Re: 2003 525I turbo?

Well you have options. A methanol kit will fix that or race gas. Or you can tune the VANOS I would imagine.

Re: 2003 525I turbo?

I can respect that. The 4.8L V8 in my 550I just makes it feel slow but its a good running motor, especially on the top end. I may just take your advice and see what some bolt ons can do. I may do...

Re: 2003 525I turbo?

Dropping a Chevrolet motor in a BMW is an abomination.

Re: 2003 525I turbo?

So this engine isn't strong enough to turbo charge? I was going to do a custom kit. I know I'll have to put about $10,000 which is what its worth. I'm not sure. I want a big turbo that doesn't spool...

Re: 2003 525I turbo?

Only other question is, where can I get a locking differential? So I'm not dealing with the open one. The suspension is good too?

Re: 550i Slow crank?

Is that normal at this mileage? My 1995 540i with 135k needed an alternator at that age, but this car is babied. Is it possible to get a bad factory one.

Re: 550i Slow crank?

That's what I thought. I looked at the service records and the battery was changed once already. The car only has 45k on the odometer.

550i Slow crank?

So I have a 2008 550i sport and it cranks very slowly and then once it fires it starts very quickly. Almost sounds like a weak starter. Is this normal? Anyone else experiencing this?

Well I want both eventually, but I can't do it all at once. I think the headers will require a tune and the X-pipe should increase scavenging. Hopefully it goes well. Thanks man.

Yeah me too. But its just throttle response that sucks. Either use sport mode , reset the car, or get a tune. I'm doing the first two, first then doing the tune later. Kinda want headers.
