Nice work Drew!

You and this M3 have been through a ton! Good things come to those who wait and so does 700+hp! Thanks for being a pioneer and for your sacrifice to show us all what the M3 can be capable of. You and Izzy are setting some lofty numbers that will be extremely hard to be matched.

Congrats and see you soon!

Here's to Drew and Izzy for pushing the limit and showing us what the stock block can handle! R&D and good tuning, which controls detonation is much more valuable than throwing sleeves in an engine "as a precaution"
I agree, stock block is a much better option than sleeves on the S65. Done correctly you can get factory seal and not compromise the integrity of the cylinders. the only reason to sleeve it would be if you damaged the cylinders and needed to bore them out. Sleeves + high boost will most likley burn a lot of oil over time and fail.

Good #'s Drew!

You'll do great, FBO E85 GTRs are trapping mid to high 130's, and running with modded ZR1's, and SC'd Z06's. Can't wait tell you get it done!

Thanks Brother, I think I'm good for now, it will be interesting to see what Alex at Gintani can do with a YSI.

Good #'s Drew!
Buck! FWIW I have not burned any oil, and haven't even had to add any since we did the build. A few professional Engine builders, like BMRLVR, as well as AJ@ESS, informed me that sleeving this block was not the best option for my goals, so far so good!

Don't you feel MDM kills to much power? With my 650kit and 3.45 it just kills heaps of power on the gear changers almost feel like there's a lag in the auto but with MDM off just bangs in nice might wheel spin but I still feel its quicker

Very nice Drew. I have a feeling you will still try for 700whp SAE though.
