It's not about the Stock head bolts stretching. It's about the aluminum block threads when the ARP bolts are in. Has anybody had the issue when the threads strip right out of the block?

Rocklee,
Your question was not specific about the head rising.. nor did you mention your power goal.. I have not had any issues with raceware head studs lifting or thread strip BTW.

and ARP does not make "bolts" but studs for the head FYI.

My Ride: TS2+ ZHP, ESS E39 M5
Decided to take the ZHP to my local Dyno shop to get numbers in before I install my bimmerbrakes headers and upgrade my fuel pump and fuel injectors.
I'm very happy with the results, considering the car has stock exhaust manifold.

Kit/Stage: ESS TS2+ 8.5 PSI
Other Power adders: UUC Lightweight Flywheel, TSE3 Catback, BMW Performance intake
Type of Dyno: dynojet
Miles on car: 128k
Miles with S/C: >50k
HP: 320 WHP / *376 to the crank
TRQ: 280

Any issues? Not enough power!




*Based on this statement from ESS Website:
Correction factor for drivetrain loss is 15% above RWHP as seen in dynograph (RWHP/0.85)
Props to ESS for advertising real numbers. In fact, I should be getting a little more once the headers are in.

I have the ESS TS3 pulley for 15.2 psi.
On my M52TU28, boost was around 16.2 psi. (lots of clutch slip)
I have know M54B30 and UUC Twin Clutch with the ESS 15.2 psi pulley, yet to be dynoed, car still in workshop as we speak.

Mate, did you ever go on dyno Dynamics?

Thinking a ESS TS for 330xi, just want to see Dynamics figures in shoot out mode.

As-far-as I know, I hold the power record for a M54B25 stock internals (w/head studs)

Keep in-mind I'm running on crappy 91, and very conservative timing.

For my dyno run, the spark kept going out at ~20psi so the car was limping at @371hp on a mustang dyno. when I have time to fix the spark/boost spike issue I should be seeing ~500hp @ the wheels

I remember how every a$$h*** told you that you couldn't do what you were planning on doing !!! ......I remember.

Look how well you've done now.

I find it so fascinating that it's always the guys that have know idea what they're talking about, that try to tell you / or anyone else that it Can't be done.
