Thanks zander271 ...

I really think I would miss the low down torque of the TS (which is why I removed my centrifugal SC many years ago).
I really think the best compromise is a twin turbo setup or more definitely Davew's set up when he gets it on the road...

I got the Schricks into the spare engine over the week end but could not find the vanos anti-rattle kit to complete the vanos re-build to button the top back up, with the M56 cam/rocker cover.

The GSR Four-Bolt Oil Shaft arrived yesterday so that will go in today and button up the oil pan.

Found the Anti-rattle kit when I was looking for the ATI damper.

GSR all buttoned up.

Vanos all back in.

Difference between Beisan and OEM vanos piston spacer ring depth:

OEM:
E - 7.46 mm
A - 7.44mm

Beisan:
E - 7.28 mm
A - 7.24 mm

That took up the slack whilst adding some rolling resistance.
