    I`d rather see a stock car race a car with a carbon intake/map. Then we`ll decide whats ****e for the money. :muttley:

    Hi,

    An 11 degrees difference is nothing in terms of air intake temperature compensation on the software.... maybe 2 hp at best.

    We'll give you a laptop and cable and your welcome to test your intake temps on the road vs ambient..... I can assure you almost always have a 10degC difference!

    The intake probe is placed inside the airbox and that is a very realistic reading.

    Guys.....

    we drive supercharged M3's and there is no way on earth an NA car even with 370hp is going to touch a supercharged 440hp car with well over 300 lb.ft torque.

    I wonder if the people who have done these very basic tests have turned the traction control off before having a drag race. If not.... I can assure you power has been cut while accelerating.

    I no what your saying and a SC car is obviously faster but why is it all past 100mph or can this be changed in anyway, My problem is i want the 550bhp kit as soon as its out but im not prepared to spend silly money if it doesnt impress me, 460 in any other car is fast but i was not impressed when racing with one

    Maybe it had a boost leak?
    Maybe the driver was crap?
    Maybe traction was on and it cut in?

    I got beat by a standard Golf MK4 1.8t while driving an e39 M5......left the traction on, not such good tyres and it just would not put the power down.

    There wont be many cars making a genuine 550HP on stock internals with fuel bought from a forecourt. Not reliably anyway.

    We`re comparing times (under 100) where its very hard to see a noticeable difference on the road for most cars. Weight and traction are far more important at lower speeds. Take the Lotus exige S for example 0-100 is the same as an E60 M5, 0-150 and I`ll bet the E60 is easily 3-400M in front.

    The science behind it is as speed increases the force needed to carry on accelerating rises exponentially, hence this will always be where big HP cars shine. Another example is the Ford GT, only 1s or so quicker to 100 than a GT3 but 6s quicker to 150 and at 150mph 6s = 400m`s. 1s at 100mph = only 44m`s.
