        Nice car, but
        I assume it´s a hoax that
        the M-Gmbh builted 4 2,8l engines....
        it "sound´s" special >57000 Euros.

            2.8 S14, ouch! I guess that if only 4 such motors have been built, it must be difficult to get parts. And what would you do with a car that you can't run for fear of frying the motor. as soon as another motor with different specs is installed, the car looses all its collectability. Several ex-ETCC or Italian Championship M3s have been sold this side of the ocean. They collected around $75K/$80K usd.

              Maybe now's a good time to play stump the chump. Can anybody guess what that mystery appendage is cast into the back of the cam tray? (Pic linked from www.carclassic.com).



              BTW, I'll tell you right now, I'm on the chump side of the house. I have a few ideas but I've never confirmed it.

              Enjoy,

                Way left Field......

                A 2nd timing chain driven off the back side of the engine (Flywheel?)

                I claim total ignorance and hope someone knows the real answer!!

                  BTW, this was posted to the SIG a few years ago when I asked the same question. It has yet to be answered!

                  My money is on it being a drive pulley for an alternator. Notice one isn't visible on the front of the engine. What you do see up front is just an oil pump, hence the toothed belt.

                    Would they run the Alt. off the cams at 1/2 engine speed? That doesnt make sense to me. I guess you could gear it either way.

                    What would the hose be for then?

                      The hose you see that appears to go into the 'thing' is actually coming from that little hard coolant line underneath the throttlebodies and going over the expansion tank.

                      As for the cams being 1/2 the speed, if you consider how big the alt pulley was on the later DTM engines I'd say running it off one of the cams would be a good idea.

                        uhh....
                        I think I have to withdraw my opinion. :Apu:
                        As I saw this cast stuff, I daught wow, no one other than BMW could introduce such
                        pieces...... (?) But only 4 times ?

                        Now I´m really disconcertet. :rolleyes:

                        What´s the point of this "alternator side change"

                        Was it to bring masses more to the center of the car ? :idea:

                        ....Or is it a dry sump pump ????

                          That's what I was thinking. It may also serve to give a more efficient pulley set up verses the huge one used on the DTM M3's.

                          The dry sump pump seems to be where the alt and pwr steering pump was. See the toothed belt?

                            good point.
                            And where´s the Powersteering pump and container ?

                            btw is it computationally possible to
                            reach 2800 cm and wouldn´t it be a problem to ignite and burn the mixture with such a big bore ?
                            Porsches Carrera 2 & 4, they are twin sparks with a bore 100mm.
                            Ok they are 8V´s not 16V....

                              Looks to be a manual rack.

                              I'm assuming they do more than bore and stroke. Personally, I think the only way is to raise the block deck (height) to allow for more stroke. But I'm only guessing here. Interesting stuff to say the least!

                              Dolate Racing has a 2.8L I think; 420hp or something like that. Crazy stuff!
