Dinan S3-R Build by ilikebmxbikes

Hello all,

This thread is to document my Dinan S3-R project. I had an m4 on order but after much deliberation, I cancelled my order and decided to look for an e92 m3. I wont debate the merits of the two cars but basically the e92 m3 has always been an inspiration to me and I needed one in my life.

I am no stranger to the s65 and can say that the 4.6L is absolutely a different beast. It has everything I love about an NA s65 but a whole lot more torque. I will be bringing the car to LA to have Mike_Benvo protune it. No doubt Dinan makes great products but they do tend to tune very conservatively for their street cars. Mike tuned / coded my S65 1M clone and I have no doubt when we get this thing on a dyno, he can make the most out of it's potential as well as code in some nice features.

My main goal with this car is just to make a nice weekend track toy / street build. It is to accompany my 1 series so it wont be as hardcore ( or so I hope).

I will be releasing a lot of information on the build and tuning. I know there has been a big lack of information on stroker dynos so hopefully I can contribute some useful information.

Some photos of the car before it shipped down to CA





unboxing





Immediately after the truck unloaded the car. I drove it to Performance Technic and we put these on her. They are temporary until my HRE's are mounted. Waiting on TPMS.

Fantastic ride! Personally it would be hard for me to molest a signed Dinan S3-R, especially considering what some are getting for E46 S3-Rs these days. But its an awesome ride none the less and I would probably take this over an M4 as well.

Enjoy! Looking forward to updates.

I know what you mean. I have a bunch of iND stuff coming for the car, HRE's, Stoptechs ( S3-R kit doesnt come with brakes!) and BMW Performance Seats. I will also likely get an RKP lip and Euro bumper from iND as well. I want to preserve a lot of what dinan has already done to the car and just compliment it with tasteful upgrades.

Well I am envious... its a great starting point and will be a bullet proof track car. From what I understand, all of Dinans stroker builds have been extremely reliable. I am hopeful I can get a Dinan 4.6 S65 or something similar under my hood eventually.

You have seriously one of the best e92s out there. I spent quite a bit of time looking at it at Bimmerfest. A stroker in your car would be out of this world.

I have plenty of love for the f80. Its an awesome car and platform. Its just not for me. I will probably own one some day.

I have a few ideas for it but it wont be a full build out like my 1series. I have a bimmerfest 2015 project on a different chassis that will be a large build out.

The volks do look good. But I have some R43's for this car. I will be able to switch wheels and tires between both cars so the M3 can run the 1series's take offs.

Thanks Cat. Andrew@iND helped me out on the first half of the cosmetic package. You will probably see the parts before I do.
