    Nitrous is like cocaine for engines. It is a crutch that only creates more problems long term.

    Actually it is a B58, quite different from the N series with closed deck block and dual zone block and head cooling just for starters.

    122S? Very pretty but the heat loading on the radiator would not work in most of the US in the Summer. Seems like he could have baffles the sides of the radiator to better duct ambient air through...

    How much gain there was. Helix has always been one of the most thermally stable and efficient IC.

    That's the bottom line. Things like key locked crankshaft balancers, forged pistons and rods, closed decks and optimized heads cost money. The big advantage (besides no Valvetronics) is that the...

    I think AUS was one of the markets that received the GETRAG DCT on some 335i.

    For BMW, I recall only the N54 being Piezo electric DI. All the rest are solenoid.

    I believe I have read some of the Porsche Turbo and Turbo S designated engines employ piezo electric injectors....

    Nice, but say you go from Austin (93 pump octane) to San Diego (91 ACN crapgas) where does one change the tune and to which tune? OEM have to leave considerable margin so all 15 seasonal blends...

    Better have a good dashcam to see who will key the car.

    I remember with my 135i I would park it in the furthest reaches of the parking lot with empty rows surrounding it. Come back 20 minutes...

    Sounds like with that power draw it may be better to wait for a 48V system.
  17. HRE is one of the most overhyped names in the aftermarket wheel game.

    One wonders if you have ever had forged wheels from BBS, OZ Racing, Rays Engineering or Forgeline?

    I have seen HRE come apart on the track. I would never own a set nor would I run them even on...

    Well, I did see something in Chinese that referenced the B58B30TU mentioning the (presumably new) X6. I am just mystified why BMW would refer to an engine that has not been produced as a...

    Note drop in geometric CR to 9.3.

    Single cooling system now instead of stratified on B58.

    Anyone know in which vehicle the B58B30TU engine (upon which the S58B30T0 is based) is installed?

    Porsche car is too much money to run, much less modify. Ferrari et all way past my budget.

    Besides, I would hate to get the chair for offing some punk who dented my car with his door.
