Ive been contemplating, and I think that the 3.0L stroker kit for the M20 might be more reasonable then just getting the S50. The S50 ofcourse might have its advantages just because its a completely new 'thing'. but the 3.0 stroker kit has just about the same hp, if not, then like 1hp less. but i hear that the 3.0L kit is supposed to be awesome.

and the S50 with install will run me about 6-10k, and the 3.0L kit with a new clutch, and exhaust system will end up being about 3 or 5 k MAX, thats with upgrades.

What do you guys honestly think is the better solution, and please dont just say S50 cuz its more expensive.

Send a message via AIM to catalyst.
if your at all willing to spend the 6-10k on the s50 install then you mine as well just go a couple grand more and buy an e36 m3.

or you could buy an e30 m3

if your dont have the cash, stroke it.

I guess stroking to add displacement works well enough, but it also adds to piston speed obviously from the longer stroke B)

Halon man was up with the rotary man, why don't you do it?!?! (j/k)

Any how if you check out my E30 engine swap thread you will see I had the same dilema but the stroker is better man, you wont ruin the weight balance plus instead of the 6-10k you can spend 4k on the stroker plust get a racing differential and tranny. Now that is what I am talking about. Also with that 3.0l stroker you can get a lot more than 210hp out of it once you add stuff to it. Talk to seam they are cool as heck and they will make anything for you, whatever you want.

Ohhhhhh, and I am sure with that extra cash you save you can talk to the germans about some carbon fibre driveshafts (BMWDub pick up your jaw man hehehe). I am sure they would make some for you. I am trying to find somebody who will do it here in the USA hence I am going to PRI in indianpolis this year to talk to the companies.
