Mein Auto: e36 bmw
the m50 engine is a high reving engine and mine is very unhappy till about 3000 rpms then it wants to fly. i guess its because the 3.31 bore and short stroke of 2.95. i rebuilt mine and was amazed at how beefy the rods where! but 189hp is a far cry from 600hp! just like 600hp is a far cry from the raw power of a full nhra 8000hp! so if its not pulling hard enough i suppose u need an m5 a BMW with a v8 v10 or v12 4cyls and 6cyl are for milage
