    If you are low on running backs and need a stop gap for the week...you might want to look at Boom Herron for the COLTS. T-Rich might not play so I could easily see Boom getting his workload. They will not over utilize Bradshaw in Richardson's absence. I am intersested to see what he can do...looked great in preseason and last week in garbage time against Cincy. What do you guys think?

    Dinan launched a new BMW club racing engine based on the S65 V8 out of the E9X M3 models. Dinan increases the bore and stroke to increase displacement from 4.0 liters to 4.6 liters. Just as with Dinan's standard S65 stroker motor the bore and stroke goes to 94mm x 83mm. Now might be a good time to bring up an old BimmerBoost S65 V8 stroker comparison article from 2010. This was the statement BimmerBoost made about the potential of the S65 stroker motors: 'By shifting the power band to the left the torque curve falls off faster not allowing the stroker to show full potential with the stock cam profile that was not designed for it. Neither Dinan or RDsport address the cams.' Well come 2014 Dinan does address the cams and that explains why the club racing S65 engine makes an additional 80 horsepower over the standard stroker. Dinan is essentially giving the motor a dry sump, adding Schrick cams, and a more aggressive tune. Now, $39,999.00 is a lot of money for a stroked S65 with a dry sump oiling system one can get from VAC and Schrick cams. Especially considering the engine requires a standalone engine control system that is not included in the price. That means this engine gets up close to $50k when all is said and done. Now, there is no point to have another discussion on Dinan pricing as Dinan is well aware of his own pricing. BimmerBoost could build this motor for almost half the price though and have it tuned on the stock DME meaning you could use it in a street car if you wanted to without the need for a standalone ECU. What is really nice to see is more aggressive cams paired with the stroker motor. So Dinan's 580 horsepower quoted output is about right considering an RD Sport stroker without the aftermarket cams hits 441 wheel horsepower (Dinan in customary fashion does not provide a dynograph at the wheels): One could expect in the ~500 whp range depending on the tune and fuel quality in naturally aspirated form from a stroked S65 V8 paired with some aggressive cams. That certainly would be a lot of fun on the racetrack which is obviously what this motor is built for. Dinan: For those seeking the ultimate high performance driving experience, Dinan has once again redefined M3 performance with a bored and stroked 4.6 liter version of BMW's V-8 engine complete with a dry sump lubrication system and solid lifter camshafts. The engine produces 580 horsepower at 8200 RPM along with increased torque of 390 lb-ft at 6900 RPM. The engine is supplied as an assembled long-block, fully prepared.. Due to the engine’s high state of tune, a Bosch or Motec stand-alone engine management system is required to run this breed of S65 engine. Dinan's 35 years of BMW tuning and racing experience ensure that the engines will perform for lasting trouble free driving excitement. Much of the technology that has made Dinan's Grand-Am Daytona Prototype engines both competitive and reliable has carried over to the 4.6 Liter V-8 engine program for street and amateur racing use, ensuring that the engines produce great power along with race-proven durability Features and Specification of the Dinan® S65 4.6L Club Racing Engine: + 4.6L long block (bore = 94mm; stroke = 83mm; compression ratio = 12:1) + Peak Power: 580 HP @ 8200 RPM and 390 ft-lbs @ 6900 RPM + High lift camshafts with solid lifters + Dry Sump lubrication system + Dinan proprietary billet crankshaft + Dinan proprietary lightweight forged pistons + Dinan proprietary light-weight connecting rods + Balanced, blueprinted and dynoed + Dinan serial numbered block + NO DINAN WARRANTY + RACING ONLY PART + NOT EMISSIONS LEGAL Core Program: Engines are a part of the CORE program we utilize at Dinan so you will be charged an additional fee on top of MSRP initially. This fee will then be refunded to you once your qualifying engine core has been received at Dinan. This ensures we have a continuous stream of product for rebuilding purposes and the lowest possible price to the consumer.

    Turns out you are right...5 mins of digging proves that OP is Rob Eskew who just happens to be an owner of Markert Motor Werks.... Interesting that your car is on the front page of MMW and it looks like you have a Georgia license plate and the company in question is based in Atlanta: Also your picture above looks awfully similar to this guy: In my opinion it is perfectly fine to promote/advertise your products but its not right to pretend to be a customer to dodge vendor fees here and on the other forum... Honesty is best policy.

    I think in general helical LSD's are rated for higher torque as well. That might not be true in every case but I remember at least for the Mfactory units their helical lsd was rated much higher than their clutch type "racing" version.

    I like clutch type LSD's too because you can rebuild them real cheaply and based on how you assemble the clutch disks you can get more or less lockup even with just the stock disks. (STI rear diff) That said, I have a torsen front and rear diff in my personal car and I don't really know what you mean when you say they are unpredictable. In my experience literally the only thing worse about the helical LSDs is if you lift a tire in a corner. In drag racing, burn outs, or if your suspension is dialed in to not lift the inside tire then the helical/torsen LSD is very predictable and puts the power down.

    Congrats on good runs for the first time out! Curious if he had any passes before the turbo upgrade or not. That would tell a lot on how this upgrade has help improve his times. Kinda like dynos and having a delta pull and then again with upgrades. It will be different on every car... Would love to learn more about your Level 10 upgrade! I will shoot you a PM so this thread does not go way off topic. :)

    Couldn't agree more, when I had dealings with Market, the person I always spoke to was Rob, could be a coincidence I guess, but seem like pretty heavy marketing for a customer review. A clutch type LSD is a clutch type LSD, there is no magic in the one reviewed

    Honestly, your previous posts in other threads were a couple of "interesting" or "great discussion". Then you post a super enthusiast review and "forget" to mention other existing clutch type LSDs (OS Gicken, drexler), implying all other LSDs are torque based. Sorry the whole thing looks very much like disguised advertising.

    Coincidence that the guy I dealt with at Markets name was Rob? You seem to be pushing this thing pretty hard just to be a customer...
