Thanks for the Turner Motorsport info, that's exactly what I wanted to hear. I'm actually building a 2002 for this motor. I'm gonna widen the body, and do all the supesion mods. I'm using the M3 trans and a 320i limited slip diff as well, and it will be on the track, but street legal. I just hope it won't be too much power for the street in this little 2200 pound car (it will have all the bracing and a full cage, obviously). Any input would be greatly appreciated, along with any suggestions, of course.
: I have a Turner 2.5L stroker motor with stage 3 heads, larger valves, schrick cam shafts and motorsport header. I LOVE this motor. The car is primarily a track car and I have had NO problems with the motor (15k miles). I used to have a 450hp 300zx twinturbo with major suspension and brake work and the M3 runs consistently faster at all the tracks I go to and costs lots less to maintain.
: : I'm trying to find out what my options are for stroking my M3 motor to a 2.5L. I know Top End offers a kit, and so does Turner Motorsport. Does anyone else offer a kit? Dinan offers a built motor, but I have PLENTY of building experience, and would rather not pay an insane amount of money for someone else to do the work that I enjoy. Dinan, aside, which kit is the best? Has anyone here done the conversion, and what are your experiences? Am I better off piecing the parts together and using maybe a Dinan chip for the conversion? Price-wise, the Turner kit is the best at about $2200. Any help would be greatly appreciated, TIA!
