You get the fucck out of here.

Thanks for ruining the best movie of the year for me.

Wow impressive. What did you do to it??,

S54 shares nothing in common with a m54. 0 compatibility in parts

Best move for op? Remove supercharger system; install turbo kit. Power issue solved

Or up the current blower size/boost and install a s52b32 long block in its place. 3200cc+iron block for more boost and larger port head.

The double vanos from m54 can be retrofitted to a 3200cc s52b32 single vanos engine
Billet Original CNC LSD for 188K

S54B32 E36 M3 DTA S100 Sedan Street car full swap:

E30 M20 2,7L Alpina + Euro E46 320D ZF 6 speed install
