Yes, sadly. Eric was a great guy and is missed by many. He pushed hard very early in S55 development.

I am strongly considering dropping my car off and going with the full GC+ upgrade package around March/April. Would love to see some numbers beforehand.

Also, what is the turn around time on that?

Do it! I am excited to see third party GC+ results too.

As far as turn-around, it really depends on how busy the shop is at that time, but for your planning purposes, if you allow a window of 2 weeks we can beat that handily.

Yeah, I am really hoping I can get around 600rwhp with 91ACN.

When I get the full package with Cary Jordans custom tune, does that include any dyno time for tuning?

VTT Game Changer turbos and real-world results on blackey 's M3, which is no stranger to the track. Once strapped the dyno, we were able to reach a respectable 660whp & 631tq, dialing the power back a bit to ensure reliability at the track. That's a whopping 235whp gain, factoring in most M3/M4s average at ~425whp stock on dynojet. Expect even more on E85, as there's still a lot of power left on the plate.

Modifications
- VTT "Game Changer" Turbo Upgrade
- VTT Silicone chargepipes
- BM3/Cary Jordan Tuning 100 octane tune
- Dinan High Performance Heat Exchanger
- Evolution Racewerks Catless Downpipes
- BMC Filters
- Dinan Muffler
- 19" Signature SV-101 Wheels (street)

Runs are on 100 octane, easily accessible at any track with a backup 91 octane file for the drive to/from home. No trailer for this beast.

91ACN, your not going to get 600whp without meth injection, or running octane booster in each tank. The CA gas is not what it used to be. Anyone dynoing afew years ago I don't think can be compared. It's just horrible now. I'm at a very conservative 540 on 91. If you look there was a Pure STG2+ at Autotalent I believe that put our 550 on 91ACN as well.

Turbos are still running great btw.

Mine is a daily driver, and I use it for work. No issues. A lot of fun though.

As long as your tune is adjusted appropriately for it, it's safe. A log from time to time to ensure no excessive timing corrections/etc. is still prudent, regardless of platform or fuel.
