    E46 M4 S54 build with 288/280 Schrick cams and cylinder head rebuild

    Thought this was more than worthy of a thread:

    I would like to start this thread off by thanking the people who have helped me throughout this month long project. Samo (samo6556), Alex (flipm3), Chris (abad46), Alex L (Alex Lipowich), Bogus (CM-2), and my buddy Quinn from Patrick BMW with the parts hookup as always! Whether it was wrenching late, lending tools/parts, or…. Click here to enlarge…, you guys really helped me out throughout all this. Couldn't have done it without ya. I'm glad it's finally done though.

    I've been posting bits and pieces of my build in my journal. With all things I do with this car, I seem to go "all out" at one time. It's just what makes sense to me even though it's more down time and of course more cost all at once.

    The initial plan was to install:


    Schrick 288/280 Standard Lift Cams
    Beisan Oil Pump Disk
    Beisan VANOS Seals Repair Kit
    Beisan VANOS Sealing Plate Repair Kit
    Beisan VANOS Rattle Repair Kit
    Rebuilt OE Fuel Injectors (RC Engineering)
    SPAL Electric Fan
    OE Gaskets/Chain Guide/Etc.

    My plan with the head was to have a valve job done with new seals, resurface/deck, and then machine the exhaust ports using specs abad46 found from World Challenge.

    According to World Challenge, the exhaust runners in head may be machined into 41.5mm circle centered on OEM exhaust port. Exhaust runner divider may be machined a max of 25.4mm from head face, and shall be a min of 2.5mm thick. More info can be found here

    http://www.sccaproracing.com/files/V...M3%20-%200.pdf

    As much as we were interested in doing this, it turned into more than we thought. We tested it on the spare head I bought which was perfect.

    Back from the machine shop.

    As you can see, with these specs, it would require a full P&P, something I didn't really have the funds to do so. Sure I could have left it as is, but who knows what effect the non-rounded edges would have. It's a good thing we tested on the spare head. Sort of bummed, but can't do everything sometimes Click here to enlarge

    So I told the machine shop to assemble my head without doing any of that work.

    Real head back in my possession! Looks awesome Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    Due to not having an exhaust that fits, and not wanting to start the car with open headers so we could hear the motor, this was our only option….Click here to enlarge

    Since the plan was to track the following day, we needed to mock up an exhaust that would be acceptable.

    OE Muffler and SS Res X-Pipe installed. Samo and Alex both coming in clutch with supplying necessary hardware from their dealerships Click here to enlarge

    Click here to enlarge

    And then we cut the flanges off an OE Section 1 at 1 A.M. outside my house with a sawzaw. Neighbors loved that! And made this… contraption using Autozone 2.5" band clamps Click here to enlarge

    A little visit to Mexico Muffler the next morning... Click here to enlarge Click here to enlarge

    They were scared to put the car on the lift, so I basically did everything Click here to enlarge

    And here we are. Stepped up the OE Section 1 as much as they could. $30 not bad! Still leaks but ehh, only temporary. It gets the job done.

    Before Dyno. Mods in Video.

    After Dyno (to be continued...) Mods in Video



    Okay so after around 12 hours of tuning and over 60 pulls on the dyno, here is our progress so far.

    First off I would like to thank Sal from Evolve and how thankful we all are to be working with someone like him. With his driving compassion, patience, and perseverance, myself and others just can not thank him enough. Staying up until 3 A.M UK time twice to dyno tune, with all of our crazy schedules to get this nailed down! Okay on to what we have done so far.

    All graphs in SAE, and 8200 RPM redline. Tune was calibrated with the valve closed to get the best AFR reading possible, also to not blow our eardrums... Also I am retaining the MAF, not running AlphaN, no CSL CF airbox, no bored TB's, and no headwork. Even though all of those will come in time Click here to enlarge

    Closed Valved Comparison:
    007 - Pre Cams

    023 - Post Cams + Tune

    Click here to enlarge

    Closed vs Opened Comparison:
    021 - Closed
    023 - Open

    Click here to enlarge

    As you can see here, I am making some very good power. Both area under the curve, and peak numbers. Low end well, is hard to compare. With big cams, people assume you will lose low end power. Its hard to discern considering I switched my exhaust setup drastically, but the low clearly exists! The mid range, well you can see there is slight loss, but only 5-7whp/wtq, which is barely noticeable on the street. WOT going through the gears, every upshift drops down to 6500 RPM, so the dip is outside of the upshift range WOT. Top end, well NUTS!

    Drivability, just awesome on the street. Idle is perfect, part throttle mapping is spot on, partial to full throttle transition is smooth, and the delivery is just NUTS! We haven't even really worked much on these maps yet and it can only get better from here!

    During the last dyno session, I hit the flash counter, so we had to postpone the rest of the tuning, which worked out actually. I am experiencing an odd fueling issue, which is heavily affecting the AFR making it rich, losing power, especially in the midrange, why there is a loss currently.

    Ruling out the fuel pump, injectors, vacuum leaks, etc, I am left with the fuel pressure regulator. We have reason to believe that it is stuck open and just dumping too much fuel. So I will be replacing that, reseting the flash counter, and strapping down on the dyno hopefully this week if all works well. Due to this issue, Sal felt safe to be relatively conservative while tuning, especially with the ignition and VANOS maps. So there IS more left on the table, we just don't know exactly how much with my limiting intake components. Only time will tell!

    That is an incredible build/writeup, and makes me want to buy an E46 M again... This motor is just ridiculous when done right like this - that's basically E9x M3 power levels. I love it... Congrats.

    Now if someone would just build an S65 for max NA hp already.

    What do you think is the most power you could get out of it without NOS or boost?

    520 whp and still streetable. Maybe more if you really push the envelope but ~520 would be my figure.

    These are not Schrick race cams they still keep it relatively streetable. If you went more aggressive you would probably have to delete VANOS.

    I read through again and don't see him mention race but maybe I'm wrong? From what I understand these are Schrick street cams.

    It's an honor to have you posting in this thread! I told Sal that I really want to get in touch with you in regards to some other projects.In this build, we did not use the Shrick DLC Followers since majority of the race teams here in the States have told me they are not necessary. We are keeping the redline to 8200RPM as well. If my friend decides to redo the whole valve train, along with proper port and polishing, Shrick DLC Followers will possibly be on the list.[QUOTE=G0TB00ST?;529106]Not gonna lie I'm kinda jealous... I wonder if a similar set up would be ok for daily driving?[/QUOTE @evolve has tuned quite a few Schrick'd S54s here in the States. Every single one has had perfect daily drivability.

    No FMU stocks for this car...but the build will be taking a fun turn in the right direction. As you suggested....CF Airbox and Ported TBs should be installed by the end of January or February.

    He's making more power than my stock E90 M3 on the same dyno using the same grade Shell VPower 93 Octane!

    We'll be finding out hopefully soon!These are Schrick 288/280 Standard Lift cams. They are the "middle grade" cams that can still retain the VANOS. There are several more aggressive specifications than this. These cams were chosen due to their ability to still retain low-end power/torque all the while being a top end screamer.

I told Sal that I really want to get in touch with you in regards to some other projects.In this build, we did not use the Shrick DLC Followers since majority of the race teams here in the States have told me they are not necessary. We are keeping the redline to 8200RPM as well. If my friend decides to redo the whole valve train, along with proper port and polishing, Shrick DLC Followers will possibly be on the list.
    The reason I asked is because usually the followers wear out even stock.
    I always use the Schrick followers(which are cheaper than the original BMW ones,BTW).

    Have to make a thread about the S54 I built over here when I got some time.
    Sal came over for a weekend for the name giving of my son(he is his god father) and the next day we mapped the car on the road.
    Is not that easy to calibrate a setup like this for perfect throttle response,idle and driveablity.

    Did you also notice how much torque the car has mid range?

    The acceleration in 3rd gear is just entertaining!

    I will shoot you a pm with my details that you can get in touch with me.

    BTW,it is possible to keep the Vanos even with a more aggressive cam setup...

    The cam follower wear was one of our worries as well, but from a lot of the race shops and engine builders I spoke to, they said it should be fine. Hopefully we don't run into issues!!!

    YES!!! Please share more about that S54. I was jealous when Sal told me he'd be visiting you for the weekend. I bet that motor is a beast. Click here to enlarge

    With the Schrick profile cams, you can retain VANOS with 280/272 Std Lift, 288/280 Std Lift, 304/296 Std Lift, 288/280 High lift. VANOS should be deleted with 304/296 High Lift Click here to enlarge

    We'll get in touch very soon!

    man, port and polish is the only way to go, shoulda done it while it was off (or sent the new head off so you didnt have to wait)

    it picks up SO MUCH when a competent guy does your porting/flowing.

    We'll be finding out hopefully soon!These are Schrick 288/280 Standard Lift cams. They are the "middle grade" cams that can still retain the VANOS. There are several more aggressive specifications than this. These cams were chosen due to their ability to still retain low-end power/torque all the while being a top end screamer.
    That's what I figured and it makes complete sense to me. Looks to be a great choice.

    I thought s54 head is pretty maxed out?
