        Gave you an article on the front page, thanks for sharing your ride with us.

        We are anxious to see the head build process and the new dyno graph. Unfortunate that happened today but at least you seem to have a smile about rebuilding it bigger and stronger.

        ahh Freeking awesome !! thx man Click here to enlarge

        i will post all the pics i take, will take some more for you guys Click here to enlarge

        the bottom end is built for 1000hp but i wont go there.. in some way i know that 1k hp isent street executable anymore. the most fun i have on the streets and track today is @ 1bar and thats just 420whp.

        Probably i will put some bigger valves in and port the intake and exhaust ports..

        but i will update you guys when i start with the mods

        just took the head of 2h ago.

        and all iv seen so far is the water bubbling up underneath the cam

        this is underneath the 6cyl rockers (just plain oil)
        Click here to enlarge

        and this underneath 5cyl rockers..
        Click here to enlarge

        i did lift the valve cover off when it still was warm so there were some pressure in the water system.. and these small bubbles was coming out underneath the cam.

        i will tear apart the head tomorow and investigate more.

        now im off to beed.

        This is one of the most worthy Bimmerboost posts ever. Thank you for joining and your contribution! I can't wait till the day that I put together my own I6.. This motor seems very stout and makes 700+whp WITHOUT revving the snot out of it, awesome.

        I love your torque plateau. Click here to enlarge

        They will do just fine. Now I can go to bed dreaming about e30s. You ever think about e30m style widebody. Look up BMWSOB you'll like his ride another 9sec e30.

        ahh i see.. well i guess that Hpf got some employees that need wages and its the same here in sweden so what why i decided to do all of the work by my self.

        What kind of bmw are building now?

        and what is the BMWSOB i havent seen it. i THINK Click here to enlarge

        Ah i found the BMWSOB, what engine are they running?

        i have a friend with a e30 an s50 engine that ran 9.25 looks almost the same as the BMWSOB.

        / karel

        ps.. i have thought of an m style body but i think if it should be m it should be M all the way, just putting m rear fenders or front fenders wont do it.

        i should be the hole package..

        the way i widend the body looks cleaner (my thinking) and its 6cm wider on each side

        I feel the same way and the more time I spend with BMW the more I like the older and older models. I'm actually starting to get into the E21 big time, E28, E9, 2002, all of them.
