    OK cool. Lot of folks confuse the basic "perfect" balance of a inline 6 with what I'm talking about, which is a basic property of a cylindrical metal rod. You can go to stiffer crank material, but...

    It's not a matter of being balanced, it's a torsional (twisting) property of a piece of metal a certain length, having a resonance that may be undamped above 7200 rpm. The longer the crank the lower...

    No expert here by any means but when I looked into this some time ago the issue of high revs on inline six engines is limited by torsional modes of the crank itself, just due to its substantial...

    Classic. I did not know e46 M3's had that particular weakness.

    Yeah, mon. Not sure I want to know how much it costs but glad to hear it is being done.

    Sorry for a perhaps stupid question but does no one make a twin turbo kit for the M3 S65? I've only seen these supercharger dynos and similar, and of course you'll have limited boost at lower rpms...

    Personally I'd like a 1500HP X5M AWD drivetrain in a e92 M3, as long as we're day dreaming.

    LOL I figured I get a response like that from Sticky....besides BMW already beat us to it with the new M4.

    With progress on the N54 going the way it is, would not be surprised to see some dropped into M3's soon if that is feasible.

    10.6 sec 137 MPH turbo e36 M3 full interior, street tune. Come on guys. No need for VW's, a 20 year old (RWD) BMW can embarrass the N54.

    You might be right but it could be possible that up to now many/most singles have been too quirky and difficult to nail down in a day to day reliable sense. Something always blowing up/off, breaking...

    Hate to point out the obvious, but this whole thread was about something the two top N54 hybrid gurus were apparently unaware of, or looked at before things had jelled, and discarded. Then Ray P...

    This. I have been so close to pulling the trigger on several single kits last couple of years and whatever timing or serendipity, I would decide on something and open up a forum and suddenly...

    Maybe as simple as they got good results out of what they were doing and/or just flat out did not think of it, many other ongoing projects, got too busy in pissing contests on forums who knows. Plus...

    Probably a lot of folks feel this way, and the fact that RB and Vargas already have the hybrid market mostly sewn up between them, is why the guys that did this don't plan on selling. Plus it looks...

    Of course they can, I notice they did just that with the BMS OCC. I see copies of it all over eBay. My point is simply the PTF product isn't even available to the public yet, why hand out...

    Nothing patentable maybe but you don-t just hand out design-level drawings and rev history of your super cool new product to make potential customers feel good about it. If you spent months of R&D...
