Dinan M6 Turbo on Racecarsdirect

Saw this pop up yesterday.

High miles to be putting a turbo on one unless there was other work done to the long block?

No connection to it myself, but thought you'd be interested here.

Re: Sideloader Ratios

Yes more plates gives more lockup, but I don't know the actual %'s. Preload is the force required to turn one output flange independently from the other without any input load. BMW supplied lsd's have a preload in the region of 50 to 100 ftlb. This is what you measure to see if a std LSD is worn or ...

Re: Sideloader Ratios

I think the only difference may be if there is a different bolt pattern on the ring gear. I am not sure if it is the side plate or the ring gear but there is a difference where one uses 8 bolts and the other 10. So if in the ring gears it's a problem. And yes there should never be a problem switchi...

Re: hi guys i have run into a problem so can i get some help and guydens?

What I meant was, you cannot bolt a gearbox from an M30 onto the S54. Without serious cutting and alloy welding anyway. The M10 (4 cyl) shares its bellhousing bolt pattern with the M30, however the gearbox's for the M10 are usually not as strong as an M30 variant. In my opinion the diff will have no...
