    Stock head studs are M10. We had custom head studs made to our specifications good for up 50+lbs of boost which we might not see anytime soon, but we prefer to be safe than sorry. Ring gaping all depends on our customers driving habits. We have a formula and spec we have been using and will continue to use on 90% of our stage 3 builds, which is basically good for street, tracking and daily driving. However, Paul Walkers car does have a slightly different ring gap, this is because his M3 is a dedicated track car. Unfortunately, we can not give exact details on our head studs or our ring gap numbers.

    Raz,

    I really like the work you've shown being done, and have enjoyed reading about the technical specifications of the parts being involved.

    I don't need to know the #s, and I suspect that doesn't really mean much to the general enthusiast reading this, but I do appreciate how you list the changes you've made, and why.

    Please continue updating this excellent thread.

    Raz, since this is being assembled, does that mean you figured out a solution for the oiling issue with #4,#8 and the main bearing?

    Now that's what I'm talking about!

    No room to go bigger than a YSI though, right?

    Well maybe but it depends on how much bigger. We are already running really tight with a YSI. We might be able to free up a little more room (and I mean very little) but that would mean modifying other engine components.
