Noticed an interesting thing about the dyno chart on page 2.

It stops at just under 6000rpm (5870 is highest achieved rpm). At that stage the HP is still increasing quite steeply. Most other runs I have seen goes to over 7000rpm, and even though the power curve evens out towards the end it still rises until a bit over 6000rpm.

Judging from that, your run should have given even better HP numbers if it had reached max rpm's.

So to make sure I have this correct, for $19000 dollars you get an exhaust, downpipes, tune, intake, and 2 what appear to be standard Garrett Bearing housing's plated in gold, and slightly upgraded wheels? Ok, I just find this hard to believe. F10 guys if you are really looking for a good quality turbo upgrade at a decent price, let us know we will jump on it and get it done. We have already completely shaken up the N54 world after being involved for 5-6 months and have taken the pump gas record first time on the dyno and that was just the start of the tuning.

Gotta concur with Tony here. I'd expect a vagina in the lower dash for 9k for that quality of hardware and unknown tuning...19k is a good April Fool's joke.

Where did Ghanem disappear ? We've been told that there will be some videos by 1st of April but we didn't hear anything from him !!! Rumors around are that the car is having misfiring problems along with other issues. Not only for the VIP+ stage but even for the VIP stage .

We are all interested in your project and we are waiting for your updates on it as its been a while since we heard anything from you or your tuner.

Wish you the best of luck.

Im not posting in this forum anymore, for some weird reason the threads i posted were moved. While all other tuner threads are still here. Anyway soon there will be a full video for the car, its true we had some misfiring problems, but they are already sorted out. Just waiting for some parts to arrive from Germany so its going to be like a month till the whole thing is done.

They are expecting the upgraded turbos, AMS DP's, exhaust and their grouppe M intake they should get close to 1000 at crank.
I am diligently looking foreword to the AMS upgrade.
AMS isn't an out of country tuner that will not warranty and their customer service rocks from what I hear from most of the members in different GTR forums.

With that being said HURRY UP TUNER IN GER!!! =)

Yes. Talked to them last week. Turbos are available to order, but they don't even wnt to put them on the car because no softwre is available and you are risking losing your short block.

You guys are funny.
I am wondering if this will be the stage 5555 VIP+++++ with Boost+++++ upgrade that was announced back in February of 2013.

Since then instead of keyboard racing and wishful thinking I decided to actually learn how to drive the car and make it faster with what's available and my skills.
Good luck to all the wishful internet forum racers.

While this post is true in spirit, we honestly have been working on the upgrade for the S63, and S63TU. This will be a full Ball Bearing upgrade using proven Garrett GTX28 turbochargers and will be plug and play. I also agree with the person above that until full tuning becomes available its going to be hard to take advantage, but we are working on them, and hope to have something show by the end of the year. Thanks!
