I think he was getting at you said it didn't matter what engine, so in theory would you be interested if this was a 1.6L 4A-FE transplant? :p

In for how much torque an e39 m5 diff can handle.

I would be definitely re-enforcing the front diff bush mounting. Have seen these snap even with stock M5 torque levels.

If you google search I think the instructions of how Dinan re-enforce it are available.. basically extra welds and some gussets around the sides. A solid diff mount should help with more of the load being absorbed by the subframe bushes.

Well that would be interesting too... for wildly different reasons.

But if one reads the thread they'll find that in context my comment made perfect sense... 'any [LS] engine' if people need it spelled out... I didn't think that would be necessary on a car enthusiasts' forum... 😕

Setting up the L76 for fitment in the Ute next to the L98. 

Was comparing HSV headers to stock manifolds. 

These are the ones that I would like to fabricate...

How much for engine/gearbox plus shipping if you dont mind?

 

I've been trying to source one locally but if it's reasonable I'll try Aussie instead.

 

My 2008 VE was running 640hp pretty easily
