I think this size is chosen in place. As it was written above, for this purpose it is possible to use measuring plates.

0.8mm or thinner depending how much the cast has collapsed. A little tight fitment is good, assembly tapping with a hammer.

Is your BMW 6 speed tranny from a E90 330d car? Are there other BMW models carrying that transmission because these 330d are a pretty rare sauce over here!

E90/91 325, 330, same age 525, 530D and some other diesel models have bigger GS6-53DZ. Smaller engines have GS6-37DZ which can take at least 700Nm. I have this behind my milder 6-cyl. A search with tranny models shows where you can find one. I've bought all but one from Germany or UK through Ebay, here those are more expensive.

V8 gasoline engine tranny(-BZ) has bigger bellhousing than diesel. Diesel bellhousing is better for conversion, diameter fits quite nicely together with whiteblock AW, M90 and 5-cyl M56 bellhousing.

Funny how in Europe diesel is more common and as well more manual transmission cars. Makes building/modifying easier in this case.

And how much power and torque can withstand m90 for white block?

By the way, I have long met with information that some Finnish guys used a cast-iron 5-cylinder block from a diesel engine, on a gasoline engine, and got a power of about 1100 hp.

In my use M90 took 700Nm for some time and then broke teeth between input and side shafts. Some have used bigger torque without problems. And some have broken earlier.

Yeah, D5/2.4D block is stronger but naturally isn't just a bolt-on. Haven't had the need to study it more. Perhaps JuhaU could tell more what is needed? I recall that he has done it.

Yes, I thought it was him. I saw a photo on his page.

You mentioned E85 later in the thread.

But did you change injectors, ECU tune, or change MAP sensor for the addition of the Turbo on top of the stock 1.8 Motronic?

I like the idea of a straight forward low boost conversion. The idea would be to use a S80 T6 manifold and Turbo (T16?) setup on the 960 motor. Seems like a direct fit, maybe.

Thanks!

T6 injectors and around around 0.5-1bar higher fuel pressure. Otherwise stock. There is no MAP sensor in 960/x90.

When using T6 exhaust manifolds you'll need to fab flanges for the manifold side and runners to the turbo flange.
