First, please only respond to this post if you have FIRST HAND experience. I don't mean to start a war here as all of these guys are renowned primo first class BMW engine builders. I would eventually like to rebuild my '88 S14 (#WBSAK030XJ2195632) into the Evo 3 "spec" 2.5L configuration. Normally I would do my own work, but to me, for this car, I feel it's worth it to have a documented tuner engine. When it happens, this is to be a "money is no object" project so who is the best strictly from a performance/reliability/driveability perspective. No turbos or kompressors, just the 2.5L with whatever other internal upgrade goodies to give it the most go and still retain a streetable idle. Anybody use MM's patented Hi-Flo Sport Surface Turbulance M3 head? How does it compare to a real Evo3 head with the larger valves? Who else should I consider besides Uncle Ray and Jim Rowe? Upton? Someone floated the name Pete McHenry on Long Island? This isn't going to be a racing engine. Remember, please only respond if one of these guys did your OWN s14 engine. Thanks, Jeff
