Thought I'd bump this thread rather than make a new one. The bearings are gone in my car, makes a horrible rattle as I drive so I'm taking the box out to rebuild it.
I'll be using all new bearings and shift forks for gears 1-4. My engine builder said I should install new syncros while it's out...
I did have an air lock as I have bypassed the head exchanger, but I thought I had fixed it... Maybe not.
Was unsure the potential cause for such a problem. But if air locks could cause what I described I will search a little harder. I do hear a few air bubbles when the run after pump is going...
So the car is back at the tuners for MORE BOOST!! Hoping to get near 500hp :D
Also needs some gear compensation as I'm only hitting 23psi in second.
In other news, the coolant expansion tank likes to sit very low. Coolant will overflow after I turn the car off if I top it up anymore. When I...
FYI - I am going to be putting some more boost through my car to see how much power I can make and I would imagine I'll be right on the limit of the fuel lines as I'm running e85. Given it's currently 460hp at the hubs, and e85 requires about 30% extra fuel, the stock lines seem to be doing well...
Well just got the car back.. it went a lot better than we all expected.
On 98 the only runs 1.3 bar (I didn't want much on 98 due to the high compression) and makes 330whp. Am yet to experience this because the car currently has e85 in it, and that is where the magic happens.
460 WHP!!! This...
Well I'm running a stroker and gtx30 and although I'm not running high boost yet, it drives very well off boost. Plenty more torque at low revs than my 320i
No low pressure warning on dash? Or did it all happen in an instant?

Yes but then you would need a t-piece with the cam and crank breathers both going to go in the catch can to one 19mm breather and out the can with another 19mm breather + the 8mm breather.
it would be better if they can both enter the catch can separately
was it high crankcase pressure that caused the oil explosion? what PCV setup were you running?
If you were happy with the drivability off boost I wouldn't worry about the stroker, but I am currently running a stroker and it drives a dream off boost
