    Sounds good - strong Iron block, big displacement
    What about the cylinder head/cams?
    Don't forget to lower the compression with either a thicker head gasket and/or skim the pistons...

    Not decided on the electronics yet, probably gonna use a megasquirt (still doing a bit of research in this area)

    Piston and rods will be changed but standard M50 head will be fine...read this post - its very long but interesting. this guy is running >800 bhp on standard.

    Let us know what EMS you're choose! Good luck with the build!

    The 3 or 3.2l crank will fit if it is from a us engine. Search up frankenstein motors. Otherwise you can use a crank from an m54b30(same crank as us s52b32).
    With the power your after you might want to upgrade pistons and rods. The standard head is fine and you don't need to go to go to m3 cams.
    If you've got the time,knowledge and skill megasquirt has been proven to work fine. jfdmas is at 800hp+ on a high compression m50.
    Vanos isn't an issue. Any good standalone will be able to activate it(even megasquirt). It isn't hard to turn a solenoid on. Vanos can be used to spool up the turbo faster as well. Deleting it isn't going to do you many favours
    Making the manifold will be a bit tricky.
    gstuning will have a few options for you

    Inlet or exhaust?
    I've already sorted the exhaust manifold - that was a bit tricky! (being RH drive) - modified a LH drive turbo manifold from USA.
    Any advice on the inlet? I'm currently just using the standard M52 inlet manifold (just to get it setup before I start with the EMS) - I'm going to swap it for an M50 unless anyone has any other ideas?

    I did just mean the exhaust. Do you have any pictures of your work?
    Standard m50 intake would be my pick

    Not at the minute - but may do soon as I'm hoping to get it back out next week to do a small repair on one of the welds.

    You weren't lying! It's pretty long eh?!?
    Lots of good info in there too - not sure if I'll be going quite as extreme as that!
    Keep us informed with the progress of your build - I'll start a thread on mine once I've got it tidied up a bit
