I borrowed a friend's cam at the trackday at ASR last Saturday. This was a practice session before the night time attack. Video of the night race should be posted soon.

Your LSx ITB setup looks like ****, eat this...

While our owner/founder was taking his E60 M5 introduction class as part of his factory training, he theorized that the advanced knock control would continue to advance timing and make power, so long as the octane rating was high enough. This was the main reason behind our decision to run water-meth on the N/A S65B40 (which is based off the E60 M5's S85B50). We feel that as long as the adaptive knock control can keep pushing timing with a higher octane from the water-meth, we'll keep trying to pull power from that. In the years since that factory training, we've kept working with water-meth on N/A systems to see if his theorizing was correct, and we haven't hit any trip-ups as of now.

Obviously, risks are inherent. We understand that.

Your BMW ITB meth dribble setup looks like **** a little trick, eat this...

Here is what it takes to make a true 700hp, 11:1 compression, pump gas engine without any funny business. Keep in mind that this is a 500ci engine with a 4.500" stroke so we are not revving it very high either.

Street Attack 500
Custom camshaft - a little more aggressive but still streetable, still hydraulic
Kinsler crossram manifold - makes it less streetable
11:1 compression
March front drive
Katech carbon fiber valve covers (prototype pictured)
Show prepped intake runners, valley cover, water pump, oil pan - Atomic Orange
Painted engine block/heads
Kinsler makes some fancy stuff.

California’s fee for a 3-day late payment is equivalent to a 2,521% annualized interest rate.



And this little stunt enables the state to raise more revenue by levying higher and more aggressive late fees by reducing the time between the receipt of the bill and payment by 95%.

Implementing this policy in the summer also increases the probability that people will miss their payments because they are away on vacation.

The nice thing about california is you can pay your fees without getting your inspections--so even though your **** wont pass, you aren't penalized.

in VA, I can't pay my **** early and get the emissions test later. bullshit.

you also arent paying $111 a year in fees. Just $56 a year for registration + safety inspection.

move out of nova if you don't want to deal with emissions

If you're rocking that M3 (or whatever it is) with that setup, you are fine with blowing **** up. Same with the hardware I posted.

LSx is weak sauce

Someone recently hit 500 bhp with bolt-ons, cams, and ported heads. They didnt have IRTBs though, they used the boss 302 manifold.
