If you ever decide to start making products for other BMW engines, do consider taking a look at the cam-bolt issue that S54s go through. Sometimes it's referred to as the "VANOS bolt" issue. It caused catastrophic failures in several M3s (and probably other S54 equipped cars), and the rest of us check our bolts every 15-30k miles just in case. I'd gladly pay for a permanent solution, even if it cost as much as $500
Thanks,

I love this kind of input. I think of this business as a joint venture with the BMW community.

BTW- I am in the market for a used and abused, or blown, M62tuB44 engine for cheap. I want one for product developement and fitment. You 540i guys please let me know if this is the most common engine platform.
