G POWER BMW M6 Gran Coupe 2014 Front Angle One of The World’s Strongest BMW M6 Gran Coupe is made by G POWERTherefore G-POWER is using the hidden potential of the BMW M6 Gran Coupé for a power output enhancement of awesome 150 hp and 210 Nm of torque. The G-POWER Bi-Tronik 5 V4 pushes the factory 560 hp/ 680 Nm to 710 hp/ 890 Nm.

The basis for the electronic output increase is the fact that G-POWER, in contrast to the manufacturer, does not use standard software full of compromises but an individual solution for the engine. Among others, the parameters for the amount of fuel and the ignition timing are modified depending on the increased boost level. In case of the G-POWER Bi-Tronik 5, these modifications are made by a micro-processor that is patched in before the standard BMW ECU. Of course all standard protection and diagnostic functions of the original BMW ECU stay untouched. During the engineering process of the latest generation of the successful Bi-TRONIK the G-POWER R&D department has transferred its experience from the area of supercharging to the turbocharged BMW engines. After all, the ASA supercharger used for the G-POWER supercharger systems is closely related to the turbochargers featured by BMW, since both units us a centrifugal compressor to build up boost.

REMUS BMW F22 Street Race 2014 Rear REMUS Gives New BMW 2 series M235i More Sound, Power and PerformanceMore power and torque at less weight: REMUS has developed a sport exhaust system for the new BMW 2-series coupe M235i. The company’s sound experts coax not only the distinctive sonorous-aggressive roar typical for REMUS from the 3.0-liter BMW engine, but also extra power. The power increases from 318.4 to 331.5 hp, while the torque climbs from 441.3 to 460.2 Nm. At the same time, the system is more than 3 kg lighter.

With the two-part cat-back front silencer, a sport silencer as well as two tailpipe sets, REMUS provides a perfect-fit solution for the current top model in the F22 series (from construction year 2014). “New Wolf Inside”: This is the manufacturer’s marketing slogan for its new developments. The innovative sport exhaust systems feature all-round shot-blasted surfaces, and thrill with an even more aggressive sound plus lighter-weight construction. That is partly down to thinner, yet equally strong walls. The more aggressive sound is generated by a new internal design of the silencers. The fully shot-blasted surfaces made from stainless steel with aerodynamic optimized inner workings guarantee long life and consistent sound. (more…)
