If you've not seen my posts in the E39 section here's my E39 M5 with an S85 V10 fitted.

Now I've driven the car the next plan was always to pull the engine and inspect inside and do the rod bearings.
In this video I strip the engine down and inspect, luckily the crank is ok just worn bearings as to be expected

Wow - interesting merge. with the prices of the E60 vs. E39 M5's not sure why anybody would actually do this, but it's cool!

best of both worlds!

Awesome job mate.

Can you give us a link to the build, or tell us how you did the DME, Cluster and all that programming fun?

Not everything is about money, I've had a supercharged 540i previous to this so similar to a stock M5 and wanted something different. I prefer the E39 shape but wanted the V10 experience.

Thanks, I haven't got a build thread as such it's mainly pictures on my Instagram same as on here @Jon1465

Here's a little drive by video I did before pulling the engine
