The engine is out of a 535xi that I bought for all the modules, 60,xxxk on the clock. All the gaskets have been done, as well as all the acelaries, a nut blast, stock plugs and index 5+8 injectors, and the Bosch coils. I have index 11 to put in, but want to get the car running before I replace what won’t work. Replacing parts for the sake of just replacing, are worthless if there doing the job. I could never understand this concept how guys replace it since your there, anyway...

Othe upgrades, the fuel log, obviously there is a difference here, or the wouldn’t make it, right? There had been a few big discussions about doing rod bearings, some agree, some disagree, King and ARP. I had to do these into the night as well. The top bearings all had the same wear, as all these engines I’ve seen, the lower were spotless.

A few other items done, front seal, and wrapped VRSP pipes, also on the table is a fuel pump option, run a big 400 or 450, or running twin 265 or 300 in a m5 bucket. Weighting out options, as I plan on running nitrous. This is a huge in what step to go in, not looking into pour a tone of money at, a 450 may do it, but I’ll need headroom. I have an m5 bucket I can work with, and it’s set up for twins, looking for max liters for e85 use while staying under the 20 amp margin. Plans are twin nitrous cp nozzles, Big Tom intercooler, and a custom inlet system. I wanted to install the 08 navigation, but it’s way outdated, and at this point, useless. Waze is so much simpler, I’d rather spend time on useful mods, that’s just money lost.

I switched to the larger one, and drilled out the office. The smaller hole tube was off the 535, in which had turbo and injectors upgraded. The larger tube came off a 335 motor that I bought with a spun bearing. From all the readings there has been huge discussions about wether or not this helps with pressure or not, but I plan on running e85 with this, so the larger hole will help with the required volume.

Take look at the Avin USA Android screens as a replacement for the iDrive interface.

Really good update for the tired E60 models
