    Makes you wonder if BMW's are just tuned a little better out of the box. Perhaps a good performance tune of the ATS would make the numbers any farther apart. Perhaps both the BMW and GM 2L turbos contain a large reserve of power just waiting to be unleashed with a decent tune and some easy bolt-ons.

    Two important points from the article. First, the BMW was tested in February, and cooler temperatures always equal more power, especially when not being fed 93 octane. Second, as these cars didn't get 93 octane, the results could be different if they were tested in an area with better fuel (and preferably with no ethanol, either). Tests of production cars at the same time with better gas will be more telling, IMO.

    The 2.0T in the ATS is VERY conservatively tuned. We should be able to get that number to around 280WHP and 325-350WTQ with just a tune based on what we've seen over the last 4 years of tuning these 2.0Ts from GM

    I had a 2010 SS with about 40 over stock at the wheels. I never had any issues, but then again it was an SS.

    Most people won't. But I know two guys, locally, with nothing more than headers and cam, broke their drive-shafts.

    My point is, most of the cars sold now have more marginal drive trains than in the past. In the quest to reduce weight and cost, something has to give. The designers make up for it with torque management, but that can only do so much.

    Very true. Add power and find weakness in clutch, transmission, driveshaft, rear end, half shafts and hubs... Adding 50 hp for $2000 costs 4000 in drivetrain and brake upgrades...

    The smart gearheads today are upgrading the drivetrain first. Kudos to them. Get the chassis ready, then start adding powa!
