The CSF radiator's part number is 7046 for my 6AT. The MT part number is 7045. CSF has been in the radiator business for probably 3+ decades. It's just a new name for our platform....

I've had a CSF radiator for about 3 years and it's really come alive after MHD put in an option for the user to choose lower target water temps. Lower water temps also help lower oil temps.

If you decide to rebuild your engine, I highly recommend ditching BMW bearings. They're soft and expensive. It's a pain to decode the exact combination of colors you need. You need to look at serial...

These are expensive beasts to feed. You should literally have a few thousand in the bank ready to throw at the car, just to make it run optimally at FBO.

Of course there's a lot of time and labor involved, but an engine swap is plug and play.
I'm not sure about 535's, but some of the older 335's had 6-bolt pattern flywheels. Most are 8-bolt pattern.

Reminds me of Volvo's "PowerPulse" system. I wonder if that system ever proved to reduce lag. They use an air compressor to fill air in a small tank. When requested, air is shot into the turbine

To get to 600whp, you will need both upgraded turbos and port injection.

Test it again warm and with another compression tester.
There's not much variance between the cylinders. When there's an issue, it's usually only the bad ones that are way off from the others.

The N54's bearings are very stout and don't wear out like on the S85. They only really spin/fail due to oil starvation (this happened to me). Even at 650whp, your cylinders will probably oval before...
