    Being "new around these forums" I'm sure others will just wonder about quality. Anything you can share there on your past work experience/projects would be great to hear.

    I saw a brief bit about your ported head, but don't recall if it said who did the work?

    you're one of the N54 owners who has the most actual field knowledge on what's to gain on a modified head - is 1mm the most that can go over on the exhaust? or most there is to gain?

    would there be any room/gains on the intake side valve wise?

    Thanks for the response. Do you have flow numbers available yet? I'm not really in the market, just curious.
    Click here to enlarge these are pretty dang reasonable if you ask me. I dont put a "BMW" tax on BMW parts.... Its just what it costs me to bring this to market.

    No, we dont have flow numbers (yet)- we can flow a stock head if you want, and go from there Click here to enlarge

    I seriously have 30+ years of CUSTOM high performance engine building behind me at the machine shop I am partnered up with. i do ALL of my machine work with him on all of my engines. I have known him for 7+ years and trust him 100% on anything he tells me. We work great together and have a common goal- provide excellent work at a fair price.

    well- as much as it can handle- since we have seen Tony put 700+ to the ground on a stock internals (and previous 6 cylinders put out similar numbers on stock stuff before it launches) I would say this would push this platform over 1000 hp if you could feed it.
    The only thing I think that would be an additional extra idea- would be Oringing the cylinder head or block... but the floating block design may be the achilles heel of big stupid power levels.

    I for one HATE it when someone uses "pre order" money to finance the product. I will not do that. I do not mind financing my business, as long as someone has a reason to buy it Click here to enlarge

    for the head studs, will it be the full set that comes with the kit from BMW/vendors, or just a few of them (the bigger/longer 'important' bolts/studs)?

    These will be the a full set of studs for the head (little bolts x4 around the corners, and the main bolts down the head)

    strong(er) Pins? included? options?
    Of course, wrist pins come included and are performance pins from either manufacturer.
    When you order pistons, it comes with pistons/rings/pins.


    ring lands coating option? (or not a worry?

    That would be the custom coating that we make available for the pistons.

    either JE or wiseco superior to the other in any way?.. and being much cheaper than CP, having a read, seems they're at least the same quality too Click here to enlarge (as long as whatever i get won't fail before anything else at the power i want Click here to enlarge )

    I assure you either way you go (CP/JE/wiseco/etc) you are getting a QUALITY piston.
    I use JE or wiseco pistons exclusively in my own engines.

    aaand i assume they're the next size up from stock? (+.5mm or whatever?)

    Honestly, whatever you want. A custom piston is a custom piston.


    for $900+$200, that's hundreds off the price of CP's assuming there's no major additional option costs haha


    Can i just get a set sent to me and machined/installed here? haha

    If you want, I can. It makes no difference to me, but I cannot guarantee installation or competence from your local machine shop- the only thing I worry about...... I honestly do not want the bad press of someone taking these somewhere and them badmouthing myself or the product because they don't have the technology or skill to perform the job..... know what I mean?

    the cost of shipping a crank each way simply makes it not at all reasonable for anyone overseas for the most part (unless someone has a good contact for chap freight :/).

    I understand. Ill do what I can to help.

    $1500 inc bearings vs $1675+$150-$300 for carillo's. daym.

    I beams are stronger+ lighter than H-beam usually correct? (going by http://forums.corvetteforum.com/c3-t...beam-rods.html )



    head on the other hand, may well not be a bad idea to ship over stripped Click here to enlarge

    We can send you a fully done head, you send yours back (or pay the core)

    do you have any rough prices for upgraded valves/seals/retainers/guides/springs/ everything, if you're able to do that? (i for one, and extremely after it haha)

    I am working on that- Please bear with me.

    are springs even upgradeable? or are they really just strong enough that no one should ever worry about it? or too much of a PITA to get sourced/made?
    please see my replies-
    but yes we are working on it.

    The products themselves speak for quality. I don't need to boast on them.

    Myself,
    I'm a 13 year BMW technician, 10 year master BMW tech. ASE master tech.
    I worked in the dealer network for about 12 years. I was lead technician, highest paid tech, and highest flagging tech in the shop....... and recently have realized- I am not a corporate guy. It DRIVES ME NUTS having an idiot over me. If your gonna be my leader- DO IT. Don't talk it.
    I got fed up of the politics and BS, so I broke off and did my own thing. I own my business. I am the boss. I do what I want. Am I making as much as I was at the dealer? HELL NO lol (i was making 130-150K a year at the dealer).....
    *but* am I happy doing what I do?
    HELL YES Click here to enlarge

    I split the shop with the most talented body man in the United States- and I'm not joking-
    We get cars from all around the US and North America to get fixed. Exotics and VERY high profile cars come here to get repaired.

    Think of the most expensive cars you can imagine or find in the news that gets wrecked. Chances are they are sitting in our shop, or have been here to get fixed.


    We have an OEM ISTA, ISTA-p, autologic for BMW/mercedes/porsche/audi/VW, a fully equipped Lenardo and a bunch of other *neat* diagnosis and manipulation we have as well Click here to enlarge

    I enjoy doing things that are against the norm-
    turboing weird cars
    modifying things that shouldn't be Click here to enlarge
    I honestly enjoy modifying and customizing more than anything else. I came from the 4x4 world and lived next to the Rubicon, so its in my blood. Fabrication for me is hard and not nearly as clean as others who are ultra talented- but I truly love doing it. Its my passion (besides guns Click here to enlarge)

    I have a 98 BMW M3 (that currently is for sale!) that makes 640/720 on a mustang dyno. It MOVES OUT Click here to enlarge

    I have built a TON of BMW engines. I have installed TONSx2 of BMW engines.
    Go check out my facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/BMWdoctor) and poke around if you would like to see the type of cars and stuff we do Click here to enlarge

    AND PLEASE SHARE/LIKE MY PAGE! lol



    Lastly, Im also the seminar instructor and online diagnostic technician for Euro-Diagnostics. It is a private forum that about 250 independent shops subscribe to and need help. I fix their cars remotely, and if needed- fly out and fix them. I also fly around the US and do seminars for 10-15 shops at a time.

    So, I guess- If I didnt know my stuff, I would be ousted within minutes in front of 20-30 technicians who work on these cars for a living.


    and another thing-
    If I said "I'm good" you would think I'm boasting.
    If I said "I'm not good" you would know im bullshitting Click here to enlarge

    That's what i was thinking. these parts are.. well for pistons+ rods, excellently priced, especially compared to existing options. bang on with what you'd get on other 6cyl platforms... then the studs are normal, and the head work pricing is normal or better :/

    Flow numbers before+after on the first head you work on would be normal wouldn't it?

    Hahaha, I didn’t mean it quite like that.. more like for the rods, if you needed a large order to start off with, group buy style rather than development funding, as you already have the product sample evidently.

    That’s good to know though, gives good insight to how you run your business Click here to enlarge

    Pricing is bang on where I expected it though. No BMW tax Click here to enlarge.

    Awesome, thanks!.. so stronger than OEM is all i wanted to know Click here to enlarge

    That was a major complaint i foudn googling about CP pistons, their standard pins are a bit thin, and the stronger ones cost a bit when you get them for all 6 >_<... even better value prospect when you count the JE/Wiseco as coming with decent pins!

    Thanks! Reassurance is always good, had a few minutes reading mainly supraforums/nasioc, and there were good and bad for all manufacturers, but wiseco was pretty consistently rated as good as or better than the rest haha

    Yeah I understand. It’s hard to find a good shop locally (none participating online doesn’t help). Though I have managed to recently Click here to enlarge

    The only ‘forum’ shop in Australia is Advan, and they don’t plan on letting any of their ‘major’ (big turbo or etc.) kits be installed outside of their workshop. Which is, while understandable, doesn’t really make much long term business sense as long as you keep on top of it. It restricts your market INCREDIBLY.
    There’s almost always going to be some bad press, you just can’t let it get bigger than it is?

    Problem would still be the major shipping costs there and back (and potential customs issues, as Australian customs sucks when it comes to shipping around expensive items).. there are some really reputable machine shops both in my city/in other capital cities that I’d have to look into first, sorta same deal with the crank. Were I in the states, no brainer haha.

    Seriously, again, massive thanks, it's like you read my mind. literally every part i wanted for my build (that i've thought of) is coming out from you right when i was starting to look for them.

    I mean. wow.

    I'm interested in the flow bench figures.
    Do you have any plans for N55? It could use some forged rods.

    Great prices and you seem knowledgeable. I think I have a new shop to recommend over M Power in Houston now, wasn't impressed the last few visits there. Do you guys do other stuff or just machine/engine work?

    Exhaust only. Intake valves have no room for larger upgrades..
    I didn't see any pics of the port work, just pics of the tear down and graphs of the gains. Do you have any pics floating around anywhere, and was the work done on a cnc machine, hand p&p, both?

    No, we dont have flow numbers (yet)- we can flow a stock head if you want, and go from there Click here to enlarge

    I seriously have 30+ years of CUSTOM high performance engine building behind me at the machine shop I am partnered up with. i do ALL of my machine work with him on all of my engines. I have known him for 7+ years and trust him 100% on anything he tells me. We work great together and have a common goal- provide excellent work at a fair price.




    well- as much as it can handle- since we have seen Tony put 700+ to the ground on a stock internals (and previous 6 cylinders put out similar numbers on stock stuff before it launches) I would say this would push this platform over 1000 hp if you could feed it.
    The only thing I think that would be an additional extra idea- would be Oringing the cylinder head or block... but the floating block design may be the achilles heel of big stupid power levels.



    please see my replies-
    but yes we are working on it.

    The products themselves speak for quality. I don't need to boast on them.

    Myself,
    I'm a 13 year BMW technician, 10 year master BMW tech. ASE master tech.
    I worked in the dealer network for about 12 years. I was lead technician, highest paid tech, and highest flagging tech in the shop....... and recently have realized- I am not a corporate guy. It DRIVES ME NUTS having an idiot over me. If your gonna be my leader- DO IT. Don't talk it.
    I got fed up of the politics and BS, so I broke off and did my own thing. I own my business. I am the boss. I do what I want. Am I making as much as I was at the dealer? HELL NO lol (i was making 130-150K a year at the dealer).....
    *but* am I happy doing what I do?
    HELL YES Click here to enlarge

    I split the shop with the most talented body man in the United States- and I'm not joking-
    We get cars from all around the US and North America to get fixed. Exotics and VERY high profile cars come here to get repaired.

    Think of the most expensive cars you can imagine or find in the news that gets wrecked. Chances are they are sitting in our shop, or have been here to get fixed.


    We have an OEM ISTA, ISTA-p, autologic for BMW/mercedes/porsche/audi/VW, a fully equipped Lenardo and a bunch of other *neat* diagnosis and manipulation we have as well Click here to enlarge

    I enjoy doing things that are against the norm-
    turboing weird cars
    modifying things that shouldn't be Click here to enlarge
    I honestly enjoy modifying and customizing more than anything else. I came from the 4x4 world and lived next to the Rubicon, so its in my blood. Fabrication for me is hard and not nearly as clean as others who are ultra talented- but I truly love doing it. Its my passion (besides guns Click here to enlarge)

    I have a 98 BMW M3 (that currently is for sale!) that makes 640/720 on a mustang dyno. It MOVES OUT Click here to enlarge

    I have built a TON of BMW engines. I have installed TONSx2 of BMW engines.
    Go check out my facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/BMWdoctor) and poke around if you would like to see the type of cars and stuff we do Click here to enlarge

    AND PLEASE SHARE/LIKE MY PAGE! lol



    Lastly, Im also the seminar instructor and online diagnostic technician for Euro-Diagnostics. It is a private forum that about 250 independent shops subscribe to and need help. I fix their cars remotely, and if needed- fly out and fix them. I also fly around the US and do seminars for 10-15 shops at a time.

    So, I guess- If I didnt know my stuff, I would be ousted within minutes in front of 20-30 technicians who work on these cars for a living.


    and another thing-
    If I said "I'm good" you would think I'm boasting.
    If I said "I'm not good" you would know im bullshitting Click here to enlarge




    phew- lets do some baby steps first!
    Alex, if you upgrading n54 engine above 500HP, i strongly recommend to choke the cylinders, for example, like we did at my engine. Otherwise, good luck for you business, i really approciate your efforts and ideas. On the other hand, if you are building motors, you may should consider of using ceramic coatings as well. Engine rebuilt, ported heads, upgraded turbos, ceramic coatings and nitrited stuff and many other interesting things on my post as well:

    During our cylinder head porting we have already shaped the factory valves (exhaust and intake) a little bit to provide better flow :-)

    Prices are spot on and very reasonable. 1k WHP will never be a cheap goal to shoot for.

    There is a difference between going larger valves and doing multi-angle valve jobs.
