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?

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