Why would you need to bore to a 3.0? You already have the 3.0 block.

the m52 came in a 3.0? I thought the 328 was a 2.8.

He could do a crank, pistion, cams, and porting and have tons of power to put through a new diff.

Well, if I remember correctly, the ALL the M52/M54 Engines have the same bore, and you can't go much bigger (if at all) the displacement increases comes through the increased stroke.

Ya there's pretty much NO room to bore the engines out. The stroker kids are insanely expencive though.

apologizes...i did mean stroke, and pistons deal...but as stated, it is very expensive, and a bit technical for me. Which is why ill jus wait for the lotto and snag a 1 or 335.

I feel like an idiot, I'm dying to get this sh!t on but I'm stuck with the same problem I've been experiencing for the past 2 weeks, so I dont want to upgrade anything yet until I get it fixed....I've changed spark plugs/VCG/Oil Filter Housing Gasket/CCV (most of these needed to be changed anyway) but the rough idle and hesitation are still there. I cleaned the MAF and it helped for a couple days, then went back to doing it again. So I'll replace the MAF and then O2 sensors next. All that money could have been used for my new filter/velocity stack/dyno/re-tune.

I got it from another member since they dont make it anymore for the 330. I think they still have one for the 328 though..I'm sure with a coupler you can fit it on yours!

Bore would be very costly and prob not worth it, cams are great though!

Replaced the MAF with a newer one today. Just drove around for 20 mins, so far so good!

Im doing a dyno session tomorrow morning at 11am! This is gonna be with my current intake. I'm ordering the 6" filter and velocity stack tonight, once that's on I'll do a new dyno.

Hey guys, I went to the dyno with stav to do my car too, here are his numbers. He was misfiring at idle still and I think that his o2 sensors are mixed up. However he still put down 203 with those problems which is pretty damn good. Here is the graph...


also if you notice his car is running really rich because of it, im sure once he gets it fixed these numbers will shoot up
