    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    I am confident that this joint venture project will meet your performance goals, timeline and budget expectations. Please keep us updated weekly- even if nothing happens that week. A lot of people here would like to see those updates.
  2. anyone running standalone ecu for s85?

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    So the turbocharged S85 is a path down a long road. You would need to build the engine for low(er) compression, might as well put rods in while you’re at it, stud the heads too. Then you have to fab the exhaust headers for the turbos and wastegates. If you want front mount turbos you have to cut...

    Have you data logged your car with BMW Logger? Get those logs and let us look at it. Best thing you can do at this point.
  4. Need some tips on how to get my car off the line faster !

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Just stab the throttle when you leave with good tire under it if you want to leave hard. With drag radials the Euro SMG LC tune at 4500 rpm will still fall on its face- even with lots of power. Frustrating.
  5. New standalone for S85 with 6MT or DCT

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Really not too bad, any of the these OEM replacement ECUs are going to be at least that much- ton of development work to get to that point. My US Syvecs tuner has been keeping me informed of the progress on this kit and I am going to install it as soon as its available. I would prefer the MoTec...
  6. Troy Jeup 6.0 Stroker

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    The car still lives just fine and pics are around as well as videos are on youtube. I did change some things since the last post. I decided to lower the compression on the 6.0 for a forced induction application. The nitrous is brilliant addition to the car- I had no problems before the...

    Thread revival! Whose running what in 2018? What kits? HP? controllers? plugs?
  9. Night vision retrofit

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Nice job. Do you think the OEM camera is the same firmware as the FLIR PathfindIR camera?
  10. Bad feeling

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    When did you get out of the coma? Have you missed the dozens of "my S85 spun a bearing at 65K threads?" Plenty of cars made it to high miles but an abnormal amount lost rod bearings far below 100k
  11. Why Pagani Huayra was designed using Single Clutch?

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Weird you brought up the Pagani. I was at the Indy car race in Texas. I spoke with the transmission mfgr there and they told me oddly they built the Pagani gearbox... And that gearbox is probably incredible, I wouldn't worry about shift times. How about engaging the next gear before you actually...
  12. 6.0L stroker power output to the wheels?

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    More to it than peak dyno numbers. My lowly 520 hp 6.0 wiped every FBO E60 off the road along with a VT2-650 M6 a VT2-650 M5 and set the Texas Mile record for a NA M5. Why didn't the 500+ hp cars do that in 07 or 2010? I bought my car in 2014! Tommy's properly tuned and re-engineered SC car...
  13. 6.0L stroker power output to the wheels?

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    That's about right. My 6.0 made 520 who's on a Mainline dyno off the bottle, with secondary cats. Made 670 on the spray.
  14. Low compression build, sleeving, bigger blower and possibly stroked

    E63/E64 M6 Discussion
    860 at 12 psi is a nice number. The torque is oddly low on your car- did you ask Gintani about that? There are several other 700+ hp SC M5/M6 cars with over 740 ft/lb of torque. Just asking.
  15. S85's + NOS

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion
    Like I posted earlier- this success of type of N20 set up is dependant entirely on the equal distribution of nitrous and fuel to all ten cylinders. Without EGT or a lambda wideband O2 sensor in every cylinder as you can't really determine the A/F mixture in each cylinder- (you could spray it at...
