    The memoryfab.com guys say they can make caps for about any wheel. Might be worth at least calling them.

    I agree. I just started lifting Friday, after getting married a year ago and not exercising a single day since then. My body is not happy.

    Today was legs and abs day, almost couldn't drive home because I couldn't push the damn clutch. HA. Makes me wish I had SMG or DCT.

    I think that sound is due to them having a flat plane crank, different firing order than a regular V8.

    Looks like I was making things up, VANOS never touched these motors. Sticky, I'd love it if you wrote an article about this motor, like the excellent one you did on the s54 and s65.

    What cylinder head types are available for this motor? Non vanos, single vanos, dual vanos?

    The reason I ask, is I think I remember hearing someone say that either this engine was available as a...

    Crank is about the most expensive component in the engine.

    A 3.4 crank for the S54 from VAC is $5000. Plus there is a lot of other work you have to do to make the engine fit the crank. Special...

    M50/52 + S50/52: Mounting the motor vertically instead of slanted...

    Mounting the motor vertically instead of slanted frees a HUGE amount of space for that turbo. Do you have to install a dry sump to do that?

    I imagine with a custom oil pan, dry sump wouldn't be...

    I agree, wish I could wait but I needed it ASAP, as I sold my dd on Sunday. I'm getting it through private sale for a great price, so I won't lose money if the engine turns out to be a disappointment.

    Going to pick this up tomorrow. I was looking for a 1.8T but wasn't able to find any that met my requirements. This one is perfect, only lightly modded and already has a manual transmission swapped...

    I think they should name the coupes the 3 series and the sedans the 4 series. That would make m3 and m4 make sense to me. But it is probably too late for that.

    Will this require machining of the block? I've seen some that do, some that don't.

    I'm keeping the 330.

    I don't want two sedans, seems redundant. 330i sedan and a4 wagon seems like a good combo.

    Making it a manual will be the first mod, for sure.

    Thanks for your awesome post, Ryan. That's exactly what I needed to know.

    I think S4 avant's are pretty rare in the US.

    An S4 sedan will be too similar to the zhp to justify buying.

    B5: Audi a4 b5, which engine is better?

    I'm going to be adding an awd vehicle to the fleet, and I have my eyes set on a 2001 a4 avant. Coming from a bmw background, I don't know much about these cars. Which engine is better? The 1.8t or...

    I definitely agree with what others are saying about maintenance costs. Just because someone is going to buy you the car, doesn't mean that you can afford to own it.

    I believe the issue which affects whether the heads will fit is that m54 and m52 have different coolant passages. Maybe it can be machined to work.

    Not sure where the m52tu falls as far as...

    So for under 15k you can put together a 1200rwhp monster....

    I think this has convinced me to aim for higher displacement for my next motor build.
