    Hello people I'm after a little help, recently bought a eaton m112 supercharger and a m24 turbo for my project, I'm stuck between 2 engines, I have both m50b25 vanos and m50b25 non vanos and would like to which one is the best for forged internals and boost. Are the blocks the same thickness?, do I go for 2.8 stroker for the forged crank or stick to the 2.5, vanos or none vanos, I'm looking around the power range of roughly about 500bhp as a daily drive semi drag drift setup, can anyone please give me some idea or info on which engine to start stripping so I can start buying rods and pistons and to get things off to the machine shop.

    Thanks for your help Adam.

    I'd go M50 NV block with 2.8 internals.

    Cheers LS but why the none vanos is there actually any difference in the motors other that the vanos? I was thinking 2.8 internals for the forged bits but I hear people saying vanos is better for tuning than nv, I will be using a mega squirt stand alone ecu and tuning by warringtons tuning developments. Thanks for your info.

    Just because I'm M50 NV through and through lol

    Plus I've never had any problems with M50 NV engines and I know a lot of people that have had problems with the vanos engines.

    I think it probably comes down to personal preference really.
