    I've never been in a big power supra Click here to enlarge

    Would you prefer a supra or an M5 with the motor?

    Supra is actullay a good bit lighter then the M5, so I am guessing the rush of acceleration is more substantial in that car. I really thought the e39s were ~3800lbs, but they are 4000lbs which is a heavy pig. I believe Supras are 3400-3500lbs.

    Sometimes moving a heavier object though gives a different feeling. The feeling of accelerating a heavy car with a lot of power is different from a light one. Your car is going to feel insane, I'm jealous.

    You will not realize how fast you are actually going until you look at the speedometer ,it will fool you.
    Great project and from what I have read and seen the guys at E-SHIFT do their job well and have pride in their work.

    Wonder what the cost breakdown would be.
    the bimmer is iron and MIGHT win on cost(12k for the 2J IIRC?), assuming using the thicker head gasket method to lower compression

    don't forget about VANOS advantages for bmw

    but hot damn, look at all the room a near vertical 2J gives! Click here to enlarge

    The M52 was changed to aluminum? The S50, S52 being iron. So yes, some are iron.

    Thicker head gasket on the S50/S52 is certainly cost effective.

    How much are you looking to get for the S62? List it up for sale here, Google picks up our for sale thread pretty well, you never know.

    Update: E-shift has been great to work with so far. No bull$#@! or broken promises. Mike has talked me into going with a Greddy plenum and a q45 throttle body and also running a twin disk clutch setup instead of the HPF feramic clutch. He is hoping to have the car finished by the Nov 20th track day at MIR. At least be able to do some test runs and maybe dial it in more at that event. Motor and transmission should be installed over the weekend, and I will post pictues when I receive them.
