    • Dinan Built 600 horsepower S62 V8 tuned by Apex Speed Technology swapped into E36 M Coupe

      This is a quite an impressive build. Dinan built the S62 V8 with the One Lap of American in mind. Dusty Renteria of Dinan was the engine builder and he used Mahle pistons, billet crank, race spec cams, and Carillo rods. BB supporting vendor Vasavada of Apex Speed Technology did the tuning on the Pectel SQ6 ECU. Claimed power is 600 horses, but only a crank dyno has been supplied.

      Specs:

      - Dinan Built race spec BMW S62
      - Custom 3 ring lightweight composite Mahle pisons
      - Race spec camshafts, billet steel crankshaft, solid lifters, velocity stacks, Carillo rods, valve springs and valve retainers
      - Dry sump side mounted on oil pan
      - Engine management and traction control via Pectel SQ6 ECU

      Transmission and final drive:

      -TR2CD racing clutch by OS Giken
      -Super Lock LSD by OS Giken

      Cooling:

      -Two Setrab SET125 oil coolers
      - Dual PAss racing spec radiator

      Weight Saving:

      - Carbon Fiber hood saving about 55 lbs
      - Carbon Fiber roof saving about 40 lbs (from the original with sunroof)
      - Carbon Fiber front bumper cover with splitter and additional cooling ducts
      - Grand-Am spec Carbon Fiber rear wing by Crawford Composites
      - Carbon Fiber front and rear quarter panels

      Chassis and Wheels

      - CCW 18x9.5 and 18x 11 wheels
      - Michelin PS2 265/35/18 and 315/30/18 tires (1 lap requires street tires)
      - Rotora 6 piston 355x32 and 4 piston 330x34 brakes
      - TC Kline Double adjustable shocks and camber plates
