Hey guys. I have picked up a set of Schrick cams myself about 1 month ago for my M6.....but please bare in mind that a specialized tool set must be ordered from BMW Germany that carry a cost of $2000 plus shipping as well (these tools are not readily available outside Germany in most cases). $100+ in gaskets needed too. Your performance shop will need to have these in hand to complete the cam replacement, setting of the vanos and cam timing without any issues. This install will also require special instructions from BMW as well. If the performance shop thinks they can handle the install without the special tools and the detailed BMW instructions do not give them the job! The install of will run you $2000+ as well. Plus the price of tuning to accomodate the cams.
Wasnt meant to discourage anyone - just wanted to let you guys know that the install is no cake walk and needs to go into the hands of someone that knows what they are doing. This S85 engine is expensive and you do not want to make any mistakes.
I will post a new thread of my install with photographs and dyno plots soon.
