    very interesting thread , in france we love the M57 engine a friend have one page of mapping " http://bmwmapping.eu "

    we have a few 335d full modded : R90 HPFP and 2000b mod injection , Catless DFP delete downpipes , hybrid turbo KP26 hybrid and KP39 hybrid , FMIC , swirl delete , egr removal , and make 470 WHP and 960-1000nm (710-740 Ft/lbs) , working and few new mods on this engine , but the m57 head is very restrictive , have some new hybrid turbos in development (the turbo look like a garrett GT35 adapted to the KP26 turbine core.

    Finally i find someone putting their hands inside the M57

    I will soon to replace the timing chain of my 35d engine (272hp version) due to mileage. At the same time i plan to put ARP head studs from WPI, stronger valves springs from bimmertune (+30% stronger), 286hp version intake valves (27.4mm vs 25.9mm) and ported head job.

    My goal is true 500hp on straight diesel. My current level is at 440hp and 850nm with just bolt-ons: hybrid turbos, wagner intercooler with 63.5mm full piping and custom exhaust (76mm from turbo to rear axle and then 2x 63.5mm - M5 exhaust rear end style).

    Do you know other places that sell arp studs and spring valves?

    WPI sells both the studs and can source Hamilton Springs.

    Just an update - the first wax model piston has been cut. Adjustments are being made for the tool path and a different lollipop bit is needed for the underside of the skirt.

    Also - the cnc machine being used to cut the pistons is finishing a large run of replacement knee's...so we are getting closer on the pistons.

    My guy from UK tried to buy from whitbread their studs and spring valves. He was a hard guy to catch and sound a fishy deal. Unfortunally didn't found anyone with arp studs, so went with stock studs and bimmertune spring valves. The idea is also to increase hp via higher headflow and not higher boost. Engine is already making steady +2.5bar and 3 bar of peak.
