    E39 camshafts.

    Obvious question maybe but if you are doing/ able to do the work why not source a 2.8 lump to build up and swap in?
  2. duncan-uk

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Funnily I have a set to fit too. Has him him duplicate the originals as dealer no longer in existence and mine are a bit ropey.

    Aah so you are not saying a drop in torque only that it will be higher up the rev range? Similar effect to a performance cam then - nothing for free!

    E39 camshafts.

    That i didn't know - i thought the engine was restricted for some reason (the 323i made 170bhp, the 328i made 193bhp which was just 1 up on the 192bhp of the 325i) i didn't realise it boosted torque

    On the 523i i believe you are better off fitting the M50B25 inlet manifold and throttle body with a remap which gives about 20 bhp i think. The 523i is a 2.5 engine and was strangled so as not to trump the 2.8 which is similarly strangled. Not sure cams alone would yield much for the effort and cost.

    Yes it was 8k when something very tidy was £2k

    Thing is something very tidy looking and usable is what 10k? Much as I fancy one I wouldn't pay £40k. With the low miles you'd ruin it by enjoying it. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Speed bumps damage

    I was looking at these corners when I did my TCA's as mine are smashed and I did wonder if the problem arises as to how rigidly mounted they are. About 6 bolts I think. I wonder if they had a bit of flex and if abs construction they might last better.

    Back on topic that looks nice. Enjoy. We will even let you stick around now you’re on the dark side!

    That's the sort of stupidity you'd need to have one....

    Leaving the Bavarian nest

    A more pointless car i can't imagine apart from that Lamborghini anus! I was thinking just today the best advice i could have given my younger self is buy a property as soon as you can. Not one you want to live in (mistake i made) but anything you can afford to rent out and get the capital growth. I was probably 3-4 years behind my contemporaries because of the studies i chose and boy is that reflected in the price we paid for our first properties... One lad left school at 16 and did an apprenticeship/ on the job training. Worked hard and is now sat in his house mortgage free whilst i have 15 years left However much you want that porker a mortgage free property once you're retired will be worth the sacrifice. Maybe we won't get there but our kids will benefit.

    Speed bumps damage

    They are the bane of my life though - half my routes out of town have them. Trouble is it's (as ever) sensible people who suffer, i care about my car and locality so i drive sensibly and slow down over the bumps gritting my teeth. Any work transit, company car, lease car, hire car, stolen car etc just treats them with disdain. Purely for scientific reasons i have driven a van over a speed bump at 30mph - it rides a lot better... I know why they exist but still i hate them!
