Matt has nothing to do with Powerchip / Wayne Besanko. He left that a long time ago. Everyone did. "

He's worth every penny, to be clear.
Woot-woot. Former KSU standout. Love to see him doing well (and getting paid for it).

No question. The guy makes some incredible catches. He has those Chris Carter sideline catches down. "

I'm not calling these guys or anyone out. It just seems too good to be true... @Terry@BMS What do you think about the S55 ECU?
I seems like the F-series encryption key was leaked. Because it was said tunes for the F10 M5, 228i, 650i/640i were all coming. "

konvikt21 created the thread BimmerBoost Flash questions.
" Very new to the N54 engine and have been considering options for tuning. Wondering if someone can clarify the capability of bimmerboost flash for me. Can you use OTS maps (such as shivs)? Are there any other OTS maps available that are ready to go? I have been looking for awhile but unable to find such simple info.


Thanks In Advance!! "

" I always used to laugh at the idea of an electric turbocharger as it always brought to mind something like this:

But as we know Audi has been working on the electric turbocharger and it is now confirmed as a supplement to the TDI to help provide boost immediately.

American muscle traditionally runs the 1/4 mile. The clientele is different.

I'd like to see someone build a roll on car with one of the motors. "

The nose could barely stay down in the lower gears with less boost so i'd have to see them line up. For we can definitively say 425 isn't enough!

The issue is sorting the chassis and that is up to you and whatever you put it in.
