To achieve the additional GTS displacement ( M3 GTS engine displacement is still less than M62 / N62 engine displacement ) they mention to use different pistons and a different crankshaft. Cyliner bore ( 92mm ) is unchanged, stroke increased from 75.2mm to 82mm. They don't mention conrods.

Now, should we learn from this ? I guess, yes.

Whats there to learn from it? Facts are up
