    Many of you are wondering why someone would ditch the S62 5.0 liter V8 under the hood of the E39 M5 for a smaller BMW inline-6 motor. Well, these results make a strong argument for such a swap. This E39 M5 belongs to BimmerBoost member @Omni. You can read all about his decision to do the swap in a past article. Even at lower power levels than the car runs currently it was a beast. @Omni beat up on a tuned Cadillac CTS-V Wagon as well as a tuned F13 M6 Gran Coupe. With the car now making over 800 to the wheels it is safe to say he can take on even more stout competition. He is running a Precision 6266 turbocharger at 35 psi of boost. 100% methanol is injected in a direct port setup. A water and methanol blend is utilized as well before the compressor. Tuning is by @NickG of Technique Tuning and done on the stock DME no less. The result? 813 horsepower and 819 lb-ft of torque at the wheels which works out to comfortably over 900 at the crank. However you feel 800+ horsepower at the wheels is serious power and this may be the world's most powerful E39 at this point. Simply incredible results and props to @Omni for continuing to push the boundaries.

    This is getting ridiculous. We were already blown away by the Gen V Viper making quadruple digit horsepower on the stock motor this early on in its tuning. A tuner by the name of Unleashed Tuning managed to hit 1002 horsepower to the wheels on 93 octane. Calvo Motorsports has taken things quite a bit further on 93 octane pump gas with 1187 rear wheel horsepower and 1175 lb-ft of torque at the wheels. What allows this kind of pump gas power? It is tuned on a Motec M1 standalone ECU. Calvo's tuner believes they could easily get it over 1200 whp on pump as well but they think they are pushing the motor far enough as is. No knock, no detonation, and no issues with almost 1200 whp on 93 octane pump fuel. The scary thing is it can go further but nobody wants to be the first one to find the limit of the Gen V Viper internals. What can you say? The new Viper is badass.

    Congrats to AudiBoost member @spool twice who improved his 11.881 @ 115.93 1/4 mile run in his B8.5 Audi S5 to 11.652 @ 117.81. This is the quickest B8.5 Audi S5 time to date. What makes it impressive is this is still on the stock blower with no weight reduction as well as with Dunlop street tires. Mod list: - GIAC stage II v2 Race - GIAC TCU 4,000 rpm launch control - AFE filter - 034 Throttle Body Boot - Drilled hole in airbox - x-pipe mod - E85/93 octane mix - AWE-Tuning pulley Track density altitude at the time of the run was 567 feet. That means there is probably a more in it. Maybe a mid 11 at roughly 119 miles per hour? Definitely quick but there is not much more left to get out of the OEM blower. It will be interesting to see if he takes it further.

    We know the turbocharged 488 GTB should be much faster than the naturally aspirated 458 Italia it replaces. Especially in the 1/4 mile considering the Ferrari now has turbo torque to get it off the line quickly. EKanooRacing took what they say is a stock 488 GTB to the Bahrain dragstrip and here is the result. On a 1.706 60 foot time they managed a 10.372 @ 137.35 miles per hour. That is a very impressive run but this sort of performance should put the 488 GTB roughly even with the 650S from McLaren. So why did we see a 488 GTB lose from a roll to a McLaren MP4-12C which is less powerful than the 650S? Was that 488 GTB a dud? Was the MP4-12C tuned? Is EKanooRacing using race gas? Is the Bahrain dragstrip accurate? All valid questions. We will need to some runs on NHRA certified US strips to put this result in context.

    A couple nice runs here from a BMS JB4 tuned F10 BMW M5. The car is running a 50/50 blend of meth injection on 93 octane. It also features MSR intakes and R888 tires for traction. The Mustang GT Coyote V8 is blown with a Kenne Bell twin screw at 12 psi on E85. The M5 and Mustang go at it twice. The first run has the Coyote pulling decisively. In the second run the M5 takes the hit and holds off the Mustang GT. They each get a win which is great but it should have been settled with a decisive third race. Maybe we'll see a rematch? The Mustang gets a bonus run with a Paxton supercharged Gen II Dodge Viper at 6 psi of boost. The V10 is also stated to be stroked. The Coyote pulls it impressively so the Viper might want to run more boost next time. A run between the Viper and M5 would be fun to see as well.

    Things have changed a bit regarding rally racing spectators. Why? Well, take a look at the gif posted below and you will understand why. Back in the legendary 80's Group B days as well as other rally classes drivers would have to contend not only with the elements but spectators as well. This speaks for itself.

    A couple races between some local cars. F10 M5 with MSR inlets, JB4 and 50/50 meth. 93 oct and 40 add, on R888. Coyote is a Kenne Bell car with Mammoth return fuel system, e85 and drag radials. Coyote is rumored to be around 700ish HP. https://youtu.be/oGpMF8ixqOA

    This should not be a shocker as Hennessey often takes credit for the work of others. Don't believe it? Hennessey patted himself on the back for his HPE700 Mustang GT supercharger system when it is really Whipple's blower and design. Just like how the Hennessey HPE600 AMG GT S tune is really Eurocharged's tune. Jerry Thorton at Eurocharged did the custom dyno tune. Hennessey will essentially resell the $2499 Eurocharged M178 tune at a premium. Why bother with paying for the Hennessey name when you can go straight to the source? Anyone?

    Congratulations to BenzBoost member @charliekay who is so close to the 9's in his supercharged W204 C63 AMG that he can taste it. He upgraded to the Weistec 3.0 liter Stage III twin screw blower and ran 10.22 @ 137.09 which was a considerable improvement from the 10.83 @ 129.22 he managed on the Stage II 2.3 liter blower. Now with different wheels and tires he shaved it down to 10.173 @ 139.18 on a 1.549 60 foot. Obviously a better launch than the previous 1.606 60 foot so the new tire setup is helping. He is just a hair away from the 9's but as @charliekay is an Australian member keep in mind the weather is not doing him any favors right now. In the winter we might see that elusive 9 second pass which is certainly impressive for a stock internal supercharged M156.

    This is some hardware you do not see very often on the drag strip. These cars are more at home on the roadcourse but they certainly put up a good showing in a straightline as well. The hybrid Porsche 918 Spyder is well known with its naturally aspirated 608 horsepower 4.6 liter V8 that revs to 9150 rpm augmented by two electric motors for a total system output of 887 horsepower. Unlike the other two modern hybrid supercars the 918 Spyder sends power to all four wheels. That means the electric torque helps it get off the line quickly and it puts the power down effectively. How quickly does it move? Well, it makes a McLaren 650S look like it is standing still. The 650S is no slouch by the way capable of running low 10's at high 130's in the 1/4 mile thanks to its low curb weight and efficient rear wheel drive layout powered by a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8. The 918 Spyder gets the better launch with a 1.64 60 foot to the 650S Spyder's 1.88. The end result is the 918 running 9.835 @ 144.95 to the Mclaren's 10.912 @ 133.46. The video claims the best time for the McLaren was a 10.3 @ 137.5 from earlier in the day but no proof is posted. It certainly is believable and well within reason. It also means the Ferrari 488 GTB should be a good match for it. Great runs and a well done video with multiple camera angles.
