    The S200SX is a really good choice for a M50. But I recommend the S200SX-E with a small exhaust housing and use Twinscroll!

    Good luck with your build.

    Best Regards, ludi

    How come you are using 318 pistons? Lower compression?

    What's the reason for going M50 over the M54?

    Any idea what compression you're gonna have in the end? What headgasket are you using?

    Looks like a really interesting engine build.

    A friend is currently assembling the parts for an M54B30 crank into M52 stroker turbo, he was planning to use a decompression plate/spacer plate but I will send him this way for a look.
