    I hope you've got quotes before doing all this then, as I'd be very surprised if they didn't charge you a fair bit more for a modified turbo 325 than they would for a standard M3.

    It´s not going to be easy using a M50 as a base no matter what size you make it.

    I´d actually reccomend you a turbo. When you have been in a bmw turbo car you´d understand
    thats my plan mate saving up for a turbo still trying to decided between a GSracing unit or Holset though

    surprisingly, now this will sound daft and backwards but me and my mate tried this with adrain flux. declaring mods on the car actually droped the premium! very confusing to be honest

    I have a problem! Can someone tell me why every time I tighten up the inlet sproket to the second stage of 22Nm, it just strip the nut or the pin!? Getting very sick now as I already been to a scrappy to rip a 5 series apart just for them bolts and nuts and same story =[
    My engine is the single Vanos and the inlet cog is the assembly without the diaphragm spring. Its the older set up with just a big stop disc.

    I´ve sold a couple of GSRacing units and not heard complaints.

    My reccomendation is don´t stroke it until after you get it turboed. You may find no need for a stroker when you´r running turbo with plenty of torque

    Ahh, doesn't surprise me with Adrian Flux - One of my friends was insured with them on his heavily modded Rover 200 (not to be sniffed at - worked out more bhp per ton than an E36 M3 Evo by quite a large margin!), then wanted something a bit more sedate and less likely to kill him so bought an MG ZS180, and they flat out refused to insure him on the grounds that it wasn't modified enough!

    Do you plan on running more then 500hp?
    If not that can easily be achieved using the stock engine size by just running more boost.

    but it depends on how you want the power delivery to be.

    So what is the maximum power you would imagine to ever run?
