I have been doing a bit of research into this and i quite like the idea of a non vanos m50 3.0, give the old girl something to scare M3's
From what i gather its m54 3.0 crank, rod and pistons and thats bout it? Its seems to easy, what else do i need?
While the engine was apart it can much be done with head flowing?
Cams - would schrik or us M3 cams be best?
Alpha N maps/ chips - can they bes used with the ecu for itb's and a huge airbox?
I know some of the more sensible would say drop in a S50 3.0 or 3.2 but the engine i have is in very good condtion, and i fancy something a little different.
Any advice is as always appreciated.
