Head reworking by discovery automotive

The guys at discovery seem to have pretty good skills in upgrading M3 engine's head for FI.Is this work (bigger valves,P&P ,cams) realy effective in comparison of bolt on kits?

Click the link in my sig for the actual build process and thanks for the praise.

Timeline: Well it looks as though my car maybe my Christmas present this year - as that is the timeline we seem to be leaning towards taking into account shipping from the West Coast to the East.

I may have her back sooner, but i am not pushing. It will be done when it is done. I cant drive it really till next spring anyway, so not a big deal.

As far as HP is concerned. 600-650chp - that is the range we have been throwing around. Just have to wait and see what the "REAL" final numbers are.

Thank you


I am actually looking to change the wheels one more time. I think I can squeeze in some larger lips in the front, so it maybe time to sell these and have HRE build me a new set of C20's

I am thinking 2" Front Lip and 3" Rear Lip (So the rear doesnt change) I need to give them a call and see what the deal would be.

I'm running at low boost right now, so I'd venture to say that I have about 420chp and 380ctq or so. With the new SW and injectors, it's a new story. We'll see. The motor is built and it's begging for more boost!
