Hi,

Can you put NOS into a E39 M5 Beast? I heard from someone that is not possible as the all-alloy block won't handle the extra load. Is he talking cack or is that true? Has anyone on here done it? What are the drawbacks etc?

Cheers

Ive seen the wheelsboutique car in person and they were using a direct port system tapped into the velocity stacks, not for the faint of heart. It ran well and until it was sold, i believe they did multiple sprays.

A statement of caution: if you do run nitrous, make sure it is installed and tuned by a professional. Do not use a cheapy auto parts store kit, as the chance of blowing a $20k engine is not worth the extra grunt for a few runs. Not to say you would, but I just fear repair bills.
That being said, if you get a good install make sure to make some vidoes! The S62 is stout, but any engine that runs enough nitrous will have some long term problems.
:cheers:
