A while ago I went to Dinan and saw an M5 sitting on their lot. One of the sales guy came to me and asked me whether I wanted to see the M5 engine on a stand. They took the engine out of the silver M5 and put it on a stand to do some 'Supercharging' research.

Was that your M5?

c'ya :)

: : BTW- you should bring up the M5 soon.... that would show those import guys!!!!

: I'll bring the M5 as soon as Dinan has a go at it. Turning in a low-13s 1/4 wouldn't surprise anyone. Turning in a high-11s 1/4 would shock the hell outta them. We're looking at twin superchargers and some head/intake work -- between 500BHP and 600BHP when all's said and done. With 550BHP and reasonable traction I should be able to do an 11.7 ...
