Currently having my S54 rebuilt by Kayne Barrie. Would recommend him if he does those earlier engines. He's definitely an authority when it comes to race engines.

Kayne is amazing.  Always supported me whilst I was racing in the BMW series.
If he is unable build the engine he will point you in the right direction.

He has built a number of gearboxes and diffs for me over the years.

As for your M30.

I would recommend upgraded valve springs and some locking collars.
Also convert the oil pump sprocket nut to a bolt.

You won't get significant gains from the motor.  It is a bit of lazy lump.  Most of us go down the turbo route.

There is still some good parts available from VAC Motorsports.

However the only reason I have upgraded at all was because I was going down the turbo hole.  Otherwise I would not have bothered.
I never had any issues at all whilst racing my stock M30 with some headers, an intake and a conversion to MAP with a piggyback MAPECU2.

Gearbox syncros were a nightmare though.  I inherited some worn syncros when I purchased the car.  Kayne can help you here though.
