LOL... just saw an 08 M6 Conv. Silver on black int... looks totally stock except a little "biturbo" badge right under the M6 badge on the trunk lid.... what the hell is all that about?????
As far as I know there isn't a twin turbo kit out there for this car yet.. but then again I could be wrong....
an old white guy with only half of his hair left was driving... in the pax seat was a hot hot little brunette 1/4 his age... LOL... I wonder what the daily rate for her was... anyway... just wondering if this guy was on the board...

poker

Hey Ryan...
I read about it somewhere on this forum... apparently they meet up at the airport and drive around town... go through check points and get given a card with a certain value on it... and I guess at the end of the day what ever cards you have... thats your hand...who ever has the best hand wins... or something along that line... I just want to know if its on a Saturday or Sunday.... I hope Sunday.. so I can go see whats its all about.

Yea, its in the southeast events thread, or you can look on their website www.cfbmw.org , its also posted in the forums on ours www.floridagerman.com


You pretty much have it, meet up, they give you a paper with a route to drive to 5 locations and you get a card at each and whoever gets the best hand wins prizes and such.

Its this Saturday, as in tommorrow, around 11:30 I think they want everyone to be there by so they can get everyone registered.

Must be a FL thing with the older guys... Ran into an older fellow (twice) with a SLK55 with a "kompressor" badge on the side. We played on the road for a split second the first time and were pretty even overall. When I asked if he was supercharged or had a swap or...? he answered that the car was not supercharged which made sense based on our very brief run. He should have a slight advantage over me stock much less supercharged..

I believe 55s are Supercharged. Its the 63 engines that are N/A

Some 55's are supercharged including E55's (last gen), CLS55's, SL55's etc. Some 55's are not supercharged including SLK55's, E55's (first gen), CLK55's etc. You are correct in stating that no current 63's come supercharged from the factory.

The below is from MBUSA.com re the SLK55:

Engine 5,439 cc AMG-built SOHC 24-valve 90° V-8 engine. Aluminum-alloy cylinder block with reinforced valvetrain. Alloy cylinder heads and lightweight, high-performance camshafts with matched lightweight racing-derived pistons and connecting rods and balanced with a high-strength steel crankshaft.


Net power 355 hp @ 5,750 rpm
Net torque 376 lb-ft @ 4,000 rpm
