    It's been a while since I've done a non-oem power adder, but the reliability and drivability never satisfied in my previous experience.

    Honestly, starting to look like a pretty decent platform. My caring about huge power numbers days are well behind me and I'd be perfectly happy with 500whp in a reliable, comfortable, and well performing chassis.

    Well, another day another Supra B58 output record. Two records here actually with the most powerful boost only MKV Supra at 559 horsepower to the wheels as well as the highest output overall so far at 622 horsepower to the wheels. Not to mention this is the first A90/B58 to crack the 600 wheel mark: The mod list? - Pure Turbos Supra B58 turbocharger at 20 psi ($2395 retail) - Catless downpipe - Race Gas The 622 figure was hit with a 50 shot of nitrous which is great to see disclosed. One run boost only, one run with nitrous specified, and nothing hidden or misleading. The stock plugs are apparently the limitation here. Pure Turbos told BoostAddict the turbo should be good for 650 whp boost only.

    These are GPS results but boy are they promising for the new BMW F97 X3M and F98 X4M. The S58 looks like a powerhouse and if it is muscling these heavy SUV's into the 11's stock imagine what the upcoming G80 M3 is going to do with this motor. Our friends at Fuel-It! provided the Drag GPS readouts: The trap speed and 60 foot unfortunately are not shown but they are 114.55 and 1.85 respectively. Think of it this way, a stock X4M can beat a 707 horsepower Jeep Trackhawk in a drag race. The aftermarket is going to turn these into monsters.

    Gintani is seemingly tuning every Italian car in Southern California these days. The Lamborghini Urus will see quite a bit of tuning due to the 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 under the hood. There is quite a bit to gain and the motor is a powerhouse. These are Mustang dyno results so kindly keep that in mind. The baseline with a full exhaust and catless downpipes on 91 octane is 608 all wheel horsepower and 644 lb-t of torque to the wheels. After Gintani's custom dyno tune? 683 all wheel horsepower and 734 lb-ft of torque at all four wheels: It is not a high revver but more about torque down low as it should be in this heavy beast. Still, it makes nice power to 6500 rpm. With higher octane or methanol injection the car could likely clear 700 to all four wheels on the factory turbos on the conservative Mustang dyno. That is incredible. Wait until we see these things get turbocharger upgrades...

    The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is supposed to be Aston Martin's no nonsense high performance effort. With 715 horsepower from a twin turbo V12 as well as race tuned suspension and lightweight parts, it certainly is a valiant effort. That still does not change the fact this is a heavy and expensive luxury vehicle. Not to mention one with great looks and exclusivity exactly as an Aston Martin should be. The DBS Superleggera comes in at 4200 pounds yet it still manages an impressive laptime of 1:54.6. It does like quite a handful to hustle around the track though. The times below put the effort in context. Aston Martin did a commendable job with the car although it is not going to challenge any top sports cars. Mercedes-AMG GT R PRO: 01.48,00 min Lamborghini Huracan Evo: 01.49,00 min Porsche 911 Carrera S (992): 01.53,30 min Aston Martin DBS Superleggera: 01:54:60 min Audi R8 V10 Spyder Performance: 01.55,20 min Lamborghini Urus: 01.57,10 min Porsche 718 Boxster T (PDK) 01.58.80 min Audi TTRS Coupe: 01.58.80 min Toyota GR Supra: 01.58.80 min

    A ton of great information below from BimmerBoost member @CobraMarty who is known for his MILV's (Modified Intake Lift Valvetronic supports). He recently got a hold of a B58 cylinder head for development and took photos as well as provided his impressions. Enjoy: Didn't sleep well so I got up early and took a pair of calipers to the B58 head that I have. Ports are BIG. B58 Intake is Oval shape- 35.7mm tall x 50mm wide. Not 'rectoval' like the N54/N55 at 29mm x 50mm. B58 Exhaust is also Oval- 29.2mm x 45.7mm wide. Not round like the N54/N55. B58 Valves measure- Intake 29.9-30.0mm, Exhaust 28.4mm. N52/N54/N55 Exhaust valves are all 28mm. N52 intake valves- 34.2mm, N54- 31.4mm, N55- 32mm. So just by 'looks', the B58 head is an improvement. Exhaust especially, Bigger ports and Bigger valves = more flow. Intake, maybe not so much, Bigger ports and smaller valves. IDK, but maybe that combination is better flowing than smaller ports and bigger valves. Or is there another reason or something else going on? The intake valves look to be moved out and right at the edge of the cylinder bore. It doesn't look like a bigger intake valve diameter would fit. Don't throw stones about the B58's 'smaller' intake valves just yet. Interesting is the different engines actual measurements. N52- 85mm bore x 88mm stroke = 2996cc and has the biggest intake valve 34.2mm. Cam is I-255*/E-263* durations. N54/55- 84mm bore x 89.6mm stroke = 2979cc and have 31.4mm and 32mm intake valves. Cams are N54- I-245*/E-261* and N55- I-255*/263* durations. B58- 82mm bore x 94.6mm stroke = 2998cc and has 30mm intake valves which looks to be the largest that would fit the 82mm bore. Cams to be determined. There is a correlation between cylinder bore diameter and intake valve size. Just some simple, basic engine generalities- Bigger bore (bigger intake valve) and shorter stroke make for a higher rev'ing engine. N52 engine. Smaller bore (smaller intake valve) and longer stroke makes for better intake filling and more torque and power across a broader rpm range. B58 engine. Head- very compact latest design, valvetronic eccentric cam and mechanism moved around, No exhaust cam clamshell like Nxx engines, Heavy, must be thicker in all the right places Supports for Intake Valvetronic- up high right on top, easy access, easy removal and replacement, hint MILVs? HPFP- mounts up high right on top, easy access, driven by 3 lobed on exhaust cam, easy to upgrade/replace, hint Xtreme DI Exhaust ports and close up exhaust port- big oval Intake ports and close up intake port- big oval Combustion Chamber and close up- very compact Valvetronic Eccentric cam Motor- externally mounted, up front, easy access, has hex screw to rotate manually Without a doubt, BMW did their homework. The B58 engine looks very promising!!
