Can you bore out a 2.8 to a 3 or 3.2 litre engine. I'm guessing you could in a Bimmer but then you would have a problem with the computer goodies. If you can, why don't people do it? If it can't be done, why can't it be done?

Because a BMW engine is tuned so well for its stock cyl size. Thats why people dont do it, It would be a ROYAL PITA to do.

I dont think its that big of a task, there are zillions of "stroker" kits for the older engines, I'm sure there are a few for the newer too.

thats true, but why? why go through the trouble of boring/stroking a car that honestly doesnt need it? It isnt a ford or chevy with a big block.

well, sell it and buy a 540. cost that is involved with the stroker kit, all the work, and the electronics will cover the difference.

BMW did its own boring. a 3.5 is a 3.3 bored. boring is a good thing if done right

though i agree it would cost too much to be worth it.

Well, some people like the feeling of the 6 vs the v8 - the 6s also have a bit more mod potential. Often times its a pain to sell the car for another due to losses, etc and some people have attachments to their cars.

Personally, I'd rather go for a stroker kit and some other mods, too.

I dont have a need for a fast car. I'm not complaining. I'm simply stating that it is slow and there is a good reason for it to be bored out.
