    And indexed to how much you are paying over dealer invoice less incentives.

    You should be very worried. When they fail, you are stuck without a flatbed nearby.

    Essentially, yes. Hence the prohibitive cost.

    The main question (or enthusiast fantasy) is why doesn't BMW design one I6 block (or even a V8) that is more over square?

    It has to. It also is going to have an effect on the rod angle.


    The main advantage of a larger bore is that it would have larger valves in the head and thus more air. Just look at the Porsche...

    Oh, they did more than scratch the surface. Cobb is very cogent about releasing products that violate EPA parameters.

    N55 valvetronic is the latest and an improved version. Garbage it is most definitely not! Nor is the superior N55 oil vapor control scheme. We will ignore the bearing lubrication improvements so...

    Doubtless you know much more than I do about airflow, but if flat planes flowed well as curved ones why don't we see flat planes for vanes in turbochargers?
