    • A look at BPC's 1500+ hp capable built S63TU V8 engine package with Darton sleeves, Carillo rods, forged pistons, etc.

      The built motor era for the S63TU engine platform is getting going thanks to BPC (Bimmer Performance Center). They have a built engine package with some impressive specs that will increase the durability and capability of the S63TU 4.4 liter twin turbo V8.


      Those looking into this package will be people pushing the motor with turbo upgrades. When over 700 lb-ft of torque at the wheels, peace of mind becomes increasingly important:

      The development of this package began with our customer Ruben’s quest for more power. After Ruben’s rod failure at 700 ft. lbs. of torque, we were left with two options. The first option would have been to decrease the power output and replace the engine with a remanufactured unit, or to take on the task of developing the S63TU engine internals suitable for four digit power. We partnered with one of the most state of the art machining facilities in the country, as well as industry leading engine component manufacturers. Together our years of factory BMW knowledge and race engine experience has enabled us to take the M5 platform to another level.
      Some engines will last longer. Some engines will not. There are many factors such as fuel quality, torque, use, mileage, tune quality, etc. If you drive around town with a turbo upgrade getting groceries it is not exactly the same thing as going WOT on the roadcourse for hours of laps.

      This is the list of upgraded components:

      • BPC Spec Darton Flanged Sleeves – Optimized wall thickness for strength that far exceeds factory Alusil cylinders without compromising block integrity or cooling characteristics
      • BPC Spec Carrillo H-Beam Rods – Rated at 1500 HP
      • BPC Spec Diamond Coated Pistons – Thermal coated crown and teflon coated skirts.
      • BPC Spec Total Seal Stainless Steel Piston Rings
      • BPC Spec Calico Coated Main & Rod Bearings
      • BPC Spec spark plugs

      They also offer these services:

      Engine Block
      • CNC Bore & Hone Process
      • CNC Main Bearing Line Hone
      • BPC Spec Optimized Engine clearances
      • Precision Balanced Rotating Assembly

      Cylinder Head
      • BPC Spec Ported Cylinder Heads
      • BPC Spec Valve seat machining
      • CNC Cylinder Head Resurfacing

      Now, combining a built motor setup like this with a turbo upgrade is key. We saw the BPC built S63TU motor with their Borg Warner EFR 7163 turbo upgrade put out 846 horsepower to the wheels in an F10 M5 with preliminary tuning. They are shooting for over 1000+ and that is really where the upgraded engine components will be put to the test.

      How much does this all cost? Well, they didn't tell us. Expect to pay to play.

      The S63TU platform is poised to have a very big 2017.

        Our immediate goal is 1000WHP. Once we crack the 1000 mark we will reassess from there.

        we hope so too, We have been working on the S63TU platform for over a year now. It has been a long, tedious road but we are finally making strides and it feels great! Just hoping to give back to the community as im sure everyone wants to see the S63TU platform grow.

        They sure did. I'm thinking about making an article on that alone.

        @mmmcookies335 do you have any more pics of the bent rods and the busted S63TU for me?

        This needs to happen to the next gen M5 with AWD so you can make full use of the horsepower potential...

        Well, it's on hold for a few days until we get the Transmission sorted out. We were running SSP clutches in and over the weekend started getting trans slippage codes. Looking further into it now, will update when we figure out whats going on!
