    yes you are correct, but there is a chance of failure (SC bearing going bad etc) and if that happens on his car we will surely get a video.

    I do my own detail work (used to work for a shop in HS) but am curious of this. I used the Wolfgang 3.0 sealant and am very impressed with the results, it's not ceramic though. What's a good ceramic product? I've found that a clay bar, the Menzerna FG 400 (to remove heavy scratches/rubs) then Menzerna FF 3000 to polish and then the wolfgang I am left with a car that looks near new and it's an 08 335. I just use the FF 3000 every 6 months and then the wolfgang, the FG 400 is heavy and I use it in spots as needed now. I use the cheap harbor freight orbital with meguiar's micro fiber pads for the FF and FG and then a meguiar's blue/black foam for applying the wolfgang.

    is the Castrol 5-30 full syn the recommended oil now? I was running the 0-40 this last change and it sure used more oil than normal. I think the 0w might be a bit too thin?

    Hey Guys, I've started accumulating parts to put together the next heart for my E34 540i/6. I've given myself a stringent $2k U.S. budget to get together the engine I've had in mind. An M62B44 bottom end, M60B40 heads & cams. Jaguar Eaton M112 running low boost. As is the M60 heads on the M62 produces roughly 10.94-11:1 static CR. I live at 6kft elevation and want to treat the SC as elevation compensation, yet maintain the higher compression of the engine for low end fun. My plan is spin the Eaton at a 1.38:1 ratio by way of a 4" pulley; by my calcs that will yield close to a 3.5psi boost. At my elevation I already lose 2.9psi of atmospheric pressure (generalized). Picked up the shortblock, M62 4.4L non-vanos: Also have the Jag Eaton M112, ready for clean up and rebuild. A complete M60B40 engine assembly is being shipped in order to rob the heads, cams, dual chain timing set up and timing covers. So far my tally adds up to ($US): M62 short block - $250.00 local pickup M60B40 complete - $463.25 shipped Complete SC assembly with intercoolers, inlet & outlet duct - $410.00 shipped Jag lower intake manifolds with injectors & fuel rails - $156.20 4" SC pulley - $80 Total: $1,359.45, leaving $640.55 in the budget. Other known expenses; Jag lower manifolds to BMW V8 heads adapter plates, blower mounts & belt idler kit. Head gaskets, SC gaskets, SC rebuild kit & oil, other engine gaskets. A few techie questions: A) Where can I find the SC to BMW V8 adapters? B) Running such low boost & slower rotor RPM is it still necessary to run the boost bypass on idle, high manifold vacuum cruise & decel? Could I get away with blocking the bypass and still manage IAT's? The water to air intercoolers will be hooked up and using a heat exchanger up front with an electric water pump. C) As is, on my M62 short block the pistons sit .033" (.84mm) above deck. Victor Reinz offers MLS head gaskets for my application with a 1.74mm (.069") or 2.07mm (.081"). Giving my build either an .036" (.91mm) squish/quench or with the thicker head gasket a .048" (1.22mm) squish/quench. The difference between the two head gasket thicknesses translates to roughly .5 of a full compression bump. I was going to wait to CC the head chambers before making a decision on HG thickness, but in this application do you think it would be better to run higher static CR with tighter quench or slightly lower CR with less quench? D) If I don't need to retard intake cam I wasn't planning it, in fact I was thinking the overlap boost bleed could help keep cylinder pressures down. Unless it would be a good idea to lower DCR with a retard intake closing angle. By my calcs going from the O.E 109 ICL to 120 ICL delivers a smooth power & torque curve in boost but could really make the engine doggy in boost bypass (if I need to run one). Other parts already in my build: Coils & E46 M3 3.62:1 limited slip 210mm center section. MAFT-Pro piggyback speed density conversion that allows for up to 3bar of boost management. Ostrich 2.0" chip emulator running the original Bosch Motronic M3.3 with custom .BINs Vac/Boost reference FPR, 3 bar MAP. S65 exhaust manifolds, not a direct bolt on but I've got a plan:

    I'm here to source parts and learn all I can, also perhaps share some knowledge along the way: E34 540i/6 M62 4.4L non-vanos short block M60B40 heads & cams w/ double chain timing set up Jaguar Eaton M112, intercoolers & induction Boost & fuel management by way of Maft-pro piggy back. Engine management and controlling by way of OE Bosch Motronic M3.3 utilizing an Ostrich 2.0 and custom tuned .bins

    Car forums are a dirty business. Or at least, they can be. In MBWorld's case, dirty hardly covers it. This is the same forum that had such extreme corruption in the past regarding EVOSPORT it led to the rise of BenzBoost.com. Some things never change. MBWorld is deleting threads regarding the Dime Racing fiasco. Don't take our word for it. The owner of the most recent Dime Racing Huracan problem car tried to go on MBWorld to warn AMG owners of doing business with Dime. He was quickly silenced: Now why would a forum silence someone who is sharing their horror story with a tuner in order to spare others from the same fate? What is the point of forums? Well, that is where things get tricky. MBWorld isn't the only forum that has vendors try to pull strings to keep negative stories off the site. Tony Vargas of Vargas Turbocharger Technologies infamy recently tried the same thing here only to be to told the thread would not be deleted. This is what some of the shady vendors do. They threaten to pull sponsorship unless negative threads are deleted. MBWorld is owned by Internet Brands which makes $100 million dollars a year. They can afford to show a vendor the door. The fact they do not highlights just how bad the situation is. From @Z-Tuned: "Sticky - just an FYI, MBWorld has been deleting posts about this on their forums and censoring members who talk about it because they are being paid by Dime through advertising. They're claiming there are "two sides to every story", but I find this infuriating. https://mbworld.org/forums/c63-c63s-...d-removed.html Having gone through a lengthy legal battle myself with an Audi/VW tuner many years ago, I can relate to the pain of being screwed by a shop during a big money build. MBWorld is already basically a dead forum, but the fact that they continue to censor members about Dime's fraud is disgusting." It is exemplified by corrupt moderators who often will favor a vendor for free parts or simply to score brownie points. The moderators are not paid. To cover up serious problems with a tuner in order to remain in an unpaid position to abuse power on internet forums is pathetic. What kind of grown ass man does that? Well, a moderator by the name of nlpamg or Philip Nulud cares so much about his token moderator position MBWorld users tell BoostAddict he is allegedly willing to help remove negative Dime posts: There are plenty of Dime horror stories that have been deleted and covered up. This is only the latest. If someone ends up losing tens of thousands of dollars due to this shouldn't a forum or moderator potentially engaging in a coverup be liable to a certain degree? BoostAddict will not cover this story up. We stand with Brian McLevis and others that have been taken advantage of by Dime Racing. MBWorld should be ashamed.

    Almost 138 miles per hour on the stock F10 M5 S63TU turbochargers? Wow! This is the same F10 M5 that previously went 135 miles per hour in the 1/4 mile. The owner went back to the strip and managed a better launch with a 1.976 60 foot. There still is plenty of room to improve that short time but the 1/4 mile result was 10.88 @ 137.80. Yes, still on pump gas. Obviously water-meth injection is making a big difference and the HCP tune sure seems solid: HCP Tune (still on pumpgas map) 3.5 bar sensors Catless dp Upgraded DCT clutches Upgraded Axles (broke OEM) WMI
