    same as lhd. If you're mounting the turbo that low, you'll need a scavenge pump. It's nice to have the pump sit low as well. But the water lines don't change at all, neither do oil lines, turbo is...

    Crazy runs! Dang, HPF finally serious about a motorsport. This should give way to awesome new products.

    Is this Fallon driving? iirc, it was her car?



    It splits the turbine housing into two...

    From where I am, it doesn't look simple. I don't want to do that- because that's a job I'd prefer to avoid. The results are sick.

    You even have the sturdier aluminum ps bracket. I think you would...

    nice brackets!

    i can't believe that even when they go to fancy carbon rotors, still leave lever calipers in the rear... omg, bmw you did it more right in the 1 series nonM

    n55 makes more sense if bottom end torque and response is the desire, but if you want absurdity, the m54 is more modular as far as turbos and injectors go.

    poop came out of your mouth, you should delete it so someone doesn't read it and misunderstand. If you need it explained, send me a PM.



    Don't try. It's more hardcore than it just doesn't line...

    No matter what happens, if BMW makes a v6, it will positively not be a 90' v6. Is the valley big enough in a 60' v6? bmw could probably just make it work. But 4 cams for not enough displacement, two...

    While by all means not a bad idea conceptually, it's much easier to look in places like the intercooler for pooling. The bearings are not in question here, just the seals.

    Though, iirc, there is a...

    if you blew the turbo, it probably has nothing to do with the chipotle incident. Do you spend millions of dollars on underwear? how do you deal with it?

    the only contingency is fitment, which is dependent on chassis. But even then, given what I've assumed about the power level, i would try to make an iron manifold fit.

    I think NickG stage 1 would be the best call for this. Many miles and smiles later, when the engine dies of old age or whatnot, then consider a build. Nick will include tuning for his kit. This is a...

    Ben, if you want flanges, I think you need to find someone with a cnc plasma table. And make a simple vector file.
    There used to be a reliable source of wide port m5x style flanges, but I think he...

    if i could afford either this or an m5, i'd still need the m5... sadly, it isn't the case. Unfortunately, I can't access this market

    damn
    that looks so good.
    the welds, the gaps

    I hate to admit that it's not horribly heavy, but it's actually reasonable weight. Or maybe it is heavy and you're just not a 200+ fatass like me.

    I think, overestimate on the power. But who...

    i would not have guessed that a 4" pipe would fit there so easily. That's awesome, there's even room to spare.

    you can clearly see the cross at 5250 on both charts, at which point Chad's car is making around 100whp and torque more. Crosses north of 700whp around 5300rpm, compared with 61-6200. Kisses...

    sometimes one has to spend a lot to find answers. I know i spent more than an HPF built engine setup delivers. I make less power. I will not be trapping 136+. 133, maybe. But I do have a wider...

    I enjoy reading the more emotional Sticky. Advocate of the deprived American enthusiast. I've been a diesel fanboy for ages; before BMWs, I drove a w126 300sd, w123 300td, and a w123 240d. M diesel...

    All the experiments that VF did with the thicker hg on the s54 seemed to fail for one reason or another. I dunno. IIRC there was an issue with the chain in that timing system. The s50b32 has...
