I drove my car to vegas for SEMA, and had friend drive it back. Smashed on it a few times, car temps never raised. DCT runs great, no issues, and yes gintani remapped it. On the way back my friend did some pulls with an E55 modded that ran an 11.4 @ 122 or 123 with some sticker tires not drags thou.. and they were neck and neck he said, was rolling starts and said whoever got on gas first won by a hair...and car wasnt even fully tuned yet, posted vid of dyno after finishing dyno tune the other day, in video section.

I personally witnessed the pulls when the G-Power car made 540rwhp and 380tq. It was as smooth as glass. Whatever tuning issues there were are now history.

But they highly recomemded it for everyone else And the dyno tightie posted on his for S/C sale thread is not even his! Its Technik's. Nothing personal tightie but thats dirty.
Aren't you selling your stroker car?

Mind telling the class why?

It didnt blew up neither does it have any issues. As a very few know, I have a 2010 GT3 arriving next month, but since the 08 Superleggeras have dropped nicely, I'll most likely pick one up instead. I should not keep both due to car insurance reasons and I now want something I can drive and track without dealing with the regulations Verts have in FL. Its that simple. I will also be attending this with http://www.topgunrun.com/ the RS46 Saturday with a group from SoFL.

Do I get an A?

Blowing 4 custumer's car should not be taken lightly, especially when the product was first released. I bet it was a great feeling to have the car in a shop for 4 months...sorry not 4, it was 5 months.

I say all this because you act as if the issue you had with G-Power was cool, your attitude comes off as "it's cool, I paid $15k for the S/C, it blew my motor within 2 months, it took G-Power 4 months to fix it, but G-Power is great either way, yay!!!!!" That shit was not cool at all nor Do I wish anybody to go through such headaches. Yet you wanna bash and make assumptions on other S/C companies, such as design and tunning. Ironic, isn't?

Anybody can develop a S/C? G-Power couldn't. And the fact that they supposedly fixed it does not okay the 4 blown customer cars.
Post of the year.

And obviously G-power changed the mapping and the kompressor from when I and josh had the kit on our cars so obviously he's going to post the latest dyno theres nothing "dirty" about that especially since its public knowledge to anyone who pays attention . Btw I'm not acting as if its nothing obviously whats done is done and its fixed what should I do cry and whine about it everyday even though its already fixed??
When the first 2 G-Powered M3s in the US blow their motors; the owners suddenly want to part out and sell their cars afterwards although G-Power "fixed the tune"; owners act as if a blown motor and 5 month repair wait time is part of the deal; blown M3 owners advertise their G-Power S/C for sale with results performed on another car never having acheived such results themselves and portraying the results as their own....it raises alot of different questions.

Its okay though Jon, goodluck with car/the sale. I'm not gonna continue this thread jack here.

Very nice garage you have. Just curious, does the tag say F430 Scuderia?

LOL seriously? Instead of wondering about me and my car/g-power s/c you should talk to RD sport so they can make your car worth talking about after all you spent twice as much as I did so you should get your money worth. You spent all that money on your stroker and its still slower then my car WITHOUT the G-power thats gotta hurt. Sounds like you've been had worse then me maybe you should complain and make a big deal and stomp your feet like you expect me to do. You know full well you're selling your car because its not what you expected it to be so STFU. My motor blowing has shit to do with me wanting to sell my car and or not wanting reinstall my S/C right away.

Do you have parental consent to be here? I didn't think 12 year olds were allowed here.

-No full bolt-on M3 has ever pulled away from me, and I always substantially pull from them, whether coupe or sedan, NVM an E93.
-A stock E60 M5 could not pull away from me, in a CEC Miami meet.
-4-5 CL's on what seemed to be a modded non-Z06 Corvette in a 80-160 mph pull.
-4-5 CL's on JEMarsal's stock E90 M3(no passanger, I had a passanger, and my car is a vert, in a 15-85mph pull.
-JEMarsal's friend witnessed a pull against S/C'ed modded Cobra w/no passanger, while I had a passanger in my car , in a 15-85mph I was ahead by 1/4 CL.

I do have a 3.62 diff with salisbury 3 disk carrier and variable ramps also, in case those results do not compute in you undeveloped brain.

NVM the gains the RS46 has while running 100 gas.

You've never seen my car perform as it is now, or before for that matter, others have.

And you think you know why I'm selling my car better than I do? You are completely clueless.

HAHAHA... "You spent all that money on your stroker and its still slower then my car WITHOUT the G-power thats gotta hurt" When you grown up, if you find the right audience, you should be a comedian.

The people in AutoTalent knew I'd be buying the car(s) I'm buying now since last December... while the stroker was being built. Yet you think you know better why I'm selling this car...

Perhaps you should dyno your car again and prove your claim as well .

You're taking dyno results from Dyno-A and comparing them to different results from Dyno-B as if the comparison has any validity whatsoever. I just can't figure out why you feel the need to be so deceptive to people by making it sound like the stroker barely outperforms your bolt-ons. When I get some time, I'll post some of the latest results from one of the same dyno's you used.

So refreshing to see someone not brainwashed, thinking for themselves, and willing to speak up.

I'll settle this, here is my offer.

PG, I'm really sick of your stroker this stroker that nonsense. I will pay your famoso entrance fee. Your car is already down here for the "forum wars" competition, lol. Come get a piece of some real competition, you vs. me at the strip. Lets see if that stroker can put its power down somewhere other than in your posts.

Very simple, none of your "street racing" excuses, I'll pay for you to come out to the track and go head to head against the real M3 competition.

Stroker people, the motor is very nice for those that want to keep it NA yadda yadda yadda. The fact of the matter is, you will not be in the same zipcode as a boosted M3. Think I'm wrong? Let's see PG step up, because he just got called the F out. If not, go stroke yourselves.

No, it is not. Technik, aka Samir, is the one importing the kits and tuning them.

What is dirty is that Samir lied and F'd over Tightie, that is dirty. Know the full story before you comment on it, please.

Everything you say about misleading people can be applied to you as well.

I suppose it is different when you hide behind some red lettering next to your name, eh?

The strokers will not come to the track because they won't even top the bolt on DCT times... there has been plenty of time to get out there, hasn't there?

What was that 60-130 time again?

20k does not look too good when it can't top 2k.
