    We're talking bolt on 10 second performance. No internal modifications, no crazy fuels or meth required, just simply a basic Vortech blower.

    And people call the car 'weak'...

    I know... It's relatively simple compared to some platforms

    Plus the car is still fun to drive, still handles well, and you aren't overwhelming the chassis. The power is there up top if you need it and around town you aren't spinning your tires everywhere you go. There is not some huge amount of torque to break parts. It's honestly taking everything about the power delivery and just putting it on steroids.

    The only downside in my opinion is the throttle response.

    Excellent run. I was reading up some more info on the rod bearings that's constantly flooding in on another forum. @Sticky, you said BMW solved that in the later models. There are 2011 models as well with the same issues happening. I don't want to be a debbie downer when it comes to the S65 at all but that stuff just doesn't sound good at all.

    BMW did but people who didn't get the new bearings will obviously have the old ones. My recommendation is for someone to check with their dealer as to exactly what bearings they have and I highly recommend simply getting the VAC bearings to have peace of mind. VAC has a maintenance kit that fixes BMW's typical cheap ass mistakes: http://www.bimmerboost.com/content.p...il-pan-baffle)

    I wouldn't call replacing rod bearings a "simple" task. nor cheap.

    It was a simple recommendation. I didn't state it was cost effective. But it's far more cost effective than a new motor right?

    $800 for rod bolts and bearings plus labor...if you're not pulling the motor out, doing everything from the bottom, i'm guessing 10-12 hours? @Mike@VAC...what's the labour like to replace them on the S65?

    Maybe throw in the oil pan baffle while you're at it as well...

    Is there any concerns with the supercharger belt adding stress on the crank and associated hardware?

    Sure, but the S65 isn't just bolt on a SC and run 10s though. Well it is until you spin a rod bearing and need $10k to rebuild the motor.

    It depends whose design you go with. Tightie made a great post on design differences in this respect between certain kits but it was deleted looks like... typical.

    Were talking about the e92 platform.. Going off topic, certain cars its just not impressive.. W211 e55 , pdk 911 turbo, 6 spd manual 911 turbo awd, gtr, supercharged dct e92's.. Its not dct vs 6 spd comparison as you are making it seem. I just believe it's impressive when these cars hit 9's

    Something like hitting 10's in a 6 spd manual e46 m3 with a bolt on turbo kit,race gas and slicks. no launch control, no traction control, stock suspension. Just plain skill and practice in shifting n launching. Many other examples out there, I'm just using this one. It took years for anyone to achieve 10's.. Only one person came close which was a hpf stg 2 smg e46 m3.. He hit 11.1... So far i only know 3 people who hit 10's in the e46. Dude from over seas, marcus with hpf/pro efi set up and mike from maximum psi

    To answer your question No. An AWD 6spd manual gtr will not be impressive. It would be expected

    It is bolt on and run 10's, why not? If you didn't get BMW's updated bearings that is on you or your dealer. You need to have a bit of common sense and due diligence does not hurt.

    Ok I'll work on the 9's for you in particular. 10's apparently are no longer impressive these days because... well, you said so. We're talking performance on a level of a PDK Turbo which costs what? And you're doing it with a four door that is far sportier and more fun to drive than any other four door I can think of.

    Yes nostalgia regarding the 6-speed manual is great but it's 2013 and there are higher performance options. If we're discussing performance, which we are, might as well go with the best option to get performance on the platform which in this case is the DCT. For those who don't mind a few tenths here or there, there is the choice of the 6-speed manual.

    The E92 is a superior drag platform to the E46. Look at how quickly it got into the 10's and the power level it is doing it with compared to the E46 M3.

    When you say its on the dealer, you mean if your motor goes within warranty they get to replace it?

    Agreed. DCT though with launch control is a HUGE part of it.

    What I'm really anxiously awaiting to see is the S55 manual cars with their new anti-lag setups and launch control. It might give the 6MT driver a fighting chance again Click here to enlarge

    They have to if it's within the warranty period. I also mean a dealer should update the bearings and you can have a dealer do this of course.

    I doubt it the DCT will be the quickest with the M3/M4 especially considering there will be less loss of boost in between shifts but the 6MT will be the most fun.

    Properly equipped shops with properly trained technicians who have experience with BMW engines (prior s65 experience strongly advised) typically charge $2-2500 labor depending on their market.

    Yep, 1SICKM beat our 93 octane/620 pulley-tune 10.69 run last year. to be fair, the records belong to the car owners, not the SC kit suppliers ;-)

    We wanted to go back to the track on 93 and 620 pulley as we thought we could break into the .50s THEN run a smaller '650' pulley and tune but that never happened...I guess there is still time this year - with trade show season being here its hard to catch a free minute!

    Like I said not everybody has the same design in this respect. Some people took this into account.

    @Mike@VAC how difficult is it to integrate a dry sump setup with an SC? I may want to go after some roadcourse records (like the ring, seriously) so maybe we can work something out.

    10s is impressive on any street car in my opinion. This being a 4 door car wtih "mild" modifications makes it even more impressive.
