Vivid Racing BMW 135i

The latest project from Vivid Racing has been completed on the BMW 135i which received several modifications to try and hang with their previous Porsche Twin-Turbo project. Not only does the car perform inside, but looking good on the exterior was also a requirement. Vivid Racing hooked it up with a new aero kit from iCarbon, featuring a new front lip, aggressive rear diffuser, mirror covers, and trunk lip spoiler all made of carbon fiber. Becoming even more popular in the tuning scene are car wraps to give the vehicles a unique look, while also protecting the paint. This BMW 135i was wrapped in a Battleship Gray car wrap that can be peeled off at any time. Vehicle wraps are an investment worth checking out because they can last up to 5 years, and are priced at a fraction of what it costs to paint a new high end car.

Vivid Racing 800HP Porsche 997 Twin-Turbo

The guys from Vivid Racing have completed their Porsche 997 Twin-Turbo with outstanding results from the two Garrett GT3076rs turbos. Their goal was to obtain 800 crank horsepower, and after factoring in a 25 percent drivetrain loss on the Mustang Dyno, final numbers show 642 awhp and 616 ft lbs of torque. Using Softronic ECU flash technology they were able to pull everything together, and used VP 109 fuel to get these final performance numbers. On the dyno, the Porsche 997TT was run at 1.4 bar of boost, but if you are running on pump fuel of 91 octane, it is recommended to only run 1.0 bar of boost. With 93 octane you can run 1.2 bar of boost, and this is easily controlled with the Greddy Profec B Boost Controller.
