    Greetings fellow BF.com FI
    Last summer was pretty good. Car worked OK, Wastegate was too small so the tune was very conservative after 5k rpm....
    But still Got 630hp and 810nm/600ft-lbs


    After abusing last fall... did some parting out... Sold M50NV intake and M54 intake cams for friends Drifter project





    Well what then, Decided to order bigger 60mm wastegate, E-throttle from ls7, Deatschwerks FPR, New An-lines from fuel, New mac valve for wastegate.



    Then some new Rims






    Looks Okay to me

    Before Xmas dropped manifold for friend to weld new WG flange
    Good old TIG weld


    Sprayed some Coating of VHT Flameproof



    Manifold back at it and Tested how new ''World's'' best 60mm WG would fit.


    And cause i cant stand gates vacuum line... All are done by AN-4 and fittings.

    Turbo to below WG port, Top of can to MAC valve

    MAC Valve switched place to Strut tower...


    Original Fuel lines were, rotten so they decided to go retirement




    Nice things to own King E36... AN-8 Straight to OEM places

    very nice car and impressive numbers, also on the ALU M52 bottom end, makes me more confident about my M52!
    can I ask what head bolts/studs you used when you where on stock ALU M52 bottom end?

    Thank u sir! First Page 530hp/650nm were on alumium Block... 1.1bar of boost back then and Stock(Febi Bilstein was manufacturer) head bolts, M50NV Conrods with ARP bolts. Bolts ain't really the issue... Block threads are. There are Timeserts for ALU block that should solve the issue.

    thanks! I know it is the threads, but this seems to only happen after overheating. durin 34 celcius weather this year, my e36 stayed at the right operating temperature while pushing it pretty hard at 0,8bar. I am changing my GT28 to a HX35 now, so was hoping I could up the boost a bit. 400hp at 1bar would be nice! and it seems I can do that on stock bolts. was thinking about going for the raceware studs for the M54 otherwise. I don't want to timesert the engine since my power goals for now is only 400hp and it is a lot of work.
    thanks a lot for your input! appreciatie it!

    With HX35 easy 400hp @1bar, if u could use e85! I think even with pump it is possible.

    No e85 for me, its hard to get around here. 98RON or even 102RON is easily available here. will be tuning on 98.

    Yeah! We might have just hit 500whp mark last year.... Debeaded tyre so dyno did say 430whp LOL

    It is possible to hit 800 crank @26psi , if i that Garrettmotion boost adviser is right

    I didn't play with it that much. It made best power with the intake cam at 120 degrees, which is stock, and exhaust cam at like 108 degrees, which I think is a little bit retarded from stock.

    So finally today arrived parts from states. Hot boiii cams



    Now all I have to do is just put it together.. These were last parts. Oh and got Dash-8 adaptors To Flexfuel sensor. From www.finjector.com

    Decided To not assembly Supertech valvesprings yet. Sticking with 33mm Ina lifters and Oem B28 springs. Those are good to 7500rpm at least.

    Dreaming Forged pistons and 6870 precision maybe In future.
