" I love how worldcarfans is way behind. MBUSA recently posted the video that AMG did a while ago along with all the specs. They also are saying it will be the same M178? Well, I don't know about that. "

" Mercedes-AMG detail their new V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine

Attachment 39291
Develops up to 510 PS

Mercedes-Benz and AMG have released extensive details about the newly developed V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine.
Set to make its first appearance in the long-awaited AMG GT, the V8 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine codenamed M178 meets Euro 6 emissions standard and has a dry weight of 209 kg (461 lbs). With a displacement of 3982cc, in the AMG GT-S it will generate 510 PS (375 kW) at 6,250 rpm and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) between 1,750 and 4,750 rpm, providing 128 PS and 163.2 Nm per liter.
It benefits from an eco start/stop function to save fuel and also has a separate cooling-air flow for the exhaust gas turbochargers during high thermal load. AMG’s engineers have installed active engine mounts for improved lateral dynamics while the two-mass flywheel with centrifugal pendulum prevents torsional vibration on the drive line to smoothen the ride.
The turbochargers have a maximum charge pressure of 1.2 bar pressure and a maximum speed of 186,000 rpm. The V8 motor comes with an aluminum crankcase created using sand casting technology and also adopts a closed deck design and NANOSLIDE technology for the cylinder bore surfaces, making them twice as hard compared to regular cast-iron linings. Moreover, the engine comes with forged aluminum pistons with low-friction piston rings to further reduce oil and fuel consumption.
If we were to believe recent reports, the AMG-GT will be unveiled online on September 9, followed in early October by a public debut in Paris. Only the more powerful GT-S variant will be revealed, while the standard AMG GT is set to come out in the following months with 462 PS (340 kW). The same M178 engine will also find its way inside the C63 AMG set to be introduced early next year.

Of course the rider matters but without knowing his weight I can only go by the machines. "

luckystrike replied to the thread Spark Plug Installation How-To.
" My inch pound torque wrench doesn't go to 17 ft pound and I reduced the torque and I didn't strip out my spark plugs. All is well and I'll still use anti seize. It's not that big of a deal but yes anti seize reduces friction I just didn't cover it in my write up.

Also if you read what I wrote I only blew out the spark plug tubes when the spark plugs were in the cylinder head. Oh Lol.. My pics are out of order crap I'll fix it tonight. Yes don't blow spark plug holes when the spark plugs are out only before you remove the plugs. Good catch.

Have a good day. "

" Liter plus bikes are pretty damn fast, we know that. Power to weight tends to favor bikes at least stock. This bike is not stock however and is turbocharged putting out 425 horsepower at the wheels on C16. It is basically similar to riding a cruise missile. UGR (Underground Racing) makes some spectacularly fast cars with some of their twin turbo V10 Gallardo's and R8's rumored to be putting out well over the 2000 horsepower mark depending on who you ask.


This Gallardo is stated to have '1750' horsepower. Based on a quick power to weight calculation it has around 1.94 pounds per horse. The Hayabusa based on a 425 wheel horsepower number and a ~600 pound weight with fluids and the turbo has 1.41 pounds per horse. The aerodynamics of course favor the Gallardo.

So what happens? The Gallardo wins. Why? Well aerodynamics from a roll as stated and probably because it has more power than is being let on. Taking down a Hayabusa on the highway in a car is an incredible feat. A turbo Hayabusa? Well, that requires something truly spectacular. That is exactly what this UGR built Gallardo is.

Sticky replied to the thread Ferrari plotting entry-level model with 500 bhp twin-turbo V6 2.9-liter engine - report.
" Whether we like it or not the turbocharged modern era of Ferrari is here. It began with the California T getting a shared direct injection 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 design with Maserati. That same motor will be tweaked and find its way under the hood of the Ferrari 458. The turbo engines will not stop there as apparently a new 2.9 liter turbo V6 is in the pipeline.


This information comes from Automobile who has absolutely no backing for their story. No quoted source, no official specifications, nothing. They seem to be guessing as they often do. Let's assume they are right for the moment and a new 'entry level' Ferrari is on the way.

Ferrari does not want to dilute their brand image so a cheap car is out of the question. By cheap that means under $200k. Secondly, Ferrari's CEO is opposed to an entry level car. Where Automobile is pulling this information from is anyone's guess.

This new car is supposed to be based on a compacted 458 architecture. The 2.9 liter twin turbocharged V6 would have output somewhere over 500 horsepower. This is all just a bunch of guessing though and Automobile admits as much: "

I haven't seen anyone else try this so getting some info out there if it is a good mod will get you more business!
All data thus far shows large benefits on the N54 and N55 heads. They are hardly BMW's best cylinder head work. "
