    S50 build

    This is for all you guys who dont venture into the M3 section and follow my build. I recently took my car to the shop to have it corner balanced and it turned into a little something more. Turns out I had a blown head gasket, so the head had to come off. I figured this was a good time to redo the head and squeeze out some extra power. Hoping for close to 260whp.

    Here is a list of mods going on the car:

    Epic motorsports tune
    Sunbelt stage 2 cams
    Supertech valve springs
    Polished head
    New retainers
    VAC multilayer head gasket



    Existing mods include:

    AA race headers
    Bimmerworld intake boot
    Euro 3.5" HFM
    Upgraded cooling system
    Custom intake
    3" catless exhaust



    Onto the pictures

    So the stock head is off, taken apart, and sent out for inspection. It should be back next week and then the car will be coming back together pretty quickly. Just thought I would give you all a little update on what is going to be done to the car while the head is off.


    Here are the stock cams and trays.

    New 24 lb injectors. These will be a nice upgrade since I was running the stock 17.5 lb injectors before. They should meet the fuel requirement demanded by the cams and tune.

    I'm also going to be running supertech valve springs to aid in preventing damage incase of a mis-shift.

    Here are the sunbelt stage 2 cams. I haven't come across too many people running them, but they should make decent power. Hopefully I can get it on the dyno this month. I also had the valve cover sand blasted and powder coated black.

    I ordered an Epic Motorsports tune specific to my new mods. This car is going to be FAST.

    Hoping for 255-260whp. The 227whp was with only the Euro HFM, intake, and conforti tune.

    I believe you should easily hit 260whp with a the tuning right.

    Well they are one of the best in the country for S54 swaps, 1M tuning, and E46 tuning. They also do the OBD2 sunbelt tunes for Bimmerworld. They were actually the first to tune a 1M.

    Not sure what you are paying, but I would have gone with my tuner over them in a heart beat. Unless they were free. Click here to enlarge

    I got a good deal on this one. If the numbers aren't satisfactory, I will have Jordan dyno tune it.
