Actually from what I've heard, the early model E39 with the M62 and a 6spd was faster than the Vanos engines. But on another note too, someone won't have to worry about the timing chain guides either

Timing guides problem is just about the same with the old ones...But they do have much better power potentials; much better intake (same as 4.6is good for 340HP), same exhaust manifolds as M5 (good for 400Hp), only 2 cats and not 4 like the new ones...Bottom line, a slightly built M62 will take an M62TU anyday!

I think your talking about the early 1998 540 6-speed I would agree.
