My n54 made 500 ft-lbs @ 2200 rpm with catless downpipes and a tune, these figures seem completely reasonable for those doubters of modern turbo bmw engines.
Poor ZF8... hopefully it will endure
Speaking of the trans, is it the 50 that is the Supra?
Technically it is denoted as 51 but yes it is a 50
I think Tada-San and Toyota had a poker face this entire time. "Gentlemen's agreement V2.0"
My only worry is that this car doesn’t behave like it makes those numbers. I have seen quite a few videos and it launches very decently. I’d expect a car with those numbers to do be a tire shredding monster.
So either it doesn’t make those numbers or it’s dialed in perfectly
It's "underpowered" because it's a BMW engine.
hmmm, not so much!
Don't hear much hate-speak now from the web. Imagine that!
It's all about the balance Tada is always lusting after/over.
I think it's actually about somebody knowing how to launch a car instead of going HAM. LOL
The haters are still at it.
Well, launch control can really help obviously with avoiding tire fires off the line, but sadly, so does an auto. Clutch dropping 426lbs/ft would be dramatic. But for sure, I'd like to see these dyno numbers verified on another car. C&D was wondering if the torque converter was locking right at the torque peak, but I don't see how a slipping converter would result in higher numbers.
Ha, I knew it! That torque curve looked too similar to what those old restricted race cars did.
If you speak French this is a wonderful video.
