    I'm wondering if the owner (dad) is just ting to rethink his 2.2 million dollar purchase . I think it said 1.3mil plus another donation to the race team totaling 2.2mil. I guess if you have money to blow, why not.

    Common to delete on NA high HP builds, which while a bit of a lazy hack thing to do, isn't so bad.. Only a loss on a turbo build. Even up top.

    Yes of course the rotating assembly is balanced. Typically almost no work is needed. We balance to .5 gram- crank/rods/pistons, and if the client has a flywheel/pressure plate available- it, too at the same time.

    Hey guys...Unfortunely it is time to let this car go. Car was a blast to drive and deff turned heads and received plenty of compliments! Car has tons of mods, cosmetics, performance, ect... I was going to have a motor built by motiv and throw a doc race single turbo kit on, but I've decided to part ways and move to a different platform. The car will need a motor, as one of the rods let go. Like I said, I was going to throw a built n54 in but things changed.The car has the following: PERFORMANCE: Rb super evo turbos Rb inlets and outlets Vrsf Downpipes Motiv port injection Fuel it stage 3 lpfp Stett chargepipe and tail bov Vrsf 7in intercooler Split second pi controller Kw v1 coilovers New low mileage auto trans Control arms M3 race alignment ...prob more I'm missing COSMETICS: custom vinyl wrap (car is jet black underneath, perfect paint) 18in apex arc 8 with Michelin pss M3 carbon fiber hood Amuse carbon fiber trunk Mtech rear bumper with quad tips Tints all around Vinyled window trim Dtm style headlights M3 front bumper with cf lip Custom brake caliper covers INTERIOR: Black interior with sport seats i drive system carbon fiber wrapped interior trim *car has backup sensors as well Click the link for pics:http://s825.photobucket.com/user/serbball3r5/library/BMW%20335Car is ready for someone to take home, it is perfect for someone who wants to drop a motor into something that is ready to go with all supporting mods. Pm me or text 630-400-4363 if interested. Located in Chicago, IL. Price is $14,000 as I have well over $10,000 in mods alone! No low ballers please. Car is in perfect condition. Clean title, no accidents

    Yep. Thats why he did my bottom end and tuned it. I did the head. Crower cut us some cams after ditching the Schrick 296/288 13.5mm lift cams. If ~30whp, and ~20wtq across the whole rpm band is "barely anything" on the S54... myself and Stan may be chasing ghosts! Who wouldn't an NA I6 that whoops up on bolt on V8 S65's and revs like a dirtbike? Sounds a little like those forum "experts" that said you can't run 12:1, 14.5mm lift cams without neutering the dual vanos control on the s54. "Have fun with the VANOS block" they said... 395 285 SAE at 8200rpm on 91 pump at 150 miles on motor. Full vanos control. CSL box, MAP and Flap operation. stosh1 has driven it on the base tune. Reels in track setup s65s down the back straight (and several NA P cars)...over and over again. That delta may get a bit larger once both cats are removed, the 3.5" single is tested with proper fuel and another 500+ rpms added. Motor has 4k miles now. 41X 29X SAE may be possible if we can spin it deep into the 8's where these crower cams shine. With the stroker combos available today, you can go for extreme cubes (reduced rpm) or more cubes with a better R:S ratio than stock (albeit...barely) and a wider rod bearing that is much cheaper than the S54 bearing. I went with the latter. Balanced to 9k. Oil pressure for 9500 rpm (custom pump). Only holdup is supertech springs currently - 8200 rpm max with 14.5mm crower cams (new head on the way). Billet Crank after massaging from Marine (removed even more counterweight material) came back over 5lbs lighter than OEM and should last longer than the car...... unless SAAD or mert get a hold of it... :dance: The s54 progresses slowly... would be nice to get billet cams and billet followers for this platform so the turbo guys can keep pushing the limits and dispelling rumors. (No need to pay the VAC tax for a stroker crank. You can build a solid stroker for much cheaper today). I do think Stan and his buddy Dave have the two best stock rebuilds out there. HANDS DOWN! But there is more for the S54 (in NA and Turbo form) and some folks are pushing it and just not posting it. Cheers.

    Now I know this doesn't relate to N54 but have you guys seen this: https://www.wired.com/2011/01/900hp-bmw-ev-conversion-just-keeps-getting-better/ In this video the car seems to be dynoing around 500WHP, although the article above states that nearly being doubled. It's a pretty spectacular achievement. That this DIY electric matches some stage 2 N54 upgrades. When you think removing all the weight of the engine, transmission and turbo plumbing really does offer room for great improvements. You could say fuel as well but I suppose that's the batteries. I'd love to retrofit an electric engine(s) to my N54 to work along side the ICE. To fill in any areas of turbo lag and to push with the engine for greater acceleration. It must be possible to get alternators and capacitors to do this. I hate the dead feel of a pure electric. It has no sole like an ICE vehicle. Just like the people who drive them :awesome:

    To be fair, Schrick makes cams not tunes. It doesn't seem like there is anything inherently bad about these- they fit and spin and do cam things. No tuning solutions existed prior because nobody had cams. Now people do and solutions will come about, or not. To that racecar owner running PI with DI capped, or machining the head for solenoid injectors, these might work flawless. Also, don't judge by n=1 failure less than 24hrs after initial testing, give it a day at least!

    If Tony is right I do think it's pretty funny that the company with the highest priced cams in the history of the world is not testing them prior to selling them. Makes me laugh at the people who were riding Schrick's dick earlier in the thread.

    Maybe for most people. Not for us seeking big power though. It's pretty common to delete in high HP builds. I don't really give a shit about low end or mid range

    I honestly am not looking for your help. So thanks, but I am good. No one is crying about anything. I bought 2 sets sight unseen (show me someone else who has done that) installed the high lifts, they do not work, so I am taking them out. Annoying that Schrick did not test these in an actual car, yes, but my post is to warn others not to bother until its fixed. There is a reason multiple companies send me parts to test, because I am always on the bleeding edge, and do things before anyone else. If Shrick was not going to test these, they should have sent them to us for testing, not just shoved them on the public as a completed upgrade. I will most likely throw $3K worth of cams in a box until someone figures this out, then I will give them another shot. As for the sarcasm, suggesting I used the wrong cam seals, or scored up cam ledges on a closed deck race motor with $5K in the head alone will incite sarcasm every time. Cheers

    I don't remember it being that long ago that you said and now crying about being the guinea pig and bashing another company. I didn't mean to insult your intelligence by asking about the seals and ledges, but things do get overlooked and forgotten. hell some people would even see those grooves in the ledges and think its supposed to be there. Give me some slack and cut the sarcasm and attitude and I'll help you out.
