► DINAN E92 M3 4.6L with 18″ ARC-8 Wheels

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com


Lacha + APEX

Our customer Lacha had a vision to build a one of a kind track car. Many enthusiasts lobbied for him to get a supercharger but he chose to go another direction for this build. Thanks to the help of SD Autotech (now Carbahn Autoworks), Lacha’s Dinan M3 features a Dinan Stroker 4.6L motor. This car has been personally autographed by Steven Dinan himself – adding an additional 50 horsepower 😉. You can follow his build @m3an_s65 on Instagram.

Awesome build. I'm also interested in going the stroker route if I still have my car at 100k.

How much power is this puppy putting out? Gotta be an absolute screamer!

Also, what trunk is that? Flows nicely.

He said it was making 429 whp on a bpm stage 2 tune, crazy! The torque is the big plus with strokers though, around an extra 50-55 lb ft than a full bolt on 400 whp build.

Such a sick car.

Does anyone have a dyno of it? Curious to see the actual graph. Either way, N/A 429whp and a fatter torque curve on pump would be a dream come true!

The dyno curves of strokers look pretty similar

Up to 7500rpm they have like 40whp more than a FBO car, then stop increasing hp as they are choking. So it appears that a FBO car 'catches up', but it does not.

That's why you need 292 cams, ported heads and headers on a stroker build!

Nice! I was under the impression that Dinan was no longer building these strokers. Sick ride.

Dinan isn't as they moved to Alabama but Carbahn (formally Dinan) in California occasionally does some.

CarBahn (formerly SD Autotech) can build whatever you can dream up. Call David Kim with questions.

The car is beautiful.

I'm actually really bummed out Dinan doesn't sell the stroker anymore - I had always wanted to do one.

Steve Dinan's new company Carbahn still makes the S65 stroker.

I'm sure the answer is "if you have to ask, then..."

But what does this cost?
