    I'm not helping anyone. I'm still pissed James Jones was snatched up.

    I have to disagree here. My car went significantly faster with a box tune compared to a custom tune (for our 98 pump fuel, I believe that's 93 in usa). How ever I do believe if I was to use race gas I would see better gains with a custom tune then a box tune.

    I cant play fantasy football because I cant root for other guys not wearing a horseshoe on their helmet. What other running backs are just sitting out there right now? I know Bradshaws role on the team and its not an every down back...he wouldnt last. Getting him hurt does not help team toward the ultimate goal. If Richardson is out Herron will get his 15+ touches unless the Colts are behind all game and are forced to pass. I think Boom has potential...but of course, that could be the homer in me. ;)

    Yeah but the point is the other guy is not worth grabbing. I wish you were in the league :P

    This is a similar question to what BimmerBoost raised last year regarding an M2 model. A ton of speculation took place from the various culprits on the 2015 F87 M2 this year and one site even claimed to definitively know the M2 would have a more aggressively tuned N55 from the M235i. Our position was (and remains) that nobody knows what the hell they are talking about and that they are simply guessing to get attention. CAR is claiming to definitively know what the specifications for the M2 are and here is their take. CAR states the F87 M2 will arrive in 2015 and offer 369 horsepower and and 384 lb-ft of torque featuring a detuned S55 inline-6 borrowed from the F80/F82 M3 and M4. Ok, fine, that certainly is a possibility. CAR does not state how the engine will be detuned, who at BMW stated this is the engine if anyone even did, or any real solid info on the motor. Is it just a software detune? Is BMW mating the motor to a DCT in the 2-Series finally? Will the motor get a different turbocharger or any physical hardware differences? You would think someone who supposedly has access to an inside source at BMW would ask these questions. If the M2 gets a detuned S55 and it is only detuned through software we can declare right now the M2 is the greatest tuning value in the history of the BMW lineup considering how underrated the S55 engine is and what it gains from basic tuning. If it is detuned through hardware means to protect the M3/M4 this is not a big deal anyway as on paper the M3/M4 and the M2 will have the same potential. If it features an N55 like the M235i as some reported then it does not have a real motor and BMW is really getting out of control with their cost cutting and their watering down of the M brand. All CAR has done is create a bunch of hype. That sells magazines. Good for them but they aren't getting our money. Source

    Bradshaw is the fantasy back you want on the Colts.

    This is some impressive tuning right here from BrenTuning. The 997.1 GT3 is in a very high state of tune the way it sits right off the showroom floor. The 3.6 liter flat-6 motor is rated at 415 horsepower and really a bit underrated from the factory. It is making quite a bit over 100 horsepower per liter. Squeezing out more power is not easy and tuners need to be cautious. Looking at the baseline with a Cargraphic rear section exhaust the car is already making over 100 wheel horsepower per liter on a Mustang dyno. Porsche does not hold back much with the GT3. Tune only on the same 93 octane pump gas BrenTuning takes output from 364 wheel horsepower to 390 wheel horsepower with significant torque gains through the curve. 26 wheel horsepower with just a tune only on a GT3 is a big time gain. With race gas BrenTuning raises output to 400 on the dot at the wheels. A total gain of 34 wheel horsepower through just tuning. Very impressive work:

    I'm a huge Bradshaw fan (as a player, not fantasy). That's what I think :)

    Not really...they will not overload Bradshaw, we need him for the Super Bowl. :). Pittsburg run defense is ranked in the lower half of the league, Reggie will be out and Indy love RB and TE in goal to go situations. Boom, Boom, Boom! Also, Im not saying dump your top guy for him...he might be good for someone in need though.

    If you are low on running backs and need a stop gap for the week...you might want to look at Boom Herron for the COLTS. T-Rich might not play so I could easily see Boom getting his workload. They will not over utilize Bradshaw in Richardson's absence. I am intersested to see what he can do...looked great in preseason and last week in garbage time against Cincy. What do you guys think?

    Fun fact....Colts defense has only given up 4 out of 41 3rd down conversion attempts in the last 4 games.

    Dinan launched a new BMW club racing engine based on the S65 V8 out of the E9X M3 models. Dinan increases the bore and stroke to increase displacement from 4.0 liters to 4.6 liters. Just as with Dinan's standard S65 stroker motor the bore and stroke goes to 94mm x 83mm. Now might be a good time to bring up an old BimmerBoost S65 V8 stroker comparison article from 2010. This was the statement BimmerBoost made about the potential of the S65 stroker motors: 'By shifting the power band to the left the torque curve falls off faster not allowing the stroker to show full potential with the stock cam profile that was not designed for it. Neither Dinan or RDsport address the cams.' Well come 2014 Dinan does address the cams and that explains why the club racing S65 engine makes an additional 80 horsepower over the standard stroker. Dinan is essentially giving the motor a dry sump, adding Schrick cams, and a more aggressive tune. Now, $39,999.00 is a lot of money for a stroked S65 with a dry sump oiling system one can get from VAC and Schrick cams. Especially considering the engine requires a standalone engine control system that is not included in the price. That means this engine gets up close to $50k when all is said and done. Now, there is no point to have another discussion on Dinan pricing as Dinan is well aware of his own pricing. BimmerBoost could build this motor for almost half the price though and have it tuned on the stock DME meaning you could use it in a street car if you wanted to without the need for a standalone ECU. What is really nice to see is more aggressive cams paired with the stroker motor. So Dinan's 580 horsepower quoted output is about right considering an RD Sport stroker without the aftermarket cams hits 441 wheel horsepower (Dinan in customary fashion does not provide a dynograph at the wheels): One could expect in the ~500 whp range depending on the tune and fuel quality in naturally aspirated form from a stroked S65 V8 paired with some aggressive cams. That certainly would be a lot of fun on the racetrack which is obviously what this motor is built for. Dinan: For those seeking the ultimate high performance driving experience, Dinan has once again redefined M3 performance with a bored and stroked 4.6 liter version of BMW's V-8 engine complete with a dry sump lubrication system and solid lifter camshafts. The engine produces 580 horsepower at 8200 RPM along with increased torque of 390 lb-ft at 6900 RPM. The engine is supplied as an assembled long-block, fully prepared.. Due to the engine’s high state of tune, a Bosch or Motec stand-alone engine management system is required to run this breed of S65 engine. Dinan's 35 years of BMW tuning and racing experience ensure that the engines will perform for lasting trouble free driving excitement. Much of the technology that has made Dinan's Grand-Am Daytona Prototype engines both competitive and reliable has carried over to the 4.6 Liter V-8 engine program for street and amateur racing use, ensuring that the engines produce great power along with race-proven durability Features and Specification of the Dinan® S65 4.6L Club Racing Engine: + 4.6L long block (bore = 94mm; stroke = 83mm; compression ratio = 12:1) + Peak Power: 580 HP @ 8200 RPM and 390 ft-lbs @ 6900 RPM + High lift camshafts with solid lifters + Dry Sump lubrication system + Dinan proprietary billet crankshaft + Dinan proprietary lightweight forged pistons + Dinan proprietary light-weight connecting rods + Balanced, blueprinted and dynoed + Dinan serial numbered block + NO DINAN WARRANTY + RACING ONLY PART + NOT EMISSIONS LEGAL Core Program: Engines are a part of the CORE program we utilize at Dinan so you will be charged an additional fee on top of MSRP initially. This fee will then be refunded to you once your qualifying engine core has been received at Dinan. This ensures we have a continuous stream of product for rebuilding purposes and the lowest possible price to the consumer.
