Dinan 5.8 litre "stroker"
'Visited dinan yesterday to pick up my completed S3. 'Will be doing a full report with pic's, etc. In the meantime, 'thought you E60/63 M5/6 folks might like to see Dinans' planned motor upgrade for your cars. It was in there engine shop. Steve Dinan said it'll have 620 crank hp; N/A!!. That's about the same as their S/C'd S3 E39 M5!! 'Didn't ask him cost or availability timing. He said they've already received deposits from over 50 customers for this motor. I asked him about durability issues for SMG with this motor. He said "No problem". Amazing.
And the fun begins!!
