Hey guys, here's a few pics of a current project. I started putting this engine together to replace the tired old original engine in my mid 90's BMW. But somewhere along the way I decided to make a left turn at Albuquerque and build an entirely different car around the engine...a T-bucket So first, the engine: Late 90's BMW M62B44 4.4L V8 short block A donor early 90's M60B40 4.0L V8 to sacrifice it's cylinder heads, cams and misc bits The M62 4.4L V8's pistons sit .025" above deck and I found them to have a dish to them. Measured roughly 4cc volume in piston dish. Cylinder heads back from machine shop rebuild: Measured roughly 52cc of volume in chambers: Opened up the bank2 coolant port to closer match the bank1 port: Torques heads down, used a 1.74mm MLS head gasket. Static compression ratio comes to roughly 9.6:1 Double roller timing chains from the early 4.0L V8: Degree'd in the cams. The aftermarket timing blocks were set up to time cams at 108 ° ICL & 108° LSA. I dialed them in for a 110° ICL and 112° LSA Introduce the belt driven intake manifold, Eaton M112 from a late 90's Jaguar. Using the jag water-air intercoolers and injection. Sitting on an adapter plate to bolt down to the BMW heads. I'm aiming for 8psi-10psi of boost Introduce the Nitrous Oxide: The gutted mid 90's BMW to donate it's 6 speed manual trans, clutch and misc hardware. I think by flipping the S65 exhaust manifolds they should clear the cab of a T-bucket body: That's where I'm currently at, I'm a couple months away from being able to order the chassis & frame. I will be using a CCR stage IV chassis set up for a jaguar rear end. I intend to use a standard non-channeled '23 bucket body, no bed/open rear. I've got my heart set on cowl steering. But we'll see what direction that goes when the time comes. The engine EFI management will be a system I'm familiar with and have used in the past called Speeduino, it uses an Arduino Mega2560. I've been running Speeduino on the now torn apart 90's BMW pictured above, it's a good system and I like it's versatility. Once the T project is up and running, driving and tuned well enough to cruise I will be embarking on a road trip from where I live in Arizona to Los Angeles, join the Hwy 1 in Santa Monica and cruise the 1 all the way north to San Francisco and beyond, Bodega Bay. The entire build and road trip will be a youtube series if you're interested in checking it out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JzPYmNx3jTQ Thanks for checking out my project!
