    What'd you do to your BMW today?

    Changed fuel pump, fuel filter and fuel hose, it lives!

    Quick Questions

    Turns out Para Rubber is the answer. SuperC didn''t have the right size. $10.

    Quick Questions

    If I'd got it the other day, yes! Ripco is 2.5km, thanks to the Akld motorway, it took me 50 min to get back from yours.

    Quick Questions

    What's the best place to buy fuel hose? Ripco? Need a whole 50mm.

    M3 rolling body

    Actually seems like a reasonable assumption.

    E87 M Sport with DCT/S65 Hellbm Project

    So to get ~ 100bhp/ litre, you have to rebuild the bottom end of the engine as a service item? Pffft!

    E87 M Sport with DCT/S65 Hellbm Project

    100,000 miles or 125,000km? Either way, a service item??

    Unknown parts?

    The rego on the bumper goes back to an ‘81 M535i if that’s helpful. Or correct.

    N54 rebuild who’s the best?

    As I said before, by all means prove me wrong with a project log, dyno runs and maintenance log once it's done. Personally, I don't think you (or anyone else) can reliably achieve 600+ rwhp (700 + crank) from that motor, but give it a go if you think it's achievable. Me, I think you'll need a miracle from the Bishop. If you do get there, based on the torque figure above, your DCT will be under major stress. I would also think you'd go single turbo, but that's just me. If you get there (reliably), I'll buy you a beer.

    N54 rebuild who’s the best?

    Your first post pretty much got what it deserved. Bm Workshop have experience modifying these motors, so that would be my first port of call. Suresh who used to be on here a lot had a well modified example, but nowhere like the number you’re talking, you want 700 plus crank hp and reliability? I say you can have one or the other. But please prove me wrong with a project thread, dyno sheet before and after and ongoing maintenance log. Best of luck with your project.

    Show me one that’s done 100.000 trouble free. ks. Stock ones do turbos, vanos solenoids and fuel pumps for a start.

    Vin decoders

    It’s off a car I found. Now in the back of my car. Will most likely go in to the Grey M325i I posted in “What did you do to your bmw today”, or into the ‘vert, once one of them has been rebuilt. This is smooth, quiet and no leaks. Got the tag cleaned today.

    Vin decoders

    Are there any vin decoders that show more detail than what I can access through etkbmw for example? I have 2 sites showing Lock Differential 25%, but am wanting the ratio? Can’t read the tag properly.
  16. Palazzo

    Vin decoders

    But to sum up, it’s most likely between 3.46 and 3.64 and is LSD? Certain it’s a uk car.

    Cheers Andy, will see how we go.

    Vin decoders

    I tried Realoem, lists various parts for the diff. If I use the text drill down part, only lists parts for an LSD, good?
  20. Palazzo

    Vin decoders

    I’ve looked at 3 or 4 decoders now, all say LSD, none have ratio. I thought Brent had one he shared on here once.
  21. Palazzo

    Diff ratio

    I’ll update it when I know or have it in my hands.
  22. Palazzo

    Diff ratio

    Does anyone know the diff ratio on a E30 325i auto? Were there several different ones? Most common? And did it change on an LSD? Cheers.
  23. Palazzo

    Diff ratio

    Looking at picking up a second hand diff from a 325i auto, wasn’t sure what ratio was likely to be in it. And it should be LSD.
  24. Palazzo

    Diff ratio

    I have a M325i, it’s 3.64. 3.73 is close though, thanks. Is it easy to have the ratios swapped? Sorry for the uninformed question.
