That looks like pretty modest gains

Did you guys get a chance to look at the stock N20 intercooler yet? I wonder what that's like size-wise compared to the N55 one.

Yes we did. We have removed and measured the stock cooler. We have a design in Solidworks and will be making a few prototypes for testing. The stock cooler is similar in core depth to the N55 cooler, but has slightly more frontal area. We have some pretty slick improvements in the pipeline. This time we won't release drawings before bringing the cooler to market--we've learned our lesson on that one. As always we will post release datalogs and dynos as we develop.

We will be back at Helix on Monday, folks, we took our annual two-day summer vacation on Thursday and Friday. Calls will be returned then.

F30 JB Tuner initial Dyno

We strapped the F30 on the dyno today and did before and after runs for Burger Tuning's beta JB tuner for the N20 motor. The next step is to drive the car on the tuner and check for DTCs. For a first map the gains were solid: Apologies for the iPhone pic, but we shut the shop down early due to excessive heat.

Helix Happy Hour!

This Friday at about 6pm, we'll be doing another happy hour. If you haven't been to one before, it's pretty informal--we just fire up the grill, have something to drink, and hang around and kick tires. We'll provide munchies and something to drink. If you have an interesting six-pack, bring it along to swap with others. No need to RSVP, but drop us a line if you have questions. 267 335 4337.

AWE BOV kits will be back in stock on Monday! When they are finally in our hands, we'll make calls to all the standing orders to confirm.

Pic unrelated but cool, by O. Mattson:

Tomorrow night a few Fangios and Schumachers are heading to Speed Raceway (http://www.facebook.com/speedraceway) for some hot laps in their brand new karts. We'll be there around 7:30. If you're in the area, c'mon down, or better yet, stop off at the shop after work and caravan down there with us.

Oscar, our illustrious photographer and web guy, is out at Pebble Beach this weekend, taking in the great cars new and old. He has promised to send me a stream of images from the events. I'll post as I get.

Sweet McLaren! There's a dealership nearby me. I wonder I'd they give test drives?
