    Great info about the rod angle and length. Makes so much sense the way he stated it for me. Thanks @bdtsulev I wish I can rep you more.

    As stated things had to be redone. Whether you lose interest or not is not what's important.

    There you go, it's all about the angular movement.

    Exactly, going to be way cool especially once it's all laid out. Just a process and fun development to see what it takes to do and make it work. I don't know why people don't appreciate the time and effort instead of demanding results as if I don't want my car back myself.

It's these enthusiasts that we can thank for taking cars like the Supra, E46 M3, Gallardo + Vipers from their tame stock power levels, to 1.5k-2.k+ WHP monsters. There's no need to be a negative $#@!ing nancy and just $#@! on Sticky (or anybody's) build thread when they're pushing their cars and the motor into unknown territories; they're doing a favor for the community & you should never want to see any vendor fail.
    This. Ditching the S65 to build a GTR isn't the answer for building big HP M3's.

    Even other motors have growing pains as well. It's a process and the GTR didn't make it overnight either.

    Sorry to hear about the challenges with the sleeves and block. Here's hoping they get it sorted and you are back on the road.

    Not sure if you know, but what power levels has VAC hit with their sleeved s65's?

    Exactly...there are too many people out there who even think that one should just try to build upon an existing kit to try to get the most out of an M3...the same logic would mean that is as far as an e92 M3 will get. If tuners never tried to build a turbo setup, insane transmission setups to handle big power, etc. we wouldn't have the huge power cars we do today. This also takes customer demand and sacrifice as they need to start somewhere! People should appreciate any member of the community who is willing to be without their car for such a long period of time. They could easily be driving around their car and just wait for someone else to do it so they can buy the same kit and be without their car for days opposed to potentially years.

    Innovation requires sacrifice.

    If I was doing this, I would be changing one part at a time, then moving onto the next component to avoid compound clearance issues. This takes time....

    You're one of the few people who understands, appreciates, and doesn't criticize.

    You have a wonderful build thread that obviously is time consuming with a lot of engineering and money involved yet people appreciate the project. But since I'm me I get baseless criticism instead.

    We all want to see your car run Sticky, but I truly hope you are being sarcastic on that last point.

    If I never knew about this thread and just happened across it after the build was finished I would haven't have thought twice about the time period.

    Thats what happened with the two other build threads I came across (George smooth's merc and the rx7 chassis)

    I am really intrigued to see how your DCT build turns out. I like the technology even though I am still a 6MT guy. The ceiling is high.

    That's very kind of you.

    While I may have the ability to bury people in technical criticism, I haven't found it does anything to help a situation. In fact, I've found it can backfire rather spectacularly, and move people further away from solutions.

    Guess we won't see a teaser until 2014-2015.

    I'm sure this has been asked and could be difficult to answer, but an ETA based on the above comment?

    My 335i rebuilt has started two years ago. The development of the engine and a new in-house developed twin turbo system itself took almost one year and we still need a few months to complete. In my opinion, sometimes, it is not about huge HP, but it is more about the path that you walk to the increased HP. So all my credit should go to Sticky. On the other hand i am also working on my e93 M3 with a slightly modified engine and exhaust system, but we stay with the NA engine at this time.
