Ah, nevermind on the ITB comment then. Just thought it might make the car more enjoyable without being crazy.

I doubt the damper for the serpentine setup is any different than the V-belt internally. Maybe some provision difference for the hub, but not to the elastomer itself. The change in belt/pulley would...

Fuse box bulkhead connector?

All, I did some searching with no luck. I figured someone will know of a car that has done this or has put thought into doing the same thing and have some ideas.

The woodruff key should just be for indexing/locating. Parts on the crank snout are held in place by clamping force and a tight slip fit. This is why the crank nut is torqued so much!

I wouldn’t...

In low RPMs yes, in high RPMs the long crank of the I6 gets nasty for torsional vibration. This is why the non-M I6 engines are designed for lower RPM. Performance I6 has a different damper system...

FWIW I looked up the block/rotating assembly weights in RealOEM.

M42: 35.5kg (78lb)
M54: 35.0kg (77lb)
N52: 33.0kg (73lb)

Take the weights with a little grain of salt. Bottom line though is...

Do we have the weight of a similar M54 block? Jaker probably knows it, or PEI330CI.

This design is a lot better than the “other” style. I agree with diggers comments as a good place to add bracing to tie things together better.

As mentioned, you added a lot of plating which will...

Yes! I can only assume the engine will be more popular now that there are swap tune options. Its different enough from the M5x series that information is not transferable.
