Wheel bearings

Well the wheel bearings are now done all nice and quite no more hum in the bum
Here are some pictures of the bearing kit from the UK @ 75% off Mr BMW retail why would you purchase local OEM.
by the way these M3 bearings are the same as the 135 & the 335

I did some work years ago for Fowles Auction Group, they couldn't handle the abbreviation so they called themselves FOG instead

I only just came across this post mate. I've been discussing the option of a one-off "Stage 3 extra wide dual core badass oil cooler setup" with JD in the other thread and it seems it's an overkill at this point in time. Plus it seems like I could purchase the extra componantry at a later date and upgrade to Stage 3 if I feel the need to anyway so I've dropped the idea. I'm committed to the Stage 2 anyway.

Btw, how's that E82 meth tank coming along?

Your build is coming along nicely

Being another Skyline person, what do you have in mind in terms of a new twin turbo setup? How are the stock internals in the n54s?

At this point in time i will use the Garrett 2860-5 these are the turbos we use on most of the track day GTR Skylines, these RB26 engines make 400kw ATW with this set up.
This turbo set up fitted to the new hitech N54 i expect that 450kw would be fine.The idea of a big single and turbo lag is not for me. I have driven to many lag monsters over the years big power but a nugget on the street.
But there are so many other issues with the N54 engine cooling being the problem, oil, water, air, then there is the clutch, brakes, drive line etc there is no point to break the car we have a lot of R&D to do. So that the big twin set up will be some time away 6-12 months As far as the engine goes what can i say it is just a fantastic engine, i have no idea how far to take it in stock form we have 350kw now, in the US they say 450kw+. I dont want to break an engine
so i will go carefully

Really can't wait till you offer some turbo upgrades

COBB as a potential tune since APR is now out??

What exactly do you have to be making 350kw? Is that at the fly or rwkw?

I love that you are doing this testing/R&D lol, I can see the 335i being the next cult car as they become more affordable over the next few years.

I would love to see the max potential of a stock, bolt on setup style car. Also I hope you keep it street usable, not a laggy setup.

Hey mate,

that power figure is 350 rwkW.

Unless you are full bolt on and running RB turbos with Methanol injection, you will be at least a few kW's shy of that number.

Whilst Pete claims 6-12 months on a Garrett GT2860R-5 twin turbo conversion, I personally would like it to be 6 months at the most.

However he is treading carefully and rightfully so, as rebuilding a N54 would be a very expensive exercise.

FYI,

based on my calculations Shiv has made the equivalent of approximately 420 rwkW on the Advan dyno, with his "Big Single" setup.

Whilst I have no interest in a single turbo conversion, it does illustrate how stout the stock internals of the N54 engine truly are.

I suspect within the next 3-6 months we will know how robust the stock bottom end really is and how far it can be pushed, "before it ejects a rod out the side of the block", (young Chris).

Whilst Pete feels confident that Garret -5's would make 450 rwkW on my car, I would be ecstatic if the stock motor could reliably support 400-425 kilowatts at the wheels.

It is already very impressive in a straight line, when rocking Map 4 on the Procede.

With another 50-75 rwkW it would a be streetable 10 second ET rocket ship.

Cheers,

JD.
