with 5500 newton meters of capability. That means 4056 lb-ft or in other words whatever any E9X M3 in the world can throw at it. will putting it to the test. They are currently looking for testers which get a discount from $1499.95 retail which is a very reasonable price for what you get. Just to share personal experience, this driveshaft was ordered for the BimmerBoost project E92 M3 DCT and somehow arrived in two days. The insanely quick shipping speed was mind blowing. Here are photos of the unboxing of the driveshaft: It certainly looks and feels like a stout piece and certainly is well packaged. The real test of course will be on a car and MFactory is still looking for testers. If you want to get in at tester pricing, contact @MFactory on the forum.
