Following on from the 2012 build which can be found at: http://www.sxoc.com/vbb/showthread.p...Project/page10 . This year I have decided to ditch the Sr20det in favour of the 4.4ltr M62 BMW V8. Donor car was a 540, engine came with a 6 speed gearbox, M5 clutch and associated bits.
To begin I removed the old Sr20det, I loved the engine, its ran problem free all year but with the cost of going stage3 for more ponies, its was financially more viable to go V8 and with there being less component to go wrong it seemed like the sensible option, we will find out whether or not this is true I’m sure.
