UPDATED Dyno results: switched to K&N typhoon intake kit + Joe Z PTS ExhaustDyno'd 379.1whp 353 ft lbs tq on this same Dyno.
JoeZ intake pipe and PTS ExhaustDyno results: Lowest reading was 361rwhp 339 ft lbs of tq and highest of the day was 367rwhp and 343 ft lbs tq with Joe Z intake and Exhaust on DynoDynamics.
Baseline stock run I did was 356rwhp and 333 ft lbs of tq stock. I was kind of dissapointed with the gains of 11hp and 10 lbs tq and I think I would of pulled better if the car was more cooled down as I drove straight to the Dynoshop in rush hr with no engine cool down time and straight on the Dyno. Also I just installed the intake yesterday with only 80 miles driven with it.
2014 BMW i8 Review

What's New for 2014
The 2014 BMW i8 is an all-new model.
Based on the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car shown a few years
ago, the 2014 BMW i8 represents the German automaker's vision of a
high-performance plug-in hybrid. If this is what the future looks like,
sign us up. Zero to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds? A full charge in three hours
from a regular garage outlet? Approximately 95 mpg? Yes, please.
For the i8, BMW chops its classic 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine
formula in half. The i8 uses a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder
paired with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. The
three-cylinder drives the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic
transmission, while the electric motor powers the front wheels through a
The engine and electric motor combine for 362 horsepower, 420 pound-feet
of torque and all-wheel-drive performance, all integrated into a chassis
that is 10 pounds lighter and 1.5 inches longer than the 3 Series. The i8
also delivers stellar handling thanks to 50/50 weight distribution and a
low, centrally mounted battery pack, although standard 20-inch wheels seem
like a suspect choice for maximizing corner-to-corner performance.
BMW says the i8 can also travel 22 miles and reach a top speed of 75 mph on
electrons alone. Uncorked with the gasoline engine in the lead, it will
reach a top speed of 155 mph. Sounds like a pretty good future to us.
Lightweight construction helps bring lofty performance within reach,
notably an aluminum chassis, chemically hardened glass (similar to that
used in smartphones) and extensive use of carbon-fiber-reinforced panels
within the 2+2 passenger cabin. Those plus-2 rear seats are small, however,
smaller than even a Porsche 911's, and are best considered auxiliary
luggage space. Even settling into the front seats requires some practice
given its unique scissor-lift-style doors.
We drove a recent i8 prototype and found the i8's easy thrust in
all-electric mode a close match for the Tesla Model S. In its Sport mode
(there are also Comfort and Eco Pro settings), the i8 further awakens,
feeling light, agile and averse to body roll. The hybrid never quite
overwhelms with acceleration, but it also never feels winded, the electric
motor's torque nicely covering for the small turbo as the latter winds up to deliver its power
Whatever the i8 lacks in competitive performance, it won't lack for style.
Its low-slung profile is punctuated by standard U-shaped LED headlights.
You can even order the i8 with laser headlights where regulations allow
(sorry, U.S. shoppers). Inside, a multitiered and layered cockpit design
uses recycled materials and naturally treated leather for upholstery and
panel surfaces Like the smaller i3 electric car, the i8 will offer three
trim levels -- Mega, Giga and Tera -- all with varying degrees of sport and
The 2014 BMW i8 arrives in the spring and starts around $136,000. That's
well above its most obvious target, the Tesla Model S, and that kind of
money also buys a lot of Porsche 911. Performance aficionados won't likely
be swayed and may even look across the BMW lineup to the "M" cars. But for
the hybrid buyer seeking power, performance and efficiency through a lower
profile, the 2014 BMW i8 presents a unique choice.
Check back for more information on the 2014 BMW i8, including specs,
driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.

had to make some important edits to the original copy. If you rated it
already, please do so again, I really appreciate it! The original will be

that in mind for the future that the links will need to be replaced with

Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the prototype 2015 Lexus NX. A more complete "In Depth Review"
will follow with they begin to hit showrooms later this year.
MSRP pricing for the NX has not been released. I will update this as soon
as it's available.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHANNEL SEE BELOW: In this channel you will
find in depth educational videos of automobiles from all over the world,
presented in a more detailed fashion than ever before. Basically, this
gives the viewer the chance to view the most detailed 1st person look you
can get without going to an actual dealer yourself! Every video is
consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my
presentations. I treat every vehicle with the same respect whether a 1960
Chevrolet Impala SS or the 2012 Lamborghini Aventador. I film all types of
vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of
the automotive enthusiast. You will see everything from vintage, brand new,
exotic, mainstream, old, etc. I am very proud of this channel and have
built it up from amateur videos years ago to what you see today. I wanted
to share my love for the automotive world with the rest of the world. Be
sure to explore the massive video variety, have fun and enjoy The Driver's
Seat of YouTube!

2015 Lexus NX 200t F-Sport Luxury Crossover Test Video Review
sover-first-drive-and-review-124741/?id=32972 The NX is an all-new model
for Lexus which has never had a compact crossover SUV in its line-up. This
is not uncharted territory as the RX-line has been one of the best-selling
crossovers year after year. The Lexus NX is based on the Toyota RAV4
platform but sources say that this vehicle is 90% different. This crossover
does come across as a real Lexus and not simply a rebadged vehicle.
Under the hood is a brand new 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-clinder engine that makes 235 horsepower and 258
lb-ft. of torque. This particular model has the F-Sport package which adds
unique styling, different wheels, stiffer suspension, tighter steering,
Premium LED Headlights, and more.
Design wise the NX fits in with the rest of the Lexus Family featuring the
unique Spindle Grille up front. Everywhere you look there are character
lines to make the NX stand out. The front bumper is aggressive and the rims
are very cool indeed. This is certainly a very stylish crossover.
Lexus is looking to attract a younger group of consumers. There is no
question the distinct styling will attract younger buyers. Another factor
is the fact the NX will fill the entry level gap that is missing in the
