Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on

-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

          Ever think about refurbishing the kit (polish,powder coat, replacing hardware etc.)? Might be more appealing for someone to spend the 6k. Just my 2

            I have, and you make a good point. I saw two problems with that though. First it would cost about a grand, lets say, to get it refurbished. In which case, I'd rather just sell the kit for a grand less and have someone refurbish it the way they want. The price is negotiable after all. And the second is, if I refurbish it I may end up convincing myself to keep it... haha.

                          I saw this when you first posted it,but it's somehow more interesting today

                          Silly question perhaps, but did Dinah design this to go on a stock b25 long block or are there certain upgrades that need to or should be done ?

                            Hey Jeff! Sorry for the delay man. Not a silly question at all. The kit is designed specifically for the stock b25 long block. No upgrades are needed. The only modification needed to make it all work, is one of the turbo oil lines needs to be tapped either into the oil pan or the block itself. Dinan drilled toward the rear of the block just above the oil pan.

                              I have a similar install of the 'Dinan Turbo System'

                              This is in an 1988 325iX.



                              With the car's paperwork is a fax from Dinan, circa 2006, that laid out three options for the then-owner of the car:

                              • 2.7 stroker motor, "This motor will make 220hp."
                              • 2.5 liter turbo motor, "This motor will make 300hp." (it refers to using a 'factory long block')
                              • 2.7l stroker/turbo motor, "This motor will make 350hp."


                              My takeaway is that Dinan was fine with putting the turbo system on a stock motor.

                                Dinan seems to stay stock with the customer offerings. It is what helps the product line maintain BMW's blessing and warranty.

                                My E34 Dinan 5, even kept the stock PCV. When I was in touch with their warranty department, I was assured Dinan never modified the stock system.... simply added off the shelf SC parts.

                                Now thry did stroke many motors. I spoke w/ a big brother of my Dinan 5: an E38 Dinan 7. That m60B40 was stroked to b44 specs but really, it was just what BMW was about to do, or maybe even doing, with that motor anyhow, no?

                                All that to say, really the turbo, the plumbing and electronic box (Dinantronics XX) should give you a Dinan turbo.


                                Sure you don't want any trades ? Talking myself into this thing....;D
