I can understand how that would be confusing, the build plan has changed a lot since post #46.
The other thing is that this head has been decked twice, so CR will be marginally higher. Maybe...

See post #46.
I have spent substantial amounts of time writing about what I'm doing....

You probably already know this, but the OEM exhaust manifolds aren't the same shape as the exhaust ports.
05-23-2013, 12:23 PM
Good info, thanks for sharing that.
But....there is a marked difference between the M5X/S52 exhaust port, and the M54 exhaust port. The M54 port is smaller, and shaped slightly different. When you...

Just curious if you had the exhaust scanned as well.
I would think that if someone is looking to fabricate their own M54 intake, that they would be doing the exhaust as well.
I would be...

For me, the only comparison that counts is the one I make between what my expectations are, and what the actual result is. Comparing cars, where the expectations of of the owners is vastly...

HPF offered this a while ago, and sold ZERO kits.

Yes, I like nitrous.
I'm trying really hard to have the engine started within 2 weeks. After that, it's just a few things to get it officially on the road.

Nah...I've set limits on what I can touch. The next car will be much more radical...
The one pictured above is the engine oil cooler.
The Trans cooler will be mounted under the bumper.

Still re-doing stuff that didn't work.
The -10 AN turbo drain line ended up getting sandwiched between the oil pan and the steering rack. More specifically, the fitting right off the scavenge...

One not so fun thing: I've sent my camera and main lens to Nikon for service. I realize that 6 years isn't that long for a Pro DSLR to be in use, but I've absolutely hammered mine carrying it around...

I should call you! Been way too long...

In the shop for the next month. :D

I appreciate what you've done, but I haven't been using it. This is partly due to the really flakey nature of the internet connections I use, and my lack of serious content creation...
Sorry to step in here, but I'm the only one that I know of to take a high-end road race suspension (Moton) to the drag strip, and adapt it for use there.
You can set it up for...
I missed that, sorry.
Just the same, incredible numbers for a 2.5L.
So will you spend another day on the dyno sorting out those issues, or is the engine already out of the room?
05-09-2013, 01:07 PM
This is just a presumption, but from my experience with other control units, there is usually a maximum allowable error for certain parameters.
I wonder if the total clutch package thickness might...
What tires were you using on the dyno?

I think this is ridiculous, all of it.
There will never be a truthful side to this debacle, because so many chefs have been in the kitchen.
My experience with technical issues in general is...

M54: I think it's random.
I think it's random.
I've found some M54 cylinder heads have 4 studs per exhaust port, and some have 3 in an odd pattern across the head. The part numbers are also different.
Would I drill out a head...
