    This is absolutely absurd. They owe something to the same community that pisses on them constantly? They are the ones who put in the time and research resolving this issue and should what, just give everything away to satisfy your curiosity? They are running a business not a charity.

    It isn't some huge secret. It's when the heads lift on a built motors. Nobody else has to worry about this.

    It shows inexperience because they were the first ones to actually solve this? Ok that makes sense. Others are just now getting to this.

    Do you know where the S65 heads lift? No. Has anyone mentioned this before? No. VAC just built an S65 as well.

    Making an absurd claim like inexperience when only one company has a YSI working on the car is idiotic. Everyone else is trailing and then some.

    My particular car is different than the car that already was running the YSI setup and putting out way more HP than anyone else: http://www.bimmerboost.com/content.p...I-supercharger

    Anyone could have run that car but nobody wanted to, no surprise.

    My car is not a manual and the DCT build complicated matters. We will see if it will be ready but regardless it will be done at some point. When that point is, I'll be sure to run whomever wants to but all the other setups will run away scared as usual so they can maintain their illusion of superior design.

    It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out a built motor setup with a YSI is going to beat any other M3 setup out there as nobody else is running this large of a blower.

    Don't stir the pot Kenton. I feel for Sticky.. his cars been down for a while. I can also understand why competitors hold secrets so close. If everyone was open we'd all benefit.. but if one person holds secrets the others are then forced to.. its a shame really. Its not like China is making knock off Turbo kits for 1/4 of the price.. we don't need to be so secretive.. other shops will run into the same issues and will eventually resolve them as well.. meanwhile customers are now afraid of boosting their E92's as a whole.. in the end it really hurts the industry as a whole more than it helps it.

    I don't think people really even understand this issue.

    Head studs won't be a problem for anyone with a boost M3 on the stock motor. It's only when built and even then when going big boost that it matters.
