I saw that over at Bimmerforums...NICE work!!!....And thought is was not going anywhere last I heard?

I'd be interested but I'd have to reinvent "my" wheel- from throttle bodies to exhaust-since I'm using some exhaust manifolds of a Jap spec RHD M73 engine to clear my motor mounts...Cost comes into play plus any machining of the block.

My thoughts -FWIW- I have seen SO many attempts at the DOHC heads.. nothing is ever completed....never...

Why not just do a SOHC w/ great flow- using same intake & exhaust spacing. Just like the Aftermarket guys do w/ the Chevy LS motor. Same Idea- the M70/73 block is a GREAT design- oiling- forged internals...cooling...etc

They (Chevy tuners) are easily getting 500HP out of a 5.3l V-8- w/ a crappy oiling system by bolting on a set of OHV aluminum heads that are selling for under 3 grand and just ONE cam. The Holy Grail of DOHC seems less of a goal when a less technical motor is easily putting out more HP- less money and pretty reliable....

That being said- I sort did the same thing w/ my clutch /transmission set up- Used a BMW E31 flywheel and run a nice- bulletproof- inexpensive Chevy pressureplate and disc- just had to drill and pin the flywheel and I save at least a grand- PLUS I have a lot more choices.

For the trans- I made a bellhousing w/ a bolt pattern for the Chevy transmission- there are sooooo many choices for transmissions- not to mention gear ratios are easily changed inexpensively....

I would have to agree with that assessment on the heads, besides you would not have to come up with a drove arrangement for the 4 cams.

But I AM DEFINITLY interested!!!!!!!!
