DinanM5 is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
Howdy folks,

Just want to let everyone out there in BMW land that my car is for sale. Its a 1988 DINAN M5 Stroker. If you have any questions or you just want to shoot the you know what...email me at quianzon@hotmail.com. I posted an add in a local (San Francisco Bay Area) listing a few days ago and the response was overwhelming, so I figured the auction route would be the best way to get true market value.

It means the stroke of the piston has been changed to increase displacement

That is correct "stroker" lengthens the stroke or the distance that the piston travels in the cylinder. The way that is done is by shorter connecting rods. The further it goes down in the block, the more gas and air can be let in. I am wondering what the compression ratio is now that he changed it to a stroker motor. Can you still run the car on pump gas or do you have to get high octane now.
used Are BMW motors all rollor (rocker arms/push rods have little wheels that reduce friction and don't rob hp) or not?
