The 2 small wires connect via the included Posi-Taps. Location of connection has a black sleeve...you pull that back.Was it hard to hook up the fuel wires, and what does the finished product look like? Could you post pic of fuel wire? Would removal leave bare wire that would need patching? Thanks
Back in the day before there was internets, there was an old adage that a wife will never find her husband's secret stash of dirty movies. He would invariably get busted because he forgot and left the tape in the VCR.
I was like “ok...this guy wants to go”
So we’re inline and the light goes green. No LC...just punched it.
He jumped ahead right away...like 1/2 car length.
Then the magic happened. My car just thrusted....crazy.
Within like 2 seconds...I was ahead. My car switched gears and he moved forward quickly almost ahead of me...but I quickly advanced.
Then everything kicked in...my head blasted back...and she just took off...crazy actually.
Next thing you know...I blasted like 1.5 car lengths ahead. It then just increased. HUGE rush. We both shut down. Almost 2 car lengths at the end.
So my car launches shitty and then spools up and goes like a missle.
Hopefully I explained that good.
Well folks...I officially reached my goal. Way back before I got the JB4...I was always blabbing about wanting to be close to an M3, etc...for 10's of thousands less...with a small investment in a JB4.
Today was the day. Off the light...even...I would inch a bit...then he would inch a bit. Dead even.
Next light...same thing.
He signaled to pull over. We chatted...checked each other's rides out. He loved the G70...and was in utter shock.
His was the DCT...2018 M3...we are talking about a 3.9-4.0 second car here.
I am a proud pappa this afternoon...F'ING SWEET !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Actually...from looking at the BMS Stinger graphs...and taking into consideration crank vs wheel loss number (plus G70 is ~200 lbs lighter)...I am coming up with ~430 HP and ~516 Torque.This is actually really impressive.
The F80 M3 has a dual turbo straight 6 (3.0L) that pumps out 425HP with a really good torque curve that peaks at 406lb-ft. It also only weights a little over 3500lbs.
Our cars weigh a bit over 3800 lbs, and peak out at 365HP and 376lb-ft of torque (again, very aggressive early on torque, most likely more so than the bimmer). One advantage we have is an 8spd tranny that could *theoretically* give us better gear ratios, but I doubt that is the case.
Given the fact that you were neck and neck with him shows that the 3.3TT engine really responds to mods. Stock, this thing is running really conservative. You've got to be running easily over 400HP at the crank - probably right around his same power figures! Also, I think our cars have really good torque numbers a lot earlier than many other performance cars, which actually gives us an edge over what the peak numbers suggest.
Either way, this is outstanding.
Their Stinger is RWD right?
RWD Stinger in GT1 trim is 3820lbs. BMS's car is in GT trim (I think) so they should be around 3750 or so.
G70 Sports 3.3T AWD is about 4,000lbsRWD Stinger in GT1 trim is 3820lbs. BMS's car is in GT trim (I think) so they should be around 3750 or so.
What's the weight of a AWD G70?
Beefer is most likely making more HP than what BMW advertises for the M3. But who knows how much power stock M3s really make. BMW's figures can't be trusted.
