This thread will be showing our built M57 and the modifications we have done to the chassis. We are very excited and can't wait to share the progress with everyone here. Specs will be shared later but to get the ball rolling, here is the candidate and making progress on getting the drive train out of the car and upgrading the rear subframe assembly. I'll be updating this thread as we continue to move forward :cool:

We cut up a factory piston to show how thick it is in areas as well as to show how its constructed.

No tq/hp or boost expectations we just want to make as much as possible to see what this platform can handle.

I love how you are the only guys I see pushing the diesel models. I bet that thing is going to be a BLAST to drive!

I am very far from reaching your level of preparation
but we know that the cp3 r90 is not enough when you want to reach 480/500 HP
there is a lot of information on the turbos my almost nothing on the fuel system
I think to replace my low pressure pump in the tank by a pump type "walbro 450"
I would like to improve my R90 but I do not know how to do it
I will try to find an R110 and see if I can recover some internal elements
(sorry for my sentences that must not be very clear, I use a translator ... Sorry sorry)
