Mike, not to hijack thread, but on the topic of cams do they pass SMOG here in Cali?

M-Power FTW! At least old M-Power, the new ones go into limp mode faster than a fat b!tch who sat down too fast.

Yes, should pass although technically it's not a smog 'legal' change. But then again any of our mods aren't either

In for results impressions on cam tuning on the S65, with the blowers providing such an easy button for big power, NA development hasn't had the spotlight it should have on these cars with such an awesome starting point. Some of us who plan to keep our cars until we need a coffin and then be buried in them and will need a rebuild anyway might be interested in this kind of thing when it's time to freshen the motor...heh

Yep. We have done S65 stock, FI and na stroker builds so far :0

Benvo - thanks. We may mess with the stock DME when we tear our E92 apart. Could be a fun winter project. Of course, we have to do a proper track build (S54 prob) also over the winter...it will be hard to prioritize!!

best is to call as it is all going to vary. this isn't a off the shelf piece, and there are many options when it comes to building a piece.

^ This

m3an - I will follow up with you tomorrow. Timing is pretty good for the machine shop, we are getting things under control. Mark, you too!

I have 2 core S65s in house and 5 more on the way.

ps. Dinan charges $25k for
Dinan proprietary billet crankshaft
Dinan proprietary lightweight forged pistons
Dinan proprietary light-weight connecting rods
Balanced and blueprinted engine build
Dinan electronics and engine management software

No head work (at all), no TBs, standard oil system etc. Obviously they can offer everything if requested, price will be adjusted appropriately

Sounds like you are working with a very fun client who knows what he wants!

I can't wait to hear further updates on the dyno results.

I must ask though, who does supply Dinan's cranks?

Vendor feedback/review belongs in the Vendor Comments/Review/Feedback Forum. That is what it's there for - to share positive or negative experiences with vendors so other members can refer back to it when researching a vendor.

The technical discussion forums should stay on-topic (i.e. technical discussions).

For those wondering, the engine is 100% complete. Just waiting on some stuff with the client and we will get it to the dyno. Then the real fun begins
