What Does it Take to Rebuild a BMW M3 Engine? - E92 M3 - Project Frankfurt: Part 5

  • čas přidán 12. 09. 2023
  • In this episode, we are inspecting, cleaning and reconditioning all engine parts in preparation for the full engine rebuild of the M3 S65B40 V8 engine. We clean the crankshaft, take apart the oil pumps and cylinder heads, fix the stripped oil drain plug and take the block to H2 Motors, and recondition (hone) AluSil cylinder bores.

    Man, it's awesome to see Sreten is getting some great support from all these different places.
    The machine shop is just an incredible place, and the guys were genuinely happy to help out.
    This is only the beginning of great series!

      I definitely can not recommend H2Motors. I had my worst experience with this workshop: disorganized, incompetent, customer unfriendly and arrogant to boot! Timing not set correctly during engine overhaul and unable to detect the fault in two weeks. After that, H2M threatened me with legal action via lawyer that I am not allowed to claim this anymore. Mr. Huber, you and your store have remained in my very worst memory! I have never experienced any thing like that before!

    H2 Motors workshop is like a nirvana for BMW enthusiasts.. I cannot *believe* the amount of stock they have in terms of motors, etc. Truly incredible. Their combined knowledge must be enormous. Your E92 M3 is shaping up to be really, really special Sreten.. can't wait to see it all come together :-)

      Until recently it had to be torqued perfectly from the nut side, the perfectly good used bolt had to be replaced, now just tighten it up and foeget about it s good enough. I think our host is turning into a grizzled old school mechanic ;)

    I'm not a BMW guy, just an old petrol head, but I've got to say, I was blown away with the engine shop. What a fabulous 45 minutes of pure enjoyment. Those guys are not just engineers or craftsmen but artisans. Like Sreten, people who put their heart and soul into their work. Great credit all round.

    I want to suggest oiling up machined ferrite metal surfaces when you seal them in a plastic bag like the crankshaft. You still have a bit of air (with moisture) inside that bag and condensation might cause rust.
