Been looking at upgrading the extra cyclinder head I have with some supertech valve springs and s50 cams,

Supertech Springs = $550 ish depending on where I pick them up
s50 cams = around $300, saw a couple used sets for sale for around that price

been looking into a clutch upgrade, but I don't believe there is an upgrade for my tranny. I am unsure of the model or name of my tranny but I know its different then every other bmw's other then the e36 320i non a/c and my model which is also non a/c (according to realoem.com)... the a/c models have different flywheels and also have different trannys, it looks like im gunna get my clutch rebuilt with better materials so it can handle larger amounts of torque before it slips

p.s. George what was the crank you mentioned I should get? s50 crank?

For your boat the longest stroke is ideal,so try to look for a s52 crank.I might have an s50 which is 85.8 mm stroke,should be good too

What does the longer stroke help with? Wouldnt it make more compression?

Im not sure what stroke the m50b20 has either... ill do some research

Found out my stroke is only 66mm, i could even upgrade to a m50b25 crank which would give me 75mm.

Along with the crank do the rods need to be replaced? Im thinkin if the piston throw is longer it will throw the piston into the hesd or valves... am i right?

Yes,depending on which crank you use,you need the proper conrods and pistons.

Messed up stuff happend, my friend was infront of me and a drunk driver rear ended him and took off, so i followed him, he turned down a side street floooooored it and when he came to a turn he understeered and hit the curb.... worse then that.... he hit the curb and bounced off and hit a mazda head on at like 80 km+, everyone is ok, but in the end i got a ticket for careless driving... pretty much cuz i followed him at high speeds while i tried to get his plate number, sooo if i dont beat the ticket in cpurt, no more licence for a while and hopefully i can wrk on ma car a bunch

Whooa. That's a weird story, glad everyone is ok! What did the drunk guy said when he got out of his car? I'd be mad angry at him, no regrets for drunk drivers...

How's your compression? rings maybe?

Only other thing I can think of is HG (getting in through the oil passages), or possibly your CCV, but I can't remember how you vented it...

Well I'd say typically both seals go bad, which is when you start seeing smoke out of the exhaust pipe because you're burning oil. However I guess it would be possible for only one seal to go bad which would cause blow by to exit via the oil return. This could also be bad because it may prevent oil feed to the bearing as well, although the chances of that are probably unlikely.

Is there any oil on the inside of your IC piping?

The only problem im having is that the car only did it when i replaced my old turbo with this one. My old ebay turbo didnt make my oil foam but this one started during the first drive after i installed it. I thot it was oil foaming but i wasnt sure how it was foaming. I contacted tcd but he said my turbo isnt my issue. Which makes no sense cus i blocked off the intake and pressurized only the turbo.
