    I suppose seeking the ultimate in performance is following with the McLaren brand ethos. However I do agree that it sucks for the average enthusiast. Maybe I'll come off like an old man but personally I do find limited appeal in a car that does 0-60 in the low 2 second range because I'm never actually going to be able to use any of that performance when I just go for a fun mountain or back road drive. I think I'm not the only one who feels this way, R&T picking the Veloster N as their most fun to drive / enthusiast car of the year definitely demonstrates this same "protest" (against the direction the enthusiast segment is going) mentality. Personally I would rather see more cars with more accessible performance, for example, an even more base model below the 570S that is just more usable and more of a sports car that can be driven hard on the road but isn't meant just for the track. Maybe the "GT" fills that gap in way.

    How long do you expect a set of game finishers to last if they are not maxed out? Are they reasonable to rebuild if there is a problem down the line?

    I've been lurking, these are impressive results. How have they been holding up? Seems like the game finishers keep showing good numbers, especially on pump gas. How are your experiences with these now that you've had then a little while?

    I may have found a partial answer in MY14/15 sales literature. An option to AGILITY CONTROL was the ADVANCED AGILITY package which upgraded mechanical damping to electronic selection of comfort or sport modes. While this option package isn't called out in my Datacard, I have the E/S switch and obviously the connections to my front struts. Would still be nice to confirm the part number if anyone can help... AFAIK the only replacements for this system are offered by Bilstein as DampMatic for the mechanical AGILITY CONTROL dampers, and DampTronic for the electronic ADVANCED AGILITY dampers. Unfortunately both Bilstein alternatives are OEM replacements, not upgrades (their performance level B4). Regardless, they don't offer either for my application :-( Sometimes it sucks having a fringe model when there is little aftermarket interest.

    Ghassan probably put that crank in a vice to straighten it and broke it lol People aren't breaking N55 crank shafts. That's literally the only example that exists. At least not at <700whp they aren't. You know what else has cast cranks? All those junkyard 1000whp LS engines people love so much... pretty much the same size 2" rod journals as well on those cast cranks. It's almost 2020 and people still believe every word they read on the internet... and from people trying to up-sell them on junk N54 parts none the less lol

    Product Page Product Page Product Page APR is pleased to present the ultimate engine control unit (ECU) upgrade for the 3.0T engine! APR’s ECU Upgrades are the best dollar-per-horsepower modification one can make to the 3.0T engine. The upgrades dramatically increase horsepower and torque, making for an exceptionally quicker and more exciting vehicle. This is made possible through APR’s optimization of the factory engine management system to take full advantage of the engine’s capabilities, without needing any end user adjustment. The software loads to the factory ECU through the OBD-II port, resulting in a clean and headache-free install. APR ECU Upgrade Stages APR’s ECU Upgrades support various octanes both with or without any hardware modifications. Each stage is fully compatible with an upgraded intake, intercooler, exhaust, or other minor bolt on modifications. Porsche Mode Switching Each upgrade offers a host of improvements beyond power alone. Using Porsche’s Normal, Sport, and Sport Plus modes offers varying levels of output while retaining all of the unique characteristics present in each mode. Sport and Sport plus modes give you full power and torque. Normal mode give you modest increase over stock, but focuses on economy and comfort. We’ve optimized boost, fueling, ignition, cams, and more to achieve greater power and torque in all scenarios. Features In Sport Plus mode we’ve reduced turbo lag during reapplication of the throttle by building boost while off the throttle. We have linearized the pedal maps for a more predictable throttle response curve, which works exceptionally well on the track. We’ve enabled left foot braking, and brake boosting. The speed limiter has been removed. We’ve optimized the software to better handle larger wheels without excessive torque interventions. And finally we’ve inverted the start stop functionality so the vehicle starts with this feature disabled. Safety With many customers tracking their Porsche, safety is paramount in our calibration strategy. Through the use of extreme datalogging equipment and additional sensors, thermocouples, and transducers, our engineers were able to fully optimize the ECU for advanced safety routines. This includes implementing several routines not enabled from the factory. The entire thermal management system is optimized to reduce engine bay temperature, and reduce intake air temperature, while also implementing advanced protection routines to prevent oil temperature from achieving unsafe levels. The exhaust crackles disable when temperature thresholds are crossed, and are only enabled in sport mode. Next, we help protect the engine from LSPI by preventing the engine from being lugged out in tall gears. We also protect the turbo from damaging compressor surge, and add in turboshaft overspeed protection. We’ve enabled new temperature protection routines to prevent the engine, exhaust, and other components from overheating, and have implemented temperature management strategies that are fully mindful of the platform’s limited fueling capabilities. We’ve optimized the injection strategy to not only deliver a fatter torque curve and better spool, but to reduce the chances of knock, and torque dips. This is also achieved alongside per cylinder ignition advance and fuel trimming. APR Stage 1 ECU Upgrade The APR Stage 1 ECU Upgrade is the first step towards making more power! This simple upgrade requires no engine hardware modifications, and produces 454-501 HP with 439-523 FT-LBS of torque, depending on octane. Gains as high as 102-155 HP and 111-195 FT-LBS of torque are available throughout the power band. To get more power, the vehicle can be outfitted with an upgraded intake, cooling, or exhasut system. APR Stage 1 is available for 91 AKI, 93 AKI, 100 AKI, 104 AKI, and E60-E85 fuel grades in North America, and 95 RON, 98 RON, 104 RON, 108 RON, and E60-E85 in the Rest of the World.

They will flash the ECU via the OBDII port. NOTE At the initial launch we will have limited ECU Box Code support.

    Yup abbreviated B58C and B58B respectively. I think high 450whp, alot more than the n55 hpfp though and alot of people started retrofitting that hpfp on the n55's. Not PnP alot of cutting of the base plate is required because the pump sits at a different orientation so the two but holes don't line up. The electrical plug also sits a bit too high so it needs to be notched a bit, the fuel line outlet doesn't line up so the hard line to the rail needs to be bent which is very difficult since it's so stiff. Also the bottom of the intake manifold needs to be cut a bit for extra clearance. But after that it's PnP in terms of connecting the electrical wiring and not needing a tune like the xdi pumps. Whoops my bad... it's too much work to bring the data here, there at literally hundred of pages to sift through with thousands of posts. I am just bringing the info i remember off of the top of my head. Alot of mini coopers have it too, there are actually alot of NA BMWs with this hpfp, just not in a B58. Like o said before alot of b48's have this hpfp too, and the new s58 should have it as well. Yes, NA is hpd5 Evo flows a bit more than the n55 hpfp, Euro is hpd6 Evo which is 350 bar which is 100 bar more than the hpd5 Evo and flows significantly more than the n55 hpfp, to the point where there is discussion if it can flow more than the xdi 35. Pumps are Bosch made. Overall I personally will stick with the xdi hpfp solutions for a more PnP experience since I don't like how the pump sits after being notched and fitted at an angle. I also don't like having to bend the fuel line and cut the bottom of the intake manifold. Also the wiring is extremely stretched to fit.

    It suffers from the stigma of being the 'cheap' Porsche and even Porsche disrespecting the platform.

    Probably the most fun to drive Porsche platform I think (so long as you don't need 600+ HP to have a good time). The chassis balance and the way it just dives into corners is almost unbelievable.
